View Full Version : HL S11 Week 3 - Barnblitz

September 25th, 2013, 11:52 PM

Ahoy there mateys! Capn' Cold here, back to give you some chilling news (BLU team's eyes only): You've got a package! It's big, it's blue, and rolls across on rails. It's heavy, it's metal, and is deployed solo - not in pairs. It's a bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, BOMB! Now get out there! I'd better hear your team whistling tunes from the latest song on the Ka'Boom album - if you know what i mean. BLU team, proceed to read the Match Play rules.

Psst, RED team. Someone has supplied the BLU team with a bomb and they plan on pushing it into your base. Stop them at all costs.

Match Play:
This week's map is a "stopwatch" map. Stopwatch maps are played in 2 (sometimes 3) separate Match-rounds where each team attacks once in each Match-round. Each Match-round awards one (1) match-point to the team with the shortest offensive time. The Home team has choice whether to attack first or defend first in the first match-round only, alternate thereafter. For the full set of HL rules, see our rules page (http://www.ugcleague.com/rules_tf2h_season2.cfm#1).

Match-round 1:

Team A attacks and Team B defends,
Team B attacks and Team A defends

Match-round 2:
Teams manually switch sides.**

Team B attacks and Team A defends,
Team A attacks and Team B defends.

Match-round 3 (tiebreaker only):
Teams manually switch sides again.**

Team A attacks and Team B defends,
Team B attacks and Team A defends.
When adding scores, each Match-round won by a team counts as 1 point. The first team to win two Match-rounds wins the entire match.
If each team wins a Match-round (scores are tied at 1-1), the third full Match-round is played as a tiebreaker, with teams alternating sides one more time.

**If the config is not manually re-executed, it will automatically switch teams to the correct side at the start of the round, which is why you need to manually switch sides before the start of the next Match-round.

Possible match scores:
2-0 or 2-1

Server Operators:

Authenticate to your server with rcon_password ( rcon_password p455w0rd )
Execute ugc_HL_stopwatch.cfg from the command line ( rcon exec ugc_HL_stopwatch.cfg )
Reload the map. This is necessary for Source TV to start recording ( rcon changelevel pl_barnblitz_pro3 ).
Match Over: Perform step #1, then "rcon exec ugc_off.cfg" to hault Source TV, to save the server log file, and to reset your server to it's normal default server.cfg at map change with your normal server Settings.

* Side-note: Please log into your server provider's control panel and ensure "sv_pure" is set to "2". You may experience some technical difficulties if this is not done, not to mention sv_pure is required to play official UGC matches.

Note to Leaders:

Post the match scores if you are the winner.
Post the results as soon as possible after the match has successfully completed.
If you or your opponent cannot play at default time, you are allowed to play your match at an earlier time. If you need to play your match later in the week, you need an admin/manager approval first.

Can Blu still get open the Red spawn door on last?

I haven't seen any news about this getting fixed, so I assume yes.
