    Talking Finally.... the 2nd FF Tournament is here

    For those of you who have been waiting SO LONG for this, we figured it's time that we put you out of your misery....... We're changing lots of things for the tournament this time around. Game, game type, prizes.... yes, you heard me.... prizes (correction: no prizes )

    This time around the game is America's Army: Operations. For those of you how have been living under a rock for the last 6 months, this is a game designed by the American Army as a recruiting tool and is available as a FREE download, so there are absolutely ZERO excuses for not getting involved. I can also send a CD to you if necessary, or you can get the CD for free from your local recruiting office.

    For those of you who don't yet have the game, check out the entry in the Game FAQs for downloads and other interesting stuff Check out the official manual from americasarmy.com so you can get some idea of what the game is all about.

    As before, those who want to get involved will be organised into teams. Each team will play the other teams in a league and the top two teams will play each other in a final.

    In case you didn't know, all missions in AA are objective based. Each match will require both teams to act in both attacking and defending roles and the overall result will be based on the number of map wins. In the event of a draw, the teams will go into a training map (Fort Makenna MOUT) and the winner of that map will take the match. The full map list to be used is listed below.

    The teams will be selected on the basis of the decisions of the organisers, using our knowledge of your game playing abilities together with the results of your basic training. Please make a note of your final score in the marksman training and the time left on the clock at the end of the obstacle course. Also, ensure that you complete both basic training and the airborne training since we expect at least some maps to be taken from the Airborne and Ranger tours of duty.

    So, all those who want in..... tell us in here

    We'll be drawing the teams in the last week of May. Then there'll be 2 weeks for teams to practice and discuss tactics before we start playing

    • Swamp_Raid OUT Similar to HQ_Raid.

    Sounds fun. I hate that I missed the UT2k3 tournament due to my lack of not owning the game, but this my opportunity to redeem myself!

    But, alas, I still have 12 pages of notes to type. I'm glad my finals are over tomorrow.

    Yeah, that's part of the reason why we figured we'd go with AA this time around... no excuses for not being there.

    Just an FYI, the tournament will be starting in a couple of weeks, so unless you're a really slow writer, you should be good for the tourney

    That's part of the beauty of this tourney. Very few Frogs play AA, so we're all going to be learning

    Incidentally, I'm going to start putting a list of signees in the first post to help keep track of who's in.

    Don't worry, it'll definitely by after May 15. That's only 10 days away. We'll probably be starting after Memorial Day to give everyone a chance to download / install / tweak and play a bit.

    Glad to see you joining us James. And don't worry about the training, it really only takes about 1 hour, and just think of it as being the same as the training missions you get on most FPSs.

    sounds like a plan!

    I think the reason I didn't like it was that I could never get to be a sniper... Cause I'd always miss one target or whatever with the silly m4 or m16...
