The WASP Clan has been having a series of mini themed matches over the past 4 Sundays. We now turn our attention to an AfterShock Fest on Sunday, 20 May at the AS*Fun Server in Milan (Northern Italy). But first, this Sunday, 13 May, we will play some beautiful maps using an old and interesting Mod called Alternate Fire.
A few attractions of this old Mod is its better horizontal and vertical control physics than baseq3/baseoa, its support of Return The Flag (one of the best CTF game types IMO along with Urban Terror's Capture and Hold), and its use of an alternate fire for each weapon, as well as, alternate powerups.
This will not be a huge event and, in fact, the information will only be posted at this Forum. I am simply hoping to attract a few extra players who like to try different things.Details

Accuracy: You get a bigger, meaner crosshair. You WILL nail anything inside of it when you pull the trigger.
Vitality: Your max health becomes 300, and you can get up to that with normal health pickups (25's and 50's).
Speed: These boots will double your speed! Near the end of the powerup, however, they weigh you down like lead.
Hologram: Is that a player, or a hologram? If it's a hologram, you had better find the player in stasis and take him out before his hologram stomps you!
Vampiric Health: Both the mega health and the small health spheres alternate with two sizes of vampiric health. If you have one of these the attacking player takes the damage he is trying to give you. Hilarious.Secondary Weapons: In the "Control" menus, under "Shoot" you will find this option directly under the "attack" binding.
Liquid Metal Protection (gauntlet): When you are firing, you are impervious to splash damage, falling damage, and 1/2 of all other damage.
Flares (machinegun): They have a somewhat slow trajectory, attract homing missiles, and set off proximity grenades.
One-shell Shotgun (shotgun): One shell (like with deer hunting). That's all. You fire more quickly, and ofc it has virtually no spread. If you can aim, it's better than the primary attack in many instances.
Sticky Proximity Grenades (grenade launcher): They stick to walls, ceilings, and floors, and blow up whenever an enemy gets too close.
Homing Missiles (rocket launcher): Keep your opponent busy with these while you either run the map or attack him with something else.
Lightning Web (lightning gun): These can fill up a hallway and make it nearly impassable for 20 seconds, or until the creator dies.
Radius Rail (rail gun): Think of this as a normal railgun with a wide radius that can cause a lot of pain.
Orbiting Plasma (plasma gun): Launch a few of these if you want to keep your enemies outside your comfort zone.
BFG Overload (BFG): Sort of like the Redeemer in Unreal Tournament. Run like hell.
