Intro | The Situation | Intelligence | Tactical | More Details!
Ok, here's the info. Go further down for the history and details.
2/1/00 - Please

Alternate server?? Death Valley ip: 188.8.131.52:27910
Please do not use a clan name or an AGQ2 tag as we are not representing them. We are reps for the good old USA/CAN/North America d00ds!!! :)
Check out the demos and
other crap site! GET
|The opening page is about the coolest this page is gonna get for the
foreseeable future. I am not a web designer and don't have the time to
make a really fancy page. So it's just going to be No
Frills! :) I also want it to be easy to download and just the
facts to maximize information and your time in getting the essentials.
This page best viewed with Netscape and 800x600.
Last Update: 6/21/1999 Latest News (see demos page for latest)
Invasion of U.S. Q2 Servers
|Whether you know or not, the
U.S. is being invaded. That's right. Our Quake II servers are under random,
merciless attacks (usually on Thursday or weekend nights :) from those
buggering Brits! I've seen the mayhem first hand as an observer and let
me tell you it's not pretty. Are we going to let this go unanswered?! Are
we just going to sit around or are we going to take up arms and rise up
against the Throne?! :) The so called "Empire"?! Viva La Revolution! In
the immortal words of Bill Clinton...or was that George Bush?!
will not stand!
|If you're up for the challenge, then read ahead. If not, please maintain secrecy as the element of surprise will make for a highly entertaining invasion...|
The Situation | Intelligence | Offensive/Defensive Tactical Scenarios | Join Up!
You have been chosen to participate in an elite corps of marines to serve and protect the Q2 servers and honor of the United States of America from invading forces from abroad. Yea yea yea. Blah blah blah!
Wanna get straight to it and see what's going on that'll make your blood boil for some intercontinental combat?! The UK web site is right here. Go to the World Tour section and see what I'm pumped up about!
This is an invitation for any interested U.S.A. Quake2 player. People from AGQ2 are being contacted as that is where many of them hang out. If are in North America (Canada, Mexico, Alaska :) and are reading this and feel you just have to be a part of this then great.
|Intelligence on the "enemy" is very easy to find and readily available.
I will be listing all sources of information including web sites, skins,
demos, and enemy communications transmissions. Most of the
participants read and/or post to the newsgroup uk.games.computer.quake2 where they discuss all particulars of Quake2 including recent "World Tours" and meets etc. They also have an associated web site for the newsgroup. Can you believe that?! Unbelievable! Kind of cool actually. Anyway, according to the web page, world tours are usually held on a Thursday night while their local meets are held on Saturday night. They get together on an IRC channel beforehand to discuss where to invade or meet.

The World Tour
They claim on the web page not to have any sort of strategy but from what I have seen and read they do. They have enough people to attack and also cover key areas such as lifts, armour, and weapons respawn and then think its funny to watch yanks running around with nothing but blasters (unless its a decent lithium server). A good counter strategy would be to uhhh....have enough people to attack and also cover key areas such as lifts, armour, and weapons respawn and then think its funny to watch the Brits running around with nothing but blasters.
They also have their own UK skin so they know who not to attack. Funnily enough it's red, white, and blue (with a UK flag on the front and the letters U K on the back). It makes sense to develop a USA skin which looks different enough so we can tell the others apart also. If anyone wants to volunteer for that let me know. I was thinking a Desert Storm tan or green camoglouge theme would be cool with a US flag on the front and the letters USA on the back. They also have a UK Flag to go in the score section where the grunt head would usually be. So we need a USA flag for that as well.
You can also download demos of their games here
and another one here.
Here are some discussions from the newsgroup on dejanews about the world
tours. I couldn't get it all but also try clicking <next matches> at
the bottom of the page:
Here's a discussion I started (posted as "firstname.lastname@example.org" but its not
there...) with an inoffensive but funny taunt about "crouching brits" that
went on a few tangents: link
They'll be finding out soon enough. :-)
Offensive/Defensive Tactical Scenarios
Here are some scenarios which I think would be fun and I'll go over each in turn.
1) Defend servers under attack
1) Defend servers under attack
2) Launch invasion of UK servers on Saturday
when they meet.
3) Invite them to a match on US and/or UK servers.
|What You Can Do
Don't worry about whether you are an hpb or what your skillz are. I'm not that great a player but I love playing and it's all in good fun. I'm not gonna blow smoke up your ass and tell you these guys are no good. They are actually quite good especially considering the ping levels they may be at over here. However, watch my demos and you'll see they're not unstoppable as their demos would have you believe! Another reason they come out on top in thier campaign is that they can team up but the other US players there cant. But that's about to change! :)
If you are interested in any of this send
me an email. More details will be given out over email
than here. Let me know if you are interested in defense and/or invasions.
We really need as many people as we can get for defense/invasion to really
put one over on these buggers! :)

If Canadians wish to join let us have your Canadian skin or someone make a North American skin!
I would guess an invasion on a late Saturday afternoon (same times as above) would have more people available. If we could get 37 people for the group pic maybe we can get almost that many to create a massive invasion force!!! The times would be the same as for the defense plan but on a Saturday.
The games are meant to be conducted in the spirit with which it was intended. Have fun. Therefore, although we will insult and taunt the enemy, trash talking and harsh language and the like is not wanted or appreciated. Some people would say that even yelling insults or taunts is childish behavior and that, hey, let's just play the game. Well, I think no matter how old or young you are, anyone into this stuff is young at heart, and therefore they still know how to have fun whatever they're doing! Thanks.
And they started it. And now they're going to PAY! :-)
