    Yeah, I was just gonna say that it sounds an awful lot like DOM from the original UT. Could be a lot of fun, but I'll have to wait and see.

    50 points for destroying the core? I think that's a little over the top. I think 5 is a better number.

    So how is this a 'competitive' variant of ONS ???
    Does it 'competitive' mean the modified variant sucks, but the creators only think it doesn't ?

    Sounds like a mix of DOM and ONS, I`d go in one certain direction. I have vehicle flag domination and ONS (surprise!) that`s enough fo rthe mom.

    maybe if you get rid of destroyable cores?

    It's "competitive" because the creator says so. :p

    Players should be rewarded for making a team effort and not just hogging the flag for example. Your score in the end should reflect your contribution and not just how many frags you have made in game types other than DM or TDM. i like the idea of this gametype but it sounds like it needs to go a few steps further to reward players.

    First release can be found here:

    http://www.teamk1.com/onslaught/viewtopic.php?t=1007

    It has a modified scoring structure from the beta release. I would sugget playing several maps with the mutator before making asumptions/conclusions. Most people that have played it prefer it over Epic's scoring system.

    Our friends at Pure certainly have an interesting take on what it takes to make a good game.

    UTWARZONE
    UTWAR
    Node Master
    UT Counter Strike
    Node War


    Edit: There should be a max score that a team can get. This max score would get smaller as the game drags on. So a team would want to end the game faster, so the score will be higher.

    Actually, ONS out of the box has a number of limitations as a competitive game type, and if you don't know what they are, then you haven't really played it competitively. Imo there's nothing wrong with someone trying to make the game better for a competitive environment.

    Yeesh, sometimes the people here on BU are just as idiotic towards the competitive community as certain doorknobs from the competitive community are towards people who just prefer to pub.

    Knee-jerk reactions, anyone?

    I didn't say it was a good mod, and neither did Sofaking. You need to try it out for yourself to see if you like it or not. It certainly does make up for a number of things the ONS community wants in stock ONS.

    Huggy: Pure and Sofaking are two different affiliations. Its not like Sabotage or Hooloovoo helped make this mod.

    Fro: good points... but... err.... don't you uh... NOT PLAY ONS. YEAH THAT'S RIGHT GTFO
