  • Captains Night 11/4 - 8PM Central

    Anyone familiar with our rules is welcome to join us tonight at 8:00PM Central for a curated, password-protected event (I'll post the password in another post below just before 8:00PM 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 short, announced 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. The first player to volunteer as Captain selects his opponent Captain. This opponent selection should prioritize gameplay quality, but the team-picking selections should absolutely prioritize competitive strength.


    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.

    Changes this week:

    ) Fixed new mod bugs after Infested's initial release (auto-reconnect, sh_wraplength, etc)

    ) Spectators may now allsay without error -- the message is seamlessly redirected to teamsay

    ) TGNS Replay now knows the difference between NS2 and Infested games

    ) Infested is modded to render dead player voicecomm badges with a red color

    ) Infested is modded to prefix dead chat with a red color

    ) Infested is modded to let SMs request Infested status (never guaranteed, forever uncertain)

    ) Infested is modded to reveal which player(s) began the previous round as Infested

    ) Gorge Tunnel Control mod is on the game server

    ) "Infested" added to Game Server Activity Notifications

    ) Several other helpful fixes/improvements too minor to warrant individual mention

    ) recent changes you might have missed

    And that's not all, so check out the rest of the TGNS Forums to learn what else is happening!

    Thanks for playing here, everyone! :)

        Fun games tonight until we started playing infested maps. I still do not understand what people fine fun about that mod, but to each their own. Should it really be played during captains though? It defeats the point of the planned game night. Some people may find it fun, but it is not a captains game.

          We played one Infested map tonight. Peppering our normal fare with a bit of Infested silliness is fine. Same would go with our occasionally playing an Arclight round during Captains Night.

          Next week, I'm going to mod the server such that the frequency of Infested play during high population is lessened (it won't be eliminated during high population, and it will of course remain a frequent seeding choice).

            Yeah, is there's one wish, it's that infest maps can't take over 75% of map nominations. It leaves little choice for ns2 maps.
