I'm just wondering.. What's wrong with XD settings? Sometimes when I read the forums I read denigrating remarks about XD? When I started playing SOF a year ago I only played on XD servers (RocMod Noble) so I didn't know any better.

I like it.. it's fast paced, a lot of action going on and so on. And with me, a lot of other players like XD. If I look at the traffic of other servers there is only one server gets more traffic then ours, thats the Ninja server... they have RD if i'm not mistaking.

So.. please let me know what's wrong with XD.. :naughty:

nothin wrong with that.. I think the issue here is older sof players (vets) who's played the game since released where no xd or rd existed, tend to think it's a newbie damage. as it's somewhat 2 different games. as you said, xd/rd is more fast paced and less aiming especially if no recoil, where nd is all aiming and strategic I for one prefer nd. it's just my kind of game. and by that Im not saying im better than anybody, but I would just have a hard time getting use to xd, vice versa for an xd player..

nothing wrong with that.. and obviously xd/rd has gained more and more popularity the past few years, and basically has taken over the game, which causes more nd players to leave and develope some kind of hate for the 'new generation'..

makes sense?

I played xd a few times. There is no skill to it. Find a place to sit out , one shot one kill, move when someone finds you. There is nothing else to it to be honest. You play xd for a while and you can't play any other damage mod after a while. You expect something to happen, and it doesn't. And really ... On certain boards, it is just cheesy. a three man mad rush to keep the other team pinned into their spawns. Yes i have played on Noble's servers too, Xd is for flat out death and killing. No strategy to it what so ever.

very well said. ND is the game I fell in love with in 2002, and still am. RD and XD are the ones ruining my loved one. clear as vodka.

With the right settings XD can be cool, like instagib on q3 or ef. I really enjoyed that a lot, but without modifying weapon speeds XD sux. Spraying=winning.

I <3 ND, it's soo sad seeing such a lot of rd and xd servers now :(

well as i have stated before. What is Nd or RD but an opinion on damage. Xd there is no opinion. It is spray and pray in it's purest form. Nd? I like it, Rd i like better. Nd = too much dancing time. Rd (remember these are only MY opinions) less dance time and more skill on how you are aiming. I have also stated that if you guys can't find an ND server that fits your liking, VOICE YOUR OPINIONS concerning the soffiles servers that SIT EMPTY. If SirPaul or Elmo ( alex ) comes to me and asks about an ND mod. I will get one based on you guys and they can install it in there. But instead people complain the game is dying, instead of doing something about it. :D You all know enough people who play , and still play to date. But you complain there are no ND servers. Plenty of Xd servers for those who like that ( MY OPINION) unskilled type of play. Everyone has an opinion on what they deem skilled and unskilled play. No one's single is any better or any worse. But understand they are opinions and people are entitled to them. Many of the ND players think RD takes no skill, and so on and so forth. Whatever..... It is a game. Find what you like and stick to it ;)

If you would do that, I would kiss your crusty toenails! finding out what everyone wants, and than making a mod on that, thats a very good idea.

It's not only the mod that matters. I'd never play on american server.

xd/rd is more fast paced and less aiming especially if no recoil, where nd is all aiming and strategic I for one prefer nd. it's just my kind of game. and by that Im not saying im better than anybody, but I would just have a hard time getting use to xd, vice versa for an xd player..

I don't think there is less aiming involved in XD. Actually, since it's one hit one kill you are supposed to aim better then your opponent... and move. If you miss on ND you have like one complete minute to still shoot one.. cause my feeling is that it takes about 1 minute to shoot someone.

nothing wrong with that.. and obviously xd/rd has gained more and more popularity the past few years, and basically has taken over the game, which causes more nd players to leave and develope some kind of hate for the 'new generation'..

Yes, it seems like the bigger the XD scene gets the more it has to deal with remarkts that it doesn't involve skill. Wich in my opinion Merrick, is complete DS. There are a lot of good, skilled players out there.

XD involves LESS teamplay, yes... But it sureley doesn't involve less skill. If people can sit still in corners like you say there is something wrong with the server settings. If you are pinned into your spawn it's pretty much the same. I don't know how it is now on Noble's servers but they used to have spawnkill penalties.

What you say is true, if you are used to XD you can't play on other damage settings. For one, I get bored with having to shoot people over and over. I hate it when people steal my kill... I am jumping and ducking bullets.. I finally hit someone.. in the arm or whatever.. and someone else finishes him off... Very frustrating :rolleyes::)

Everyone that keeps saying that there is no skill to it should play some XD 1 vs 1... No camping, no spawnkilling...

If you would do that, I would kiss your crusty toenails! finding out what everyone wants, and than making a mod on that, thats a very good idea.

What EVERYONE wants doesnt exist in this game... Thats why there are so many servers with different settings I guess.

I completely disagree. the very fact that it only takes 1 hit to kill logically results in more camping, and yes less aiming. You're always supposed to aim better than your opponent! and in XD you only have to aim better that 1 time, where in ND you have to do it 4 times and therefore XD requires less skill. it's obvious, and that you admit it takes you a whole minute to kill in ND is a perfect example! It seperates the 'more skilled' from the 'less skilled'.. If you get caught from behind in XD you're dead! In ND you have the chance to turn around and prove you're the better aimer.. simple example: I recently introduced my 12 year old brother to SoF2, and he too prefers XD due to the fact that he cant get a single kill in a ND server! 'cause an experienced ND player has no problem killing him even if he spots them first.
