I don't know if that question is adequate... but I'd like to know if the new engine controls the different system specs. Means, for example, that some people in EF1 could jump out of the trench with certain settings (that depend on the computer they use), while others couldn't.
To shorten the question... will all players have the same gaming abilities independant of the computer configuration or setup?

As supervisor of the EF clanbase league and ex-admin of some other leagues I would have some questions concerning MP competition:
* Is there a chance Ritual will include a feature like EFIItv ?! It would be much more fun for competition to see matches ŽliveŽ ( QIII tv)
* Will there be a more easy to use interface for serveradmins, some people still have problems with reminding all those rcon commands
*Will ritual support the community with map-packages and patches, Raven was very lazy when it came down to patching [img]/forums/images/icons/confused.gif[/img] ... a small competition (with a price) would also encourage people to make mods/maps

Have Ritual decided to put Assimilation back in... or is there any chance of it coming out in a patch?

Also will the bots have any added intelligence...? The ones in EF were a tad dumb and couldn't navigate more complicated maps with systems of ladders etc.

The Answer is no. Its not part of MP in EF2. The current gameplay modes have been confirmed by Ritual in an interview. Assimilarion is not one of them.

Read my initial post again. [img]/forums/images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Either way, these were posted by neural link over in the other thread:

1) complete list of MP game modes
2) the list of classes for specialties
3) complete list of weapons & powerups & holdables and items

Will there be an option to 'Sit in any chair" in multiplayer?
I know sitting down has nothing to do with the gameplay,and would be a good way to get yourself vaporised.But it would still be cool to take a seat on the bridge of the Enterprise E.
A Star Trek RPG could easily be formed if this was an option.

Assimilation IS in it the EF2 MP....... But my questions are:

Q. Will there be a statistics tracking system like in the Q3 OSP mod in where players can track weapons accuracies, damage given/received, etc etc.....

Q. Will there be holdable items available like the detpack and such, if so what is the list of items available.

Q. Will Metaphisic Shield (Invulnerabilty) still be in EF2?

btw:I came up with the name "Metaphasic Sheilds" for the invulnerabilty shield in EF1 [img]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Beverly used Metaphisic shields to hide the Enterprise D in a Suns Corona and created a huge Solar flare to destroy her attacker.I figured if you could get that close to a sun with Metaphasic Sheilds, they aughta be strong enough for a player to go 'Lava Diving'.

It's a great Item.. If you don't have an I-Mod against 'the gold guy' all you can do is run, run, run. And it's great to do a quad/photon jump with those sheilds on.. [img]/forums/images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Instead of killing yourself to give the flag to someone else, it would be good to have a 'dropflag' key [img]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Ummm in Q3 when a player reaches below 25 health he yells out a painful cry that tells us that he is almost dead, but in EF that doesn't happen. Would be good to see that in EF2.

Ummmmmmmm lemme think.... :P Oh i dont like campers that stay in the base and rack up twice as many points as everyone else because they get awarded 2 points for a 'defence' kill. You should only get 1 point for a kill if your in base. [img]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

What power-ups are available in MP, ie. quad damage, regen etc...

And also in Q3 there is a 'insta-unlagged' mod that makes everyone play as if their ping was zero, so even if you have a 300 ping and you shoot someone thats in your crosshair, you will register the kill. Would be good for us Aussies to have a competitive disintegration game overseas [img]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I'll keep thinking........... :P
