I would think that would be something regarding which you should consult your dietician. :D

Or did you mean to post "Yes, Darq Angel, I would like to play in the scrimmage?" :P ;)

Updated line up once again:

[glow=red]NMEs [/glow]
Dictator
boat
PlayerX
Kumite
Grummun
Puppet
zeop
Silent
HuH
Paradroid
Sandman
Rork

[glow=blue]Regs and $m00thies[/glow]
Darq Angel

Vominator
Bumble
Dark Knight
KaptainSkitzo
Rocko ?
FFT ?
Keldath ?
Obitus ?

eeeek! List is getting rather big here. How many players can the server hold? Still need a day of the week and a time here though. Not many people are here during the weekend so I figured a weekday night at 8:30 cause usually everyone is gone by 10. Maps and day are all that's basically left. Let's finish it up so we can get it rolling. :)

It's set for 20, although I don't know that 20 have ever been on at one time. Weeknight, 8:30, check. Pick the night.

Grummun- I was just saying that I've been regularly playing with NME for a long time(Syscrusher's, Boat's, and your servers), and was kinda surprised my name(in one form or another) wasn't mentioned. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't forgotten. :o
Of course I'd be up for a scrim. Depending on the day and time of course. I'm free most evenings after 6pm(Eastern)....although Sundays are typically a bad night for me(family dinner with the kids).
On the upside, I have a mic(and no problem using it...in case anyone failed to notice :lol: )...and I've been playing a good bit more O lately...although D in still my specialty.

Maps? I don't really care. Just so long as I have it beforehand....twould be kinda embarassing to have to DL it while everyone else is getting started.

Sounds like fun...count me in!
Oh, and for those who don't know.....I'm usually on as either "Ignornant_Florist", or some variation of "Iggy".

TA can hold up to 20 players.

There's few choices we can do.

1. First come, first serve
2. Select players from both rosters, then next time, get different players who havent played yet and pick several players who already played from previous scrimmage.
3. Both choices: for first scrimmage, first come, first serve then next time we can have players, who didn't show up for first/previous scrimmage, play next scrimmage
4. Any suggestion?

What about people who need to leave during a scrimmage? How do we fill in these positions or balance the teams? Also, if a team doesn't have enough players, then we can have NME or non-NME to fill in for other team. :)

Hmmm.. 20 players. We might not have to do all that though. Problem is right now, there's 19 people... and 12 are you guys. :P I havent heard from those few smoothies yet so I think it's safe to say that we can scratch their names off unfortunately. :( Unless I can find three more players to balance the roster of 10 vs 10, which I might be able to, then we're gonna end up having to steal some NMEs off your hands so they can be regs for the night... hehehe. :wink: It might not be a bad idea though because of the fact that everyone will get to play instead of taking the intervals between each scrim. So then we'd only have to find one more player then we can get this thing rolling. My opinion, I want everyone to play so I like the second game plan better.

If people leave during the scrimmage, as you said we can:
1) Balance the teams out by sending NME or non NME over to either side or
2) Play as the teams stand and don't worry about it unless there's a drastic change in players.

Last thing in this post and you cant stop hearing from me for a bit.
Day: ?
Time: 8:30
Maps: ?

Should we lock the server and use a password for this, or keep it open gameplay and free for all if someone happens to join up with us? Btw, kaptain, I was the one making the list but I haven't seen you around for a while. I didnt want to be rude and throw you into the list without hearing from you first. Sorry... :oops: :cry: I'll post the list up again soon once we can get the last person and figure out the maps and day. I don't want to pick a day out of the air and inconvience anyone so, pick one guys. Any other suggestions about anything? :angel:

Depending on when we set this up for, I should be good...but Rose and I got tickets to a local comedy club(no, I'm not performing)...$15 to get in, but all we can drink for FREE.
They're gonna regret that one. lol.
We're going either next Friday or Saturday...I'll let you know when it's decided.
Also, I've been having a problem with Comcast here lately....I lose my connection. It looks like I'm still on the server, but I'm not. I might actually need someone to "kick" me if this happens, cuz I don't think I can rejoin if it thinks I'm still there.
If I don't announce an "AFK", and you don't get any responce from me...then it happened.

Sounds good, if somebody doesn't show up on time, then we just have to balance out and have a great time. :)

I asked Grummun about the password. He's working on that one and will let us know soon. We can post the password here for the regulars & NMEs to join us. :wink:

Wednesday? Also, I think we can have few extra scrimmages on friday or weekends to get darkknight join us if possible

Alright everyone, this is the final list right here:

On the red team...
[glow=red]NMEs [/glow]
Dictator
boat
PlayerX
Kumite
Grummun
Puppet
zeop
Silent
HuH
Paradroid
Sandman
Rork
T-Bone

On the blue team...
[glow=blue]Regs and $m00thies [/glow]
Darq Angel
CheapShot
Beer
Vominator
Bumble
DarkKnight
KaptainSkitzo

Day: Wednesday nights
Time: 8:30
Maps: monkey_l, schtop, well
Password: chubbybuddy
Rules: 3 CtF maps, each 30 minutes in length. The maps will change every week so if you want a certain map, post it. There might possibly be a 2 minute prematch mode prior to each map due to the server being set to scrimmage mode. Friendly Fire IS on. Server will be locked and password is required. Footsteps are on.

Pretty obvious that we'll be stealing 3 NME per round since there's 13 of you and we all said we wanted everyone to play at the same time. Sorry guys... :P Let's ge this server jumping and above all, have fun. :) Cya on the battlefield. :angel:

My only question about this is:

Are we using standard Pub-server rules(anything goes)? Or some sort of league rules? (ex: No OvO, no potshooting, no yard D, etc....)

I prefer the former....but I can live with the latter.

Well, we're playing for fun and show good teamwork, just like the way we play on TA and ol' EC1. 8)

I agree but I have asked about this few times and nobody talked about it. I assume everybody knows better than doing some potshotting, yard defense, etc.

it doesn't matter if others like it or not. an opinion is what was asked for, so just give it. if no one speaks up, then everyone just assumes. if everyone speaks up i'm sure an agreement/compromise can be made.
