CHESVAL summer 2012

Post by kierra » Wed Jun 13, 2012 8:45 pm

Chesval: dedicated to Murielle and Surftank
Date: Saturday, June 30, 2012

Time: gather at 9pm gmt.

Place: euro server will be brads, port: TBA
US server: blast's server, port TBA

We are hoping to have as many players as possible join in. Team A vs Team B. Servers being set up for up to 20 vs 20.
Team A captains, alphabetically: az, blinky, jh^, nem

Team B captains, alphabetically: bartleby, D3ad Turtle, T-roy, and 1 more tba when confirmed.

This is NOT US vs Euros, but a combined effort by players in memory of Murielle and SurfTank.
One match on euro server, one on US. Third played on choice of winner of 2nd match. In event of tie, choice goes to winner of first match.
If you plan on playing, make sure you're on the ducati spawn list; if not on, join the ducati site, http://league.bzflag.net and request spawn privileges before June 30th.

Unfortunately I will not be able to make it, but I hope you get the numbers that such a memorial deserves.
Both players were very much loved and respected.

Perhaps server owners could add a server message to promote it.
I'm sure that if people know about it, they'll make a big effort to support the initiative.

Sounds like this is a "pop in and you get to play" sort of deal, correct? Assuming the player counts don't hit 20 on both teams, will the team captains be fairly lenient about the picks? Great thing to do for a memorial event, will be making an appearance.

I have a couple servers up (One may require GU membership to spawn) at tx.bzexcess.com (Dallas, Texas) if people want to see if the lag there is acceptable. That will be the system that will be used. The oh.bzexcess.com (Columbus, Ohio) system will be canceled by the end of the month, so I wouldn't want to chance it getting shut down in the middle of the match. :)

@ sigonas: to accomplish that(make last minute adds to teams) we need to have a person that has the perms to add players to event spawn list present ....on all servers used. I hope that will be the case. @blast: i will test the servers with some others today for lag.

Definitely would like to know how joining a team works. Should we directly contact a team captain?

While Chesval is Team A vs Team B for the sake of matching.....This event is open to all to join in, you don't need a special invite to one of the teams.
Teams will be evened up at the time of Chesval as needed.
This is to celebrate the memory of two bzflaggers who are no longer with us.

wish I could've participated, but alas, I was one of the 40% of central ohioans who lost power, which was restored around 9 pm est today. Tried powering with a car battery, but sadly internet service was down as well, by that time it was too late to try anything else. Just know I really wanted to be there.

you'll never know how badly I wanted to be there...
too bad this won't happend again :(
hmm perhaps....
