Argh, it keeps crashing. I can't join any servers with hunted, too.

Well I finally got some real playing. I played crossover for about 30 minutes before everything starts getting extremely laggy and finally freezes. Great amount of fun though.

Excellent. I spent many a year in the tfc days and I must say that this is as similar to the real thing as I had hoped. I have to admit that I almost died when I heard tf2 was to be without conc nades. Luckily, you have saved the day. I am very impressed with the grenades, all of them. I have also heard people complaining about the models, but I find that they are very well done. The importance of the models is to make them unique enough that they stick out from each other, as there are 9 different ones. This game copes with that well. The fighting is fast paced as I had anticipated, although I had doubts of it being possible without destroying fps. I am glad to see this challenge was overcome as well. The levels are impressive to me, as they maintain the simplicity of the originals and don't add any unnecessary objects to detract from the fighting aspect of the game. Thank you very much for the release and I look forward to further experiences with the game.

Wow.

I've been playing as my fav class pyro mostly. It's insane how much the pryo has been beefed up. I mean, i was hoping that the pyro would at least get a little more dmg, but went beyond my hopes.

I poo pooed on HW guys and soldiers alike. I got killed mostly by snipers and sgs. It seems that now, pyros can be both played as offensive flag cappers or defensive...as opposed to being that annoying mosquito that even scouts can squash.

Very impressive, dev team, very impressive. I love the additions on the pyro.

I'm overjoyed with the release of Fortress Forever. So far, the game has been great. The graphics are really awesome. It's also a lot easier to rocket jump for some reason.

Hey Dr. Uuge. Did you try out the flame glide yet? aim your flamethrower down and jump around.

First impressions:

Not bad but I think I'll stick with TFC for now. FF is fun but there's just too many inconsistencies and balance issues that really stop it from being something I would play regularly.

For instance.

- Concs seem to be random. Most of the time I get them to work and I go flying how I want but some times it pushes me backwards or straight up into the air or just stops me on the spot

- Modes. Hunted mode isn't particularly fun. Not focussed enough and the rounds tend to be overly short, either because the civ escapes or he dies.

Push I don't like at all. classes don't get grenades when some classes are fairly dependant on them. Especially when engineers still get their turrets.

- Turrets, they were never this good. Going up against a turret with anything but soldier is likely to get you screwed now. One single turret prevented us from doing anything on push, even with soldiers.

- Snipers weren't this effective either. Sure, they were easy to use in TFC but FF sniper really takes the cake

- Heavy classes feel too fast at moving

---

Don't get me wrong. I do enjoy the game. Just these minor details that just makes it not nearly as fun to play as TFC. I certainly don't get that epic feeling after a chaotic round on FF that I do in TFC

The soldier is definitely not over-powered.

Awesome mod!!! Went beyond my expectations. I haven't experienced any lag or crashing glitches like others and think the game is great. Just a few things that stuck out for me:
One of the textures in ff_well where the roof meets the wall in the entrance was glitched... stupid thing to say, I know, but just stuck out to me.
The model for the shotgun (not the super-shotgun. I love that) is lacking. It looks really strange and the arms look very odd holding it.
In dustbowl, is defense supposed to get no frags or deaths? No matter how many times I killed or died, nothing showed up. It really bugged me when I thought I was doin' really well and hit TAB to reveal... 0 0.

Amazing job, devs.

Well I used to love to play soldier but WTF is this?

Very laggy delays, very weird double jump, and whats with the rockets going so slow? No more rocket jumping?

All in all, very laggy responses from all weapons and maps/models need fixing.

I wonder how that happened, actually. The last version of Dustbowl we tested didn't have that problem

Just played 2.5 Hours, and it's awesome - feels just right, but still new.
I'm pleased to find that my favourite class(engi) is still as much fun as before.
The most annoying thing must be the new spy gadgets, keeps messing with my turrets

Off to play some more..

Some of the negative comments remind of what Defrag said about releasing early.
