Hey guys!

 

Some of you may know me from my Red Dead Redemption Fun Nights, while others may know me from the Capcom Europe Forums, but starting next Tuesday I'll be running Twisted Metal Fun Nights every Tuesday at 7.30pm!

 

Before I go into the usual rules and regulations of treating each other with respect, I'd like to tell you how my Fun Night will work. So, allow me to explain:

 

The Fun Night itself will begin on Tuesday 13th November

 

This will give people time to free their busy work schedules up and also, everyone loves to be notified in advance, so consider this your notification!

 

How the point system works

 

Each player will gain points depending on where they place on the kill board (Leaderboard) each week.

 

Points will be allocated depending on how many players participate each week.

 

For example:

 

16 players

 

1st place - 16 points

2nd   - 15 points

3rd    - 14 points

4th    - 13 points

5th    - 12 points

6th    - 11 points

7th    - 10 points

8th    - 9 points

9th    - 8 points

10th  - 7 points

11th  - 6 points

12th  - 5 points

13th  - 4 points

14th  - 3 points

15th  - 2 points

16th  - 1 point

 

8 players

 

1st place - 8 points

2nd   - 7 points

3rd    - 6 points

4th    - 5 points

5th    - 4 points

6th    - 3 points

7th    - 2 points

8th    - 1 point

 

The Twist

 

  • The person to place 1st each week will win the privilege of selecting which map they'd like to play the following Fun Night.

 

  • The person to place last each week will select a vehicle of their choice. This vehicle will be off limits to all other players the following Fun Night, giving them the fighting chance they need to rack up those points on the Kill Board(the menu doesn't allow for you to do this, so I trust you guys to respect these unique rules :))!

 

  • The person to be killed the most each week will choose which weapons everyone uses on the following Fun Night.

 

 

I know a lot of people have found it hard adjusting to the controls of Twisted Metal, but they're very simple so allow me to break them down for you!

 

 Accelerate (Double Tap for Turbo)

 

 Brake (Double Tap to Reverse)

 

 Tight Turn (Hold to Handbrake Turn)

 

 Switch between Standard and Alternate Fire

 

/ Switch Weapons

 +  Jump

 

Up - Freeze

Down - Rear Fire

Left - Mine

Right - Shield

 

 +  Headlights On/Off

 +  Open Doors (Juggernaut only)

 

R3 - Changes Target

Select - Changes Camera

 

Movement During Flight - The Left Stick is used for moving Forward, Back, strafing left and strafing right, while the Right Stick is used for moving Up, Down, looking left and looking right.

 


Every 6 months your points will be tallied and the person with the most points will receive a little something. This may be in digital form or physical, but I'll be trying to arrange prizes for this (with the mods), so stay tight chap and chapettes! ;)

 

Now, this is intended to be a fun experience for everyone, so don't be afraid to join in with the fun as people of all skill levels are welcome and free to participate in this weekly fun night. Plus, you never know, I may just have a little something for you via a PM, depending on how well you play, how fun you make the game for others and other little random things like that, not mentioned! :D

 

Now for the boring bit...

 

Rules

 

1. Treat everyone with respect and in a friendly manner.

 

2. NO CHEATING. I trust you and know you wouldn't, so that's ok.....RIGHT? ;)

 

3. Swearing at each other is an absolute no-no, so please feel free to PM me if you are having trouble with someone and if it persists, that person may no longer be allowed to participate in future events....However, it shouldn't come to this, so just enjoy blowing each other up! :)

 

4. Add me (CaptainCortez) to PSN, so you can join my games without any problems.

 

Finally, before getting started, make sure your console is connected to the internet, and works fine online!

 

Not sure how to do this? Read on Clowns!

 

On the following two links you'll have simple explanations on how to set up a wired (or wireless) connection and which settings you should change, in order to get the best perfomance out of both your console, and internet connection:

 

1. http://uk.playstation.com/ps3/support/network/detail/linked224956/item97804/Connect-to-the-Internet/

 

2. http://uk.playstation.com/ps3/support/network/detail/linked224956/item85599/Choose-the-right-Interne...

 

Please Note: You may also need to change the settings on your router, and usually you'll need to allow your PS3's MAC Address before it will let you play online. Please check your router manual on how to do this.

 

If you have any further questions, or would like a more detailed explanation, then fire away in the specially dedicated "Technical Help" section, located on the forums, here:

See you all in two Tuesday's time!

Thanks for coming tonight guys!

 

The scores for this week were:

 

Vonhammer: 2nd, 3rd, 3rd, 2nd, 2nd, 3rd, 1st

Ostler5000: 1st, 2nd, 1st, 4th

 

6 people were in each game (apart from the last where I realised I completely suck and lost like 5 kills to 1 in a one on one - Where I cheated by killing him as he was messaging me. :P), so the scores go from 6 in reverse, meaning the following:

 

1st place - 6 points

2nd place - 5 points

3rd place - 4 points

4th place - 3 points

5th place - 2 points

6th place - 1 point

 

So, let's tally those scores up!

 

Vonhammer: 15, 12, 6 = 33

Ostler5000: 12, 5, 3 = 20

 

So, currently in the lead is Vonhammer with 33 points!
