Sounds sorta kinky. I bet pigs all around europe are trembling with fear that ETR might be near.
Fragfest 4v4 is nice and refreshing. For the first warsow TDM tourney, its been going quite well. Very high-skilled action. In the future it’d be cool to have the occasional 4v4 one-day cup. Cuts out a lot of CB crap of server searching, worrying about the opponent having 4 and waiting weeks in between games.
Did anyone see the tutorial videos that Science and Industry has upped?
Really nice. Warsow could really do with the same. Nice way to demonstrate the gameplay mechanics.
We should have weekly amphi cup’s. What a great way to relax ingame. I think that too many people get uptight when playing intense warsow duels, amphi is a nice way to chill out.
What about having an all-star 4v4 once fragfest is concluded? Directly following the final or something. Have a nice night of warsow exposure on live streams. Could organise a CTF all-star 5v5 followed by a TDM all-star 4v4 followed by a showcase duel on each map.
What about having some individual community awards for people to vote on? Biggest contributors to the community, best aim, best movement, best attitude, favourite llama?
If a game that appeals to the [hardcore of the] hardcore community is to gain players from outside this subset it needs a very friendly + helpful community. Resources need to be there so that players can pick up the game easier, regular tournaments need to be there so that they can guage their progress and there needs to be evidence of a real community spirit. I see too many people who get uptight with the game, aren’t willing to give new players the time of day and the lack of a unified community.
Although things look quite good for the future. Warsow has a wiki that will only grow, bamboocha has been running very well for a long time now, tide+hoshi will probably organise some more team-based tourneys, warsownews.net is looking sweet [wish I could remember my u/p or post anon!] and currently the community numbers seem quite stable.
Oh, and don’t forget lovesow!
