TS500 II City64 Comments

 :sorry: Didn't see where you can comment on the last TS500...
I completely agree with Ax2Grind: There's a good reason almost every ffa on any map includes ALL powerups--the # of people. Even when you do 2v2 tdm, say on lavatomb, quad is enabled. If you do 4v4dm8, the ps is enabled too; hell you should/can drop it to your teammates.

Unfortunately people started leaving this ffa either because of previous commitments or, I suspect, they hated getting quad killed. As Ax2Grind also said, there were plenty of quads/ps/invuln to go around for everybody. I watched Ely's demo up to the 200th frag, and that's the first time I've seen someone pick up two overlapping, standing quads(not frag-dropped)!! Pretty cool, if you ask me.

A last secondary consideration: Without all the powerups, this could be like playing Gin Rummy to 5,000!! Grow a beard watching the demo. You would have d/l it as a torrent! Can't imagine how long it would've taken Ely to bag 500 without them(and I believe he would have too). Look powerups in this format add mayhem and unpredictability to pot. And digency, you really don't have to know the map too well with all those goodies everywhere. Just run a route and make a few detours for extra frags. Ely was wise to avoid the rail lake. What's there? Just a rg and a lot of water. :ubershock:

Server hosting provider says we were running afoul of their DDOS mitigation system. They've made changes to (hopefully) stop blocking UDP on the tastyspleen server IPs.

Strange, seems UDP packets are being blocked somewhere in the datacenter.

Oh, of course as I type this it starts working again. (Was about to submit a trouble ticket. Let's see if it holds up.)
