iR500 - Coming Soon!
« on: May 01, 2009, 10:12:30 AM »
I was fiddlin around today and I created some alternate configs to run a 500 frag FFA Railz endurance challenge on our IRTDM2 server. So far it's 500 frags FFA, 2 hour timelimit, with railz only, no falling damage, no hook, and a timed forced respawn.

options I've left open to consideration would be spawn protection, nades, the map choice, the date and time and the player limit (currently set to 24)

I'd heard some whispering around the railz community about staging another fragfest/insta500 event like we have in past years, and I made this thread to attempt to gauge the overall interest level in something like that.

If you play railz, instagib tdm or something similar, please drop in and leave a comment and point the other regulars this way.

The kind of information I'm looking for would be:

* General comments about the setup
* Commitments to play
* medium/large map choices
* time/dates that you would prefer this event to be held

With any luck, we can get this rolling sometime in the next month or so, and maybe even get a Tastycast to cover it depending on the availability of that group of guys.

I was thinking something like q2dm8 as well..

everyone has it, they know how to move on it decently, and it has enough room for multiple areas of action with enough players.

Unless I'm dead or in a persistent vegetative state, I'll be there.

...unless there are hand grenades involved. I vote NO on the nades. I think most railers would agree with me that 2 hours of some yutz spamming hand grenades (even if there IS a 5 nade limit) would get really old really fast. We don't need no pineapples at this picnic.

I'm cool with dm8. I really have no preference at all about maps as long as it isn't too small. I remember I showed up for the tail end of the last insta500 that RailWolf headed up. I forget the name of that map, but that map was a wee bit too small in my opinion. Looked to me like people were picking their designated ledges to circle strafe on and just picking targets. Something like dm8 might encourage folks to roam and hunt a little more, although I have a feeling that most of the fighting would be done over the position at the top of the stairway by the SSG. That's usually the name of the game whenever that map is played on the Railz server.

I can't believe the amount of people that don't know that the "Hamptser Dance" song is an excerpt from that movie.

nades
:afro:

Really though, this would be a pretty nice diversion from the usual railz spawn camping :forceac:

dm8's kewl with me too,  although with enough people the dm8/dm1 combination map would be kewl too.

nades i can take or leave,  I'll be using rails.
But don't see a problem with a nader here and there,  usually easy targets.

Time and day,  hoping its a weekend.
only time I can ever play in the evening,  and that's usually scheduled. IE fragfest or something like it.

That being said even if it is on a weekend, we have ALOT of family stuff the next month,
but hope I can squeeze in.
