I believe this is the right edition of CTF_Haarp, download to participate in this week's WIC. CTF_Haarp follows the mode commonly seen in TFC, one team [blue] has to take the intel and travel it to various "Checkpoints" until they reach the final destination - The other team attempts to prevent them from doing so, each checkpoint achieves additional time.

If you know CTF_Snowdrift, you've seen this mode before.

*thanks Z-95, for putting the the topic up

It was really Ratty who had to leave and then Lordfa who decided to download porn and enter the server instead of just manually downloading the map via the link and properly get in the event on time. Otherwise this shit would have been on time.

BIC next week? or WIC and which map?

its always something though. this is the 3rd time ive waited 45 minutes for this event and I wont do it again. there needs to be a set time, something like 5 minutes from when teams are picked and then if you arent on the server you are either replaced or your team has to play short until you show up or they find someone else.

I thought we established that though. We lock the vent-channel and everyone has to join before-hand in order to download the map and prevent any fucking PP-dropping technique in order to fit everyone in.

Seriously, don't wait on people. Have either the event manager or an admin drop to even the teams.It's much quicker and if some idiot can't bother to show we shouldn't have to wait. I'd say give people till 9:10 to join the server or 10 mins after picks. Any more after that is just a waste of time imo.

We should have people who are going to participate download the map, join the game, and establish who's Captain is what color. When you're picked, join the specified team.

The events lead, if needed, will tell the person picked first, who's team they are on. It's then their responsibility to inform the teammates.

1. We don't know who's participating and some don't know until the very moment or minutes before the event begins.
2. We don't know who's captaining until two people stop pussying out and actually bother captain [Ninja + Someone else].

That's just for starters. That's a lot of planning for a lot of unsure people.

All blame goes to Ratty. We hate Ratty, the end.

No, Lordfa. We have plenty of substitutes, this one just took for fucking ever.

Well if Ratty hadn't left in the first place no one would have had to replace him..

How about this, you have to be on the server to be picked

Just the beginning part really.
Cheers to you then.

Though, the event managers are going to have to be rigorous about this shit.

It's weird how you both misunderstood that post...

The events managers can handle it, I'm sure.
If they can follow my post, it shouldn't be hard.

They do have to remember to change the map and run the config, and now additionally have the server info up to approve who is up for picks in the vent channel.

i didnt misunderstand i just forgot about it by the time i posted. yes, its the same idea and I think its a good one.

how about this: the map gets announced at least 12 hours before the event (heck it can even be right after captain's night) and gets put on the server so people can download it straight from the source and there's even time for a runaround

well i got a message from Z-95 asking me if i was still interested and since i didn't expect to play: I didnt have the map and was forced to DL it from the link Torte posted earlier

as with my shitty luck with downloading maps, it took years for it to download and i had to make way

and to add insult to injury, the map Totre linked to WASN'T the map you guys were using so double bummer

:handgestures-thumbdown: Totre :handgestures-thumbdown:

one for the bad DL and one for that exciting fairy tale about me and my downloading habits

Link on the forums is the same as the one in my comment-URL on Ventrilo which several people used to enter the server.

A download link only really helps if you want to download the map in advance. Once the server is running the map, connecting and downloading that way will be just as fast since the map downloads from the CA webserver and is fast.
