Captain Will

That makes 8 people. People.

Do you see where I am going with this?

Here's the scoop. We generate a new Large (or maybe Medium) world, and all of us creates a brand new character. We then get randomly assigned into two teams (Red and Blue) and go Right and Left respectively. We will try to generate a lot of worlds and view them first, so that we don't get a ghey world with two corruptions next to the default spawn. Once we have a few worlds that are suitable we randomly select one to do our shit on - this way no one is at a real advantage knowing what the map looks like.

The rules are as follows:
We only play at set times (Sessioning)
There has to be at least 2 people from each team playing (to form a Session)
All characters must be brand new when the server is launched.
All participating players MUST log on at server launch to set up their respective spawn.
While playing you MUST be a member of your respective team (Red/Blue)
Your PvP MUST be enabled at all times.
Skeletor May NOT be summoned.

Rules or regulations I am unsure of:
TNT and bombs? may not be used to destroy homes (maybe allow bombs? not sure)
*Dungeon blocks are immune to explosions, but this puts the team at an advantage who got the Dungeon side.
Griefing / Stealing items from the other team - allowed? Would mean you have to guard your chests big time / hide them underground.
Maybe when we do the server-set up (creating spawns), each team brings one Pro character with a bed and the ability to shepherd his team through the corruption.
*This will mean that the spawns for each team are further away - and a corruption is between them :3

Please sign up if you are interested in doing this? For teh lulz. We could also fraps our major engagements and get publicities, i hear dey are like minerals only for cool peeps.


The 8 names I posted at the top were simply a combination of
a) first 8 to come into my mind who have played Terraria
b) the last 8 posters in this forum

I realise I may have forgotten people (MadZombie for one). Obviously we have Server limitations in place that 8 is the absolute maximum, if you are willing to participate please post your time-zone and times you will be available for sessioning™. I would like be able to do a session at least four or five times a week with more than 4 people online. So, for that reason - if you can't devote your life and soul to Terraria, you need not apply for the funzies (harsh but fair and slightly true).

Edit 2: Might be best if LoveLess hosts the server. Since it can be taken down after a Session. However I think Shadow's is better for lag issues. Maybe we can just get a super secret password and put it on the server when no-one technically SHOULD be logging in to the world.

Also, trust people. Don't use your new characters in single player and be ghey.

I'll bully Redigit into patching through two Flag items that drop on death.

Edit: Maybe we can use a random item that can be destroyed by a hammer as the flag for each team. But it wouldn't drop on death and we'd have no way of tracking who has the flag.

so in reality, the Capture the Flag wording was a bit misleading, I just hope it become a possibility in the future. This is more for the glory of just PvPing on a level footing - which is the best thing about Terraria.

Will you spend time mining? Or just 6-pool rush us with your pickaxes? :3

Since we can't do CTF do to item droppping limitations, I say we just make it so that each side has some object/tile that they must protect, and when it's destroyed game over.

I'm in on the condition the rules become greatly simplified.

Also, the one time I played on ShadowFlare's server it was lagging for everyone at 5 people. Everyone said my server, aside from the times when I said my internet would be horrible, preferred it. Don't know if there is any confusion, but just saying.

Well as soon as we get 8 people on board, we can test it out on both servers and see if it works.

I personally think we should use a medium or small world though, Large would just be like 'guise, where r u?'

Edit: Well I've been talking to one of the devs about this and there is a possibility to get flags implemented on the next patch.

He has been creating a PvP world and it currently looks like this:

Here's a closeup of one of the castle/bridges

What do you guys think? Want to use that? Or Randomly generated ftw?

Because of recoil I say we should construct a large... how would you say... obstacle course? lala is floor with 1 tile wooden platforms. one team could be in a higher platform shooting from very far away while another team tries to get across to the other side with melee weapons.

Pretty cool hmm? :3


May 21 2011, 1:50 pm Neki Post #11

I think a free for all team deathmatch on pre-built arenas with only limited gun choice sounds better, though it'd be hard to keep track of who is winning, lol.

Starting bare would be interesting. Either rush or mine fast to upgrade. The castle world looks fairly cool, I think we could do it on that.

May 21 2011, 3:11 pm NicholasBeige Post #13

Naww Team-Battles is where it's at... I think a Small pre-gen world with bare characters would be best.

We'd be fighting over land to get mushrooms for potions for later-game stages, mining to get gold/silver gear, summoning bosses to get demonite and PvPing all the time! Come on people sign up if u're interested..

I'll edit the OP with people who have given details so far..

I actually talked to the guy on a server that was posted on Reddit. I asked if he knew Cardinal and he said "Yeah, he hangs out in the IRC channel a lot".

I think my strategy would be to use the lava duplicating trick to flood the enemy castle ;o.

I'll join in on the PvP as soon as there's confirmation on mechanics that would allow us to PvP.
This should include...
  • Specific Items and Item dropping mechanics
  • Admin control
  • World Map control, allowing specification of indestructible blocks and etc.
  • Weapon Balancing - because, lets face it, no one wants to PvP when everyone's wearing the same Molten/Cobalt armor, and using the same weapons.

But, I don't mind helping you build awesome PvP arenas XD (in fact, I'd love to help build smth together =D)
tell me what servers, and I'll post it on my Servers and Suggestions thread.

Quote from Loveless
Pure PvP servers with team based objectives. Worlds will be generated before every match. Imagine a CTF server where towers are automatically created on either side of the map. Players can fight it out on the surface, or try to tunnel into the other tower.
Oh wait... okay...
Just missing Weapon Balancing for me to get very interested :sly:
