Newbs News – Yay for ArenaPosted on: April 25th, 2009 by octo dhd
Its been a little while since I’ve wrote anything. We have quite a few upcoming events / special nights / etc planned.
First off – the HlstatsX:CE Stats will be archived and reset May 1st, they will be restarted sometime on May 4th.
Saturday Apr 25th – ‘No Spies Saturday 2Fort’ Where: Server #5 (126.96.36.199:27015 ) 3-6PM PDT
Sunday Apr 26th – ‘Stats Free Sunday’ Where: All Newbs servers with HlstatsX – No stats after first map change on Sunday, until first map change on Monday.
Monday Apr 27th – ‘Melee Madness 2Fort’ Where: Server #5 6PM?-8PM? PDT (This will be posted on the forums)
Tuesday Apr 28th – ‘Payload Playtest/Special Stats Night’ Where: Server #7 7PM-??? PDT Event Details
Friday May 1st – ‘Stock CP Speed Rotation’ Where: Server #8 6:00-9:00pm PDT.
I’m also working on bringing some new custom events to server #4, these should take place sometime in the near future – I’d like to do a play test of both of the mods done by Cmptrwz before we open them up to the ‘public’ =)
We have added an ARENA Rotation server due to popular demand – we’ll be testing it for a month to see how popular it ends up. Its based out of Chicago. Its ip is 188.8.131.52:27015 – I’ll try to schedule a few planned sessions for the regulars to see if we can boost the popularity of it. If you’d like to be a part of the server start up team please let one of the following people know: Grey Devil, Ggglygy, irlubomirsky, or octo-dhd :)
In other news I’ve been informed by YOU’RE ALL SPIES!!!!! that he is retiring from TF2 / Newbs Server Administration. Many of you know SPIES, and have had him help you out on the jump maps, or played with him on the payload servers. SPIES has contributed a great deal to the Newbs Community both by bringing in new quality players, and for proposing some of the community changes that have brought us to where we are as a community today (Such as the jump servers). You will be missed, good luck in whatever you decide to do heading forward. I do still plan on having the Newbs San Diego meet-up though, so please remember to post in the thread so we can schedule a date that works for the most people.
