I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread that can act as a hub for all news, updates, and announcements regarding ZD and the community. This isn't aimed at replacing any other threads or announcements, but rather aimed at creating a place where ZD players can keep tabs on what is going on both with upcoming releases and developments within the community, all wrapped up into one easily accessible place. If something catches your interest then there will be a link to the relevant thread/article/release/webpage so you can read about it in more detail.

I'll be posting updates on a weekly basis and hopefully other mods and staff will find this useful as a way of getting the word out to the community quickly about website blogs or issues with no hassle. For this reason the thread will stay locked and only contain news updates so as to keep it from getting clogged up. Players can then comment in the linked threads etc. Hope this is useful Smile

PostPosted: Sun Jun 26, 2011 8:23 pm    Post subject: 2 New clans in Europe Reply with quote

From the ZD blogs:


Two new clans have recently been formed in the past few weeks in the Euro region, [HB] and =LS= .

[HB] is captained by the Czech player Capodecima and already has formidable roster comprising of Dopefish, Bulb, Spirit_Crusader, and Descarthes. Although members are primarily from the Czech Republic, the clan is open to recruiting from any European region. [HB] already has some top quality players so if you would like to talk to them about a try out you can find them on IRC at #HB or alternatively you can post in their clan thread found here: Thread


=LS= has been formed by that horrifically bad player Sniper. Of course I'm joking, we all know how annoyingly good Sniper is at CTF, 1on1, and FFA. As a long time member of the ZD community Sniper has been a member of several of Europe's more notable clans over the past few years. He has finally decided to start up his own clan and if you would like to try out you can find Sniper on IRC at #LS or check out their clan thread on the forums here: Thread


Remember, don't worry if you fail a try out, just get back into the servers and brush up on those skills Wink

Well ZDS is having its 200th edition this Saturday and it looks like it's going to be an incredibly special one. For the first time, a new gamemode previously unseen on ZD will be playable with brand new maps courtesy of some of the community's best mappers. I don't have all of the facts at hand, but I suspect it's going to be a version of domination, a new team based gamemode that should really alter the way ZD is played.

It's all very exciting and I'm sure we'll all know what's going on this Saturday!

Check out this thread for more info: Thread

And have a read at Humanbones' recent BLOG entry on the subject.

The next 1.9 version has been released!

From Raider's Blog:

Quote:
Improved the PiP to show health/armor next to the player's name.

Survival improvements: joins are blocked when the last player dies and before the map restarts. Also, players lose any weapons/items from previous rounds if they remain spectators for over a minute since the map start.

When someone dies in overtime in CTF and DDOM modes, he will be forced to remain dead for a period directly proportional to the time already played in overtime (2 seconds delay per minute played). This is intended to serve as a tie-breaker.

When a round starts in double domination (after a team score), all players are teleported to their team spawns. This is done to avoid camping on the dom. points.

Security and Aiming cameras now work online.



It'll download automatically the next time you log in, if you have any problems download it HERE

Discuss the release in the 1.9 THREAD
