    OK, you might want to come up with a tie breaker for group elimination. I think the World cup uses goals for vs goals against?

    I suggest the same. Kills for vs kills against.

    The amount of people that advance from group play is subjective. Something can be worked out no matter how many you allow to advance.

    How many do we have? 20 would be nice, 4 groups of 5. πŸ˜€

    Sounds like a nice idea Deathbal, we could do that.

    A couple questions:

    1. I notice that the tourny info says “no mod”, does this mean that we will be playing “no mod” or are we playing the “MCB mod”? There are differences: like the economy, no bbms in MCB mod, and no Ebos in MCB mod.

    2. How are we going to control random noobs (not Bandit :wink:) from joining the games and messing them up? Passwords? Or will it just be a two person game (which a noob could still mess up if they join b4 one of the players)?

    One more question: How are we going to handle players getting kicked? Normally this wouldn’t matter, but since these are 1 vs 1 games, I think we should agree what to do before we start playing. I’m fairly sure that when one player gets kicked and then rejoins, the game will restart.

    Maybe, if the kick is before round 5 (the midpoint of the game) the game would be re-started, and if on or after round 5 then the winning player at that point would win? Obviously if a player is getting badly beaten and “mysteriously” gets kicked in round 4 or if someone is barely winning in round 5 and gets kicked this would cause some problems.

    Any way we decide will cause some controversy I’m sure …

    I’ve noticed that the eject bug can be reduced server-side.
    By changing the Windows priority in the Task-Manager from Normal to
    High. It has little effect on over-all performance of other tasks, but
    lowers kicks dramatically.

    I’m sure that gavin may have never found this to effect him since his
    server is dedicated, and not windows. So it’s time-slices aren’t shared
    the same fragile way…

    cant hurt. also in case its useful: outer, if you intend to play yourself on the same machine youre hosting on, you should probably set a frame rate limit for the client. 30fps or something.

    when someone gets kicked and only one other person is playing, the game usually advances all the way to the 10th, one map at a time.

    Two suggestions.

    1. If someone is winning 4-2 in the 7th and one gets kicked, start over and skip to the 7th round and keep the score in mind. I guess you could recreate the score if you wanted to.

    2. Have a spectator. So if someone gets kicked he can join. This way only one round is lost. If your lucky it won’t need to be made up. But if it’s close, it should be.
