To finish off our holiday of events we will focus on a Team Fortress 2 event to be played in our TF2 server!

How the TF2 Event will work

TF2 Server IP
99.198.122.244:27016
password united

connect via console with
connect 99.198.122.244:27016; password united

TF2 Map rotation

pl_goldrush
cp_dustbowl
cp_well
ctf_2fort
cp_foundry
cp_degrootkeep
pl_badwater


How to win

Since we dont have any set way or real way to balance the winners for this event we will have prizes for the following and we will also do 2 drawings from the list of everyone who connects and gets ranked on the server!

  • Most Sentries Destroyed - pretty simple, and was only thing requested when asked
  • Most Captures - person with the most point captures
  • Most overall melee kills - person with the most melee kills
  • Most overall points ( top ranking etc )

We will have a drawing from the poll of players who have joined our server during the event time frame! So just joining the server and playing gets you entered to win something!

The server does have a limited amount of heavies that can be used on the server. you cant use the heavy until its 4v4 i believe and it maxes out at 2 heavies per team if i remember correct.

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes will be handed out for the above listed challenges. The type of prize for each will relate to how many people fall under the challenge. meaning the event that renders the most people getting involved in say more people have melee kills then the others that will be the challenge to get the SSD, the next the head set , and the next the mouse!

to view the ranking of yourself and everyone else on the server in real time visit our stats page!

http://stats.puggaming.net/ or more so http://stats.puggaming.net/hlstats.php?game=tf

Any questions concerns of commnets feel free to post here!


New Years TF2 event for prizes and more!

AWW.  My sentries Sad

However, sounds like a fun event, I'm sure a lot of people will have fun.  Glad to see the tf2 back up, and see another game oriented event!  No one has an excuse to not partake, it's a free game... and my old lappy could run tf2.  :|

First of all, I have no idea where these points come from. How come some people get more points for a kill than me? ;_;

Also, does this not identify by Steam ID? I changed my name to whoever in first place was, typed place into chat, and it told me I was in first?

Also, how are melee kills being tracked?

ANNNND, can you clarify the prize distribution?

Sorry for the question, but it's been irritating me for the time I've been playing.

Prizes are clearly detailed in the top in how they will be giving away.

Yes they track steam id based.

Melee kills are tracked on my end.

Some guns give more points then others.

edit i changed it so almost every gun / weapon in game gives the same point modifier..

Also note you will se ein game when people get points etc.. 5 points for a win on each round is big etc

bans on the server have been given out to the people caught placing sentries and destroying your own. why the fuck anyone would tried to exploit such a fun and free event is beyond me and kinda rages me..

you can see EVERYTHING someone does via the events page on the stats page..

example.. mr rank 2 on the server DDR..

http://stats.puggaming.net/hlstats.php?mode=playerhistory&player=829&page=2

and

http://stats.puggaming.net/hlstats.php?mode=playerhistory&player=829&page=4

and it goes on and on and on..

also Mutank

http://stats.puggaming.net/hlstats.php?mode=playerhistory&player=836&page=2 you get the fucking point..

and LB« Agentbravojr mr rank 4

http://stats.puggaming.net/hlstats.php?mode=playerhistory&player=832&page=3

cmon.. use some common fucking sense..

Quote from: ddrsensation
You're being hugely mistaken.

Although the engineer does give you many points, generally running gunslinger requires you to build a sentry immediately after one is destroyed. It's a standard engineer metagame. The mini-sentries have 100hp and die, just like that. Even if they don't get destroyed, it's common to

It's one thing to remove points. It's quite another to give me a warning and then ban me, but I was
not given ANY form of a chance to change anything that I've been doing wrong. Your rules did not establish anything about this exploit.

When something like that isn't established, it only makes sense to do whatever it is in your power to get the most points possible. In this case, playing engineer NORMALLY with the gunslinger, no exploits whatsoever, is what I did.

I request to be unbanned. If I have been seen using what YOU consider exploits, then message me and I'll stop. However, if I persist, you can make a final ban. All I request is warning before any actions are taken toward me. You can add me on Steam if you have to.

http://www.steamcommunity.com/id/ddrsensation


So i have been notified by him about this..

However my reply to this will be done public as should what he said to me about it.

Yes it seems liable in a sense this is how it works and how it was done.. however the fact he and others placed the sentries themselves over and over is not acceptable. and should be an obvious to give them a +1 up on everyone else. you dont have to have much common sense to have thought doing something like this to gain 'free' points over and over and over again would be considered cheating / exploiting etc in any sense.

Thus there is no warning for this. its a ban.

Sure if this was done in a public server  / something being ran everyday etc with long term affect maybe. However sense it is being done / was done during an event like this is uncalled for.

I wont even mention the "bans" and "restrictions"  i get when i google the gunslinger being used in competitive play.. its banned? there is a reason for it im sure lol however i have not or will not ban anything except the sole use of exploiting it for more points.

I should at least be unbanned with my score reset.

When you run a competitive giveaway, it only makes sense to do whatever possible to gain the most points. When no rules are established and when no warnings are given, I can't assume that I'm doing anything wrong. I'm doing whatever I can to hit the top of the leaderboards, and if that means running a gunslinger engineer, that's what's going to be done.

The mindset during a competition is far different than the mindset of pubbing. When something like an SSD or a headset is on stake (something I would highly appreciate obtaining), what is considered common sense? How do you know that something is wrong when nothing is telling you that it's wrong? A warning and a score reset would be far more appropriate than banning me, as it would give me another chance to win _legitimately_ and it would let me know what is considered exploits or not.

Whatever it takes to win a competition will be done. A ban without warning is absurd, and I have not done anything wrong to my knowledge.

I still request a 2nd chance: being unbanned and having my score reset to starting, and being given a 2nd chance to win without using anything that you consider exploits.

I also speak for anybody else who was banned. Now that it's known that we're not allowed to use this exploit, if we're caught using it again, the ban will be justified.
