  • Captains Night 10/9 - 8PM Central

    Anyone familiar with our rules is welcome to join us tonight at 8PM Central for a curated, password-protected event (I'll post the password in another post below just before 8PM Central). Here is a rundown of the event:

    Fellowship:
    Throughout all of Captains Night, use the player name by which TGNS regulars best know you. Captains Night is a special time to come together with known regulars and friends.


    Playing BOTH Rounds:
    Don't play unless you can reliably stay for the entire map (mid-map emergency? tell your team and bail. dinner and/or friends showing up does not an emergency make).

    This expectation is important to participants, and admins protect it.


    Taking a Break:
    Each map begins with a two-minute break for food, bathroom, and fellowship. Except for these breaks, don't AFK during the event.

    After each break, the Captains are identified for the current map.


    Becoming a Captain:
    TGNS regulars known to participants are invited to Captain and personalize team selections on Captains Night.


    Opting In:
    Player opt-ins open up once both Captains are ready. If you miss the opt-in window for a given map, speak up and we'll get you playing on the next map for sure (if not immediately).


    Selecting Teams:
    As team selections begin, listen for instruction. Only Captains speak during team selection -- text chat is always available to everyone (and, of course, voicecomm opens up to all players once teams are formed).


    Gameplay:
    Captains Night is everyone's curated opportunity to apply our most satisfying teamwork, communicative tactics, and great fellowship. Try your hardest, but have fun together!

    Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

        To put some context to that picture.

        Marines relocated to crossroads.
        Aliens rushed our data core start immediately and killed it.
        Marines got two ips, and rt, and an armory in crossroads.
        Marine rush to kill alien rts.
        There are none so they kill the alien start rt in flight control.
        Aliens dropped a hive in datacore.

        In the timeline that ends around when the aliens come out of negative res. Not sure how they had negative res.

        Very fun game.

          The graph is offset by one so that it shows 0 when the game starts (at which point both teams have 1 res node). Therefore when the base node dies and a team has 0 res, the graph shows -1.

            Thanks for the explanation, I was wondering about the negative RTs myself

                  I was told by mendasp, creator of ns2+ and those graphs that "res graphs all start at 1" and that "something has #ucked with the game start event for that res graph to happen"
