Thanks guys for the input.... When i get a chance i will update the first post with everybody's wantings (if that is a word - lol)
Sucks without my laptop (dang cord) -- gotta pry the mrs and the kids from the FBOOK to get on!!!
I would like to play on zombie, on Black ops.
Call of duty
black ops like hell bo powens golden eye
i go with black ops
Black Ops' multiplayer is way more fun than golden eye even though their multiplayer gameplay is very much alike - controls, leveling, weapon classes and unlocks etc. But in my opinion Black Ops has better maps and weapons, more realism, matches can be played by 10 players (Golden Eye supports only 8 playe multiplayer). Also I find the COD multiplayer modes more fun, especially wager matches' modes (oh, and don't forget zombies). I would gladly participate in a COD tournament. I suggest demolition, domination or HQ mode... basicaly any tactical mode
I vote Black Ops as well
is there a date for said tournament? and enough participants?
A few issues arise when you're dealing with the Wii console and a tourney.
1- If you have more than 10 players, how will you communicate with everyone to keep a good flow/pace/organization about the tournament?
My suggestion: Use Ventrilo or Teamspeak on PC's and communicate real time. Especially the admins and coordinators.
Pre determine who is playing and how you will setup the teams. Put people in groups of 5 (that's their team) and set up a date and time for two teams to stand off.
Obviously have rules in place like: 2+ people missing = forfeit or 10 minute delay max per match (ie: someone is late, trying to fill last spot etc...)
2- Game Modes. In my own opinion, it will make or break the fun factor about the tournament.
I would suggest Team Deathmatch, Domination or Capture the Flag over any other game mode.
I personally feel that the other game modes encourage "campers/camping". Since objectives are stationary in other modes, people will just sit and wait until someone comes to plant the bomb or what have you. Unless you are playing on a team that you know and have melded together to deal with this type of gameplay; it's not fun. But hey; everyone is different and I like to play those modes too but I am picky with whom I play with in those modes.
It also breeds "spam". Spam (if you don't know) in first person shooter games is like tossing a grenade blindly and hoping for the best. Or watching a certain area that you know is high in traffic and tossing random grenades and hoping for that "lucky kill" or just shooting a gun randomly in that spot until someone comes around the corner. "No skill shot" so to speak. lol
3- Wager Matches can also be very fun and require knowledge/skill of all weapons in the game.
4- Zombies is fun too and could be used for a tourney as well. Teams of 4 and see how far they can get? Highest scores? Most head shots? etc...
As for people complaining about lag; you need to check on a few things before blaming the game itself.
1- If you are the host for the match, you will 80% of the time incur some minor to major lagg.
2- Your ISP blows. Solution: Do some research and find a better ISP provider.
3- Weather. Is it snowing/raining outside?
4- Routers. If you have one, read up on it and understand how you can maximize it for gaming. (port forwarding I believe was already mentioned in this thread.)
5- You have a bad copy of the game (whatever format it is). Your Wii has some hardware issues.
6- Last but not least; how many people are using the same connection? Bandwidth caps? Do you have something downloading while you play? (if so, pause it or stop it until you are done playing your FPS game.)
