Some of them are. Just because they fit 16 players in them, it doesn't mean its fun. Oh, traditional deathmatch players can still be satisfied. But the real 'game' of AVP suffers. Part of the added fun of the AVP games is the hunt. Aliens crawl around in the dark quietly trying to sneak up on humans and Predators, Predators stick to high ground and track humans, and humans try and stay alive. But when the Predator has 10 Aliens jumping at his back, he has to decloak and reveal his position, and it just becomes a bog-standard deathmatch. Fun as a deathmatch is, AVP can be much more than that. Only, it works best with 8 players. 4 players is too few. 10/12 players is pushing it a little. 16 players is too much. I suppose if you download a much larger map than the stock maps, it could work as the players would be spread more thinly. But if you do that, you probably won't get more than 8 players joining anyway.

1 mbit is enough for 16 and i got 2 so thats np. But mr.matt you do have a point. It is much funnier to sneak and kill than a complete chaos.

Mr. Matt.. trad. deathmatch players can still be satisfied. But the real 'game' of AVP suffers. Part of the added fun of the AVP games is the hunt. Aliens crawl around .., Predators stick to high ground and track humans,.. humans try and stay alive.. when Predator has 10 Aliens jumping at his back, he has to decloak [de-cloak/uncloak?] and reveal his position, .. just becomes .. bog-standard deathmatch .. AVP can be much more than that. .. It works best with 8 players, 4 players is too few, 10/12 players is pushing it a little; 16 players is too much... if you download a much larger map than the stock maps, it could work .. if you do that, you probably won't get more than 8 players joining anyway.

I see. You haven't given it much thought then? :Puzzled:

:-D

I've played the game on and off since it was released. I've just built up a personal preference over the years.

Mr.Matt I have really thought about what you said and i really think is alot funnier to be sitting in the roof and jump down onto a marine and take his head for lunch. So maybe you can help me decide which maps to use and how manye players and other settings ;)
