Roles?

In my humble opinion, TDM or better still FFA would be the way to go.

TDM evens out the skill a little bit more than CTF, and I think plus there's more variety.

FFA is the best, as Sharpe has been saying. It requires just 3 people and a variety of maps could be played. I remember when Rygrass was churning his FFA maps over and that was pretty fun - to try some new maps. It's not so serious and its basically just a fun filled spam fest.

Maybe we should set a time and just whoever rocks up to play some FFA?

Flame on.

I agree with Revstar, we should get some FFAs going, but with new maps... Smile

Yeah Rev, I'm agreeing with you with this one.

It may be easier to get something simple like ZDS up and running, but like a smaller-ffa/tdm style. But the only problem is the unreliability of Oceanic players as seen in tourneys in the past. Everyone will say they will come on but cant be bothered.

The advantage of having something like this is that its not very competitive, and noobs, not mentioning any names, can play for one game and then rage without it affecting the games as much as it would if it were a tournament, in the sense that if the guy rages after the first game the rest of the members left to play him are left without an opponent, whereas in this style anyone can join and just fuck around in an FFA server...like the good old days.

But like I mentioned, if you guys want me to post a time on the topic of Oceania, I'd be willing to help. And for exclusivity, I can even password a server for you, so it would just be oceanics and overseas players that tend to join and ruin our FFA's by providing cannon fodder

Furthermore, you could have a simple point system for the competitive people.

System 1 (Simple): The number of points scored is the
number of people playing - position + 1

e.g. 5 people played a map, you came 3rd - so you get 3 points

System 2 (Complex): Everyone starts off with 1 point. Points scored at the end of the map is

total of people's scores who you beat (not equal placed) scaled to a point out of 10.

e.g. 4 people playing Andrew (10 points), Bill (8 points), Chris (4 points) and Dave (3 points) are in a game. (Those are current points on the leaderboard)

Result is 1.Andrew, 2. Chris, 3. Bill, 4. Dave

Andrew beat Chris, Bill and Dave = 8 + 4 + 3 = 15 points
Chris beat Bill and Dave = 8 + 3 = 11 points
Bill beat Dave = 3 points
Dave beat no one = 0 points

Total points for the game = 15 + 11 + 3 = 29 points

Andrew gets 15/29*10 = 5 points
Chris gets 11/29*10 = 4 points
Bill gets 3/29*10 = 1 point

Notice that if the result was 1. Andrew, 2. Bill 3. Chris and 4 . Dave

Andrew - 15 points
Bill - 7 points
Chris - 3 points

Total points = 15 + 7 +3 = 25

Actual points
Andrew = 15/25*10 = 6 points
Bill = 3 points
Chris = 1 point

So Chris got an extra reward for beating someone ranked higher than him (Bill got less points than Chris for finishing in the same position).

This would require a mod or admin to ensure screenshots after each game and then someone to update the leaderboard.

Also, I'd have to look at this in detail, but I think that you would have to lose points after a certain period, otherwise if a new person joins in the future, you wouldn't score many points off them, but they would score alot off you.

The points could be calculated at the end of the night as opposed to directly after each round. The rankings could be determined by the overall performance on a night?
