Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars Beta Reset Planned

badman's Beta Blog has word on plans for an account reset in the Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars demo, saying they are looking to stress the backend infrastructure for account registration and their ability to roll back statistics:
The wipe is currently scheduled for this coming Wednesday (August 22, 2007), at which point you will no longer be able to play unless you re-create your account in the manner described above. The statistics are also going to be reset that day.

The other test we’re running is currently taking place on a much smaller scale and concerns the statistics roll-back and restoration functionality. In the final game, we’ll be able to use this to combat statistics exploits, padding, and other unwanted activity. To make sure that rolling back and restoring statistics on a large scale is as seamless and robust a process as it can be, 5000 beta accounts have been randomly selected for this test and their owners have already been notified. Essentially, we’re be rolling back the statistics for those accounts by several hours, followed by returning them to their original, pre-rollback state. We’re taking great care during this process, but since this is still a beta, there is a chance that the statistics may be corrupted during the test.

I don't know about that sphinx. I don't find BF2 to be graphically a joke at all, in fact I think it's quite good in that regard. I also remember it ran silky smooth on an AMD64 /w 7800gtx. QW is jerky, even after an hour+ of com_unlock fps/timingmethod/etc tweaking, on a C2D /w 8800gtx. I understand the technical prowess of the game, I just don't think it translates very well into a good looking game; especially not at the performance price.


As far as what I don't like, it's two things. 1) inconsistent feel due to laggy and jerky engine (nothing to do with my setup/ISP) and 2) horrible vehicles that only detract from gameplay IMO.

I'm not trying to toot my horn, but my dislike for the game has nothing to do with my unwillingness to learn or adapt. I've been very good at FPS games for a long time, and that hasn't changed a bit in QW. The feel/vehicles is that kills it for me.
