Same was the case here till a few months back. But now with Game Box at Reliance WebWorld trying to change that, I have seen seing tournaments being conducted more regularly. My ultimate aim is to participate in the WCG 2005!

If I get the cahnce to be there, I would be competing in CS:S and NFSU2.

Don't know about the cash buddy. I don't think it has been announced yet. But you can be pretty sure that the package will be nice and fat!

I agree that Gaming looses some of the fun when you start to compete on a Pro Level. When I was in the city finals of NFSU tournament here. I used to get that queesy, butterflies in the stomach feeling. Gaming was not so much of a relaxation then. But once you win, the feeling of actually beating a fellow competitor is as good as in any other competetive sport!

@allwyn: Well, I wont mind hosting one but I dont have a legal copy. If I host it, it would mean that those with the 1.32 Point Release versions wont be able to play. And I can host only after 11PM as thats when my free download times start. If all are game for it, then I am ready. But the best idea will be to simultaneoulsy jump into one of the already available servers.

well even i dun have the legal copy for now and forget about the point 1.32 relase patch out here cause i hardly patch the games if and if only a necessity arises :wink: and after 11:00 PM come on man....way too late.....make it morning shifts anything after 10:00 Am would do :p

Btw joining to already setup servers seems a good idea but then i dun suppose lotta ppl will be able to connect simultaneaously(depending on the servers limit of course).....but anyways lets just make a test round once and then find out what we are up against.....so who else is up for it :twisted:

Let me get my DataOne connection and I will host the server, although be warned that if you guys dont have the 1.32 Point Release, the server will automatically reject your incoming connection. I can downgrade to the 1.11 version, depending on the number of players. Of course, all of my multiplayer games are up for playing online the second I get my connection installed. :D Heck, considering how I have two more spare computers, I might as well host a dedicated server.

And when are u exactly planning to get this connection in near future prof.....make it as per IST :lol:
And yup it would definetly mean a downgrade for u as count me out on 1.32 point release i.e unless i figure out a way to get it hooked up with my Q3 8) So that means we wait right??????

My DataOne connection should be up and running within this week or early next week, depending on how fast they give out the connections around here. Oh well, if everyone has only the v1.11 PR, then I will have to definitely downgrade, but downgrading UT2004 is out of the question. I can however install a lower versioned UT2004 on another box and run a dedicated server via ucc.exe. :D And yes, we wait at least a week and then I will put up my IP address online and keep it updated with ezDNS, so that unless there's a power outage, anyone can login to the server and play at any time. (Of course, I will host different maps and gametypes, so that shouldn't be a problem too)

Cyborg Agent
Yeah, might as well take advantage of the uncapped connections DataOne is giving out until June. :lol: I already have Q3A, RtCW:ET and UT2004 as dedicated servers on a LAN here, so pushing it out to the Internet shouldn't be a problem. The only thing I am worried about is about the UT2004 hacks and the Q3A cheating that can happen since the hack detection for UT2004 and PunkBuster for Q3A wouldn't be enabled because of the downgrades. :( Oh well, I guess thats a risk that we will have to take. :D Rest assured, the second I get it up and running, the IP address will be sent out.

Thats great Prof! I am already dreaming of the old days! But offcourse, now that you will be hosting it, it seems I will be the one who will be jumping like a monkey! Revenge is sweet, ain't it Prof? :)
