FYC is forming a Fortress Forever Intra-Guild League. This league: {FYC}^IGL will be an 5v5 CTF style league with friendly competition between balanced teams of {FYC} members. Teams will operate with players of mixed skill level containing up to but not exceeding three UGC clan member Ė or equivalent skill level players. The remainder of the team must be filled out with players of somewhat lower skill level, but who have the desire to improve and the willingness to follow orders in a league setting.

Once a team is approved by the {FYC}^gods, each team will chose itís own name and have a section on the forums for its own private use. From there on, that team may schedule practices, scrims or any other event as it chooses.

If you are interested in joining the {FYC}^IGL, Please follow the directions below. If you are of UGC clan level skill, and wish to form a team, Please contact the forum webmaster(Little Dragon) with your team name and proposed roster. Remember: teams must contain no more than three (3) individuals of UGC clan level skill to maintain team balance.

If you have any questions, feel free to post your questions on the forum, or contact .50bmg directly via steam or at bullfrog2003@yahoo.com

Instructions for joining the {FYC}^IGL

Step 1: Become an {FYC} member: Request an invitation to {FYC} Ė any member can invite others, and league participation requires {FYC} membership.

Step 2: Register at the {FYC} Forum http://z4.invisionfree.com/FYC

Step 3: Find and read the rules of the league: This will ensure you know what is expected of you as well as make your future team captainís job easier.

Step 4: If you have not already been drafted into an {FYC}^IGL team, then Please post your intentions in the {FYC}^IGL recruitment thread Ė All skill levels are Welcome, but Please join with the intention of working hard to improve yourself.

Step 5: While waiting for recruitment, read and post on the forums Ė league membership requires active forum participation as most league information including match dates and rules will be posted there.

Step 6: Team membership! Once on a team, pay attention to your captains. They hold the secrets to playing this game at a high level, and can teach you far more than you could ever learn on your own. Donít be afraid to ask questions, and have fun!

How is calling yourself "gods" not elitist? ^IGL or ^stooges might be more appropriate. IGL is already a league btw... might have picked a diff acronym.

If me and Gator were on a team with 3 noobs would that be "even"? We are interested in training new people to the game.

You should set your forum template to fixed width btw. It looks disgusting on widescreen.

Jesus :o!

You did mention a max of three UGC players. So here's my ideal roster:

Gator [UGC] + Hoop [UGC] + Cynical [UGC] + Achillies [currently training him] + darkstar [currently training him]

Sure thing.

The point of the league is to get those who aren't as good better, not by playing against better people but by playing with better people.

You don't learn much or get better when somebody is capping on you every 4 seconds or when you get constantly airshot and you have no idea what you are doing wrong.

I'm missing the point of Credge's haircut.

And all the girls say he's pretty fly for a white guy.

Thanks, you made my point!

Me and gator are wanting to join and train 2 or 3 non league players to get better. We ourselves are good, yes, but we will be playing for the purpose of training new players.

We would split up me on O and gator on D for instance, and the trainees would be trying to stick to the defensive plan with guidance.

I would think me and Gator would be much more suited to training newbs than the majority of UGC players, most of which can't even bhop.

Am I missing something?

Very, actually.

Ask Austin and Achillies :)

Credge
06-30-2008, 04:54 AM
No offense, but both of those players don't need to be trained :|. Not at all.

Even my clan ran out out patience with Austin

Neither of these guys need training. Specifically DS.

Hoopajoo

As geo just said, Austin definitely needs training. He walks in straight lines and cannot do anything.

Darkstar is capable of playing offense but not defense, and his offense is merely average. He has plenty of room for improvement.

Achilles is very new to the game and also walks in straight lines and cannot play soldier at all....

Credge are you merely trying to be a hater? Or are you THAT BAD at FF that you think thiose newbs don't need training? Did they own your ass?

Darkstar is not a league player nor amazingly good, so that would make our team: me, gator, 2 very new players, and a non league average player that needs to learn defense entirely. We legitimately want to participate in the coaching of new players.

I for one recently started www.ffschool.org which is a work in progress mind you, but it is merely one of the steps I am personally taking towards the bettering of the game and training of new players, so stfu please.

As for gator being newb friendly, he is making strides. I mean, c'mon, he plays in UGC.

oh really, I wasn't aware of that.

You're just a hater so I'll stop replying to you.

Credge
06-30-2008, 05:47 AM
:rolleyes:

You're right. I'm totally oblivious to player skill, especially those of players who I've been in two clans with. I'm just hatin' on you guys for some reason. Dunno what the reason could be though. There's no sarcasm. I honestly don't know why I would be 'hatin'.

Speaking of.

Credge are you merely trying to be a hater? Or are you THAT BAD at FF that you think thiose newbs don't need training? Did they own your ass?

Hypocrite. Get a grip.

