There will be no peace for the wicked.

First of all, thank you all for your understanding to my previous announcement, I'm really moved by such a warm response. I just would like to explain myself a bit better and also try to clear any doubts you may have regarding FoF's future.

Why online reputation should matter to any of you.

One of my complains wasn't about negative reviews at all, anyone has the right to write such reviews as far they are minimally fair. My complain was about reputation tarnishing reviews. Someone in a highly upvoted review that can be seen on top implied that I usually ban legit players right and left and treat all those people like shit. That was the actual problem, I never have done that, that's not me. That's just a wicked and very negative image of me someone was touting as true. I'm a game developer, if I ever wanted to release a new game or talk about my past projects, should I have to carry such fabricated reputation on my shoulders?

There's lot of young people around here that may not understand the full implications of this behavior. It's not a game, reputation tarnish practices are an actual crime in lots of countries. Any of you have the right to protect your reputation as much as I do, and that's what I tried to do and probably didn't explained properly. This is as serious as it can get, really. Upvote any negative review if you think it highlights an actual problem, but please, report those who seek to destroy other people's reputation.

About Fistful of Frags future development.

I'm not just leaving this mod behind to never come back. I'm stopping my development duties as implementing new features or designing new maps. I fully created half the official maps approximately and also coded the entire game, there's not much more I could actually add to improve gameplay or overall feel.

However, I'll keep doing maintenance work as bug fixing and other backstage tasks. I'll be cooperating with the community when needed, for instance: adding new community maps to official rotation, new assets or whatever the community brings to keep FoF alive. If any of you want to contribute somehow, feel free to do it. You'll make lot of people happy, except a few haters ;)

Edit: the mentioned review is not showing now, the author probably made it visible to friends only, who knows why...

Why developing this game isn't fun anymore.

This is a message directed towards those who still care about Fistful of Frags and appreciate the huge effort done by me and others to polish and improve this free game on Steam.

I'd like to remark that many updates were released during almost two years for a game that doesn't seek cash or benefice of any kind. We started with 4 maps and 1 game mode, now there are more than 20 for 4 different game modes. FoF did not receive donations or monetization of any kind, it actually costs me some money. I mention it because it also means complete freedom, freedom to stop when you feel is right to stop, and this time has come.

Developing a free game is great when you feel connected to its community and your work is appreciated. This isn't the case anymore. It's more or less normal that the so called “haters” pop up from time to time, but signs are too evident to ignore them. Just take a look to highlighted reviews in Steam store and you'll see what I mean. There're pay to win games out there that get less harsh reviews than we are getting now.

I also would like to clarify that I banned someone recently that seemed a cheater to me. Don't remember any other ban in the last half year, since I started to change the code to break the public hacks around that time. I was wrong, however his reaction was overly dramatic and it seems to have ignited a campaign not only against my person but the game itself. I may be a jerk but the game and all its player base have no fault and shouldn't be the target of this campaign. Let other people enjoy FoF even if you don't do it anymore.

This isn't only about some random persons hiding behind their computers to attack me or this game. I know that I'm not in touch with the community regulars, I don't feel confident in some the feedback gathered by the community so I tend to ignore it. I understand that this pisses some people to no end but that's how things work with me. Do you think I'm a jerk? I could tell you 1001 ways of people being jerks to me along this time but that would be a time waste.

So just to clarify, things have to end eventually. No drama, that's just how things are. The game is quite polished right now, lacks content but it can be added if someone feels like creating something. Thank Source engine for being so easy to mod. Just wanted to be as clear as possible, say goodbye and that's all. I prefer to leave it here as things will get worse over the time. That's what happens when a multiplayer game dies, and Fistful of Frags has had a very long life, being an actual free game and all.

Pass the Whiskey!

About This Game

Fistful of Frags born years ago as a Wild West themed modification for Source engine. It has been completely renewed for its Steam release, paying special attention to combat mechanics.

