Multiplayer Match Idea [Help wanted to make it real]

I've got an idea for a multiplayer game for UT and U227, quite... different. But as I am a total noob with netcode, I'd need a help. Not now, later on, but still. I'll wont tell you what idea this is, and how it works until I have someone who would be willing to try to code the netcode of it. Or at least help me with it.

Here's an idea

fill the maps with Lava.

Who manages to get a kill wins.

You might need to share a bit more information about your great idea if you want to get someone on the hook.

Oh, phuck, ok. Imagine an arena, just like Dark Arena in Unreal.
Two teams. One team: Humans. 15 of them at best.
Other team... A Titan.

The goal is, to kill a titan or to be killed. Titan would be also a player, with different player class. Faster, can smash other players to bits with... Well, one whack, can stomp to make others fly and catch other players if they're too close. Every time a titan dies someone else becomes a titan. Titan's health is based on the total health of the players * some variable. Also, it would be a round match, so a Titan would have a chance to survive. Like 2 minutes round, or so. Tho first I wanna finish the SP version, so you could see how Titan is controlled.

What do you think?

Basically MCoop, although with only the Titan - a good playable Titan pawn.

Sounds great, except IMO, controlling Titans isn't always that fun (compared to another big beast like, the Warlord I guess, much more mobile and crazy), but that depends on how the Titan's new gameplay will work.

Well, the possibility of catching the enemy and smashing it to the ground, or throwing em to the lava pit seems a quite fun I guess.

Tho this titan would be skinner, faster, and much more deadly. And his stones would fly much faster.

Mutant. But that one did not have rounds.

mutant is the best "king of the hill"-style deathmatch variant i've seen. This mod sounds good too. But there's just one thing...... can we ride the titan instead of merely controlling it? Please? :P

Riding Titans suck, controlling them rules.
YOU ARE the Titan.

For the titan, third person or first person. As you'd like.

Use quake 1's shambler model, and use the electric bolts to.
