Strange way to write my first message on the board...
For the presentations I'm a little grunt who likes the Zod Engine. I follow the updates, I play it a bit and I like to record some games.
I indeed don't need to present the Zod Engine here, just a few reminders before I get to the point : the latest update "10-16-10"
has four players maps, an eight players map, AI that behaves... correctly (now avoiding projectiles) and so on. Also the latest news is that FreakNigh will take a break
. That means this update shouldn't change for some times.
During this break I'm hoping to convince people to have a little tournament. Mostly to test the game, to show appreciation for FreakNigh's work, for me to record it and of course to have some fun.
Right now I mostly expect two to four players, so basically find a date and time to meet on the server, then around three or five matches either on 1vs1 or 2vs2 with one point for every fort destroyed.
Yet if more people want to participate we could organize different dates with semi-finals and if really people are motivated then we could conclude the tournament with the eight players map.
Well, actually we're most likely to use the five 4-players maps as they are the one running on the server right now. Maybe FreakNigh could change that for the occasion but who knows...
And no, no prize but the game itself, I'm only the spectator here.
Anyway, if you're interested I would like to organize it - simply - if possible during the month of November, friday or saturday. With a few time for participants to test the maps (it depends on FreakNigh but right now the server would oblige us to play the five 4-players maps) so let's they the 19, 20, 26 or 27th of November ? Any of those dates and at any hour would be fine by me.
If you could pick what suits you best...
I hope that you will like the idea, granted it's amateur by an amateur. The best would be that when he returns to coding FreakNigh will have had people playing it's game thoroughly.
