Teams are not clanbased right :P ? Just to make it sure for all  :mrgreen:

Indeed, teams are not clan-based, nor do the team players require to play with the same clan-icons.

How many individuals is max on 1 team?
(in case 1 guy does not have time, it should be possible to have backups)


Title: Re: Welcome to the Newerth Instagib Competition (NIC)
Post by: valli on October 29, 2012, 09:51:30 am
We have a team size of max 5 players, of whom 2-3 are playing each round.

So you have 2 - 3 backups, but remember if you field just 2 players the other team is still entitled to field 3.

Hmm, is anybody out there able to make minimaps for the two instagib maps of mine? I really have trouble spending those few hours to get them done, mostly because I ain't got the head now for it at all... sorry to pop out unfinished work - if someone got that little spare time and is willing, please help here.

My mini maps are not the best but heres a first attempt

will try to do the other if this style is what your after ,and check out my new instagib map http://www.newerth.com/?id=maps&mid=2347 let me know what these maps need as I've never played instagib - only in unreal tourney  :mrgreen:

well isnt this just a screenshot of the map ?  :lol:
anyway its enough for instagib :D


Title: Re: Welcome to the Newerth Instagib Competition (NIC)

Yeah its a screenie - how else can it be done?


Title: Re: Welcome to the Newerth Instagib Competition (NIC)
Post by: valli on November 12, 2012, 08:52:51 am
That is good enough for instagib, just make the 2 minimaps please :) and don't get irritated by Riddick

Sidenote: One could use a image manipulation program of your choice (paint, gimp, photoshop, ...) and could draw the minimap based on that, but that is not necessary here.

would it be possible for daemon's skins to be only shown on instagib servers?
it doesn't show armors!


Title: Re: Welcome to the Newerth Instagib Competition (NIC)
Post by: Hakugei on November 12, 2012, 12:22:21 pm
No; Insta-gib isn't a mod, so it loads the standard Savage stuff.
The .s2z Daemon made replaces exactly that; thus you have to manually enable/disable the .s2z pack.

Maybe one day someone will turn it into a mod, instead.
But that's too short-notice now with the competition starting very soon. Find a victim afterwards. :-D

(http://i1131.photobucket.com/albums/m557/djinghis_pics/xr_instagib2_final_overhead.jpg)

k this one i had to remove the massive trees that take up the whole screen but im sure trees dont need to be on the mini map? At least it should line up and dont mind the edges as they dont show that bad when loaded. If anyone has a cartonnorized version or mini icon to represent the hawaiian trees id gladly add it to the mini map.
If it will do - simply copy image and name _overhead etc to the map section as they are 512x512's.

Yes, i've disabled the armors myself. Are they necessary for the Instgib competition?

nope, just makes me have to disable them whenever i want to play normal sav.

other than that the colors/disabled armor is terrific!

i need to kick 2 inactive players from the team, but is it impossible for new players to join in? if it is i think im gonna have to withdraw.


Title: Re: Welcome to the Newerth Instagib Competition (NIC)
Post by: valli on November 22, 2012, 09:31:14 pm
Yes you can get new players in, team size should be still 5 players, so just drop the inactive ones.


Title: Re: Welcome to the Newerth Instagib Competition (NIC)
Post by: Shagroth on November 22, 2012, 09:33:28 pm
so i can get 2 players who hasn't signed up at all in the competition in?


Title: Re: Welcome to the Newerth Instagib Competition (NIC)
Post by: valli on November 25, 2012, 10:40:08 pm
Yes you can get 2 more if you drop the 2 inactives.

Just a few suggestions for the next time you decide to hold this competition:
Implement some form of spawn protection, if only for half a second.
Make the map rota open to suggestions/voting.

We have 750ms of spawn protection, that is quite alot of spawn protection. Besides that we, actually Faun and me talked alot about maps, also Necrofears and Djingis tried to help, and alot of other people including several WW's gave input to the maps, as those where the people more or less frequently playing instagib anyway :)

So only one tie-breaker is missing that we actually can end the NIC competition. Congratulations to team HnR for winning the Newerth Instagib Competition!

I would be happy for any positive or negative feedback regarding the competition itself!

I liked it. But next time if there is one, more maps are needed, playing mini every other week drags. :D

My overall observation was; Started with enthusiasm and interest from everyone, then it declined (Not your fault though) happens with loads of competitions though anyway. Maybe it was due to activity or just people getting bored/frustrated with losing. Too counter this, you could make the squads one or two players stronger, and too make sure it works, create maps that take 4v4. And do something like Hakugie did, make everyone promote a team captain with forum or a place of communication (i.e. HnR; everyone used skype and I was organising everything.)

Thank you for organising and creating this competition Valli! :)
