Well the EuroPuF tourney went ahead yesterday on [Ci]'s clan server The Slaughter House (unreal://132.229.149.55:7777/)
Despite starting approx half an hour late and although people kept having to leave, reconnect or not being able to play because of their ping and/or lag we had some very good games.
The [VI] Village Idiots were Red and [SWATSD] Snow_White and the Seven Dwarfs were Blue.

NOTE: The Demos I made are up, but for some reason the link is b0rked. I'll get 'em up as soon as possible

Lava was the first match.

Coret was up next.

Last but not least we played Orbital.

All in all the [VI] (The team I played for) lost 2-1. Anyway it was just for fun and i can't speak for everyone but I enjoyed myself and think it would be great if we could get another one of these together in the future.

Good Games Guys

Yeah, it was a load of fun :)

Too bad we lost though. Hmmm, I might have to get rid of the newbie tag, the 'getting-people-to-totally-underestimate-me'-trick might lose it touch soon ;)

Nice playing with you all, hope to be seeing you around.

Whoops, I didn't see this thread.
I was to fast again. Well, I delete my thread and post here instead.

Hey guys, it was all fun.
We were many with ping problems in both teams, but I think and hope we all had fun.
I hope we can do something similar in the future.
As most of you already know, team [SWATSD] won the match with 2 - 1.
For you who don't know, SWATSD stands for Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs.
gramps, our leader, was Snow White of course. :D

We can still meet up in #Europuf and from there join an empty server together and have some Euro games. :)

You who took screenies and demos. please post them here.

A special thanks to SU who let us use his server and to Prophetus, who was "watching" over us and restarted the server when needed, if we not where ready to start playing.

Yes, great games and attitudes from all players. I enjoyed watching you all play. It was amusing at some points. One time was in Lava and ten seconds left. Blue had the flag and the carrier was running around inside his base, waiting for the blue flag to return. At abound ten seconds the blue flag returns. The flag carrier (who had the red flag) had on jump boots. He jumped up to cap the flag but missed the ramp. He did this serveral times and pretty much got irritated and ran out of the base, especially with only 2 seconds left. I was rolling.

Good games. Hope to play in the next one.

I thought it was pretty funny on Lava, at the start where I went to assist Azmo, who had the flag. He dropped it, i don't know wether he died or was low on health but I grabbed it an dodged straight into the lava. D'oh

Swedix
30th Oct 2000, 08:44 AM
Hehe, I confess, it was me. I can understand that it must have seen very funny, but it wasn't at that time. Now, I can laugh about it.
I was suffer from lag and packetloss and I had hard to see where I was. Very frustrating.

30th Oct 2000, 09:10 AM
it was fun guys. too bad everybody seemed to have bad connections (read: insane pingspikes) that evening. :/

anyways, i had fun and if there's a next time, i'll be there. gg's all. :)

The match..............


CTF-Lavagiant
I have only played the last minutes on lava so I didn't really see the match.......the red team was playing really defensive and we were playing mostly freelancing.......we lost this one with 1-3.......... :(


CTF-Coret
I have played this one.....red was playing extremely defensive and only Xenex came to get our flag now and then........we were,on the other hand going to offense.....

The strenght of their team was their tight defense......ours was amped flak.......... (I received a new title from some of the enemy teammembers:'Amp Camp Champ'.......I feel honored............) :)


Rizman and The Duke were defending their base quite good........but Darkie and I still managed to cap one flag each...........that leaves this match won by SWATSD with 2-0 :D

CTF-Orbital
Another one I played.....(of course..If I play,we win);)
This time we were both playing with the same strategy........both very offensive freelancing.......


Azmo was really showing his skill and we had Morgan defending......they both killed a lot of FC's
Raptor also played quite good,considering his ping.
I made 2 caps,and I think the other's were made by Gramps and Darkie........I don't know who made the cap for the enemy........

That means we win with 4-1 :D

I really like this screenshot........I'm the person who's waving........

SWATSD won the europuf tournament.............!!!!

There were some problems..........2 people didn't show up and other's had connection problems............the games were a little laggy.....especially in lavagiant IMO......
(Revenant was incinerated......again......)

VICTORY IS OURS!!!!!!

Uhm, IIRC I capped the flag at Orbital. If not, than I am mixed up with a pre-EuroPuF game on Orbital earlier that day... damn, I really dunno if it was the EuroPuF game or another one, looking at the scores it must have been Azmo :D

Well, lemme know if it was me or not... *lol*

Maybe if someone has a demo of Orbital we can see who capped it for us.

