General Ownage / league for fall
« on: August 03, 2010, 08:02:00 AM »
allowed 2 choices;

personally I'd like to play in an ra2 ladder + a 2v2 tourney...but is there even enough people to have a successful ra2 ladder? Vote whatever though, i'd like to get something going this fall(sept-nov/dec). I have admin access to nadl/nadml on q2scene so those I can do those myself, with help. The 2v2 tournament I could run myself too, with help. The ra2 ladder would be easily organized through www.worldogl.com

I left anything insta related off being that nail is starting soon(right?).

**Added an ffa tourney option that would be run similar to 'FFA HEAT' that used to happen around here. I believe that people were split into groups of 8, then after playing the top would continuously advance until there was a final 8 which would battle for the #1 spot.

5 maps:

q2dm1, q2rdm2, ztn2dm3, q2duel1, ptrip

Best of 3 on a tastyspleen central server, I volunteer to ref and will do everything by tournament procedure and as fairly as possible. I have admin on the tdm servers so this is easily done.

No one wants to hear what either of you have to say about each other; it's time for someone to win and someone to lose, but more importantly it's time for you both to man up. It's so fucking gay how much shit you guys talk. Both of you think you completely own the other and it's ridiculous............. One of you is full of shit and it's about time we found out who instead of read all the stupid BS. If you guys are close, someone barely comes out on top, and the other feels like he should have won....... then do it again the next day. I don't even know WHY you guys won't play or WHO is responsible because there is just so much shit talk but please, STOP BEING GAY LITTLE GIRLS, man up, and play.

I will consider switching one for dm3, and to vital/vae: I will delete basically any post by you guys unless it has to do with accepting this challenge / these terms. I don't want any excuses or explanations for ANYTHING. Minor changes / negotiations to the terms may be permitted.

ps. If you refuse let me call you a pussy already beforehand.

Ever since I started playing again I haven't been able to strafe jump backwards. I don't know why, but if I'm holding +back and left or right strafe +moveup does nothing. aside from a new keyboard does anyone know how to solve this problem?

General Ownage / TDM Q&A thread
« on: June 12, 2010, 03:52:32 PM »
So... I got a pm 2 days ago asking for advice about duel strategies and once I looked at my inbox for a bit I realized that I've received a LOT of messages like this. So instead of me putting effort into another long/lengthy reply... I had an idea(this thread).

Something I'll address primarily:

Am I top tier? No.
Am I decent enough to be very familiar with the top tier mind-set? Yes.
Do I know everything? No, and if you think I'm wrong about something make your point and i'll happily admit that i'm wrong if it's the case. Anyone can take a stab at answering questions or contesting anything I say.

I think with all the interest and heated discussions that happen about tdm this thread could be fairly active, so I'll do my best to answer everything to the best of my abilities. My girlfriend just left for a little while so I also have some extra time on my hands(once I get a mouse I swear i'm going to play some q2...  :erhmmm: ) This may also keep people busy opposed to talking trash all the time.

here are some categorized concepts of tdm(to maybe spark some questions..):

-movement; speed, jumps, predictability, little tricks, blending your aim and movement so they compliment each other, etc.
-methodical item collection and the properly timing these items
-altering your gameplay depending on your opponent
-map knowledge

but not limited to these of course. Ask anything you want; these concepts are just a few drops of water in the bucket. I don't even care if you ask me something like 'Under what circumstances are whiney ping excuses legit?'.... because I'll have a specific and detailed answer for that even.

1v1 and TDM Demos / TDM demo archive
« on: March 17, 2010, 05:58:02 AM »
I was thinking about making a thread that organizes all the demos here on tastyspleen, and stickying it for convenience.

Example:

Name

then links to demos of their pov with a few details about it (map, # v. #, players involved)......

but I stopped because idk if 1) this would even be a cool idea and 2) if people would even want their older demos to be stickied.

I might categorize them by year.. or should I even do this?

edit:

I think I am going to categorize them by map, like this:

/dev/random / something i'll share..
« on: February 27, 2010, 08:11:36 AM »
So I left my school bag in my mother's car after I borrowed it to get to school (my truck is at the mechanic). Her being the loving mother that she is, she searched through my belongings and found something that looks exactly like the one on the left:



A ballpoint pen that looks like a syringe. It has some kind insulin advertisement on it too. So I'm working a double right now and my dad calls me up, while he's working a double as well and informs me that my mom found 'a used hypodermic needle' in my school bag and he's pretty pissed. I hadn't seen the pen in FOREVER, so i'm like uhhhhhhh... I have no clue what you're talking about, she must be making a mistake.

