    I think quite a few players are students, and therefore have exams coming up this month. I intend to play more when mine are over, in a few days.

    Full time job > INF

    When I do play though all I play is DTAS and EAS, even if I'm alone on the EAS server

    Since 99% of the time, when I log in to play INF, no one is playing EAS (when I join an eas sever I play alone against bots for 30 minutes and get bored) and since TDM is not where my interests in INF are (e.g. teamwork), I pretty much moved on. If serious developement was going on for INF, I would probably be more around, but now even the future of the next generation of INF is uncertain.

    Same here, if I'm not at work (or am at work and bored) I hop onto whatever server is populated and try to encourage a mass migration to DTAS or EAS (if needed).

    I was waiting alone in a server at Monday and Tuesday, around 21.00 gmt. Nobody appeared. Yesterday, i got to attract 3 players more, and we played 2 vs 2 in foxhunt, but i suspect they entered because Inf germany was full. :\ :/

    I recently updated my computer and re-installed windows...and just haven't had time to install inf yet.
    But when I eventually get back online with inf, I'll join any dtas or eas game. You won't see me on tdm unless I'm very very drunk..

    I'm mainly playing clan wars only lately. I had my exams and from now of on I plan on doing lot's of reviews for darkzero so I still won't be around that often. Still I like the clan wars most of the times, my main issue with INF is that most active players left aren't the people I want to play with.

    Well, I could just quote Geo. No one plays DTAS or EAS anymore, and I am fed up with TDM and specially fed up with all the damn talking about haxxors these days and ppl complaining about nearly every kill. It took away the fun in INF, I moved on. Will be back later maybe.

    That's pretty much my feeling. When I decided to stop taking care of the ppl who I knew where doing queer things, I realised how much everyone used cheating as an argument for dying. And when I finally decided to move on, I was shocked to see that other, less realistic games could actually have objectives (see like having a point... one other than killing people for killing people) and have a gameplay well above INF's current gameplay regarding realism.... Which is very sad.

    With all the efforts made to implement realism in weapon handling and movements... all ruined IMO. Most EAS players moved on because all this technical realism is lost and hidden under the un-realism of the gameplay/gamemode.

    Of coures, you'll always have some BS in other games... but lately, it was easier for me to find more realistic games elsewhere. Again, after all these efforts by sentry studios, it's pretty sad. I think it might be important to ask ourself how that happened... how could a game move away so far from its original vision? Maybe its the community, maybe it's the game... I do not know. But it should be important to think about those questions and especially important to learn from those question for future projects. What went wrong, when, why and how... (here I assume that something went wrong, from my point of view of course, because something that kept my interest since 1999 suddenly doesn't seem to interest me at all anymore somehow... I mean, that's odd).


    edit: changed some stuff, not to be too much miss-interpreted ;)

    For me its the community, no doubt. I was playing this game because it was fun to be around with all the ppl, the chatting and having a good match was very important for me. Now every match at least one guy complains about whoreguns or cheater or lag or whatever.

    The game may not be perfect, but I ttill think this is the best INF version I played. I know I CAN have fun playing with ppl, but these seem to be gone.

    I'll have to agree, compared to the BS going on in 2.85, 2.85.3, 2.85.5 and 2.86 I think 2.9 is a very good release. My only complaint is that it was too EAS orriented, with no new maps coming out it became boring pretty quickly (and the random stuff in maps wasn't used too often I think). I tried specialist a few times but the fact that the specialist has a random pistol and also is chosen randomly put me off.

    In any case what I mean is although 2.9 has it's flaws it is probably the best INF version by far, like Lich said (keeping in mind I didn't play a version pre-2.85). It's the community that annoys me. It's not so much how they whine because I like to whine too, but it's more that they are doing everything they can to get as many kills as possible instead of trying new things. Last time I played on a 6 vs 6 server (TDM) I couldn't tell the difference in playing style. Everybody was playing the exact same way.

    And my issue with DTAS is again the community. People aren't going for the cap, or for defense. They threat it as TDM where one of the 2 sides has a disadvantage because they can't continue with just 1 man left.
    I must repeat, it might just be me, but how the hell can you have fun doing the same thing over and over and over again?

    Still things aren't that bad. I once played Day of Defeat, I was defending some AA gun against the enemy team. And so I went prone near a wall and bush so my camo would work and only shot the people that tried to take out the AA gun. It's hard to explain exactly what I was doing but in any case the first guy I shot got mad at me and called me a whore. He used the argument "How the hell could I know you are lieing down there?" in Dutch. Man I hate Dutch players.
    Also they claimed strafing and firing is where skill is at instead of tactical play. Which I thought was funny, since DOD uses conefire so that 'skill' is actually 'luck' the way I see it.

    Well why not organize a DTAS night, much like the "INF Team plays INF" night?

    Point 1: Its summer, people play less and enjoy the weather.

    Point 2: Many play DTAS quite often in DTASAL War/Train. If that fills your weekly schedule you won't play much public (or maybe TDM for variety).
    Some might need a break as well. (Same what happend to public EAS during/after ILCR)

    Point 3: Seeing the fact that the release of INF for HL2 isn't going to happen {soon} many people lost interest.

    I 100% agree that the situation is kind of sad... still I have no clue how to help it.

    Actually the most posts "???" I see in game, is from one of your clanmates - although it might not be meant as an accusation it can easily come off as such.

    It's funny to see vets complain that too many people are complaining :rolleyes: . Who exactly are those people complaining ? Certainly not noobs, they have disappeared a long time ago. Who does that leave us with ? Us. Yep, those complaining are the very ones that are still playing Inf, this means us. So instead of complaining about people complaining, why can't we realise Inf can still be a fun game when people actually try to enjoy it, instead of examining every little flaw it might have.
    So to sum up :

    I second that very much.

    ps : geo, i am very very sorry to hear that you've moved on. Does that mean there's no chance at all that we ever see an new version of RT ?
