Casual match making is here!

Post by Fallen Leaves » July 6th, 2016, 11:50 am

I don't know how many people play Dirty Bomb in the community anymore, I usually play with Rigney, Tykur and Raider but those are more for fun matches than anything serious. I've debated about getting into competitive DB but was never sure where to start, so this would be a nice way to test the waters and see where I stand. I would love to see more people get involved with this, competitive holds near and dear to my heart because I did a lot of it in my days of Wolfenstein Enemy Territory. So my question is this - who would be interested in trying casual match making and how many would consider going further into ranked/competitive?

If I didn't explain things well enough (which I'm sure I didn't) here's the video DBs youtube channel put out today talking about the new changes.

Looking at the server browser today I saw that competitive/ranked matches are back and still demand some credits to join. From what I can tell it goes in seasons lasting a few months at a time, if we can get enough people to do a team should we consider doing competitive? I haven't tried it yet but would love to

I was actually talking a lot about this with shadda, her main concern was the toxicity levels that normally come of competitive. (Btw since yall would be on the same team as me can I be a sniper without getting complaints for headshots?)

I blew off the thought of people being aggressive because my team in Wolfenstein was so laid back, that would be an issue to talk about and it might steer people away from trying to get into the competitive scene. I guess to me as long as there's a group who play well together, know it's just a game and for fun in the end there would only be concerns with how the other teams act at the end of the day (raging, cursing up a storm, insults etc.). I'm more than willing to try and get something going, test the waters and see who all would like to try competitive, heck even try casual match making; long as we're glorifying God and having fun is what's most important to me

And no, you wouldn't have to worry about sniping complaints :P

I think it'd be best to try and get things moving after the meeting (I think it's tomorrow), that way people who don't frequent the forums have an idea of what's going on. It's encouraging to see a few more people have been playing with us the past week, hopefully that's what we need to get things going

Sadly competitive seems to have the issue of not enough people playing to have decent queue times, so not that many people play it because of that so it increases the first problem. Tykur had a solution that i like of you queue for competitive then play on whatever pub you want and it'll yank you out into competitive when it has a game