To make a long, stupid story short, it took about 3-4 hours for my mom to figure everything out. Before that she was discussing rehabilitation and treatment for me with my dad....... 'Mom I have no idea what you're talking about.......' response: 'do you think I was born yesterday? what did a ghost put it there?' etc...

Ridiculous lol. She better invite me over for dinner and make me something good tonight... :afro:

/dev/random / invasion of privacy?
« on: October 14, 2009, 11:25:45 AM »
I'm involved in a an unemployment legal hearing. My ex-manager + her free attorney provided v. My boss + her attorney......I'm a witness.

Anyway, this woman who I replaced was just supposed to be a temporary job, managing a motel office and marina. She went on maternity leave... A month and a half later she told me, my boss, and several others she wasn't coming back. She told me over the internet in the java-based facebook chat option. It went something like this:

Her: "did you hear that I'm not coming back?"
Me:  "no... why not?"
Her: "Because I don't have someone who will babysit at 4am in the morning, not to mention other child-related things"
Me:  "that's too bad.. how are things blah blah blah"

She is saying that she got fired and her job was "given" away to me--When the funny thing is, is that her job / old position is STILL open, being that I'm about to leave in not too long..........so her claims are all bogus. I didn't even know that I would be working into the winter-time until august, when my boss offered me more work when I was getting ready to file for unemployment. She is saying that my boss gave her job away to me a month before she even told me she wasn't coming back. To top it all off, my boss even paid her insurance for 2 months, even though since she didn't come back she was supposed to pay it back.. just because my boss wanted to give her a break being that she just had a child.

OK, so this bitch printed out my entire facebook wall. Pages, upon pages, and pages... as far as it will go back. She submitted this to her attorney, whoever is presiding, my boss's attorney, AND MY BOSS. She told me that shit on the java-based gay chat thing, and then she prints out everything that i've ever done or that's been said on my facebook page as if the 2 methods of communication are correlated whatsoever........ it did nothing but let my boss read everything about me. Her name wasn't even on the shit except for us "being facebook friends". So she's taking the approach "look... he lied... we never talked on his facebook" which plays on how naive the woman presiding is to how facebook is (which wouldn't fly, of course) and simultaneously she's hinting at: read through all of this guy's stuff... can we really believe what he has to say?

This really pissed me off. I've already thought this out and know exactly what I'm going to do, rest assured I am the smartest person during these lame conference calls / hearings. It's just stupid. Immature lying bitch deleted me off her fb friends afterwards too.... Whatever, she is getting owned.

A beer with genuine wheat taste, 110 calories, and 6$ a 6pack.........non-existent, right? Wrong.

Bud light 'golden wheat'..... only downside is it's 4.1% alc. content. But whatever though..... it actually tastes good. It's tastes JUST like a blue moon light but way cheaper. Light wheat taste brewed in orange peels, but keeping the calories of bud light and the price? I'd say it's pretty cool.

If you buy a 6pack with normal expectations of an anheiser product you will think it's the best thing since sliced bread, otherwise it's just a semi-decent brew. The price and calories are just awesome though. :thumbsup:

Discussion / Q2 jumps - Q/A thread
« on: September 21, 2009, 09:33:58 PM »
Ask any jump-related question and you will get an answer. General questions, technical skill, physics, etc. etc. it doesn't matter: any question somewhat related to q2 jump will get an answer. I'm not q2's absolute best in this category, but I am kind of recognized for knowing this sort of thing and I'll do my best to give you an answer. Input, comments, and whatever is :thumbsup: .. This is a discussion thread where everyone can both ask and answer questions.

Science / Evolution
« on: September 09, 2009, 04:13:50 AM »
Slayer... not believing in the things you listed is YOUR choice. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with your ideology, other than you're meeting the negative stereotype that gives conservatives a bad name to a T(there are people who give democrats a bad name as well). No offense, but you REALLY need to do some research instead of letting other people think for you, because when you have a set of facts in front of you (they are undeniable facts) all you're saying by disagreeing with them is 'You're wrong because I said so'. But we're not wrong.....

