August season closing
  Posted on Wednesday, September 2, 2020 at 10:01:09 PM | -doNka-
  August was an interesting month - quakecon hype, most scrims since 2004, lots of PUGs and of course large numbers of new players in pubs on Thursdays/Sundays. Some players are taking time off after the QuakeCon burnout, but our numbers of regular players are stronger than ever!

These are the final stats for the season:
Elo curves are coming soon!

Congratulations to the season winners!
1. Murkey
2. Source
3. Parcher

Health check - pay attention to the first week of August!

and panzer/sniper stats

2020 July Season final stats!
  Posted on Friday, July 31, 2020 at 06:55:53 PM | -doNka-
  This season featured more emphasis on KPM (Kills per minute) and less on KDR(ignored).

Congratulation to the winners! Murkey, Source and Bru

This month had seen some higher activity, likely due to QuakeCon announcements that reached some old school players. Welcome!

Raiser retirement #57
  Posted on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at 02:20:45 PM | -doNka-
  Raiser is close to beating Brett Favre with his retirement drama, but this one we are ready to take very seriously:

I just wanted to say guys I have enjoyed playing with everyone it was nice actually coming back and playing RTCW the past four years but after being banned from the NA discord a month ago for a ridiculous reason I thought that would be a long enough punishment in which the admins thought different deciding to double down and keep me and h2o banned. Thank you to the Euro community for welcoming and allowing me to play in the gathers while I didn’t have a job for those two months it was a very stressful time for me back then but being able get away from the real world and play with you guys so competitively it was alot of fun. It’s time for me to uninstall and walk away from this game. I don’t agree with holding these bans from both communities and I can guarantee you I am not the only one who’s thinking it. I had a couple of guys message me asking to join their team for qcon too but it looks like that’s not gonna be able to happen. Good luck to everyone I’ll miss both the NA and the Euro commmuity except for Caff, Nigel and Miles.

Shoutout to the NA original admin crew Virus, Gut, Cypher for organizing all the tournaments the last four years. Eternal - Hanging in there with everything that happened in the NA community always having my back trying to keep me in the community. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to control how I acted in these discord channels it’s a lot harder for me than you think.
Last but not least the Euro admins for everything they did to try and organize with the NA admins to make this qcon event happen it breaks my heart I will not be able to participate and this is why I need to move on.

Take care everyone.

Fr4gster, Sneaky, Raiser 2002-2006 - Raiser 2016-2020

New 2020 July Season - killing time!
  Posted on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 at 10:20:51 PM | -doNka-
  This season will eliminate KDR and Tapout points. KPM is ranked the same but without KDR it is the only granular kill performance metric. Suicides do nothing. Just get in the game and fight hard, don't worry about dying , worry about winning, getting in fights and big killstreaks.

Updated versions of Cipher and Nordic are now available!
  Posted on Thursday, June 25, 2020 at 04:01:02 PM | -doNka-
  (from source)

Here are some of the major changes:

Cipher (B2)
- added ladder clip to the sides of the river (and raised the water level) so people can get out easier
- resized and restructured the lower complex to make it more straight forward and scalable for 3v3
- removed explodable barrels for stability
- various textural and staging upgrades to improve visual clarity

Nordic (B2)
- fixed bug that made it possible to hear sounds from distant areas
- fixed bug where destroyable grates remained after being broken with non-explosive weapons
- fixed bug that made fences solid/bulletproof
- added drop-down from lower axis spawn to emergency access tunnel / planning room
- added more initial spawn points at the north turret
- added outside entrance to office balcony ladder
- removed explodable barrels for stability
- restructured the office/warehouse area to make it more straight-forward

For both maps, I also standardized the objective flags so that the primary objective (documents) is the at the top, and the forward spawn flag is the bottom. Sometimes the announcement that the objective taken doesn't get heard, and in that case this should make it easier for people to determine if the primary objective is in play.

