Real multiplayer descent is hectic. I used to think that CoD multiplayer was hectic with you dying around every corner, but Descent takes it to the next level. I didn't even play multiplayer until about 4 years ago on Rebirth, but even then, it's very sparingly, far and between that I play it. Needless to say, I'm not so good lo. I'm hoping we can get that awesome feel here at SolC. I personally haven't been able to duke it out with other people on here yet, but the physics fit like a glove.

Oh, the few test matches I had with our devs were hectic as crazy. AND fun (which I can't say of CoD).

I haven't been able to play with more than three but I won't really be able to judge how well the multiplayer plays 'till I can set my controls to what I normally use for 6dof. Right now I constantly die. Quite often accidentally and messily.
At least I have a good framerate for the most part. :D

Hah! Same thing here when I'm testing the map. I have a very unorthodox control scheme, but I've used it ever since I was young.

Guys, let me know those control schemes and I might put some of them in as templates when I do input customization!

Lol you probably won't want to know mine. I'm pretty sure my dad and I are the only ones who use it since he came up with his controls himself back in the 90s lol
