UT full vers match: SysOpt vs. AnandTech
---names updated 4/28 7:40am PT
Yep, you read correctly. Team AnandTech (well, actually Jator ) has challenged Team SysOpt to a UT full version match. My guess is that it won't stop at just one.
They have begun gathering support on their side, about 15 people so far. ( http://anandforums.gisystech.com/mes...hreadid=158292 ) The game type is unknown, but it will probably consist of CTF with a possible team deathmatch game tossed in for flavor.
Right now, people confirmed to play are:
Mark, our news editor (actually his job will be in question if he doesn't hehe)
Unfortunately, the question of a server is still unknown for sure. Lord Demios from AnandTech might be able to put up a temporary one on a T1, but that's still a maybe. So if anyone can get up a machine runnning UT full version server on a single T1 or better, let us know.
The date and time are also to be worked out. We'll try to make it so the most people that want to can play.
So for all of you that have just been itching to get even with AnandTech for the past year and a half, here's your chance.
ANANDTECH, PREPARE TO SUICIDE
Here are two threads that reference the match and got it going initially... now, keep everything here. http://www.sysopt.com/forum/Forum7/HTML/000710.html http://www.sysopt.com/forum/Forum7/HTML/000717.html
So reply if you want to stick it to AnandTech...
BRING IT ON
(either my vocabulary is quite limited or I just like that phrase )

How much bandwidth (in GB) would hosting a UT game for a weekend take approx? If it isn't too bad, I could try and set up a UT server on my dedicated server (with instructions) which is on a DS3 connection, and I get 220ms pings to with a 56k modem.
The only difficult thing would be uploading the CD contents to it, as I'm on 56k.
Anyway, count me in for whatever server it is going to be on.
Ain't no maybe about it i'm IN.
count me in as well--this sounds like it will be alot of fun
Im in, gimme IP
Sounds like Jay's chickening out.
This is sad as Jay's become a bit of a regular around here and represents the face (or text if ya like) of Anand.
BTW, I might exempt myself from the tournament. We all know I'm not that good at UT and since I am the fight promotor (Taking the Don King mantle away from Virge), part of my fee for arranging the fight would be an exemption to the qualifying round.
Jay don't let the side down, show up and be blown down.
I am willing to render my services and fight for the glory of team sysopt anyway I can however all I have is the demo of UT...no full version... oh well.....
I got an itchy cable modem
No not chickening out. Just trying to give myself an automatic bid without haveing to go through the qualifying rounds.
LD should also get a bye as he would be hosting the site, other than that, I'd say open it up to everyone.
Nice one Jay it wouldn't have been the same without ya.
Btw - what version will we be useing and will it matter. ie: v4.13 i think is the latest.
bkehoe: The bandwidth is proportional to the number of users in the game. I believe you need about 4K/s per user (I could be off by a K or two). So, for an optimal scenario, lets say we have 20 participants playing CTF for 60 minutes. That's about 288MB of bandwidth. Adjust that number accordingly for fewer players or length of gameplay.
Count me in..........(let me get some mre practice......I havent played much in a couple of weeks.........)
I can lay some good smackdown with the sniper rifle,even at close range
It would be best to use the latest as any user already there would have a hard time reverting back to an older version (ie uninstall /reinstall).
P.S. Joe, stop by the irc room around 10:30 Wed. night if you can, we are going to be meeting to work out some detils and a rep from your team would be helpful.
