    TimeWarp Fortress
    Timewarp Host: Hanz
    Timewarper: Okrag


    We play TF2 at non-standard speeds via host_timescale. Generally around 160-180% with occasional slow-mo periods.
    This time we will be doing it on the EU server, as the first 2 events were US server. :)

    TF2Maps.net Official EU Server: 85.234.148.93:29015

    Password: timewarp

    Central European Summer Time: 8:30 PM
    UK (British Summer Time): 7:30 PM (GMT+1)
    Eastern Daylight Time: 2:30 PM
    Central Daylight Time: 1:30 PM (GMT-5)
    Mountain Daylight Time: 12:30 PM
    Pacific Daylight Time: 11:30 AM

    As the timescale increases so does the amount data being thrown around. This can and will effect ping times, scaling in relation to your normal ping. US players be advised.

    Maps played will be determined as we play.
    If you have any suggestions ahead of time for maps you think would work better than others at high speed feel free to drop them here.

    No stats/achievements will be counted during this event due to cheats being enabled.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 3

    What are the rules about me nocliping, budhaing, and hairballing (really the best command EVER) the hell out of it?

    We have a password to keep these kind of silly people away.

    So don't do it. :)

    Timewarp should be focused on slo-mo. Being unable to play the game because It's going too fast isn't fun for me :C

    If we would only do slo-mo the event would take hours and we would have played one map because it goes so slow. :p
    So we will be doing both. :)

    I'm incredibly skeptical to sv_cheats, and no, password is not going to help one bit (seriously).
    Noclip is about the BEST you can wish to happen in this environment, since there's plenty of commands to completely shutdown the server or fuck it up royally.

    You need something like

    Keep in mind I dont know anything about the above plugin, I just found it through a quick google search.


    edit: I'm not trying to shit on the event, I think it's a good idea to run it again.
    But there needs to be more planning and research than just "hay let's do it"

    Ravidge, that is exactly what I used when I did it.

    Also, I don't really understand what Hanz is going to do as this supposed host. The guy who has his fingers on the warp button is the one that deems what happens and when and is really the host.

    Hanz is going to select all the maps, probably change all the maps and whatnot. I just increase or decrease the speed.

    So you got the plugin installed? Bummer. I was hoping for a complete fail just so I could say "I told you so." But it's all thanks to Ravidge.

    So good job, Ravidge.
