  1. When do the signups open? Any possibility on the inclusion of other 2v2 maps like Gravesite, Aerowalk, etc..?
  2. Thermal blast is very garbage
  3. I was considering signing up when there were 5 maps - but only 3? Maybe next time. Variety is better.
  4. sane did not show up like he didn't show up for 2 of the last 3 tournaments he signed up for. ckap played in his place and it was a fun match apparently. Thump played with around 90 ping to ckap's 20 and end up defeating ckap 3 games to 2.
  5. Thump4 is the underdog in this community. Sane was seeded higher in every tournament they have played in together in Reflex. However, there should be a system that takes all money from the pool of bets... and distributes that money to only the betters. Example - Assuming everyone bets $20: $180 in favor of sane by 9 people. $100 in favor of Thump4 5 people. If sane wins, $280 is distributed to the 9. (less than double) If Thump4 wins, $280 is distributed to the 5. (more than double) This is typically how normal betting works and is why they have payout ratios. You don't know who the underdog is until bets have been placed. From what Thump4 tells me, no bets have been placed thus far. Thump4 is simply promising that the betters will double their money regardless of the payout ratios. -Even if the favorite between the betters ends up winning. If Thump4 were to win in the example above, the extra $80... Thump4 would keep that money. What you are saying is a fair argument, and I believe it should be distributed in the way I have described above. Less money to the fan favorite, more money on betting for the underdog. I am in favor of payout ratios.
  6. My assumption would be that Thump4 and sane would cover that shit since they make bank.
  7. Fluoride
  8. Interesting. Is there a place where I can go to compare gun statistics for each game mode? That is one thing I can't stand about Reflex.... casual/competitive/experimental Just pick one please If competitive is 136 and exp is 140... what makes exp > competitive or vice versa? I have no idea what the difference is...
  9. That is funny. Everyone and their mother said ic needed a buff. Maybe it should be 130 dps instead? 6,7,6,7,6,7
  10. Please open the tournament to 32 slots (or no maximum). I would like to participate 32 is better mathematically for the brackets. 8 less 1st round byes.
  11. Ion Cannon is fine where it is. If anything... it needs to be nerfed even more (not damage). The ability to hold a player stationary in the air is quite high. It stops a charging player 100% dead in his tracks and is an almost guaranteed kill if the player uses a jump pad or rocket jumps vs an accurate aimer.
  12. Whatever the current sound system in Experimental mode is... it needs to be reduced significantly. Just watch Necrophag1st POV in the King of America #2 and see how sound can be abused. There was almost never a moment where he didn't know where his opponent was. It is equivalent to wall hacking. Having the ability to always know your opponent's location is a bad idea in any competitive game mode in any game (fps or not). It removes a certain level of skill. Kyto says it promotes slow-play... I believe global sounds promote slow-play even more because you can easily hear everything from the center of most maps and use that information to walk to a location in which your opponent is not. Slow-play isn't necessarily a bad thing either in FPS gaming because it adds more strategic game-play and sneak attack opportunities for the out of control player. Of course - this is just my opinion. I have been watching/playing the FPS genre for 19 years now... so my experience on the matter is higher than most.
  13. I think we can try to add a donation % to the casters next tourney? Anyways - I was pretty upset at the European harassment about the prize structure. I mean... I put up $100 of my own money for the 1st place prize. Got nothing but complaints... So maybe I just won't do that anymore. Very sour community support from the Euros when Ramagan lost it was nothing but rage and complaints and insults toward me directly. So maybe I just won't let them play in my cups anymore. Thanks for showing up to all the players that did. I had a lot of fun smack talking and watching great duels.
  14. Maybe someone will be kind enough to let you borrow their login to play during the tournament? If you can't find someone - I would provide you with my account information to play your matches.
