Well unrated, sometimes the skill comes and goes. You just have to make sure you don't overdo it. But I agree about the map preferences. Some players are just better at some than others. Not sure why. I think I prefer the more open area type maps, or ones that I can vogon-strafe jump properly... Oh this is the reason I prefer the regular tourney4 instead of the pro, because I don't have to correct for having that big gap on the top across from the armor. :knight:

So everyone who is interested could post a list of maps they would play on, there could be tournaments for each map. That might be too complicated in keeping track maybe... or maybe even use the tier system that the single player uses.

It's no problem, we can run additional server for this, but i suggest other admins get involved. I will take care of technical aspects.

If you guys are going to do this i suggest posting that you want to participate and desired map rotation. that way we know who is coming and the most popular maps so we can make a map rotation for this. Also is this going to be INSTA or FFA? These thing need to be known first.

make everyone play from identical computers, allowing only app configurations in a LAN party scenario and you might have a realistic tournament. otherwise, i can already tell you who would win.

And this could be done with a Punk Buster Script. We could make it so you can't even change simple things like FOV. If any guidlines for rules are needed post them here.

no. no its not.

if i cant use fov then i wont play. in order for my comp to run this game at anything above 10 fps i have to turn down resolution to 512x384.. fov is set at 118 to make it playable

seriously, i can keep up with ag quite well in insta (as long as i dont get frustrated lol) using a 400mhz cpu, 8mb video card and a 1.5mb internet connection.. what are you complaining about?

lets not get too serious here guys, just a tourney for fun. my suggestion would be having a couple days of just 1v1'ing eachother to get some practice in

craij does have a point though.. FFA or INSTA it doesnt matter the really good railers will rise above. i know ill only be using rail.. its really all i use these days.

maybe we could have 2 tourneys.. like a regular one, anything goes.. and one with rail disabled. i think that would be interesting and level the playing field.

There is a difference in insta vs ffa. For me in ffa I use the rocket to move around but in insta that option is not there. Still vogon is too fast (maps are too small) to jump in but even this isn't a complaint.

But since this is a sign-up type thing, what about custom maps? I know other players have brought this up before, but this might be a good opportunity for those who want customs. A lot of customs are not made for tourney so keep that in mind.

I hear they also have to take reverse steroids to slow them down even more.

i'll be surprised if this even happens

everyone will argue about how to dumb down the settings and which custom maps to use then not show up for it
