    Personally, I like the teamwork in Invasion. I still play on clandw's server (clandw.org) and there's always people on.

    Monster Hunt I played in UT99 was a bit like Dark Souls, you had to beat hordes of inhumane opponents in order to move to the next area. That was fun.

    Comparing MH with Invasion is like comparing oranges with lemons. Although they both consist in the basic premise of cooperative gameplay to defeat all monsters, MH is mostly to chill out and explore the map itself a bit, kill the monsters in the way and complete the objectives, while respawning whenever you get killed by any of them, whereas Invasion is for the actual challenge, heavy team work, is basically "survival" and nothing more.

    Having that said, a good MH map is by far more difficult and therefore takes more time to create, since you're essentially creating almost a small campaign in it (or at least that's how it should be done, like MH-Andromeda and other similar ones), whereas an Invasion map is just your usual average deathmatch or onslaught map, with wave of monsters after wave, with some few good spots to get cover, healed and protected.

    So, in conclusion, personally I would like to see both, one to chill and just kill stuff and another for the challenge, one is not better than the one, they both have their own independent identities as gametypes.

    I played Invasion with classes alright. Never liked it though. It made the game either too easy for the No.1 and too hard for anyone who died and lost some progress. E.g. halfway through a game if you died, and missed out on an entire wave while waiting to respawn, you missed out on a lot of experience too and you were too weak for the upcoming waves.

    ...but, essentially, yes.
    UT3 had no skaarj models, or any monsters, except the Krall. These are custom made, based around MonsterHunt/Invasion models with a little extra imagination. The author made the Skaarj Troopers look the strongest, most heavily armored units, like the Heavy Skaarj was in Unreal 2.
    The classes are from Unreal 1 / Monsterhunt. There were 3 Skaarj classes:
    • Warrior - basic skaarjs with melee weapons. They could shoot something from their hands too.
    • Trooper - artificially bred skaarj, weapon wielding units, like snipers, infantry, troopers, officers
    • Bosses - warlord, queen


    Then there are the puppae, the unevolved skaarj.

    i like invasion more because you can configure how much monster attack and how much wave level has.

    New beasties are needed to keep pace with new environments

    I think I played invasion twice, after the first time my first thought was angrily, "why didn't they call the guy who made MH grrrrrrrrrrrrr"