Thanks to all those who provided useful feedback. Please download these maps before you join the pug as we will be playing them starting 6/25/2020

Season 4 Spicy Adjustments
  Posted on Friday, June 5, 2020 at 08:59:36 PM | -doNka-
  Now that we had 3 regular seasons, it's time to spice things up a bit. You will see two things:

1. Kills per minute(KPM) and Kill/Death Ratio (KDR) are being weakened to 50%
2. Season stats will be posted thru the month to let players see their progress

To level set the field, what this means:
1. Other awards will be more useful to determine final ranks - FirstInDoor, Points, Wins, MegaKills, and KillStreaks.
2. Players can set targets for the awards they want to lean on

Season progresses (updated):

RTCW NA Stats Corona 3 Extra
  Posted on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 at 03:56:37 PM | -doNka-
  Just a few more fun stats for the season 3.

First of all, overall health of the community to date. The lock-down and the Draft tournament brought incredible numbers before we head into the drought of summer. Hopefully, we have replenished our core numbers to keep the good games sustained through the vacation/outdoor season.

Here are the 2020 May deadliest snipers and panzers!

Corona Season 3 Results!!
  Posted on Monday, June 1, 2020 at 03:51:13 AM | -doNka-
  Corona season 3 is over!
We had another great month with 53 unique players and 30K pug kills. This month had seen increasing amount of smaller, more constant pickup games 3v3, 4v4 mid-week games that we agreed not to include in general PUG season.

Some improvements to stats:
-Best friends stats - see pairs of players that win together the most
-Weapon signatures - changed weapon kills to weapon percentages. Kills are pretty meaningless with people playing various amounts of time. Percentages, on the other side, can help you benchmark player styles against each other
-Other percentage base fields have better sorting.

Move onto the results:

Thanks for all participants, active and casual, and congratulations to the winners!!!

Decka Remorial
  Posted on Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 03:32:47 AM | -doNka-
  eternal 05/11/2020

@everyone Decka passed away on Saturday evening. All the details are not yet known, but he was recently released from the hospital following surgery. While he hadn't participated in this community recently, Decka has been a regular character in these parts for the past two decades. He was a champion, and a great person behind his sometimes prickly exterior. I am at a loss for what to say, but he will be missed.

Our next pug night is Thursday 5/14/2020. Let's get some games going to remember a good player and a teammate.
Get on discord
Get on RTCW/OSP:

If you need to install RTCW, look for fully packed installation in the #reinstallation-and-files discord channel
Run wolf as admin, generate and change new CD key (otherwise you will collide with others)
Join the server for a few minutes ahead of time to make sure your config and punkbuster work.

..we start around 9PM EST

Corona Season 2 Results!!
  Posted on Friday, May 1, 2020 at 05:45:00 AM | -doNka-
  April brought even bigger numbers, more games, and new names than the previous record reason. We are dealing with splitting teams into 4 teams into different servers!

This month I enabled web upload for rtcwconsole.log files straight from the users and it’s been getting a lot of traction in the NA community as well as the EU. Please check out the “upload stats” link on the left navigation bar.

I have also coded a major overhaul to some metrics:
-New Tapout penalty for suiciding too much. It offsets high KDR for the panzers that vape a lot and /kill to boost KDR. It’s far from all malicious, but it’s a justified penalty to offset KDR.
-Megakills, Killstreaks, and Win% are awarded in ranges, instead of rankings. For example, anyone over 20 Killstreak gets the best rank, over 15 - second, etc.
-Panz penalty was reduced to 3 because Tapout is doing a good job to penalize all the vapes.
-Smoke kills penalty is 0-2 (one less).
-New ELO calculation that takes into account all players' games since January 1. It ranks by Kill performance less/more points for wins. Special weapons kills worth 50%.
-Add many countless bugs, styles, and time improvements!

Congratulations to season winners!!!
Anyone who plays on open nights and plays over 40 games is ranked.

Now head to the stats to see FINAL RESULTS

RTCW NA - 2020 March (Corona Season 1) results are in!!!
  Posted on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 at 04:00:18 AM | -doNka-
  As unfortunate as it is, global quarantine brought us the most activity RTCW had seen probably since the end of 2000s. During this time we had 49 people from North America and Europe join us in North American RTCW open PUG nights and sealed the season with impressive 17k kills.

Thanks to all players saving stats for me of what i wasn't able to record. This month, weather permitting, I will have web upload and immediate processing enabled.

Head to the link to see the final results. Just remember you had to book 20% of the matches or 40 rounds minimum to be ranked.

Congratulations to season winners and Corona Season 2 starts today!
