TWHL XMAS Tournament 2014

What is this ?
Well as the name suggests its a tournament, a chance to kick back before the holidays and blow a few heads off :)

What game are we playing ?
Counter-Strike 1.6

But its 2014 and Global Offensive if already out, why not it?
Maybe next time, but until then dust off your copy of CS 1.6 and get a few rounds in before the tourney.

When ?
Saturday December 20th 20:00 GMT

Where ?
The tournament will be hosted on 46.235.226.63:27015 server is located in UK so even if you are from US the ping shouldn't be horrible.
Server is open to test out the maps.

Rules ?
This will not be your standard mr15 :D
The tournament is kill ticket based 1 kill = 1 ticket. So even if you just come in and kill a few guys you can still win a prize. More tickets means more chances to win.
Whilst in game please keep your name the same as in TWHL so that we know who is who.
While anyone can join you have to be a member of TWHL to be eligible to win prizes.
And just so its out there the server accepts STEAM clients only.

Prizes ?
1. 25$ of Steam credit (Donated by Captain Terror)
2. 20$ of Steam credit (Donated by rufee)

These prizes will be drawn randomly at the end, so there will be 2 winners.

Anything else ?
Map list:
de_pizza
de_newhorizon
cs_omega_assault
de_space
de_twhl2011
awp_2tabere_v2
de_dust_thunder
fy_17b_snow_village
de_minestorm
de_racetownz

You can download the maps here:
http://rufee.eu/twhl_xmas_maps2014.zip

The server has http downloads enabled so there shouldn't be any problems even if you don't get the map pack :)

Live statistics will be available at:
http://rufee.eu/twhl.php

Tournament will last for approx 5 hours

steam cs only.
Damn.

Is non-Steam CS still a thing? Genuine question - I thought everyone had migrated to 1.6.

Never heard of a non-steam CS MP either, possibly it's a Russki thing?! :P

I can't believe you didn't say "de_dust off your copy of CS 1.6."
Crypt Crypt120% sorry!

Not that creative Crypt :)

Eastern EU never heard of steam since 2008.

I'm pretty sure there was a non-Steam CS 1.6. It was an update patch for the version you got on discs.

Awesome, can't wait! Will try to reinstall my cs 1.6 as it is pretty messed up.

I had a look on the new server, and apart from one >500 spike, my ping was mostly sub-100. I'm pretty excited for this. I shall need to get some drinks and crisps for tomorrow or something.
Posted 4 years ago2014-12-20 03:41:46 UTC Post #322841
Three people on the server now, current map is de_twhl2011 :)

Get rid of awp_2tabere_v2. If we're all bored of it after about 3 minutes, I doubt it'll be a thriller for 10x that.
And an RTV wouldn't go astray.

I nominate Castle Rimmeh to replace tabere if it's not to late uncle rufee ;)

Might have just been me, but my high ping made de_racetownz nigh-unplayable. The controls were made so sluggish that, when I wasn't dying en route, I literally could not make it to the middle section before the rounds were over from bumping into shit.
Not a problem for everyone, I know, but a bit of a bitch for people like moi.

Castle Rim is a small and easily understandable map that sucks. I guess it's your choice though. I never nominated for it or anything.

Racetownz is far too big and difficult to manage. Given the rules are kill based, it doesn't bode well for the mode of our tourney.

Please don't remove it. It's a magical map.

5:57 PM - The Architect: You know, if instead of getting into a van at the garage you went the other way, there are STAIRS leading right into the city
5:57 PM - Jessie: ... There are?
5:57 PM - The Architect: Yes xD

If I join in, it probably won't be until around 2 hours in, roughly. Unless I get up early, which I might. Or might not. It's all a mystery! :glad:

Also, to reiterate for whenever ruffles checks this (seeing as this thing starts in ~6 hours):
Get rid of awp_2tabere_v2.
[...] And an RTV wouldn't go astray.
Seconded.
Agreed.

Lol I had no idea that map got in the list. It was merely a proposal, that map is certainly not intended to be played for that long. I agree too.

Isn't it not supposed to start for an hour?
[Edit]
Also, I shouldn't have set up that surround sound system for my brother. The only place I can use my computer is in the same room as the TV. I was planning on joining the TeamSpeak server, but anything I say will probably be drowned out.

Apparently my de_minestorm is different from the server's, despite having been downloaded from the server itself while in-game.

Three hours twenty minutes of footage...

Highlights reel will be up at some point in the not to near distant human future.

It was only after being addressed directly after the whole thing ended that I realised my microphone apparently wasn't working the entire time.

The tournament was fun though, except for that one map in which I got 0 kills during the entire half-hour match.
Posted 4 years ago2014-12-20 23:45:06 UTC Post #322874
Ok after a few pulled maps due to low number of spawns and a map that breaks itself after you download it we have the tally up.
