  1. Region : EU Highest reached rank in Matchmaking : Diamond Have you played games on the custom ruleset : Yes Have you watched games played on the custom ruleset : Yes Do you wish to see the changes proposed by the custom ruleset implemented into the current competitive ruleset ? : Yes Why ? Overall I think this custom ruleset achieves what it sets out to do - it rewards smarter plays and positioning for the out of control player, and makes ammo management a necessity for the in control player. The extra damage and larger trace size on hitscan weapons is generally nice across the board, whether you're new to the game or not. Critically the changes don't break anything and indeed as has been pointed out, they are not even noticeable at low levels of play. So this ruleset doesn't punish anyone and it doesn't seem to reward any particular style of play. You don't have to throw yourself at an armour and hope for two cheesy melee hits to get some measure of control back. My thanks again to Rama for all of his work tweaking this ruleset, taking onboard feedback, and hosting the tournaments.
  2. Not the case, we got matched again immediately on the Berlin server after I unticked the NYC server.
  3. Based on that one time I accidentally upvoted Aerowalk... yes, damn good idea!
  4. Recently I ticked the NYC server in the hopes of finding a game across the pond. I left it like that figuring the system would prioritise, but earlier this evening I got matched with NHK, another UK player, on the NYC server. Pretty sure this shouldn't happen! It's one thing to play NA instead of EU for the sake of getting a game, but getting matched on an NA server with another EU player is just silly, right?
  5. I can donate a supporter's sword to the prizepool. Rare artifact. Certified 24 karat.
  6. Two demo reviews, aimed largely at Beaton but hopefully useful to others as well, of two games we played on Pocket Infinity last night.
  7. I know others have reported this and I've noticed it for some time. I only play on the Berlin and London servers, so i can definitely say it is happening on one or both of those. Perhaps @Linden would be so kind as to investigate please?
  8. The rulesets hide a lot of information from the player, so unless you lurk in the forums or discord you'll never know. Quite often for an instagib game I'll callvote for the casual ruleset just to set the timelimit to 5 minutes, because 10 minutes of insta on one map can get a bit boring. But to the new or casual player, they just see something about a ruleset that they don't understand. I really think the timelimit should just be votable, and have an sv_ command to allow callvoting for timelimit or not. This would be a blessing for race servers! Otherwise when a ruleset callvote is made, there should be text on the screen explaining what will change.
  9. I thought it would be nice to make a race movie but I have one problem - I'm not that good of a racer! So I was hoping for a community effort to help me gather replays of runs on race maps (they don't have to be records, just a decent, smooth run from start to finish). I'll make a master list, people can run the map locally, save the replay and send it to me, and I'll mark that off the list and eventually we'll have some replays to work with. Other people can work with them too of course. I know some of the maps I either can't finish or it takes me so many attempts to get a time it's not even worth it. I'd like to focus on the maps which have an art pass to begin with, although that's not a strict rule by any means. There have been lots of new maps published recently; let's show them off! If you're recording locally, pop a password on your server, select the map, and ideally use the command 'callvote restart' everytime to restart. This should save the replay so you don't have to bother marking it and nobody has to go through a long long replay trying to find your time. When you complete a nice run, callvote restart again to save the replay, find it, and send it to meeee These are the maps I'd quite like to feature: Fractured wurst-run4 Virus Drowsy Journey Astral Fields Voidbridge Consumed_v2 Kaw-Moonlight Breaking Dawn Tropical Delight Chocolate Milk Eclipse Escape from Maldoran New Moon rek-Messiah Clarity LA Dreams LA Hattberg LA Frozen Escape Aeronaut ud-ethrian d-pyramids Mustard Tiger bejrek-sandzibar CastleRun

  12. They're for servers, so unless the server is hosted on your own machine (in which case you'll have to callvote restart to restart the server), they won't work.
  13. A lot of maps probably aren't possible to run from finish line to start, but yeah that could be fun
