They must not allow you to join the server of your choice then?  I was under the impression they let you choose servers now.  I clicked "join" and it auto selected and ~10 seconds later loaded me in.

Well, that still doesn't change the fact that servers might be setup to have loadouts. If you host your own server, you could probably turn off loadouts. I am just speculating here :)

You can tweet at doom and at idSoftware, and pitch that classic DM idea :) Sometimes they actually reply.

I just asked on Discord DOOM chat if it's possible to play DM without loadouts and ppl said yes, but only through SnapMap.

You can make DM map for MP mode, and host server with that map. And you'll have good ol' classic Doom DM experience.

DOOM SnapMap is kinda like UE4 to my understanding. Start SnapMap, use multiplayer template and build on that. Then send invites to your friends to play it with you. 4 people max.

That's the only way to play classic DM right now.

I bet they'll eventually add a mode/option for that classic gameplay. You're not the only one who wants it. I see it regularly posted at various forums. People want to play without loadouts. The problem I see is having to go through all the maps and strategically place weapons. Testing would be needed.

Ok, snapmap then.  cool.  Thanks motorsep.

I read on the steam forums people complaining every weapon is overpowered.  I don't read much anymore about wanting non-CoD style MP any more.  :(

I don't play (any of) CoDs, so I have no clue what they have going on in MP or SP there :)

Classic Doom weapons were pretty powerful as far as I remember, so I don't know why people complain

The weapons are fine. You can stomp anybody with any weapon as long as you know it very well.

I guess the newer Halo/CoD's have the same MP setup as Doom: loadouts, strong weapons as pickup only, temp upgrades, etc.

The weapons are fine. You can stomp anybody with any weapon as long as you know it very well.

I'm guessing that's the problem: people don't like losing.  :)

Exactly. I'm sure I piss off people when I'm running around combat shotgunning like a noob. But you know what I really don't care because I'm usually always in the top 3 and I get lots of kills.  O0

LOL Awesome.

The BFG is definitely not nerfed in Doom. When I get that sucker I feel invincible. Until I'm out of ammo of course. Then it's back to combat shotgunning while hopping around like a crackhead on gymnastics.

Unless it's been added in the past couple months, I don't remember the BFG in Doom MP.  Is that the ultimate nerf?  :)

id should do an April 1st joke of making all the guns the exact same damage and see if people notice.  :)  Aww heck, do it right now! :D

Yeah BFG is in Doom. Its a special pickup item. You can see through walls with using its secondary fire mode. Its awesome. Would like to see that feature in the singleplayer mode.
