Q: Why do I need to register?
As you know, the core ‘mission’ of the Weekly AGR Sessions is to provide
organised, scheduled, quality gameplay for those who are into TF, AGR
style. Most of the people who log on are there to play, but (as with all
public servers) others are there because they are bored or have other
issues. Although we’re only talking one or two players, we only play
once a week, for a few hours, and there’s simply no time to be
distracted by potential dickheads, trollers, teamkillers, teamdamagers,
and/or spammers of non-game related chit-chat. Therefore AGR server now has the
ability to recognize known/trusted players, and put restrictions on
those who aren’t.
Q: How do I register?
1. Connect to the server with what will be your ”official’, in-game name. Most of you already have a set name you always use, so it will be easy. Others have variations, so you will need to
decide on ONE NAME, and that will be the name the server uses to
recognise you (more info below).
2. Email me @ letting me know what your username is. You will receive a confirmation email. That’s it!
Q: Why not use a strict system like solnet had back in 2000 where only
registered players can connect?
A: I considered that, but we regularly get new, genuine players who
discover AGR by accident, and I’d rather let them join in.
Q: So how does this new system work?
A: There will be two classes of player: 1. Registered (ie trusted) 2.
Unregistered (ie untrusted) Registered players will be able to play as
normal. Unregistered players will have restrictions on what they can do.
Q: What if I change my mind and later want to use a different name?
A: No prob, just email me the details, and consider it done.
Q: But if I can’t change my name regularly, I just can’t be ‘me’, how am I
supposed show up, face the other players, and just play? It would
destroy my confidence, affect my game, and ruin everything.
A: “Harden the f**k up”. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unkIVvjZc9Y)
Q: What if I connect and then change my name during the game?
A: No, the server will know.
Q: How will I know if I’ve successfully registered?
A: You’ll get a confirmation of whether you are registered (or not) whenever you respawn. Also
there will be special features which only registered players will enjoy.
Q: Like what?
A: It’s a surprise
Q: What will happen to those who aren’t registered?
A: They will still be able to join in and play, but until they register,
there will be restrictions on what they can do, mainly things that could
disrupt games – eg they can’t vote, they can’t set dets, they can’t
damage teammates, they’ll receive 100% Mirror damage, and a bunch of
other fun stuff.
Q: What about putting brb-myname, or afk-myname?
A: You can still put stuff at the end of your name, as long as you DON’T
change the first, ‘official’ part of your name.
Q: So OMC, can I meet hot chicks at the Weekly AGR Sessions?
A: Probably not.
Q: Ok, what if I have more questions?
A: Email me.
That’s it people. Thanks for your co-operation, sorry for the hassle, but
I hope you understand that it’s for an excellent cause – the greatest TF games … EVER!!
