New Competition : CUP CTF by {G.F.A}

Hello all !

TEAM {G.F.A}, a group of RO2 players since the beta, organizes an event which focuses on having a good time playing Capture The Flag with RO2 fans.

(please moderator add image inside the post)

Let me introduce the CTF Cup, based on our previous experiences with the French Community (Rifles-Only and Countdown Cups).

Teams from any place in the world can register for this event now! Players without group are also welcome!

Basically, the Cup consists of a CTF Tournament that takes place during one day between the registered teams.

The event is on January 27th, and starts at 14h00 (New York City Time, EST, GMT-5), 20h00 (Paris Time, CET, GMT+1)

The downloads, rules and other details with .ini server configuration, are available here:
http://gfa.mateam.fr/CTFCUP.rar
http://gfa.mateam.fr/Cup%20CTF%20-%20V1.1%20-%20English.pdf

Any team that wants to join the event must complete by posting this form here. Each team must have a minimum of 6 players.

Clan Leaders and players without a group will be invited on a steam Group : http://steamcommunity.com/groups/CUPCTF

End of inscription : Friday 25th

Since the event requires many servers, we will be asking for the cooperation from the server admins. If you have one, please mention it in the form.

If you are a player without a group, just post your player name and mention that you don't have a team. You will be matched with other
players to create a team. A Mumble VoIP Channel will be allocated for your team when the event takes place.

Good Job GFA. We're determining who will play, and whether we need a mercenary or not. Within a few days, GrimReality should post the form filled-up. I can already answer to that part though:

Can I loan a server?: YES
Server IP/Port: 74.91.116.132:7777
Location: New York City
Hosting Company: Nuclear Fallout Enterprises
Numbers of Slots: up to 32

I'd like to also submit two proposals for G.F.A.'s consideration:

1) CTF is a very dynamic gametype that requires the ultimate in balance, especially in maps. I would like to suggest that Mad_Fred's Warehouse map be used for the tournament rather than Apartments. Apartments, has some problems with the balance with spawn locations -- they only have three areas to come through, while the axis spawn has many more options.

Warehouse is almost a mirror image in spawns and may serve for better balance.

2) Please also consider that not everyone is a 99 level full hero status with all guns leveled up. For the ultimate in fairness/balance, please consider forcing minimum/maximum levels for all people playing like the Scorched Earth tourney did.

Thank you, and may the tourney be a success!!!

I'm interested but currently lack a team to play on.

Anyone recruiting for this?

We may be looking for an extra man ( or woman ). Drop me a line if interested.

( We run CTF normally on our server )

Hello all !

So i'm going to clarify some aspects...

First we don't change the map which is still Appartement
but now a match is composed of 2 rounds, one in each side.

Second, sorry but we don't put a limitation with level because it's
an aspect of Realism mode that we chose to this competition.


Regards,

{G.F.A} Piriou

You can check the modality in the rules :
Every scrim counts 2 rounds. Each round will be 10 minutes with an overtime of 10 minutes...
Second, sorry but we don't put a limitation with level because it's
an aspect of Realism mode that we chose to this competition.

Okay, thank you!

As long as everyone knows that it is unbalanced, then, in a way, it becomes balanced...

Thanks for letting us know!

Thanks for the ad :D but it would be unfair to put aside the other servers that support CTF. There is a list of servers here:
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/RO2CTF

I try to keep it as up-to-date as possible, but if you see any missing CTF server, let me know.
