Note: This is a work in progress, so please discuss.


Hey Funny. Add me to the list!!! Love what you're doing here.

I'm keen on Tryptic's mod too. What are your thoughts?

Yeah Tryptic's mod is really good! I still think it would be best to use 3.2.7 though because a lot of people are rusty, and that's what the players and commentators remember.

What's broken?

I think Tryptic's mod is better then 3.2.7 also but i'm unsure how good it be for the Tournament not all have played it and from Tryptic's first mod to where it is now so much has change there also no change log to people to look at to know everything that has been changed.

So as funny have said i also think the 3.2.7 will be best for this tournament.


P.S
I hope maybe next tournament we could play Tryptic's mod he should also have a change log out then so people can see what happen in the mod over 3.2.7.

Or some 50/50 50 Tryptic's mod 50 3.2.7 but anyhow this is a long way off for now.

Yeah, 3.2.7 is best for the tournament proper. Even if I release a good version of Tryptic's Mod in time for the tournament, nobody would have time to practice with it >_>

Now, with that said, I AM planning to release a new version around the time of the tournament, and capitalize on all this free publicity :thumbsup:

---

What I DO have to offer for the tournament, is a new 1v1 map. It's been a side project of mine for several years, since back when the devs reported that their 4.0 games tended to be on bigger maps and expand to cover more moons than our 3.2.7 games at the time. The visuals are incomplete, but I'm confident in the asteroid and moon placement. If you guys would like to use it, here is a copy for people to practice on. I've also uploaded it to Teamspeak for general use 8)

Ray320 has setup a discord for fleetops, and this is how I'd like us to stay in contact for the tournament. I would like all contestants and people involved to get discord (if they don't have it) and join the server by following this link: https://discord.gg/bpm2B8j

If you have any questions in getting this setup, please feel free to write me or post on here!

Tryptic, that looks like it's shaping up to be a wonderful map man! :thumbsup: I was thinking it might be cool to gather a list of the most balanced maps and randomly assign one to each match!

Yeah I was thinking it might be fun to mix in some Tryptic mod matches, but people need to have the opportunity to come back and play it a little bit more first!

So i have discord not everyone will and many don't like it can i ask why we are using discord over the TS made for Fleet Ops?

Sure man. Just off the top of my head:
  • Discord has chat history much like a messenger app combined with a forum.
  • It also has voice chat, but we can still use teamspeak for that
  • I can access it easily from all devices, including my phone, watch, ect.
  • It's easy to setup, and is pretty prolific in gaming!

Edit: sorry guys I gave the wrong link earlier. It's been fixed in the previous posts, but just so you're sure, here is the link: https://discord.gg/bpm2B8j

Hey folks, I've opened a discussion on a map pool for the tournament on discord (under winter tournament -> map-discussion)! I would love it if people posted map suggestions (1v1, or even feel free to post and discuss bigger maps). Please tell me what you think of having random maps hosted by the commentator with altered map files so players can't see the map icon or map name, thus unable to tell what map they are on until the game begins. I personally think it could be fun! Anyway's please respond over on discord!

That all sound like giving new people and people not played for a long time a better chance of winning :P

If the map is balanced, skill should still prevail :P

If this is still in the making, I would consider donating a bit of Ethereum if there is a smart contract or something for this tournament :) Is one of the community members skilled in this field?
And probably I would also sign up. In any case, it is great to see that people still care for this great mod.
