For those who haven't followed our related discussions on IRC or our Twitter page I shall repeat the note: We found a destination for our first UTvolution meeting! And it's not just decent, but awesome! More information about and images of it will be presented in this article. But first the most important part:
- ▪ DATE: September 2013 (within the first 2 weeks)
- ▪ DURATION: 3 days, Fri - Sun (you can join later or leave earlier)
- ▪ PLACE: Wuppertal, Germany (center west of the country)
- ▪ ACTIVITIES: LAN gaming, BBQ, billiard and much more
Ever since we opened to the public there were offers to donate for UTvolution. We, however, have been postponing to take those offers, because the site was not finished and we did not want to collect donations for something incomplete. We also wanted to see how this project evolves first.
Now that the site is completed and your help welcome, we hope there are still people willing to help keeping this place up.
We currently have yearly expenses of a bit more than 500€ to keep UTvolution running. These do not count in the sponsored servers though.
You can support us on our DONATIONS PAGE
(paypal, but you do NOT need a paypal account)
The biggest part is taken by the web server. It needs to be powerful enough to meet the requirements coming with our future plans for UTvolution. And it must at the same time ensure smooth browsing, of course.
EDIT: Donors receive a badge on this site that is shown with their posts. If you want one, mention your nick in the comment box of the donation page please.
Read inside to learn about our future concepts, what is being worked on and what is planned.
Those who were affected by this bug probably already know what is meant. "This" bug, was in fact three bugs with the same effect: They logged users out right after they had logged in and got directed back to the site from which they logged in.
Most important part you need to know about it though is that they are ALL fixed now.
After a while of relentless pursuing with the help of CaDiaN who had the issue, as well (until the end it never happened to myself), we finally were at the point to say: "Objective destroyed!" - bug was beaten - "Congratulations, you are the winner!"
Several changes were applied to our servers list. We unfortunately lost a few, but also got some new ones. Hence we should be set for future pugs and Quick Cups that are to come soon.
The former DE and UK PUG servers are not available anymore. Thanks to Predator and JaSs for sponsoring those while they were up.
Update your favourites. Here are the new IP's:
FFA 188.8.131.52:7777 - (Password: fun , Admin: Predator)
PUG 184.108.40.206:7777 - (Admin: Mithrandir)
PUG 220.127.116.11:1337 - (Admin: Volcanic)
PUG 18.104.22.168:7777 - (Admin: Eagle)
The servers are still being updated. All changes should be done by tomorrow (Sunday) night. The FAQ page will be updated as well.
Some of you will remember Smoelenbook, the place to browse real life photos of UT players has been taken down long ago. Most will remember asserfors, its successor that additionally to browsing also allowed adding comments.
Latter has been down for quite some time now as well.
Hence it's time to open the gates to one of the most anticipated UTvolution features.
The UTvolution Gallery includes more than just portraits of members and teams. You can also finally share your screenshots in a convenient way.
As an additional goodie there is also a third section that allows you to browse and share your dream cars. Even more sections will be added later.
A search will be available on the gallery as well once it starts getting filled. It will allow you to find particular images quickly.
The Gallery Search will use the info you add to your uploaded pictures, hence please enter at least a Title! The more info you add the better for those who will view or search for you images.
The first Quick cup on UTvolution has ended and was a success. Atmosphere was as oldskool as it can get and the schedule was more than met. In fact we finished hours earlier than expected, despite of one server causing some delay.
Congratulations to the winners:
All results, screenshots and a link to the final stream video can be viewed on the cup page. You can also add comments directly on it now.
Since the templates are done now, the pages of future cups will be updated a lot faster (mostly during the cup). That can be tested with the next Quick Cup that is already in sight and will be announced soon.
Our annual summer break is coming to an end. The first players start dropping into the channel checking for pugs and most of last week's days where cloudy (well at least here).
In other words: time to get back into action. This is a good timing for our first Quick Cup! We will start with Power iDM, to give everyone a chance to polish their aim and oil their movements.
Sign-ups are open since last night and the cup will commence next
Check inside to learn more about Power iDM and what is coming next.
If you let your eyes walk around the browser window all along until they reach the address bar you will probably recognize there is something missing.
The cryptic page address that ended with a number was replaced by a name that actually describes the current page.
Being there you will realize why these kind of URI's are also called "user friendly addresses".
Another common name would be "SEO friendly URLs". That one lets you know that Google likes them too. Either way, they are not just nifty but also handy.
Read on to find out what's so cool about them.
There have been numerous changes and additions to the site lately, preparing it for the future concept and coming events.
Our latest step is the conquest of social networks. You probably already noticed the link panel on the left and on each article. It will offer an alternative for those who aren't familiar with RSS, possibilities to spread the word and even more. You can contribute by liking our pages and sharing articles and match reports.
Read about the difference, benefits and features of our social involvement inside.
Following the UTvolution 5on5 iCTF OldSkool Cup there have been quite a few discussions about timing, duration and layout of it.
Those disclosed some misconceptions in the community concerning the concept of the competitions on UTvolution.
To clarify them this article will answer the open questions concerning the future of cups and leagues on UTvolution and give an insight into them.
