    People are already joining up! 😀 😀 😀

    Pending any bug fixes or patches that might happen, and the time gavin needs to set up an official server, the tournament is ready to go. Gavin, will you have any issues with adding the server for us? I know you have your hands full. 😛

    Shouldn’t be a problem.

    as i’m prone to do during my boredom at work (either working or not) I have a few ideas for the tournament that might be fun to explore. would appreciate some thoughts

    sandhogs: the new deadly weapon. if possible should there be a mod or fix for this issue – to inculde a price increase? or should there be a point penalty for being the player with the highest ratio of sandhog kills. 😛

    lasers: the new pee wee weapon. should there be a quick mod to change the hurt value of the laser? or a bonus point award for a kill with a laser 🙂

    Prizes: I have at least one prize that might be fun to give away, a Play Station 2 game system memory card with nearly a full set of cars in the garage for Gran Tourismo 3 (I personally won each car, no cheats 8) )
    Well, perhaps a certificate would be more fitting 😀

    As I said (read as: whined about) before, if it’s a no-mod game, then the rules shouldn’t be any different from the stats server rules. 😛

    Point well taken, not considered a whine in my book. 🙂
    have you noted that there are a couple non-mod changes made to the tournament already? in addition to the tournament scoring rules and win rules.

    Just want to know what people prefer to do. there has been alot of dislike for the new sandhogs so… and there are non mod options we can go with if people really hate them. As I realized last night, with sandhogs nearly as effective now as a funkybomb, the cash race is all the more important, as the one with the most Fshields will survive the baby sandhog onslaught the longest. I have a feeling that the consesus will be to change the sandhogs back to the way they were sometime soon (not that gavin is “required” to comply, but he has said he is willing to do that)
    Should that happen, I would not consider this change to be actually a true mod, more like shieldtest.

    In any case I will not be making even minor changes to the tournament rules unless its by popular/majority demand.

    well, in this case, there is no mod. Please read the rules 🙂 Irish is just a bit overzealous for the small wep mod 🙂

    THE SCORCHERS CREED

    This is my tank. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me my tank is useless. Without my tank, I am useless. I must fire my baby missiles true. I must shoot straighter than the enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. My tank and I know that what counts in war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, or the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit.

    My tank is the key to my survival. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will keep my tank clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other.

    Before Gavin I swear this creed. My tank and I are the defenders of my hillside. We are the masters of our enemy.

    So be it, until victory is mine and there is no enemy.

    basically its whenever gavin has time to set it up. Gavin will hopefully leave a quick post whenever he puts it up 🙂

    Even if its not up till Friday morning or something, its all good.

    In any event, we need to get a few more ppl to join up, or being the first one there at the server will be lonely 😕

    Everyone please encourage ppl to sign up for the tournament this week while you play

    once again we have a slight attendance problem. there are fewer joined than there were votes for interest in tournament 🙄
