Aw, I was getting used to the Defiler.
Nice. Let's see if they can make creepers less annoying. And make better maps.
Did I read "less retarded achievements"? WHYYYYYY?!?!?!

Interesting i suppose but it would seem its run by those bunch who also ran NS, and i think their reputation is still quite... Well known, if anything. It wouldnt suprise me if their awful habits continue to this day, considering their past i've read about more or less...

Ah well personally i find that all the new classes people think of fall to one or more of the below unwanted caragories:
-Messes up the Range vs Melee aspect in any way which the original classes use.
-Over or Underpowered.
-Being more or less a sort of clone to the original classes, thus kind of unneeded.
-Have highly abusable ideas (aka invisibility gone wrong, and used to troll camp or such).
Cant think of more strangely, but NS had plenty of horrible ideas and pretty much did all of the above, except maybe the 3rd one, they tried so hard it just broke number 1 instead.

And more often then not the Original classes tend to get edited into something overly gimped compared to how they used to operate, in which you might as well not use any classes and make your own class-based mod!
Ah well, probaly wont end up liking this very much like just about any other GVH modification. Just got different tasted then most of the people it would seem, i'll just personally blame it on lack of quality taste. Oh how i wish good ol regular GVH became popular again instead...

Of course i did read in there they might not do the same mistakes again, but still, its THEM, time will only tell.

I think you can join servers if you get Freedoom. But It still would look better with Doom II.

It's only $5 on steam. Is $5 really that much?

Hm, while 5 dollars/euro's isnt that much i suppose some people do have trouble paying online, as not everyone has a credit card and aside from that the only other decent way i know of is via bank or via a service that can be paid via one's bank account.

Perhaps if you own steam you could trade items for that, or arrange other kinds of deals, or just have a good friend get you the game.
And if you can pay stuff via bank things like iDeal (no clue if its available outside Europe) i found buying those voucher thingies quite handy, which are basically digital Visa cards to be used like an regular Visa credit card but have whatever charge you put on it, basically an expendable gift card of sorts: https://www.3v.ie/
Though it only works in either Spain, UK Canada and (the) Netherlands, i believe. Also makes me wonder if they accept any other usefull payment methods, though i do know they take payments from various banks.

And i can only imagine how ugly Doomguy might look in FreeDoom, would look so completely out of synch with the custom marine sprites GVH has incoporated.

I don't quite have a credit card, that's why. If I did though, I'd buy the doom everything.

Unless the "not happening" thing is a joke.

Well its certainly a 'too good to be true' type of situation in the first place, not like THESE people would remotely improve their behaviour regarding criticism.

But i suppose its no guarantee its a joke given that it isnt posted on April 1st, and the original poster didnt call April Fools either. Most April Fools jokes also tend to be a bit more obvious, or even sarcastic, and no obvious or sarcastic traits to be seen on the initial post of such kind.

But i guess time will tell if its an elaborate joke or they might actually show a slim amount humanity and reasoning.

Well, they posted who's in the current team.
Quote from: "Ivan"
=== Current Team ===

Developers: BlueWizard, Ivan
Testers: Ammar, Anannyo, Darkener, Mobius, Mudkipper, and Slyfox. (Note all these players have been selected since they've been playing since first GvH)

Ammar? Are they removing grenades or something? JK, JK, hehehe...
