I think the real reason you have not played latly has something to do with DAoC
I defently do not play as much as I used to either. Uraban Terror is almost as fun but has no bombs or Hostages.
Tactical-ops for unreal is cool but there web site is not there anymore It had hostages, bombs, and objevtives. It was cool if you shot by a hostage they would screem and run in this one map I played. i did not like the buy memu though I had to use the mouse
