If i may say, without any insight as to what about the gameplay you dislike your comment would be invalid. The mod is still in that trial and error phase and if you could supply what exactly about it you dislike you may stand a chance of helping turn the mod into "an amazing trench game"

Great beta and this is going to be a great mod when it's all fixed. It would be nice have a CoD-style slight zoom when using iron sights, and if possible a better command queuing system, so that you can easily sprint from ironsights and reload back to ironsights etc, but i don't know how hard that is...

Some of the controls don't really work in unison with each other(going from one action directly to another) but overall i really liked the style of the mod. it ran well on my mac, had to lower the graphics a bit but its expected for me i suppose. I didnt find myself in an unbalance while i played, my first time and i got quite a few kills. fun mod :)

Unfortunately this mod isn´t what I expected it to be. There are several issues like incorrect ammo counters (SMLE has 10 instead of 6 rounds i.e.), messed up iron sights (MG 08/15 is nearly useless), ugly maps (some don´t even look like WW1-maps, ebcause they´re too green and not destroyed enough), ugly models (G98´s rear sight is way too big and the SMLE sight´s aren´t correctly alinged), historical innaccuracies (German helmets look moer like M35 than M1916 helmets, i.e. they lack those little "spikes" etc.) and gameplay flaws and bugs.
On the other hand I can see potential in this mod. Polish it up, fix bugs and we´ll maybe have a good mod in the coming months. But right now it just feels like WW1-deathmatch than a trench-centred WW1-game. I hope this comment won´t be marked as spam, but rather be seen as constructive criticism that can help making this mod better.
Best regards, hOMEr_jAy, TT vet and former TT beta tester.

I like the *beta* and the ironsites makes it an automatic +1 in my book too! Especially unique and innovative is the separate bind to work the bolt on the rifles. I like this a LOT... it feels much more realistic than the "click once to fire, click a second time to work the bolt" used in other shooters.

I do think it is way too easy to base-r***! Gas or bullets, once you get close enough to the enemy spawn it's easy to keep them down and dead.

I wish you would consider integrating something like Mumble for VoIP! I know it seems like it would be a lot of work, especially with VoIP already supported by the engine, but with it's positional audio it would take "realistic" voice communication completely over the top!

Nice work! Tracking and looking forward to future releases!

Yeah i agree with the grenade stuff, But put COD style iron sight w/ some Renegade style reloading.

Add like some airfields and barracks With WW1 and CnC Renegade styles,gameplay, etc.

But lower the graphics for us PC/ COMPAQS user's , and or like add some rocket launchers from ww1 and etc.

I know how hard it is But hey aleast its still trial and error phase?

It wont hurt to try this in like a beta/demo version?

Amazing mod loved it only problem I have with it are the griefers >.<

Was balanced very well loved the gameplay. The gas and artillery were very good ideas. Really liked how when you put the gas masks on it muffled peoples voices.

The only suggestion i have is when you say a voice command have it pop up in the text chat. (ex. <voice>player: Gas!)

Been enjoying this. I have a few little niggles, but otherwise this a really fun mod. It can already get pretty atmospheric. The arty explosions are perfect in my opinion, and striding through gas with your gas mask on makes you feel like a total badass.

Great mod, needs a little polishing,but I know it's still in development. The machine gunner needs a better animation for setting his gun down, also he needs a trench knife.

Nice mod, I played it for most of the day. Has lots of issues, but ok - it's a beta.

I wish this wasn't on Source, because terrain is sometimes glitchy, people are shooting through walls (from the inside, just their barrel is sticking out) and all the surfaces are flat and ugly. This is just the worst engine still available.

The game is good, but if it was on UDK (or any other engine, actually) it would be better.

Source is a great engine that is ever changing, some of the best mods and games out there right now are on the source engine. Source has plenty of tutorials, great communities, lots of support from the creators, plenty of third party modding tools that come with (or can be downloaded) support to export to source.

Source might be old but its still gold
