Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Five Years Old Today

It doesn't seem possible but Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, our first actual factual released game is five of your Earth-Years old. Today. Soon it'll be old enough to drink. And vote. And play with other games.

An enormous thank you to everyone who worked on Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, and played it and are stiiiiillllll playing it and made it so popular and thus helped Splash Damage become the Pulsating Temple of Possibilities that it now is.

Awesome game, would love to see more support from you for it again. It's still more played than Call of Duty 1/2, Day of Defeat (Source), BF2142 and even Call of Duty 4 at the moment! http://archive.gamespy.com/stats/ Love you my dearest ET ;D Happy Birthday!

We players and community love that game so much! Thats why after 5 long years its still active and kicking! http://www.crossfire.nu/?x=news&mode=item&id=2972 and as bo said it would be very nice to see at least little attention from you guyz. Because W:ET is best multiplayer FPS and none of new games are even closer to this great atmosphere, spectators ETTV mod and unique gameplay! HB ENEMY TERRITORY! WE LOVE YOU! <3 btw you can see great W:ET cup starting atm with 1000 E prizemoney and best teams from europe - ESL Major Series 2 http://www.esl.eu/eu/et/ems/season2/groupstage/

Agree with guys above. Im wondering why u stopped support this great game and released this crap et:qw, but well its your decision and everyone makes mistakes. Its a good time to start supporting this game once again or maybe selling it to American army and made it like AA?
Posted on 29 May, 2008 - 17:56
W:ET 4 EVER! Without ET great Mods like TCE have never became truth! ET works on many PCs although bad graphic cards but the fun-factor is verry biig! Congratulations, ET! MAC pc ^^

Happy birthday ET! May 29 2003 was a holiday (thanks to Jesus :P ), so I downloaded it after breakfast and have been playing it ever since. I still miss the nade physics from the public beta though! ;)
Posted on 29 May, 2008 - 19:10
\o/ Best game ever! Really!
Posted on 29 May, 2008 - 22:14

what's to support, play 2.60b with ETPro 3.26 and tell me what's wrong, it's still one of the top 5 games online after 5 years btw, we run a stock 6 map ETPro server, no extras and it's well populated this IS the ultimate MP game

Would be great if you make W: ET 2 (not free this time) with a nice support to competition and comunity. Et become a bit dead becuase of the amount of cheaters around (PB isnt supporting et so frequently, same for sD that dont release a patch for this game since years.. while we still have alot of bugs around). Congrats anayway.

Hurrey !!:D:stroggbanana: I love ET:D I hope RCTW:2 will show up soon <3:>:D PLZ!!:D

HAPPPY BIRTHDAY ET by the BlackOps clan !! :stroggbanana::stroggbanana::stroggbanana: BlackOps Gameserver - 212.187.208.38:27960 (Jaymod, 2.60b in London)

I love you ET! Btw, how about releasing the source of ET? I can almost see ETMMORPG coming ;)
Posted on 30 May, 2008 - 23:25
or w:et to steamworks! ;) on the other note releasing the source may ruin the game by hackers own version of the game.
Posted on 31 May, 2008 - 00:41
Ehr, the "game" code is already available. What's left is the engine code, which is property of id, AFAIK. Also, having access to the engine source code works in two ways - it may increase the number of cheaters but it can also allow coders to fix exploits.
Posted on 31 May, 2008 - 10:04
or w:et to steamworks! ;)
The first time I heard about Steamworks I was like "Wow how awesome would it be if W:ET used this", however asking a quick question in the splash damage irc channel quickly learned me that there aren't that many advantages to Steamworks, mainly due to all the features it has already being available in the form of tools.

It still is the best game ever but it would be lovely if new integrated installer with 2.60b would be released. It can't be that much work I presume?
Posted on 31 May, 2008 - 19:12
ohhh - happy birthday....and yes ..... the best game ever.
Posted on 31 May, 2008 - 20:06
best game out there cant beat it no matter how call of duty medal of houner and any other fps go u just cant beat ET because its a mix between being accurate and moving at same time so cod4 and moh cant compate what can u say splash damage has won the game till the world dies award my xfire is ~etatoz~ add me for some one to game with and also i will do tj with use as well but im not the best at it

Five years old? Great, my doughter has five years. She born 29 may 2003. I think this is destination :D
Posted on 2 June, 2008 - 15:44
I think this is destination :D
You mean "destiny"?
Posted on 2 June, 2008 - 19:16
I'm late to the party but this game is indeed pure awesomeness. The only reason I stopped playing it was because I wanted to continue supporting SD buy buying their new game. I wasn't planning on sticking with QW but it grew on me really fast. I can't go back to ET, can't wait for SD's next great multiplayer game.

started to play ET in july 2003 and never stopped created 2 clans and we are still playing it a lot ty too much for all who still make maps,mods for the best game
Posted on 28 June, 2008 - 17:44
after a 5 years guys want to show that they still do care about ET, but this is bullshit. Its all about this part:
On a side note, for those of you wanting to import the maps into Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars, jRAD and Torchy assure me that this is indeed possible as EditWorld will happily import *.map files. Keep in mind that it will require some of the obvious texture path replacements and entity work, though.
paranoia, enough said
