Natural-Selection World Cup!

Announcing a new Natural-Selection tournament: The NS World Cup.

WW3 on a grand scale, this brand new tournament will take place over the Christmas period, featuring teams from around the world.

Countries currently signed up include United States East, United States West, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

Not only is this a chance to mix with the other NS communites and prove your worth as a true world-class player, but several matches will be as competitive as gaming can get (USA Vs. Canada; England Vs. Germany, anyone?)

I don't know about you guys, but I'll be playing NS over the Christmas period in an attempt to impress my country's captain! <- lol that's me! The lesser of 3 evils![/edit]

*Any* country can sign-up regardless of experience: you just need 6+ players and a leader.

Team captains get in touch with M\\ke to sign your country up:

PM: M\\ke on QuakeNet
E-Mail: Mike@nsleague.com

Other players may also want to sign up to the WCNS Forums!

I'll be asking Santa for English victories over Germany and the other home nations!

Raza: If there's no German team then just get 5 other buddies to sign up with you.

And don't let anyone moan at you about who should or shouldn't be in the team: at the end of the day it is just a video game, so it's not like sticking two fingers up at national pride if it's not the strongest 6: any 6 is better than no 6.

BIGbanana: I'd take a guess at 250-300ms pings for EU/Aus. Thankfully, there's 2 maps on each team's server: so it kind of balances out in some sado-masochistic way!

"I'd take a guess at 250-300ms pings for EU/Aus."

If your lucky, and get routed through USA, then it'll be roughly 150 - 200, if your not and get routed the other way round the world, it'll be 250 - 700.

nail on the head

doing 2 maps vs aussie clans, 1 on our servers 1 on theirs, just doesnt work. if it's on american soil (so to speak) its roughly 200 ping for both teams which is something that hasnt been tried yet i think.

we'll find a way to make the pings half-decent for both teams, if it means using american servers, then it will be done

"Pistol and Jump Scripts are COMPLETELY allowed in any matches in the tournament. If however, the team decides to block scripts on THEIR server, then scripts cannot be used on THAT server. Another reason why alternating servers during matches is needed. "

There's a great word I like to use called compromise. Europeans don't like scripts, North Americans do. Do they make a difference? Maybe. But, if I don't allow scripts, you can basically call this a Euro-only tourny because most Americans won't play.

It's not that they can't play, its just that, the motivation level of this game is so low, that people are SO lazy that they won't give any effort.

Therefore, I'm allowing scripts but you can block them, if its YOUR server. Half of the match you will be playing Americans, the other half, to be honest, they won't be playing their best without those scripts :/

25 November 2005, 01:51

Noavatar

Fi weezer

obviously they wont be able to play their best

if you script then mp_blockscripts 1 is like telling you to remap all your key binds and then get used to it in the 5-minute pre-game bunnyhop session

25 November 2005, 02:31

Noavatar

Ca pSyCh0

Well then I'll work out a concrete decision if that's the case.

Personally I use pistol script only, I hate the jump script and I don't use any lerking scripts or crap like that. To unbind my script I just re-bind my Fire button to Mouse1, and if I want to turn it off I unbind my Mouse1 on Fire and I exec the config in the console manually.

Fairly simple for me.

I'll be wanting the UK home matches to be bs 0.

I don't use scripts myself, but I'm aware of one or two who use the pistol script; however it's always been my belief that scripts don't make the player.

no. everyone here uses at most a few simple toggle scripts because guess what? mp_blockscripts is on. oh and if you want a reason why youre noobskilled its because of what ben kindly already pointed out.

There are three types of people in this world:

NS players.

WoW players who spam "NS is dead" on IRC and forums.

People who have to totally quit all aspects of NS to enjoy something else, and spam "NS is dead" on IRC and forums.

Whether scripts are moral to use, the bottom line is that Americans need scripts to play there best.

In this case you have two choices:

1) allow the scripts and play americans at their fullest

2) don't allow scripts and win an empty victory, even if you win without the scripts americans obviously aren't going to play their best

The only reason you wouldn't want scripts is because your afraid of em. If you don't use scripts, great. But you should allow them to be used by others. Really its just freedom of choice.

"People who have to totally quit all aspects of NS to enjoy something else, and spam "NS is dead" on IRC and forums."

I think you fail to realize that spamming IRC and forums and creating drama is an integral part of playing NS, even so much that people that quit playing NS ingame, still participate in playing NS on IRC and on forums!