Let the mystery be unraveled ;)

XeneX, I saw that one. I was spectating from your view and you were backing up Azmo. I was like..."Why did he lava dive...doesn't he know it hurts":).

This should be a regular fixture (?)

As I already said in the othet thread I had a more or less good excuse for my absence yesterday:
[copy-paste]
Here's my apology for not showing up yesterday:

I upgraded tzo my new PIII-750 on Saturday and everything went fine until yesterday! Suddenly my computer was completely - and I mean completely b0rked!
On bootup BIOS didnt find my CD-ROM. Windows didnt find my soundcard, graphic card, SCSI host adater, registry b0rked...
And I spend the whole Sunday getting the thing up again.
Windows is a llama bitch. How to intall the drivers from CD when the drive doesnt work?
Now it is running somehow again, but I'm fed up with computers now.
Note to myself: computers must be female
[copy-paste]

At first I tought I'd make it to the game but the computer did not run until midnight.
Looks like a lot of fun and t looks like you found replcements in Morgan and LK. Next time I will definatly be there.

Did our 1337 name and the dwarf taunts confuse the enemy enough?

XeneX
30th Oct 2000, 10:08 AM
Duke: It WAS Azmo who capped on Orbital.

Proph: I know now :) Ouch

Inf: It would be great if this was a regular fixture. You can count me in guys.

TheDuke
30th Oct 2000, 10:56 AM
Okay than!

I already thought it was a pre-EuroPuF match :)

Thanks for clearing that up ;)

Nope - that was me :)

My ping really sucked throughtout all of those matches - 600-700 and i coulnt play properly at all (see my score - i was bottom on each match) :mad:

We need to have another match, this time when everyone has a decent ping -- 600 steadily is just unplayable(all uk players had this ping problem, most of whom didnt play :()

This kinda screwed things up, as two of our team members were unable to play properly. On the other hand the player's attitudes were great, and all the matches were great fun :)

First off: Great games guys. Probably the funniest and most exciting games I ever played in my short UT career. I really enjoyed it. It's much better to play with guys I know, than with any others on a random public server.
Though we lost this match, I really -and I mean really- don't care. For me (I think for anyone else too) this wasn't about winning or loosing. It was the fact to be there, to have fun and have a good laugh at [SWATSD]'s funny keybinds :)
Congrats to everyone for these great matches, despite the fact that some of us had really high pings (e.g. I had 150 on Lava and Coret but almost constantly 900 on Orbital) However, that doesn't matter.
I hope we can do a re-match soon. I will be there. Count me in.

Well spoken, Riz.
I think you talk for us all.

I'm glad you guys got off your asses and made this happen. Looks like it was a lot of fun.

With any luck, maybe I'll be able to play one of these things sometime. I guess I'll have to arrange some thing where I have to be allowed. Maybe a "People who signed up in February All Star Game". LOL.

I'm glad it wasn't a slaughter either way. The scores show it was a close matchup, making it exciting for both teams.

Nice games :)

I must apoligize to the [SWATSD]-team for my lousy play, you guys must've expected better from me :p.
I will not blame it on the fact that I had to play through 56k :). Rather I blame it on the fact that this weekend I was in Antwerp, and thus didn't play UT. Specifically I went out the night before, and became quite drunk, not reaching my bed untill 5 am. Therefore I sucked :p.

-SU out :D

That explain why you were running around in circles. ;)

Azmo
30th Oct 2000, 04:00 PM
Yes XeneX, I was indeed very low on health (I had about 15 left). So I figured it would be better to give the flag to you, because you'd have a better chance of making it back to our base.... next time I'll take a gamble and keep it myself :D

These were a fun bunch of games, even though a lot of people had connection/ping problems :( We should definitely do this more often. We could just hop onto an empty server every once in a while (which hardly ever happens nowadays :()

well I know a sollution to the ping problems :D
Next time we're just going to play on the [CLAN] server (much better pings from what I've heard) It's a hired server from http://www.gamesinferno.com .

Ofcource if you want you can test it:
213.27.4.40:27600

pass = beer

Also we're still looking for CLAN members.... you need to be good though :D

The best players in this tourney.......
This is just my opinion......
Everyone who has played in this tourney.....post your opinion.........!!!!
Just compare the skills in the games they played(whole games that is......Swedix and I joined lava in the last minutes and Lord Of Lag reconnected in Coret)


-Best Offense Player:-----Azmo
-Best Defense Player:-----Morgan
-Best Freelance Player:---The Duke
-Most flag caps:----------Don't know

1st Nov 2000, 06:01 AM
You're being serious there? Wow! Didn't know I left that good of an impression :)

Well, that's hard as I aren't too sure of the Dwarfs anymore (names were SO confusing ;)).

