View Full Version : Multiplayer modes?

06-02-2001, 12:58 AM
It's fairly safe to say that there will be a Deathmatch (team and FFA) and Capture the [?something?] modes, but what else? I'd like to see something Force Power oriented "Jedi Duel" style. I can't really think of anything good that i would like to see besides a Red Rover type game where a players death switches them to the team of their killer. Simple but fun, could be a blast with 3+ teams. Also mabye some inventive Capture the flag maps, with mabye 2 flags and 2 capture points for added gameplay.

for god's sake include an optional "grapple" type weapon in multiplayer mode

Also, will JK2 be on the zone. The zone is laggy and unneccasary, but UNPARRALED in community.

What's everyone's thoughts on multi-modes?

Modes that I would like to see:

Standard Singleplayer Mode
Cooperative Singleplayer Mode
Standard Deathmatch Mode
Capture the Flag Mode(Similar to JK's Challenge @ Nar Shaddaa)
Domination Mode(Similar to UT)
Jailbreak Mode(Similar to Q2)
Smear the ????? Mode(Similar to Holywars in Q2)
Rocket Arena Mode(Similar to UT and Q3)
Rail/Sniper Arena Mode(Similar to Q2)
Lightsaber Dueling Mode(Similar to Rune)
Hand-2-Hand Combat Mode
Newbie Tutorial(similar to what we see in Tomb Raider and UT)

I too would like to see some available server-side options such as:

Enable/Disable Grapple-Hook
Enable/Disable Jetpack

I've never been a big fan of force-levels like F3, but I suppose there are people out there that like it, and I guess the more options the better. Maybe having F0-8 like we did in JK?

Capture the wookie?

I don't know why, it just sounds funny....

reactor..... i think you pretty much said everything i want to say.....

but i'd also like a specific jedi-saber area. where 2 people battle and every watches.

I just hope raven take note of all the good points everyone are making!

That's an interesting idea. It could be like Rocket Arena, but with Sabers instead. It could be 1v1 or teamVteam(depending on server settings), and while 2 guys are dueling, the other players spectate until it's their turn to duel, which would be after one player dies. They could even have multiple teams.

The teamplay aspect of JK2, is what I'm waiting for. I'm a huge fan of anything that involves teamwork. CTF, Domination and TeamDM are great, along with plenty of others. Jailbreak is just an ingenious mod.

My vote is for "Jedi Arena," similar to Rocket Arena for Quake3 where players duel to the death. If they are killed, they go back in line to wait their turn and fight again. Both sabers only and guns modes. 1 v 1 and team v team.

Also I'd like an "Escort/Assassinate the Ambasssador" mode, similar to 'Hunted' in Half-Life's Team Fortress Classic. The Defenders (Jedis) must escort the Ambassador to an escape point, and the Assassins (Imperial Commandos) must prevent this from happening.

A "Sequencer Assault" mode would be fun. One team of commandos must plant and detonate a sequencer, while the opposing commando team must eliminate the bomb squad. (E.g., Counterstrike bombing missions.)

Now, Archie, there's an idea.

There could be that "assasinate JJB" thing, except it's capture the queen/president/ruler. And then you can play different levels, like Kasyyk(sp?), land of the wookies, and capture the wookie leader; Naboo, capture the queen; etc.

But here's the catch: New Republic Security. Different levels of difficulty change the number of wookies(for Kashyyk) and their weapons. And the longer it takes you to capture the leader, the more (heavily armed) New Republic Security comes in. They come in more quickly on hard than on easy.

Then, after you captured the leader, you would have to keep her from the other teams, and the wookies. The wookies would be tougher to take care of than, say, the Nubian or the Sullustians.

You could make more and more different levels, for different worlds, or the same worlds yet redesigning the palaces, which you would have to take over.

Wiluf is bringing back some of the info we got from Stephen Shaw in an interview with a gaming site back in September or October last year before Obi-Wan was canceled in November. I'm for the same thing Wiluf is. I would also like to add:

Kill the Jar Jar! - A mode where the only purpose is to kill the Jar Jar. There are no teams. Just one person who gets the unlucky fate of being Jar Jar, and everyone else gets to shoot madly at that person and try to exterminate them.

these are all fun, but can anyone think of anything original ;)

I was sorta original, wasn't I?[/indignant voice]

I would like "Kill the Jar Jar" as above said, and i think the devs at raven also would like!? ;)
Do you think George would be afraid?
