Order of games
It's still smoother for the operation of the whole evening if we run the Racer first. Not everyone likes playing a lot of the same game all at once (Far Cry top gun, then straight into the Raw War version), plus Wayne needs the pizza time to make sure everyone understands how the V8 servers will be run. It is important to know that the host will be instructed by Wayne to click START when everyone is finished the race and he's taken a screen dump. If you're not in the lobby and clicked ready when the timer runs out, the next race will start without you.
Wayne has always aimed on RAW WAR being finished by 11:30 so we can be gone and quiet by 12. Five minutes in between maps in Far Cry should be plenty plus I don't think we'll need a full 90min for racing.
Next Lan we will probably run a "Collisions On" server and a "Collisions Off" server and see how many we get in each. That way people can choose their own destiny. If we fill one up and there's more want to play that style, then we can change the other one to that one, citing popularity. Alternatively we may run an A and B server.
Any AI cars will be on the lowest skill, to keep the servers full. More cars, more fun.
The type of cars to be used will be for the whole night (easier to calculate points) but Wayne will draw it at random on the night as a surprise.
We will run 3 large assault maps of 15 minutes each way (max 30 minutes).
It is imperative that you have the full map pack available BEFORE the RAW WAR starts.
We will trial punkbuster turned off so as to reduce the lag it causes. Remember that the rules prohibit cheats of any kind. Don't
Points per server are now worth double the number of people in the server. So if there are 4 players in the server the winner will get 8, second 6 and so on.
Comments and Complaints
If anyone has any complaints, please see Wayne personally or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org If people can only complain in secret, then Wayne won't give their concerns any weight. Likewise if you have any helpful comments on how we can improve the tournament then please talk to Wayne or Tim.
