An Interesting ET Development
  Posted on Monday, April 25, 2005 at 07:17:20 PM | c[_]`Wippuh
  It could be time for all us to turn a minute of our day to watching ET. If you don't follow ET at all, ETPro is the OSP of ET developed by the one and only Bani. A recent patch was released by Splooge Damage that was incompatible with ETPro. Bani has quickly updated ETPro to adapt to the new patch.

5's vs 6's
  Posted on Monday, April 25, 2005 at 02:00:17 AM | CAL-rtcw|Pattison
  Well last weeks preseason was played as 5 v 5 and I was wondering how it went. I'm basically looking for peoples thoughts on if it should stay this way, put it back to 6's, or maybe increase panzer charge time, or even get rid of panzers entirely? Any ideas you would like to throw out I'm willing to listen to.

STA-RTCW Season #8
  Posted on Friday, April 15, 2005 at 06:16:46 PM | :)Trinners
  STA is introducing a few changes to reflect changes to the community. Starting in Season #8, which will begin on Monday, May 2nd, STA will feature the OSP mod in a 5v5 format. We are currently debating whether or not to allow 1 panzer in this configuration so please share your thoughts on the forums.

In addition, STA is going to go with an all custom map season. If there is a custom map you've been dying to play in competition, again please share your thoughts in the forums. Please keep in mind that all custom maps need to be reviewed for bugs first.

We are currently accepting applications for the upcoming season so spread the word with your fellow clans. One final note, Season #8 will feature no preseason. There will, however, be: an 8-week regular season, playoffs, and a probowl.

Syndicate Soldiers, STA-RTCW Shrub Season #1 crown
  Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2005 at 07:05:45 PM | :)Trinners
  -|SS|- and -nJ- proved to be formidable opponents as the two faced off on Base in the STA-RTCW Shrub finals match. Once again, congratulations are in order for both teams for making it into the finals. -nJ- fought valiantly and gave -|SS|- a run for their money, despite having to play down a man, but came up short. -|SS|-'s 3-0 victory topped off a perfect season--an amazing achievement--to be crowned STA-RTCW Shrub Season #1 champs!

  I'm sure most of you know now that I'm a new CAL rtcw admin. I just want to let everyone know that I'll do the best of my abilities to help out the community in any way possible. A few things I have thought of so far are.

-I will be present in a server for a match that I will choose for whatever reason (rumors of hacking, etc etc) or a high profile match that I think I should be there for. I will also be idling in irc so if there is any need for me to hop onto another server to settle a dispute I can be there.

-I have turned my auto accept in irc on. This is so I can leave my irc on all the time so people can send me demos, screenshots or whatever to me. Please have all these files made into a zip or rar file.

-Trying to implement new CAL rules, but first I have to go over these with my CAL coleagues. A few things are 1. A GUID that must be atleast 2-3 months old on the database 2. Changes in the cvar settings 3. Custom maps
Pretty much everything that was discussed at the CAL Careface meeting.

-I tend to pub a lot. So I assume I will be given ref passwords on the speakeasys. If I see anyone playing out of place or causing trouble they will get a warning then the boot. I could also be on irc and someone could come message me if trouble arises.

Anyhoo these are just a few of my thoughts of what I could do to make this community better. Any feedback would be great. :) JAVOHL!

5 vs 5 League Play? What Are Your Thoughts...
  Posted on Sunday, April 10, 2005 at 02:12:37 AM | pissclams
  During the CAL League meeting I suggested the league consider going to 5's. It's harder and harder to find 6 guys to scrim/match/etc and I just think it's time. The game can support 5's pretty well as the success of the TWL 5 vs 5 ladder would testify to, I put up a new poll here at the site and want to know what you guys think.

What are your comments-

Comcast Hacked
  Posted on Friday, April 8, 2005 at 03:55:06 AM | Thorian
  Evidently Comcast was hacked today, and it pretty much killed the ability for a lot of customers to surf the Internet and use various online services. The component that is causing the failure are the Comcast DNS servers. These servers are responsible for converting domain names (like into IP addresses ( Obviously if you had to surf to every website by its IP address there would be no way to remember them all, hence the use of domain names.

While we wait for Comcast to resolve the issue with their DNS servers, there is a way to manually switch to using another third-party set of DNS servers (such as Verizon's). Here is how to do so:

1. Find "My Network Places" and right click - select "properties."
2. Right click on "Local Area Connection" - select properties again.
3. Double-click TCP/IP Internet Protocol.
4. At the bottom of the form, select "use the following" under the DNS area.
5. Enter and as the two ip addresses to use.
6. Hit OK until you have cleared all windows.

This will start using the Verizon DNS servers (thanks to Imposter for providing the IPs and instructions), and allow you to surf the web again.

An Interesting Proposal. 50 to 35?
  Posted on Wednesday, April 6, 2005 at 04:50:35 PM | c[_]`Wippuh
  Over at the TWL forums there's a locked thread that brings up an interesting proposal that I'm sure many of you have thought about too. As you all know the standard ping differential across both TWL and CAL is 50. That's a massive differential and there's no doubt that a team having an average ping of 51 has a signifigant advantage over a team with an average ping of 100.

  Looks like there won't be an initial drop out by TWL for this season. From Vixen on the TWL forums...

"The league is ready for signups. At this point, we haven't selected a preseason map yet, but we're looking at several. This promises to be a fun season with some custom maps thrown in for grins. We're looking at 10 weeks of regular season.

  Due to CAL's recent action to remove Wippuh (CAL|Bob) as CAL admin, I have created a petition for those interested to sign. It's basically a petition to get Wippuh back in CAL, as he is our last hope. This isn't a free bash Wippuh or CAL session either, so please refrain from such comments.

If you feel that Wippuh should be reinstated as CAL admin, I am asking that you please sign this petition.

It has been an incredible 6 seasons of fun, fragging, laughs and emo! The Online Stomping Grounds contract has expired and I have decided to not renew as I am more or less reducing my RtCW time now as rl issues are pressing. Here are some historical things regarding the server.

Season 5 or so, the Cov0ps server is introduced hosting RtCW on OSG linux dedicated server.
