Will they split our community ?
Will it be better or worse for RO in general ?

I had asked that question a while ago and the consensus was that mods will help RO (if they're good that is) in that people will buy RO just for the mod , just as many purchased HL for DOD and UT for RO when they were mods.

They also may split the player base too as some will want to play RO while others the mod. Happened with DoD and DoD:S , BF2 and it realism mod , BF42 etc. etc.

So , in summary , Tripwire might be happier but the die in the wool RO player may not.

Time will tell.

To date, the mods like Mare Nostrum and Carpathian Crosses should siply expand the game. Something like Defence Alliance gives the whole thing a different twist and is more likely to attract new players to RO (to play DA), who will then stop in and play RO too :)

I installed steam and my account to download RO for my friend and try and brainwash him out of twitch fest...

That failed... he lacks patience...

So... I am hoping that DA is Really Good...

That way, He can get RO for DA... and when he gets tired of DA... he might try out RO... (He isnt a bunny hopper thank god...)

Mods make this already great game greater.

i think more ppl will buy ro especially for these mods. ill buy HL2 because of RnL and Insurgency, so why shouldnt ppl buy RO for MN and other mods?
i think if they are really like addons, they wont split the community. but hey, with more players its not a big problem to split it a bit :D

Mods usually dont impact games in a bad way, its payware expansions that split communities, or new versions of games that are very different from their origional.

Usually, you only see mods taking over if the origional game they mod is bad, a good example is CS, normal Half-Life death match was pretty tame, and easilly bested by the likes of Q3 and UT for that kind of multiplay at that time, add a popular mod like CS to a base like this, and you'll find most people want to play the mod and not the game.

But add mods to a good base, like RO, and people will mix and match, playing both.

Mods may split the community. I choose for example a sim game like R-Factor(known for its small very active fan base), there are so much mods that servers are half empty. And leagues are even split once they ask what kind of championship they'll do. Some prefers one-seat, others GT, and others classic vintage cars.

I would have prefer a 'Community Expansion Pack' instead.

I think the mods will effect RO in a good way. And i dont think the mods will affect ro very much because tripwire is always coming with new toys for us!

I think mods like Mare Nostrum and Carpatian Crosses add to the game.
From my point of view it would be very very cool if servers could flawlessly switch maps/mods automatically. So you can play Basovka right after Tobruk for instance.

I think it comes down to if those mods will have gamechanging features or not.
Only adding new uniforms, weapons and maps doesn't change the game.
