if i start ET through steam, it gives me some punkbuster error about "handshaking" or something like that and disconnects. No such problem without steam...

I had that prob with the pb update 2-3 mos ago? The one where they installed services. It was a firewall deal for me. Maybe steam has its own pb services? Would seem odd. Might want to peak around and see if anything is blocked.

Played this game tonight for a few hours for the first time in a long time. I have to say that people are getting a hang of the maps... there was far more team-style strategy exhibited by both sides than last time I played (2 months ago.)

Did they change the XP values? People were getting huge scores.

I continue to enjoy this game more everyday.

Game Tags is (HP)Dionysus... true that people are begining to get the team concept more...although over the holiday's we got a rush of new players but thats cool more players to the community is good.

I like the 1.4 patch I guess the only real beef is you can sit in the MCP without getting killed otherwise its all good. For the Pilots well...thats another story.

So how are people getting like 6000XP? It seems like no one would be much higher than 600 before.

Other news, I'm getting a complete freeze on exit from ET:QW. Needs a reboot.

Six thousand? Is that in one campaign? I think I saw some servers advertising persistent XP so I'm wondering if you were on one of those. I assume that those servers save your XP for as long as you're connected so if you played long enough you could get that high.

That must be it. It was [BBA] or something like that. First I've heard of persistent XP.

Yeah, the highest XP for the last map of the round was 6.1k. lol

I like playing on the 32 squad teams... could really care less about a server being ranked. I am not 1337.

I find the 32 man servers to be a fking blast chaos everywhere lots of great players, and awesome gamesmakes for real great team play. Again totally disappointing.
