        Q3 CCTF Mod ClassicCTF - News...

Update - Saturday, September 23
V1.0 Released - by Dekard & Thumper @ ClassicCTF
Classic CTF version 1.0 has been released.
Many mirrors are up for you to choose from.
While you're downloading check out the new Readme for V1.0.

Make sure you delete your old /cctf folder before installing 1.0 (or you may encounter problems), it is a clean installation.

We are aware Point Release 1.25 was released just a short time earlier.. 1.25 is not compatible with 1.17. You cannot upgrade to 1.25 if you want to play Classic CTF right now. We will release a new beta in the near future that is 1.25 compatible. Server admins, if you are running a CCTF server (or ra3 and any other mod), do NOT upgrade to 1.25 until the MOD supports it.

CCTF v1.0 - by Kerbuffel @
The v1.0 release of Classic CTF is only days away now. This Friday, you'll get showered with Classic CTF goodness! We've gotten some early estimations on how big the download will be. Modem users will find this disheartening, but the release will be between 25 and 40 meg, which has become fairly average among mods these days. Those are early estimates, and we'll see if we can get you exact weight later this week. Also, there won't be a smaller upgrade available for people who have the beta already, unfortunately.

The super nailgun. Six rapidly rotating barrels of sharp pointy pain. The classic peice of weaponry dates back to the early Quake era, where men were men, and women were men too, because there was only one player model. The Super Nailgun is a blast to play around with, and it's not nearly as girly as the pink Plasma Gun.

 KOI: league-points:0, score: 1308, caps: 10

 DM6: '... just chaos....'

CL/CLL ChampionsLeague

To get rid of spike-cheats and other proxies the CLL decided some weeks ago that everyone participating in a Q2CTF match must use the Xania proxie, the Xania proxie has abilities to check for things like modified player models (spikes) etc...

Cheating idiots! - by Sir @
Once again it's time for idiots to destroy the q2ctf-scene! The guys at the CLL have worked hard and put allot of time and effort to make an excellent league, but even before the league has started the first report of people trying and succeeding to work around xania appears....

The System:
The first ladder season (CLL) will come to an end in December 2000. The teams ranked within the top ten will then continue on to fight in the ChampionsLeague (CL), a playoff based system... champions will be the clan that manages to win the final.

This is boring :( - by Divine @
I keep getting mail from people who have worked their way around Xania with modelcheats, and that makes me VERY frustrated. We have put so many hours of our sparetime to make this league, and to make it fair, still there are morons out there trying to cheat their way around it. What the fuck is wrong with you guys? Can't you play with a pure quake, do you really suck so much you need to cheat all the time?

We are in a discussion with Xania crew at the moment, and I really hope they will help us out here. Anyhow, until we have a safe proxy that prevent cheats, we might change the rules a bit. You will be informed either in #thescene or

Random Q3CTF Shot
      BarrysWorld BWQ3L-CTF Season 3

Week 5 - by BigFoot @ BWQ3L-CTF
A few clans dropped by the wayside this week, i've reversed all their scores to default wins to the opposition. It is quite possible a couple more clans will confirm they are dropping before the end of the week, so look out for news of cancelled games.
All tables and results should be up to date by time you read this.

The next map is of course Harsh Grounds. If you haven't allready, get it from here : []

Harsh Grounds - Map: harshg
Now, as this map is not symmetrical (the flag areas have a similarish sort of area, but other than that the layouts of the bases, and their entrances, are different) it will be played twice with teams changing colour at half time. So, there is only 1 map to practice for this week, but you will have to know both sides of it.
This map should be in the rotation of the BarrysWorld public CTF servers, or at least votable on them.

You can find demos of some of the leagues games on the BarrysWorld FTP: [FTP Season3] is where to point ya browsers/ftp clients. Each week more demos will be added, so its worth checking back regularly.

There is a change to the prize on offer for Division1 this season. The winning clan will now be able to choose from the current prize (vouchers + bw stuff), or a dedicated port on one of our rentable clan servers which will be coming online soon + bw stuff.

Upcoming CCTF league - by BigFoot @ BWQ3L-CTF
With the release of the first non-beta CCTF imminent, i will be contacting all clans who registered an interest in participating in our CCTF league shortly. I am looking for somebody who would be interested in running this league, if you have a keen interest in CCTF and a fair bit of free time and are interested, whilst i cant promise you fame and fortune we are putting in place a scheme to reward all our admins as much as we can. (For example we currently offer admin-only servers amongst other stuff.)

CTF1 Report - by Malle @
We started out on eDome, playing CTF1.
The lineup consisted of Blackstar, ele, Nikodemus, Malle and PRAYER.
Finteam was very lucky as we got the amp and accel in the beginning. That didn't seem to disturb Sweden at all though, as they capped two times after some minutes of gameplay. But after heavy struggling on the mid, we finally managed to get a hold of the game and made some successful attacks. Finteam managed to even it up, 2-2. We were not satisfied with that though, as we successfully took the quads while ele continuously stealed the flag with his mighty grapple. The caps started flowing, making it a total score of 8-2 in finteam's favor.

CTF2 Report - by Malle @
Next up was CTF2, on Noll8's server.
Lineup: ele, Furious, Nikodemus, Malle, PRAYER.
This time it was the other way around, Sweden got the amp and doc in the beginning. Finteam took the first quad but didn't manage to harm anyone with it. Then the focus moved on to the second quad. Finteam showed its superiority again and got the second quad, but got obliterated in the enemy base, losing doc and disruptor. After 2 minutes finteam got its first cap, and got the upper hand. Sweden gave finteam a very hard time anyway, but were losing in caps as the game went on. At some point Sweden managed to cap once, but that didn't help the overall score. Finteam came out victorious, winning the map 6-1. The final score was 14-3 in finteam's favor, hurray!

We want to thank the NSL organisators, Baal and Ebola, for making this all possible, and Sweden for a very good game in the finals without any problems.
