I like to play FPSes, not vehicle based shooters.
Go play ANY of the BF2 maps on a full 64 player server (or smaller versions of those maps with lower player numbers) and you will have an intensity of gameplay that goes FAR beyond what quake 3 can deliver.
I wish NovaLogic would release an updated version of Joint Ops.
As for WW2 Tribes? That might actually be interesting. Nazis with jetpacks and Panzerschrek rocket launchers ftw.
I have to agree, tribes 1 and 2 still rule the roost. the only "problem" was that the sci fi settings was too ambitious for its time and that could/did turn off some users.
Why was my post removed?
Is it because I was not on topic and attempting to highjack the thread?

Yes, being able to kill infantry without any recourse by them from miles away is why Battlefield is so great.
