Lmao, nobody is going to play merc. I knew that would happen. There are going to be soooo many arguments on who's turn it is to be merc.

This is what you get with "New" and "revolutionary" things,especially if its never been done.It'll get by alright though.

The only reason for me to choose Merc, is because of the COOLEST vision modes ever made http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I chose Spy.

I think this is gonna be alright when they see how difficult it is to play spy they will scream to be a mercenaries! Merceneries can go where they like, spies are always in danger. By the way, true stealth-freaks are very rare, nearly everybody is a FPS-rambo, online-gamers are nearly always rambo's! Those guys try spy for a few days and decide they are not the stealth-kind of guy. Me for myself, im a stealth freak in CS or Sof2 or CoD im always a sniper, always a lone-wolf,and i am jolly good at it(which is a pity for my opponents http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/34.gif).

I don't think there will be a problem with people playing mercs. I'll probrably be playing that the most. I specialize in tactical defenses. I want see you try to get past me, none the less come up behind me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm gunnu play as a spys and mercs equally so as not to get bored with one or the other. But please, quite wasting bandwidth, check the other polls on this please...


03-08-2004, 04:40 PM
i'll play both...takin' turns with the buddies i'll be playing with.

both the spy and mercs are gonna be cool...mercs have the gun and can BASH the spies.

More spies than Mercaneries... Damn it.

That means one of us if going to have to be bad guy while the rest of you have fun being sneaky and gloat about it v_v

I shall perform my seaking duties to the fullest. But I will make you pee your pants with my sneaking... when it comes time

03-08-2004, 05:30 PM
Both of them seem well thought out, so I think it will be easy for me to play both. Though I do have a slightly better liking for the spies.

03-09-2004, 12:55 AM
People just think, if you wannabe a good spy then you will have to play mercenerie a lot! Then you know how a mercenerie thinks. If this idea hasn't come up in your thoughts yet, then your not gonnabe a good spy. A ninja's most powerfull weapon are his brains.

I'd like to be a spy, but I'll probably end up being a merc simply because everyone else will want to be a spy.

Anybody here play the Thievery mod for UT? EVERYONE wanted to be a thief, and nobody wanted to be a guard. I suspect the same will hold true here, so if nothing else, I can dedicate my online existance to making spies' lives as miserable as possible, hopefully convincing them to throw in the towel so that I can go spy. I almost always throw in with the underdog.

03-09-2004, 02:28 PM
i would be a spy. they got better oves and kinda better guns, but the mercs vision is way better.

03-09-2004, 02:34 PM
Normally I'd go spy, but after having seen some of the fascinating tools at the mercs' disposal I'll probably do some merc duty as well. That motion tracking vision looks fantastic...plus who would want to miss out on leaving some wall mine love around the map?

03-09-2004, 03:05 PM
I doubted the mercs, but they look pretty damn sweet now. I saw a video today on IGN, mercs can set "spy traps" or something like that. Not sure whether its a trip wire or a bomb, but it looks cool. I'll be a spy though, cuz the teamwork in that looks better than anything a merc can do.

I told myself that i would always play as a spy and nothing else. I think that people will find out that spie will be harder(maybe) to play with. So we may have a shortage of spies soon.

03-10-2004, 02:27 AM
I think your right. Let's hope so!

I've seen stupid mistakes that kill a spy, and i've seen all out firefights that quick thinking and a smart hand saves a spy.

Be what you want. Both I'm sure are very even -- this will be recognized as soon as we all have a chance to play it.

I'll be a spy FIRST, but play both for sure.

03-10-2004, 04:17 AM
I think the balance is so perfect, that I wont mind being merc...
I gonna play spy in single, merc is the only possibility to ever face a spy, gonna be cool...

03-10-2004, 06:01 AM
well, looks like i'm one of the 20% that wants to play as merc. oh well, more spies to gun down for me!

If Con is the opposite of Pro, does that make Congress the opposite of Progress?

03-11-2004, 09:43 PM
It depends which one I like when I play the game

03-11-2004, 09:46 PM
Can you plz stop wasting bandwidth with these polls?!

03-11-2004, 09:58 PM
I'm thinking spy for the first week or two to learn the ins and outs of the levels and then merc all the way!

