can u find something about respawn

Brabbit
16th Jun 2005, 00:17
I found two articles about respawns, but noting on rounds.


But balance in online shooters is more than just making sure the weapons match up. The team is also experimenting with things like variable spawn times in the game. For example, if you're a cop and you shoot dead an opponent, his respawn penalty may be 10 seconds. However, if you manage to actually apprehend your foe and put him away without killing him, he won't respawn for 30 seconds. The team is also experimenting with ways to penalize cops for shooting NPCs, but they have yet to decide on a similar action that would apply a penalty to the bad guys as well. The aim is to end up with a final design that encourages cops to play like heroes, and bad guys to play like the homicidal maniacs portrayed in the game.

"ROCKETS"???? FREAKING ROCKETS?? ARE YOU SERIOUS? SHOW ME ONE SINGLE NEWS REPORT WHERE COPS EVER USED A FREAKIN ROCKET!! :mad:

the grenades i can see, still a little far fetched in my opinion but they're a helluva lot more feasible than rockets. so much for this being the socom killer everybody hoped for.

ShyTown
16th Jun 2005, 02:43
WTF! rockets... i can see now people banning that weapon from the game.

And so far all this info...they dont mention rounds only respawn times...so Im guessing no rounds.

J-Hood
16th Jun 2005, 03:33
I know they have RESPAWN but I never heard any vid or article say it until its offical I aint posting. I dont think Rockets will be as much as a noob weapon as socom to be honest. If your getting shot and you got it out most likely itll mess you up. It might be for distance,surprise attacks, or for the explosion to touch a player to damage them.

In the interview he said "battle other clans" As in form a group of people and battle the other group of people. He did not mention an option that has an ingame ladder. (as in you type the clan name and ask them if they want war or not)

same here, but all they seem to talk about is "respawn"

BEER
17th Jun 2005, 00:09
i couldn't care less about whether it's all respawn or not, i'm more worried about the hit detection system. respawn or not won't matter if you get killed by 2 shots in the arm because the game counted them as head shots, you'll still get frustrated and not want to play anymore.

17th Jun 2005, 01:51

2 shots to the arm with the right gun would kill someone,but i wanna see limb damage
like get shot in the right arm, no more shooting with that arm
gwt shot in the leg, you limp
get shot in the head....well yeah, you die

mbones50
17th Jun 2005, 06:29
that game will really kill socom 3 if it had that

Brabbit
17th Jun 2005, 06:35
Having RPG's will not "kill" socom 3. At this point there is nothing 25 to life can do to compete with socom 3(its going to do worse if its all respawn). The reasons are obvious no need to name them.

mbones50
17th Jun 2005, 06:45
if u really look at 25tl and socom 3 25tl really got the upper hand on the little things like the way cops hold there guns from the gangster everbody run different and it make u want to play single player also u can custom yuor dude ok socom3, 32players for what i dont know y they would do this because think about this its 16vs16 and its down to 1on1 u know its go be hard to find that person and its alot more lag cuz people still go be throwing them grenades like crazy and plus who really care about different attachments cuz u can run around with a silent m14 yo so to me its the small thing that count and i think 25tl go be better and real fun to play when it come out and socom3 is something that is getting old. i been waiting on something new to come to play cuz socom is getting boring

Brabbit
17th Jun 2005, 07:11
To some it might be some fresh air. Since SOCOM is the Franchise of 3rd person online shooter game. However, it will not be able to compete with SOCOM 3. 25 to life looked very fun when I first saw it and the customizing of your own gangsta blew me away, but after learning that the game has 90% possibality of being all respawn it just killed the game for me.

EC_KING
17th Jun 2005, 09:53
let's put ALL RESPAWN aside, 25TL and SOCOM game can't really compete much with eachother than being released at the same time.(25TL/Socom3) SOCOM has 2 developed games out, (i know socom3 is getting released) during the 1st to 2nd they went with what the player base wanted out of socom1. So Socom is way ahead at this point. Also i think theres plenty of room for GREAT GAMES. thoses that play othen, are mainly in some type of clan, So having "ONLINE FRIENDS" and doing wars is with your clan is just a swap of the disk, also if this is truly another great game, than clans will carry over to here and flip back and forth. So the PLAYER BASE may in fact be the same. those that have xbox, i have xbox but never really played it much. So i really can't comment on any games there. i have played Counter Strike for a bit and i liked it, But that was after playing Socom1. putting these 2 together is not really fair because i think socom ran off the idea of the counter strike feel. It's said the 25TL will have the SOCOM feel, i'd love to play it then, thats why i'm here.

J-Hood
17th Jun 2005, 13:14
I pray they dont make it too realalistic as in you get shot in the arm you cant use it because 1 shot will cripple you and to me that would be stupid (yes I did hear developers say it would be this way) but that is just my oponion. People who have NO SKILL are people who complain. If you were so GOOD then why did you get killed by a noob weapon? (Shows how good you are right there) This game does have the potentional to beat S2 but not S3. They should of released 25TL earlier because SOCOM3 might be an issure.

socom 3 is gonna have it so if u get hit in the arm ull know it, thats as real as it gets, and as far as lag goes dont jump to conclusions just yet cus there using a different way of runnin maps that hasnt been used in either 1 or 2, and one of the reasons s3 is gonna have big maps is b cus of ppl complainin about nades killin them early in the game, and if u like ur map like the old school of 1 and 2 up close u can make the map smaller, as well as ban weapons from being used, 25TL may have been a contender against s2 but as far as S3 goes theres no point to even comparing them.... as far as this game goes its just an alternate for me when i dont wanna play s3..... o and btw im gettin the beta of this game soon enuf so ill let yas know if its even worth buying.....

