Re: New Tournament Cup

I have teamspeak and Skype. Mumble jumble. Hehe. They all seem good to me. I think teamspeak is the easiest for team chat though.

Right, we will go to which ever server works best for the majority.

Re: New Tournament Cup

So I have spoken to several of the regular GU admins, and most of them say they should be available. Therefore, we will have the first match be played on bzbattleground.com:5158 If bzbg server has issues, we will move to gu.bzexcess.com:5157 Hopefully there will be an admin to help keep the match ru...

Re: New Tournament Cup

Yes, the first 2 matches are not vital. However, this allows for all teams to participate at least twice and rematch. Since the teams were formed randomly, its not exactly fair. These elimination matches can help determine which 2 teams are best overall and able to match in the final. Plus, all othe...

Re: New Tournament Cup

I understand, we all want to play all 5 matches and have great fun in a fast reasonable time. Its agonizing to be patient and wait for the final match and a tournament winner to be declared. However, you must understand that this is 4 teams with 16 players total. The doubles were 4 players, announce...

Re: New Tournament Cup

I have posted the teams and informed everyone who is in a team. There will be no longer any regular participant sign ups. However, we still need people to sign up for substitute. If you would like to play temporarily in any match, please sign up. You don't need to commit. Being a sub just means that...

Re: New Tournament Cup

Yea, I would diffidently use the regular HiX map of the GU servers. The reason I am hesitant to have BZAddict or anything else is because of the location of everyone. Since majority of the players, so far, are in the USA, we need some server in the USA. But there are a few players in Europe, so if w...

jade, how could u not know it was 4 teams until right now. ;P I suggested the tournament thing and ran with it on the 3rd or so reply.

Ok, so we have now reached 15 players signed up. I have contacted 2 more, and they should be signed up within a few days. This will make it 4 players per team. I have asked a lot of players, and its kinda down the middle, some want small teams ~3 players, others want 6 or 7. I would prefer to choose...

Re: New Tournament Cup

Ok, I added that. How long will the cup last? The cup will last as long as it takes to complete all 5 matches and any needed rematches. If enough players are able to complete the matches within a day, then it will last one day. Matches will be scheduled to be played as soon as possible. Basically if...

Re: New Tournament Cup

Yea, I think its best to stick with the normal HiX map. The other thing I would like to discuss is what about substitutes? Such as people who have connection issues, unable to play for some reason, etc. Teams will need a few players to sit back and wait to play if needed. Will these extra players ju...

Re: New Tournament Cup

Well GU hix is my favorite league/map and I originally intended for another cup with hix. So preferably any official hix map would work.

Another possibility, could be using figurines new map: hixurines. However, it does have some limits...such as 10min matches, 5v5,etc.

Good ideas. I think I will go ahead and make a website. Not sure how to host one...so I'll just use one of those popular freebie :) Having players register would be very easy and efficient. And I think when it comes to picking teams...we can either 1) have a draft, 1 player chosen at a time kinda de...

You are acting like there needs to be a step by step manual and huge process for this to be done. It requires a bit of organization and a few more details, but its not l...

Did not mean to turn offensive to Sub. But you are only giving criticism....give me CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. WHY won't it work out.


What do the gu admins think about this idea? Constitution, you didn't really say if you liked it or not.

Furthermore, I believe I've already shared all there is to share. Yes, I agree and support your idea , but that's as far as it goes. Anything beyond that is not worth reaching, IMHO.

Why would you just end it? We have only discussed an IDEA. Just quickly ending, being stubborn to debate/suggest/comment and ending up "supporting my idea" isn't helping anything, Sub.

Re: Noob Riker Cup

Well I guess the original idea of NOOB cup is kinda not an option. I mean, since we can't have matches and have the loser be the winner, and we can't pick and choose the worst players. But still, the Riker cup, is very selective and not many people get in. Especially with only 2 teams, NA and Euro, ...

You're right sub, and as I was writing this topic, I realized why this was probably not a popular consideration.

Has anyone thought about making a riker cup....for new players? Instead of bringing together the most skilled players of North America and Europe, bring together the least skilled and/or new players of GU.

Re: Is it possible to change the callsign colors?

btw I also realized that this configuration line also changed the color of the base on the radar. Again, the call signs in chat and on the scoreboard remain the same default colors. Where are those colors coming from? Is it just within the code or is there a type of blue its getting it from?

So I changed the colors on the radar in the config file, but I noticed that the callsign/username colors did not change.
