A call to arms.

Was talking to Icarus last weekend and we figured that we could go down to a LAN shop and give Counter Strike: Source a spin. Anyone interested in doing that next game? :)

"Pure Pwnage"

Here's some light-entertainment (although heavy on the file size): Pure Pwnage, a series of home-made episodes centred around gaming. Each episode is fairly large (80-130MB), so be prepared for long download times.

Game on

OK, I guess it's my turn to sound the clarion call to arms for the game this week.

Who do we have? If T is not available, can we get Ludwig? Alternatively, it'll be 2 on 1 matches - we can still train individual skills versus pair work, so it's not that bad.

Serious Cooling

A little something for fw!, from the Cyberathlete Pro League that's being held in Singapore now. That's what I call cooling ...

tried out the Razer v1.6 that I bought. V v v sensitive: I suspect it's not just the sensitivity settings but the resolution of 1600dpi: even with the sensitivity dialled down, the mouse tends to hover/drift if I'm careless. Definitely takes getting used to.

Re: Game tomorrow.

The wife is going to be east...So is it ok to hold the game at Pshrike's place? Any objections?

The WWers

The Gamers

A group photo of sorts, from last Saturday's game. From top left: Twitchy, Campy, Flamey, and I-can't-believe-he's-still-using-THAT-mouse.

Pack and I have been talking about going to see the Cyberathletes Pro League at Padang on Saturday afternoon. Shall we make it a WW field trip, to observe the gaming pros in action?

Interesting mod for our LMGer.

Irritated cos you can't deploy your machine gun in time? Caught with your pants down as you're rounding the corner with your MG34/30 Cal? Well, fret no more! For a limited time only, fire your MG from the hip. Snooch to the nooch.


Edit: Screenshot of the MG34 fired from the hip. Note the red aiming dot , which is not available for the .30cal.

Thoughts on the game: 08th Oct 2005.

Taking the cue from Ickysaurus:

Very nice round of fragging this time around guys. Few points warranting thought on my part:

  1. We're playing better as a team. (At least in 2 man teams.) We're communicating and we're trusting our compatriots more. Also better co-ordination when working on CTF. Pshrike tagged me quite a few times while I was running across the map with the big@$$ flag on my head and that helped us score a few crucial points. When team members pick up the flag, usually it's good when there's a backup in case the flag bearer gets sniped.
  2. A&D. We're figuring out how to hold choke (flag) points as well as attacking flag points. Co-ordination was key to some flags and 2 man teams taking each flag was integral for the W. in Sicily. Also helped when we found alternate routes into the compounds instead of lemming-like assaults through the exact same choke points.
  3. Good that Berliner's found a good backup weapon that is a nice cross between the sniper rifle and an SMG. (No, not the FG42...) Now, if only it came in German, American and Russian equivalents. :)
  4. Ickysaurus is HOT with the flamethrower and Pshrike's WARMING up to it. (Groan) But the flamer's been weapon of choice for the two. I see a niche for both players. (Hehe...2 flamers on a clan team...Schweet...)
  5. We still need to work on tank takedowns. We're not going to have 3 man teams all the time (in fact, pretty rarely at that) and we'll need to figure out how to take down tanks in 2 man teams. Will be pretty tricky but I trust that we'll rise to the occasion.
Well, that's all for me tonight. Once again: Good game, guys.

BTW: I just realised that I can't make it for next Saturday. Can we shift the game back to Friday just for this week?
