    Made a few innovations lately.

    Pro CA
    Code:
    {"maps":["almostlost","dismemberment","hektik","heroskeep","lostworld","seamsandbolts"],"cvars":{"g_gametype":4,"premium":0,"teamsize":4,"g_startingWeapons":4351,"sv_warmupReadyPercentage":0.01,"g_allowSpecVote":1,"g_voteLimit":1,"g_timeoutCount":0,"g_friendlyFire":1,"dmflags":0}}
    It's the way Clan Arena is supposed to be played. With friendly fire and Chain Guns.

    Quakelands
    Code:
    {"maps":["almostlost","electrichead","hektik","heroskeep","lostworld","seamsandbolts"],"cvars":{"premium":0,"sv_warmupReadyPercentage":0.01,"g_allowSpecVote":1,"g_voteLimit":1,"g_timeoutCount":0,"g_startingArmor":100,"g_startingHealthBonus":0,"g_regenArmor":2500,"g_startingWeapons":11}}
    You start with a shield that regenerates when you're not taking damage. There are also grenades.

    FFA has always been about frags, not about time. This is just a different way of looking at FFA and those really fast runs are fun to watch. This is me, producing entertainment and making something worth achieving.

    When I reinstate a regular tournament for FFA it will be score based and time won't be a factor, at least not to begin with.

    Of course for the runs to be quick, there can't be much of a competition.
    So basically you're just encouraging the worst side of Quake where people seek to destroy opponents who are nowhere near their skill level for 'entertainment' by giving them all a record for doing so... why not make it a proper competition where they just have 15x bots on easy skill level and see who can get the quickest run then?

    I have to agree with others here. In my mind when the server is filled by top players then the fun and entertainment begins.

    And to be honest, you don't even need to have a great skills to win a ffa game in a ridiculous short time. You just need luck; the shorter time you want, the more luck you need. And i think this is the main reason why there is not much of interest in "quakelive done quick" projects.

    At least I don't want to discourage anyone from playing the game. If you are a tier 4 player, then you better get used to playing versus the best players anyway. This video collection gives away a lot of tricks used for scoring many frags in a short amount of time. It's not just entertainment, it's also education.

    These monthly map pools with 15 maps make it possible to have a short term competition like this. Speed runs are very rare anyway, a majority of the games played will be too difficult for everything to click, but once it does, it's really great to see.

    Since there haven't been much activity on the Time Attack front lately I have decided to allow records above the previous time limits. We now accept all demos below 10 mins on all maps and 15 mins on large maps.
