UKCS vs GTFO (DOD:S) ?

Postby Primal ShadoW on Sun Dec 05, 2010 11:59 pm

Yo, what up guys!

I made this post on the GTFO forums as well, so I'll pretty much copy and paste, with some adjustments. Ideas are as follows:

Not a full-on 16vs16, but something less crowded which allows for maneuvering and possible flanking missions - so what I'm thinking is from 10vs10 to maximum 13vs13. Obviously this isn't how the classic ED config is set up in regards to max players, but I'm sure it can be tweaked to fit our preferences in some way. We can also discuss time limit for each side, how many maps and class restrictions. We should set a timelimit so that both forums have time to prep themselves, both in regards to recruiting enough players, but also to get some hardcore tictacs set up.

Only suggestions, but here's my thoughts on the setup:
Player count: 12 players on each side, making a total of 24 (I know, my math rocks).
Class restrictions: 1 sniper, 1 MG, 1 rocket, 4 lights (rifles), 3 heavies (support) and 2 mediums (assaults). This makes it a total of 5 autoweapons and 5 singleshot weapons + MG and rocket. Should be alright and even. We could also add +1 to the amount for each class, so that if someone doesn't want to play rocket or MG, they can switch to the class they want without too much hassle. This means 1 snip, 1 MG, 1 rocket, 5 available rifleslots, 4 available supportslots and 3 available assaultslots.
Time: I'm thinking 30 mins each side, 2 maps, totalling at 2 hours. Too much? Too little? Discuss.
Maps: Maps should be official maps to be honest, allowing newer players to enjoy themselves as well. Personally I'd love to see some ordinary ESL maps like lennon, coire, santos, diversion etc, but that can be a topic for discussion of course. Problem is, it kinda narrows down the knowledge of newer players if they are to be brought in, which I don't see why they shouldn't.
Date: Probably the toughest one to decide, seeing how christmas is coming up, and some of you, like me, are still finishing up on your exams or papers. There's three options as I see it; before christmas (could be too early to get stuff organised), between christmas and new years eve (gaming in the glorious time of holidays? Hell yeah! :D ) or after new years eve. When we find out what suits people the best, a more specific date can be set.
Server: Yours? Ours? Half on each?

tl;dr?
UKCS vs GTFO, 12v12, 5,4,3,1,1,1, 30 min x 4, 2 maps. Time tba.

What do you guys think of this? Feel free to add me to steam; janus_romanus and we can work out the details If you're positive towards this, make a seperate thread where people who want to play can sign up.

Hope to hear from you!

Hm. I personally like this idea well. An sort of competition.
However then I would suggest Highlander Mode. 18 players, no hassle =3

I'd say only limit sniper, MG and assaults personally. Also, 2 hours I'd say would be max...maybe 20mins per round? I don't know the dedication level of players here for stuff like this. Most ESL maps are good for 12 a side I should think!

Totally up for this :D

I think we need limits on rifles and supports as well, or else it'll suddenly be a whole team of heavies running around. Would cause inbalance. That's why, when people sign up for this, they should add what class they want to play.

Time wise, I agree. 2 hours might be over the top. 20 mins each side, for 2 whole maps should be sufficient for most.

And I didn't think about the recommended player count in ESL maps. When I come to think of it it might be too much with 24 ppl running around on coire and try to cap all flags. Would become a stalemate. Make it officials only - argentan, donner, anzio, palermo/salerno and possibly kalt would be good maps to play with this amount of players on.

Hi Guys

Just to confirm, we have quite a few players already interested in this so we should definitely be able to get something sorted. I would suggest that before we finalize exactly who will be there, we should think about some dates.

I would suggest we choose two potential dates and then see which one most people would be available for. Once we have the time and date sorted, we can decide the exact class limits/map schedule

I've discussed dates with GTFO (which by the way is a community similar to UKCS, only smaller and not as fun :D) and we've concluded that we either set the date to before christmas eve, or between christmas eve and new years eve. This means december 19th or december 26th, both being sundays and is when most people would be home (with hangovers). If neither of these dates suits the majority of players, it will be postponed until after new years eve.

SIGN UP, and I guarantee that it will be a blast!
