    I think it's a safe bet we'll have FF on.

      Yes. I can't promise it will be on come Day 1 (whenever the day is) but yes.

      Personally (as pokerface the person and not necessarily pokerface the GO), I'd prefer some smaller multiplier on FF in games like NS2 due to the nature of the combat and the tighter maps. I like FF to make people careful, but not outright punish people. That's just me on my soapbox though.

        Based on the nade spamming I've been seeing so far, I will welcome FF ON!

        3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

          I wonder if there would be a way to have FF ON, but have it only trigger after x damage? Best of both worlds, yes? I agree with Poker, some maps could really hurt. Maybe the first 5-10 damage would be the grace period before your mag dump on a fellow marine kills him?

                There may not be a friendly fire option...see loading screen tip on this screenshot: http://twitter.yfrog.com/ob62457425j

                      As an avid NS1 player. FF on would be lolz silly.

                        It should be reduced if it is included, maybe 25% damage to friendlies so that players have to be careful but more than two skulks can bite a node and players can shoot the feet of Exos to clear skulks without killing them.

                          Re: Friendly Fire

                          NS1 had friendly fire deal 1/3 normal damage by default (1/2 to yourself if using explosives). I would assume we'd want something similar here, if possible. But does NS2 even have a friendly fire server setting? I know friendly fire isn't active on vanilla servers, it might be something you'd have to mod in.

                          Oh, and hey again everyone. It's been a long wait. =)
