Hey whatsup l4dnation and hello my fellow l4d2 gamers. I've been thinking about l4d2 recently, just essentially feeling inspired. I noticed how dead it has gotten since Rail's departure, there just hasn't been any tournaments and I can't think of any other word to describe the l4d2 competitive state right now other than (banal).

 I mean, it's the same maps over and over being played on the same cfg, it's just a bit flat for my taste and I hope you share the same views as I do on the matter;). So I've just been trying to think and get creative with it to the best I can. It is kind of tough but if I can get some accommodations with some of the ideas I've come up with, maybe then we'll spark something new and cool, and exciting *crosses fingers*.

I'll try to be as clear as I possibly can and just lay out the goals in order of 1,2,3,4.... etc...

1. It'll be a double elimination tournament having 12-24 teams

2. The mandatory played configs will be Confogl,Promod,Zonemod, EQ preferrably but if it's not available acemod, Apex/retro. They will be selected 1 for each week of the tournament; unless being a finals/grandfinals match

3. this is where the line of what "skill" is becomes blurred, the goal is for teams to adapt and be forced to think instead of going through repetition and having the ability of easy prediction. - There will be a list of 3 campaigns to pick from (Selected by the admins for the week) of which both teams must agree to play on one of the three for their cup match, if they can't agree the admin will force select the map.

4. This will be an international cup, so there will be one away and one home server, very standard rules for a cupmatch; I'm counting on most people that read this post will have experience with this type of thing.

5. I just want to say thank you to the admins who have served this community, who are still serving and have been for a long time. I don't have any experience running a tournament, please if you could help me or give me some pointers on how to run one I'd be very grateful as this will be my first, I do confess my ignorance in this area and I do very much need guidance. Sir, Fig, Prodigysim others who might also have some helpful criticism or can help point me in the right direction I'd very much appreciate it. Again, thank you all so much in advance your service is most laudable.

From,
Big Bear.

P.S. I have no idea how I'm going to be able to do this without Rails, he was a great caster. We have no hype for our tournament viewers.

I also need Sir to work with me since he owns most of the servers people play on, and he doesn't have the cfgs installed to them. So without those 2 this is going to be really rough, I can tell already.

(Classical Education)

Hey whatsup men/women on l4dnation, I thought this would be a good idea to create a place on these forums for education, I for a long time wasn't at all founded in this area given my past, as a result I started trying to catch up on a lot of what I thought I was missing out on, luckily I'm just a kid still and I started getting it together at the age of 21; then I realized that others didn't actually have what they thought they had obtained.

I want to say first and foremost schooling is not an education, you may think you know something but the truth of the matter is, most people don't know what they actually dare I say "understand" so they draw a conclusion without knowledge, this is where conflict does actually stem from, there's a few proverbs that do indeed confirm this.

(Proverbs 13:10 Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.)
(Proverbs 29:23 A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honor shall uphold the humble in spirit.)

So without further ado, below are a few podcasts that I came across, there's some interesting material that I hope may help a lot of you, I try to stay away from foolish occults and opinions so if I may inquire to keep this part of the forum very reasonable and kept far away from sedition -

https://soundcloud.com/artofmanliness/episode-51-why-your-twenties?in=artofmanliness/sets/most-popular-podcasts

My personal take on getting a proper education would be (Epistemology, Latin, Hebrew.)

Linguistics - http://www.utexas.edu/cola/centers/lrc/eieol/latol-0.html

Nothing is really guaranteed, so you need to put some effort into what you want, this is for you guys out there who are just lost on what to do. http://www.openculture.com/freeonlinecourses

As for books you can search all you want throughout the entire world for self help, 11 billion dollars in 2008 was how much money people spent on self-improvement books. You will not find a better one than the Bible, do some research on it don't just believe me or anyone else, test its validity yourself.
     


(WARNING) - The writing above is not for people who think they have arrived, I do very much care for you but you're wasting your own time facing a worn out precedent. This is for people who are capable of intellectual honesty first with themselves then others.



P.S. - (The Bible for those that have a religious background or want an insight into psychology)

I have found no quarrel with the Bible but only the illiteracy found within fables spoken in churches, perhaps there is a misunderstanding. Examples - (Devil) = to slander, attack. (Satan) =  literally "one who throws (something) across" the path of another "plotter."In biblical sources the Hebrew term the satan describes an adversarial role.

It is not the name of a particular character. Although Hebrew storytellers as early as the sixth century B.C.E. occasionally introduced a supernatural character whom they called the satan.

My proof that the devil is indeed found in the details, It's nothing more than our own convictions,  we ourselves slander others and attempt to hold them down with us, why else would there be a reason for a conscience, when one can't feel anymore the compass of his/her soul they become psychotic, isn't that more concrete?

We create our own problems and blame others, we engineer the monsters, is it not quite simple?
Below you'll find a statement of choice, a recurring thing that will indeed fix or harm the victim, the victim being himself or herself can only be recovered when they are brought back to the ability of understanding they always have a choice, Just food for thought.

(Proof first by using etymology, and now by using the Bible, Isaiah 66:4)

I also will choose their delusions,
and will bring their fears upon them;
because when I called, none did answer;
when I spake, they did not hear:
but they did evil before mine eyes,
and chose that in which I delighted not.

Servers & Adminning / Re: Bring back the wait command

(Epilimic) :"Oh, and is that melee exploit you're referring to the same lagcompensation exploit grizz was using for his m2's?"

(Grizz) : I detest this statement quite strongly, I care not in fighting for a title nor a name or rank itself among all that is vanity. I do care strongly for the truth and that alone, let me be free without accusation for I was made known in public and spoke as a fool, this is truth because I am true in the eyes of the many witnesses and of that I've acted as one because I was one, for my conscience also full of conviction did confirm this in secret.

Through my foolishness you've beheld leave me free of charge as I have been trying so hard to live rightly; be also honest,grave,sincere, which is what I do inquire. If I have been accused of cheating in any way let it be known that I'd at least be an honest fool, If by any means that I have cheated make it known and let us not backbite or slander in secret.

I had always intended through my sorrows and self opposition that was made manifest to all a display of double mindedness to at least be honest, knowing that I have yet to willfully cheat in any way, if by any means I have cheated or offended, then I do sincerely apologize and do seek exoneration of any accuser, less it be false. We must take mind to our words and our actions, for they shall be our recompense in the day to come. Is this not a truth? whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

I now will withdraw respectfully, have a good day/goodnight.

[IHS] is looking for a solid 4th for upcoming events. The team primarily consists of North and South American players but European players that are interested in joining an international team and are able to play on US (NY and Chicago) servers are also welcome. All inquiries should be directed at myself. http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198016345275/