For example. Evolution is real, sorry to break it to you. If you think differently, then you honestly don't know what evolution is, let alone understand it. If you're thinking "humans didn't come from monkeys, so evolution doesn't exist" then you are totally ignorant to the concept of evolution. So, I'm going to explain evolution to you, so you understand it from now on and don't look like a dum-dum to anyone who you discuss it with.

'The theory of evolution'

First, the definition of evolution in my own words: 'the theory that living things evolve over time'--or a more specific definition 'the process of all living things going through genetic changes when passing DNA to the next generation'. Now that you know what evolution is, lets define theory, so you don't make any discrediting assumptions in regards to it: 'a scientific theory is the 'BEST', uncontested, explanation we as humans possess in order to understand some kind of natural phenomena'. That being said, a theory isn't just a guess, or an educated guess, it is a TOTALLY plausible explanation for the scenario being observed, plausible meaning possessing facts/evidence and logic/reason to back it up.

Moving on. We know that genetic information can change, or 'mutate', when going from one generation to the next. How else would people be born with certain diseases and disorders?--there's no denying this. But diseases/disorders aren't the only example of 'genetic mutation'. Genetic mutation is responsible for advantageous changes as well. Lets say you have a group of monkeys on an island. One male monkey was born a few years ago, and has grown into the largest, fastest, most fit monkey on the whole island. Consequently, our muscular monkey friend is going to have the most off-spring, for two reasons: 1) He can kick every monkey's ass on the whole island and 2) as a dominant individual of their population, the female monkeys WANT him to father their little monkeys--they have brains, and they _know_ that their children will have a lot better chance of survival if he fathers them (instinct, humans have it too..kind of like how all humans are naturally weary/afraid of snakes, EVEN without being educated about them). Being that our big male monkey produced the most off-spring, this also means that he passes on the most genes. The result is some SLIGHTLY healthier, larger, and more fit monkeys. It's honestly not much of a change though, it's the same thing as a human inheriting advantageous traits from his or her father/mother (height, muscles, etc). HOWEVER, imagine if this process occurred... lets say, one million times over the course of one million years(this is just an example, the number would actually exponentially increase because there would be more monkeys to reproduce; population increases exponentially). Then, these slight changes start adding up. We would have very large, fit, and muscular monkeys compared to what we had before. BUT, muscular and size advantages aren't the only thing this applies to. What about brain size? What about deformities in joint structure that turned out to be advantageous some way? What about healthier organ systems, that enable an individual to live longer? The list goes on and on! All of these things would enable an individual to produce more offspring, therefore enabling evolution to work.

So, the concept of evolution is nothing more than a demonstration of the random genetic mutations (everything from deformities, cancer, disorders/diseases, to advantageous things such as height, fitness, and health) we already know to exist. And if you're asking yourself, why doesn't evolution work for the aforementioned negative genetic mutations? The answer is that it DOES--except in reverse. People born with trisomy 21 (an extra chromosome on the 21st our of 23 human chromosomal pairs aka 'down syndrome') will produce less offspring therefore enabling healthier people to reproduce more, which in turn makes a better gene pool for the next generation.

Now that we know how evolution works, lets talk about it's application to mankind today--are we evolving now? The answer is yes, but there's a catch. Civilization has slowed down evolution tremendously, just as it would to any species. Civilization is defined as the development of complex society and culture, characterized by things such as agriculture, trade, government, language, urbanism, occupational specialization(people beginning to adapt actual professions), and social classes. Obviously, a 'civilized' group won't be competing to reproduce like individuals would in the wild. Therefore this was the first time that the biggest and best guy stopped getting his way with the ladies as a rule. This applies even more so to contemporary society(today) being that we are a highly civilized culture group.

Additionally, does the theory of evolution disprove God? Of course not. This is a common misconception that many people have.... it's just really foolish to say "I believe in God so evolution doesn't exist"--when it does. It makes many religious people seem fairly ignorant when debating it(how stereotypes start....). Anyway, I hope you understood everything I said slayer, and I hope the same that you shove this information in the face of whoever told you that evolution doesn't exist, because he or she is wrong. If you have any questions just ask.
