    We are launching two AS channels over at Quakenet.

    No later than Wednesday, 29th May. One way or another!
    We need as many people around as possible, to already start this off as a success. This is about the future of AS.

    Not launching today, sorry about that!
    However, launch will be no later than Wednesday, 29th May.
    One way or another!


    Spydee is adjusting his awesome sbot to suit our needs.
    Several advantages of his bot:
    - No changing nicknames to sign.
    - No !reset abuse.
    - 60secs vol capt mode then random kicks in.
    - If rand capt is afk too long he gets banned for 5 mins and pug is 11/12 again.
    - Et cetera.

    I have rented a German server, LAS installed, we will be adding that one and when pugging we can choose between UK and DE server.


    We need impressive backgrounds for the simple website, it should look like this: http://img580.imageshack.us/img580/2390/utflagcarrier.jpg

    Please make one like it, with a high quality pic of an Assault map instead of the flag carrier and logo.
    Same amount of black, please! Width: 1920px, not 1600.

    Btw everybody here will be welcome in both channels, second one is invite only because we want to make sure that new people try out the easier pugs first.
    Naturally you won't have to audition..


    You can register your nick already over there, which will be necessary for everybody who wants to join the pro chan on a regular basis:
    http://www.quakenet.org/help/q/how-to-register-an-account-with-q

    Pm your registered nick to MyM or me, or just post it here, and we will add you to the auto invite list, once the chans are open for everyone!

    XB will be welcome too, btw. But not in the newcomer channel!
    Anybody flaming newcomers will receive a ban for one month from that channel. Flames will only be welcome/allowed in the pro channel.

    Hm, here's another thing that we need done, I'd appreciate it if you would want to help:

    720p video of the 7 maps we start out with in Channel 1 (btw, channel names just aren't public yet).
    Simple walk through, doing only the bare essentials:
    Run/Dodge to objectives. Shoot/Touch them. Have a casual look around map while you move around. 1-2 hammer jumps.

    But not a speed run! Still, take only about 1.30-2mins for Riv3.


    You obviously would get credited for this.
    Please pm me here or on IRC, as soon as you are willing to do it, and I would tell you 1-2 more details, like what nickname you should use in game.

    I'm having a hard time motivating myself for this task, even thought it doesn't take very long, but I have some other things that also still need to be done :)

    How do you expect people to do that without telling them the objectives?

    I assume he means all the objectives for the 7 maps he listed in post #3.
    Although without launches they wont know much about the maps.

    Money for newcomers? Dont you think it's a bit over the top (like the whole thing you came up with) ? How would this be handled anyway? Just a little friendly advice - Give up. Or maybe move to another more modern game where there are still enough ppl? This just seems to me you have not thought much about that. Regards.

    Please go away with pessimism, mate. You don't even play any pugs on QuakeNet, so you have no idea...

    Launch tonight, as promised! ;D
    Please be around to join our AS pug channel targeted towards newcomers!!

    #assault.pro is on its way, it will be like #utapug but with
    1) much better pug bot and
    2) much easier transitioning for people from QuakeNet.

    edit: It's up already, key is "as1".
    /join #assault.pro as1

    #assault is the newcomer chan, rather relaxed, no picking maps before pug.
    Please don't spam !maps, !listmaps etc in there. That's coming to #assault.pro.
    And keep chat about #assault.pro to a minimum in #assault!!!


    List of Admins: MyM, Rocky, Ulv, weezy, twnz, seas.
    List of non-AS Admins: [CB]Decl, Babe^Biatch, NeXii. They are in there for trust/popularity reasons.
    http://ut99assault.com

    edit: twnz will also be admin!

    Good job so far

    Imo might be worth setting up a newcomer tournament (maybe very soonish)

    4v4 - captains should be uta experienced players. The rest should be newcomers/mates who want to try out a new mod together. I think that would be a good way to learn (captain teaches) and new players enjoy because they can play together.

    Or maybe u can scrap the uta captain and just newcomers enter a tournament.
