this is just ridiculous. :mad: i realize that the devs wanted to focus mainly on a SP game, but who do they think they are? capicom? and i'm not just talking about the crappy, unstable in game browser they gave us. i'm talking about the things the game lacks:
1. decent maps a) maps to redundant b) too small for large games c) limited selection d) maps condone camping 2. ctf 3. no mic capability (UT2004 allows players to use mic to talk to other players. this is a big advantage when playing, mainly because you dont have to stop to type.) 4. some weapons not used on certain maps. 5. weapon balance in MP 6. good control and movement during MP. a lot of times i notice that players are like ripples in a pool of water, lacking consisitently and moving gawky. this is not due to lag (my ping is low) or a performance issue on my pc (single player runs fine). i've noticed other players complaining about this too. if you dont understand what i'm talking about, just stick to your sp game.
only upside i see in MP is the uselessness of jumping. this is a HUGE difference from UT2004 where everyone bunny hopes around and shoots randomly.
i'm hoping the devs plan to fix MP problems, but i have a feeling they wont since they made their claim to focus mainly on the SP aspect. if this is the case, i want my $$ back :deal: because i got this game for playing online. overall, when it comes to MP i think D3 is out and UT2004 is back in. :moon:
before everyone starts b1tching @ me, i'll say that i do enjoy the SP game but not enough to warrant a $50 price tag. even though i have no problem getting into a lowping MP game (supporting 4+ ppl with open slots) i almost always end up logging out to go back and play the SP version.

Just wait a short time and mods will fix the problem. Anyway, they have clearly stated this is not a multiplayer game.

The multiplayer levels are much more indepth than you might see right off the bat.
A few days into the multi-player i found many great tricks, moves, and styles of attacking. A camper in doom3 is not something that's going to accel against an experienced player.
Recommendation: Rocketlauncher|Chaingun combo ;)
There are also many nice tricks on TheEdge2, for rocket jumps. Altho they may seem very generic there is a little more depth than you might think. Just look a little harder and you might see the potential.. ;) but i'm not givin away any secrents.. cal season is coming up :)

Ultima2xcal season is coming up :)
cal season huh? what exactly is cal season?
i think campers do have it made in this game. :0wned: i got one thing to say to campers: put your soulja shit on and prepare to go to war with it!!
i feel that the devs really put out a SP game with a MP option, relying heavily on the consumers to expand the MP dimensions of D3. pretty lame if you ask me. i sure hope some of the fan base puts out some damn good MP mods and patches or else i think D3 MP is already dead and gone. '
Campers don't accel in doom III. Play any skilled player and it wont happen. I Guarentee you.
In a deatmatch, that "camper" might get less deaths.. but this game isn't scored on deaths it's scored on kills. And the one moving around running i sthe one that'll dominate the charts.
And in a 1v1, the one camping is going to be the predictable one that's going to get rocketsplashed to his death. It's hard to camp in a corner and escape a rocket flying towards your head.

why do you guys keep bashing the mp Doom 3 is meant to be a single player game the creators only added the mp in so you would still play the game after you have beaten it
:| just voicing their opinions. Even if it's a tac-on it needs to have some standard for quality.
I think multiplayer is great tho.
