Tournament Update

Thanks to GA’s “rules” (so well explained by ltmon here) the departure of Sha8doW after the roster change cut off will leave us with a maximum of 7 players for round 2. All 7 have committed to be there but barring Sha8doW’s return we will officially forfeit regardless. I have spoken to GA about this but their response was there is no chance for subbing a player after round 1.

I’d hate for those of us who have committed to not get a game in, so I have spoken to Shrek from RoK and informed him it’s possible we will only have 7, and suggested we officially forfeit, but play regardless. Shrek has agreed and will notify his team.

I still can’t wait for the game and look forward to seeing you all there.

If we’re going to go down, let’s go down with dignity.

The Internet makes it OK

This morning I was directed to a forum thread on the ETQW community site, you yourself can read it here:

http://community.enemyterritory.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16355

Today the general public can see what a fool this guy is. I’m referring to Neg, a member of Clan Nesreca. He has previously shown his immaturity online, to IPX and other clans – simply put he is a racist little kid. In this thread he defends his racism by claiming that it’s ok because it’s on the Internet. There is some factual basis to that, studies have shown that due to the relative anonymity of the Internet people will adopt a more aggressive persona, and become more willing to insult other people than in real life. But….

sad tale.

I’m fond of space games like freelancer, so while I was having a look through my steam client to see
what is out there in the way of new games I spotted X3 Reunion for sale $20, after clicking on it I also saw
that for $25 I could get X2 and X3, great. I only have a 5GB cap on my internet plan so the last
time I purchased a game via steam I made sure my ISP had a content server for steam which they do so
when I downloaded Red Orchestra that time I wasn’t charged. Anyway I start the download of X2 and X3,
the following morning X2 was ready to play and X3 was still in the line, np’s so I spent the day playing
X2. That evening I checked the forum and to my disgust the net was running like snot. It seems steam
didn’t use my content server for X2 and X3 and I have been dropped to 56k until my month is up.. Bastards!

Anyhow the moral to my rant is that I can’t play QW until my speed goes back to normal as punkbuster
has a cry that I’m not sending enough packages and promptly kicks me from the server.
The bad news is I my not be able to prac tonight, but the good news is that I only have 4 days before my
net is restored. My apologies, I will try to attend prac tonight but my fingers wont be crossed.

Has anyone seen this man?

Have you seen this man?

If anyone see’s Deviance, in MSN or in game or on a plane – please remind him we have a game Tuesday and we need him there. A few of us are concerned he may not even get online in the next 7 days and we’ll be forced to forfeit.

Yours concerned,

Fuzz

Apparently, we are all GA's bitches

The rules page for the ETQW tournament (http://www.gamearena.com.au/competitions/etqw/rules.php) no longer contains any references to allowing substitutions, and added (amongst other changes) the following:

Teams must comprise of 8 players.

and

Teams must not use any player who is not listed in the registered player list.

And this juicy chestnut:

Any team that has less than 8 players on their team … forfeits the match.

Which is changed from it’s previous version where you could play with fewer than 8 if the other team agreed.

So….. GA expects anyone entered in this tournament to be completely ready to play at any time they happen to announce (less than a weeks notice in most cases) and not be able to sub? If not? NO TOURNAMENT FOR YOU! Am I reading the rules incorrectly or something? Surely some of the other teams have lives… or maybe not.

I know the effort of running a tournament from GA is not trivial, and usually don’t demand people to run things by my rules especially when they are doing it for free. But it’s still irksome, especially when the promo for the competition said:

And maybe you’re just out to have fun.

Hmmm… nice way to let us “just have fun”.

In any case, I certainly won’t blame anyone from IPX who can’t make a scheduled match under these conditions, although do let us know as far as possible in advance.

ET:QW on Steam

Ok, soo, I still have steam installed.. Reguardless of the fact that I havnt even tried to play CS:S since i got my mittens on the Quake Wars Demo.. Kind of annoying having it open up everytime i log into windoze… I believe soon enough ill probably delete it altogether..? =o

Anyways, when it just started up for me just abit ago, I get the nice popup from steam updates, and low and behold, its for Quake Wars haha..

Special discount this week, 20% off, sale ends monday.. Was $49.95,now $39.95… USD ofcourse…

Only problem I have with buying things off of Steam, is not getting a hard copy of the game… From what I understand with buying games off Steam, is that you have to download it, and then use the appropriate CD Keys/whatever that they will supply you…
I just think its rediculous payin that money and not gettin the box! =p

WTF is the go with these magnets too…? =|
