Multiplayer discussion.
No this is not a typical "WE PAID FOR IT AND WE WANT IT NOW" thread.

What i'm looking for is a more positive hype building thread, where we discuss playing multiplayer and what we anticipate and what maps and modes we look forward to playing.

So, what do you look forward to most about multiplayer? What's your favorite play style? Favorite weapon to use? Do you look forward to doing Co-op with friends or are you a PVP only kinda person?

If a new mode could be added to multiplayer what would you like it to be? Any particular features you'd like?

Personally i'd like CTF and i'd like the ability to join games in progress.

Edit: So it was suggested i link to a post that has info on how to play multiplayer through YANG. So here is the guide to the steam YANG tutorial for us all to enjoy until the time comes that ME gets multiplayer: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=133577609

Alternatively if any of you enjoy a bit of humor i made a silly little tutorial for fun based on this idea and in the spirit of duke it's a bit crude and rude so don't take anything personal. http://i.imgur.com/9gmpGwO.jpg

A gamemode I would love to see is survivor mode. endless waves of pig cops, troopes, etc. . 1 life and very sparse drops of health here and there.

Oh that would be cool. Following what format? A set base or like expandable areas with points much like CoD zombies? (sorry, nearest example i could think of :P)

CTF and joining in progress games would be great. I'd also like to have a round based arena mode ((Similar to Quake 3's rocket arena and Quakelive's Clan Arena.)) where you start out with all weapons and armor and frag the other teams players until none is left and you win the round.

Also the ability to set the number of lives in co-op mode per map would be great. I don't like being able to just respawn constantly til you win.

There is actually one map in Duke Nukem 3D that supports DukeTag which is like CTF. If you play The Queen in Multiplayer there will be special buttons that you can choose and some doors will open up and you will see scoreboards.

Oh you mean like following the counter strike format of gameplay, that's always a personal favorite!

Yeah that would be good too, as it is even on single player with the mode set to the second hardest it's pretty easy to beat if you know what to do.

I think they should add like sort of an official mod support that would also work in multiplayer where you can install mods much like the way you used to with half life 1 where you'd put the files under its own file name underneath a mods folder and add a feature in the server browser for downloading mods so you don't have to go hunting them down to join a particular game. I personally think that would be a nice addition to make the game a bit more mod friendly than it already is but that might be just pipe dreaming or asking to much for a game that goes for 10 USD regular and is a few years off from being as old as myself :P

nice post Skyware. Im looking for good old 1v1 dukematch on regular maps such as Hollywood Holocaust, Red Light, LA Rumble, Raw Meat, Fahrenheit, Hotel Hell, Movie Set, Bank Roll, Freeway, Stadium maybe even Duke Burger. I can play also FFA games but not COOP (sorry) plus if it will be possible to play on usermaps then i ll be there. Fav weapons are shotty and rpg, style would say balanced/spawn r*pe. New features : Team Dukematch,dedicated servers, leaderboards.

I think i kind of remember that... it's been awhile :P

Still i think CTF as more in the sense that most of us think of it would be a great addition. some people went so far as to make new ports to support it with Hduke, as much as i love the porting community i would like to see more modern convienance come to one of the best games ever made in its generation so we as players don't need to juggle ports and game connectors and such.

Seems like that's 3 for a CTF mode! :P maybe for more duke themed it could be akin to the postal 2 version "Capture the babe" or something more gimmick oriented like that.

Thank you

Yeah that's gonna be awesome.

I think the thing we all look forward to most though is the loss of the "Lost sync" notice every 10 minutes of gameplay :P

Shotty is always best gun, unless at distance then the pistol is actually of use.

Anyone here giddy as i am at the thought of a dukematch clan league and clan battles? :D

how about shrinker? nothing hurts more than being shrinked and then crushed when you have full hp and all stuff except steroids...that's real pain :)

Or unwittingly opening a door with a bunch of laser mines behind it :P

Thank you Lunick for being an awesome moderator of the forums. It is appreciated, even though I'm sure the task is tiring.

I don't really know what to expect, I've never played Duke multiplayer, I'm not even sure if I'll like it. I probably won't be much of a co-op guy considering I've played enough where I'm comfortable beating the game on any difficulty by myself. So I guess I'll try the PVP, I hope I enjoy it considering how much hype it has behind it on these forums.
aiden maaaaaan! Jul 8, 2013 @ 9:53pm 
i wold love a CTF mode where both sides of the map are mirrors of eachother only maby the walls are diff colours, that wold be fun also a survival type gamemode that you gotta fight waves after waves of enemys till u die wold sound interesting too ;o
