June 30th or July 1st are the target dates. Let's pick one and DO IT!!!

Maybe we could make it a 3 Clan Match and get the [MTS] gang involved too.

Sounds like fun. I can make it either day, but not before 4PM EST (local) on the 30th, and hopefully not TOO early on the 1st, since I have to take my daughter to visit with her grandparents, and may not be back super early that day.

On a related note- has anyone figured out the problem with the MGI server and lag/packet loss that's popped up lately, Haig? Several of us try to show up there practically every evening, but for most of this week it's been kinda flakey. In my case, the ping seems great, but from time to time the server just jumps from 0% packet loss to like nearly 30% (you just have to try to imagine the great fun rounding the same corner 3 times in a row, only to finally find youself over the edge of a cliff, hehe). On the other hand, Kindness has had it spike to like 2500 ping. Is there something else going on on that server of an evening that could cause its bandwidth to drop periodically, maybe? (Seems like the most likely explanation, given my good ping, and the fact that most of us experience problems at the same time, indicating it's on the server side, and not the client side).

Maggi: That processor rulez!! Mine won't boot into Windows at 952, although I did manage 935 long enough for most of my startup apps to load. Then the top 3/4 of my screen went black, and it hung. It did allow me to do a 3-fingered salute, though. So I guess with the case I'm using now (kinda packed mid-tower) 892.5 (896, according th 3DMark2K) is the best I can get stably.

Hi Ace,

Our entire website is experiencing the same problem. Looks like every half hour or so, something happens to our lines. We have Sprint looking into this but don't know when it will be fixed.

Found an interesting quote on PlanetUnreal about the upcoming UT Patch.

Engine:
- fixed creeping pings problem - especially prevalent with passworded servers
- improved server CPU utilization
- improved prioritization of network traffic for low bandwidth users

Creeping pings? Does that mean pings that slowly creep upward until something bad happens? Especially prevalent on Passworded servers?(ie. the MGI server)
Sounds to me like it's not entirely Sprints problem Haig. It kinda sounds like there is something that either has been messed up all along or got messed up in one of the previous patches.
I geuss we shall see when the patch gets released.

A bit more serious though: I have pings of 150 to 200 on your server, Haig, but don't notice it. It feels like playing at 300 and above. Maybe that's the creepy ping?

I would love to play in a clan match. I am open for just about any day and time. The reason that I have not put the [MU] badge on my name is because I have been watching my stats on the WorldStats thing (they aren't impressive, but they are mine) and the fact that when I venture out into the public domain I don't want to give the clan a bad name. Is it required to play in the match?
Also, if you would set the # of spectators to the highest that it will allow so that those of us that don't play can at least watch, it would be appreciated (not sure how many it allows). -Kindness

ALBPM
28th June 2000, 10:14
It appears that Saturday is the day. what time do you guys want to play???????


Also the [MTS] clan will be there so we need to organize some kind of tournament.

Maybe the first game will be [UBF] vs [MU] and the winner will play [MTS].

We also need to keep the teams even this time. The best way to do this would be to first log on as a spectator at the agreed match time. The last time we had some late comers from [MU] join the game and we had too many [MU] players.

Another way would be to see if we can have three teams playing CTF at once. Is this possible????

If anyone has ideas on how to organize this please post them.

Paul

Snake-Eyes
28th June 2000, 12:32
I don't know of any CTF 3-ways games (yet! There could be a mod, hehe.). But if you'd like we could probably see about doing Domination instead. That's the closest team game that I know about that can do more than 2 teams. UBF could be green, MU red, and MTS blue.

The game plays a little differently though, since you hold control nodes 'King of the Hill' style, in order to get points.

Hehe, just a thought. I may or may not be there, since I have to take my daughter to her grandparents sometime that day. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif

If I get back in time, I'll try to see you all there!

------------------

Pneumatic
28th June 2000, 18:22
Domination is a great idea! For a multi-clan game it is the best option. It kinda becomes a mini DM around the controll points (fragging with a goal, I love it). If the teams are uneven we can move around, or even make a 4 team game. Plus, we can get more people in the game that way!
I like it. Domination gets my vote.

Hey Yall,
Sanjuro from UBF here...sorry to disappoint you guys, but I and our clan would prefer CTF more, first, the point in having this clan match is NOT to see how good one team frags another, but to see how GOOD one team uses strategies...and team work...Domination of course is fun, and I would NEVER Diss UT...coz it's a REALLY REALLY REALLY good game...it's just that after playing Domination a while, it'll turn into a deathmatch, where everyone just frags without really dominating goals...CTF requires more team work and I find it more attractive, hope yall agree

I see a pretty big problem brewing on the horizon. Not counting Sanjuro Makabe, there have been 17 people that have expressed interest in the match. There are a lot of the regulars on the server that have not posted, but they will probably show up. I can see where we could have as many as 20 or more people trying to play for the [MU] side. Should we do something about this, or just let it be first come first served? Should we set up an actual playing team, and backup team? Most of the "formal" clans actually issue positions to the individual players (defense, carrier, carrier support, etc.), so I think at least assigning a team that will play a certain number of games, is not unreasonable. I am not saying that we should exclude anyone, just maybe try to organize to avoid a bunch of people getting mad that they didn't get to play in the match. Just thinking out loud.

We should have a practice session before the match and the top scorers in the last match should start. We should only have as many [MU]ers playing as the [UBF]ers can field.

So, if you log on after the match time which we have not determined and see that we outnumber them please disconect and go to spectator mode.

Maybe we should play for the best of three games with [UBF].....

Also if you are one of the starters for [MU] and are having a bad game. Call out a name for a replacement and go to spectator mode. we can always switch off like that.

I don't know if the [MTS]clan will be there but maybe the team who gets best out of three should then play them for three games.

After that we should open the gates and let everyone play as usual.

Can you please disable the skins on the main server before the game tonite? I've just logged on downloading at a slow speed, and believe me, by tonite, most of us will be pretty angry for the long downloads thus no more game. I hope the game can be as plain and default like before as possible. Let's just have a normal Clan game. There are just too much skins to download. Can you please disable them?
