Will I be able to play this game as a stand-alone application?

Will I be able to play this game without registration?

Will I be able to play this game in Linux?

Will I be able to run my own server that is not part of Steam or whatever?

What is the extent of the changes in terms of open-source moving to the Unreal Engine 4?

What maps will be included standard?

What is the high level status of the project right now?

What are the most significant changes to gameplay compared to the legacy Urban Terror that you had to decide upon and admit to?

What are the reason why someone would not want to make use of Steam?

I guess people don't want to tie themselves to steam. I too would indeed prefer if UrT remained separate from steam, that is would work (to a reasonable extend) without steam. Its not like i wouldn't use steam, i use it on a daily basis, I just don't like first off tying myself to it. Then there obviously is the privacy issue (since they pretty much know when you play what game).
However, i can see that features such as steam friends, their server browser, their tools section and most imporantly UPDATES (which basically is the reason steam was created in the first place) are a huge help to developing a game and i have no "problem" with you making use of it. It sure as hell is easier and quite possibly better to use a premade API maintained by a big company that to do those things on your own. If i didn't have a steam account already, i would create one for urban terror in any case. <3

There is one thing that i always like about UrT though: That you could always just copy paste/unpack it and play right away. No registration, no accounts, no unlocks, nothing. Just play. (Granted the fact that it is copy pastable is more a relic of its origin and age)
If possibly i would prefer it if there was a non steam version for both clients and servers. I wouldn't care if it lacked a possible matchmaking feature, or a friendslist or whatever, just having it would be nice. This may sound pretty strange, and even more so considering i would probably end up the steam version anyways. Its just about that good old feeling of, i guess, freedom.
Sorry for my bad spelling - I am still asleep. :)
