Basketball 2on2 Cup: Win for .pt!

Our second bball cup is over. This time’s winners are Portugal .pt. THey didn’t come out of nowhere, they finished 2nd in our first bball cup. THis time they’ve gone that 1 step further and won the tournament. They convincingly beat European Haircut and Sailor 2-0 in the finals, with map scores of 20-14 and 20-6. We would like to congratulate .pt, consisting of Portugal Haunter and  Portugal Coinz, with their win.

Instagib CTF 4on4 Cup: Superior Cows take it home!

The instagib cup is over as well. The finals were played between European Superior Cows and Finland ripulipimpsat. Superior Cows won on the first map, ctf_turbine, and then continued to win  ctf_ig_redshed, earning them the title. They have been dominating the entire cup, only giving away 6 captures in total, of which 4 in the finals. Well done to Superior Cows!

Highlander Cup: Title goes to Jari Litmanen!

Highladner is always a very anticipated gamemode, the matches are fun to watch and full of action. It is also one of the rare opportunities to see the lesser used classes in action. Again, 2 teams had made it to the finals, the Finnish Finland Jari Litmanen and the European European Hey that’s! Both teams had a strong lineup, featuring mostly division 1 or 2 players, so it was indeed very spectacular.  In the end Jari Litmanen won both maps. Congratulations on your win!

50 € Soldier 1on1 Cup & Season 5: Schedule reminder

We would once again like to remind you that we have strict deadlines in place for these two competitions. Every sunday there are several deadlines, be sure you don’t miss them.

Each round of our soldier cup must be played Sunday at the latest, but yet again we have alot of unplayed matches, and it’s Sunday already. Please remember we will award defaults/coin flip decisions when necessary. If we cannot see you putting effort into playing a game, we can’t do anything to help you either.  You only have to play 1 match per week, which shouldn’t take too long.

For season 5 the schedule deadline is every Sunday, week 2’s schedule deadline is today, yet we have around 50 unscheduled matches. We will assign default dates for those matches if no time and date has been entered after today.

All schedule and match dead deadlines can be found at our calendar. [Link]

New bot features

Did you always want to have our IRC bot in your channel,  but were you tired of all the results spam? Then we have a solution for you. Recently, we updated our bot with a few new features.

  • Light mode – When enabled in your channel, the bot will no longer show the results of any matches. It still shows all news headlines and all other commands can be used. This light mode can be toggled by typing !lightbot in your channel.
  • Events – When you type !events in any channel with our bot in it, it will show a list of the 5 first upcoming events. These are usually schedule/match deadlines.

    erm, i just reread them and dont see much wrong besides a typo and me misspelling necessary (as usual). Ofcourse i prolly messed up past tense a couple of times, but that’s really weird to me in comparison to the dutch way of doing it. :)

    You can only blame me for a “simple” writing style this time.

    Anyway i’ve reread it and fixed what i saw, cause i CAN type proper english, i’ll find most of these errors just as fast as you do. I just have to take some time and reread it, which i didn’t this time. (lazy mode)

    It would be nice if you could set the bot to only show, say, div1 and div2 matches.

  13. Swifty: ξ(゜ヮ゜)ξ said:

    Was thinking the same

  14. Silan: (Actual Size) said:

    Or even better, you could choose which division(s) the bot posted results from. So when our clan is in div4a, we could choose only to get results from div4 or div4a (or div4a and div1 – you get the idea).

    Oh and btw, what happened to the ban first announced in the headline? :>

  15. Bjuo said:
