Tim willits from ID is stating that DOOM3 will have a 4 player limit for
multiplayer games.
Also you will not be able to join a game once started, ie like orginal doom
, the players start at same time.

This extends to quake4 as well.

Heres the interview


my 2cs

Well ID after years of leading the game, have finally shot them selves in
the foot.

4 player games in a time of big team games rulling the roost is basically
comercial sucide.
This also places big limitiations on spectaiing games.
Basically the FFA will be dead.

Most peopl wil probe buy the games for a single player experience and go
back to whatever current team game is popular.

If this extends to quake4, then this must be a core design decision or
limitation in the new ID engine, so no hopes for a DOOM3 powered team game
in the future.

..SAD DAY :(
