Prepare for another great event!

On Friday 29th, at 22 UTC, DUC admins will face GU admins in a dualmatch!

First match will be played on ducati map, revenge will be on hix. Each match will take 30 minutes, at least 2 players per team have to play in both games.

Be there and watch the bests in gu and duc leagues!


Servers will be chosen on Friday, according to players lag, but probably will they be dub.bzflag.org:99998 and bzf.guleague.org:5158

Only admins playing? How lame is that?
Wouldnt it be more interesting to let more people participate in it and make it a round based tournament or something like that?
The trick is to get people involved, not letting them watch.

I agree that eligibility for this match is rather exclusive, but anyone is free to organize a fun match for any set of players. It has been difficult to get two teams together for official matches recently, and scheduled matches like this are a nice way to keep players active.

I guess most of the players and some of the observers had a lot of fun. ;-)

Chris, did you not check the date in the original message? :D

Final results were..
Duc Map: 8-1 to duc admins
HiX Map: 10-0 to gu admins

Wasn't expecting such a huge gap in both, but it was fun.

Both matches have been played on regular match-servers (001.bzflag.fr and brad.guleague.org), so replays are available.
And I really would like to thank all players for their well-behaving. Thats the way matches should be played (no bad comments, no "wtf?" or "thru").

Sounds like you admins were examples of good sportsmanship, good language and mutual respect...I applaud you! So sorry to have missed the fun!

So that's what it was about? Having some best case scenario matches?

Nobody said that. Someone only made the observation that the end result was a respectful game with good sportsmanship all around.

Why is everyone complaining about this? Fun matches or events can be arranged by anyone at any time for any reason with any subset of players. If desired, it would be perfectly plausible to arrange a fun match that excludes admins from playing, if that would satisfy everyone's grumbling.

Hrm, well I think it was a great idea, which worked out really well. So no complaints from me. :)

I missed the DUC match, but was in time to watch the whole GU match. It was really interesting seeing the difference in play style and tactics between the two camps. The GU team definitely dominated in the air (as you'd expect) and on the ground made use of well-known ricos with spread-shots which seemed to catch some Duc players by surprise. Overall the GU team seemed to play more aggressively/attacking than the DUC team - maybe it was all that pent-up frustration at losing in the DUC match :wink:
