If you give fellas like Bio, Phae and Grank (who's already posted some screenies) a little more time I'm sure they'll have some good ones to show.

Great job Shanka, sorry I couldn't be there, sounds like a lot of fun. Sorry to AYL for my absence as well...it couldn't be helped. Great job to everyone, though, and great job to AYL...I agree it sucks guarding Korman with only 2 players.

Yeah, it was hard, I think maybe we should have an absolute minimum of 3 player teams in the next ToD. 3 - 4 Players is the best TUT in my opinion.

Also... voice comms... fix your mics people!

yeah, I think voice comm should be allowed the whole time.. If one team has voice and the other one dont, then the team that has voice should be able to use it anyway.. so for you that dont have voice, just get it before next tod or whatever =p thats what I think..

Look at it this way..

I have a pretty neat computer, I run Thievery in 1600x1280, full whack GFX, I have a 4 speaker setup and EAX all gloriously configured to perfection. I'm not gonna reduce my settings because somebodys running on a voodoo3 in 320x240 software mode with force feedback joystick that doesn't turn left and speakers from a pack of rice crispies.

So why should I deny myself the voice comms!

Because it might be against the rules for a specific tournament or match? Just a thought.

Wasn't it TuF that vetoed using TS for the TurfWars match with CrkZ?

I will be considering revising a few minor rules for the next ToD. Although I wouldn't expect the format to change very radically like it did from v2 to v3. I think overall this tourny went extremely smooth.

well Clariff....err, Chalrif even, like I said, If you aint got voice until then, and the rules turns out to be like that, then I cant say no more than "GOOD LUCK" cause if you wanna win, you'll probably wanna use voice

Turf wars its part of the rules, in ToD it's part of the rules, I'm suggesting it be taken out as a rule in the next ToD, my opinion.

I lead TuF, this doesn't mean I make all the decisions, we all decide. I am just a frontman, no greater than any other person in the team. MY opinion was to keep Teamspeak, but WE as a whole tacticly decided against it.

Bio, I did like the revisions regarding the map selection and the rules regarding victory, they were definatly good changes.

Well, that answers your own question then, doesn't it!

Well, geez, man, what good is being the leader then? When I ran CTG, I told those bitches what we were doing, and they had to just take it and LIKE it, dammit!

You aren't irritating Mach, but for someone like me that is used to binds and two second short-hand whispers, you do seem to talk a lot more than is "necessary".

Including that swearing in the first round of the ToD final.

Although when we were guarding together, I guess I wasn't very talkative... was trying not to wake the lady, and you know what my voice is like when I'm drunk... carries through walls, I tell ya.

Type kills also aren't an issue with voice comm, you can chat as you kill, so to speak. (Pun well intended)
