Epic Games has updated the Unreal Tournament Forum rules. This is most likely designed to rein in some of the relentless bashing of the game that’s been going on. Here’s a snippet:
We’re building Unreal Tournament as a collaboration between the community and Epic Games. We’re still in pre-alpha and we’re looking to get to alpha by the end of 2016/beginning of 2017. There’s still a lot to do – see how you can make a difference!
Unreal Tournament Development: Developing a game in the open with the community is something new to all of us. We are excited about the content being created by the community and we’re looking for ways to make the contribution process easier so we can get more people involved. People don’t usually get to see games this early, and we’re aware that game development is a slow process. This can sometimes get frustrating to contributors and players alike. We feel like we have something great going on, so if you have the patience to work with us and understand that you’re developing for and playing a game that is not ready for prime time, then we’d love for you to come along for the ride!
If you’re looking for immediate results, or the development process is too slow and frustrating for you, please consider joining us again at a later date as we move toward beta. While we value gameplay feedback, personal attacks and consistent negativity will not be tolerated. We want the forums to be an inviting place for both new and longtime posters to discuss the game. Please be mindful of this when you’re posting.
