:HYPE VIDEOSTREAM OF FINALMatch Report
As some of you might have noticed
, the eventual 1.8 release of Soldat will introduce some major changes—one of which involves reducing the default map pool to 15 maps per gamemode
. (That means default Soldat 1.8 will only include 15 CTF maps)
If we followed the rules of previous seasons, this would mean that only 15 maps would be available for play in SCTFL. However, we believe that 15 maps is not enough to fulfill the needs of the competitive league. Therefore, the SCTFL admin team has decided to diverge from tradition and create an independent SCTFL maplist in preparation for 1.8.
We will start by removing
some of the least-played maps (Maya
) and replacing them with three new custom maps, which we hope will have a positive effect on the season and the competitive scene.
The new maps are:
1.)ctf_Aftermath made by Viral
2.)ctf_Fl (Frozenlake) made by zakath
3.)ctf_Catch made by zakath
All of these maps are already available on soldatladder servers in irc(quakenet) and in gather #soldat. In case you don't have irc read this post
We would also like to welcome Petterkowski
to the SCTFL Staff! May all our muscles be blessed from this day forth.
Thus, your friendly neighborhood SCTFL staff now looks like this:Gor, Fryer, ricr, Freeman, DutchFlame and Petterkowski
Furthermore, we welcome Nosejj
as an addition to our lovely helper team.
One final announcement: Soldat World Cup 2016 has concluded, and Team Poland has emerged victorious! Congratulations.
