What good is new eye candy when they don't do anything about the chaos which has become in the game? Unfortunately, alot of arrogant and selfish eastern european kids have ruined this superb game ...

I want you Steam fans telling me why the games various community flourished in good ol' days but not now? Then it came lots of new mods, maps, games modes etc, just because game developers allowed it. Now it's really not much of that.

Perhaps that is a good thing. When this kind of ridiculousness dies, and puts the people out of work who instigated and propagated it, a new version will arise out of the ashes and taking gaming in a different direction.

How do you know when a game is truly "dead"? Is it when an online game goes below n players or is it when the little group hardcore players have left and no one is there?

I know from own experience that games who have been administered and been housed on a private home server live longer because there is a greater proportion hardcore players who truly live for the game. Two good examples are Enemy Territory and Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Enemy Territory was released May 29, 2003, and Return to Castle Wolfenstin November 19, 2001, both games are still alive and get new players who play and want to learn to make their own maps and mods.

This is whay it's so important a game isn't a F2P or is hosted on a dedikeread server, it must be allowed to live it's own life and not a company decides when it's time to shut down the game.

Now that people are aware of it and they can try to cash in by looking like "good guys" they're suing. Pfeh.
Of course it is and this smells fish long way.

Guess they are terrified that public opinion will force a law decision that it will completely forbidden to collect data about and from users. It would crash whole their business idea.

There are some things with F2P that I find hard to accept:

1) It gets darn expensive in the long run to play F2P. Why? Well, too often, these games have a restriction of any kind, so if you don't pay, you can't take advantage of everything. This makes the game (for me) loses it's charm and magic.

2) Because they want to maximize their profit in the F2P-genre doesn't allows players to be creative at all, in other words you may not have access to the development tools so you can make and share your own maps, mods etc. I personally think such is fun so why shouldn't I be able to get the opportunity to bring something back to the game and cummunity?

3) With F2P, it often becomes a stress or pressure to always get to the next level - it's one of the ideas in this game genre. They want to keep the player fully occupied so he/she doesn't have time for other. When do they think that you should have fun and enjoy the game? Good question, isn't it ...?

- - -

In the past game developers had a passion for making games, now it's just money that determines what storyline a game will contain. In good ol' days it was more like 'an odd idea' was better. Now doesn't the game studios dare to take that 'extra' step because they're so afraid of losing money and ofc we can thank the big dragons like EA, Id etc for this. They choose mainstream because they know that works.

Bah! I may be old school, but the games were more fun before in good ol' days...

Over and out!

It's the way to do it! Hide everything unpleasant and then you are able to deny it and then blame it on "sequester-induced budget cuts". To funny ... Rolleyes

F2P is a plague that must be exterminated!

All games I tried that had F2P has stressed the player in some strange reward system that the player still never been able to use to the fullest unless the player paid an fee. All this do is to include a source of annoyance, and this ruining the joy of playing. Uneasy

I Played RtCW and WET for a good 10 years. They were amazing multiplayer games. It's just unfortunate that the community for these games died, I would love to pick up and play them again.

For me it would be enough with a graphically enhanced/updated version of RtCW. Everything else should be left as it is - rest is PERFECT as it is! Especially MP.

I can't tell you how much I miss to make maps for that game. Oh good ol days! Thanks

Now maybe they can take out a new course and make sure to give us joy of gaming back?

Give power back to the community!
Let us be able to map, mod and host our own servers. In the old days we had the power to set our own rules and if there appeared someone shady character, who cheated, he/she was instant banned.

It used to be laugh and jokes on the servers. Now it's just a damn chaos and kids screaming "noob" to the right and left.

Please id Software, give us the joy of gaming back!

No mod or map editor no buy, fuck em!!

I agree! I don't like this trend with no possibility to mod a game or make your own maps. They are so damned greedy and they only see an opportunity to make DLC's that they can charge for, often are these DLC's completely unimaginative or dull...

I also hate that I can't set my own game server and be moderator over it, as I could 10 years ago. But once again they want have full control on their "dedicated" servers, with the vague reason that they want to be able to catch cheaters (which they rarely do but we did...)

Damn, give the community the opportunity to be a little creative and help the games forward!

Many of the accounts are anything but active players... Many have only 1-2 games played, spam accounts for trolls, spam accounts that offer fake gold coins. So the thing with 60M accounts is pure BS!

This is still not Wolfenstein for me: It looks cool, but I still think it should have anything other than Wolfenstein in the title. Sorry!
