Nobody cares whether or not you're on the Euro team besides you. Rather than bother everybody and take this thread offtopic, I suggest talking to the Euro captains about it. And your assertion that you would "show up other euro players anyway" is laughable. The European players want to win, and if they thought you could help them win, you'd be on the team.

Putting aside the fact that you're a sub-par player, your attitude is horrible. Generally the reason we put up w/ jerks in this game is that their skill level is high. You're making the unfortunate mistake of not being good, and being a jerk. Even beyond that, I've heard you complain about ping/lag while playing in the USA, and about trying to play against US players in Europe ("This server is horrible" / "I can't hit pingers"). One of the defining characteristics of the USA/Europe game is playing across the Atlantic, and perhaps you were left off the list for that reason. In any case, I recommend a sunnier disposition, and lots of practice.

And finally, it's worth noting that there are some excellent USA players whose connection/location puts them out of the running for the team. In fact, some players from the previous USA team are absent from the list. Every single one of them has been a gentleman about it, as opposed to your public whining & boasting. Another category in which the USA is #1!

Wouldn't it make more sense to play for your native country Denny?

who are you? and typically the comments made towards thadeuss are british humour that you proabably wouldnt quite understand..fact is i the whole post was a joke, because frankly i dont have the time, nor the patience to play some yanks. Funny how you take everything i've said so serious.. perhaps i should have had [/sarcasm] at the end of the post, perhaps then you would have read it in a different manner.

I think it's scheduled for the 30th Rage, but you'll need to ask Star or Nero.

Actually, Stew is a great lad, bit of an ego at times, but haven't we all?I've known him for years, spoken to him on TS countless times and still don't know when he's being serious or not on the forums or in irc. Something gets lost in translation via text.

In other news I just got a haircut today and I look like Sonic the Hedgehog
except slower...fatter......more Scottish......and less likely to star in my own gaming franchise.

Wow miekhial is so funneh ahehe. Same joke gets old ya know.

I agree with Thad here, you guys do take Stew far too seriously. It's him who laughs at you whilst you be emo over him, rofl.

Anyways, Star has said he has to postpone this game 2 weeks back, so who knows, maybe it'll get pushed back n back like last time. I'll try to see if we can all make this other date now.

Hey there guys..

I have been off the scene for some time, but I am really looking forward to seeing some really good demos that will be made during this.

GL to both teams and have fun!

P.S. Go Europe Smile

Hey so here is the updated list:

5v5 format
5 maps on each server (tentatively L@P and TotalTrash)
Maps: ZDCTF01 ZDCTF04 ZDCTF08 ZDCTF11 and 32in24-4MAP13
Time limit: 15 minutes, no overtime
Dmflags: 283652 / Dmflags2 = 656896 (no air control or gravity deviations)
No spectating will be permitted
Winner determined by maps won; in the event of a tie total flags captured will determine.
Date: Tentatively slated for September 13th, 2009


As far as team rosters go the USA roster has stayed the same. I have received no update as to the Euro roster so I assume it is similar to what is posted above. The reason for postponement was that the end of August is move-in time for college students stateside so we're looking to avoid problems in that area. With any luck this will go off the middle of September.

i really really really really strongly disagree with flags to be used as a tie-breaker.


ok, a week has passed with just one dismissing response from nostar to my previous complaint. here's the deal:

- funebrak joins dopefish and refuses to play, unconditionally. this most probably includes czegi, too.

- every other czech in the extended team (me, gyrossman, titan and spirit_crusader) refuses to play the match with the flag deciding rule. it is crap and when i mentioned it to my friend from q3 scene, he rofled lenghtily.

- me and funebrak are the new co-captains of the czech ctf team, so this is an 'official statement'. it's also in accordance with the politics of the previous leadership that saw agreeing to the rule as their bad mistake.

nero, i know you're trying to achieve something unprecedented with the real euro team and i applaud your effort, but there's still so much flaws... i'm willing to help you work them out and you know it, but right now, it's headed into a dead end.

since nero and nostar both don't remember those times, i suggest they get a clue.


I see yr point. I think that is not an unreasonable change however there are some problems. For instance, which server is the tie-breaking map played on? Additionally, which map is it? And if that all can be worked out, then we're left with, why not just play that one map and let that decide (since as you found in the usa-cz game home server generally wins it's maps). I know that flags deciding a tie will slant the game defensively, but to that I say SO WHAT?

Also I have a clue, please don't suggest otherwise Smile
