RTCW = Return To Castle Wolfenstein
ET = Enemy Territory

Well been playing ET for 2,5 years now, i also do wars on CB (clanbase). ET is a very fast game (nothing compared to BF2 or CS). The game started as an Addon for RTCW but that plan never got thru so the put it free on the net, Now it's turned out to be a HUGH succes and around 40.000 people play it now. When it first came out the game only had 6 maps, but do'n't worry there are about 200 maps now and around 30 official war maps of CB. You got 2 Teams (Axis: Germans and Allies) and mostly has to get a mission completed. So that means the Axis has to defend their objective (But in some maps it's the other way around).

You have 5 classes:
Medic - heals everybody with a syringe or med-packs
Engineer - repairs vechicals, plants dynamite, plants mines, defuse them, etc
Field Ops - Give ammo to every body thru ammo packs and calls for reinforcment (artillery and Airstrikes)
Soldier - Handles all the heavy weapons
Covert Ops - Can steal clothing from the enemy to look like them, and handles all sniping weapons

Now an also very good part of ET is trickjumping, maybe you have heard of it or not, but this is beacause ET is build on a Quake3 engine (original trickjumping comes from Q3). There are many maps for TJ and by now many people does TJ. But don't get to happy about it cause many of ET players can't even trickjump the simplest jumps. you've gotta have feeling for it and need to know the basic strafe and circle jump. I aint gonna explain that cause that cost to many time and you have tutorials maps for that.

When you install this game and play it you starting to think who plays this old sh**, well if it wouldn't be fun to play then there wouldn't be 40.000 players online and world cups

Nice Explaination. I do have to say, don't be put off by the graphics. The gameplay makes up for it.

Does anyone have any bandwidth they can spare? We could do with a server. Even though this isn't a popular game :/

I used to play ET constantly, my 3v3 team was #1 in the ladders on TWL for a couple months, and right before beta season we ended up disbanding. Now we all play WoW.

I still TJ every now and then, never got the SMP jump that you need to make to join them though. Oh and the key to tj'ing, it's all in the wrist

Good times.

another addict right here, i've played this since it first came out and rctw v1.0 was the first pc game i bought

like people have said it's nothing like bf2, in fact 2 guys working together could win pretty much any of the maps and in many cases 1 guy who can trickjump could also,but it's a fast paced shooter with hours of fun ,just beware of rambo meds

i play on *Shadow|Mod
ip: 85.144.41.248:27960

under either (Ww)wolf or *Shadow* Shaolin , any you guys are welcome to come play a few games
(it's a dutch based server but anyone in the uk should get 50-80 ping same as i do on a 1mb line)
