5 Reasons Why Sauerbraten Is Dying

[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.


Scrooge McDuck: gaming 101

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.


Editorial – Mix Teams in SSL – by notas

Have you ever wanted to play with a group of friends who just so happen to be in a different clan? Do you not have a clan, but still feel the urge to compete? Well, you can’t, at least not in SSL. Their decision to ban mix teams seems to be a strained attempt to force people into what they imagine is the more elite world of clan competition. It’s an authoritarian policy that is terribly ill-suited to such a small community of players. Allowing mix teams is vital to keeping sauer fun and accessible for everyone.
