    SeiKei @ onscentral.com just posted this on their forums.

    I don't like how Ureal Warfare is turning out, the original ideas seemed to be a lot better.

    Just sounds like an upgraded Onslaught to me :eek:

    I'm sure Onslaught players will appreciate it, though.

    It better be closer to assult that ONS, else I will be pissed. ONS-UW better not equal CTF-BR. I want a new game type, not an added twist to something already shiping with the game.

    So... Now there's ONS and ONS+1? :con:

    At least the last part about UT sounds good. I know they've been saying it for awhile but I'm still kinda skeptical about them actually pulling it off.

    How f*cking lame. I knew Epic had to do something like this.

    I think we've known the difference between Onslaught and "Conquest" (UW as it has been recently renamed) since, well, the CGW article half a year ago. We know that UW is like a giant Onslaught match infused with Command and Conquer elements and Assault awesomeness, which is why I personally think that Epic is going to pull it off very successfully.

    Onslaught will be bigger though. Nobody likes 2-hour-long matches, which is what UW is starting to sound like.

    It's a 50/50 deal. Anyways, it can't be worse than 2k4's pos play, so it can only get better.

    I guess my name is 'nobody' then ... because I do like 2 hour long matches.

    Still ... until we see what UW really is it's useless to speculate as it will lead to dissappointment in the end.

    There's never going to be such a thing as 'new' gametypes, because everything has been done already.

    Suddenly not so enthused...

    Agreed on the UW thing, the old CON ideas sounded a lot better :tdown:

    CON at least sounded as if it could've been suitable for clan play, UW doesn't. I know a lot of people don't like clas etc, but clanplay is important for a lot of people and it keeps people playing longer over the lifetime of a game.

    Mailed Mark/Steve about this.

    Certainly sucks if it's true.

    Oh... crap.... they really did suggest a complete change for UW... I guess I should've read the original post.

    Any idea on how big this article is?

    ZOMG the nerd tactic squat.

    Having like 6 bots on your team saying they are attacking a node is very stupid.

    I don't see why the originally-proposed Warfare would take 2 hours per game. XMP featured a basic resource management and could be over in two minutes or forty, Assault matches also vary wildly depending on the level of map knowledge and spamming ability.

    I think Epic's line of reasoning here is that they're trying to streamline the elements into a more accessible and easily-comprehensible form, and I definitely agree with them on that, but the proposed changes are just no good. They need to focus on Assaultesque objective-based gameplay with the Onslaughty feel of a sci-fi war in my opinion, it's a winner.

    What was the old ideas about CON again?? I forgot what it was.


    I dont think you read the story properly, UW is just several ONS matches linked together so that things which happened in previous ones will persist and effect the following matches. The 'War' may last 2 hours, but each match will be the same as a much shorter ONS match. So there is really no difference in actual 'match' length of ONS and UW.

    Maybe the original concept of Conquest was too complex for the PS3.

    GG Epic.

    Sad because it's probably true. Despite what Epic say, they'll chose a safe option that'll definitly work on the PS3 over an option that might not make it to consoles. As far as I'm concerne, Epic is focusing equally on the PC and Consoles. Which is exactly what PC gamers don't want.
