    Halloween Infected mode. Let's keep it!

    I'm loving this new mode to bits. I simply cannot stop playing for a good ammount of time once I get into it.

    According to the website, this mode is only going to be maintained throughout Halloween. Why? I can understand that it was brought up to celebrate the yearly ceremony, but why can't we keep it in the game? I'd love to always be able to load up the game and get right into the fun, specially considering how addictive it all is.

    Please consider this suggestion! I don't want it to be taken away

    PS: Does anyone know if ID software has an e-mail for players to send requests to? I'd love to suggest this to them, unless their moderators and community managers roam around this forum and might see this, of course.

    Thank you!

    Close, but not quite right. Every single pro player on a premium level server can invite up to five standard players. Well he can invite more but only five may join at a time.
    I recommend this script to allow friends to get automatic invites : http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/107333
    I recommend this script to be able to invite people (even out of your friends list) through the console : https://userscripts.org/scripts/show/134612

    I like this mod too, but indeed it is kinda invites one to behave 'campy'.
    In fact, everyone left not infected is in a way forced to find a spot where one can easily defend himself.
    Like stated before, on top of the castle.
    I've seen a lot of players come up with 'creative' ideas, like crawl throug windows and sit their b*tts on narrow edges to shoot every infected coming too close. Also there was the possibility to 'shoot' each other up ledges unreachable by the infected, by use of the SG.
    Are these forms of 'camping' one could get permanently banned for, or is it just a way of gameplay fed by the charasteristics of the Infectedmod as a whole?
    What's your opinion?

    It's totally legit. I don't play like that but it's legit and logic for survivors to camp.

    It seems to be one of the very few situations where camping is actually a winning strategy (I mean above T3 ). The novelty has worn off for me But kry has come up with some settings for Infected which are pretty good fun, especially on smaller maps.

    btw, camping isn't a bannable offense If you want to sit in one spot and let everyone else grab all the map resources, good luck to you.

    @ DocP: Comment on this instead kry http://www.quakelive.com/forum/showt...l=1#post240787

    Ok, sure. Comment: Infected doesn't have items, no resources to grab.

    Serious comment: Best way to get infected fun is to introduce 1 point / 100 damage. And possibly removing the survivor bonus. Also try it without the mastermind, that's really great. Just need to minimize bonuses for survivors and perhaps only 1/100 damage. And remember to make the zombies move faster, try what's good for you but 1.2 - 1.4 felt good depending on other settings. Also insta (lower starting health, if basic insta, it's bad, all have rail.)
