Simultaneous servers for Driving and Strategy Games

n3ur0t3ch's picture

Wayne is going to trial a new concept in 2006 for at least the first couple of RAW WAR Tournaments.

For both the Driving Game and the Strategy Game we will run 2 simultaneous games on multiple servers if necessary. This will allow players to choose the game they join.

For example when its the drving game we will run servers of V8 Supercars2 and possibly Flat Out or Powerslide (any other alternatives anybody?) Players can then choose which game type they join. Top ranked players will be required to join the top server if there is more than one server.
Thus you will be able to compete at your level and still gain points out of the round.
Ask Wayne for the details on the points but basically players will be ranked in a server and given points from the results.

We will also consider this with the Strategy game running maybe Warcraft DOTA Allstars alongside Generals.

What do you reckon? Which games do you prefer? If you have any others to recommend add them in the comments. They need to be a 8 (or more) player game so this rules out Need For Speed unfortunately.

Gotta bung finger so will

Gotta bung finger so will only type short stuff.
So far gonna use 3 diff games of each type. FPS: Wolf ET, Far Cry & UT2004, RTS: Dota, Generals & Rise of Nations, RACING: V8, Powerslide, Flat Out.
Each night, you can join whichever server you want but at the end of the year we will only count your best result in each game so if you want to get the best score you can, you need to play every game until you're satisfied you've achieved the best you can in each one.
Teams for FPS will be split down the middle according to age (old fogeys vs young whippersnappers).

BF2 has Patch 1.12 as in the BF2 post. As I've said it wont be played because alot of ppls comps arnt up to scratch to run it eg. anyone running a Radeon 9200.

ok let me clear this

ok let me clear this apparent confusion up

First of all stretch is correct. The reason we won't be playing bf2 this year as a comp game is because not everybody can play it. We will still play it as a non comp game using the current version / patch

in regard to comp games such as ET and Far Cry we will use the current version - eg for Far Cry 1.33. If Wolf ET has a current stable version now then we will use that. If during the year there are additional patches or version changes we will not be applying them for LAN play

These posts would have been more suitable in a different forum topic as this topic is about simultaneous servers.

and spell checking is a wonderful thing!
