    So with launch and matchmaking and the slight resurgence in playerbase, I decided this would be a good moment to try to get another draft going! The aim of this cup is to give old players a reminder of why they used to !add up for days and to give new players a taste of a great and underappreciated gamemode. Signup: https://goo.gl/forms/LNSfPaiRqfL4jHGo1 (If you don't have a google account, PM me on these forums with the following info: your in game nickname, your location, if you have a mic and if you're willing to be captain) When: Saturday, 25th of March (25-03-2017) checkins: 18:00 CET Draft: 19:00 CET Cup start: 19:15 CET Where: https://discord.gg/U73YjF9 Format: Double elim, bo3 throughout, pick-pick, Mappool: Monolith Spider Crossings Cofe Minimum player count: 16 What's a Draft Cup? Basically, at the start of the cup, a number of team captains will take turns picking players for their team from everybody who signed up for the cup. Then these temporary teams compete against each other to see who's the best. The benefit of this format is that the teams will be much more balanced. Wait, captains? Captain is just a nice word for "guy who picks his team". That's it. Why should I play? First off, CTF is fun! It's got fast paced action, high speed chases, clutch flag returns, high octane quad runs, last minute captures and teamwork is OP. Secondly, the gamemode has been struggling in Reflex (and that's putting it mildly). Playing in this cup is a great way to help the community kickstart some interest in it again. OK I'm convinced, but I'm new and I'm afraid I'm not good enough yet You don't need to be! CTF is a great way to learn the game. It's a team game, so the learning curve is much less harsh than 1v1 and you can learn from your teammates. Another advantage of CTF is that you can train specific skills in a more targeted manner than in duel. You wanna get better rails? Go play forward defender and have at it. You wanna improve your movement? Attacker it is. Yea but I bet all these old gods are gonna crush me and then my team is gonna flame me This isn't Overwatch. Flaming somebody for playing badly doesn't really happen in the Reflex CTF community (to quote CTF regular Owl: "worst it got was xero sighing really hard and being a bit stern"). We're all adults here and I don't expect anybody will take this cup too seriously anyway (at most you're playing for pride). The post says EU, I'm in NA, can I still play? Sure, as long you don't mind the ping disadvantage. Do I have to use a mic? No. Will your team be better if you use a mic? Absolutely. If for whatever reason you cannot use a mic, please bind the following: bind game [KEY] sayteam HIGH HIGH HIGH bind game [KEY] sayteam LOW LOW LOW bind game [KEY] sayteam QUAD QUAD QUAD Regardless if you have a mic or not, you have to be in the voice comms channel, if only to listen in. I will update this post with some rules and some new player resources soon ™

    Currently the arena mutator introduces round based gameplay into ffa (and other modes) rendering the mode ffa + arena mutator combination stale (avoiding early fights and just getting into the action at the end seems to be the most promising way to win). I suggest to add another mutator "round based" and to alter the arena mutator so it only adds "full stack, all weapons, no self/team damage". This way affa could be played round and frag based (+ as a side effect atdm could be played on a team frag basis + regular tdm could be played round based).

    I think you shouldn't queue for casual modes. You should just click a button and it sticks you in a server that's already going.

    Warmup is nice but as you mentioned it has self/team damage (+ a lower stack) and no self damage is an essential part of arena. I think it's just a design decision how to get to the non round based arena experience (warmup without self-damage or arena without rounds). Arena is just no self damage + full stack to me so I just suggested to just "outsource" the rounds. I would be happy with a no self/team damage mutator as well.

    Yea I did, as soon as Lorim proposed it. i didn't know about refunds earlier (I wish I did tho, I have some other stuff I wish I could still refund now). I already surpassed the 2 hours, and I like the game, so I'm here for good now

    In my opinion quckplay for ffa modes should just redirect you to a commmunity server which has good ping, some people playing and maybe no mutators. Matchmaking for team modes should be completely different. I think it would be nice if people weren't able to check 1v1 modes and team modes at the same time. Because if you check duel (and most people always do) it always seems to be the priorized mode -> few team games

    This patch has been active for about a week, but the replays are sort-able natively now. Syntax: ?C=N name (default) ?C=M last-modified, then by name ?C=S size, then by name ?C=T type, then by name ?C=D type, then by name and O=[AD] can be added for descending or ascending order, e.g. ?C=N&O=D descending (default) ?C=N&O=A ascending Just append the variable you wish to use to the end of the URL. Such as: http://replays.reflexarena.com/?C=M (Sort by date) http://replays.reflexarena.com/?C=M&O=A (Sort by date, ascending)

    No more restarts needed every 15-20 minutes, thanks! This fix combined with the extrapolated spectators fix should ensure that players with outdated hardware can atleast play the game at 125fps again

    That's why there's another mutator called "Warmup" which gives you 100 armor and all weapons... Not sure if there's mutator for no self/team damage, that would be welcoming addition if it isn't there already.

    I'm sure the devs are well aware that a lot of us have wanted the replay editor to be able to export audio for a long time now, but since this is nice and formal I shall just register my interest as well!

    The main difference from before is, it now locks you in after everyone clicks "ready" instead of after everyone gets to "preparing server".
