    *sob* Action UT says goodbye

    Development on Action Unreal Tournament has terminated and the Action brand has been put on a long term hiatus.

    The decision was reached last week during discussions with leading members of Akimbo Team Productions and the AUT development team agreed with all their conclusions. There are simply not enough people playing the mod to warrant another 18 months of daily commitment to the project. Furthermore, the team feel it is in the best interest to put the Action franchise on hold indefinitely and no other team will be given permission to take over development or use the Action name in future mod projects.
    Damn -= that's pretty sad - but not that surprising. I did enjoy it, but I think UT2004 has awful netcode and this has had a spill-on effect for mod-makers like these guys.

    i never got just WHY more people didn't play Action - it was one of the most popular quake 2 mods, but nobody wanted to give AHL, with its impressive dives & high fun-factor, the time of day.

    it's strange - just launched ahl and had about 5 people join my server in minutes - still loads of fun. it's just fast and fun - whereas load times on aut are just too high. sad to see it go all the same -
    imho ut04 is just too pretty, too much style, not enough speed.

    it's not as if it's some tiny unknown mod either, it's in the list on steam if you click 'browse games'
