NationsCup 2014 Captain Application

in Leagues - posted Monday, 30 December 2013 by FrozenSand
The NationsCup has always been the high point of competitive Urban Terror but it was uncertain whether or not it would be held this year due to the problems at ClanBase. Unfortunately they could not be resolved in time. Urban Zone has stepped in and offered to host it. Sotone, the CB game supervisor, has joined Urban Zone to make sure the NC will run smoothly.

Normally the run up to the NationsCup starts in December with the captain applications however due to the issues there is now a time constraint. In order to catch up the application period is shortened to January 5th, 2014. You can find more information on how to apply as captain of your nation on the Urban Zone website.

UTSC Open 2 vs 2 Cup

in Leagues - posted Wednesday, 18 December 2013 by FrozenSand

UTSC are organizing their first Open 2v2 Cup.
Teams may play as few or as many matches as they like. This cup uses an ELO rating system (the same system used in the XLRstats skill component), so teams cannot spam wins against lesser teams to ensure high placing. Playing more often won't necessarily mean a higher rank, so only the most truly dynamic duo will emerge victorious.

There won't be any restrictions on map choices, however, the game type will be limited to Team Survivor for now. Teams can have as few as 2 players or as many as they choose. This is an open cup, so all are welcome and there is no limit to the number of teams participating. The only restriction is that players may not represent more than one team.

Sign ups will remain open until New Year's Eve, and the cup will be held for the first 2 months of 2014.
Visit http://utschamps.org for more details and to enroll your team.

End of the 4.1 era

in Masters & Auth - posted Monday, 16 December 2013 by FrozenSand
KABOOM! - That is the sound our self destruct mechanism will make on the 1st of January 2014 at 00:00 CET. It has been activated for our 4.1 Master Servers and the count down has begun!

In just over two weeks time we will finally shut down the 4.1 master servers for good. So, if there are any server admins or players that have not yet upgraded to the latest Urban Terror 4.2 release, now is the opportunity to upgrade to version 4.2 and test the latest additions and changes!

CMM Map design competition

in Maps & mapping - posted Saturday, 23 November 2013 by FrozenSand

You — yes, you — may have wanted to build your very own map for years but lack the skills, persistence, or simply time. Now you can: CMM is holding a map design competition open for anyone.

Groups of any kind (clans, communities, just a couple of friends) are eligible. There’s no limit to the number of designs a person or a group can post as long as they conform to the minimal requirements.

To enter, you have to post a layout sketch and as complete description of the theme as you deem necessary — at minimum, a couple of words about what the map would depict plus some photos. Paintings/drawings or screenshots would also do; however, you’re not supposed to ask for a remake of an existing map from another game, this is all about your awesome idea.

The winning entry will be built by CMM members. You will be able to work together with the mappers and make the decisions that will affect the final result, should you choose so. The full credit and rights to the map will belong to you or your group.

To take part in the competition: Click Here
