Simple... Slow Motion

Ever play UT? UT2003?
They both have this option.
Not a "Bullet Time" buttin like in Max Payne, but just another game option like Survival Mode.
This will just slow down the game.
Ive always found playing FPSs in slow motion is really fun. Awesome when you manage to kill everyone around you in mid-air, to finally land while everyone else is toppling over. So satisfying.

I guess you could speed up the game too with this option, but then a lag spike is all the worse.

Slow motion would be good for newbs and good for lag. If the server is kinda laggy, with slow motion on it doesnt really matter.

Imagine dropping down on a couple of guys, picking one off with your Barret and landing in a roll while switching to your LAW and turning around to take out the other guy. Its just so much more satisfying in slow motion. Plus it gives you time to type in "pwned" and "/piss".

No! Everyone would just use Barret cause you would never miss with everyone moving slow as snails.

Sounds like something out of the half life mod 'The Specialists' which is my favorite pc game.

3rd account is right why would u want slo mo if u had that u would have to remove barret and stuff and it would just plain suck >:|

Simple, Barret would be slower, with everything else. It would actually be easier for the non-Barrets. LAW would be slower than what it is now. Really slow. And it gives people a chance to kill the minigunners if they're not extremely lucky and are out of grenades.

I think it would be cool if the slow motion started when everyone is in air. That would look cool (of course as an option, and it would be cool only on small maps). Hmm?

Yes, god is right. :) Would also be cool when someone is near to score with a flag in ctf.

Or maybe some seconds AFTER the capture finished?

As long as it's an option and not over-used.. fine :)

Yeah, I forsee a few problems too ;)

yeah i dopn't think it would work

i don't understand this "slow motion when everyone is in air...?" does it stop the instant someone touches ground? does the server automatically trigger this?
