Decadence is a 2 vs. 2 multiplayer first-person shooter that combines the personal relationship to characters and surroundings of single-player games with an adrenaline filled multiplayer experience. Decadence pits two teams against each other in a fight over territorial control. Each map is designed in small stages to offer more compact and action filled gameplay that puts focus on teamwork.

The installer doesn't know where to put the mod! This is a very nasty error because the mod's folder name is used as it's identifier - if two people guess at it differently they'll be incompatible with each other.

Presumably the name is decadence...but is the first letter upper or lower case?

I'm currently running 6 servers on my machine. I can see around 20 servers running. We had over 30 servers running yesterday. You server browser might be acting up?

I played it.
Its very good!

But 4 Players only? Thats really too little!
Thats the reason people will play it just sometimes cause theres not really teambased action.

Its tactical, yeah... But so the replayability is not high.

Oh that is so fun. I just wish servers were limited to four players, when spectators join I always have to fight to get a position as a character.

There needs to be a way to kick someone if they are TKing a lot.

Currently there's no way, and it's just frustrating if there's a lot of people spectating.

Really neat mod. The level design and art direction is fantastic, My only complaint is that the respawn timer is a little long for only two people on each team. You die and then like 15 secs later you spawn, and the water node is already 1/4 captured by the other team.

I think that's kinda the point, you need to actually get something out of killing the enemy, in this case it's ~20s extra to take over the node.

Well. My 2 cents:
* 2vs2 is a joke. Period.
NO tactics. NOT in this game.
* If both members of the team are wiped out, another are free to get from 5 to 10% of capture right away for free.
(Introduce instant respawn then both are dead)
* If one team camps CP they're almost immortal. Health regen just adds to this.
Especially and deathrow map. The team which gets to CP first, wins.

This could be solved by adding more players. 2 campers and 1 respawning vs 3 attacking, for example, got REAL chance of dying while shamelessly camping CP.

Also there should be some boost for loosing team. Then one team is camping the whole game and they got like 80% of capture, another team captures the point(while loosing teammate for example) and they got NOTHING. One man could get maybe 10% of capture before wipe and point camping of the other team.

Maps are nicely done. Thats all. Anything else is... well... not as good.

For now - UNINSTALL.

Think. Improve. Get players.

Thank you.

I agree almost u said.

2 vs 2 really boring, this is not the way to let player team up.
Weapons, not much to say, failed.

Decadence need a lot improvement for gameplay.

But, I like the art style, it catch my eye.

IMO it's really great as it is, I find many chances to deploy different tactics and so on. I think it'd be interesting to see how 3v3 would play out though. What I like about this is that it's so easy to stay organized since you're so few, maybe 3 on each team is the perfect balance.

Thats cos mod is unbalanced and poorly supported.
They locked it from open beta. Now get that you deserve in "release".

Because you can only have up to 4 people on a team not many people can jump in and play. Since everyone can't play alot of people myself included just uninstall the mod. The mod needs more players at least 4 vs 4 or more and more weapon variety.

I love the fact there are so few players.. it's really not fun to play when there are like 50 players on the same server.

you last like 5 seconds in those servers.

But just one thing that i hate so much about this game.. the burst fire the scout has.. JESUS CHRIST it's so annoying. It's like ruining the spirit of the game. Seriously, it's horrible. The burstfire.

Yeah and the heavy gunner has the most ridiculous recoil effect ever.

It's just not fun. It barely requires aiming skill in this game.

Well it depends on server. I've played on 2 servers(on of them is my own) there recoil is ok.
On third one gun was just flying up high while shooting. Like I'm some 5 year old kid with minigun.

well great game, but pleasssseeee you need more characters and a bigger arsenal.
i searched you forums, but their was not even one entry about that.
diffrent characters and weapons would make it more tactical. maybe you could implementate the arsenal with the achievements (steam)...

PS.: but the first release does what it should ;) i just wanted to post my suggestions here :P
