So as you may (or may not) be aware, I kind of disappeared from the Doom community after season 2 of ZCL finished and I haven't been around much, until about a few months ago. Anyways getting the point, I would love to have a third season of ZCL, but unfortunately most of the people who participated have since left and the competition scene on ZDaemon isn't as big as it was in 2014; however it is starting to come back thanks to the monthly tourneys Cecil, Souler, and RoSking are running. So I was thinking, why don't we resume an event we use to do called Saturday Night Priv where we would play private CTF for hours on Saturday night? Perhaps after doing this for awhile, we can drum up enough support and start season 3 in the near future. Souler was even nice enough to donate a server that's located in the middle of the US Very Happy. Thoughts?

ZD used to be the best port for CTF and can be the most fun when played correctly no one has really stepped up to the plate to host ZCL for a while now I dont know if it's because people perfer zd 1.08 or what but I Think starting a priv night at least once a week will be good for the community.

Would be nice to see an updated 2017 wad with some new and old maps ready to go for this (priv/zcl) server. (those other wads are killing me..)

(another extra detail thing in OurHero's world) - In the future dont know if this is possible or not would also be cool to have some sort of CTF EXP System on the master server that's similar to the current FFA EXP. That could show Individual's Points, Flag Captures, Assist's. and then that way players could see how well they compare to others but that will probably never happen jaja xd

Everyone I've talked to so far is in favor of the idea. The main problem is just finding a time that works for most people. Souler suggested 6-9 PM EST, but I feared that it may be too early. A couple of people I talked to seemed to agree with me on that. I'm pretty sure back in the day we did it at 10 PM EST. Perhaps that'll work again?

After season 2 completed unfortunately I got real busy and didn't have time to host it again. I'm sure there's some people who won't play since it's not 1.08 Rolling Eyes, but I feel most would do it again. I just want to make sure enough serious people are down for it before I start season three, because we had two successful seasons and I don't want to taint the league with a third one, if it doesn't go well. That's why I think we should run Saturday Night Priv again and build up support.

This was actually planned at one point in time. Kilgore's been real busy as of late, but I'm sure we'll see it in eventually. We could actually do something like this for a league by making a simple program that scans server logs and compiles things into a database.

Yeah it's definitely a few months away at the earliest, but we're on the right track. Since we started competitions again, there's been a lot more public ctf at night. We're going to start Saturday Night Priv in a week or two also to drum up interest. Things are slowly happening, I'm also starting to see some old faces playing again, so I'm pretty confident we'll see a season 3 of ZCL in the near future Smile

Okay so we just concluded our first session. It got off to a slow start, but we actually had some fun games at the end. Unfortunately, Saturday doesn't look like the day to host this anymore. Souler informed me that lots of people were playing public CTF on Friday, so how about we move it to Friday instead? Sadly, I don't give off work until late on Friday, I'll try to change my schedule, but for the time being someone else is going to have to get this started. I can definitely join in later though. Any takers?

Alright so time for an update! It looks like both the WDL and GFA are either done or will be on hiatus for a while. In light of this and due to the fact that Souler has done a tremendous job in bringing CTF back to this port, I think it would be a perfect time to bring back ZCL! I've pitched the idea around to a couple of veterans and there's definitely interest, though we all agreed we should probably wait about 2-3 weeks so that more people will be around for Summer. This also would be perfect for me, as I'm currently in the process of moving to a new house and still don't have my computer and everything set up just yet. Unfortunately, I don't have quite as much free time as I did for previous seasons, (This will change in a few months, almost done with my job.) so I'm going to need some help running the league this time around. So far OurHero and Alpha have agreed to be administrators, but I think we made need 1-2 more for this season. Basically all we need is someone who is on often and can spectate games and make sure that the rules are enforced, and then upload the demos and screenshots to the website. It's a fairly simple job, just requires a little dedication. Anyways lets continue playing private and public CTF and in a few weeks we'll open sign ups. I'm very optimistic that we'll have a great third season!
