For some of you it may be a guilty pleasure, for others its an obhorrent idea, some of you are out and openly love playing ictf or ift....

We are looking at having a dedicated evening during the week to play a couple of hours of insta, either mod, on the PiT server.

Any of you interested and if so what night suits best?

Cheers gubs

I like the idea. I haven't played enough of anything except CA. Could maybe alternate weeks for ctf and ft?

I can't say what night suits me for sure yet though... as the outdoor football season is ending, the indoor season starts soon so my game/training nights will change. I'm pretty certain Tuesdays/Thursdays would be best for me at this stage.

That said, probably best not to take my availability into account much as it can be really hard for me to play if my housemates are home... fuck any/all of you that voted for the coalition and their awful NBN plan.

some feedback:
gets way too chaotic when it becomes 8v8. some rounds in ift, you spawn and then remain frozen for entire round. if the teams are even slightly uneven, the losing team doesn't even get to play to an extent. just spend all that time frozen.

if we have enough for 8v8, why not make 4 teams, and do a mini comp of sorts? swiss tournament style, where basically the winners will play winners, losers play losers. absolutely no extra effort will be required, since all that will happen is if you lost, you play the team that lost in the other game. that's it. no website, or challonge, or brackets, none of that.

4v4 ictf is heaps fun, and it's actually about the flag rather than it becoming FFA.

last suggestion, though this may be controversial: increase the time required to thaw people. mostly to decrease round lengths tbh. it's boring as hell being frozen, since you can't even spectate team mates. i'd rather round be over and new round start.

one more thing:

the rules as they stand are not very balanced in ift. winning teams have a HUGE advantage, since they can position themself wherever they want. that's what happened in overkill - i spent majority of the time at tower. new round starts, and i'd get 1-2 kills straight off the bat, then a couple more when others came to thaw them.

at round end, maybe force everyone to respawn.

i know the number of players can make it too chaotic, it seems to be the problem in general today in ql that there are not enough populated servers so everyone goes to the one server, the VQL and PQL servers have the same problem at times. Its hard to split the players as some will just quit and imbalance the teams or as soon as there is a change of server peeps just disappear... limiting team size is a solution but that leaves peeps in spec for longer than they would like too. But 4v4 mini comps would be good... might need more organisation than most are willing to oblige though...

Thaw time, didnt know that can be adjusted, is that done on the back end (ie purger) or is it an admin user setting? being able to spec while frozen would be much more preferable, its kinda dumb that that isnt default, is there a way to set it? Likewise with spawning at rounds end, can that setting be modified?

Anyone have the specs on Ufreeze? emulating that wouldn't be bad.

Been watching this in the last month and a half. Quality television.

Also I would love to play instaCTF but 10:30pm start is just way too late for me on a school night.
