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.

Blame the modders, not the tools.

Source is as capable as Unreal.

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

a spawn protecition would be nice, there are too many teamkillers throwing grenades in the first minutes......i hate these guys, without them the mod would be greater...


btw:it's a great mod, good gameplay and it has the right kill/death ratio for the 1st world war^^

I tried it out and I really enjoyed it :D.

Somethings need some tweaking like some of the animations like the machine gun deployment animation but other than that, it's really good :)

Edit: I didn't get tked like some people have experienced, although, I was accidentally killed by friendly artillery but I guess that's what supposed to be like I suppose UNLESS it was on purpose :)
