Old Vs New

Postby Maxi » Sat Mar 10, 2012 2:19 pm

Seeing as this game has been around for over 4 years now, an idea would be to have old vs players.

Note: this isn't kiddos vs adults.

The idea is anyone who started from beta-2008 (or stretch to June 2009 if they're aren't enough players) against July 2009-2012.

map would be pl_2way_b2

which is here: http://www.gamebanana.com/tf2/maps/90455

Also in case you young whipper snappers don't know what 2way is: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1190

2way crashes the server, Dan would have to update it.

Yeah, Dan tried to do some quick fixes when we tried playing it last year, but it still crashed :(

Aside from that, I like the event idea. The only trouble would be seeing if there are 12 people who are still playing from beta TF2...

That sounds like fun!

Maybe we could play one of the original maps and one of the maps that was added after the "new" people joined.

I started playing right before the medic update where the Blutsauger, Kritzkrieg, Übersaw were introduced. Does that count as old?

Just as a note, I have no clue why 2way crashes the server. It runs fine on my computer. So don't expect me to be able to fix it :P I also have a newer version that I didn't upload to FPSBanana (GameBanana I guess) that is a bit "better" but it still crashes the server.
