No I am not kidding. I have been working on the new gamemode for our servers and it is almost ready for closed beta.


What does that mean, closed beta?

A select group of individuals (community members) will have access to the server. Only active members of our community are eligible. To enter, simply send me a PM on the forums (please do not ask me through Steam) or reply to this thread. Please make sure that your steamid is linked to your forum account.


So what is the gamemode about?

If you have played the Team Fortress 2 dodgeball before, you know what to expect. If you haven't, I'll go over the key features real quick:

  • 2 teams, Red and Blue
  • 1 weapon for each player: a TF2 flamethrower used to airblast incoming projectiles (primary fire is disabled). With this, you can deflect rockets and nukes but also airblast enemies.
  • 1 winning team; the last standing player's team wins!
Basically, on each map there is at least one rocket spawner. They shoot rockets are a random target after a certain amount of time. If the rocket is coming for you, you shouldn't bother running. Instead, use your flamethrower's secondary ability (right click) to airblast the rocket away from you and forcing it to look for a new target (of the enemy team). If the rocket explodes on you, it hurts (deeerp).


Sounds great, when can I play?

Soon. I will try to get the server up and running this evening but do not rip my head off I have to delay it by a few hours. I will announce the start of the beta on our community group page.

Since i do not play GMod anymore I have donated my items to Master Mark's museum. Please feel free to check it out here.

I will try to visit this server every now and then but thanks for all the fun you guys have brought me :)

How's the gamemode going? Do you have an ETA of when it's coming out?

I don't think we have a ETA, but it'll come, I hope (;
