A voice from a far has asked me to spread the word of the starting IDL season. Sign ups can be found here.
Remember, Signing up doesn't guarantee you a spot on a team, but you're entered in the draft; It's all in the first post. Official site is currently here. Hoping to see a good turnout.

I'd expect there's a lot of players seeing this who haven't played in an IDL season, so I'd encourage them to read the rules before signing up.

This season is supposed to be less experimental, but I'm pretty sure that the summer season will have more variety. If you have a real problem with it then you can talk to the folks in #IDL in irc.oftc.net, though I don't think you'll be changing anyone's mind easily.

This is one place where you push it with that rhetoric of yours. The "ZDCTFXX" are the maps which haven't been finalized in the schedule yet, and we have more voices in the administrative panel of the league who are making the final decisions on NEW maps to be played (which include 32in24).

Your ideology is also flawed in that you are always looking to complain about something. On one hand you complain that everyone plays d5m1 and zdctfmp1-3 but when say, things like ZDDL get a YES SHARKY--A NEW--ISN'T THAT WHAT YOU WANTED AND PREACH FOR?--map like LazM4 voted in (by the players, I may add) you still complain about it in some way or another. I'm sure when this IDL season has a few 32in24 maps you'll come up with some more garbage to say.

In closing, this will be by far the best IDL CTF season, and the format has been proven to work for about half a year or more now. The signups and participation speak for themselves, so to put it lightly Sharky, I'll say this in the nicest way possible:

Maybe it's time to stick your nose elsewhere Smile (for lack of more suitable terms).

I'm all for variety, but untested maps shouldn't just be put into competitive play. It's true that some times it's easy to identify good maps, but that's not always the case. For instance, last season ODACTF map02 was expected to be received well, though many players hated it. Also, the league has its survival to think about, and unfortunately fewer players would sign up if random maps were thrown in. Sucks, but there you have it.

yeah... i'm hardly suggesting random maps get thrown in but it's the same tired argument as with the competetive duel maps. they're only recognised as such because they're what people have always played.

anyways i'm not gonna argue it anymore here. and ok, i apologise for 'misinterpreting' that placeholder thingy you have on the site. can't understand what could have made me do that Laughing

ok, lemme get it straight that i didn't suggest that one because it's recent but because of involvement (at various levels) of many IDL faces and would so be more likely to be considered. also as Goat says, you can pretty much instantly tell with those maps if they're hit or miss.

Chaindude wrote:

this is possible.
but as far as the Lazarus thing goes then yeah it was ridiculous that in the eyes of the ZDDL there was not a single worthwhile duel map produced in the whole time between DW5 and Lazarus. so yes, while something fresh (that's right, 'fresh', not 'new') was admirable to see then it was still a very skewed state of affairs.

sorry but if people come posting it in the ZD forums and with a name as absurd as the IDL (while only representing a very small part of the Doom CTF scene) then you make it my business Smile

Sorry cybie- you lost my vote... You're the one always promting new and exciting shit- IDL is new AND exciting. wtf is your problem? You would have been fine if you hadn't said it was the "International Dwango League". That's a pretty rude thing to say considering the player base of the IDL and considering that IT'S THE ONLY THING THAT'S FRESH.

Chaindude said it lightly- but fuck off if you're gonna be a dick.

I think the "International Dwango League" was the "ironic" thing he mentioned in his earlier post. Just a joke from what I could tell.

This is an actual simulation of what happens during a typical IDL game:

IDL Is pretty exciting and I believe is one of the few "serious" competitions worth playing on Zdaemon, so if there's any player who considers himself a good CTF player I encourage them to sign up to this season and prove themselves as top players within the Zd community
