I have been playing in dm as Buprenorphine never used to play dm before I don't know why it is so fun now.  I was always a tdm player.  Anyway seems like a lot of newer players play dm just wondering where did you guys come from ?  How did you hear about q2 and these servers I feel like this game is an underground society now its really cool stuff !

I've always maintained that Quake II had the best FFA experience of the franchise, due to the pacing and *cough* weapon stay dmflag. It's difficult to evangelize FFA because it's generally looked down on in other games, sometimes for good reason.

A lot of its appeal for e at least is the inclusion of the single player power ups that most other games don't have. With those you can become very hard to kill indeed.

With a power shield and ammo pack,you can have 300 shields and 300 bullets for your chaingun,and with 2 red armours ,you can enjoy a state of...

IMO Q2 FFA was probably the most perfectly constructed DM experience of all time and it still occupies that position for me! The setting, the powerups and the weapons just FEEL right and it's just - the best fun you can have while gaming. ;)

Shoutbox isn't the place for rehashing this. Here's the thread about DM server spawn farthest from 2006/2007:

but that's *NOT what the DM server is supposed to cater to

It's not ideal for 1v1 situations, but that's what the DM server is supposed to cater to. Also, there are 7 other maps besides DM4 (actually 8 for the automatic mymap map between dm8 and dm1). I think there are more positives than negatives.

It happens to better players too. I know I've been in first, or second place, only to die and spawn right next to the other leading player multiple times in a row, and having to dodge rockets in a narrow corridor without any weapons myself (other than blaster).

It's not the best for 1v1 situation

I saw a clearly-new player earlier, and it spawned him like 3 or 4 times in a row right next to a better player. Instant death each time they spawned. I imagine that can be discouraging and frustrating, particularly when someone is trying to get a handle on the game. Spawn farthest would avoid this.

Might be interesting to code a hybrid spawn function that doesn't focus on "farthest" so much as avoiding the few most congested spawn points?
