i just got done playing D3 MP with approximately 8 ppl. during that time i have concluded that MP takes little to no skill at all. ( for those who will comment, i have played a game with as little as 2ppl and as big as 20). if ppl are not camping in dark corners, they are dashing around while shooting aimlessly in all directions. how can that take skill? i've played on a lot of different servers (when the unstable server browser does not report the game as being full or password protected) and i have yet to see anyone skillfully eliminate someone or a team. sadly, i dont think this game was meant for adept players. instead, it was meant for players to experience the perspective of a first person shooter on crack without having to take crack. before i decided to post, i actually saw and killed a 'bunnyhoper.' i guess that technique only works in UT. lol

it's pathetic how bad d3's MP is. all i know is, i'm glad i checked out my friends copy before wasting my money on it. for all those who did buy it, you've been :pwned:

it was never about the multiplayer. I suggest you try the single player before you give up on it.

Doom 3's Multiplayer revives the old Quake 1, 2 and 3 bunny-hopping tactics.

It's quite fun to see, but really bothersome to do, and also to confront. I actually thought that the reloading system would balance things a bit, but it's nothing more than a "cool-down" period for players to "rest" before starting to jump like wackos again.

Most server hosts cant handle that but my computer can just no T1 connections here. I had a 30 way deathmatch at lan last night. It brings back the memories of quake 3 with urban terror mod. The same thing of "no skill" can be said about almost any multi game. Warcraft 3, UT2K4, Conkers Bad Fur Day, Quake series, RPGs, Painkiller. Doom3 is meant for solo anyways try playing that.

This belongs more in the Rant section. But yes, I believe that id Software included multiplayer in Doom 3 mainly to keep it very traditional. It is nothing special, but is more or less just included for the mere sake of it. I do consider it enjoyable in it's own way though.

CHAKAit was never about the multiplayer. I suggest you try the single player before you give up on it.

i'm afraid i have tried the SP and i'm not that impressed with it either. i've read the debates about how its a clone of d1, takes off from where d1 left off, or even dated back before d1. i find the game very redundant; so repetiteve that it's not even funny. like my friend said, "like all id games, d3 was 6 lvls too long." hell, you can only take entering a dark room, whereupon grabbing a medkit spawns several of the same monsters so many times. it's gotten to the point where i have to force myself to play D3, SP or MP. games shouldnt be like that. i find myself playing it only when i'm bored (never interested in the game), usually between studying sessions. i'm looking forward to star wars battlefronts release next month. i know it will blow d3 MP out of the water. it will be all that d3 could never be. i'm willing to bet it will have a much better story line.

btw, thx magic for moving the post where it should be. lol

Erm, SWB is based on Battlefield, the story was a quick briefing, so i doubt it. Also D3 and SWB are completly differant so.. yes it will be everything D3 never was.:uhm:
