    Played it.

    Well.. it's ut :P But with great graphics and some new cool things... but not a whole lot. Anyways, it's a beta and I'll wait with judging it till they release a retail product.

    It's also pretty laggy. I mean, you won't find a server where there aren't a somewhat big delay on. We're talking about 200 ms from clicking your mouse till your weapon fires(and it's not my comp, the game is completely smooth, high settings, in instant action)

    Also, the server browser is full of bugs.

     

    Aside from that, it's a pretty sweet game.

    You're an idiot.  People have to buy servers that are hosted in the U.S. before you see a good ping.  A good friend of mine pre-ordered a public server for the demo, and he can't even get it up until another two days.

     

    Its not a game's fault that the servers lag.  Its either your isp or a crappy company is hosting your/their server.

    Did you even play the game?

     

    The browser doesn't work:

    - It can't sort correct

    - Ping is inaccurate(obviously)

    - And you'll often get the "connect failed" on nearly full servers

     

    This is ok as it's a beta demo, but the networking really isn't from what I've experienced. I did try a couple of servers that were alright, but since the browser is pretty much broken it's difficult to see where the server was just bad, or the following that the server software isn't tweaked yet.

    Saying "Its not a game's fault that the servers lag.  Its either your isp or a crappy company is hosting your/their server" Only shows your complete ignorance towards game networking. The game has nothing to with servers lagging? Of course not. If you buy a good enough server, any shitty piece of code can be run with good results.

    And why would I want to go to an US server? You mind want to check my profile information, I'm from Denmark. That aside, my ISP is fine, and I have no problem with any other FPS I play of that kind.

    So it's narrowed down the 3 things:

    Either all the servers I tried had noticible lag issues

    Networking code still needs some work

    I couldn't find the good servers because of the browser

     

    Next time, don't be an asshole when replying.

     

    Also, I suggest you download the demo and see for yourself. If don't want to do that, or if your computer can't run it, go check the beta forums.

    well i personally absolutely love the game

    i am so glad that they didnt change the UT feel and style

    the graphics are great

    i did however also have trouble with internet games, pings were extremely high and the server browser thing was messed up kinda

    but once they get some good servers i cannot wait!

    I'm not really excited about the game since I find FPS using a time period based setup and unlimited respawns to be a little boring.  However, the engine  I can't wait to get my hands on that level editor and make some awesome levels and game mods.  Woot to working with an actual good level editor that also has good shader support.  I'm also getting Crysis and Project Offset just to use its engine.

    first part: yes

    second part: no, there have been more than 3 unreal games, but this is the third one to have the tournament part slapped on there (it was going to be Unreal Tournament 2007, yet this changed a few months back i believe)

  • JackcoltJackcolt Member UncommonPosts: 2,170

    Ok I just found a lag free server :D

    It's pretty hard because the browser is so bugged(imagine how a 36 ping would lag?) Anyways, I found a server I usually play on in other games - Multiplay.co.uk

    Played for about an hour with my brother... frecking awesome!

    AFAIK It changed name from Unreal Tournament 2007 to Unreal Tournament 3. I think they use the number 3, because they utilize their new Unreal Engine 3.
