So it's like 1 map and then switch mode?
Sounds a bit fast.

Anyway, HYPE HYPE!

Mmh for HS mode yes. For the normal wars it's 2 and for LMS it's 5.
You said yourself 90 minutes of the same mode is unbelievably mind numbing!

(Paraphrasing but you said something like that, and so did some others). :P

Also some tweaks that might be worth noticing:

- During Knife/sniper war the only class will be covert ops.
- During Last Man Standing the only class will be medic.

So after the first day here's some feedback:
- Maps were nicely chosen
- HS mode was probably ruined by knife, grenades, stachel etc. Also a deathmatch map or something might have been better. instead of normal objective map.
- LMS was pretty fun aswell. Maybe leave out the beerrun since it became a bit of a campfest. Didn't really mind the Mars one, but it seemed to favor Axis a little.
- Knifewar as covop was pretty cool. Appreciate it.
- Gun mode might have been good, but maybe change the weapon after a spesific interval instead of after death. Even better, give all players the same weapon at any given time. It might have been the map aswell, but once I got sniper rifle I just killed 20 people in a row and there was nothing they could have done to stop me.

Mmh yeah, that one map we played first was the only one with an actual objective.
The one later on didn't have one and the one tomorrow won't have either. :P

Gun mode is what it is right now because there was a lack of time to make anything else work, and probably won't change for tomorrow, sorry. :D

LMS is nice, but dunno mars was good1, there wsnt much place to hide. I mean too much open space and only 1 building. But ok... :D

HS mode was also very nice. As Goldie pointed, hw+knife+ even hand nade missed the point of this mode. But about obj, imo obj could be ok but maybe when obj would be more dificult to reach. Repairing truck which cant be dameged isnt so hard when your enemy must hit only in head.

About gunmode. Smth in this 1 was bit different compere to last 1 we had ? Switching from weapons surprised me a bit :D
In this form of gunmod map like baserace was bit ... well there was too much open space for hunting with flamer xd especialy when some1 from other side had sniper...

Sniper mod was cool. Like sniper, but some new maps which imo was rly nice.

PanzerWar : i wasnt there :cry: i hope it was teeeerrrrrible and i didnt missed anything :lol:


Sooo, cant wait tommorow for part 2 !!! Very good event :beer: With frequency atleast like today, fun guaranteed :party: :party: :party:

P.s ahhh and Knife War & Shotgun: i was there ! Was very funy :D Nice fun

Firstly I would like to express my gratitude to all of those who were organizing this event. Guy, many thanks!

Feedback:
If it is possible (and I guess it is), there should be disable any explosive weapon during hs-mode (nades, panza, etc.) + poison.
Sniper cool as always, with one exception, Sniper Giant didn't suite me, I really could find you guys :P
And lms was very cool, but after some time, at some maps I got tired :P



Once again, many thanks for putting a lot of effort and organizing this event!

It was a very good event. Well done people.

My feedback:
  • LMS was really good. I'm looking forward for new LMS matches. The only issue is that players only had 30 bullets, which is really few. Plus, there were maps with no ammo cabinets or ammo cabinets that were too far for reach. So the solution is to either increase the default amount of ammo that a player receives (ideally), or use maps that have ammo cabinets near by axis and allies spawn (like Dubrovnik and CTF Halo).
  • Ideally scripts must be tested before hand to avoid any inconveniences/bugs.
  • The Gun Mode did not work quite right on my PC. For example, i was spawned with a panzer with 0 ammo. Maybe because i got cg_noAmmoAutoSwitch enabled? If i remember correctly NQ server can force CVARS on players.

Overall, I really liked the map selection. Publicity was also good as we got new people playing.

Other than that, well done to anyone involved :beer:

Few more things for feedback:

- The Gun mode sometimes gave a panzer with 0 ammo, then shotgun with 0 ammo and finally the proper weapon. And sometimes I fired a panzer once and it went 0 ammo immediately. It was irritating to say the least.
- Sniper maps were okay, with maybe exceptions the cartoon and christmas hill-thing. Both had the problem it was so easy to cross to the other side, and healthcabinets were bit too easy to get to. Those really kill the map for me.
- Too much LMS. Also the infinite ammo was a bit ridiculous for LMS...
- HS mode was so much fun! They way you could find new ways to deal damage without making headshots was so innovative! And Infinite Ammo on FG is so balanced!
- No really cow fix HS mode.

Thanks for the event! Ninja also did a good job troubleshooting.
