As you may know, yesterday I called and complained about them advertising a hostage and bomb mode on the website, under the features section. I wanted to know if we should expect these features as DLC...

Well, today, I checked the website again. The modes have been removed...

Old Description

"X-Box Live! enabled: join tense multi-player battles online, up to 16 players on tricky maps. Many multi-player modes available (cooperative, survival, team survival, hostage rescue, bomb.) Come and prove you are a man of valour!"

New Description

"X-Box Live! enabled: join tense multi-player battles online, up to 16 players on tricky maps. Many multi-player modes available (cooperative, survival, team survival.) Come and prove you are a man of valor!"

I would suggest everyone call their tech support line, and let them know you expected Hostage and Bomb modes because of the website, and demand a refund or something.

Maybe that will prompt them to release it as DLC.

(919) 460-9778 for US Support. Tell them you want the Hostage and Bomb modes they advertised.

Don't know which countries site your going to but it's still the same last time I checked, which was just now...

I want these gametypes too.. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif or any adversarial. Not even having Team Sharpshooter(respawns) means we couldn't even play President(if you know that custom game from GR on XBLive).Stranger still is that they dont mention Sharpshooter.

Never liked playing hostage or bomb modes much myself. Team survival is where it's at.

I don't know how much mileage you're going to get by complaining to a tech-support line about the game-modes. They don't make the games y'know. They just answer the same 100 questions about a zillion times. Half the time tech support guys are reading canned lines from a script anyway.

Welcome to Redstorm games dude! They specialize in DM, DM, and DM. They can't figure out how the hell to make any other mode of play.

but GR/IT the other Redstorm XboX title I know of has
DOMINATION
SIEGE
HAMBURGER HILL and
SEARCH & RESCUE

All adversarial objective MP gametypes

I rarely play LMS simply because I dont enjoy it as much as objective based games and I never play SOLO so Sharpshooter won't appeal to me.

I guess I wont be enjoying RS3 adversarial on XBLive as much as I'd hoped, unless things change.. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Yeah, don't feel bad, we were all suckered. Heh.


I purchased GR for the PC and it took me all of about 5 minutes to loathe the multiplayer component. It was sooooooooooooo much fun having to wait and wait and wait for the exact start of a new round. LOL!


Redstorm is going to get taken to the woodshed by Counter-Strike. While RS3 has MUCH better graphics and interaction in the singleplayer portion, Counter-Strike is just soooo much better suited for multiplayer.


Redstorm, pay attention, do these things if you want to have your products online attention:

1) No one wants to wait and wait and wait for a new round to start before they can join in.

2) OBJECTIVE-BASED MULTIPLAYER! OBJECTIVE-BASED MULTIPLAYER! OBJECTIVE-BASED MULTIPLAYER! Playing DM is fun for 5 minutes and then it's stale. The games that generate the bulk of online traffic are objective-based: BF1942, Counter-Strike, etc. Do research!



Geez! Isn't it sad to do this much work on a game and fumble the ball on such easily incorporated functionality??????!!!!

^^^^^
I agree. (just my opinion though)

I just cant understand why they dont have any.. I really hope Bergey is right and that it will be on DLContent.
maybe most people dont care and its just a few of us that miss these gametypes.. They should host a poll on the RS3 site!!

I was hopeful it was going to be added in DL content until someone saw that those modes of play have even been removed from the official site.

Let's face it, it's not coming.


Conduct a poll?????? What the hell for?! Can't someone at Redstorm analyze online game traffic and see that it's the objective-based mp modes that capture the vast bulk of the traffic?

I am sure they will have a lot more than you think on DLC including hostage rescue, bomb defusal, and probably team sharpshooter. as well as new skins, maps and possibly guns. an HK XM-29 would be sweet!

Thanks for all the replies!

For the guy who asked why I called tech support,

Well, they don't really offer a line to the developers home on this website, and "product registration" didn't really seem to fit the bill. Tech support seemed to be the best option at the time.

I still don't see an option for "customer support" on the website.

For the guy wondering which country I was using, I said I called the US Support line, so it would only make sense that I was from the US and using that website version.



I really hope they offer these things as DLC, but they aren't going to do it just for the fun of it. We need to voice our opinions, and let them know, not only that we want, but we DEMAND these modes.

It put a huge damper on things when I noticed they had removed the game modes.

Too bad devs don't read these forums, or show any signs they give a damn what the consumers think.

SundaysBest, I agree with you 100% about DEMANDING that it get put in. Wishing and hoping that it gets in is not going to get it done. Everyone that wants it needs to be vocal about it in these forums!


I'm already wondering how it's affected sales. I'm shocked at how little traffic this forum is seeing. It's like no one purchased the game or cares!

Even without the objective-based modes, I would have thought forum traffic would be 10 times what it is.

Wow!

We're not getting any game types as DLC. So you might as well throw those hopes and dreams out the window right now.

How do you know that? (I'm curious about your source)


If I thought that was true, I'd put the damn game on eBay **right now**.


Without objective-based mp modes, the traffic will end up being as pitiful as Ghost Recon was.

I don't have a source. Heh.

I just know we aren't getting any of those game types you all mentioned. I want them just as much as you guys, but they just aren't going to happen.

Yhee, I'm gonna miss playing president, indeed. But I'm sure some clear guys can come up with somthing familure soon. But i totaly agree, Redstorm should have included all those gamemodes that was in Raven Shield.

As soon as I get my copy of the game I'm gonna' call the support and whine for about 30 minutes http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You know I was putting all of my faith in Bergey up there and you had to go and ruin it now did you Zero.

I as the rest of you obviously would have actually loved to see more multiplayer options (as in gametypes). By nature I have always been more of a DM player, but as of lately I have been seeking purpose in my gaming. So far objective multiplayer gametypes have given me that. With RS3 I find myself playing more Terrorist Hunt or Mission on Live than Survival, TS or Sharpshooter because the other two give me a mission or purpose and it seems more enjoyable to me. Although I would like to see a Team Sharpshooter, that way for those days you feel like Teams with respawns you can have them. I was also upset it did not include this.

ah well...i dont know what to say fellas

i guess i just expected this...i played R6 and Rogue Spear for about 2 years total...and it was DM only

i just expected it from this game

counterstrike to me looks bad...i played the pc version, and from the looks of the Xbox version, they really SPED IT UP...and i just dont like my FPS's like Wolf and SOF on the xbox...I look for a lil Tactical Strategy opposed to jumping in circles around your opponent to get a kill

i wish they had variety for everyone, i really do...but to be honest, i am completely happy with 1 gamemode
