Nexuiz 1vs1 tournament groups and matches have been defined, with the exception of the seventh group which we hope to fill in soon.

Please take a look there and see what matches do you have and report here about your availability. We're hoping to do some matches tonight already (Saturday 9 PM GMT and on) if any pair of opponents is available.

So just post the soonest time you are available so we can match you up. Most participants noted the weekends and during the weekdays mostly evenings so we should try to cluster our availability on those points in time.

After you post I will set the date, hour and minute if necessary and you should then show up about 15 minutes in advance on #gamefest IRC channel on irc.freenode.net or #gamefest.nexuiz on irc.quakenet.org to be quickly briefed on the rules and sent to a match. Smiling

The rules are simple when it comes down to it. Each player chooses one map and you play both until the timelimit or max number of frags are hit. You MUST record a demo for inspection purposes!

Thank you

Hopefully I will be able to

Hopefully I will be able to play Sunday afternoon or night US Eastern Standard Time (-5 I think). Weekdays, I have only a few blocks of time where I absolutely can't play. I think that Europen "evenings" will not be a problem. That would be midday in most of the US.

..so I should be able to start Monday if not Sunday. Regardless, I'll probably be able to accomodate all/most of my opponents. [Note that weekends are not that great for me, but I may be able to squeeze something in whenever I know ahead of time. I did not specify this in the sign-up page since my schedule will probably not be a problem if push comes to shove.]

Could we get something up

Could we get something up on the game fest homepage that alerts people to this scheduling that is currently underway. It may help push things along faster/smoother.

@Jose, I'll try to put a brief colorful status box on the homepage which will show current status of tournaments with a link to more info.

And btw, I will unfortunately be away most of the day after 3 or 4 PM GMT+1 tomorrow (sunday), but I'll probably be back around 10 PM or so. I suppose some matches can be done without me being present all the time if all rules are followed and demos recorded though, but would be nice to know who would do a match tomorrow then.

I think Jose and GreEnmArine could, if not tonight, have a match tomorrow.

Tonight at least Spyro_boy and Diomedes, but I hope more of you guys become available. It may be late evening here, but in US it's not so late yet. Smiling

My timezone is GMT+8.

Friday and Saturday I could do until 1 or 2 my time (which would be 5 or 6 GMT), Sunday I could only do until midnight, which would be 4pm GMT.
Weekdays (except Fridays) should be the same times as Sunday.

Edit: I'll check later if somebody from my group is available for a bit of shooting and killing.

I'd just like to note one

I'd just like to note one rather important thing. Nexuiz ladder servers don't appear to be running only 1vs1 maps so when playing on those servers and the mode is different than normal 1vs1 deathmatch a map has to be changed with the one with a "dm" prefix. This shouldn't be a big deal since each player chooses a map anyway, but just so it is known, a way to change map is this:

vcall chmap dm_map in console where "map" is the name of the map. For example: vcall chmap dm_toxic would change to a "toxic" map in a deathmatch mode which is on the server set as 1vs1. Also to see a list of available maps just press tab after vcall chmap.

To finally move to the map the other player just needs to accept the vote by pressing F1.

The match free-zombie vs. Rad_Ished took place, Rad_Ished won.
Demos are at http://www.freedomware-gamefest.com/node/46

It appears we didn't completely follow the procedure, I hope it doesn't matter.

Narrow the following time

Narrow the following time range. I am using your time (I am 13 hours behind).

8 -> 13 Monday (gmt+8) -- this would be the end of Sunday for me.
21 Monday (gmt+8) -> as late as you want Monday or Tuesday early morning.

I can maybe play during part of the time not specified but you have to ask as soon as you can for me to confirm.

Probably I can accommodate a similar range for the next several days should you not be able to play Monday.

I've updated the Nexuiz

I've updated the Nexuiz 1vs1 page with match results from sunday. All is fine, but I do have a comment on a match between free-zombie and Rad Ished.

It appears that both maps in that match were played on the same server, one in which there was a noticeable lag disadvantage to free-zombie (who also lost the match). According to the rules free-zombies chosen map would be played on a server where he has bad ping and Rad Ished's chosen map would be played on a server where he has bad ping (basically vice versa). Since this wasn't done, free-zombie has a chance to call for the match to be repeated.

In that case it will be repeated and results will be modified if they change. FZ, reply to this post if you want that.

Now, here are the further proposed match schedules:

plouj - libervisco: Monday (night towards tuesday) 00:15 GMT (plouj's 7:15 PM)

plouj - KIAaze: Tuesday 11:15 PM GMT

Ironwolf - Thunder_PT: Tuesday 8 PM GMT (hard to match these two so trying to find a compromise, Ironwolf agreed to this time even though it's much earlier than he originally specified, if Thunder_PT can do a match at the maximum of his tuesday time it can proceed. I'll probably be there to send them off)

reptiler - Jose: Monday 3:15 PM GMT

These are just proposals for now. Please confirm if you're ready for it. You can also feel free to just meet up at best time when you can do it and do a match. I don't have to be present for you to start if you can start. Smiling

Cheers

Well, for me the time for the match with Jose is fine.

By the way, is there a low-grav map in Nexuiz, like Morpheus in UT? I really loved that map...
