Thread: Simple gamemode proposition | Forums

    Hi everybody.

    First of all, I want to write that is some time now that I dont play RvS, so maybe there is already some of this going on, so please excuse me if this has already been discussed.

    I'm pretty new to the forum but I'm not new to the series so I've finally decided to ask for a new gamemode option which I think is really needed:

    Respawn. Please read further.

    For what I remember, no Rainbow game has ever supported respawn, with the consequence that every match is basically an AVERAGE 20% playtime 80% waiting (the ratio goes all the way to the opposite for experienced players, but on average they are FAR less than inexperienced, or simply not good, ones) and, I dont know you but, for me, waiting SUCKS, and sucks bigtime.

    So I wanted to ask the developers to create a simple gamemode. Deathmatch W Respawn (or Team DM W Respawn), as in almost every other multiplayer FPS out. Many of you would be contrary since RvS is NOT like the other FPS, for its realistic nature and more 'tactical' pace, but I'm not asking to replace the natural round-based gamemode.

    I'm simply asking for a respawn option to the server,which will allow for more shootin' and less waitin'.

    I have come with this proposition not because I die often or I suck, but for my latency is pretty bad in all servers when I play on the Internet, and hence having a good time online is really hard.

    So, since I believe that I'm not the only one with this desire or with the same latency problems, I'd like to be able to find at least a server where, even if my lag sucks or even if I suck, I'm not forced to wait 5 minutes to be able to shoot again.

    PS
    If you dont agree with what I write, try to understand that in this game I prefer shooting than killing, and when you cant even shoot a bullet in five minutes... it REALLY sucks.

    PPSS
    I understand that respawn mode would probably require different maps for Team deathmatch, but after all, the possibility to have team deathmatch with respawn is part of the discussion.

    Thanks everybody for your patience.

    I can understand why you would want that,
    but RvS is a team game. The problems I have always found with game s that have respawn is Spawn campers..msot of these maps are not that big, a 4 minute time is all that is needed in a deathmatch game any ways . .
    may I make a couple or just one or two suggestion .
    find a server you like and get to know those that go there often .. after a while you can work as a team with out any words spoken . . another way may be join a clan . . not all clans are based on rank structure .. or are in to leagues/ladders .. some are just formed so the same players play together all the time.
    well good luck and have
    some fun too [img]/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif[/img]

    Hmmm.

    I obviously still believe that this game needs respawn, since deathmatch (not TEAM deathmatch) is like any other deathmatch, with the only exception that here you die and have to wait... forever... or you have to win the round.

    Its ok for me to let team deatchmatch as it is, but deathmatch alone is not realistic nor whatever else, its simply people fragging themselves, and since here you dont have medikits and a bullet is often enough to incapacitate you... its even worse when you get fragged.

    Respawn mode could be a simple modification in my opinion.

    Respawn should be an option in this game and I will tell you why.

    IT IS A GAME.

    I know we have the hardcore realism fans who don't want to hear that... But the fact is just what you said.

    If it was an option, those who just want to have fun and play more than sit around and wait could have that option for for those that want a more serious tactical game (if that is possible with the way this game currently is) could stick to round based servers.

    In addition, people don't realize that not everybody is in high school or college and that many of us work full time jobs, have families and other responsibilties and when we do get a chance to play online, it is for a very limited amount -- maybe like an hour, an hour and a half -- So we wold much rather spend our time PLAYING the game than waiting around until the round ends.

    In addition, respawn also helps experienced players in that they can practice their skills even more since they are the ones that will most likely still be alive more often than dead which isn't a problem for them. It also helps less experienced players who are just learning the game or have no intentions of being in a clan or other competitive play and just want to PLAY THE GAME.

    Looks at his copy of Global Ops.....

    Could have been the best FPS ever. Respawns, serious objective-based gameplay, voting system for maps, boots, etc., had to buy your weapons...

    If it only had the recon-blocker - that would have perfected it.

    Just a few....more...patches...

    (weeps)

    I'd rather see some type of mini-game that bored players can play after they die while waiting for the next round.

    Maybe something like a R6 pinball game, or some type of carnival practice shooter where they give you a bb gun and you get to shoot moving wooden ducks while an obese, un-groomed carny heckles you!

    Sorry, but I just can't support respawns. Maybe you'll see them in GR 2, but it ain't likely to happen here.

    It's really not my idea... It's something that is being implemented into a couple of Star Wars games (KOTOR and Galaxies). Apparently it's going to take a really long time to travel in between various worlds on spaceships so they're putting in mini-games.
