OSP Release is a Possibility!
  Posted on Monday, August 28, 2006 at 06:16:20 AM | -doNka-
  This is true. GGL-Donking spoke with Rhea, lead programmer of OSP, and Rhea said that if he gets a list of bugs/issues he is willing to check them out. The last version (OSP .9) came out years ago and has been stable enough to last quite a long time.

  Lots of exciting things happening amongst our community, friends! Aside from many upcoming events that will definitely benefit this game and community are some CLASSIC demos that were unreleased until now!

GGL-DonKing has been gracious enough to release some cool demos that he has had since 2002. Ever wondered how q3 allstar CZM did in RTCW?! Here's your chance to view them and see for yourself!

Admins Needed For Minicomp/Potential GGL RTCW Ladder
  Posted on Sunday, August 27, 2006 at 06:00:58 AM | gisele
  If you want to make this community more competitive and have more leagues, ladders and things of that nature, then you're going to need to step up!

The minicomp needs someone to run it, the only requirement is that you are familiar with the game and it's competitive nature.

Alias Says: 3 Days GG!
  Posted on Friday, August 25, 2006 at 03:53:00 AM | -doNka-

Some of you might have seen Al!@s(dR, TV) playing on pubs with some strange looking names such as "10 days GG!". The meaning behind it is that Alias is going away to join the army in a couple of days. He's being sent to a boot camp first in South Carolina, and then.. well, who knows. Let's hope for the best. It seems for now that it's going to be a 4 year commitment with the United States Marines. Give a guy a round of applause as he leaves RTCW pubs to fight for the freedom in RL and wish him the best of luck in his endeavors.

(roger|dNk) if you gonna make a will, put one of the bulletings that your wolfenstein clan gets notified via irc

TeamWarfare OSP Week 8 Schedule Announced!
  Posted on Thursday, August 24, 2006 at 09:10:07 PM | SyndicateGromit|TWL
  The schedule for Week 8 has been posted:

- Map: Tundra Rush
- Default Date and Time: August 30, 10:00est

As you can see, the matchups are interdivisional. The main reason is that with the dropouts, the Allied Division is impossible to schedule this week.

What I've done is matchup the middle cluster of teams: Allied Teams #3-8 and Axis Teams #4-7. The teams at the top and bottom of the playoff seedings are firmly entrenched. For playoff purposes, the middle teams have the most to gain this week and, since they've played each other within their divisions, let's see how they perform against similarly positioned teams in the other division.

The Swat Guys no-showed last week and are not in position to gain access to the playoffs. They have received a Bye.

A post on the OSP Playoffs is up at TWL as well:

TeamWarfare OSP Week 7 Schedule Announced!
  Posted on Thursday, August 17, 2006 at 07:00:09 PM | SyndicateGromit|TWL
  The schedule for Week 7 has been posted:

- Map: mp_assault
- Default Date and Time: August 23, 10:00est

We've lost Morbid X, but the remaining 19 teams look prepared for the playoff push. We saw Rabia and ICF forfeit this week, but I've received assurances that these teams will be ready next week.

I have held-off on announcing the playoff format simply b/c I wanted to see how many teams were playing strongly at the end of the season. There is a playoff recommendation thread in the forums for comments and suggestions.

  I don't believe too many people around here are aware of the international RTCW scene. seems to be very much alive. What's interesting though, they seem to have same exact problems like we do around here: hackers getting busted every other week, rule changes, and major flaming. If 250 comments posts on planet-rtcw is not enough drama for you, go and check out euro RTCW competition website.

TWL Shrub Season 6 now open for sign ups
  Posted on Thursday, August 17, 2006 at 05:38:53 AM | [a]streetz-work
  Twl has announced the sign ups for shrub season 6.

