CTF w/ Fortress Physics Tournament 1

About

History

Capture the Flag (CTF) and Fortress have always been 2 completely independent, yet fun-filled game types. The concept of CTF has always intrigued me (Durka), but the physics used in CTF servers aren't appealing to Fortress players. So, one random day a few months ago, I decided to combine CTF and Fortress. The object of the game is similar to CTF, but the way in which the players' bikes move resembles Fortress physics. And thus, CTF w/ Fortress Physics (aka CTF w/ FortFzx) was born!

The Game Type

The Map

The map itself is far different from the generic square and rectangular grids used in Fortress and CTF respectively.
Below is what the CTF w/ FortFzx map looks like:

This is the default map used in the game type CTF w/ FortFzx

The Settings

General

  • A player gets respawned when either a teammate or an enemy passes through his base zone
  • A player can grind any wall for a little acceleration (cycle_accel_rim 0.75)
  • Normal Fortress Physics except...
    • walls_length (400 --> 275) decreased due to smaller grid than normal Fortress
  • A player can score the flag even if his flag is not home
  • If a player hasn't scored his flag after 90 seconds, it gets reset
  • A team can have a maximum of 4 players, however...
    • during non-tournament play, the limit is 5v5
  • After 3 and a half minutes, a death zone wipes the grid to reset everyone's FPS

Scoring

  • 0 points for a death
  • 0 points for a suicide
  • 1 point for a core dump
  • 4 points for a flag capture
  • 8 points for a round win
  • Unlimited rounds
  • First team to 100 points wins the match
