About respawn time I think 5 seconds is fine too.June 7, 2012 at 12:02 pm #972
And obviously TK shouldn’t influence spawn timesJune 7, 2012 at 12:09 pm #974

+1 on that.
I just created this topic: http://fear-community.org/forums/topic/ctf-tournament-prize-pool/
If someone wants to start ^_^
I will donate, but idk If money or a FEAR 3 Game is best, It depends on what others donate, keys for all the players in the winner team would be nice, but only 1 maybe notJune 7, 2012 at 6:32 pm #989
I completely forgot, but facility is also a CTF map…

A great CTF map at that!June 8, 2012 at 12:00 am #995
I like the idea of having set maps for each round and the tiebreaker. No complaints.June 9, 2012 at 8:53 pm #997
Sorry that I am not here much at the moment but I have a lot of work on at the moment, what with that and running RAW, I am pushed for time but will try to get here more.
First regarding being in more then one team, the whole idea is absolutely absurd, not for the fact that someone would have three chances of winning, especially if there is prize, although I can not see how that would be fair, the biggest problem you would have is the amount of resentment there would be from other players especially from those losing. We are trying to build up the community and build bridges so it’s best not to cause any animosity. I have no problems with members of RAW being in other clans but we don’t allow them to be in any clans that play the same games as us, it can lead to far too many problems which we don’t need, I think the same would apply here.
I don’t play CTF much, we are a TDM based but as far as I can see there are a lot of settings that you haven’t covered such as auto return times for the flags, the flag carriers speed etc. or will these all be at default values?
With regard the the Fraps issue, I have quite a high class system now, but and only in FEAR, I can really tell when Fraps is running so I now use PlayClaw which is really good and I can’t even tell it’s running. Maybe we could use that.
I have to agree with the posts that say this should not be about prizes or money, again that could have a negative impact, this should be all about playing for the love of the game not greed! The answer must be not to offer money or prizes including games. The simple solution and one that should appeal to both side of this argument, is instead, each of the four winners get a nice trophy. Who wouldn’t be proud to have one of those on their mantelpiece at home! RAW would quite happily put something towards this.
Just my ten cents worth. I’ve marked this section Notify by e-mail now so should be here more.June 10, 2012 at 12:22 pm #998
Yeah, all other settings will be the default values.
Playing in several clans is already covered too.
About everybody recording, no I don’t think that’s happening. would be almost impossible for a lot of players to record the matches AND even harder: to upload It. Remember, most of the world have 1Mbit or lower connection speeds ( for download, upstream usually is 0.25Mbit or lower ), unlike people in europe that has up to 100MBit … so my vote Is to don’t record.
About prizes, It was mean to be something that made players want to play, but we don’t want to have people play for the money. I haven’t got a single dollar for the time I’ve played or worked on FEAR, and have been countless hours/day/week/Month/Year, and I know anyone else currently working on It has, so yeah I share that feeling.
Now, If most Teams agree on having more symbolic Prizes, like:
- 1st, 2nd, 3rd place in Torunament
- More Flag Caps
- Higher Score
- Most Kills
- Best Ratio
And to publish these titles in the page and I can create a custom badge we can give you to use wherever you want. We can even do what Rebel said, a trophy!
Waiting on some feedback on these open issues:
— a) No
— b) Yeah, symbolic
— c) Yeah, bring me the money!June 10, 2012 at 6:52 pm #1000
I think we sorted out the prizes issue, there will be games, can’t give more details atm, but they will be games. check the prize pool topic.June 21, 2012 at 7:25 am #1063
Have been a bit distant here lately and for that I apologize, had a lot of stuff happening and travelling everywhere. I have just finished reading through and just wanted to verify that the server settings to be used are:
1x remote bomb
1.3 run speed
12 minute time limit
Some other stuff:
Will these servers run all the time 24/7? Or just when needed?
what will the server name be?
passwords to join? If so how will we communicate this?
General server preparation before a match,
- Should there be an allocated area so it doesn’t get messy if you know what I mean?
- Contacting the hosts? What will be the best method?
Just some questions I thought I would put out there.
Everything looks great!
Bones.June 21, 2012 at 2:01 pm #1064
@bones You are correct about the server settings.
The servers should run 24/7 to try to accommodate the scheduled matches (times will vary)
Not sure what the server names will be as of yet, so that is a very good question. I have a server in the UK already set up for the tournament I called it “TSK tournament training”. I will change the name when we agree on a name. I believe MXT and RAW are also donating servers but I’m not sure how many server will be available however I know we are currently trying to stagger them around the world for ping reasons.
The passwords will be given to the captains of the teams when the matches are scheduled to a server and its location. The Team captain will give the password to the rest of the team. (When you register your clans or teams we need contact info; example xfire, steam something like that.)
Thanks for the questions because these issues need to be resolved soonJuly 2, 2012 at 2:49 pm #1135
Hey if you guys do the ctf prize thing thats cool.
ill personally put up cash for a 1v1 tourney …I say lets up the ante…
ill drop 100….relax kids…if you dont have the money you can still play….
as long as you drop a lil sometin like 20$…we can tally up the cash …..winner gets all………
just my 2 cents………
signin out cya later everybody.July 2, 2012 at 5:18 pm #1137
Well the thing is, we don’t want people to be too desesperate to win, It should be something fun, mainly the opening CTF tournament.
The 1v1 ladder might be a different story though. I think we can decide this by vote, so people can say what they want ^_^
