Let me begin by thanking NoS for what turned out to be a truly memorable scrim experience. Thank you for giving the new rules a chance.
With time evos off the aliens are under greater pressure to get kills. NoS had a great early showing and caught us with our pants down.
After the scrim we discussed possible solutions to the [round 1 draw = map draw] dilemma, and this is what we came up with.
Soccer points system.
Two maps per scrim
Two rounds per map
One round win = 3 points
One round draw = 1 point
One round loss = 0 points
If at the end of four rounds the result is a draw, we move to the equivalent of penalty kicks, that is to say 1v1s.
Depending on the size of the scrim the number of 1v1 duels would change.
For example a 4v4 = four 1v1 duels. If the duels result in a draw then we go to sudden death. One final duel to decide the winner.
We discussed the duels as either Helmet + Shotgun vs Goon or Helmet + Rifle vs Mara, with balanced terrain.
This is by no means set in stone, we are simply looking for fun alternatives that keep true to the spirit of tremulous but still embody a competitive spirit. Please discuss.
@romdos Thank you so much for accommodating us. I do hope that increased clan activity and scrims are a part of your vision for a revived tremulous.
@dGr8LookinSparky I apologize for saying "no one asked you" in response to your map suggestion. Our voip channel devolved into a screaming match and tensions were high, but there is no excuse for rudeness. Perhaps hat clan would be interested in scrimming on epic?
