    Very nice post man...basically almost all the info I need..do you know anything the respawn stuff?

  3. #3

    good

    can u find something about respawn

  4. #4
    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.

    Umm, maybe...I dunno.

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

    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.

  8. #8
    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.

  9. #9
    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.

    I damn hope so..

  13. #13
    Seriously guys..

    I have YET to see anything that says it WON'T be respawn.

    For me, that is great. But you SOCOM freaks might be out of luck.

  14. #14
    the only info i've seen that impied it would be round based was early eaaaaaaaaaarly development..so honestly, i dunno anymore, but after watching the developer interview#2 at gamespot, my hype has been restored regardless if its respawn or round based

    Have you ever played halo2? its kinda like that.

  17. #17
    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"

  21. #21
    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.

  22. #22

    yea

    i wonder about that 2 beer

  23. #23
    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

    Never thought of that...and if one arm is limbed the other arm is harder to shoot with..so ur recoil is all crazy.

    exactly it would be sick as all hell
