« on: March 19, 2008, 04:20:55 PM »

Greetings, I have been working on an OpenArena league for the community to enjoy.  The current set up is for a dueling (1v1) tournament named  OADL, and a  CTF tournament named OACTFL.  The site can be found at http://league.tastyspleen.net .  Click on the OADL or OACTFL link on the left and sign up Smiley
 
Our buddy EscapedTurkey has offered to run servers for the tournament which are located in Texas, USA.  I will be posting news on http://QuakeUnity.com about the upcoming event to help gain some outside interest for the games. I also have a dedicated shoutcaster (commentator) named Jehar who has been doing a great job with the Quake2 Leagues I've done. He will be doing coverage of the OA games and will have all the recording available for download.

The Duel League will run a series of 'round-robin's. What this is: I will set up multiple divisions to house all the players who sign up. The number of divisions will depend on how many players actually sign up. You will play each person in your division once and you will be awarded points for your wins. After each person has played everyone in each division, the top players from each divison will advance to the play-offs where the Winner and #2/#3 spot will be determined.

The Rules are being typed up, it will probably be a best 2 out of 3 for matches in the 'round-robin' phase, and 3 out of 5 for the play-offs.  Timelimit being either 10 or 15 minutes.  Maps are going to be picked through with the help of escapedturkey and his massive list of map choices ( =o ) which there will probably be around 5-10 maps to choose from to play your matches.  I will keep this thread updated with any information that becomes available regarding either of these leagues.

Happy Fragging,

RailWolf

CTF will be 0 capture limit and 20 timelimit.

Servers will be running NoGhost admin mod with Unlagged enabled, no changes to the baseOA gameplay. Smiley

Okay, I'm from Europe, and I never played any league and am rather new to Quake world, but I'm interested by the CTF part.
I subscribed and made a team.
I'd appreciate if people who ever met me on OA, and who may be interested in joining it, can contact me.
For those who are interested, please have an eye there : http://jolie.techa.free.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=48
I know many players I enjoy to play with, and would be happy to see them around that event Wink

You're very welcome pulchr Wink You should come more often on brick Tongue
I just gave a try on a US server today (brutal CTF), it was quite playable (~100-110ms of ping)
I hope we'll have some oa_ctf4ish map Tongue

I'm sure RailWolf will chime on this one. I would imagine ideally, even if the servers will always be the same location, you may want to have a Euro and US team (and other dramatically different location based teams). That way European players will ping the same to the server and same with USA players -- preventing any major offset in pings.

Could even set rules such as -- Euro Team requirements -- must ping higher than such and such ## -- USA Team Requirements -- must ping lower than such and such ##.

Thoughts? Smiley

We need to know which maps you all like for the leagues.

For each server, enable downloads (/cl_allowdownload 1 or Setup -> Game Options -> Automatic Downloading On).

Then /callvote nextmap and check out the maps.

Please let us know which CTF and Duel (FFA) maps you prefer:

FFA Server: 72.5.249.2:27960

CTF Server: 72.5.249.3:27960

Here are the current map rotations on the test servers -- we just want to know maps you prefer for competition:

FFA Map Rotation

CTF Map Rotation

Thank you. Smiley

Yes, I have updated many of the rules for the leagues. Escapedturkey has sponsored a prize for the winners as well Smiley 

Remember, once your form your team for CTF you need to click SignUp... same goes for the duel league.

About the euro teams, we can separate the divisions by country if needed, to preserve equal play based on ping.

Yah, was wondering the same. There is a new poll (right hand side of page) on whether FF (friendly fire) should be on or off:

Thanks Big Blue, nice avatar, you're welcome Wink
(I'll update the post on my forum with a few infos)

I also have questions about the league ...

