We at LINES have to decided to organise another event!
This time round, LINES will be facing off against the undead forum hordes on Zombies!
It's first come, first serve, so please register on this thread as quickly as possible if you're interested in participating. :)
Zombies is a survival gamemode, where the human team must survive against the zombies, and the zombie team must aim to wipe out the humans (though they do respawn, rather than becoming 'infected' as in the 1.0 rendition). Zombies is essentially a heavily modified team deathmatch, however there are a few interesting caveats. The Zombies are given upgraded health (or human weapons are hugely nerfed, not sure) and are only able to use the spade to kill humans. That said, Zombies also receive a 'super-jump' powerup, whereby they are able to hit the ground below them with their spade and are then launched into the air. This is useful for quickly climbing high ledges or to escape humans, if you need to do so. Zombies can also cap the human intel to receive human abilities, such as being able to shoot guns to kill humans.
As in a real zombie apocalypse, humans will find that there is safety in numbers. You may find your weapons hugely ineffective against zombies by yourself, but with the help of your teammates you'll be able to make short work of a lone zombie.
The Blue team will be the humans and the green team will be the zombies.
For this match, LINES will take the role of the humans for 30 minutes. We'll defend as best we can and compete with eachother for kills. Then, after 30 minutes, the map/game will reset and the Forums will take the role of the humans, while LINES switches into zombie mode. While this doesn't allow for a 'victor' per se, in my opinion it will be more fun for all involved.
To encourage competition between teammates, this LINES vs Forums match will have four victors based on killcount, 1 from each team for each round.

Oh well.
