Once again we would like to see you participating in another !sL tournament!
We will start with FFA this time and then move on to iCTF. There are two new maps in the FFA pools and laucin in the iCTF pool. Especially for iCTF you have to make sure to have the latest version of the sauerworld mappack.
Yo ho ho and a bottle of whisky! WAIT WHAT??? Oh right: Thanks to !s]Bourbon, our records section is finally up to date again!
If you haven’t noticed: http://www.sauerworld.org/records/ lists various records of sauer players. We also decided to throw mixes and clanwars into one section, so you still have the chance to claim your record, even in these clanwar less times!
[This is a commentary based purely on the author’s personal opinion.]
We all know Sauerbraten isn’t really dead – after all, there were quite a few participants in last week’s tournament – but the overall downward trend is obvious. Many times I have seen people put forward their ideas as to why our beloved game is in such a sorry state, so I compiled my own list.
People keep asking me for advice on how to get good, and while there is a lot to getting good (and most of it involves practice) I always first ask about gear. Just like you wouldn’t try to paint a portrait with a paint roller, you need a bare minimum of decent gear to get good at an arena FPS. Somehow, no one ever wants to spend any money, because its a ‘hobby,’ and yet everyone wants ‘serious’ advice to get good... But I’ve been there, and I have the answer! With a very small investment you can put together a setup that won’t hold you back.
