Default Is there any AS ever played these days?

It's depressing coming back and seeing that the situation has deteriorated even more than having boobedome's 80% race server being the primary (and often only) well played server, especially seeing as ONS seems to be all goo tanks and minotaurs and no bitchslap these days.

To be honest, I couldnt tell you the last time I actually fired up Ut AND played... I've reinstalled OS's MANY times and everytime I install the UT Collection pack deal/bundle and never play it. Ahhh, the days of old............................................... .................................................. ....

I play on the LDG assault server, which is full of n00bs (aren't they always?) but at least has some Assault going on. It has racing in the server's name, but they don't always get around to much of that...

I would also be interested in some good ol' Assault, never really got to play it online because of all the race and trial servers. And there are so many nice AS maps out there, especially from CBP and UCMP.

So if anyone knew a good server, I would be willing to join from time to time. Although my ping gets to "unplayable" when I play on US-servers, but D-jAy played once on a European server with me and had no lag at all…



And not all servers are about goofy vehicles these days, there are some in Europe that keep it more traditional.
Namely:
-Titan Onslaught in UK with a lot of classic hardcore maps and gameplay for the pros (you need to win 3 rounds to win a match, so it's possible to play more than an hour on a map).
-TCP in Netherlands, which have some more custom maps that are not so hardcore but also with mostly classic vehicles.
-Techcom in Czech Republic, with a wide variety of maps, some from )o(, some from TCP, some from Titan, some from DW, some from the interwebz and many modded that are unique to the server. Most popular European server.
-CEONSS in Germany, a Techcom clone without the maps that were made for Techcom and a lower population. Also uses a mix of maps from everywhere.

I miss AS quite a bit, but the Rush gametype in BC2 makes for a decent replacement
Seeing all the race-only and trials maps makes me a sad panda

Well, race maps aren't bad but the ones that require you to ride the wall to make it around turns and/or win it gets old

There are people on the AS server from time to time, but not that often. Most I've ever seen is 3 or 4 at the same time.

I used to jump on the Assault server hoping others would join but so many times the bots wouldn't even leave the core and I would be on defense and couldn't stay teamed switched so it was completely pointless. There was nothing to do. It makes it hard to get a game started.

I have seen this happen to others also. There was one time when three of us were in the game and all three were on defense with the offense bots doing nothing. Two of us tried to team switch to offense over and over and it kept putting us back on defense. We voted a new map and eventually started running into the same kind of problems and left. Is there a way around this in the game? This really has happened to me a lot.

I think it is. >> Need something to do 'sides HoN and waiting for L4D and TF2 to come out for this damn Mac since I quit WoW. I'll have to try those alternate servers in the mean time though.

I've been playing UT a couple of times recently, and I just pine for the good old days. ONS doesn't fill the void (its still quite fun though), and the ONS server is completely different to how the AS server was back in the day. The atmosphere is completely different. Thats what I miss most. I want to see a bunch of >10 )o(s and Server regulars posing for the final shot at the end of the map once again

If you AS losers arrange a date, I will bring my immense ONS and Freon skillz to the table.

I will be noobish beyond all imagination, but I will be a body.

I know there are at least 4 or 5 ex-AS addicts that regularly play at HoC, so we can advertise
it there as well.

Suggest keeping the map cycle list minimal since a lot of newer AS maps are NOT already uploaded to many ONS etc.. players.

Too bad a missed the heyday for this. I have fond memories of playing Assault in UT'99. Though I don't get these race maps.

I've found Bad Company 2s Rush gametype a decent alternative

Difficulty ranges from easy to 32-man-BenderRace-difficult

Sounds like everyone knows the "team" comes first moto(wish most of the fuckers I play L4D2 with did, lol). Excellent, no worries than . I'll be at the front of the pack smashing their defenses, than their confidence . Just stay bout 3 paces in front of me and everything else should fall into place . Ow ya, and on a race map,,,,,,, I drive .

Ahhhh, the thought of war begins to build some anticipation... Next time I check the forums, I'll prolly get a hardon! Beat it Sabel, this is no place for "some woman"
