    I wanna play too!!

    Of course I won't have my head handed to me on a silver platter - it'll likely require a bunch of sponges and hefty bags...

    I BELIEVE IN GREATER ACCURACY THROUGH VOLUME!!

    Due to the fact that I am the senior most forumer here (based on sign up date) besides Warren and other select few INF team member, I elect myself as Commander of my team.

    Another idea....

    Since there are many forums regulars and not enough spots on team 2, I think it would be better if the INF team played two maps. When the map changes and the game is over a new selection of forum regulars could play against team on the new map. If people were unable to make it then replacements would be very easy to find.

    Team 2 (map2): Profit, Jackal_FBA, -Lost-, Butch, Cuchullain and anyone else who can make it and wants to play.

    Btw, I have no problem with Darkliege being the commander of the team.

    Well...

    Darkliege it will be pleasure serving for you. I then here by nominate, either Keiichi, MegaMan, Zundfolge or Galaddin as a 2nd in command. By the way I have a Broadband Connection so no slow down here.

    Hey, Abuga, is that place called NSW or something like that? I've been there once... Kinda quiet. I doubt DSL would help much since we'd be playing on servers in the states... Besides, I have ISDN, remember? :D
    Heh I have no head for tactics in Inf yet and I'll probably be spending half my time dealing with the lag so I nominate either Zundy or Keiichi as 2nd in command.

    The only thing that is better than cheap is free :D

    We will be more than happy to host the server.

    I have spoken with Warren about this idea a few times. He could probably come over here and connect to the local net when the game happens. That will let him get around using that 56K connection. :)

    Is it really possible to have 18 people on one team per game?

    There are a few extra issues that need to be worked out.

    Okay, here we go, DarkLeige commands
    Zund and Keiichi can be 2nd.

    Now issues,
    1.Assuming when the game is released, what day and time would the game be held.? I would vote the first saturday after release.

    2. What map/Maps would be used.?

    3. The our team needs a meeting place before the game to gather ourselves to see who is in attendence and so on.

    4. Darkliege, upon finding out what maps are to be played, should discuss tactics and assign roles to each member of the team.

    A suggestion about the number of players.
    If 18 per team is too much then this is my suggestion.

    Break eachteam into three parts. Like Team 1, a;b;c and Team 2 a;b;c .

    Then have each "string" of the team take turns fighting the opposing string...So Team1 a fights team2 a ;
    And Team1 B fights team2 B in the next map.

    Note- Commanders and/or others in charge should be present in each game/map.


    Since Darkleige is leader, He should break down our team into how he see's fit.

    After the Absolute date and Time is Decided, and Final Player list needs to be constructed with backups incase of no shows.


    These are just a few of the things I see needing to be worked out.!

    It's a shame that none of this can happen :(. Just the being as much of the INF team isn't in the states ( Neo for one, no one else matters :p ). Also that UT is limited to only 32 players max on a server. Even then i've only seen very few open servers running that. Some alternatives:

    1. A very rich forumer could fly us somewhere and we could play at some kind of cybercafe(hehe, i heard companies sponsor tournaments now eh! )

    2. Someone could find a very powerful server somewhere in the states that can get to all the people here, and also enough time so that people with crap conns can find a good one ( like me, with my oh so wonderful cable, ohh damn them COX!!! ).

    3. We deal with **** pings =)

    Now, personally i like idea #1. But then again who has that kind of money? It could be fun but then again, maybe not. Many of the posters here, even the regular posters, are under 18 and/or under the age in which they could do such things for fun. I couldn't go to a LAN party, for one. And INF is always better lag free but some could deal with it.

    I am somewhat flattered that i made the list :p. Registering those few days earlier really did make a difference i guess. :)

    A solution...

    Not all the people will fit on one server so the game will be broken down to two 9 vs. 9 games held on two different servers. Then once the map is over the regulars will switch servers to play the other half of the team. This should make it easier on the servers and still give everyone a chance to play against the entire team. One server will be Shan's SG server and the other is still to be decided. Thanks Shan for hosting the game. :)

    To answer Mayhem's questions:

    Yes, I agree that the game should be held the Saturday after 2.85 is released. The time is still to be determined.

