    Frozen Cortex RPS League anyone?

    Frozen Cortex has launched, ladies and gents!

    Easy posted previously about being interested in such a thing - anyone else fancy giving a league a bash? I am happy to run whatever needs running (probably through a combination of google docs and in-game management gubbins).

    Who's with me? If I get more than a few responses I'll get sign-up thingies in place and start.

    Looks like the in-game MP league feature is disabled at the moment - depending how long it takes to come back we could either wait for its return, or just work around it for the first season.

    [EDIT]
    If you're looking for friendly RPS opponents to practice on while we wait, folks who seem to be up for that so far:

    - bonuswavepilot
    - Rawrster
    - dadadave
    - Yugie
    - Zensei
    - CherryPhosphate
    - Zephro
    - Janek

    If you register your interest hither, please also let me know if you want me to add you to that list above of folks scrappin' for a challenge before we get started!

    It's FrEnd Zone, it will always be FrEnd Zone.

    I am happy to name the league in line with this truth (ie. Rock, Paper, FrEndzone), should it establish enough interest to get off the ground...

    I'd probably be up for this too. I played only two matches vs the computer and got my ass handed to me during the first, so I'd postpone it a week or so :)

    Heh, no problems there, I've only just played my first game too - likewise got stomped. Even if we're all noobs, I reckon playing with other humans, and post-match discussions is likely to be a better way to learn than slogging against the AI opponents.

    There was a Frozen Synapse subforum at one point; it shriveled like a paladin hit with a Staff of Withering.

    I'd be down to play, but how about Rock, Paper, Sulcus as a name? Keeping the RPS acronym is preferable, I find.

    Aye, I remember the Frozen Synapse subforum. I believe we may even have met on the retro-aesthetic blue field of battle once or twice, no?

    Rock Paper Sulcus isn't bad (if a bit obscure) - might put it to the rabble if enough interested sorts show up to qualify as one.

    Indeed we must have virtually slaughtered each other before.

    My cortex must be frozen, as I'm having difficulty coming up with other S words than sulcus.

    I would be interested in league play as well. I'd prefer to wait for the League feature to be enabled. It shouldn't take too long and it will likely offer easy support on a whole lot of things. For an update on when League play will be available: http://forums.mode7games.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=10516

    Maybe a week or two out?

    Hmm will keep an eye on that forum for updates... In the meantime as we gather members, maybe just some casual challenges to get into the swing of things? My handle in FC is also 'bonuswavepilot'. Feel free to fire me a challenge, if any of you are up for it! (I am an absolute noob at the moment though, so don't expect high level play just yet).

    I tossed a Match Challenge your way bonuswavepilot. Let's see what you've got! :)

    We're underway, Rawster! Didn't spot the team-edit thing until after we'd begun, so my team isn't customised to my specifications in our game, but that's all aesthetic at this point anyway.

    Same for me, so no worries. I also set it up so all our guys have the same baseline stats (average in everything I believe). That way the playing field is level. Anytime I've done 'Random Teams' players seem to have some really random stat setups.

    Also interested and also just joined the forum to participate. My/coach name is Zensei (team is Orange Guacamole).

    dadadave and Yugie, challenges tossed your way. We've got a wide open field in the dadadave game and VERY MUCH the opposite in the Yugie game, haha.

    Yeah except I can't use dummy runners or pass enough. I keep trying rugby style plays and they don't work.

    Anyway colour me curious as I got this yesterday and it's a blast.