Also note this is a completely *free* standalone mod, no micro-transactions exist, no registration required. Just install and play. You may see ads when joining certain third party servers that host our game for free. That's however completely unrelated to FoF dev team, we do not profit from them.

Fistful of Frags is a half life 2 mod dedicated to the wild west. It feautres a unique game style which rewards people on their notoriety which involves being able to be diverse in killing even using less powerful guns, killing people in different ways, getting kill streaks, ending kill streaks and shooting hats off people. Hence the player with the most kills may not be in fact the winner. Anywhere up to 40 people can be in a match which is usually utter mayhem.

Unlike other shooters which require running and gunning, this one dictates that you stand still and aim properly so that your rewarded with greater accuracy. It also authenticates the guns of the old, by making them weak, slow and rather heavy slowing down your speed.

Undoubtedly you will experience novel moments in the game like when I ran out into the street with no ammo just to realise that someone had my head in their sights, just as they were to pull the trigger a train runs over them. Talking about the trains its fun trying to hijack them, or confiscate a toilet demanding privacy, or play a concerto to a audience of axe weilding madmen. Probably the thing that had me most in hysterics is to crawl up to the back of a horse and shoot it in the backside. I won't ruin the surprise, but let's just say that the developers have all class.

There is now a competitive league for this game that showcases professionals at work. Having said that everytime i personally log into the game it feels like i'm up against these professionals. Take for instance when my team logged in to go against a few hispanic children. It was like the battle of Normandy but with sniper rifles. The game could hardly keep up with the amount of times it needed to respawn my team. The hispanic children were gunning us down every four seconds and if that wasn't bad enough, they were also using voice chat taunting us in several languages to show how versatile they are. These children were so professional I have no doubt that they were even multi-tasking while killing us, like stroking their cat on their lap between shots.

Hence I have a love/hate relationship with this game. The bots are often ridiculous in their difficulty and I never see a way to make them more docile so that I can learn the mechanics. The kicking system will have sniper players raging, there is no map in the game which prevents close combat forcing skillful sniping, two kicks from a player and your dead. Its easy for your character to get snagged in doorways and on furniture. Having said all that the beefs I have with the game are trivial if you are to play this game with friends. There is much to be enjoyed here and it's completely free.

The main developer has hinted that there are new player models and animations soon to be introduced in the not so distant future. There has also been a large amount of chatter in regards to steam workshop compatibility, steam inventory drop items and a co-operative mode against a constant wave of enemies. It's the developers dedication to his product and his listening ear to his fans that makes this completely free to play game worthy of a slot in your library.

With that in mind don't forget to crawl up to the back of a horse and shoot it!

Developers will ban people from the game for 'cheating' with no evidence. They are also rude, unprofessional and outright lie. See the developers replies in the comment section below to see what I mean.

"Right or wrong you didn't paid a dime, all the hours you played are a gift that someone else gave to you and can be taken away when we suspect someone is hacking. Fair or not that's how it works."

That's a direct quote from one of the developers, spelling and grammar mistakes left in for posterity.

Played with the Dev and ended up getting banned from the entire game simply for getting a headshot on him. Sounds ridiculous right?

Had played for over a hundred hours and the dev, R_yell, comes into the server, plays for 10 minutes (very poorly I might add) and decides I am cheating. Have no way of appealing the ban as he also banned me from the discussion forums. Have never encountered such unprofessionalism in nearly 20 years of online gaming. He had zero evidence I was cheating and as my profile will show I have been a steam member for coming up 8 years with no infractions on my account.

I have around 3000 hours on source games but apparently that counts for nothing as R_Yell is a super sleuth and thinks I would risk my account with over 200 games to cheat in a f2p mod. I even helped him out by filling in his survey just the other day as well but nevermind.

I wish I was joking but I am not, I would recommend this game as long as you don't get too high of a score or get more than one headshot on the dev because then you aint going to be playing no more and there won't be a damn thing you can do about it.
