Unvanquished Summer Tournament

If you're subscribed to news@unvanquished.net, you might have just received the following:

kharnov wrote:As you may or may not be aware, we will be holding an Unvanquished summer tournament from mid-July to late August. It will be similar in structure to the GPP Summer Olympics organized by kharnov and `Ishq back in 2011. All players are welcome to participate, from both the Tremulous and Unvanquished communities. Make sure to tell your friends about it!

Registration will begin on July 1st and will last for about a week. There will be one empty week you can use for training, and we'll officially begin around July 15th. We already have several groups confirmed, including GT, Pk, and ddos. However, you don't need to be in a clan to participate. You can choose to group up with other unaffiliated players.

Hope to see you there!


It would be nice if we could form a group for KoR and participate in the tournament as well, but that depends on how many people are interested. Post in this thread if you are, and we might just be able to make it happen.

So far, we have the following people slightly interested:

Confirmed?:
Brrrrrrrrrrrrr
DS
Qweefzilla

Probably:
ikusari
Maximus

Maybe (depending on time and day):
Milk
Aaron

Maybe:
Shadow
Rev
Metroidude
retrogamer

Out:
ViruS

----------------
You can stay up-to-date about the tournament on the Unvanquished tournament thread and the registration thread.

Re: Unvanquished Summer Tournament

even if we could get some people together, most of us are so out of practice that we'd suck, and not to name any names but, not many people in KoR were actually good at trem. just look at awoo, he sucked total balls.

I'm assuming that's what There will be one empty week you can use for training is for. That's too soft, Milk. Too soft.

Re: Unvanquished Summer Tournament

and like i was saying "not many people in KoR were actually good at trem"
a weeks training will do shit if you couldn't play to begin with.

Re: Unvanquished Summer Tournament

Hmm.... well I suck at Trem. Remember I sucked balls at even shooting the smallest fastest moving things.

Re: Unvanquished Summer Tournament

granger wasn't the smallest or fastest thing. and obviously that was luck/lag/ping/(insert excuse here)


*edit*
i guess i wouldn't mind joining, but of course it's the time it would happen that effects me as it would probably be american time at 6pm+

Re: Unvanquished Summer Tournament

Maybe I should join KoR.

Contra's dead, and just about every clan I joined was on the verge of dying at the time. I managed to hold contra up for an extra 2 years from its expected death :D

We don't have to be in a clan to enter, we can also enter as a group.
I'm probably the only active trem player here, so I'll be a big advantage, but my aim sucks shit when rifling dretches down, especially with that dodgy data path that our internet takes overseas... (250 msec to america, 350 msec back)

I dunno. Ignoring what Milk said my participation hinges on the day of the week and the time since I have a job. Need more deeetails

Re: Unvanquished Summer Tournament

cmon Awoo, i didn't mean that in an offensive way, you have to admit you were never one of the best trem players.
you're more suited to a coder/leader sort of role.
that's why you're admin and we are your lowly subjects.

Re: Unvanquished Summer Tournament

I'm not offended Malk. I was never one of the best trem players or even one of the better ones. But I had a mean adv. dretch.

Coding is my job now and <3.

Re: Unvanquished Summer Tournament

God. After I read this I went back and played some trem again. I didn't do as bad as I expected I would, but good god did I feel like I was sucking. I will admit though that I ended up winning a extreme sudden death type thing for my team. But I need practice to be anywhere near as good as I was, and if I recall I was one of the best players on the server for my time here.

So.. More details, and then I will probably join in .

Re: Unvanquished Summer Tournament

obviously it would entirely depend on time for me, i doubt people would want to do this at an early time like afternoon.
Ze Americans would most likely schedule it for 7 or 8pm which would be no good for me.

I may, actually. If I remember, I wasn't all too awful at rifling dretchs, and I could handle myself. It HAS been awhile though...

Re: Unvanquished Summer Tournament

lol I doubt any of us would try to stop you virus (except for milk, but milk hates everybody) and I would be glad to have someone who still plays trem on our team

Also, I looked at my schedule, and I go on vacation the 20th of July till the 27th and I have no internet while on vacation, but I am assuming that when they say the tourny will start on the 15th that it won't go for 5 days. That and I doubt we will get very far unless we all start playing. Alot.

Re: Unvanquished Summer Tournament

idk, when i quit trem for 2 years i thought i'd be totally out of practise, but then when i started to play again, i was kinda surprised by my skills cuz i didn't seem to have worsened.
i think trem is just not a game you need to practise for a lot. you might need a few hours of getting used to the engine and graphics again, but other than that i don't see a problem.also, what milk said, we don't have many pro skillers anyway XD

Re: Unvanquished Summer Tournament

haha Hate for real, he was /m-ing me saying "alright, check your pms in 5 min", he joined humans and owned the entire alien team w/ MD and everyone whispered to us "dude, he must be hacking!!!!" n stuff like that. bigping was just like: "i'm not banning him. i know who that guy is"

anyway, we shouldn't think about how well we'll do on the tournament but rather see this as a good way to get us back to playing a few trem matches, like in the old days.

I hope transit doesn't get voted into the rotation, or any of those big-ass maps. My fps really kills me there.

Btw when was the last time you people played tremulous?
