View Full Version : Euro fragbu

3rd Jul 2003, 05:23 AM
The FragBU event is typically american, and thus is pretty harsh going if us Euros want to get to it... so.

We really should look into the idea of building up some euro event, it'll be handy for us all for some nice play. All we really need is a nice server which could happen with the return of TCR and some people to take on some responsibility to arrange things.


I was thinking it'd just follow the normal FragBUs, good maps on a vote, no silly things like adrenaline, IG or random pubbers, possible voice comm during the game and something more rewarding than standard pub play.

Imo though the maps may be custom in places, like a league edition of chrome which is just *more fun* than the original.

Do we have the interest?

You can count me in. Seeing as I don't play in a clan at the moment, I'm starting to miss well organized games.

3rd Jul 2003, 07:49 AM
I'll show up. I'll play a 300 ping...it doesn't matter to me.

What times (U.S. or the Colonies as you brits like to say) are we talking about here.

3rd Jul 2003, 08:39 AM
Huh? Colonies? I think that's more of a thing that Americans think the Brits say, but they don't really ;)

Good for you, edhe, and good luck. I think a Euro FragBU would be HUGE for the community!

3rd Jul 2003, 09:05 AM
I'll be there :minigun:

Oh, I miss the Euro Tourneys we had back in the old days. :(
There were a lot of fun.

3rd Jul 2003, 09:17 AM
i'll play, but only if the teams are about even. if there's anything that was annoying about the old Euro Tourney's it was the unbalanced teams.

3rd Jul 2003, 09:39 AM
To those that want a time idea - this is just a 'would you like' kinda thread. But to be sure, it'd be around 9+CET, that's about 3pm EST, and what would fragbu be if anyone weren't allowed to partake in the BuF fun? :con: ;)

Who else had a server? :x

Days, times ideas?

Weekdays or weekends?

Hmmm, I guess then you guys don't have "Tea and Strumpets" at noon either?

3rd Jul 2003, 10:41 AM
I think 21:00 GMT - 22:00 CET could be a time that fit most players.

I would prefer playing on weekends since my wife won't let me out pub'ing anyway :D

if there's anything that was annoying about the old Euro Tourney's it was the unbalanced teams.
I can't remember anything about unbalanced teams, but I do remember the first tourney that was played.
We played as "Snow White and The Seven Dwarves" , with you gramps, as our captain Snow White. I also remember that we won :D

:lol: WTF is a Strumpet? (and I think it's a Crumpet... I could be wrong... I still don't know what it is :confused: )

LOL, watch Dumb and Dumber.

3rd Jul 2003, 12:36 PM
Of course, Tea and Strumpets all the way ;) Although Coffee tends to be more the drink of choice now (cuz we are lazy and tea takes too long to make :lol: ). A nice cup of Columbian coffee, black, 3 sugars = heaven :D

i'd hit a efragbu :)

3rd Jul 2003, 06:31 PM
id hit it too!

3rd Jul 2003, 07:24 PM
I would go whenever I was able to.....which wouldn't be that often more than likely. I can barely make it to the aFragBU :p

We prefer the term 'Ladies of Negotiable Affection' ;)

I'll be there :minigun:

Oh, I miss the Euro Tourneys we had back in the old days. :(
There were a lot of fun.

Damn straight. Weren't they on a tuesday evening (maybe a weekday evening and some time over the weekend).

If anything I'd like to see (really good) custom maps, I can jump on a server anywhere and play face ffs.

4th Jul 2003, 07:48 AM
Sounds fun, i will try to be there :tup:

10th Jul 2003, 06:19 AM
I'll be there :).

TCR is very playable at weekends, and it can be set up by yours truly, once the maps are on.

I suggest people start making maplist requests.

wireplay map pack.

10th Jul 2003, 07:54 PM
I think you'll get plenty of players especally considering that it will be afternoon about time when everyone gets home here in NA.

I have only one thing to really say. We need to keep things standard. What the north american event is doing should be the same thing going on in the european one. This should include used mutators and maplists. Webslinger has pretty much been in charge because it's his server. However now we're changing things with another server, and another server admin comes along with that. We have a good thing going and part of that has to do with everyone recognizing webslinger as the final athority. It should stay this way.

10th Jul 2003, 08:01 PM
Hehe.. for the non-clan people ;).. the wireplay pack includes CTF-Diffidence, CTF-Progressivesteel, CTF-Bollwerkruins and CTF-Arrakis.

Bollwerkruins (http://www.beyondunreal.com/dl.php/nalicity/ut2k3ctf/ctf-bollwerkruins2.zip)

Arrakis (http://www.beyondunreal.com/dl.php/nalicity/ut2k3ctf/ctf-arrakis.zip)

Diffidence (http://www.unrealplayground.com/maps.php?mapid=2517)

Progressivesteel (http://www.unrealheaven.com/downloads/ut2003/maps/ctf-progressivesteel-le1.zip)

As for other maps...

Deepsprinta (http://www.unrealheaven.com/downloads/ut2003/maps/ctf-deepsprinta-le105.zip)

http://www.unrealheaven.com/downloads/ut2003/maps/ctf-gauntlet][.zip <--- Gauntlet][

Perhaps some maps like Romra, Mythos, Hightech, Apophis, Deathtrap, December2, Extortion][, Drunklet, Unearthed, Lavagiant and ElectricFields.

I don't know how many maps we can upload, these are just suggestions though :-).

11th Jul 2003, 02:40 AM
TWD 'we' don't have to keep things standard. The main difference with TCR is that it'll be running ttm, it's better that way, both server admins agree. It's available at wwwplanetunreal.com/ttm and if you *do* have it, then there's plenty more servers for you.

Casc's gonna set up serverside redirection and compression of dls, so that will help, but i don't know if it's working or not yet. When casc gets his maps finished they'll be on there too ;)

This could start tonight, so keep an eye on.

11th Jul 2003, 04:51 AM
how about BW servers?

11th Jul 2003, 06:06 AM
Oh btw.. I meant December2, made by DiM.. there's another one but DiM's map is better really :).

edit.. I'll be there in case anything kicks off :).

I'll be there if you let me know the day and time in advance.

Make sure to turn adrenaline off if you want to have the slightest change of getting the teams balanced. :)
