I will also vouch for Triggerhappy. He was a proficient player, and I believe I saw him in the same game St. Vald did.

Oh, and eveyone remember to say hello to your fellow clan members!


Same server, but a bit later. Ty, 3 recomendations :D! I played on the MG server, great performance, but only 1 vs. 1 (little or no lag). 0wn3d the humie.

Where is the MG server based? I encountered horrendous lag!  :(

I think this clan needs to focus alot on coordination and teamwork. And communicating as much as possible. In a useful manner.

Indeed. Having the website up will make it a lot easier for people to communicate with eachother. For right now it would be best if everyone would put some kind of messenger contact in their profile so that other members could communicate directly with them. It would be nice if we could all just pick 1 form of communication, but i'm sure everyone has prefrences.

I had a beautiful ping of 60 on the clan server... nice work tuple! I hope the lag ventris was experiencing was only temporary. Maybe as we get more members we can set up other servers that span the globe.

I'm in UK and got a ping of 100 (rather good for me. Its usually around 150).

Saying that though I do use AOHell and I think one of their centers isnt too far from the server. Might do a traceroute just out of interest...

Server is in Chicago Il on Speakeasy's network, which boast that every customer is one hop from a POP (point of presence.)

I don't see what the prob is, I get a 1-5 ping  :P  Ok, it's typically 20-30 feet away from me :D

I've seen up to 7 people on it (incl. me as spec) and it looks like 6 is the upper limit of users (though I was remote at the time, so it could have been network congestion.)  Lag was between 150-250 for everyone at that point.  Nothing major when I was local with 4 users though.

I think my contract is up with Speakeasy, so maybe I'll see about improving the bandwidth (which is 1.5/384 right now)

I'll be adding contact info to my profile.  I'm at work between around 7am to 6pm central and my job can get pretty hectic so I apologize ahead of time if I can't respond quickly :-)

I agree Captain Ventris, so I've updated my profile and created an irc channel on irc.quakenet.org by the name of #MGTrem
Unfortunately, MG and Mercenaries was taken.

To keep channel operator status, I've set up Tuple_wk to hold channel operator status, though that user will not typically be there.  So if you say hello, it won't respond :D

I'll grant operator status to any members who connect, especially if they have an always available machine to hold the channel!

Cheers, and I hope this helps with communication

this sounds like a pretty cool clan concept, i might want to join.  I play pretty well most of time, though i could use some work with marauders and basilisks cause i specialize in goons.  I'm usually in the top few in any game as a human player.

I've spent many small games helping teach people how to play, i like to help people out.  I'm usually reluctant to join clans, but i like the sound of this one.  If you want me i'm in.

I've been spectating [NEX]Phreak on AKKA for a while.

I can vouche for his skills.

He had high kill scores, but more importantly he seemed to focus on what the team needed at the time, an important ability.

Let me know when you're on and I'll give ya the rights.  I'm using tjw's mods, so you may want to use his binaries.

I would definately like for there to be MORE admins :-D

Well today i played with St Vald and I found out how to join your clan and i was wondering if i could. I know i need 3 recomendations and all but i was wondering if you could give me a test of some sort. Maybe a match? or something like it. This wasn't the first time i ran into a member of your clan but back then i was under the handle of "DarkOne" so maybe they don't remember. well get back to me on this plz. E-Mail : shadowdrakev@yahoo.com or my Yahoo instant messager

looks like the server limit is 3v3.  Had a 4v4 game with Wasp and StVald, including some folks from T.T.O, and it was painfully laggy, ending up in me doing a !spec999 as pretty much the whole game froze.  I'm thinking 3v3 with either 2 or 4 reserved spots.  I'll start with 2 and increase if everyone thinks I should.

That server is also running squid, though it's basically for 2 people who rarely use the internet, so at most I'd free up some ram.  To be honest, I think it's the bandwidth and possibly the processor that's the big problem.  I'll see if I can get my hands on a faster server.

Members, to put it plainly, in order to be an admin on the existing }MG{ server, you will need to download the executable at

http://trem.tjw.org/backport/

and use it instead of the one that came with your Tremulous install (the tremulous.exe or tremulous.x86 for linux)

You can find instructions at http://tjw.org/tremulous/ADMIN.txt of how the binary works, but really the best way to learn is to type, in the game,

~/!help

I'll pass around admin access as I see people on the server.

Also, a little later tonight, I will limit the number of users on the server to 6, 2 slots being reservered and requiring a password.  I can change that to however everyone wants it, but 2 open slots for public people and 2 slots for clan members and/or their guest seems a good balance.  Let me know if you feel differently.

I'd say more, but I GOTTA play a round or 3.

Sounds like the right kind of guy, I am interested a bit in what people do not like about clans, and being in them so that we can try to avoid that. I can understand it a bit myself from the few times I gave in and got sucked into some in other games.. primarily the mandantory teamspeak and required practice made the whole thing a hassel for me..

I don't really think a test of this nature might be the kind of thing we would want to do. The idea is more to see how well you interact with your environment in a public server with a team of players of varying skills.
Its not really a skill test/match thing.. its more like a possibility/personality test.
I'm going to be going around maybe under a different name now and again so people don't start trying to change how they act when they see me, but usually i'm on AKKA, and SST, and i've recently started playing a good bit on SATGNU, but if you tell me where you play, I will drop by and keep an eye out for you, and maybe some other people might drop in on you as well.
I'm going to be adding every messenger i could get my hands on to my profile soon..

Also, are we participating as a whole in the tutorial demo project?

I don't want to require it, but its encouraged.. I don't know how much more help they need, but if you haven't already looked at it you should.
