SPEED FREAK (KING OF THE HILL)

Post by N/a » Mon Apr 09, 2018 10:07 am

This Wednesday a fastest night. 'Speed Freak Friday' King of the hill whoever wins gets the title 'Speed Freak of The Week'. NO SIGN UP REQUIRED, JUST TURN UP and request to play and have a fucking brawl. Starts 6pm to 8:30pm UTC.




Some more detail:


King of the hill, whoever goes first has to win as many battles against the challengers, whoever wins the most matches in a row wins.

When you get beaten you go to the bottom of the pile of challengers.


Whats so awesome about fastest is that you can get in a high amount of games in a very short space of time 16-18 which means everyone can have a go!





GET IN AT 5pm for PRACTICE, KING OF THE HILL STARTS AT 6pm UTC.





Go watch on:

Looking for a streamer!


WILL BE LINKING UP THE DISCORD with the #live-scores section to give live updates on the scores through out the event. https://discord.gg/UcUztfr



Will be showcasing my own maps and selected with a list randomiser.


First come first server, first player on the server i'm hosting will be first up, second as follows etc... When you lose you go to the bottom of the list you can challenge again after the others in succession.

Lots of top players about!


So lets find out who the speed freak of the week is...




See you there.

I'm rarely on Fridays at that time sadly. Me and Unano did some fastest games and they pretty fun.

Great initiative, I'll be streaming this tonight. I'll hang out in the OpenRA discord voice channel if you want to come in for some co-casting or post-game analysis.

Here's the Twitch event: https://www.twitch.tv/lundiztv/dashboard/events

Would be nice if someone could make Reddit thread for this or otherwise build up some hype. I don't want to spam the community too much.

FIRST SPEED FREAK OF THE WEEK results!

Post by N/a » Fri Apr 13, 2018 8:46 pm

SPEED FREAK OF THE WEEK: BARF with 6 POINTS!!!!!!


HE HAS THE NEED FOR SPEED!



THANKS to all participants.


Thanks to Lundiz for doing a really great stream, finishing it off with the soundtrack Danger Zone - Kenny Loggins


Runners up were Netnazgul and Ganon with 3 points!

followed by Anjew and .1 with 2 points.


Best moment of the night was probably Netnazgul's monsterous parabombs on anjews massive blob and anjew taking it like a champ...But ultimately losing the match.

I think theres a brutal gif of the very bombs somewhere.


Overall I think it went well looking forward to doing some more themed nights in the future!

All future results I think I'll be posting here as well.


Feel free to give feedback and let us know what you think!

___________________________

Anyway, that was fun, but most fun was removed from the game by specs and, to some extent, players with mediocre connection, so Fastest becomes not much faster than Fast and the whole purpose of the Tournament is deteriorated.

Next time I'd like to see some source to check on players list and current performance. I think it can be easily set up on googlesheet, even with some automation to calculate rolling king of the hill score.

Yeah, next time I'll be uploading screenshots of the queue and the points scored by the players name to discord!


I have a great app for shifting orders of items. Didn't think to use it this time but next time it'll be a bit more transparent.



Yes certainly on a number of occasions the lag was quite horrible. With a transparent queue update and stream, should be able to keep the lobby limited to just 2 or three, i.e only those that need to be there.


And yes there were a few mishaps here and there but the main goal of having fun was accomplished.

Looking to improve the format every week.


Certainly room for other themed nights as well!

I think shit PCs are a possibility too with fastest and lots of units
But might I suggest using the servers closer to the players with those connections rather than EU

First part of the VOD: https://youtu.be/Gp0meUEWWuQ

Sure there's lots of ways to improve. I've had quite a bit of technical issues as well mostly due to my own set up. It was fun though and thanks again for organising and playing. Looking forward to the next event!

Here's all the replays I have. Plenty of good matches there. The first one that I just came in halfway through on the stream was really good. Haven't got around to adding the player names to the replay files, that would be a nice feature for the game actually!

Part 2 of the raw VOD: https://youtu.be/OawK-LSzz-g

I think I've got most of the technical issues ironed out now for the next event. Hopefully we could get more specs to watch the streams provided to minimize the lag.
