New Years Event - December 30th

Postby Dr Zoidberg » Sat Dec 16, 2017 17:48

Image
On Saturday, December 30th from 19:00 to 21:00 GMT+1
Celebrate the end of 2017 with some good old ET fun on PS!

Timeslots are still preliminary and can change. I do have a wish to make them both shorter (15 min intervals) and a greater focus on Last-Man-Standing varieties.







Schedule:

  • 19:00-19:15 - Sniper war
  • 19:15-19:30 - LMS normal
  • 19:30-19:45 - Shotgun war
  • 19:45-20:00 - LMS headshot
  • 20:00-20:15 - Normal
  • 20:15-20:30 - LMS shotgun
  • 20:30-20:45 - Panzerwar with less gravity, possilbly LMS
  • 20:45-21:00 - LMS normal

Updates on maps and schedule will be posted in the thread.

Event was awesome! Nice amount of players!

Also never played that UJE panzer Grotto map, but it was a perfect map for panzerwar!

Glad you like it Pompi =) And thanks again to Ninja and Cow for making this possible!

A bit of feedback for my own future reference.
#) 15 min for panzar- and shotgunwar was perhaps a bit too excessive. A bit too intense and a bit exhausting =) 15 min sniperwar seemed however fine.
#) Shotgun with Bucket-map is great, but map will ofc only last between 5-10 min due to map-logic.
#) Average time for LMS seemed to be 2 min with approx 16 players. (LMS headshot perhaps 3 min). Need to adjust the number of rounds accordingly in order not to be too far ahead of schedule.
#) Goldendunk was a too small map to play with 16 players.
#) Lots of LMS seemed to be a success!

Please feel free to add your own feedback to this thread

I think all modes were liked by everyone. One mode I missed was the Gunmode ofcourse :)

Yeah you start with knife I think when you kill someone you get luger/akimbo, when you kill someone with luger/akimbo you get mp40/thompson and so on.. I think the last weapon is Mortar and when you kill someone with the Mortar you win the game.

We played it sometimes in events, and actually think it's invented by someone from us. (someone help me?)

EDIT: I think this was the last event we played it: http://www.prime-squadron.com/viewtopic.php?f=91&t=12119

And actually I'm thinking, we really did played it at an event more recently? (someone help me?)

EDIT 2:
What I also like to say is that the schedule was perfect:
19:00-19:15 - Sniper war
19:15-19:30 - LMS normal
19:30-19:45 - Shotgun war
19:45-20:00 - LMS headshot
20:00-20:15 - Normal
20:15-20:30 - LMS shotgun
20:30-20:45 - Panzerwar with less gravity, possilbly LMS
20:45-21:00 - LMS normal

-Starting with sniperwar is good because when it gets played in the middle of the schedule or at the end the people might consider it as boring because we would have played more 'active' modes before and people would disconnect.
-Also panzerwar at the end is good because it's attractive to players and they will stay on server after event ends. (LMS after it was nice because people were used to it and did know better how to play it)
-Normal war in the middle for taking a small break and smoke a joint/sigaret. (and I don't think goldendunk was too small, I think it was a wise chose by bringing also some fun (jumping in the basket)).

So the schedule was very good. Maybe next event adding the gunmode at the end, because it may take longer than 15min.

So yeah this event was very good and I give it a 9.5/10 ! :mrgreen:

So one round was 2 minutes and whole map around 8-12minutes? Adjusting the number of rounds isn't possible as such (always 4-6, according to some logic, if my memory serves), but it would be possible to play one map twice (8-12 rounds) or two different maps so it would be closer to that 15minutes intended.

Made by Egg, there was some problems with XP loss during the first try. Not 100% sure if it has been fixed since, but I think there was some different version as well (just random weapons).

Didn't have time to play myself, but it was great to see so many players on the server during the event. Good job planning the event Zoid! :)

Sounds like fun! And indeed seems like a finale-map for an event! Do you have a good map suggestion for this as well Pompi? =)

Aha, I thought the rounds was set manually. Perhaps best then not to plan to excessively =) there is always the possibility to restart map like we did in the end (!selectmap X).

I think Egg solved Gunmode, though? I'm 99.99 % sure, as I recall adding a few maps for it in the past events.
Buuuuuuut, very nice to hear it went really well! :mrgreen: Good job, Ninja and Zoid (stop thanking me, I did legit like 3 % maybe).