They want to encourage as many teams as possible to join. Now I know many of you hate shrub... But please put into consideration that a lot of us shrubbers have come over to play osp. So please consider making teams and competing. This would give you ospers some off season practice and keep you all active. Once a team joins, every founder can send their 3 choices of maps to be played for this season and the most popular ones will be selected. Once again please consider joining/supporting the shrub league.

For anymore information about shrub season, see the forums or contact niteswine

Frag Highlights from matches played by Angel and Yulaw in their current and
previous clans, synchronised to music.

Pretty descent RTCW movie from euro community. Value of frags goes from half descent to actually pretty good with some big multi kills at the end. Somewhat weird gfx and techno happy music.

The remainder of our RTCW community.
  Posted on Monday, August 14, 2006 at 11:23:25 PM | [a]streetz-work
  In recent events that have occured, TWL Admin Vixen has resigned. As you can see here Niteswine and staff is not happy about this and neither are the "Big Guys" over at TWL. Pretty much to make a long story short, they are thinking about shutting down our RTCW community. This pretty much means CUT THE SHIT EVERYONE!! We can't let stupid things get to us and let it upset people and make this small community look bad. Right now the only thing we can do is prove to the big guys over at TWL why rtcw should remain an active game at TWL. This means e-mail TWL, and the number 1 thing we should be doing now is involving everyone, the bani players, shrub players and osp players need to come together and post at TWL and show them the interest we still have for this game. Tell them why they should keep this game going and why this game is great. This event should encourage the whole RTCW community to come together more and participate in more leagues together.

Also, because of the departure of Vixen, we may not have enough servers next season if TWL doesn't shut us down that is. So lets see what we can do to get people to either donate torwards getting some servers or see if someone can donate them to us.

  Google's service "personalized page" gained users approval due to an ability to use RSS feeds. Not many(1 or 2) people know that Planet-RTCW always had its own RSS. I've done some modifications to old Rss and it seems very much usable.

There are various means of reading RSS feeds, but one of the most convenient today is probably Google.

  It truly is a sad day in RTCW history when Teh Wippuh quits the only NA RTCW news site. Despite all the played out "Wippuh killed RTCW" jokes, he is the only reason we are all still here using this site. All those times you laughed at things said on this site since the depature of Pravda and Animeman, you owe to Wippuh.

  It has been a fun 3+ years but I believe it's now a good time to step down from adminning the site. Donka has whined his way into full rights on the site and it is something I disagree with heavily. If there was ever a player who I would not trust with the ips and other info found with full rights, it would be Donka.

Enjoy Donka in charge!

3 TV - 2 Birds

From Caff:

"last round 2-2 birds hold 4:04 or 4:14 on sub. birds on offense w/ 50 seconds left in the match, 3 birds mysteriously "crash" (like, the big freeze, can't bring down console or alt+enter or end program, crash). so grom decides, on his own, that it didn't warrant a round reset. 3 birds (who were all alive and pushed into the sub) crashed. so those 3 players had to /kill w/ 9 seconds left on spawn, leaving a 3 on 6 until 41 seconds left on the clock. good admins."

Qcon Return to Castle Wolfenstein Banners!!
  Posted on Monday, July 31, 2006 at 11:05:41 PM | KeP
  Alright, so I didn't get any REAL submissions of ideas for the banners, so they will be pretty generic. Here is the image I used, it's the image from the front of the RtCW box.

There will be two of them printed out and pasted onto a foamboard backing. (Vinyl banners would have been about $200, kinkos wanted $160. So instead we have some easy prints on a foam backing)

They will be propped up on the table. Each is 32" x 42" so they should be fairly large and visible. In order to fit all the rtcw players onto a single table or several tables in an area, the area will be setup in a back corner. This will be a lower traffic area which leaves more space open for our fellow wolf players. The BYOC opens at 8am Thursday. Depending on when I get in, they will be setup that morning - sometime before noon. So if you are a wolf player setting up in the BYOC, keep an eye out for the 3 foot by 4 foot signs propped up on the table!!

Hope to see you all there! And I hope you can see the signs!