    Maps...hmmm....I was thinking one of the two maps would be Extreme Prejudice because of the size. I hear the INF mappers are making new maps for the release of 2.82 (such as Rae's embassy map) so we could wait and see if they would be big enough. We could also vote on which maps are to be used.

    The meeting place to see everybody before the game could be the INF chat room via the Web page or MIRC. The regulars, INF team and reserves can meet in the chat room beforehand for attendance/replacement.

    As for the strategy for the game, since it is a 9 on 9 on each server, there should be 3 patrols of 3 on each team. Each patrol is to be assigned a sergeant that will take the point and lead the other two. Since I have no idea who is skilled with what weapon or their combat style it would be a good idea for people to post their strengths in order for each patrol to have a varied weapon arrangement. Therefore, Dark doesn't have to look after all the regs, just his patrol.

    Yeah, the sad truth is that finding a conveinient time for everyone (taking into account the many different time zones, work schedules, classes, etc) and the sheer problem of getting everyone together and organized would take some serious effort. If this does pan out, I pity the person who has to put it all together.

    Heh, I got no probs with Darkliege as lead. A 9 man team is just about right too, seems to me from all them SAS books I read that they move about in 8 to 10 man teams.

    I got a question for Darkliege but it would be better to see how good his tactical skill is under gaming conditions. Zundy and Keichii would b just great as 2nd in command. Maybe after the match we get to play a little childish game give ourselves some rank based on skill? :D ;)

    Dun worry GF, everybody will get to play - there are just too many of us regulars to have just one tourney. Hope we're up to it. :D

    Well, you do have to take into account the time differences and maybe have 2 matches based on time zones. Anywayz, I won't be very free in December so somebody else might have a chance to play...

    The only thing that is better than cheap is free :D

    well I would have had this up sooner, but they decided to upgrade the forums againwow, I didn't expect that to work :D I love you guys. But as your commanding officer, you are now sh1t! Worse than sh1t, you are maggots on sh1t and you will listen to what I say.

    First I would like to name the members of my 1337 squad (no offense to those who are un133t or those who I have forgotten. Just assume in your dillusional mind that I have forgotten you :D)

    General Bad Mojo (honorary position just to be nice)
    1. Captian Darkliege
    2. 1st Lieutenant Keiichi
    3. 2nd Lieutenant Zundfolge
    4. Sergeant Galaddin
    5. Sergeant MiscMan
    6. Private BrownyMan
    7. Private Farrp
    8. Private Curtz
    9. Private I_aBuGa
    10. Private Goat Fvcker
    11. Private JonnyBoy
    12. Private Jaunty

    I would appoint Mr T but he hardly shows up anymore :(

    I know I know, Mojo or Gryphon or Warren will tell me that a squad of about ten is led by a sergeant, well I didn't want to be a sergeant. I'm too good for that. :D

    Report for duty at 03:00 or when ever INF 2.85 is released.

    Dismissed, Maggots!

    **** ignato, i wish i could play on that team, but being in australia on 56k wouldn't make it a very enjoyable experience i'm afraid :(

    darkleige, i like the raknig system, i hate my rank ;) no matter

    sorry guys, i'm dodging the draft

    i would gladly help as maybe, an offline tactician, drawing up bluprints of maps ETC, but unfortunatly, unless someone feels like lending me cable, well.... i'll go rot with the bots now :(

    Heh, I'd be chewed to bits with my crappy dialup. I'll have to bop Galaddin on the head to use his ISDN :D

    JonnyBoy: If you get to see me in the first place, you better hurry with that shot. Because I can spot that nickel plated sissy pistol from a mile off;)

    while we're on the topic, what are the ranks in an army - generally.

    And whut are them "special ranks" like lieutenant commander and such assigned to?