Eidos' official 25 to life website (25tolife.com) says coming OCT. So games usually never come out before a release date. It's either gonna be OCT or later.

Maybe he wants strip clubs so bad because theres no other access to it :D Just kidding. Cops and Gangsters can pick up a gun from either side. Yes its like socom and you can carry primary,seccondary,melee, and explosives.

Because I'd like to have like 3 flash bangs and like tear gas :)

Depends on the bomb I think. I think like HEs or flashbangs may carry up to 3,6 or somthing. I got bad emmory but I belive you can carry up to 2 explosives like socom. I dont know about the armor effecting your health but probably in final game I didnt notice it in beta. Yes cops and gangsters can kick doors.

That's cool dude. Too bad you can't ram open doors that are stuck or locked :).

Oh and I looked at some pictures and saw that you can have like 4 flashbangs but I don't know if this means you can have like 2 he's and 2 flashbangs.

Well it doesn't matter. Heh.

Hey man did you pre-order the game yet? I really don't know if I should, since I was thinking about waiting to see the ratings first. I made a mistake buying Ghost Recon 2 and didn't look at any info of it. Now I regret it. I think that game should be like a 6.

Do you think that this games rating will be high like Halo? 7-10. I'd buy it if it was around those ratings.

Well peace dude, thanks.

Marker rent it before you play if your worried. If I was you I would preorder this game looks promosing and if you like games like socom/halo then you will definitly like this. I havent preordered theres a reason why but I cant say why but im definitly gonna have it the first day it comes out. 1/10 I expect 7' If they add alot more maps then definitly a solid 8.

Hmm. Well I loved Socom, and I don't even know what that got for a raiting but that was fun. But now I sorta want the same kind of game but with cops and thugs. So I'm guessing this will be a tight game. I guess I can wait till it comes out so I don't want my money.

Hey J-Hood when you pick different inventory such as weapoons and stuff does your walking speed differ?

yeah holding a pistol well make you run but hold an ak will make you walk.

6th Aug 2005, 05:04
so can't a gangster switch to a pistole and put the ak on his back for secondary?


And does it take one shot for a taser to bring someone down? If so I bet it wears off if you don't quickly apprehend them right heh?

Yup 1 shot (its Hard to shoot that thing) Im not sure how long it lasts but i think it goes away fast.

It might not change but it could help the player shoot because your moving slower. Yes you can crouch.


Hey J-Hood did you try out the .44 magnum? :D

Wehn crouching I really payed no attention if it was better but its probably the same. Yes you can crouch.

I think I have but I dont remember it. I might need a pic of it. My bad about not being able to answer questions perfectly I was gonna test every gun and give yall as much info as possible. But I kept thinking I think i know everything there is to know.

You know you was super HYPED when you first played/heard about socom. Its like comparing a New game to an OLD game that lost its hype and played out. When you compare it to S3 then you know you got a match. Both still got their hype. Probably sick of hearing about S3 and it begins to bore (I lost hype for s3). Im pretty sure you dont have $200 :D on ya you can also pay me in paypal ill pm you address later. lol talk ya stuff I backed up my words in beta :thumbsup:

if u really look at 25tl and socom 3 25tl really got the upper hand on the little things like the way cops hold there guns from the gangster everbody run different and it make u want to play single player also u can custom yuor dude ok socom3, 32players for what i dont know y they would do this because think about this its 16vs16 and its down to 1on1 u know its go be hard to find that person and its alot more lag cuz people still go be throwing them grenades like crazy and plus who really care about different attachments cuz u can run around with a silent m14 yo so to me its the small thing that count and i think 25tl go be better and real fun to play when it come out and socom3 is something that is getting old. i been waiting on something new to come to play cuz socom is getting boring
Yes, but No respawn is better, if you ask me.Reasons: If like you teamed someone on the opposite team, they could always respawn, have 5 or w/e guys go with him and team you one by one. Anyway, respawn and no respawn are both cool

marker227
11th Oct 2005, 00:48
Okay guys... You know how in socom every once and a while there will be 1v1 because everyone else is dead and it gets all quiet. Since some levels on Socom are really dark and its hard to find people (which I think thats fun). Will 25 to life have any levels that could be potentially like that at night with a few people?

The trailers to me seem like its always going to be a crazy fire fight here and there. That's fun but I like a quiet game every once and a while.

Example: One by one your team goes down. Then your the last man around and all you have is a sniper rifle. Well.... You setup and wait for people to walk by at a distance. Before you know it, you could win the match or take a lot of them out before dieing.

It's nice to have to run around looking for people. Especially if they are campers :thumbsup: .
