CSS Event: Server 3 Halloween - 31-10-08 @ 6PM UK Time

Postby alias on Sun Oct 26, 2008 5:36 pm

UKCS#3 - 213.228.232.222:27030
31-10-08 @ 6PM UK Time

UKCS#3 will also be up on sunday evenings from 6PM because of the mad map rotation.


Due to halloween we are going to have a special event with only halloween/scary maps. Many of the maps are taken from the j2 halloween map packs with some more maps that are already on the rotation to get a nice long map list. Some of these maps are just normal maps that are suitable for server 2 and some for server 3 (we might add the map to the normal lists if they do well btw).

The maps in the list:
Note, the maps havent been pretested on ukcs yet and if they couse server crashes they can still be dropped from the list. Btw, i wont show screens and give full descriptions of all the maps. This is because i want the maps to be a bit like a surprise for the people that dont know them yet. The ones i did it for are just to show an example of what to expect

cs_deathouse
From the j2 halloween 2006 map pack.

cs_dracula
This map is already a guest map on server 2. Its theme is simply in the house of dracula and looks very good

cs_spooks_s
A classic map by nipper

cs_silenthill
From the j2 halloween 2008 map pack. Based on the silenthill games where you cant see that far in the distance.

de_deadblock
From the j2 halloween 2007 map pack.
ImageImage

de_fearmansion
From the j2 halloween 2008 map pack.

de_hangcastle_s
From the j2 halloween 2006 map pack. Its a remake of a 1.6 map from dr.boo (typical name for such event :P)
ImageImageImage

de_haunts
From the j2 halloween 2008 map pack. Another masterpiece by nipper

de_livehouse
From the j2 halloween 2007 map pack.

de_paranoid
From the j2 halloween 2006 map pack.

de_nightmare
From the j2 halloween 2006 map pack. Currently on server 3 already but allways worth for these events

Download Part 2 *Clicky Here*
40,8MB zipped (80,6MB unzipped)

Download Part 3 *Clicky Here*
41MB zipped (68MB unzipped)

Note: When joining the server you will auto download the maps. however, its alot slower then as there will be alot more people downloading so its recommended to do it this way. Spooks and dracula arent in the packs just download those from the server when the come up or search on FPSB


Event Details:
When: Friday 31st October 2008 @ 6PM uk time
Server: UKCS#3 - 213.228.232.222:27030
Map Duration: 15 Minutes per map
Event Duration: Finishes at 6AM
Slots Avaible: 32 (+ the usual sponsor slots)
Alltalk: ON

After the event the server will shut down

FYI, if you dont like a map dont go in spec for the complete map but play instead. Just rate the map bad then. If you are too long in spectator you will be kicked (1 round to go to the toilet however isnt a problem as long as you say afk in the chat - 5 rounds however guarantees a kick - exceptions can be made if you got a good reason). Also, extreme whining about the map being bad while everyone else loves it can also result in a punishment. The event is mainly ment for fun so repeatedly disruptive behaviour can result in a ban the lenght of the map test event! - however, dont worry if you just make the mistake once. we allways start with a warning ingame followed by a kick. Due to the low ammount of slots for the event going in spec all the time because a map is bad is counted as slot wasting which is why we have this rule. Further, the whining can influence results and we still want to see if the maps are suitable for the normal rotation

This event will be scheduled in the UKCS Steam Community calendar and will post you a reminder when the event begins (1 hour before and the moment itself).

The event is until 6am, but how many ppl will be on at 4am - you'll have to find out.

CSS#3 is all primed and ready to go - it will auto start at 6pm. The maps cycle through the full set before looping around.

Have fun everyone :D

I actually played on ukcs on a row for like 5/6 hours on a row and normally I can't play longer then 1 hour on a row man I can't tell how happy I was having a sponser slot because everybody wanted in which was nice :D

There where a few awfull maps but some extremly nice maps!!
But what a shame I didn't play them all doh <.<

cs_deathouse
cs_silenthill
de_hangcastle_s
de_haunts

Where very nice maps I really enjoyed those. :)

Heres some screenshots of my scores I made since I normally find a positive score good with me these are more the fine...

The thing that disappointed me was the amount of people bitching about trying to get into the server. It would be nice if cross server chat could be turned off on UKCS#3 for themed nights that will be popular because it got annoying with so many people spamming "I can't join, someone leave" in green.

I loved the Halloween night, it was a great laugh me as "Raze™|CREEP|UKCS|". Also vikingclan is carrot :o, didn't realise he is crazy(only joking). Your really funny when you scream down your Mic though, great laughs.

Carrot did i give you permission to use my score?

:P.
