iCTF2k8 - Welcome back!



WELCOME BACK EVERYONE! Notice anything interesting? Yes, our name changed over the holiday season and I know what you're all thinking - "Isn't it a bit redundant?" - Well, yes and no. Yes because it may be a bit confusing....and no because it's now 2008!

The old website address of ictf2k7.com will just take you here instead. In fact, you could either visit ictf2k7.com or iCTF2k8.com - it doesn't matter! Anyways, I hope you're all as excited as we are to get some games scheduled and played!

I know this little holiday break caught everyone off guard and while I wish everyone who is still currently listed as playing in the tournament would come back - I know this probably will not be true. Captains, if you are missing players, let me know whom and I will get back to you ASAP on this issue in effort to replace them.

I sincerely hope that most if not all players do come back to play. We are here ready to rock, we just need people to play the games! If worse comes to worse, I will redo the tournament in a team-based format, and possibly move to CPMA. Who knows?

Anyways, we're looking forward to seeing you all again. Be sure to update your bookmarks to iCTF2k8.com and the IRC Channel has changed to #iCTF2k8 as well.

Week 5 starts today! Please check the schedule page here to find out who your team is playing!

WEEK 5 SCHEDULE

Week 4 & The Holidays



Well, Week 4 is coming to an end. I've extended it another week so the last few teams who need to play can finish up and do their thang! Just keep in mind, I am aware I've extended quite a few weeks..but this will be the last one. I will start handing out forfeit wins to teams who show up with at least 4 players!

On another note, the holidays are coming! This means iCTF2k7.5 will be on hiatus until the New Year (once all games in this season have been played), with Week 5 resuming MONDAY, JANUARY 7TH, 2008. And yes, we will come back as iCTF2k8!

I've been busy with work but that hasn't stopped me. If you think you won't be able to come back on MONDAY, JANUARY 7TH, 2008 please let me or any other admin know. I Hope to revamp the site, standings, and results page a bit during this time off. Above all, like I said before, this will allow our players to enjoy the holidays. If I had this thing running through X-Mas and New Years, I doubt we would get many games played.

I expect you all to return at full capacity after the New Year to finish this great tournament up! After this, who knows..I may run a team based tournament :)

So in closing, Enjoy the holidays..your time off from work, school, the tournament..etc. And have a Happy New Year, Merry X-Mas, Krazy Kwanza, etc etc. Big Thanks to T4k, LK, All Admins, Refs, and Players! Without you, this wouldn't have been possible.

iCTF2k8 TO RESUME: MONDAY, JANUARY 7TH, 2008.

Week 3 In Progress



Well, I finally have some time to write the news so I figured...what the hell, right?

Anyways, Week 3 is currently in progress, and yes...Because of Thanksgiving (hope you had a great one) Week 3 will be 2 weeks long. (11/19/07 - 12/02/07) I'll be sure to put this up on the schedule page.

People keep quitting for some reason and I always need more people signing up, so if you have any friends, send them our way. In fact, three teams are short a player....oh well, I'm trying and theres not much I can do.

So, hope you all had a great holiday and are ready to play some games! I'll see you guys around the servers, just not as much anymore. That reminds me - if anyone wants to help me 'run' the tournament in any way, please let me know and I'll find something for you to do. Everything I do is very time consuming!

Week 2 Has Started!



We had some great games in Week 1! Sadly, we had our first forfeit match, as well. Team 7 had to forfeit to Team 2 due to lack of players.

Week 2 will be the first official 'week long' week. It will be from 11/12/07 - 11/18/07 (Monday to next Sunday). I have updated the results, schedule and standings pages to reflect everything, so please check those out!

Also, we now have a NYC server, thanks to T4K. Thanks again, bud!

Finally, you should all check out the shoutcast page. I put some synch'd shoutcast demos up! All you need is an internet browser and the capability to use flash! Big thanks to LK for the shoutcasts!

That's it for now - I don't want to extend Week 2 another week, so let's try to schedule the games before this Sunday! Thanks again!

Tournament Update!



First off, I'd like to thank EVERYONE for helping out with the tournament....T4K for server, voice and GTV hosting, Hockalugie for the new Dallas server, Zork for the site code...the referees...the list goes on!

Next, I'd just like to inform you that the first match of the tournament has been played! It was a blast! Team 6 took the win against Team 1 on ospctf2 and q3wcp17. Two more matches have been scheduled, and you can view the current week schedule here, and the results of said game here.

Also, I'd just like you to know I'm always working on and updating the site. Sometimes it takes a while for your internet browser to notice the changes, and I'm currently working on that, to keep the browsers from caching the site. I will be updating the results page and the schedule page a lot in these coming weeks. Be sure to refresh this page often!

Finally, I'd just like to say thank you to everyone again, for ALL of the support. Captains, don't forget to finish scheduling those matches. We want to see some games!

**Servers and Stats pages have been updated. Oh yea, don't forget about Daylight Saving Time.

Week 1 Has Started!



Week 1 of iCTF2k7.5 has started! You can view the schedule for Week 1 here and the Match Information here.

Week 1 will actually be 2 full weeks so the captains and teams can get used to scheduling, playing, and the tournament format.

The tournament structure is official: it will be round robin! You can check the Rules page for more info. I will be updating it as time goes on, and explain the play offs soon.

What does this mean though? And what about the holidays coming up? Well, the tournament will be 9 weeks long, in addition to the playoffs. Why is this good? Because the first half of the tournament will be played before Christmas, and the second half will be played after New Years! This allows players to spend time with their families and relax instead of wasting time on a game :-).

After Christmas/New Years break however, I expect this thing to be back in full swing, and it will probably be renamed to iCTF2k8! Ha!

On a final note, BIG THANKS goes to Zork for helping me with the site code, and everyone who contributed a logo! (Zork, Sammy, Eclipse, and Slants RL friend) The logos are being displayed randomly!

Ok captains, go out and schedule some matches!

iCTF2k7.5 - It's back!



Well, well, well, what do we have here? Could it be another Quake 3 OSP iCTF Tournament? I think it is! Ha!

Welcome back everyone! iCTF2k7 is back as iCTF2k7.5 and everyone is looking forward to another fun tournament. As of today, the website is up and running - as well as the forums(but they've been up for quite some time).

I still have a lot of work to do (ie, figuring out how I'll get some captains and touching up the site) but most everything here is complete. Feel free to register a name on the forums and then sign-up for the tournament if you haven't already!

Before I go I would just like to say thanks to everyone for supporting me, this tournament and the community. I'm really looking forward to iCTF2k7.5! Shoutouts go to Decebaal and Defiance (for Rail Wars and admin help), T4K and buddha (server hosting/sponsoring), Clan =AB=, and the rest of you for helping me out!

More news will be posted on the front page/forums as it comes up. I hope to get captains and start this tournament by next week (10/22/07).