Best Offense: Revenant (esp. on Coret, ouch!)
Best Defense: --- haven't been up front too much --- If Morgan was defending than I vote for Morgan...
Best Freelance: Azmo (way to go captain! :D)
Most flag caps: No clue! :)
Most flag kills: Dunno...

Anything else that can be added?

Once again, it was great fun!!

:( I am sad that I have left the clan scene.

Darkie
1st Nov 2000, 05:55 PM
Hmmm well I find it very hard to tell who was best in what considering I did mostly freelance and couldn't see what everybody was doing all the time. Also telling who's best is always very hard.

In normall cases I'd say the one with the most points wins, but not everybody played 3 times, so that one is out.

I know on Coret Duke gave me the most trouble. After killing 4 defenders in a row, he is the 5th who managed to shoot me down all the time @^%#^@%#@^#

But then again, Morgan defended like Crazy on Orbital! whoa. Therefore it's impossible to judge this one. Sorry :/

Have a good one!

[CLAN]Darkie aka Dopey hehehehe

Darkie
2nd Nov 2000, 03:53 AM
btw: How many defenders did you have on Coret??
It was like going through a wall there :D

XeneX
2nd Nov 2000, 05:39 AM
Damn you Darkie! Your the only one who beat me points wise on Lava, but by an impressive margin at that.......:)

On Coret I think the whole of [VI] was defending, except me and at some points Azmo. Thats prob why I got such a low score, your defence rocked!

I'll say it again, Good Games Guys!

TheDuke
2nd Nov 2000, 06:12 AM
Well, I tried attacking a couple of times on Coret but to no avail so I decided to stick to Defense but in an unregular way... it worked quite well :D

Well, I dunno how many attackers you had but after killing three and feeling good another one came and fragged me... you guys just kept coming there and Raptor had such a crap ping (he had to attack) he couldn't attack which left us with 4 (1/2) players ...

good point, when is the next one ?

Swedix
2nd Nov 2000, 09:17 AM
If we can use TSH again, we could do it next Sunday, if Sundays is a good day to do this.
Or else we have to look for a server we can manage ourselves.

SU, if it's ok with TSH, I think You start a new thread where ppl who wants to play can post.

SU3000
2nd Nov 2000, 09:38 AM
I think sundays will be difficult, as Ci has their league matches then, and we might want to use tsh to warm up/stay warmed up.

Swedix
2nd Nov 2000, 09:51 AM
So, if we do this on other days, which day would be best?
If we can start 8 pm GMT, it wouldn't be to late before we finnish.

Darkie
2nd Nov 2000, 10:57 AM
hehehe on Lava I was freelancing + attacking soo that could explains all the points :)

As for the server, [CLAN] has a server also.... perhaps it's best we check out the ping and see wich one is best to play on.

IP = 213.27.4.40:27600
pass = beer

Are the more peepz who wanna join?

Darkie
2nd Nov 2000, 11:00 AM
btw: For me I can play anytime... accept thursdays

Swedix
2nd Nov 2000, 03:07 PM
If we can use that server it's ok for me.
I was tested the ping and it was ok.
BTW, who own this server? When I joined to test I was asked to leave. There were 2 players in.

RizMan|PuF
2nd Nov 2000, 03:41 PM
I can play everyday in the week except on Fridays and Saturday (I like to go out some times)
Just post a new thread were I can sign up :)


And let the fragging continue....

Darkie
3rd Nov 2000, 06:00 AM
The [CLAN] leaders own the server.
Clan leaders are:
[CLAN]Darkie (that would be me)
[CLAN]Highlander

Ofcource it can be possible we have a 1 vs 1 fight sometimes, that you can be asked to leave ofcource. (nothing more then normall i'd say). But that happens occasionally. Usually we have a spirit like: The more people the more joy! :D

We had a trainnee yesterday so perhaps that was the case. :D

Have a good one!

I sent an email to Bigfoot of Barrysworld about reserving a server. He will respond soon. If he says yes, then I will need a date, time, maplist and total players.

I'll return once his response arrives.

Oh, one thing...Sundays and Mondays are reserved for official matches. So please pick any other day of the week, outside of Sunday and Monday.

Swedix
