That's how it starts:
This is a very detailed documentation about the skill levels in ET put together by GF.ggsnake and GF.MirRo from the German RTCW clan Game Foundation. After a test period of five hours they analysed almost every level and learned how to increase them.
Every of the five classes has Battle Sense and Light Weapons, and of course their class specific weapons.
The following pictures show nice spots where you can plant the mines. You can either use them to stop a tank or to blow up allies soldiers. Mines are very helpful especially on the Testmap of the Demoversion.
But don't forget your team can only place a maximum of 10 mines!
Here's a excerpt of the official Activision announcement:
This is a TEST and players may find compatibility and performance issues that will be addressed before the final release. The purpose of this test is to report these issues so that we can address them prior to the release of the game. Players should also understand that the system requirements listed below are very close to what we expect in the release version.
Of course ET.com will also offer a download. Certainly still today. I still brood over how to manage the high traffic.
Until then try downloading it at Fileplanet.com. Most other sources couldn't manage the high traffic and are down.
However not everything is that perfect. A mate complained about the bad movement. ET is slower than RTCW: grenades and jumps reminded me of Battlefield. But it's not that slow.
Also the Testmap, like MP_Beach in RTCW, is advantageous for the Axis team. With the possibility of planting landmines as an engineer (what I really like to do) you can secure most entries and camp in the wallarea. Maybe it won't be that unbelanced with bigger teams.
With Panzerfaust and Flamethrower still alive there comes another lamer-weapon: the Mobile MG42. I immediately thought of the FNMAG (cheater-weapon) in DF:LW. On large plain areas you have no chance to stay alive if the enemy saw you. And if the enemy finds a nice spot where he can lay down, too, it is very difficult to get him away from there.
All in all you can say that ET will be a mix of RTCW with its mods and a longer-distance game like DF or Battlefield. Considering that Enemy Territory comes out as a standalone game for FREE, it's goint to have great chances to find a much bigger community than RTCW at the moment. So stay tuned!
