FF.AvD - AvD guild for Fortress Forever


FF.AvD - A Fortress Forever AvD Guild.

Annoyed by the lack of AvD play, myself and a few others have decided to form a guild dedicated to this style of play in FF.

The guild has the following principles:
  • A guild for people with a general interest in AvD/ID (Dustbowl and Avanti style) gameplay, maps, and custom maps.
  • Good communication, both in-game and out.
  • Level of skill of new members is irrelevant - hopefully more experienced members will be willing to teach others if asked.
  • No competitive play undertaken by the guild - though individual members can clan however they like outside the guild.
  • A low tolerance for intentionally disruptive and annoying behaviour, again both in-game and out.
And above all...
  • Fun. It's not the winning... etc

In many ways, there will be similarities to .id I guess (for those who know of that TFC guild), at least in terms of the aims of the guild.

We are pretty much in the process of forming, gauging interest, and so on. As such, currently, we do not have our own servers or forums - for now.

If you wish to join, you can do so by joining our steam group (and letting someone know you've signed up, or something )

Well, for now there are...

Grabbing me on steam is probably easiest if you want in, added a link to my profile to the original post.

Most likely I will join this. This is a great thing to promote, such a wonderful and fun gametype this is.

The server in question can be found at 130.89.149.202:27015 (FF.SNT #3)
As a side note to this I'd like to add that although all FF.SNT admins will have admin powers on the AvD server, none of us will use it actively.
The server has been granted to the FF.AvD guild and will be managed mostly by Pon (and his henchmen)!

So anyone playing with me on it during my murderous rampage will have nothing to fear from myself regarding slap, slay, kick, ban or beacon

I'll make up for the absence of your admin abuse, don't worry

Got to say that it seems that people enjoy this idea. Those past two days I've been able to play AvD and have fun - people got enough skill to make up for the easyness Offense has!

Although I would like to be able to play Sniper on all the maps =p

Well, no plans for that right now... mostly because we don't have enough members to make it worthwhile. But if we ever do get enough, then yeah, I don't see why not.

Not sure how organised they be exactly. Probably just everyone pile into the server and pick a team

Having AvD map nights every once on a while would be win-win.

That has to be one of the best things to happen during my TFC experience =D

Thanks to Kiljen, we now have use of a second server, located in the US.

Original post has been updated with the details.

Can we decide on standard AvD gametype rules, so as we continue to make maps, we can design around the balance needed, instead of adjusting each lua to balnace for the map?

The US server is not completely configured quite yet.

I hope by the end of the week to have everything working, including stats.
