    Player Names

    Forgive me for asking a question that sounds like a noob, but I've just got this game (just got a gaming PC in fact). I'm liking it so far, but I've noticed that in every online multiplayer game I've been in the players' names are those of their characters. Mine is my Steam user name. I've only seen one other player with a name different than a character's name.

    What's up with this? Is it because I'm playing through Steam?

    Those are Bots. Real people have thier own names.

      That's what I was afraid of. I was thinking I was playing against real players the whole time.

        This question is both sad and funny at the same time. Both of which are directed at Epic, not at you, level250. You're fine.

        Yep. Sad and funny. But mostly sad.

          Oh man please come play in the servers we play! No bots there and all unique player names!

          Cheers mate.

            LOL Thanks. Up until now, my only experience playing online FPS is on Xbox Live, where you know that everybody is human and you always see unique player names, never bots.

            Is there anyway to filter out the games/servers that allow bots? I get royally owned playing against other people, but it feels better to get one kill in a game with humans than 20 kills in a game with bots.

              Thanks for the invite. For what servers should I be looking?

                  I like team play mostly, team CTF or team deathmatch. I find working as a team more rewarding than going solo.

                  It's been a long, long time since I have played an FPS with a keyboard and mouse though, so yeah...I get mine handed to me right now.

                    My clan plays VCTF... if you see any UTF players, be sure to say hi. We're a pretty friendly group.
