Closed Server Matches, CSMs
Please note the details aren't 100% final yet and may be updated :)

What is it?
A fun evening each week, where players, especially regulars, can compete against players of another Lanarchy server in a "match", with the results making up a tournament competition.

The three teams are:
- The assault server team
- The dust2/office server team
- The custom map server team
And you just pick the server you most enjoy playing on, or play the most on, and join that team!

Basically, one of the 20 man servers (either the Custom Map, Dust2/Office, or Assault server) will be closed, and eight 10 man teams we be selected. Four from the closed server ("home" server), and two from each of the 'opposing' servers. This gives everybody the chance to play. Each week, a different home server is selected.

Each team would be captained by a specially selected player.

The captain of the closed (home) server would pick 4 maps, 2 to play against each of the opposing servers.

The home team would play 4 matches as T, 4 matches as CT. Each opposing team would play once as each team. There are a few ideas for the length of the matches. They are:
-First to 12 rounds
-Winner after 30 minutes

When and Where will it be?
NEXT EVENT- Friday 11th November Custom map server.
Dust2/Office team play Custom twice at 20:00
Assault team play Custom twice at 21:10
Password to be spread through XFire and this thread

Who can play??
Everybody is welcome. As long as you enjoy playing on Lanarchy's servers. During the "matches", the captain will give out positions, or what to do, or tactics etc... These must be followed, so that everybody enjoys the game.

Two ideas for picking the teams are:
-Having a "sign up sheet" online, where people can "sign up" and pick their server, and maybe post their xfire or other details so we can get in touch if needed. This is the most likely option to begin with.
-Closing the server, and then picking the teams. This may happen when it gets popular :D


I have an idea

Post it here! (http://www.lanarchy.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=3647&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=30)
or PM crippler or me

Remember, these games are going to be fun, light hearted competition :D

Theres now a .html page including a signup form here (http://www.lanarchy.co.uk/csm/csm.html), or alternatively you can type #csm in-game.

Remember that #csm ingame minimizes CS though, for some people at least.

10-09-05, 10:17 PM

Penguin

captains need to still be finalized and maps decided, that will probably be decided after the weekend. We need loads of people, and I think the first date will be set once we have enough people :D

Hopefully the first CSM will be held next friday (21st). I need to chat with McB and Cripps though first.

Its basically been held a bit due to the steam update, then the server crashes.

My apoligies for the lateness as well :D

helios
07-10-05, 11:37 PM
bumb? you mean bump?

helios
07-10-05, 11:50 PM
sorry, the bob the builder avatar makes you a really tempting target....

But on topic, how are the numbers in each team atm penguin?

McBain
08-10-05, 07:38 AM
It might be nice to start a thread for each team, post all the players signed up? Post some detail as to what time their first match is, etc.

If your still after the mailing list, ask Wintermute. Best way is to e-mail him.

pitchblack
08-10-05, 08:15 AM
How many rounds will there be in the matches? is it going to be league? i think
the winning server*cough**assault* should get a prize, like a mod of course for a week or something.

FIDDY
08-10-05, 09:28 AM

Yeah, my apologise to you all for the delay on this, and also to Penguin who has taken on basically everything concerned with this because i've been working lates, and unavailable to help much on this.

Altho i am still going to be working lates the next couple of weeks (including the 21st unfourtunatly) i'll try to continue with some input on this and i am sure it will go very well :)

Monkfish

Man I totally forgot about this. I'll still own you all though.

Penguin
20-10-05, 03:26 PM
Don't worry if you can't make it guys. There's loads of other people, we can fill gaps from unregistered people, and theres many more weeks to come.

It's this Friday, at 8PM, on the Custom Map server.

Sorry about the late notice, it's my fault :|

Skavorn
20-10-05, 04:10 PM

please reply to me soon
But there was an e-mail sent out yesterday, you have actually signed up (http://www.lanarchy.co.uk/csm/csm.html) for CSM haven't you? Of course you would do that before hassling people repeatedly in this thread, right?

