I found this handy PSA from the nuclear era explaining what S&D is for people who have never played it or only have a vague idea of what it is:

Nice vid. My only gripe is calling the CoD SnD the "original". :P

What's the console command to connect using IP? Or what is the server name to find in the list?

I would love to try this!

eta: Aha, found it in the unranked server list

You could have also clicked Thor's link to automatically connect you to the server.

Original in the sense that it was the first by that name, certainly not the first to feature those gameplay elements.

Moskeeto, I did, butit said something about not being supported (I had to choose a link to open it with).

I spent a couple of hours trying every map this afternoon, and even though it was pretty crap with me alone and 4 bots, this is going to be awesome!

Yes I also played it last night with bots but had a blast. Loved the warehouse map.

We usually play in the afternoon or evening. It's no fun with bots, we had some good 5v5s going last night which is what this game mode is perfectly suited for. I'm in the server right now with bots. Booooooo!

More people would show up if the mod were whitelisted. I think a certain group of people need to get on that asap.

Is no one else excited for this new mod? I think it's a refreshing new way to play the game. It's also perfect for people that want to run smaller servers. I hope this becomes popular enough so that we have a legitimately fun game mode to play with lower player counts. It's a blast playing just a 5v5 match.

One of the goals of search and destroy is to provide a game mode that doesn't need 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 people to run properly. I understand that people are often looking for a full server, but many S&D maps are better suited for the range between 5v5 and 10v10.

In a game such as this one which features a small community of players, S&D- if it becomes popular, would be a good way to still have quality fast paced and tactical gameplay without needing a whole lot of people. It is for this same reason that it is perfectly suited for competition.

I'm going to put up a short video in a little while explaining the work that went into map conversions and what we were trying to do there.
