    Latest Deathball League just wrapped up and teams are starting to get reorganized for another go. DavidM and company are backers in a US/Euro league at http://www.deathball.net/db-league/

    There is an American league forming right now as well. Reach that one here: http://www.americandbl.com/

    There's always room to join existing teams there, but the main reason I bring it up is to see if there's any interest in ressurecting our BuF team. Would love to field a BuF squad again!

    Hi Imaginos,

    i used to play DB a lot, but havent recently due to lack of pubs and no clan to play with. We've played some on pubs together, and if you remember, i suck. lol! That being said. i'd love to play DB competitively.

    I would love to have a war against you guys :p
    I'm in TEZC, we finished 3rd and 4th with our DB squads.
    Deathball 1.7 will be released soon and with a new gametype called Tennis. I am the coder of that :p
    Here are some old old old screenshots. Version 0.3 can be downloaded here, but you need DB 1.6 to play it. Version 0.4 will be added to DB 1.7.

    DeathBall will be the first mod I DL when I get my hands on UT 2K3 just because of that Tennis gametype. Looks very fun.

    Oh, yeah. Hi, I am a n00b to these forums, and to PC Unreal. Hope they both welcome me with open arms. ;P

    I still play Deathball almost every day.

    We should bring back the BuF team. I was never on it but I would like to be. :)

    I have a far better connection than the one from when I was in BuD. But I haven't really played since 1.5 was released. :(

    You better play DB while it's version 1.6 !!!
    In 1.7 they have killed all the fun stuff like pass shooting, self volley pass, reduced volley power etc. Instead of reducing that terrible on-line lag they ruined the gameplay. :(

    Oh yeah I love playing Cube over and over again so people can volley to themselves off the wall and score blistering goals without actually utilizing any real skill other than to exploit the hell out of volley.

    Overall DB is an awesome gametype but I wonder if in the course of its evolution it hasn't tweaked itself to death. I'll wait for 1.7 and see.

    Outstanding

    Normally I wouldn't attmept CPR so long after death, but this is BuD, so we're not very worried about the brain damage that normally occurs within five minutes of cardiac arrest..

    Kidding aside, I'm glad to see all the names that I thought slipped off the face of the earth. There's some tough teams out there that have had quite a bit of time to recruit from the best of the free agents on the public servers. We'd be up against brutally competative teams that have sent a few rookie squads back home to mama - never to play deathball again. I'm hoping we can get together enough enthusiastic players that we can play through the season and have a good time, win or lose.

    So come one, come all!
    All interested BuF'ers (and future BuF'ers too), get a hold of me via pm, email, IM, or stop by my place for a cold beverage of your choosing. We'll get everyone on a list and see where we can go from there. The old BuD channel is a bit dusty, but we can slap it awake once we need it.

    DavidM - danke for the heads up on the league team registration deadline.

    roflmao, 1.7 isn't even released yet, so how the hell do you know? :rolleyes:
    Don't say Beta because betas suck and the final is much changed.

    I would play, but DB lost it's fun for me when BuD imploded, mainly due to RL things of the few members. You guys carry on, it's a great thing, but I doubt I'll be involved.

    I think we should hold a small pickup game to see if this is what we really want. I mean, to see how much work would be needed, and to decide from there where we can go. Just a thought :B

    Yeah, but I've wanted to come back home to BuF for a long time. I held out on joining any DB clans until BuD had completely stopped twitching. Real life killed it, and it's taken a lot of my playtime lately too. Hopefully that will slow down soon.

    It's also been a while since BuD, and new blood might be just the thing. We sure could use a little presence on the international scene - bring a little class to the game too. ;)

    I'm all for a pickup game! That's about how I survive.. my hours are such that it's my only option.
