First off I would like to say exellent job Epic. This expansion+patch+steam deal has really helped revitalize the online community.
Now I've heard from a few friends and through various posts here in the forums, that the downloads are taking a long time, or are not working due to an overload on the steam servers.
So I'm putting up this poll, just to see if people would agree that it would be a good idea to extend the "FREE" trial. Maybe for a week, or just next weekend as well. Anyway, everyone vote and leave comments if you wish.
Yeah I was about to make the same thread, I have a lot, lot of friends that can't download it through steam because the servers are overloaded, some are already giving up, this could be fixed if you extend for the rest of the week, that would surely boost ut3 community even more ty
Yeah, I've heard a lot of people have been met with slow download speeds and nonstart errors. I know Steam updated to fix the nonstart errors, but it's probably too little too late at this point.
All that to say... about a third of the people who might potentially get the game probably haven't been able to, and another third will probably only be able to play the "all weekend trial" for a single day before it expires.
So, I think it would be wise to extend it for the rest of the week and through the weekend, or restart it next weekend.
LMAO! I was just thinking about this. I know there are going to be a lot of people that went through hell to download it and wont be able to play it because it took so long. I can't even update my own copy on steam because it's getting hammered so badly.
Would be really cool if they could extend it a bit longer so more people got the chance to play.
just make UT3 completely free..... Its already on the Walmart bargain bin shelves and not selling.
At first that seems a logical thing. However, it would be only profitable if ads would appear in the game. Why? Simply, if then UT4 is being released nobody buys it because UT3 is free and is already good wiht all the mods etc.
