So we want to bring Team Fortress to AvP2. It shouldn't be too difficult, all of the weapons we need are already in AvP2, and configuring armor and run speeds and whatnot isn't too hard. What we need, however, is input on how this should go down, and modders to make the more difficult things happen, like possibly adding new weapons and more importantly, new GAME MODES, like Capture the Flag or Assault, things that teams do that aren't Team Deathmatch. However, this is AvP2 Fortress, so everything should have an AvP2 twist to it. Like Preds and Aliens on the teams realistically, but not whorishly. No Predator rocket-launcher guys, for example, but a Predator as the Spy, a class that's supposed to cloak and primarily use a knife anyway. -- SMID
We had a second test, using basically the same netcode. The article follows up on that test.

That's two weeks in a row I manage to write the article fairly late. I know, bad Herr_Alien, bad!
Although in the video file the netcode behaves failry well, I personally was not happy with the game. Maybe because I didn't play fortress-like (dropping sentries, ammo and health). Most likely because my ass was handed to me in more than just one ocasion:
For this week, we'll focus more on lobbies: the cure for spawn killing and maybe, an alternative for delayed spawning. More details to come.
