    What does that do to attract new customers?

    1. Shows that they care.
    2. Shows people that the game has a future.
    3. Shows those who have heard that the game is buggy that things are getting fixed.

    It's not so much about getting new customers, the game has already sold over a million copies many people have just put the game aside because of various reasons, many of which are being fixed in patches.

    I did when it was in its prime. But I'm not going to lie to my friends. UT3 is a good game, but nobody is playing it. Plus its not my job to advertise the game, its Epic's.

    A lot of people buy games by word of mouth, not ads on a web site.

    Obviously not a linux user then.
    Epic has done their job if you have bought it in the first place but like Brizz has said word of mouth helps aswell and while you state that its a good game you place a black mark on it due to noone playing ... I play it and im sure if you told some of your friends and they found they liked it then you would have someone to play with ... Because noone is playing online is not a fault of epic, nor is it the fault of the community as a whole its the individual choice of the gamers themselves.

    Lets face it we have grown up since ut99, we now have jobs and kids of our own, it isnt just because some parts of the game dont meet your standards or are buggy, its a combination of things that keeps players from jumping online; some of us are busy living out lives for the sake of a new family, others may have moved on from playing games to other hobbies like shoe making and painting stones.

    Its not like Epic can force people to play their games and I was actually impressed with the amount of advertising it did get prior to its release.

    If you look att he collectors edition box its states on it that its from the makers of Gears OIf War ... while GOW being a huge console hit that alone is enough for alot of gamers to buy UT3 - even it is for the console.

    BLAH BLAH BLAH IM A DIRTY TRAMP!

    What advertising? I didn't see any. They showed a trailer on some convention but that's not advertising imo.

    I had my girlfriend over last night - she wanted to play a game. Normally she'd play something like Abe's Odyssey; but it was "No, I want to play Unreal Tournament".

    Sure why not.

    Anyway, we played DM for a good couple of hours and ran through all the maps. I then moved her on to VCTF for a bit.

    "That's really good actually, how much is it at the moment? I might have to get it."

    "I don't think your computer can run it."

    "Oh. Yeah. :("
    .

    So anyway, I slipped her a copy of UT2004 into her bag when she wasn't looking.

    Never mind.

    GameVideos (ugh) was getting so damn annoying with the UT3 trailer being shown always before a video.

    Yes, there has been advertising in various websites, but guess when... just before and after the first release of the PS3 version.

    I know this may sound a little weird to everyone..
    But if you've bought the collector's edition like I have. On the DVD,
    Epic say the encourage High quality modding and mapping. And If you
    look at how good UnrealEd has done over the last few years, it has
    definitly broken the crap out of Hammer and possibly even Radiant.
    Guys, singleplayer is ok, multiplayer may not be all the good, and if
    you hate the menu, why not just go about forming a team and bringing
    truly what you believe is the best UT3 game?

    That's why modding started didn't it?

    All the best.
    Scott.

    possibly Radiant? Have you tried mapping for CoD 4? It's a farce. I feel sorry for the people who worked on it.

    I've attempted mapping for Hammer, radiant, and UnrealEd over the last three years.
