OMCs Birthday Extravaganza!


Hey people!!!

Ok, I’ve been busy map making, AND its my birthday, so this week I’m premiering TWO new maps – one for playing AGR , and one new Intermission map. Here’s me talking about it:


you know, although I mention ‘rampaholic’ there’s another map I might substitute for it, or both, I’m still deciding..

Had some feedback from a new player (‘echo’) recently, that the stock classes (which are largely unchanged from TF) are too weak for AGR. I usually just tell newbies ‘pick custom’, but the fact that they are there is an implicit endorsement, so newbies DO pick them, and this makes things *harder* for them as they get their arses kicked. I haven’t done it yet, but I cant see a reason not to update them. Most AGR players use custom classes anyway, so its time we adjusted the existing classes, or even… (heresy?) replace them with typical (custom) classes used by AGR players of 2019. Grappler, Warlock, Martyr…

Ok don’t panic, were just throwing ideas around here, this one comes from Jonan, and it’s on the AGR Forum¬† (which is the perfect place to have these on-going discussions). What do you think? Maybe ‘now and then’, for a change/challenge?

I don’t normally do this, but I’ve been playing a game called Bloodletter, a game made by Shp, who happens to be one of the (behind the scenes) technical advisors for AGR. Ok, it was made really fast (3 days!) for a contest called ‘Ludum Dare’, but it’s challenging, it’s free, and yes, I might even steal the ‘double barrel, 2 fast shots but slow reloading’ gun idea from it! Note: As a self respecting AGR player, I expect you to pick ‘Lunatic mode’, yea?


I *think* I’ve mentioned this before but AGR needs a proper trailer. A 30 – 60 second ‘ad’ for newbies.. The sooner I make this a priority, and sooner we get 32/32. Are you guys helping to spread the word? See if there was this trailer then ‘spreading the word’ would be as simple as passing on the link to your friends. I wonder what your opinions are as to what the ‘most exciting visual’ thing is in AGR. ie what to include to make newbies go ‘wow, that looks cool’..
