    Personally, I think the developers deserve to have the other weapons tested to their fullest extent before people are permitted to use instagib. I'm waiting for the full version.

    What a tragic day...hopefully, Epic will patch the demo and get rid of that crap. I swear if I enter one server in the demo and it's IG, i'm going to cry.

    i see i wasnt ever alone in my detest for instagib. good.

    and yes, i think everyone ought to be playtesting the current weapons.. there isnt much to balance/work on with a 1 shot 1 kill wep.
    go away instagibbers..before u ruin 2k4 for me th way you ruined UT.

    (i wonder if instagibbers realize that they arent really helping the entire community with their game?)

    As much as I LOVE instagib, I am SICK of how many servers there are for it. :hmm:

    That's not very nice Selerox. Not all IG players are stupid. I agree with Warden, I don't think servers being dominated by insta-gib will be a problem at this point. The servers are packed as it is, even with all the normal weapons. If people choose to play IG, let them have it. Like it or not, IG will always be popular. I for one enjoy a good round of IG every now and then. :instagib:

    Why the hell would you buy a game replete with new weapons, gametypes, vehicles, then be incredibly stupid and say "duh I don't want to use any of that! Give me ONE gun!"

    Knuckle-dragging is putting it lightly.

    I don't mind an instagib game now and then, but what is the point of playing the UT2004 demo with it? It would be the same as playing UT2003 ig, but with less maps.

    There is no debate. Playing with multiple weapons that must be learned how to counteract each other, or playing with one weapon I can spam all day long and never run out of ammo (and get ikills in the prodcess.) I wonder.

    I think Insta players play it cause they can actually get frags that way. I remember I was playing Insta once in UT99 and I had mastered the top tactic of it (aka spam everywhere.) I fragged Rev._Whoopass. I never would have killed him with normal weapons. But hey, since even a shaved gorilla could kill the guy with a thousand frags on the board, I guess I can see how people might play it. "Oh look, now I can get kills! YAY!"

    I like Low G CTF and LMS with insta, but I sure as hell don't want 50% of the servers to be that way, thats lame as hell. A few good games of insta are great fun for me, but the way it dominates server listings pisses me off now. :(

    At least even the IG'ers (Karnage) recognize there is a glut of servers ut there.

    yeah it's just too bad no one has the sense to do anything about it and start taking some of them down.

    I've never understood the point of Instagib and I never will, though for large amounts of people to play it there's got to be some sort of mystique to it for it to be so popular. I could make the same arguments about strategy and skill that have been raged on for as long as Instagib has existed...but that'd be a waste of all our time.

    I didn't play UT2003 much but I did play UT a lot and I did find that there was a much larger population (at least, in my estimation) that played with the normal weapons. Perhaps, with how crappy UT2003 turned out for regular weapon gaming and how UT2004 is playing, this will bring balance to the Force? If not...let's hope regular weapons prevail.

    People put IG servers up because they want them that way. You only have the NW community to blame for the poor number of NW servers.
