TAMLeague interest

Postby BUDDY » Fri Nov 20, 2015 12:02 pm

Was asked not long ago about possibility of another tam league. Post if interested. Would be pretty straight forward. If interest ~=30-40 4 teams of 6. If interest ~= 60 would be 8 teams of 6. Interest ~= 85 12 teams of 6. Interest ~= 100 8 teams of 10 w/ dev matches. Interest ~= 120+ 16 teams of 6 or 8 teams of 10 w/ dev matches. Depending on player pool will change if its single/double (two groups with own bracket) bracket, single/double elim, if round robin, overall length, etc.

KEA still has a server up, and I can get another CHI and NY for a few months.

Ranking would be based off of pug server ppr or admin discretion.

4v4
Friendly fire on
No handicap
SG mod on

If you need a direct download for ut2k4 pm me on IRC or here.

If they're interested admins would be me lino steel reflex and pater. If you are interested in helping out lemme know.

Honestly this league is just sort of meant as a placeholder until the next ut4 patch comes out. Plenty of people are getting burned out from dealing with its issues, but i definitely don't want people to bail on it. So idle #tampug and #ut4pugs and maybe we can keep some activity going until it picks back up.

Other things will get fleshed out if we get enough peeps.

I'm in. Don't forget to mention that adrenaline will be OFF (like in the previous leagues) to prevent teams with an early advantage from snowballing out of control with invis lameness.

I suggest something like a factions style tournament instead of a league that takes 2 months to complete (where activity always seems to plummet in both 99 and 2k4 when there's 2 teams remaining), except have it over a 2 day period instead of cramming all the matches into a single day. As the only player to win both OwnedWell factions tournaments ;), it's incredibly exhausting to play that many matches in a single day. Play out half the tournament on the first Sunday and the other half on the next Sunday, similar to the UT4 iCTF NationsCup that just happened. Bo3 double elimination with 8 teams makes the most sense.

While the previous TAM league went very well, the one regret I have is not being more adamant about the map list. My personal bias aside, 15 maps is just too excessive IMO. There was a lot of newer players coming from UT99 that felt it was too daunting to learn that many maps in such a short period of time. Besides, quality should always be valued over quantity (CS:GO tournament map pool is a measly 7 maps). That said, we should shoot for 9 good maps.

Previous map list:

DM-Ages
DM-Andok
DM-Campgrounds2004-G1E
DM-CBP2-Achilles
DM-Corrugation
DM-DE-Grendelkeep
DM-Entropic
DM-Goose2k4
DM-OSR-Cheops
DM-PeerToPeer-FE
DM-Rankin-FE
DM-Seraphim2004LE
DM-Signify-FE
DM-UCMP4-Elucidation(NoBuzz)
DM-Waisten-Fix


Proposed map list:

DM-Campgrounds2004-G1E
DM-Corrugation
DM-DE-Grendelkeep
DM-Goose2k4
DM-OSR-Cheops
DM-Rankin-FE

I'd probably sign up. For people that haven't played TAM yet, it's a solid mod and the 2k4 crew is the nicest and most likable community imo. cept northern. he's a fickdace.

I'm down. Evenings after 8pm CT on Weekdays. Weekends usually earlier in the day (before 8 pm as I may head out).

Deck sucks in 2k4, Under sucks outside of pubs, wouldn't mind Goliath though.

I like Structured also but it's too small for 4v4.

I don't think we should have Achilles because Andok is so similar and just plays better.

I also really enjoyed DM-Moov if anyone remembers that, and DM-Saiko - but not the finished version, I think a2 is the one I liked iirc. There's like barely any textures or anything, but the map layout is great.

Fractionary might be weird in TAM, but what about TheOnion? Bring back some other old maps

Probably a good idea to take a poll of all the previously mentioned maps and not allow the results to be seen until the poll is over.
