why there are only teammatchs on the inf and not deathmatch servers?

all the servers that i saw where teammatch, why?

Simple: DM sucks for INF so servers don't use it. Think of it this way. 10 players. thats equivelant to 10 armies of 1 person fighting at the same time. How realistic is that? :)

it maybe not realistic as team match but its hell of a fun!

and there are time that you wish it was a death match so you could stick up grenade in one of your annoying teammates

I think that if there are going to be any deatmatch servers, It will end up in a couple of snipers falling asleep on hilltops or campers sitting in the corner of a room , nobody will be the first one to move, because they have no teammembers to follow or to cover.
All other players just like teamplay, so it will only be the lamers that are gonna play DM.
At least, that's my opinion

Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I've heard the problem with deathmatch in INF is spawn camping / spawn kills.

I was always a big fan of AQ2 deathmatch, so I might try it sometime.

Maybe it sucks or maybe its cool, we will never know if we can't play it.
I think they should give us some DM servers to try it out.

Ok, well currently I'm trying out CTF. Maybe I will run a DM trial later.

Never played it online?
is it intersting?
is it fun like the team match(the most of the time is each man to himself and not a temamatch)?

Well, basically no one has played it so I'm going to change back to teamgame real soon now.

Plus its kinda buggy.

The other main problem w/ INF & Deathmatch is the maps. At least with the official INF maps, they're all designed for team spawns, meaning the spawn points are clustered together in the red & blue spawn areas. So if you were playing regular DM in a well-populated server, it would be an immediate blood bath at the start of every round.
