We have a lot in common (myself and this community) it seems when it comes down to game play decisions and passion.

PS: The reason I started my podcasts and shows is to promote change against the watered down systems we have in most modern day FPS.
"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"

Thats what happens when you have blockbuster titles. You are emulated because you were successful. We have seen that with more than just modern fps games. It is like that car commercial that talks about how great awards are, but then they talk about how they can also hold you back from progressing and setting new standards.

To each his own =)

Quake was quite possibly the most fun to watch and best esport of its time... I wish the scene held out longer =( - Like I said, I still play regularly.

As far as TFC is concerned, I loved it pre-steam and still love the memories but my choice to stick with 1.6 took a lot of time, not leaving much for my 'fun' games =(

whisenhunt sounds legit. He'll do good things for the game even though some of you are too myopic to realize it.

Ah yes, the CS:GO guy. I knew I'd come across his name before.

Thank you for contributing to the thread.
It's not jealously, but there's certainly a whole bunch of irrational moaning going on in this here thread. We have a tendency of spewing premature whine from a position of conjecture and ignorance.

Personally, I welcome our new "Weapons Feedback Adviser".

Edit: Holy crap this thread's moving fast. I started typing this just before P0intman made himself look silly.

Edit II: But seriously guys, must we make ourselves look like utter assholes to all outsiders? We're making MOBA communities look warm and welcoming right now...

If you watch the videos linked it might elaborate, but "complexity" i think sums it up.

I have to admit, it's nice that he is posting here - I feel bad that many people have came out of the woodwork to degrade him before 24 hours are up. But, it is with good concern they have - so it's not too difficult to understand where they are coming from. But I digress


Welcome and hope to see you doing cool stuff in the future.

Wow man, what a rough ass way to be "welcomed" into the community - People who know nothing about you talking shit and crying about how worried they are.

Seriously guys, the game is way too far along in development for one person to come in and suddenly change everything. It sounds to me like he's been brought on to help tweak it to perfection.

Yeah, I for one am really fucking happy that they hired a guy who knows his shit SPECIFICALLY to make the weapons feel awesome. Good move, SOE. Good move.

Hey Whisenhunt, just curious if you played PS1, what faction, what was your favorite weapons/vehicles?

I wonder if bunny hopping is back on the agenda.

Bunny hopping was great. It was one thing to be able to do it, a whole other to actually use it and kill people. It was one of those fun exploits, and I never looked at it like traditional cheating because it was a game engine bug.

The best kind of bug. Imagine GunZ without k-style...

Hmm, I think I just formulated a question for that AMA.

I wonder about the same thing as well. If he is being brought in to tweak things, I think that at least a bit of experience with the original would be a good thing. It's hard to know where you're going, if you don't know where you're coming from.

Apparently they're making gunz 2 and stripping out most of the kystle.

Grats on the job man! I played CS:S pretty competitively as well. I would love for that visceral feeling to translate to my all time joy, Planetside.
