LSB, Pyrhic, and I have all confirmed, and I assume Trey should be able to since he is captain! Let’s meet up in the Qt3 L4D chat whenever you guys happen to get on (Before 745pm cst). From there, we can sacrifice a goat or something, and wish each other good luck. I don’t know if we are lucky that we got a game, or unlucky cause we didn’t get one of the NUMEROUS byes. I guess playing is what we wanted ;)
The rules are somewhat…bizarre. So we’re supposed to switch sides every round(on a new map, you play whatever you played as at the end of last map), which invalidates the score the game keeps. So I’m guessing we manually add up the scores from each round??
For the first round, Qt3 1 gets to choose which side they want to play first, Qt3 2 doesnt. I think if you get the side choice, you’re best off going infected - means you play infected first on maps 1, 3 and 5, and as survivor first on maps 2 and 4.
Everyone also needs to screenshot end screens and record videos. I assume screenshot is just prntscrn, but anyone know how to record in this game?
ugh, i had forgotten what kind of bs gets involved in ‘organized’ play…
Doesn’t taking demos/recording video really lag? They should just have us take video if there is some action happening that we think is illegal… I can’t believe they would require every single player to take a demo… we can ask about it in that irc channel I guess.
I’ve done it before in several games, and I’ve never seen it cause any real lag. Hopefully l4d is the same. In my experiences, it was largely used to defend a player accused of cheating - typically if it cannot be produced when demanded, the team is forfeit - however, it was very rarely asked for(I can think of only one case in perhaps 3 or 4 years of playing TWL - maybe in CAL it’s more common).
I’m idling in chat on irc and qt3 l4d channel right now. Just make sure you are there on time. If you think of the odds, there is a good chance the other team wont show… so we gotta make sure we are there on time :)
Also, remember your binds for screenshot, and take a look at that link for taking videos. We all need to do both.
