You may or may not have heard about a challenge laid down to all snipers but it seems they have taken it up, and so was born the Medic vs Sniper competition.

I could post all the details here but I just spent all morning making a page to tell people all about it, so you'll have to read that instead. To save the eyes of people who are completely addicted to the BF2S forums I've shamelessly plagorized this site for the style (only seemed appropriate as the challenge was laid down here).

http://duffry.com/dmz/events/m_vs_s/

I'll be updating that page as and when new info comes along and posting here for important news.

Thanks, fixed.

Apologies to all who signed up before I added the X-Fire feature, could you few sign up again please?
I added this as a precaution against dumbasses adding bogus entries. I'll be putting on the list of people in each team shortly and would like people to let me know if they think that entry is bogus.

Thanks

Signed up on the sniper team, although medics will probably win.

Why?

"CLEAR!" "CLEAR!" "CLEAR!" "CLEAR!"

Oh and depending on the date I might not be there.

I say we play out the kits' true abilites.. if we try to balance out the kits then what is the point of this competition? It's to see wich kit is the best, so I say we let both classes do whatever they damn well like.

The kits are both specialized in one way, hence they are different kits so obviously you will win on a city map (probably anyway, ya never know) and we should win on whatever other map as long as its fair and like one city map + a map like or dragon...

I voted for Dragon and FuShe, I think snipers are going to get caned either way.

All you need is this: 2 medics. First one to be a claymore meatbag and the second to res him. From there, youd need a fairly good sniper to take out a medic at close range.

But it can be done.

You know what I find ironic?

BTW, the top bit should say Medics Vs. Snipers, not Medics V's Snipers

just being picky...

Wait, I was going through the rules and it said you're allowed to pick up an enemy's kit? Is that correct? So Say the snipers could bring down a lone medic, get someone to get his kit, and then start hea;ing/reviving his own team?

Yes, that is correct an the converse is true as well.
Likewise I would not punish a player who was revived with the wrong kit.
Only players who spawn with the wrong kit.

No, no it wouldn't.
Players making excessive use of the other teams kits will be warned and may be penalised.

I've added the recruit names. I've not done anything too fancy as far as validation goes so please report anything that looks wrong.
Ta.

Ah, ok, I see where you're coming from, you can't grab a medkit and run in the back healing/reviving your snipers, or start counter-sniping, but if you get revived with a sniper kit or see 5 of your sniper buddies go down you can revive them and then find a sniper kit.

Another note, will commanders be admining like last time, or does each side need to find a commander sometime before the match?

Commanders are permitted within the teams, admins will be playing as spectators (spawn once, suicide and follow the team).

OK, x-fire is required for all who want to play.

I would rather it weren't but I felt it the best way to:
a, get hold of people to let them know details (push method rather than pull)
b, have another way of ensuring that recruits are genuine

I'll remove that row, if you could sign up again please FFLink13.
I'll be removing other rows that are clearly bogus.
