YS Web War 2014 -- HQ vs. YSU

YS Web War 2014
YSFHQ Staff vs. YSUpload Staff



Announcing the 1st Annual YS Web War! February 8, 2014 -- 1700 GMT

Greetings all! I'm here to announce the 1st Annual YS Web War, a combat tournament between the staffs of YSFHQ and YSUpload. We're fighting for bragging rights, but also to just have a fun time on the servers and to bring out some of us who maybe aren't as active as we used to be or would like to be.


[listbox=The Rules]- Each team will consist of at least 3 staff members from the site, plus two other pilots selected from the community. There will also be 1 referee.
- The tournament will be best of 3 rounds, 10 minutes per round, with a 2-minute break between rounds. A round win is based on the total number of kills, minus the number of unintentional crashes.
- Both sides will have to use the same plane, but may repaint as desired. Personally, I think a stock F-16 .dat is fine, but this is negotiable.
- Only 3 pilots from each team are allowed in the air at any given time. Each pilot on the team must participate at least once per round. On-the-fly pilot changes are permitted, but the exiting pilot must land and come to a stop before his/her substitute can take off.
- If there is a tie in any given round, a 3-minute overtime round will be played. The overtime round is the only time that AAM will be disabled.
- The referee, who cannot be a staff member from either site, will have final say in determining what is a valid kill or crash.[/listbox]

Following the event, YSUpload will announce the 2013 Addon of the Year Award Winner!

If you would like to be the referee, or if you're a modder and would like to help us repaint (YSU will totally showcase your other work, big time!), PM me. Otherwise, the teams will reach out to the people they want to join them that day. We're looking forward to a great, fun, quick event!

Uhhh...huh. Despite my extremely limited add-on activity, it would seem that YSUpload requested my services. I am willing to listen to alternate offers.

Just an idea for modding: The unfinished YsUpload F-16 in the YsUpload 'Dump' looks perfect for the event. Would give someone a good little project with a bit of fixing to do.

That would be perfect. I think an update to our latest color scheme might be in order, though.

I need HQ to supply me a list of pilots. Posting here is sufficient.

Let's still try to make this happen today, everyone. It should only take about an hour anyways.

-- Sat Feb 08, 2014 1:39 pm --

THE WAR IS OVER!

Not surprisingly, YSFHQ defeated YSUpload by a round score of 2-1!

The round-by-round breakdown is as follows:

Round 1: 9 Kills HQ v. 6 Kills YSU
Round 2: 29 Kills HQ v. 19 Kills YSU
Round 3: 19 Kills YSU v. 13 Kills HQ (GUN ONLY, played as a bonus round since HQ had already won)


Thanks to the staff and the handful of observers that came out and made this a successful event!
