    With regards to 3.0, they tell us development has already started and there is a large sneak peak on the site. There is a long list of features as well as some new media.

    I hope these new features will manage to elevate the game from mindnumbingly boring to something higher

    It's got the visuals, but if you can only play it for a week or two...

    This mod oozes with "mehness".
    Seriously, is this is the best the hl2 mod community has to offer?
    What happened to the good ol fun and innovative mods of hl 1?

    All mods on the Source engine take massive dedication to get to release. The mod scene is not short of innovative ideas, it's just that most of the people with the ideas either don't have the dedication or haven't got the management skills to bring them to fruition. Insurgency is 5 years in the making, just to put it in perspective.

    I think it is a realistic, though not innovative, and great game. Very fun to play in and the game tests your true skill. Crosshair in cs is for noob.

    We are trying our best to define what we want for gameplay. Sadly you cant just write a bunch of text and think it works. Its trial and error :] thats why we are a beta to find our groove :] Sorry if you think the mod is full of "mehness" :[

    I like the dedication and professionalism of the team alot. But the community is very elite sometimes and the gameplay is punishing. But my respects to them as always.

    I work in a game studio and even my coworkers haven't have the management skills to put together a mod in our free time. Many props to anyone who can and does work on a mod. Insurgency is definitely something I've been keeping my eyes on.

    :rolleyes:

    The "fun, innovative mods"?

    There were six or seven Half-life mods which tried amazingly new ideas. The rest were pretty standard shooter fare (as with today's HL2 mods). But that didn't stop all of them from being fun to play.

    Props to the Insurgency team. :thumbs:

    I don't know what version I played, but it was the first release I think. I didn't like it, not because it had bugs or anything, but because the gameplay wasn't my style. It was pretty polished. I guess I'd be willing to give it a try, but I doubt the core gameplay has changed that much. Kudos for the continuing support though.

    It's been said a few hundred times at the least but the mod needs to seriously address its gameplay
    I wish they would look at the objective teamplay centric based concepts and more realistic gamemodes in (the now dead sadly) Plan of Attack. Insurgency as it is is simply a fragtastic pretty but empty game - good for maybe the occasional 10 minute blast but not much more.

    change of engine

    Surprised nobody noticed it in their beta 3 changelog.
    They seem to be switching to the engine provided with the orange box.
    If that's so: is this a free engine or do we have to buy the orange box for playing Insurgency in the future ?
    I didn't buy the orange box, just TF2.
