newspaper KNOCKOUT is back - First 2016 edition !

bullet_none in Misc - posted 1 month ago by FrozenSand

Sunday the 27th of March at 15:00 CET, Urban Zone will be hosting a KNOCKOUT tournament. The event will be streamed on twitch.tv/urbanzone and the reigning Crimzon will be defending his belt.

It's been over a year now since the last edition, and as France just won NationsCup XIX with flying colours, Urban Terror's eSport scene needs some more challenges in the go!

Competition wise as an event KnockOut is two hours of non-stop action where rules of fair play become a suggestion and where rules are broken by but not limited to shoutcasters narcing out campers as well as players not able to handle the pressure and intentionally lemming off of tall buildings if just for the shear entertainment value. Nothing better than participating or watching the broadcast to get a good picture. :)

How can you sign up?

Signups will be done through the Urban Zone website, this news post has all the details. The first 15 to reply to this news post get a spot. If you aren’t one of the lucky fifteen, don't get discouraged and sign up anyway – some people always drop out and you can take up their place.

Please find more information on Urban Zone KNOCKOUT tournaments here.

newspaper Urban Terror 4.3 - Mapping it out !

bullet_none in Urban Terror - posted 2 months ago by FrozenSand
In anticipation of the upcoming release of Urban Terror 4.3, we would like to offer a short overview of what the community should expect from it. Firstly, however, we would like to add, in a bit of a gloomy state of mind, that with the release to come we will bade farewell to Urban Terror 4.x and ioQuake! Since the future releases will be developed using the new Unreal Engine 4 and will bear a new name, we expect 4.3 to represent the final Urban Terror 4.x release, as well as the final one using the venerable ioQuake engine.

The Urban Terror 4.3 release will be focusing on introducing a new game mode, a bunch of new weapons, along with various other additions and improvements.

What's happening to the maps ?

The default map list was pruned for this 4.3 Urban Terror release. More specifically, the test maps, the third-party maps, as well as those maps which proved to be seldom played within the community were removed from the default installation package. Of course, they can always be downloaded separately by those who grew to appreciate or perform well when playing them.

AbbeyCTF, Ambush, Commune, Company, Crossing, Harbortown, Horror, Maya, Prague_v2, Snoppis, Toxic, Tunis

As with every aspect of Urban Terror, we expect each of the listed maps to have nostalgic supporters. We apologize to those who could be disappointed and kindly ask them to download them separately from map repos now.

In order to avoid downloading an unnecessary custom map to play Kingdom in TS mode, the official version of the map has been updated with the RC6 layout in the said gametype. The new level benefits from the latest graphic improvements realised along with new music added in the tavern area.
You can enjoy a quick preview of the update throughout this short clip:



More to come regarding the new game mode and other improvements in 4.3. Stay tuned!

newspaper Nations Cup XIX announcement

bullet_none in Leagues - posted Wednesday, 16 December 2015 by FrozenSand

Ladies and gentlemen,

It’s been a rocket launch of a ride thus far this year and it seems that even more things are en route for us soon. Urban Terror 4.3 is imminent while its last screws are getting tightened; we've seen a hell of a progress on HD with the new Dev Blogs; two new coders have joined the team: Zenity and Gost0r to help with porting Urban Terror onto the Unreal Engine 4; and finally Vladocs who will be crafting us appealing weapon models, is in the loop of joining the dev team also.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been one year already since the last Nations Cup took place. It seems as though it was just yesterday that frFrance managed to defeat ptPortugal on Orbital with a lead of five little rounds.

frFrance has now scored its hattrick and we are all awaiting to see if they will manage to beat the nlNetherlands' record this year and win four Nations Cups in a row.

We will be going through the captain designation process in the UZ forums in a few days. Note that players are still in time and free to apply to become the captain of their country, but competition experience is, of course, expected (find more info on the UZ). The NC staff is also looking for people ready to help them in the organization (GTV cameraman, newswriter, etc). So please step up if you want to help!

Urban Terror's most awaited competition will be running after the following schedule:

December 07 - Captain applications launched
December 20 - End of Captain applications / Start of the captain's vote stage
January 01 - End of Voting stage, Captains announcement
January 03 - Groups published
January 10 - Start of the first match week

Stay tuned for streams from our own SevenofNine!
