  • Fireteam TVT Tournament - Proposal

    Hi guys,
    There was a bit of interest recently in TvT which got me thinking... would anybody be interested in a TvT tournament - possibly run as a TG Sunday event? The games I have in mind would be something along the lines of:

    - small infantry only maps - e.g. two or three urban blocks
    - 3 players per team, with 4 additional respawns per team
    - Class based loadouts with a limited number of spawns e.g. a team has 1 SL, 1 medic, 3 rifles, 1 AR and 1 engineer to spawn as
    - win by killing the other team
    - alternatively win by capturing an objective - e.g. capture a UAV (takes a minute) and return it to your respawn, or perhaps some sort of capture and hold objective
    - lots of spectator slots so people who aren't playing in that particular round can watch / stream / whatever
    - respawns and objectives at random points in the map

    This would be a bit different from usual objective based missions, as they would emphasise faster paced, very small unit action. However there will be strategy in what load outs you combine together, and whether you go all out seek and destroy, set up defences around the UAV and wait in ambush, or try to capture and hail Mary the UAV back to your base.

    Sign up could be as a team of 3 or individually with teams "randomly" selected to balance out the games. I have made a basic mission which I is playable although the "capture the UAV" part needs a bit more work. Would anybody out there be interested in an event like this? I would probably aim for some time around Christmas / early Jan to give me time to work on the maps a bit more...

    You creating the mission?

    Either way I am down for it, sounds fun.

      Hmm working on something that might suit this event. Will report back by Friday if I get it sorted out.

        I've created a mission, I'll do a bit more testing then provide it for upload.

        Happy for anybody to contribute missions that fit the theme, the idea is that you can just pick up the markers and scripts from the template mission and place them in other sites around Altis to create other maps.

            I love the idea of this. I am a major proponent of TvT if the missions are more than just a search and destroy the other team. I like the small fire team idea. Even so much as adding a "third" team for HVT scenarios.

              I did think about adding a third team into the mix as I was writing the above, with the same objectives as the other teams (kill or capture). Its feasible but requires a little bit more copy/paste scripting.

              The HVT idea sounds cool. How do you see it working for this style of game? A race to get HVT, or protect/defend... or something else? Could give "spectators" something to do in the finals :)

                Idea:

                Two teams seek the HVT . . .the third team IS the HVT squad and their "success" is preventing either teams from capturing the "HVT" . . . . placed somewhere on the map (random) and the HVT cannot be killed (all teams lose). Multiple strategies play out . . .find the HVT avoid the other team . . . . kill the other team . . .find the HVT . . . . . play the two teams against each other . . . have them reduce their forces then the HVT takes out the last of them and wins . . . . .

                Also . . . . HV of the HVT . . . . no gun . . . . at least not to start with . . . . He is after all the HVT.

                fire teams only . . . rifles only . . . . .limited revives (not big on respawns in TvT - makes you keep track of your team members - and revive them)

                I'm also a huge fan of a "randomizer" for selecting teams . . . not a big fan of "loaded" teams either (what?!?!?!?! - like it doesn't happen??) also gives all members of the TvT the experience of working with all the other members in the teams.

                Just some thoughts . . . from an awesome "bullet magnet" . . . . . .Me.

                    Sounds like a fun mission Solo :) I don't know if it fits the tournament structure but definitely worth making something similar!

                    Yes, I think for this kind of TG event "randomised" teams would be a good idea!

                      Re: Fireteam TVT Tournament - Proposal

                      I've submitted the first mission to the "Mission Submission Thread" for play testing. I've done a fair bit of testing on my own but some things can't be done without real people... when its uploaded do I have any volunteers to do an hour or so of slightly dull testing?

                      Solo - I don't think the HVT mission is a good fit with the tournament but I like the idea and I'm about half way through making a three team TvT mission where the independents have to escort an officer. OPFOR and BLUFOR both have to kill them and whoever does it first wins. BLUFOR is a two man sniper team, whilst OPFOR is a small rifle squad. Weaponry is low tech (no AT) to stop one shot ending the game, so its a matter of scouting and ambushing. Sorry, there isn't a whole lot of 7.62mm :)

                        Slot me as sniper with a good spotter and I'm down for that team . . . . :-)

                        PS - sniper that isn't at least 7.62 . . . not much of a weapon . . . . between bullet drop and loss of velocity . . . might as well be slinging rocks . . . lol . . . . I'll take what I get though . . . . :-)

                          Fair point - the sniper has the CheyTac .408 which I think in modern units is what, 10mm plus a bit... will that do? :)

                            Me loves the 408Che(rr)yTac . . . . . . this is my Cherry . . there are many other like it but this one is mine . . . . . yes, that will do very nicely. . . .and all the .408s a human can carry . . . . .HOORAA

                            And for those that want the whole lament . . . . .

                            This is my rifle. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my rifle is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before God I swear this creed: my rifle and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen.

                              I've always wanted to implement TvT in a larger scenario, the AI being the main forces and the fireteams being specialized forces to hit critical parts of the enemy team. two smalls team versus each other can get a little bland (personally). adding in the extra forces might spice it up a bit by forcing teams to prioritize targets and figuring out where the other player team is.
