Blue_BigSmile Build and Shoot Expanding Our Horizons Green_BigSmile


We have been expanding our horizons, more specifically, our social media horizons. Check our community tab in the menu in the header.

Image

If you haven't noticed already, we have now listed our Build and Shoot Facebook page under the community tab. It is a great place for propaganda images and videos to like and share.

Image

You might be wondering why we have a subreddit when we also have a forum. Well, first of all, Reddit is a very popular site and many people has accounts there. It's much easier for new players to get in there, have a look, ask questions etc.. As they don't need to register a new account like they would need on the forums here.

Another reason is that the infra-structure is different on Reddit, which leads to different types of posts. The posts you make are more relevant the more the other users likes it. Meaning that you don't need to worry about something being "topic-worthy" as the other users will decide that themselves via the downvote/upvote button.

Image

We didn't forget about you Twitter, the league updates for match scores and more will be tweeted. To help the people who are out and about.

Blue_Spade Maps Green_Spade


Alexandria
by: Lostmotel

Alexandria is a fairly large island based map that is named off the city Alexandria in Egypt, the city is the second biggest in Egypt! The map itself resembles isle of war but with a lot more features and terrain to play on. In the center of the map is a small pyramid with an underground tomb. On the sides of the map there are boats and small buildings to enter and hide in. Behind both spawns points and Sphinx. It is clear the Lostmotel put a lot of work into the models used, wouldn't be surprised if this map made it to next season's league. *click here to view topic*

Pripyat
By: SIMOX & STRIKE

Pripyat is a map featuring a big abandoned town, a Ferris wheel, and a variety of old military equipment no long being used. The map is also based off of the city called "pripyat" that was abandoned in 1986 because the Chernobyl disaster. A lot of the buildings are huge and would fit great on any public server but seems too big for a small clan match. All of the models are at their full potential though and would look great in action. This map is really an improvement from some of strikes early maps. * click here to view topic *

First Half of the Season Breakdown

stats

Wow, we had a lot of games during the first half of the season, 37 to be exact(26 wins and 11 ties). Death Inc., a relatively unknown clan proved that they are a force to reckoned with. Komrades qualified in one day to move on to the championships. SturmStaffel finished first in the regular season. Who do you think will have what it takes to win the championship? Blue_Rifle

The finals will be a one game elimination, this means if your team wins they move forward in the brackets. There will be more maps added to the rotation so this is your time to suggest some maps. Good luck to everyone participating! May the best group of deuces survive.

An alternative method of reviving has been brought to our attention and could possibly be added to the mix in a future season, this reviving script is by CowNorris(Cowie). How it works is simple, when a player dies their dead corps lays on the ground, if a teammate can get to the dead man before he respawns and provide cpr via crouch spamming he will be revived. This would reward teamwork.

Alexandria looks really good, and so does Pripyat. I'd really like to on one of those maps some time. And Powerthirst sounds awesome! I'd love to have a huge 32vs.32 battle on a big map. Epic!

I love you people. Great stuff as always :)

Id like to leave a quote that expresses the elegance of this game, and your elegance for elaborating its content...

"Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty — a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show. The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, the sense of being more than Man, which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, is to be found in mathematics as surely as poetry."
[Bertrand Russell]
