[quote=me]Tremulous is lacking proffesional or duel games. Although I generally suck on AA, in duels I'm about average with my 380 tremendous ping. (And no noobish, I don't have the advantage, you do. And I'm the one with the warping and non-hitting hits issues). Not many people can beat me when they have roughly the same ping or higher than mine, with an exception of Hero, Sparky (On rare occasions, because I dueled him like 20 times), and Ishq/Celerystick.
Basically, I want some duels. I generally don't enjoy games involving md-hall campers though. [size=5pt]*nudges predator*[/size]
I've already done a few games with several people.
Nowdays if I record on FRAPS I'm likely to upload to youtube since I now have unlimited bandwidth (before was 50gb/month only, if my family (particularly my brother) exceeds this, we get limited to so-called 50kb/s [felt like 10 kb/s, still playable with trem but when skype happens on my brother's computer that chops off another 30]) to show off some tremulous gameplay before Tremulous completely dies out. There were somethings I'd love to have recorded (i.e. KoRx gameplay, Arcade mod, Instagib etc.) but most of those mods have died out.
About Me (Some details you can abuse to raise your chances of winning against me!):
-Crappy Aim, although it could just be unlagged as I was actually good at killing practically anything and anyone in the old GPP Unofficial ASIA server with 100 ping
-Loves chasing dragoons with painsaw in GPP.... Literally
-Strafe/Circle jump skills (Can you do strafserie_b with vanilla settings?)
-Whines a lot about campers n unlagged errors
-Generally doesn't hall camp, by this I mean like... I don't stand at the END of a hallway, I prefer to be in close-range combat as humans unless the enemy is a tyrant of course
-Prone to client-side warping whenever someone touches me (Echhi! Hentai! Baka! X )
-A lot of things I see aren't actually what the server thinks what I saw, for example, if you watched my duel against predator when I was dragoon, I used a form of pouncing which deals no damage, but allows me to go faster, but it isn't predicted correctly by the client
-EU servers unlagged, if it does work, I still have to aim ahead about 50 msecs, For america, it's about 100 msecs depending on the location (which is actually more impairing than benifit, especially since I'm still not used to it)
-Knows how to compensate for most ping ranges at an amateur level when I have unlagged disabled due to ping or my option or serverside, whatever the reason
-Sucks at using walls due to my framerate (I'm suprised fraps doesn't take that much fps on this computer, but my normal non-recording gameplay is mostly around 25-30 fps, the fps meter on the top right is actually buggy and reads double the real framerate for some reason)
-Doesn't like camping nor build games in general (which is why I stopped going to high bp servers)
-Has no "low ping servers" where my ping is under 300 for any server in 1.1 except Game Arena Tremulous (~100-130 ping) and skittles, where skittles is ~280 hence I technically *should* be used to the ping issues I deal with every time I play
-I probably know more about tremulous' game mechanisms than you do
Anyway back to the duels and the results:
Predator, my first upload of 1.1 duels
[I win]:*Planned by both me and the other:*
Note: I preferably would like to have as much even ping as possible, but if it requires me to be over 400 ping while you're with 300 ping, I'd probably rather go with 300 ping and you with 50 ping because unlagged "" (Ignore crappy strafe jump
) above 450 msec latency (Ping ~= latency - 50 unless client = hoster). Unlagged's restrictions applies to all tremulous servers with unlagged unless someone out there expanded the number of memory slots for it.
-Rules [size=8pt](Predator is an exception as that has already passed)[/size]:
-Server: We both decide on the server, I'll try to find the best server for equal-ish latency for the both of us but if that doesn't work, just use PkFrag'em or Unknown server as they give ok-ish ping
-Must be unlagged, unless you have roughly the same ping as me within 30percent ping difference
-Preferably one that use 1.1 "vanilla" or gpp "vanilla" gameplay
-No UBP servers, unless we don't build
-Preferably no building and no attacking until 10:00, although building boosters/defence comp/essentials is an exception
-Preferably ATCS, because: Transit gives me shit fps, uncreation is horribly unbalanced, Tremor is buggy on impure servers etc. and ATCS is nice and small, finding each other isn't that hard.
-Flanking each other's backs are allowed
-Retreats are allowed, but your shame will get recorded anyway
-Try to be fair. For example, no md hall camping or tyrants against unarmoured rifles, unless you're going to end the game already.
-The time we organise can be anytime as long as we are both awake. If one or the other doesn't attend, it's not a loss for the non-attending person, we'll just re-organise it to another time. Preferably, I don't organise times, I just have duels straight on the spot. Ask me when you meet me in-game and I'll accept or decline depending on my real-life context.[/quote]