Kbrothers
21-10-05, 08:45 AM
anyway bout 6 posts back i asked if it was ok if i joined late? well is it?

Simon
21-10-05, 08:57 AM

yeah, good game, didn't like the map though :(; still, had fun nevertheless

Damn It Im Shite Tonight
21-10-05, 08:46 PM
Sorry penguin, I'm being feeble minded - I've checked the front page on this site and can't see it, is it still there or been taken off until next time? Was there another front page you meant?

pitchblack
21-10-05, 08:51 PM
http://www.lanarchy.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=3675&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
front page of this thred.

McBain
21-10-05, 09:19 PM
So did it go ahead? Is it still going ahead? Penguin, please mail me a small write up, I'll post it as a news item (or if you like, you post it, I'll edit anything I think needs editing, and then make it a news item :) - please include an MVP too - for each team perhaps?)

Sc00by
21-10-05, 09:23 PM
Sorry I wasn't there, but was shifting stuff in readiness for Lanarchy 21 tomorrow...

I'll make sure I'm at the next one!

helios
21-10-05, 10:26 PM
snap sc00bs, i was about to pword the server and set the stuff up though, sounds like it was a blast. :thumbs:

When's the next one?

FIDDY

ArTFuL DoDGeR
22-10-05, 01:14 PM
NO WAY did i miss the CSM match damn i was out with a few mates of mine, and tbh i couldnt really see it happening with people who are not members of the Lanarchy website not being able to be informed about.
anyways how did it go was there a big turnout??

Stokes :(

FIDDY
22-10-05, 08:31 PM
there was about 6 a-side
it was a decent game with me coming second on the server behind zona :evil: i think it will be better next time when it is more organised
cheers FIDDY

dre
22-10-05, 08:54 PM
Yeh i would agree. Great choice of map great fun cant wait till next time :)

Simon
22-10-05, 11:29 PM
Great choice of map
No it wasn't! also the custom team had an advantage, as they know the map...

McBain
23-10-05, 09:17 AM
That will be kinda the idea, with a whole 'home' and 'away' thing when we get going properly.

Penguin, can people start spreading the word about this weeks? Same time and date?

Also, are everyone that filled the form out on the mailing list?

ArTFuL DoDGeR
23-10-05, 05:28 PM
Could we not put this into the servers, Like when it comes up with "want to join lny click #LNY" and "want to meet the people from this server click #Motd" could we not put the date and time etc into one of thse???

Stokes

McBain
23-10-05, 05:54 PM
It does come up doesn't i? 'Feeling competitive? Say #csm' and 'Defend your server, say #csm'...

Penguin, could you do a motd to advertise the csm? I can then switch that and the LNY recruitment MOTD back and forth from time to time.

Simon
23-10-05, 07:45 PM
Yes, it does come up, exactly like that

ArTFuL DoDGeR
23-10-05, 10:44 PM
I know it does that trying to get people involved but could we not also have one along the lines of "CSM match on Friday At 7pm on "IPaddress""

Stokes

helios
23-10-05, 10:55 PM
that is possible, but it means some one going through and editing the adverts file every week for all of our servers.

McBain
30-10-05, 09:03 AM
Btw, what happened to this on Friday? Not happen?

Penguin
30-10-05, 09:53 AM
I didn't think that we had enough people, with a week perhaps not being enough avliabilty. I'm away next week, so is the 11th November ok for the next one?

Penguin
05-11-05, 03:23 PM
A little bump for next event.

When and Where will it be?
NEXT EVENT- Friday 11th November Custom map server.
Dust2/Office team play Custom twice at 20:00
Assault team play Custom twice at 21:10
Password to be spread through XFire and this thread

I'm putting it down to lycos sucking big time.
Really sorry about that, was looking forward to it :cry:
Hope its okay if I apply again.
Again, my apologies.
