    It was riding on the hopes and dreams of the UT2K4 community along with the extra hype they included. I'm pretty sure the UT99 crew was interested as well, so basically everyone wanted to see what Epic would come out with.

    Haha, now people are back to playing their games and waiting for UT3 to catch up content wise. Still, enough people are staying to at least have some multi-player.

    I wish you could at least use one of those big harpoon guns and bag a Leviathan or Darkwalker. Reel that puppy in and gut it for its blubber and use it for light a lantern or something.

    Oh and maybe that rock crashing down thing fell on the lobby I thought we where getting to chat to people. And maybe the guy that said loading time will be super fast from one map to the next was in the lobby and he was mortally wounded so it was never implemented.

    Let's compile a little list of changes to OnyxCoast:
    • Target Painter designating targets for a submarine missile strike. I believe OnyxCoast would be that map. It has no side objectives, but the sub is still there.
    • Cicada. Not many of those around... only seems to be in Torlan and Dusk. The fact that most Warfare maps are urban (with nasty blocking volumes) or indoors doesn't leave many opportunities for Cicadas and Raptors.
    • Lots of terrain, or so it would appear.
    • Collapsing rock bridge.
    • Nodes properly shielded by the buildings (where the Levi and the Darkwalkers can't arbitrarily take them out and choke the map).
    • Energy Turret. Switching to the Rocket Turret is probably an improvement, though. I never liked the simplistic point-and-click "layzur" gameplay the Energy Turrets offer anyway.
    • SPMA.

    I wonder if that cool map we saw in the promo vids was actually WAR-ColdHarbor.

    It's like that for most games, but yes, it's especially true for UT3.

    Heh yea... really lame and that's exactly what I was thinking yesterday when I played Onyx a few time before going bed. I was like: "Hmm, isn't there suppose to be a falling rock bridge in that map?!". I wonder if they kept it at least for Offline since it was too much for Online servers to handle or if it's because they are just lazy ********. Not as worse as the TONS of options from UT2004 missing but still..

    Speaking of OnyxCoast, I need to test a few things with a strat I have... I would like to do a 1v10 (me being the one) and see if I can be stopped. If anyone is interested, please shoot me a tell.

    the bridge node DOES have a turret.. a rocket turret to be exact.

    The map in it's current state is awesome to be sure. It just could have been so much more


    I think it was actually different in the trailer though. There's the archway the paladin went under, the base looked different, the nodes are inside, and on of the nodes looks different.

    I'd also like to know what happened to the old voice actors from 2004. They were in that trailer. Did they get fired or something?

    I also was a little dissappointed with OnyxCoast, because I hoped to see something like in E3 2006 trailer, but current one isn't bad either.

    The Paladin and the Cicada are gone
    The Bridge node no longer has a turret
    The two Prime nodes are now on the building roof instead of inside

    Still a great map though - one of my favourites.
