We do have the game mode "Rifle Deathmatch" which is exactly that, indeed that is not realistic in that it recreates a battle as it was and indeed is like playing moh:aa/cod2/bf3 "rifle only" servers of days past.

The frontlines mode is however trying to recreate trench warfare with an attack-counter attack mechanism where you attack a trench line, fend-off an enemy counter attack and then advance to the next line. Also the game is filled with historical units, 100% recreated ww1 weapons and locations set on the whole of the western front (as can be seen on the interactive map of the western front).

If you refer to the fact that it does not breath enough the grim atmosphere of battles such as passchendaele, we are working on adding that scenario.

how isn't it like WW1 and how is it like CoD?

Well if i remeber right in WW1, you and your squad would go over the top and run like **** to the other trench, and try to kill all the enimies in that trench. And try to stay there and secure the trench

^^^^^^ well, that pretty much describes the gameplay of Frontlines mode...soooo...I'm confused. Have you only played RDM?

Eh, I dunno. I suppose one could say any FPS is like CoD, I mean, how many CoD's are there now? It's kinda like saying Dark Forces is too much like Doom, or Age of Empires is too much like Command and Conquer. Personally, I like the atmosphere, and find it very WWI-style, but...then again WWI could be said to be too much like the American Civil War in that it featured a lot of rifles and trenches. Or you could say WWII is too much like WWI becuase it features Germany as an aggressor and a ton of combat took place in Europe. In the end tho, the gameplay is what makes me a fan of Verdun (I think it captures the vibe of trench warfare purty d4mn well), but yeah it is somewhat reminiscent of CoD 2 I guess, but I personally like that

I do too i think there should be a thing where you die and wait till everyone else dies then all run over the trenches at once again and so on...and there should be more people ....Call of Duty 2 is the best...

people actually spawn in waves of attackers at once indeed. Also they get a certain time to take the enemy trench, if they fail the enemy gets to counter-attack, if they succeed they have to wait till the enemy attacks.

and one guy playing around in the back lines stops your team spawning for the rest of the game.

thats what you do, apart from RDM but thats a death match, which is a universal FPS game style.

The game is good dont compare it to call of duty. Call of duty is nowhere near where the levels of verdun is at

One problem in this is scale. Where the ww1 smallest unit of manover was for the brits 120 men a good part in to the war, evolving to 10 man units of manover.
While ww2 (or ww cod) features units as small as 2 or 4.
ww1 night sorties and raids is propably the scale where the game is now (culd be intresting flag capture game mode).
This will propably be somewhat helped when the game supports more squads per side, alltough i wuld prefer larger squads (and more rifles).

it is a insult to refer to this call of duty it is not it is ww1 the game is not broken liek call of duty the guns are more balnaced then call of duty anyone who refers this too call of duty plays to much call of duty and thinks everything is like call of duty this is not call of duty and never will be get this in to your thick skull

Bishop Feb 10 @ 3:47am 
120? where's you get that as the smallest? The armies used Platoons and Sections/Squads, Platoon is 30+men and a Section/Squad was around 10. Germany also began to use the fireteam set up as well to try and break the stalemate which was 4 men working closely together.

RDM clearly feels like COD. Yep, it's like playing a good old call of duty.

RDM is the coolest aspect of the game in my opine...in fact I'ts all I play.

It's called Verdun. Quit comparing apples to oranges.
