The first KTK of the year starts tomorrow, and its great to see so many people signed up. I hope we will all have a great time and that the season will be fun for everyone. If you find that a map that is utterly horrible has been selected for this season, tell me and I might remove it. After all this is about having fun.

Unfortunately due to Christmas this season only has place for 10 maps, so if you find that any of your favorite maps haven't been selected its most likely due to this season having to be so short. If you know of a great map that you want to see next season, send me a PM here or on IRC.

Nooo not skull, tons of people already know that map, which defeats the point! I like KTK because if you spend more time learning the week's map then it can really pay off... and conversely if you don't put any time in then you don't do so well... with skull only half the people will need to put any time in I reckon.

Skull was already played on KTK, so was vdm3 and I don't think vdm3v3 is that much different so I suggest not using even that one "again". We aren't going out of new maps, are we?

Skull wasn't chosen for this season because of the limited time and as stated above, a lot of people already know the map. It is however likely that it will be played during 2010.

JohnNy_cz no we aren't out of new maps, far from it. However as this is the first season in a while and the first that I run, I decided to play it a bit safe and mostly take maps I already know are good but not played a lot.

I mean really? You do NOT need to restart server after you add maps. Added maps will be visible after map reload and it happens when the last player leaves the server, or after 12 hours of server idle.

"I mean really?"

That expression is just $$$

On topic: I have tried to get puh to update and start up the csn servers again (since they have been off for quite a while) with new maps so lets see what happens

Didn't think that far, I've always done rcon restart, but now I know

Under 4 hours remaining!

When do we get to find out who we're playing first & who is in our division? Do we just play everyone in our division within the 3 hour timeslot and winner is decided by wins / fragdiff, or will there be like quarters, semis, finals? Sorry for all the q's, its my first time.

You play everyone in your div best of one, and the best will play a final best of three.

I'm very dissappointed Zaka second guessed himself with dad version 2, the original is waaay better and unique.

And I agree with Rikoll and en_karl, skull is the most underplayed, underrated map. I know the point of ktk is to expose new maps but I think the quality of the maps should be weighed more than the novelty..

Well I like both dad and dad2. Dad2 is not a replacement for dad. Fun experiment to see how much difference the size of the architecture really makes.

Runamok.foe Dad2 was chosen simply because I believe it suits duel better than Dad. Again, we only have 10 weeks until Christmas, now KTK will most likely start again after QHLan so if you want Dad to be played next season, suggest it then. Same with Skull, I just didnt have a lot of space for maps this time.

Congrats Stev! A bit gutted that our game was 19-4 in my favor and you went on to win the final 15-1, but hey! That's all part of the game - I shouldn't've lost 2 group games if I wanted a shot in the final. Some of the results were very strange, with opponent A winning over B easily, B over C easily, and C over A easily - I think the different styles people adopted for the map sometimes worked really well against other styles, sometimes not, meaning the results were way more unpredictable than usual!

Good stuff - think I'll zip up my favorite games from the tourney and put them on CHTV tomorrow.

There is a huge demo pack, with all tournament demos at Filefront.
http://www.filefront.com/14732971/KTK14-Doomed-20091015.zip/
They should be categorized correctly.

Darff: Right, but was really fun anyway
Zappater: Nice work! Downloading...

Just want to point (I'm not sure is this is the best thread for it) that i really don't like DakDM4b.bsp, horrible map imho. I rather prefer tuhnu1.bsp or maybe rf2.bsp

Time, while it won't be removed I can say that if the map is disliked it will never be used in a KTK I run again.

Why are the threads locked after the round was played? It would be nice if there was discussion about the maps available for later generations...

Here are heatmaps of the Doomed games, I did not include the finals in the rookies/oldies but in the main one.
