Back in the day, there was a type of tournament called First to Five. Basically, two teams would play against eachother, and whichever team would reach the 5th win first, won the round.
This type of play allows for some outrageously intense matches. It is far superior to most out of five, which can be decided already after 3 matches, while a first to five can drag on for up to nine matches.

I know a lot of players who used to play in this feel nostalgic about them, as I do. For them, I reckon it would be a great experience once more. For people who have never played a F2F, I can tell you it's an amazing tournament to play in.
In a single F2F round you can feel you are getting more greased as a team, since you can always have comebacks. A team can win 4 times, then the other can win 4 times, anything is possible.

During many of these matches, you can learn a lot about the game. They are at the same time fast-paced, but they do take their time, both your aiming skills and your tactical knowledge will vastly improve.
You learn to both rely on your own skills, as well as working as a solid team.

The best way to go about this, is to have arbitrarily assigned teams. Mainly because if you have people making teams of their own, you'll get teams of 4-5 people who have played matches like these for years, and will cut through anything.

Here is a video of an excellent F2F round: You can see the amount of teamwork, personal skill, tactics and coordination is involved, to make for a thrilling set of matches.

Join in! We can play this tournament properly with 16 people or more. GOGOGO

me too. I started playing again recently, but it's not the same. I basically play it for "relax" rather than trying to win the game. I help the team but not really going in the action.

cunin do you play in jelly mara or coop? What name?

im often in mara and again, its more for fun these days. But i still like to get angry an noobs and tell them what to do. Some take it as constructive critism and actually improve.... others just send hate pm's. Win some you lose some :P
il never not be trying pretty hard to win, altho im more likely these days to just sit killing basics with a sak than buying a tank :D

if play in f2f if it got going

mara, and yes it's like you said about newbs. There's so many people used to other servers with a mine limit of 128 and then they come there and start overmining every building, then starting it all over again because they see mines has gone from a building, without realizing that they're overmining themselves. That's just one of the many things happening, and telling them almost never works because most thinks to know the game very well, or some don't even read what you type, so I don't usually do anything that can get ruined by them (mining is one blatant example, but not the only one).

I usually start by hottie/tech to repair tanks, then after I die like 5 times in a row because most of them can't understand that you have to protect your tech, so don't even mind about killing inf around you and just keep whoring, I buy a sniper and go have some selfish fun.

It's all really like that now. Whenever I see some teamwork going in my team then I try doing my part, otherwise I just play it like it was a single player game :)
