    Hi guys,

    I got the UT2004 demo last week, and have thoroughly enjoyed playing online. I have upgraded to 2MB broadband, and this is the first time I have experienced online play that is as smooth as playing offline.

    This prompted me to order the full game from play.com (£17.99) and it arrived this morning. I haven't had chance to play it yet, as I am at work from 9:00 - 5:30 but am looking forward to getting home and playing.

    I was wondering if anyone on here is playing this, and can recommend a good server(s) to use? I am not a hardcore games player, but will be dedicating a fair few hours a week to this game, and would like to get some regular games organised. Is this possible, and would anyone on here like to join me?

    Cheers

    Rob

    Yeah I have just picked this up from play myself, they I pre-ordered it but they dident send it out for the release date,so I cancelled but they then sent everyone a £2 voucher for the delay who pre-ordered it, so I reordered it 2 quid cheaper :)!!!

    Its very good, much better than the poor UT2003, and it has Facing Worlds, the best map ever created in the original UT...hell yeah...

    I've had a quick blast on the demo too, and really enjoy it - but I'm not really a fan of PC gaming (small screen, fidly controls etc).

    I am really hoping this comes out on the Xbox - I still really enjoy Unreal Tournament on the Xbox.

    Cool.. I have not played this in a while.. I did have my own server but due to my limited upstream bandwidth it cold only host 7 players.

    I'll try and get on with you guys soon.. but I warn you I am god awful at this :)

    The issue with slow loading can be sorted.. check your option setting and on one of the pages there is something about pre-loading character.. make sure this is off.

    Usually on as Scarecrow.

    Matt

    Piero,

    Drop me a PM and we can sort something out if you want to have a game on my server are you on MSN?

    As I said above we are a friendly bunch and although its slightly misleading we are not a clan.We have about 30 active members and some really good players so if you need help anyone of them will show you some tips and stuff.

    We are not a bunch of kids either the age group ranges from 14 to 40ish :eek: LOL(mostly at the higher age range if the truth is known)

    Steve

    Thanks for the invite Steve - once I have full game (just playing demo at the moment) and have had a little practice I will pass by your server for a game.
