I contacted the McNally and they will make a point to attend.

Are we going to use the CLAN DDM maps? They will need a copy and are wondering if it will be modded.

hmmm good Q. last time the general feeling was to leave it bone stock so everyone could attend. offhand I tend to lean toward, no mods(sso if you must), stock flags and leave out the shadow.

use the clan DDM maps, there should be plenty of people there. use the best SSO mods. i dont see how putting a master flag pack on the server could hurt it. let people use whatever flag they want, it wont change the game. leave out the shadow, i dont like getting fraged 15 times in under10 minutes by coaxs

my point about flags is, I don't know if 'clan LDA' has them...be a shame if they decided not to attend because of that
in the past they have used the prefix 'LDA' as in 'LDAJim'

i dont see why they wouldnt play if they didnt have the flags. personally, i dont even look at 'em! besides, they could download them if they wanted as easily as we could... easier, actually. they probably have a T1 or T3 modem to run the server

I wouldn't mind the Clan Maps, but I will be happy with any of them. I would leave the weapons as stock though, and no shadow.

I would recommend the use of the clan maps for any game having 10 or more players. I made the clan maps out of complete frustration of the inability of the stock maps to handle the DDM and Clan battles.

Just yesterday on the LDA server with only 6 players, 2 players were spawn fragged on the river map. Letís face it, the stock maps are do not have enough weapon points to have a fair game thatís spawn frag free.

The last DDM proves my point. That game had 15 players and the only complaint from a player was that they spawn too far from the action, which is a random factor of the TM engine.

The clan maps have even rutting, players landing on a weapon point every time, no player landing in the middle of a battlefield, moderate action, and virtually no spawn fragging.

I say, letís all have a good time by using the clan maps.

For the photo shot I would recommend using the Clay hills map. It has a nice stadium type seating for tanks with a large flat land that would allow the picture taking player to get back far enough to get every tank in the picture. Just a thought.

Hey...I am willing to show up at 2 PM PST for a 4 hour fragfeast. This is once a year...let's make it cool. The last hour could be the DDM. There are 24 Clan maps...just put them all on...get you Mom or sister to watch the kids...get a ice chest of beer by you and go for it. I want to play till I get hand cramps. Let's do it.

Until then...
