Harlski.

We call them funcomps, and we run them every hour smile.gif

Quite a few of them are just oddball games like teeworlds or baboviolent.
But we also run HL2DM, UT2k4 (various mods), Quake at least once, and whatever else pops into orbit's or my head tongue.gif


But they're as what they state, fun comps you win like a bag of lollys.

I'm talking like prizes that match bigger tournaments like keyboards and shit.

And Alioth explains it better.


the bigger the tournament, the bigger the prize

if a game is some no name nothing that no one plays, then there will be little interest.

maybe just get good at a game that people play?

This is exactly it. Why should the 'pro' players be disadvantaged because they practice more/get a clan together? They obviously wanted the prize more than you did, or you would have practised just as much. At the end of the day, a tournament is still a tournament.

This isn't really a 'mod', but it's still awesome. I assembled it from add-ons of a couple of guns to make UBER PISTOL!

Have tried the mod to remove the air limiters in a Maverick, can't say I noticed much difference.

Also trying a couple of paint jobs. Pics soon biggrin.gif


Maverick is a notriously pissy nerf gun, even when modded. It's such a shame because it looks so FREAKING COOL.

Recon is a beast when modded, but it has the bad habbit of chewing up darts.

I haven't tried modding my Vulcan yet as i'm quite happy with it's full auto-preformance.

I want to buy either the longshot or the longstrike next. The longstrike looks freaking cool, but the scope on the longshot would look awesome on my recon..

Yes, but then the hub can always be opened on other ports.
So while port blocking may help fix the problem short-term, it's not a permanent solution

If you read what I'd posted, I never intended for it to be a permanent solution. I am a fan of DC++, however, i believe that if the hub gets randomly shut down every now and then (or switched to a different port or whatever) there will be a whole lot less leeching and a whole lot more gaming.

Wouldn't it be too hard or time consuming for the admins to simply shut it down and re-start it under a different IP every few hours (and then NOT advertise the new IP), would it?

Short answer: no.

Long answer: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

This has nothing to do with how shit it is (protip: very) but because:

A.) Black Ops requires a CONSTANT connection to a master server in order to be able to play multiplayer, and it has no LAN option. These circumstances are simply impossible to create at respawn

B.) The support amongst players for CoD4 is still much greater than any other CoD released since (CoD5, MW2)

*sigh* I hate it when people like you are right.

I WANTED TO BELIEVE that BF could redeem itself. When they kept promising me PC exclusive features, and extended PC support for BC2, i got sucked right in.

It was probably because I was still angry at how MW2 ruined CoD.

Oh well, I won't get fooled again, that's for sure. R.I.P Battlefield series sad.gif

There was something i read on the now-dead Xlan forums, which seemed pretty prevalent to here.

Whenever I think back to Xlan, I remember gaming a LOT more. Whenever I think of Respawn, i only remember idling in DC++.

What was different was that Xlan admins actively shut down DC++ servers. While I do have a GREAT love of DC++, and respawn is a fantastic place for me to go to stock up on all the latest Linux Build's and free demos, I think this is what needs to happen for us.

The problem is, people get way too involved in DC. They get a slot from a big seeder and are reluctant to let it go. This leads to people not gaming anywhere near as much, as their machines will lag from the DC (especially those using the newer hashing versions) and they refuse to shut it down.

If the admins are actively shutting down DC hubs, i think everything will be a lot smoother. Sure, there will still be DC THERE. Someone will just restart the hub under a different name, or someone else will host a hub, but people will be less worried about 'LOOSIN MAH SLUTS' as the hub could go down at any minute.

Combine this with the guys that ONLY show up for the CSS, tournament, ONLY play CSS and leave immediately after, and the amount of guys just playing random games for fun is dramatically shortened. The last time I can remember having a large, sustained gaming session at respawn was when a whole bunch of us filled up a 24 player 'the ship' server and played for at least four hours. This was about... five respawns ago.

The big support that fun-comps have been getting has been great, but they are just short bursts - people play them, then go back to leeching. We really need to kill DC if we want this lan to be about gaming instead of leeching.

PS: I know exactly who you mean when you talk about the 'little shits' but most of them wouldn't even be in this forum.

