The DCTF will be on tonight. I have a UPS I can put on the server as there are rolling blackouts in my area, which is why the servers were not up the past couple of days.

But rest assured, it will be up.

Whats the point of this again?Lets see.6 guys on LDA...me and Tiger on the CTF server.I politely ask the 6 guys on LDA(3 different times) if they could come and play CTF.One hour later its still me and Tiger.I'm getting tired of making it so I can show up only to find noone is making an effort to come.If I want to play bots I'll fire up single player.So from now on I'm not going to waste my time with Wed night CTF.Killer can keep putting the server up if he wants but its just going to be bots against bots.Another wasted Wed night where I could have been doing 20 other things.

It prolly beacuse I wasn't sure I was able to host it until I was able to acquire a UPS for the servers. But I've just got a note from LIPA saying that whatever problems they were having in my area is now fixed so no more rolling blackouts.

I'll give it another go next week, I'll be sure to bang it into peoples heads starting Sunday night so they see it for a couple of days. If its a flop again, I'm pulling the plug on it. It sucks since I spent so much time getting the event setup working so I can automatically post the game results after the event. All that would end up in the trash, even though I can set it up for any event (doesn't need to be my servers, it could be any server running TMLogScan), I doubt anyone would take advantage of it.

I'm still waiting for my website to come back up. I don't understand why they keep forgetting to compile PHP with sablotron. It's getting anoying. and they keep doing this Tuesday, the day before the DCTF. Not that it makes a difference as the uploads from the servers and the forums are unaffected, its just you can't view the website itself.

If no one shows up next week, I'll prolly shoutdown the boomstick 3,4 and 5 servers and run a Gore or IL2 server in their place.
Since nobody plays on Boomstick 3, and very few play on Boomstick 2, I'll move the armageddon setup over to #2 and leave the Dudymas' one shot server up as they are the 2 most popular out of the 5. No need to wast processing power on stuff nobody uses.

I should add that the uploads are unaffected as long as they don't screw around with the server, but they screwed around with the server. Messed everything up pretty bad. :/

Thank god I made backups.

I think its because its a weekly thing. The turn out for the first 2 runs was pretty good. I guess people get tired of the same ol thing.

Welp, I'll see how the turn out is for the saturday fragfest game. If its good, I'll prolly set up a rotating set of games. A different type competition each week, and rotate it over a 2 month span. That way it won't get stale.

I'll modify my event setup so I can handle monthly events.

I was on at 8 EST. I stayed on from around 7:45 to 8:30 and got bored playing with the bots. Went back later and we got three on.

Just don't run stock DM.We decided not to do that when we started Wed night events.Thought it might take away from the Sunday DM or nobody would want to come Wed too.Of course nobody is coming Wed nights now so it wouldn't hurt I don't think

Okay, here's my list so far:

Stock Racing
MOD Racing - use some of the nice racing maps, and maybe a weapon or two
Stock DCTF
MOD DCTF - all mod maps
Armagedon Fragfest - The upcomming saturday event
Urban/Jungle DM - since We now have 2 urban maps (one more on the way) and my quad map (and a jungle map on the way by KingTiger), A theme based DM would be neat, and wouldn't cut in on the DDM on sunday.
Clan TeamCTF - I've been dying to get enough people to play this.

Comments/suggestions?
