Oh god.. you know what I want? Team\class based CTF for this game... complete with lots of objects to interact with (and use as defenses).

Imagine being able to set up large obstacles in your flag room to make it hard for people to get in. The downside would be that it would give them potentially devestating ammunition for their gravity gun.

Itd have to be based on the rebel\combine fight though. So you could use those cool mines, and maybe toss some manhacks as a defense. Or set up those automated turrets.

This sounds like Half-Life 2 Fortress... I reaaaalllllyyy hope someone makes this. Im sure a lot of the work will be done already with the release of HL2DM though, so it probably wont take long for a Team Fortress version to show up.

I cant wait

Or even better, having to carry the flag with the grav gun. This would also allow for passing the flag between each other.

WOW! Its pretty good but I really think it would be better as a team death match and I hope there working on that. Great, great potential if they transfer this over to TDM. Servers are not dedicated yet so there pretty laggy. You can do pretty much everything from the game including pushing the cars with the gravity gun and the blood is nice.

I can't even join a freaking server... this really sucks.

Also... I think Team DM IS in... I think I saw a server that said that... and when I created a server (to test the maps) I saw a team option.

Awesome its out, howver i cant download the 30mb.

You would think if they would distrubuit it though high speed netowrks such as Fileplanet and FileShack they could get it to the people faster. However that clearly isnt the best option.

I belive they should ask the warez community on tips on how to distrubit files.
