    Guns at the ready for our second clan match!

    I've challenged Gaming Oldies to a clan match on Killzone 3 as it seems a few folk over there also enjoy the game.

    The format hasn't yet been decided so suggestions appreciated. My initial thoughts are:

    3 rounds on Warzone - we choose a map, GOs choose a map and we mutually agree on a third map. Alternatively the third map could be Guerilla Warfare on a mutually agreed map?

    If you're up for this, sign up below and post any suggestions for format.

    Martok warning from when I've arranged KZ3 matches. Changing from Warzone to Deathmatch is a pain in the arse and you end up frustrated sitting in a room wondering where half the players are. Stick with warzone and leave it at that.

    Thanks Shroud, I've taken your advice and revised the format:

    9.15pm start gathering together + short warm-up
    9.30pm start match
    3 rounds
    1st round on Warzone - SNR choose a map
    2nd round on Warzone - GOs choose a map
    3rd round on Warzone - map to be agreed by SNR & GOs

    Standard maps only to be used to ensure all who have Killzone 3 can play.

    As a reminder, Warzone is the mode where there are 7 different objectives within a map. These include "Body Count", "Capture and Hold", "Search and Retrieve", and two rounds of "Assassination" and "Search and Destroy" respectively.

    Warzone has 7 standard maps: Corinth Highway, Pyrrhus Crater, Bilgarsk Boulevard, Turbine Concourse SE-6, Frozen Dam, Akmir Snowdrift, Mawlr Graveyard.

    Map details are here.

    Take a look at the maps and suggestions please for our map of choice plus a second 'balanced' map that we can suggest as the final decider map.

    Our chosen map should be AKMIR SNOWDRIFT, and the final decider should be MAWLR GRAVEYARD. Only reason is I like them. :mrgreen:

    Right then, maps.

    None DLC we have the following choices
    • Corinith Highway - the one with the wasp turrets pointing at each other across the map
      Pyrrhus Crater - the green one
      Bilgarsk Boulevard - the long grey street with the small crater in the middle
      Turbine Concourse - jet packs and the huge emp effect portal
      Frozen Dam - big dam, yeah the one you're stood next to, what you missed it?!
      Akmir Snowdrift - plenty of places to fall in the water, capture points face each other across the map, snowy ;)
      Mawl Graveyard - the one with the huge crusher

    Discount the following :-
    Corinith Highway as it tends to be a campers paradise with snipers and mechs pounding the spawn points. Turbine Concourse should also be discounted as it's far too easy to get a total lock down on it although it's a shame to lose the jetpacks.

    Include the following :-
    I think a no brainer is Bilgarsk Boulevard. All capture points are suitably removed from attack points for both teams. Plenty of ways to move around the map with some points that become skirmish areas. My other choices would be Mawl Graveyard, Akmir Snowdrift or Pyrrhus Crater. Mawl Graveyard can often feel the most brutal as it's all quite close quarters. Akmir suffers from very exposed mission points and Pyrrhus whilst a great map as with the two others can have partial lockdown achieved but not as badly as those that I've discounted.

    So far we have :-
    Bilgarsk Boulevard and Akmir Snowdrift as primary choices with Mawl Graveyard getting two honourable mentions as a second choice map.

    Abs

    I agree with Bilgarsk Boulevard as a definite map.

    I'm not so sure about Akmir Snowdrift because you can get lockdown in the spawn at the snow end with the low buildings (not the end starting in the multi-level industrial structure)

    I'd suggest as the other two maps:

    Mawlr Graveyard
    Pyrrhus Crater

    as I think they are fairly even.

    It's probably best that we come up with all 3 maps to suggest to GOs as I guess they are in the same boat in deciding on which to play on.

    Well we won but it wasn't quite the victory we were hoping for. :?

    I've made a thanks & apology post on their site here and here's a copy:

    I hope that they'll take me up on the offer and join us for some Killzone 3 with mixed teams for more balance and fun.

    Absolutely pissed off. I spent the best part of an hour trying to connect to a game, disconnecting, rebooting the PS3 etc etc. The comms then expired on me, and what with the heat last night that was enough for me.

    Sorry I couldnt join you all, but by the sounds of it it was a bit of a disaster.
