Mod of the Year 2010 Editors Choice - Best Multiplayer Mod

Posted by Henley on Dec 20th, 2010
Article

2010 was a great year for multiplayer focused mod players, with many new exciting projects and new mp expansions it was a good set of releases. To be nominated for an award in Best Multiplayer Mod projects need to have been updated significantly during 2010 and be multiplayer focused. Here are the Editors of ModDB's and our judges top selection of 2010.



Eastern FrontEastern Front
is a mod for Company of Heroes. Following the ethos of mimicking a Relic Entertainment expansion pack, Eastern Front has succeeded in adding a full Soviet faction packed with unique and exciting units to the existing armies - a feat never before achieved in the Company of Heroes world.


Forgotten Hope 2Forgotten Hope 2
is a mod for Battlefield 2. It aims to portrait World War II in a way no other multi-player first person shooter have done before, with a focus on historical accuracy and tactical gameplay. You can play as represent many different countries as a soldier and utilize an extensive arsenal of weapons and vehicles that accurately portrait the assets available in the real battles.

GraviNULLGraviNULL
the player will be put in a Zero Gravity situation with no means to move around besides using a modified gravity gun with a "grapple" function. This function can attach to the numerous mines floating about the map and fling the player around, the player must kill the enemies by punting the mines at enemies.

Firearms: SourceFirearms: Source
is a team based first person shooter. Firearms: Source brings the best aspects of Firearms to the Source engine, and then takes them a step further. You'll see a host of familiar weapons and maps, but you'll find the streamlined game play to be faster, focusing on aggressive, skilled play. From nearly the moment you spawn you can expect to be engaged in furious action.

Trouble in Terrorist TownTrouble in Terrorist Town
is a Fretta-compatible gamemode for (and included in) Garry's Mod 10. It's about a group of Terrorists who have traitors among them, out to kill everyone who is not a traitor. A small number of players (typically 25%) is selected as Traitors, who have to kill all the Innocent players (ie. the rest). Those innocents know there are people out to get them, and they're in the majority, but they do not know who the traitors are.

Although I deeply appriciate the effort of the Eastern Front team and their strength to keep going after everything that happened, I do think Blitzkrieg deserves the award.
I spent a couple of days on Eastern Front loving it, but the amount of content added in Blitzkrieg is simply staggering, a merging of the two would be a dream come true though...

Well, in a certain way I'm still happy they won, R.I.P Loran Korn

Project reality isn't nominee because it is NOT one of the best MP mods.
It was few years ago, but now it's just mess of really weird rules restricting gameplay.

Yeah I bet these mods were like "Oh we want to make a multiplayer mod but just can't think of anything interesting, so we just go with the old war scenario" Had probably nothing to do with passion for the subject or historical interest...

I think Blitzkrieg isn't a nominee because It doesn't really add something new to Company of Heroes. For me the Blitzkrieg Mod only sets the normal CoH units into a other order and of course It's realistic (that's why I'm playing it sometimes).

I am a little shocked to see Forgoten Hope 2 but not Project Reality, these are the 2 best mods for Battlefield 2... and I personally think the later is better than the first, PR is even in the modding hall of fame.

I know, but i used it as an example, Eastern front is good, but in MP the intensity does not reaches Blitzkrieg, and Forgotten Hope 2 i cant even say it, those forgotten honour tournaments are the best you can have, but again, its a matter of opinion, and EF already was on top 10 last year, and it won best developer

All good mods up there, and EF certainly earned it IMO.
