1.0 Last Version of WON (01.05.2003)[]

Day of Defeat (Version 1.0) was officially released in May 2003. para gameplay mode which was similar to Counter-Strike in that players did not respawn until the end of the round. This mode was eliminated in version 1.0. Unfortunately for some, the release 1.0 included quite a few new features partly vanquishing some of the old veterans but on the other hand inviting new players to the game (mainly from Counter-Strike). The game was made more fun and less realistic. Practically this meant making friendly-fire non-default, adding an on-screen map where you could see your allies and thrown grenades, and a Battlefield-style flag hanging over the head of friends and foes for identification. 1.0 also included auto-reload, some new maps and major modifications to some old maps (e.g. Anzio).
