    CTF mode dead

    Hi,

    since Courtyard and ironrworks are for premium CTF mode is realy dead. good job ID!

    go for more modes like 1 flag ctf who will never be popular. ID Software just works on modes which players don't want. So much timeless thing.. ID Software just have to push community but they will kill the community if they woulnt stop it

    Oh. CTF is dead. Damn.

    I guess I should stop playing 4-5+ matches every day, then. It's just not proper, what with the mode being dead and all.

    If you see an empty Overlord or Distant screams (which I particularly hate from my 16-man CTF days in Q3TA, but I digress), then you surely know that almost all of the oldschool CTFers are gone :P

    Really the only CTF that's going on right now is either on pickups or on private servers. The rest is as you can call it, history.

    I'm going to be deadly serious, but at one point Q2 and Q3 scene might prove to be more active and populated than QL. Hope it doesn't come to this. We've been there, done that, time to move on...I guess.

    Dead =/= players playing different maps
    Dead =/= Competitions running http://clanbase.ggl.com/news_league.php?lid=12914 http://www.houseofquake.com/leagues/view/9

    Dead = 0 players and 0 competitions

    No, its dead. For the average player looking for a ctf game, 1 server running where i have 110 ping to = dead.

    Competitions being run also doesnt mean anything to the average player because he or she isnt good enough to participate.

    Ive been playing for a week. Id love to play some ctf, but theres not much incentive to do so when ill have to learn the maps and where the items spawn, and be frustrated because im getting destroyed by far more experienced players while trying to learn those maps.

    Right now I see 11 CTF matches (obviously not counting private, hidden, and invite only servers) with 68 players in them. It also doesn't count tier 1-3 servers as far as I know (I don't think servers you can't join show up in the browser?). Whether that counts as dead or not is in the eye of the beholder, so to speak.

    If you're not a premium member you may not see all the servers on the list.

    that you malk_?

    see it as you want, leagues and their elitists or oldschoolers are a minority so thats a pretty bad example right there.


    what i mean by dead is:

    people play less, some stop, lots of people disappeared (maybe the anti-cheat is effective?)
    its been said over n over that the game doesnt really increase its playerbase by the big skill demand this game has.
