So i know i have been on and off on this forum from time to time...but I installed qw again and this winter i will play on regular bases. Unless i win the lottery i will set up a kenya community asap. I know that in order to play on kenyamaps you need dedicated admins to organize it, i know there are players out there that want to play some kenya but you need some sort of community to make it interesting (...and develop?).

What i want for this forum-thread is feedback (...and help?).

In order to succed you need this:

1. A nice website
2. Admins that put in a good effort
3. PR
4. Players that want to play

I can do 2 of these things by myself, i need help with #1. I think #4 will take care of it self if #1-3 are in place.

Other than that all help/support is much appreciated =)

So these are the formats i suggest:

- 4 vs 4 rpickup
- FFA

In a 4 vs 4 rpickup we have a rankinglist of players only (...coz there are no clans). For example: players get 1 point for just showing up and play. Then you get 1 point for each map win. Rpickup decides the teams. So play as many (or few) maps as you want. You can even fakenick, it does not matter. Any new nick will be displayed in the rankings anyway so if you want to get high in the rankings you need to stick to one nick. If you dont care about the rankings then its better that you fakenick and play, rather than dont fakenick and dont play!

All the admin needs is the demo, so that he can fill in the score and stats for the rankings.

Same system with FFA (almost), but here we need an admin present to origanize the game...and we need servers with FFA mode?.

I think we need some sort of ranking/league/tournament in order to have something the community can look to. We cant create a community by just saying "play those maps". We need to make it interesting and fun for the players, we need to make content to them. And remember that playing kenya is about fun, not about fame

So give it some feedback and let me know if you are interested to play kenya this winter.

This is a nice initiative Link!
I always tried to participate in the Kenya's in the past.
Unfortunately I can not help you with anything than #4, myself that is, if I'm able to find the time?
Between 21.00 and 23.00 CET would be the best possible time for me for some FFA action.
Good luck

Would be nice indeed. Specially a 4on4 tournament with Kenyas again would be sweet. I think muffin and kloze wanted to start something like this not too long ago, and I'm even now a bit bewildered to why it never happened. Hopefully this will happen. At least count me in as a player

It will happen if enuff players show interest here. My kenya-CV should speak for it self...i started CMT tournament, i also did a duel tournament with custom maps (rwild, skull and rf2test ... i think). I got no clue where those webpages are now

Ok so .... lol ... i found the old site i did last time in 2006:

www.qw4ever.com

Dont laugh!

As you can see the site sucked, but the content is there. You can see here that some 4vs4 games were played and we even got to finish the FFA tournament. Interesting to see from that time was that there always were curious specs who wanted to see clans playing kenya's vs each other.

And how about this great game:

Dead Rabbits vs MNY

Hot! :>

So there is hope ... but we need some more players

So when i sum it up now we got about 8 players?

I am gonna need about 10 more before i can start a FFA tournament/league.

And for the 4 vs 4 rpickup i still need some more players that commit to it.

I cant do this on my enthusiasm alone...need some more players
