Let's not wait much longer.

Thunder_PT has been on IRC yesterday and for OpenArena CTF tourney his team will apparently not be ready till February 22, which is just too long a time to wait. Therefore, Thunder_PT's team has to be disqualified from OA CTF Group 1 which completes all activity in this group regarding qualifications and makes BRUTAL and TS qualified to proceed.

There is one other group left, group 2, which has these teams (note I left out those we don't count on anymore)

EGUSS
Team 1 (Team Extreme, HK/Moldova/US) (reptiler, Fliker09, Jose)
Team 3 (EU) (Skateinmars, vostorga, Ju, w1zrd) EDIT: Replacement players found: Ju, w1zrd
Valherus

And matches that have yet to be played are:

EGUSS - Team 1
EGUSS - Team 3
Team 1 - Team 3
Team 1 - Valherus
Team 3 - Valherus

You can use this thread to tell us when would it suit you. Otherwise I'll be setting certain deadlines.

Thank you

I'm busy until Sunday

I'm busy until Sunday evening GMT.

I just tried to log on to vector.cluenet.org:27961 (dm mode) and could not with the newest client nor with an older one. This has been the case for all 3 servers for a few weeks now. I did manage to play one 1-1 match (plus some practice games) some weeks back but that has been it. The client stays on the "Awaiting challenge ..X" screen as it counts for a while and I get bored of waiting. This is before I even get to the point of entering a password (for fun I tried the password at this point and it didn't work). The console says could not resolve name.

w1zrd, I should re-check,

w1zrd, I should re-check, but I think they found a replacement. I'll keep you in mind though.

Jose, again? I thought I fixed that... Well cluenet is officially becoming annoying.. Can't they keep still for a single week!? :S

Bah will check it out.

I left a comment over at

I left a comment over at doodle. The schedule is missing 12am to 10am (gmt+1).

Also, I listed my max avail times, but I would need maybe 2 days of anticipation to have time to adjust my workload (eg, I am usually busy sat, but can get much of that work done on fri).

Ok for Team 3 vs Valherus

Ok for Team 3 vs Valherus the likely time is 6 PM this saturday. There just needs to be one more V to confirm availability then. With all the active members Valherus has I think it should be likely.

As for Team 1 vs. Valherus, it looks like it could be done immediately after the Team 3 match, about 7 or 8 PM GMT+1 saturday. But Team 1 still needs to have Fliker09 and reptiler confirm...

Just want to mention that

Just want to mention that with such little advanced notice, it is difficult for me to make it on Saturday.

I'll wait and see what the rest of Team 1 does. Fliker09 has a really small window of availability, but there is some flexibility there. Come to think of it, the window is evenings GMT IIRC. I haven't heard from reptiler for a few weeks.

Well, saturday is over so

Well, saturday is over so it's obviously off. Sticking out tongue

But hey, as long as this is done and done fairly soonish. I'm hoping we can get that one match, at least, done within the next week. I'd be forced to set the deadline otherwise, but I'll let you know via email if I do that.

Btw, we just had a match between Valherus and Team 3 and Valherus won. Something is moving! Smiling

Cheers

Waiting for reptiler

Both Jose and Fliker have entered their times and it looks like Wednesday (tomorrow) at 9 PM GMT+1 is the good time for a match. We just need reptiler to say if that's fine.

This Thursday only I am not

This Thursday only I am not available during the 11-24 hour block specified at doodle. Aside from that (if Wed doesn't work out), I could use a 2 day notice in particular if Saturday.

Wow! I just tried

Wow! I just tried 87.230.26.228:33333 (ctf) and it worked. But :22222 (1-1) did not. Also, since forever (weeks) I have been trying vector.cluenet.org:XXXXX and also have not had success.

A reminder to all that the match is (tentatively?) scheduled to be played in less than 6 hours. If so, remember to start up the demo recording. Meet in IRC I think.

In about 5 1/2 hours

In about 5 1/2 hours hopefully we will all get together to play.

Anyone want to explain how to win CTF to me? Is the winner the team that holds the opponent flag longest?

No, you have to capture the

No, you have to capture the enemy flag as often as possible. The team that captures enemy flag a certain number of times first (I think it's set to 15, but not sure) or just most times before a timelimit - wins.

So the point is capturing the flags as much as possible, not in how long you possess them. Of course if blue team has red flag and red team has blue flag, one has to kill the other to score and do a capture. Capture is done by carrying enemy flag over your own (in base).

>> you have to capture the enemy flag

Thanks. I knew I was sniffing in the general area Laughing out loud

Really though thanks for clarify that. I'm so glad I took the chance and asked.

So to verify and thinking about what I have seen. I can capture my own flag to keep it away from others. Then the goal becomes to shoot the person with the flag and take it or if it is at the base take it and bring it to your base to score 1 point.

Then the flag disappears I imagine and you have to go get it again?

I played one time (but I think it was nexuiz) and I remember the scores being huge (over 100), so I thought those were minutes with the flag captured or something.

Hey libervisco, concerning

Hey libervisco, concerning the IRC chat, I got pulled from what I was doing for a while. Sorry, to have left you hanging.

I did not mean a replacement for myself. I meant a temporary replacement for reptiler should it come to that. I can play. If reptiler comes back and wants to play and the temp sub also wants to stay in, I don't mind backing out in that scenario.

Fliker09: Sorry not to have showed up. I got distracted as the hour approached. I should have set an alarm. I really should have showed up, but I guess I fell asleep (figuratively) since I had heard nothing from reptiler even just hours before the match.

It's alright. I went to

It's alright. I went to sleep anyway. Smiling

How about Saturday at the same time? I believe it was 10 PM GMT+1 or so. And if reptiler doesn't show we can try to find someone to replace him in the mean time.

Cheers

Alright. This is enough

Alright. This is enough advanced warning for me. Saturday 10 or 9 Gmt+1 should work out for most of us I think (I prefer 9 but can do 10 though it may not end up mattering by the time Saturday rolls around).

PS: Sleep works for me, too.. at least on even numbered days Smiling

I am all ready for Saturday

I am all ready for Saturday 9 or 10 pm GMT+1. So are we on? Is this a real date?

Maybe we can find subs on irc in the hour(s) leading up to the match.

Sorry for having been

Sorry for having been absent for some time, but real-life has been keeping me so damn busy lately.
This week I'll have more time, as I don't need to go to work. So I'll also be available at times where I usually was not available, meaning daytime HKT, and not only in the evening.