03-11-2004, 10:08 PM
Most definately both! I'm gonna play whatever the room wants me to be...both are completely different and one is not better than the other. Spy I have to be methodical and you get that power trip of seeing them and them not seeing you...but Mercenary will be so sweet with the challenge of finding them. that rush of not being able to be seen is the same rush i'll feel knowing that sneaky punk is in the room with me and getting that tingling feeling of nervousness. Both are fantastic...its gonna be beutiful, can't wait!

03-12-2004, 01:07 PM
i Will definetly choose spy most of the time, the problem in most online games is that you have 3 kinda of people

1- the kinda people who play the game 24/7 life is nothing without this game killing and owning is what ur about and nothin else to it, and you know you can.

2-the kinda people who just play for fun when they're bored they play with their friends or try to make new friends, these people are usually pretty good at the game but can still get the crap beat outta them by poeple number 1

3-you just plain suck you dont know what the hell is going on you just sit and shoot hoping that one of your unlucky shots wont get their attention and they dont pump you full of lead you sit and cry in the fetal positiion when they do and wyne about it.

also poeple that play R6 and kick *** at it are probably gonna own as merc

and have yall noticed the two comic book cover thingys is that for you to make a comic book or are they making one http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

03-12-2004, 04:52 PM
Anybody who's ever played an FPS will pick up the merc w/o much trouble. I think I like the merc a bit more, though. There's an element of strategy in picking out patrol routes, choke points, and areas in which to deploy your equipment.

Plus, don't forget that mercs can be sneaky too. Don't just charge in. Turn out the lights, take it slow, and yon spy's first inkling of your presence will be a rifle butt in the back of the head whilst he fiddles with the objective. The environment favours the mercs as much as it does the spies.

03-12-2004, 05:25 PM
dang, now the percentage of mercs has dropped to 18%...
too many people want to play as spies. why is that?! where are all the FPS players?! i see the furture where i'm laughing at my merc teammate because he's cusing because he did not get to be a spy.

I am going to play as spy the whole time. I am more of a stealth person.

03-12-2004, 06:18 PM
you spelled mercenary wrong,just pointing it out, but by the way, this game is going to surpass all teamgames with this teamwork

03-13-2004, 04:29 AM
Merc is just an abbreviation of mercenary. Pronounced "merk," with a hard C.

Forums, and the internet is general, is not a great place to be if you criticize peoples' spelling. It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to get the point across.

03-13-2004, 09:50 AM
I like the idea of spy, unfortunately most ppl seem 2. There is going 2 be a huge problem if every1 is spy scince there wont be enough mercs to fight'em.

03-13-2004, 04:23 PM
i found it interesting being a mercenerie.you can have better vision modes and better weapons. (THINK ABAUT BOOBY TRAPS..)
playing like mercenerie is for those who lik also playing counter-strik,halo,call of duty ...

03-13-2004, 04:35 PM
i agree ill play with both but i'll try to get good at spy!

i want to be a spy mostly. i'm not very good at fps, but i was pretty good at splinter cell, so hopefully i'll do well.


Sam:"what about soth?"
Lambert:"what about him?"
Sam:"can i kill him?"
Sam:"not even a little?"

03-13-2004, 04:58 PM
I'm looking forward to both!

Spy - Creeping around with my friend, acrobatically infiltrating the level. Watching the Mercenaries patrol below me and padding about silently.

Mercenary - Back to the wall suspense and teamwork with your partner. Swinging my flashlight into all the corners looking for tell tale glimpses, a shifting shadow a unusual noise.

Both of the teams offer so much in terms of cool factor and mood I'm just generally excited about it all!

This is my signature. I am Hades.

03-13-2004, 05:40 PM
Everyone seems that it is going to be hard for the Mercs because of so many spies but they forget that the game is 2 vs. 2 so the teams will be small anyways and it will be harder for the spies to play becuase all the servers will be full of spies.

the mercs getting outnumbered is not a problem


03-13-2004, 05:41 PM
Oh yeah I will play as both, whichever one I feel like or all the players don't want to be


03-14-2004, 01:37 AM
Maybe will computer choose on wich side will you be(if there will be so many spies)!