Edit: Just some FYI, you guys are one of the bigger reasons why FF league play has died down and turned into some gay hybrid of itself.

TBH, they're just jealous that they won't likely to be able to start up a clan in the FYC league.

Back to topic, the point they are missing is calling ourselves ^gods isn't elitist in the bit, in fact, it's opposite of that. Now worship me or I shall strike thee down. See what I mean? Everyone else gets it but you two. It's like an inside joke that's common knowledge...

Back to real topic, FYC league is getting those who are currently not in a league, or who've leagued before, and simply aren't that great and want to learn more, or just pubbers who've never really put any thought into playing in a league before. We don't pretend to know what people want, but this is an option we want to give the entire FF community to be a part of something additionally, other than pubbing at their current skill level.

The idea is this. 1 or 2 league level players(thats right, I said 'league level', meaning they could just be phenomenal, but never played in a league), and the rest would be regular pubbers(read the paragraph before this)...

How would this work? How could we judge a person's individual skill level to sort of balance this out, so that most of the clans in the FYC league would be overall similar skill level? Well, we have a system in place that would essentially provide us with the info we need to know about that player, such as literally watching and seeing how they play, asking key questions, such as have they played in a clan/league before, and ask more detailed questions such as having the ability to conc, or air strafe, or concaim etc. If they answer yes to most of these things, and we see their skill being sufficient to be exceptional, then they can generally become a clan leader so they can teach others how to play.

Once we've determined the skill level of a certain player, we then allow the player to take a look at the type of clan they'd like to be in, as well as have the clan keep an eye out for the type of recruit they want, and allow both the clan and the player come to a joint decision so we can find the best fit for the player/clan.

We should be thanked for wanting to play in the diaper league and train some pubbers, if you in fact care about "the way this works."

And how am I a hypocrite Credge? You still hatin over there in your bloody panties? These are the FF forums you know... we could settle this 1v1... Or wait... that would probably ruin FF some more somehow, because I would own you. Forget the 1v1 and go back to trolling the forums... Thats what you do best.

I believe we've already been accepted into the league... so you can behave now.

To everyone else, consider this a formal invitation to {FYC}. Clan members and clanless alike are welcome to join, but in joining, you are telling others of your ilk that you’re down with having a good time.


Step 1, Check. On a side note, I had thought that FYC membership was automatic, if you put the tag on you were in. Anything else would seem to be a bit elitist, an "only the choosen can join" type of thing. What are the new membership requirements?

Can I be a spare for Hoop and gator? I'd just show up to practices, I don't care what ya'll think about them, it'd be cool to learn some of their tricks, although personally I think much of their strength comes from the fact the two of them play together all the time and communicate well. Something not really taught, but learned from a long time of playing together.

Indeed credge, you are right when you say "The point of the league is to get those who aren't as good better, not by playing against better people but by playing with better people."


Scuzzy

You have to be a member of the community group - and the forum to play in the league. You have to be a member of the community group to be considered to be in FYC. Just wearing the tag doesn't count, simply because without the group you would be excluded from events by default... all events are announced through the community group. As to requirements - we still have open enrollment. Rules do however exist and they are stated on the {FYC} forums. http://z4.invisionfree.com/FYC/index.php?showtopic=73

Hoop and Gator have registered in the league under team "-p*"

They are exceptional players and should make exceptional teachers. I hope to see their roster full.

Currently league rules are being worked over by FYC leadership. Please keep tabs on the FYC forum for league rule updates.

Perhaps have 1 UGC member per team, would be more like the Indian Cricket premier League where they have 1 international class player leader a team of 10 lower league others.

Except on a smaller scale.

50..love the idea bro..seriously...gawd i wish i had more time to play, i would definitely get in there and do this..it sounds awesome. Cant wait till i do have some playtime..gonna be a while though..I would be hesitant to try until i knew that i had the time to devote to it..unfortunately, i dont know when that will be.. :/

I do have one question, this forum that you speak of, is it this one or another one that you guys have set up. I looked but didnt see a link or a mention of another forum..maybe its there and im just going blind from old age..lol


Edit: Never mind, i found the link..im just goin blind..lol

ok well wrong.

If training new players is the ultimate goal, surely our efforts in the league will be appreciated. I guess you fail to comprehend... anything.

Egotistical... well I'll explain it plainly to you now because it seems we are of a different paradigm: This is a video game. People in video games, who win, get to talk about how good they are. It's the way it goes. You know? No? m k... well I tried.

Meaning just because they're still physically there, doesn't mean they get to participate. I will discuss this with the rest of the FYC admins, I know at least 1 or 2 other admins agree none of the goodfellas group should be able to participate. The idea is to get better, but not to shove it in people's faces, and that's the general attitude the goodfellas clan represents, so as long as I'm a leader of the FYC league, I will not stand for things like that.
