meh, I liked DoD, but until VALVe release the real SDK for it theres gonna be no good custom maps, and I dont like the ones they've got atm, and the round times are too long, gets very repetative :(

the reason is alot of ppl who played the original dod r very very dissappointed with the source version as they have completly changed the gameplay its now more like a ww2 death match which is a shame. but alot of ppl felt this way when css was first released i'm quite sure after a few updates and when the sdk is released there will b alot more ppl playing.

ya but no point in ukcs supporting a server that isn't getting used. Even if that applies to all servers.

true but with a game with so few players and very almost no good maps it takes time to build up a player base

I'm sure once Valve release more content for the game it will start to become more popular. I read a review in a pc magazine, they gave it 85%. They also said they would have given it another 5-10% if there were more maps etc. Just give it time :)

Its only just begun. Don't write it off yet.
I'm sure the original UKCS took time to build up also, and it wasn't a completly new game then either.

The DoD team have worked very hard to screw up this release, and they succeded with flying colours.
They release a DEDICATED multiplayer game .......... with only 4 maps.
They dont accept credit cards payment, because they cant be arsed to fix their website.
They insist on carving the game down to a 32 player game, to hell with what the customers want, and after 2 weeks they still cant be arsed to comment on THAT either.

I now removed steam completely from my PC, valve disgusts me, I would rather let my kid play house with michael jackson, than put up with the stupidity and ignorant arrogance the steam team display .

It would be a good idea for valve to give people a 1 week free trial of the game also they could sell it as a single add-on in the shops so people without a credit card can buy it

You can buy counterstrike source for £7.99 on play.com and you get Day of Defeat Source with that.

It is in shops, but probably a little more around the £20.00 mark.
