They should have released Europe at the start instead of the big, boring and dusty African maps.

Great fun, I'm having no steering lag, just make sure you play on a low-ping server.

Fantastic mod - 10!

The game works well with 24 players though - I wouldn't agree with the 18 player limit.

Yes an updated review needs to be written - and thanks to the way comments are ordered, no one will see this.

The gameplay to me is nothing new, but I give the mod credit for being very well presented.

Hang on... thats it? Pretty crappy selection of mods. No one even plays AOC or ES. One of the videos up there hasn't even been properly uploaded. Last year's awards were much better :-(

This mod has greatly improved since 1.2, gameplay is much funner and team-oriented. This is my favourite mod atm behind Empires!

This is why I dislike V4 so much. All the decent features are gone and the site is much more difficult to navigate.

As an earlier poster said below, the success of a released mod comes down to how well it designed and marketed to players. There are so many high quality games available today, both professional and mod-based, that your game really needs to stand out.

There are ever-expanding opportunities to promote your mod - websites like MODDB, on Steam (if on HL2), in magazines and other gaming websites.

Also, I think this year has been difficult for mod makers. There have been so many high-profile games taking player's attentions. I think 2008 will be a much better year for mods as a lot of big projects are refined and released.

Too often I think mods are designed by highly technical people (mod makers) who forget that whilst the majority of their potential audience might be heavy gamers, few will be mod makers themselves. They see the project as 'their own' and refuse to budge on issues which would give the mod a broader appeal. I know this from first hand experience, working as a PR leader on a BF2 mod for about a year, and from playing a lot of mods.

A good recent example I think is the Forgotten Hope 2 mod for Battlefield 2. The game has been hugely hyped, but failed to live up to a lot of people's expectations, with the number of active players rather small. I believe the team failed by blindly trying to recreate their original game despite the fact that people wanted a WW2 mod for BF2.

This is definitely my favourite HL2 mod, and mod of the year, in terms of pure entertainment. It lacks the style of Dystopia, and the period coolness of PVKII or BG, but is still heaps of fun on the nearly 50 player Mittoes server. Vote!

Great mod, just wish there were some better (20+ players) servers, or even that Texas 20p server that was up the other day.
