    I'm guilty of this myself. Not as much (total of 6 games on Samplers this week), but I need to agree: it is NOT a problem of spawning without the "best" weapons...

    - You spawn with PG and SG. Use them!

    - The surviving enemies who have weapons aren't healed between rounds. If you did damage to them in previous round, they won't survive long, or they will lose time searching for health while the rest searches for weapons.

    - You get 6 (?) seconds before previous round ends and new one starts. If you spawn next to a guy aiming at you with rockets, RUN!

    - Whatever your starting weapons / round delay / spawn protection, you will ALWAYS die if you spawn between 3 enemies.

    - If I spawn between 3 of you, I'll often find a nearby Fog of Death to jump into. Pro tip ;)

    - Another pro tip: you have to thaw your teammates. Really... In the games I've played, 10:0 scores happened only if thaw-to-death ratio was below 1:4. A 20 minute 10:4 game with over 130 thaws still felt very close and each round was a thriller!

    Other thing to consider: this is Quake, a game where skill should lead to win in the end. And this is the first time many of the players have tried Freeze Tag, which explains why they can't thaw etc.

    Maybe it would make sense to keep tier 4's or "golden tier" players from the Samplers, but on the other hand, we push the most noobish down to tier 2 faster :) So maybe it helps "seeding" the initial skill rating for this less popular game mode?

    PS. Remember, today is Freeze Tag Friday on Frankfurt server, starting around 20 CEST.

    We play premium maps and switch to bigger ones as the players connect.

    Invitations for standard players can be requested over IRC (preferably on #clanchill). Everyone is welcome! (Provided you behave!)

    I have heard three reasons:

    1. The blood looks really dumb on most of the models nowadays

    2. Games with blood in them are illegal to stream in Germany, where a lot of event coverage is done as well as many users.

    3. T for Teen = more players than M for mature

    This is a sampler to get people interested enough to pay subs, so how about limiting users to a max of 5 games per day per user account. This should stop the people sitting on the server preventing others from giving it a try.

    Also, after 5 games how about sending an automated email to the user offering a 3 month trial premium membership for say 1/3rd the cost of regular premium. You've got their interest now try to get them to join up. At the moment I don't see a join between them playing a sampler and being encouraged to join up, so this would solve that.

    It would be great for pro accounts to be able to create FreezeTag games accessible by others without having to send invitations.
    My friends are not always online and I sit in my empty server waiting for someone to join, and then abandon and try joining the sample server...
