Summer Cup 2010 & New Website

HomeNews

As you might have heard we're working on our third Summer Cup, what you probably don't know is that we're going to use new league software. We said we would combine both leagues in the new KMLeague version currently being used by the TS League, but thanks to Kendle (http://www.leaguecms.co.uk/) we've been offered a spanking new League Management System.

You can find the new site here : www.urban-zone.org/dragonfly (but if your reading this you're already here Razz ). Everybody that was registered on the CTF League can login without having to create a new account, sorry for the inconvenience TS League people. The website is still a work in progress but the foundations have been laid. You can already sign up for the Summer Cup 2010 (you can find the instructions further on in this article). The design will get a complete overhaul, if you are a graphics designer or think you can help us, or know someone who might be interested please contact us, we've got a lot of work on our plates.

Now you may ask yourselves "what was wrong with the old software?" our answer would be "it's like wrestling a lubed up rhinoceros with a bad temper". In short, we'll be able to do a lot more with this software that would ever have been possible with KMLeague, for instance you will be able to process your own scores, the opponent will only need to confirm the score and the site will be updated instantaneously. But we'll also work more on the community side of Urban-Zone, we're working on a download area where you can download all your maps/movies/urbanterror files etc. But most importantly we'll have the help and support we need from Kendle to customize the site to our liking.

I know I've just been bashing KMLeague, but we've been using the KMLeague software since 2007 when we were still called iourt.com and it has made possible that we could run this league for 3.5 years fairly successfully. For that I would like to thank the KMLeague developers for making this piece of software Wink available for free.

Anyway, moving on to the Summer Cup 2010! Last year we had 35 active clans hopefully we can beat that number this year. As usual all of the following game types are allowed : Capture the Flag (CTF), Team Survivor (TS), Bomb mode (bomb), Team Deathmatch (TDM), Capture and Hold (CNH) and Follow the Leader (FTL). Each week will have one game mode that gives 1 point, so instead of the regular 5-3-1 point distribution it will be 6-4-2. There is one thing though, both clans have to choose that game type, so make sure you discuss this before playing (we don't want drama). We'll also have weekly maps like we had in the last Winter Cup, and possibly limited gear, something that was a lot of fun in the last Summer Cup. More details will follow!

As it looks like Urban Terror 4.2 is a long way off we have decided to use UAC2 during the Summer Cup, people that can't use UAC2 (Mac and Linux users) must upload all demo's, for the smart asses we can see what OS you are using so don't even think about avoiding it, instructions on installation and usage will follow. We still require all players to keep their demo's on your hard drive until the cup is over and sometime after!

Signing up

We have done our best to copy all players and teams from the CTF League, unfortunately we weren't able to do the same for the TS League, so clans that we're only TS will have to register again.

Creating a New Clan

Refer to this guide for instructions on creating a new team :-

http://www.urban-zone.org/dragonfly/index.php?name=Core&file=article&sid=4

Old Clans

All clans from the CTF site have been transferred, though you may want to update your profile. Go to the Competition page, select "My Teams" and change your information as required.

Now you are ready to sign up to the Summer Cup. Go to the "Competition" page, where you'll see Summer Cup 2010. Over to the right you will see a small chain icon . Click this. Congratulations, you've successfully signed up for the Summer Cup 2010.

If you have any questions please ask the admins or post them here we'll answer your questions asap. We understand that learning a new "system" is annoying but in the long run it will be worth it, thanks for your cooperation!

There is a manual for the Competition system which you can view here :-

http://www.leaguecms.co.uk/index.php?name=Core&type=3

In particular these pages shows you how to create a team and manage your team profile :-

http://www.leaguecms.co.uk/index.php?name=Core&file=article&sid=86
http://www.leaguecms.co.uk/index.php?name=Core&file=article&sid=87
http://www.leaguecms.co.uk/index.php?name=Core&file=article&sid=88
http://www.leaguecms.co.uk/index.php?name=Core&file=article&sid=89

You also have a "Player" profile, which is created automatically when you select the "My Player Profile" link or when you create a team. These articles describe how to manage your personal Player profile :-

http://www.leaguecms.co.uk/index.php?name=Core&file=article&sid=83
http://www.leaguecms.co.uk/index.php?name=Core&file=article&sid=84

As mentioned before, anyone who was registered on the old CTF site will have a Team and Player profile here. You will probably want to change a few things however as all country codes have been set to "Europe" and rosters may need a little updating as the KML site's database is a bit lacking in detail in places.
