Am setting up our next match; will be against one of the Polish teams in our division so the time difference may be a problem. We got owned again by Outlawed yesterday. There are many reasons for this, but the biggest seems to be that we don't have enough practice time together as a team. We are still coming up with class distribution and tactics 15 minutes before the match starts, which is a recipe for failure. I don't want this to be a chore; it is supposed to be fun and help us improve our ETQW skills in general. But I am also getting tired of losing. If you guys think someone else is a better captain I am willing to step aside. Just let me know (you won't hurt my feelings - I know my place in the ETQW world!). But I hope that we can commit to some practice time, with other clan members willing to give up their normal pub time and help us when we practice on the ProMod server. We should also do more scrimming if possible; both BH and Outlawed have offered.

MeatPuppet; is there a way to tell which maps work under ProMod and which are for "normal" ETQW. I can only get Comm Link to work on "normal" ETQW, but it is supposed to be a part of the ProMod map pool. Can you help us on this?

promod maps and normal "vanilla" etqw maps are stored in diffrent folders. Base is the Vanilla folder and etqwpro folder is the promod folder. THey are independant of each other. maps that are only in your etqwpro folder are not accesaable in normal vanilla etqw.

all of the custom maps should work in promod, they were written for promod servers, and they shouldn't be able to run in normal etqw. Of course I didn't try running them in normal etqw who knows they might as long as the server and client have them in their base folder. Radar is the only custom map that won't run on my home promod server. It crashes the server every time I load it. all of the regular etqw maps will work in promod also.
you have to get used to the quirks of changing to a promod map. every time you change to a custom map all the players get kicked and have to rejoin the server, this is something you have to live with, regular etqw maps will work flawless.

They run, but the bots don't play.

I have about 15 custom maps from various sources. I put them all in my base folder (because I didn't know any better). They all "appear" in ETQW and Pro, but some run in ETQW and some run in ProMod. I have not had the time yet to record which are which. So I am confused; Comm Link is the perfect example; runs under normal ETQW but not ProMod? But it is part of the FTML map pool.

Alphabeta i have no problem with you as captain you've taken the time and effort to set this up so thats a non issue for me. But after saying that i didn't realize you were the captain, if your the leader then be the leader and don't ask me what i want to do just let me know what you want me to do, your not going to hurt my little feelings by telling me what to do and what class to be.

We're not losing either we're getting powned. It didn't feel disorganized before the matches it only takes a minute to say we need 3 engis and 1 medic or 2 medics and 2 engies etc..etc... so that was done correctly.

As far as i'm concerned the main problems are 1) very little communication 2) a refusal to buddy up. 3) Some of their players were better than us. 4) You already mentioned this but tactics.

This isn't rocket science, buddy up with someone, decide who that person is before the map starts know what class you are and stick to the game plan. You were amazed at how we rolled them when sin joined afterwards, but your comment "why couldn't we do this earlier" shows me you might have failed to notice that we were glued to sin's ass like white on rice the entire time and we supported each other.

I don't want to make it sound like we had no pairing up but percent wise it was low and i've talked to at least 6 or 7 other people who are really good players and they all said the same thing (just like Mr.Shifty) you need to be with someone. It was still fun, i don't like losing but there is lots to learn from it.

Even when pairing up, you need one person to be the leader and the other, the follower. I think that is the main reason behind us loosing our buddy. We never established this. If you don't do that, then someone is always bound to run off, especially during a fire fight.

Or we could even play with having a three pair group and one sweeper free to roam and kill at will. The sweeper SHOULD NOT be the best player, but rather the second best. This leaves the BEST player to lead the group of three.

Okay so count me stupid but apparently the FTML has a set Sundays schedule which I did not know about. I was working today and so missed that we were supposed to play against FLY at 1pm EST. Ooops. Feb 20th Spring Training starts and I will be busy for about 2-3 weeks. Would someone like to be co-captain of our 4v4 team? I would like to hope to keep this going even in my periods of intermittent absence.

Bankonit, SIN110022, Scooter82, mat2, Loki, smurf.attitude, G4RB4GE , Alphabeta, who can make it to a scrim against NML on saturday, i need to know by thursday please. Mr Shifty said he can't make it but who else can or cannot? Sikici has 11 women lined up and she would like for all of them to get a turn so she's hoping for 6 vs 6. Getting some time in promod would be nice.

Thanks for posting Sikici, glad to see you on the forums. We're a pretty loose bunch over here so no worries about getting trolled.. clown

Just a note: The names mentioned above are the guys in the 4 vs 4 league, if your not interested in being in the league but wouldn't mind playing against the ladies let me know.

We are getting better, but we simply need to practice together and work out strategy for certain maps so we are all on the same page. We are flying by the seat of our pants too much.