- What about the date of the league ? (deadline when all players should have subscribed, eventually date of the first match)
- About the maps, I've already played the custom ones you added on ET's server, I haven't played much and in ideal conditions on them (not enough players), the ones I would play if it only depends on me would be : letgo_02, 13vast (or bubctf1, rather the same), bastir, oa_ctf4ish, kellblack, oasago2f2, TeamTemple_q3a. I see nothing really wrong with the other maps you have. I also liked moonstone but it's risky so it's better to avoid. I wasn't thinking we would play custom maps, as it is an "OA" league it makes less sense if it turns back to Q3. The other thing is also most guys playing OA do not know these maps, or may feel reluctant to use non GPL ressources Wink. Chosen maps may also depend on the number of players, LetGo maps are quite small, brings us to next question ...
- For CTF, it will be 4 guys VS 4 guys playing, am I right ?
And a few stupid questions ...
- Can someone leave the game during one match and let someone else play instead ?
- I think there is no problem if the playing members of our team varies from a match to another... right ?

I've tried to play on ET's server, I had about 150ms of ping, I have to get used to it, the fact it's unlagged also confused me a bit.
Members of my team would be european or close of it, but I wasn't against having US guys. As it turns I think we'll stick to localized teams.

I think that's all ... Tongue

RailWolf will answer your other questions.

There are other OA CTF maps, we just don't have them in the CTF server map rotation because people preferred the ones we listed. However, if you have other suggestions, beyond what is in the current map rotation, we'd like to know.

I'm thinking we can have teams compete based on location. That way Europeans battle it out with other Europeans and USA vs. USA. This way, say, if everyone plays on a USA server, they will have a similar ping range as everyone else in the match. Thoughts? Smiley

some random thoughts about maps:

czest2ctf is a great map, but many people dont like it.
its important to have a good balance between space and ground maps.
i think its ok to mix gpl and non-gpl maps, since this is a "3rd party" league ?!


i want to suggest to have friendly fire OFF, it will ruin gameplay
dunno how this is in quake3, but im so sure its OFF

Added the following map rotation -- so you can make a better decision on the maps you want for the CTF server: 72.5.249.3:27960

set c1 "map rjlctf2; set nextmap vstr c2"
set c2 "map cbctf1; set nextmap vstr c3"
set c3 "map LetGo_02; set nextmap vstr c4"
set c4 "map czest2ctf; set nextmap vstr c5"
set c5 "map oa_ctf2; set nextmap vstr c6"
set c6 "map czest3ctf; set nextmap vstr c7"
set c7 "map bubctf1; set nextmap vstr c8"
set c8 "map delta; set nextmap vstr c9"
set c9 "map hal_palindrome; set nextmap vstr c10"
set c10 "map oa_bases3; set nextmap vstr c11"
set c11 "map bastir; set nextmap vstr c12"
set c12 "map oa_ctf4ish; set nextmap vstr c13"
set c13 "map oa_bases5; set nextmap vstr c14"
set c14 "map kellblack; set nextmap vstr c15"
set c15 "map oa_ctf2; set nextmap vstr c16"
set c16 "map oasago2f2; set nextmap vstr c17"
set c17 "map TeamTemple_q3a; set nextmap vstr c18"

ET Duel (Auto DL ON) -- Duel (1 vs. 1) Server:

This is a good server for practicing Duel (1 vs. 1) with others.

http://dpmaster.deathmask.net/?game=openarena&server=72.5.249.4:27960

Please skip to step # 3 if you have already have OpenArena installed.

1. Download and extract OpenArena:

http://turkey.escapedturkey.net/games/openarena.zip

2. If you have Quake 3, please copy your autoexec.cfg from your Quake 3 baseq3 (or mod folder) into your openarena/baseoa folder.

3. Run the game.

4. In the game console (~) type:

/cl_allowdownload 1

Then type:

/connect 72.5.249.4

Server Information

You can also find our server via the in-game browser under "ET Duel (Auto DL ON)".

Be sure to enable downloading: Setup -> Game Options -> Automatic Downloading On.

We are running OpenArena with the NoGhost mod.

The server is running with delag (unlagged) mode on. You should have the same playable experience whether your ping to the server is 50 or 150.

Map List

There is no map rotation, but there are a lot of maps for you to "/callvote map mapname":
