    I play offline when I just don't want to play with and against Humans. I spent three years playing UT offline mainly because I only had dial up but I ended up with bots on Godlike (and tweaked besides the standard settings). I had them named with their own names too.

    I grew really attached to those guys. Even though it was just my extended army of artificially intelligent (or dumb if you look at it that way) robotic players, they were my crew and we had some **** good times together *sniff*.

    Then I kind of, nuked my computer by accident and... Forgot to save their personalities. But hey, that's why I'm buying UT3. So I can resurrect my army of bots.

    I'll play offline when testing settings. Otherwise online is the place to be.

    Yeah, same. Although sometimes if my network is screwy I'll play offline for a bit.

    before ut unreal had them.
    the unreal mp was unplayable out of the box and they were fun as well as necessary

    Not out of the box, but I remember playing with Steve Polge's custom reaperbots for Quake. And now he works for Epic!

    i play offline for several reasons. A lot of it is due to cheating.... rank systems have become even more worthless of the years as there are so many ppl out there who cheat to get their stats up. when your trying to get good at something, learning and what not, theres nothing like some Awhole who jus fragged you yelling at you to get out of the game because you suck! or plain insults everytime u get fragged lol.. Me personally had been waiting for YEARS to be able to play a multiplayer game type with the computer/bots. before UT99, there wasn't a single game that had bots in a multiplayer atmosphere, i had no idea why it took so long for a game developer to do, but even now, UT its almost solo in this aspect, still, after "nearly" 10 years, there isn't many other games that have bots on a multiplayer map. I wanted this for so long because the absolute LAG i used to get with games like quake, and the original Delta Force games on a 28.8K modem was hurrendous!!!! All these MMO's are great for example, but i tell ya something, i love to play a game where im not FORCED to log online to play if i dont want to, I like to have the option to go online or not, I can jus pick up and play without having to worry about connection difficulties.....
    Those are just a few of some reasons why I personally dont really take UT online. Lan games are more my thing if im playing against other players with better performance that way no one can disbute anyone whos winning on cheats and lag heh...

    haha! so true!

    I play online when I get tired of bots doing dumbass things and singling me out in a fight.

    I play offline when I want to try out dumb **** with my friends like tons of mutators and mods and when I get tired of people doing all the above.

    (I'll add in servers full of sniper-wanna-be's and random awful lag spikes that make me into a sniper-wanna-be. )

    I have never played 2k4 online. At first it was because of inadequate internet connection, but I really settled into playing offline, and I just piled so many custom mutators, maps, player models onto my games, trying to remake UT into whatever game I felt like playing. I wouldn't be able to do that online with a bunch of random players.

    I spent a lot of time playing online with the UT3 demo, so maybe my attitude will change for UT3 (haven't played a vanilla game of UT in so long, the weapons feel almost new!), but I'll probably spend at least as much time offline with mods and whatnot as I do online.

    i never play offline... competing vs human players is what makes ut so interesting
    offline is imo for training/testing purposes only

    I play offline a decent amount. It's nice to get away from the drama of everyday life and life on the servers. There I don't have to deal with the high school **** that you see all too often as well as the petty nuisances. Some of the many reasons are as follows:
