RtCW Multiplayer: how many people are still playing?
Posted 21 April 2004 - 07:55 PM
But I'm desperate for some online WWII style gaming. About the only game that will play well on my machine is Return to Castle Wolfenstein (the demo worked well).
How many users are there these days on the RtCW servers? Is it worth picking up this game now?

That makes two of us :cry: . Im tired of my old iMac, cant play any new games, Im sick of playing the same old stuff (Age of Kings, Diablo2, SW: Galactic Battlegrounds, UT) I want a new comp dammit.
Oh RTCW MP is better than MOHAAs, at least for me it is.

*(Bonus Ram and memory. Otherwise BG and D2 would eat my machine)

RTCW is still played, i still think its the best online FPS although i must admit to playing lots of generals recently.
If you like RTCW and fancy joining a really fun tournament then visit www.battlefieldeurope.net Join the allies!! must be the best because thats where I am :-D

That and the fact that I don't think there are any multiplayer FPS out there (as good as RTCW) that I can run on my lowly 667MHz PB G4.

RTCW is the ONLY Quake 3-based game that will not allow multiple computers behind a firewall using NAT to play over the internet. In other words, multiple instances of the same IP. Never had these problems with Quake 3 itself, nor Elite Force. All versions of UT have never had these problems either.
Granted I've always enjoyed RTCW and on occasion will get online by myself. But when you've got a group of buddies over (with mixed Macs and PCs) who all would like to play RTCW online (and each owns a LEGAL copy I might add), yet only one or two people can join the same server with the rest forced to endlessly wait or be kicked, it got annoying real fast.
And I have no other explaination but to blame bad planning, bad coding, Punkbuster, or the problematic CD verification for this. And what really pains me is that they give away the Enemy Territory for free, when yet we all paid for RTCW, want to play it badly, but simply cannot get online together at the same time on the same connection. :x
OK, rant over.