Most of the people who actually visit this forum and post are just people who want to help make respawn better

I'm a dirty pirate whore for card games.
Last Pokemon TCG starter I purchased was areound 2 years ago. Have been a bit more into MtG lately, though I kinda burned out after one block of collecting and never really playing.
I've also got a metric crapton of Warcraft TCG cards but again, haven't really purchased any in a while.

Would be happy to have a game of anything at Respawn.

I have a couple of WoW TCG sets lying around - some that i got with the collectors edition of Burning Crusade, and others I bought when hunting for loot cards, lol

Anyone still collect Pokemon cards? I'm in no-way as hardcore as I was back in grade 6, but I buy the occasional theme deck or booster every now and then, especially if there's a cool card I want, and actually have two decks that I can use to play with. We should get some friendly games going at respawn, and if there's enough interest, maybe a tournament. Do you have what it takes to be the very best, like no one ever was?

We could get some other TCG's going as well, such as Magic: The Gathering (I would play that, but my mum 'accidently' chucked out my collection loooong ago)

Pros:

-Nerf Warz! Ammo isn't really that big of a problem when there is so much of it flying around. I was able to find enough darts to fill up my clips when it came time to leave.

HOWEVER! What i think may be cool, is if we have a dedicated 'nerf box' up at the front of the admin table. Anyone who finds darts can chuck them in the box, and when it's time to leave, you just get replacement darts from the box. This helps with the problem of people finding darts, but not the right ones (the slim fire darts vs the large ones)

If you guys are feeling partcularly generous, you can splurge for a couple of these bad boys: to keep up the front, so people can 'replenish supplies' mid battle.

It would also be cool if we could organize some kind of full scale nerf war AFK comp - paintball style. Not really sure how it would work, it would have to rely on people's honesty (you're out if you get hit).

-MASSIVE props to Sando for allowing League of Legends to work on the network, just another point that makes LoL a much better game than Heroes of Newerth!

-Pre-paid seat bookings were also a fantastic idea - I was able to sit up towards the admin desk, and away from the 'CSkiddies' that get a little too excited during their comps.

-Steam worked flawlessly. As well as the faster network making getting updates off the FTP a breeze, myself and my friends rarley had any of the connectivity issues we've had in the past.

CONS:

I can't think of too much, this is honestly one of the best respawn's i've been to, but if I had to say something, it would be the constant announcements for people to move their cars. Seriously, people have been coming to this lan long enough, they are warned at the gatehouse, they know they should move their car as soon as they unpack, so if their car gets towed it's their own damn problem.

Steam client updates aren't too big an issue for me, as I can just plug my phone into my PC and use it as a modem to update (which I did last Respawn).

As for the games mentioned, I don't play any of those at Respawn so it's not an issue here either. smile.gif

Someone who uses steam, but doesn't play one of the 'big three'? What do you use it for then?

THEN DO IT AGAIN SATURDAY MORNING BEFORE YOU LEAVE JUST TO MAKE SURE

Seriously, there was a MASSIVE Left 4 Dead 1/2 update the other day, and quite a large TF2 one last week, as well as a couple of small CSS ones. I cannot urge the importance of updating your steam games before you come to respawn!

I definitely think they should be banned.

Especially the item 'sets' that give you a massive bonus (+25 HP for scouts for example) just for wearing a hat.

There just has not been enough time for players to:

A: Acquire them (I'm still missing the scout pistol, and I play/trade fairly regularly)
B: Test them (No-one knows yet which combos give too big of an advantage)

Also remember that there were new mellees for both the Medic and Heavy, and while they seem fairly balanced, should also be banned in the interest of fairness

ALSO, priorax, that post on the SPUF is priceless. Why does the average TF2 player have a negative IQ? Some of the things they said were hilarious:

"At a guess, I'd say the lack of random crits makes it very hard to take down a wrangled sentry."

"Engineers are banned in comp. because they think it's skill less, like all the other class except Soldier, Scouts, Demomen, Medic and Snipers.
They're stupid."

"Basically if it can't easily be spammed out of existence..competitive players don't like it.
Because ya know..the more you spam the more professional you are."

"Spy stab and sap.
Sniper headshots Engi, team moves up and destroys sentry.

But oh well, most competetive players don't think out of their box"
