Movable slow volume cubes would be hilarious.

    Woot yes! Lots of gimmicks!

    People will always be able to make a mod or mutator to remove stuff like this, but it's probably a lot harder to make a mod or mutator to put stuff like this in. I say leave it in, let people remove it if they don't like it.

    I think people need to reserve judgment until they actually use the thing. Personally I look at a lot of the "I've never used it but I know it's crappy" posts and think of how my 6 year old brother (now 10 and still doing it) says "I hate the taste of that food" but he's never tried it in his life.

    I think a bigger problem than the addition of this would be making the mistake of having another "standard servers" check box. I've yet to read anything about that though. Personally, I think they need an option (disabled by default) to only display vanilla servers. People who have bandwidth problems would love that, being able to choose how much to download....

      About the standard box, I have no problem with it as long as it is UNchecked by default.

        Same (I leave mine unchecked, it's useless anyway IMO, servers that "don't change gameplay significantly" and thus are "standard" still can require you to download 50 megs of files before you can even look at the map, whereas a "vanilla servers only" button (must be disabled by default) would be more useful.
        But anyway, we should get back on topic xD (not that this thread was on topic in the first place, look at the title & first post, then look at how it's just degraded to an opinion shouting match, no offense intended to anyone of course)

        I think an option to make it movable would be cool, but disabled by default, it's not something you'd want in a serious game IMO, but not all games have to be serious
        (anyone else ever joined a DM server with a ping of 500+ just for the hell of being stuffing around and having fun?)

          I think people just need to step back and realize this is just a game, a game that is supposed to entertain, not one that is supposed to control your life or temper.

            Yeah but people want to turn it into some kind of completive sport.

              Or it brings in a situation where you kill all the campers in the flag area and easily run away. Hence no more touch and run with "BOOOSTER" Adrenaline.

              PS adrenaline has been removed so even better!

                I wonder if there's anything preventing people from putting SlowVolume on the Power Core, that way any projectile weapons will be slower hitting the core.

                  There is no problem with that, IMO. Remember that you still can atack it at slower speed, but they can heal it as slow as.

                    I doubt thats possible and even if so whats the difference.

                    ONE BIG QUESTION: Can we have a system where the slow volume is not permanent but will dissolve as it can not exist in air for infinite time. The time period is up to you. Or it could be destroyed using flames from rockets basting when hitting the ground near it or some such thing?

                    PS: IF Epic wants to keep it permanent then thats fine with me. Whatever they would do would be to get us to enjoy so what the hell.

                      It is not just a game, it is Unreal Tournament. Perhaps Epic have forgotten that! It would be a shame to see an excellent game series go down the tubes because of forums full of I want this kids and silly little things like Hover Boards and Slow Volumes but I guess I will wait and see! Been playing games since my old 286 and I know a gameplay killer when I see one!

                        Yeah, a trap set by epic to excite you into buying the game.

                        Slow volume is the worst idea epic have produced, what other gimmicks do they have up their sleeves to attract buyers, besides the hoverboard.

                        I honestly ask you, who is going to stay in a slow volume? If suicide is still an option, more ppl are going to be doing it.
                        But my guess is, epic removed suicide so we can't get out when we get stuck in it to balance gameplay. More garbage to hinder gameplay.

                          It will be fun to put the two teams' slow volumes together and record funny UT videos, like impact hammer duels, lol

                          (there is space for humor, not ?)

                            You have just lost all credibility in this thread. Please refrain from posting in it again. Thank you, and have a nice day.

                              Now people guarding flags are going to deply the slow vol on flag then hide, and when they hear the flag taken sound, they will pop out to find the enemy slowly moving though then POW!

                              This is my only concern with it... I think it has been overlooked

                              The slow cube is only in warfare, so there will be no flag.

                                Why did one of the Epic guys say you can drop them off on a flag then?
