It gives me great pleasure to announce that the |DPG| 13 year anniversary event will be taking place on Saturday, February 28th @ 1:00 PM EST / 12:00 PM Noon CST / 11:00 AM MST / 10:00 AM PST. All |DPG|, regulars, and friends of our community are invited
, unless you are on some kind of **** list.
The game we will be playing is MW2
. Why MW2? Well because MW2 is actually pretty darn fun and because we need to play something different than just CoD4, that's why!!! 'But, Maximus, MW2 has no dedicated server support, so what are you thinking?!'
I have some news for you, MW2 actually has dedicated server support again. Remember Four Delta One? Well, a new group came aboard, so lets enjoy the dedicated servers while they last.
'But, Maximus, I don't have the game. What do I do? I am broke and its not in my budget right now.' No problem!!! You can get it for free!!! Go to https://repziw4.de/ and click on the right side of the page that says: "Register now!"
From here if you are in |DPG| please make your name |DPG|YourName
Make sure you put no spaces. Literally this will be the exact same way you do your name for CoD4. If you come into the server and your name is |DPG| YourName with the space, you automatically forfeit your raffle ticket for a prize...
After you are registered, click on the "Downloads" link
towards the top of the Repz site. From here go towards the bottom of the page where it says "Automated Installation"
. From here click on "Repz Installer" and after you save the setup.exe
. Once you have saved the setup.exe open it up. From here there will be a video will start up. From here click on the bottom middle part of the screen that you see and click on "Select a Language"
. Select English and then it will ask you to "Select a game"
. The game to select is "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2"
. From here it will give you a default installation directory. Choose to install it there only if you don't have this game already installed. If you have this game already installed then obviously select a different install directory...
Now whether you own this game on Steam or not, you will still need all the DLC
for it. So make sure you check everything you see
. From here it will start downloading the base game, then the DLC, and then the camo stuff.
After everything is downloaded and installed, you will be able to start up the game and the next thing that will happen is that it will prompt you for your username and pw
Your username for example will be:
and your password is whatever you set it to be on the Repz site
From here the game will start up and all you will have to do from there is set your graphics, sound, and controls up the way you want.
*Note that you can actually install MW3 as well as BlackOps as well if you want. Completely free, but for this tournament all you need is MW2...*
To find our server you can them one of two ways.
One way is through the in game browser or on gametracker. We have 3 servers. They are the following:
0 24/7 Hardcore TDM No GL/Marty thadpg.com 220.127.116.11:26001
|DPG| ProMod Pub Server thadpg.com 18.104.22.168:26003 http://www.gametracker.com/server_in...232.198:26003/
|DPG| Private ProMod Server thadpg.com 22.214.171.124:26002 http://www.gametracker.com/server_in...232.198:26002/
The private ProMod server is password protected. Info on that will be in the |DPG| Private forums.
It would be nice if we had 40 people show up to this or more, but realistically, we may only have 20 or so. Teams will either be 5v5 or 4v4, but preferably 5v5.
This year, unlike previous years, we will start promptly at the times listed above. If you show up late, I cannot guarantee that you will be on a team or able to participate. Also, unlike previous years, I will be helping people for hours on end trying to install stuff beforehand. Literally you have a day short of 3 weeks to get this all installed. If you need help, I can help you as well as other members of |DPG| leadership. However, I will not be helping anyone the day of the event. So please, PLEASE if you still need help, ask for help within that time frame.
This will be setup as a competitive tournament. I am hoping that @Bojangles
can participate by doing shoutcasting, but also participate as in playing on a team when his team is playing, but this is entirely up to him.
There will be a total of 55 prizes to be given away by me. This could go up and possibly go down a little by that time, but still either way there will be plenty of prizes to be given away. If you are part of leadership, please don't give out what they are.
Just like last year, first dibs on prizes will be given out to the team who wins the 13 year anniversary MW2 tournament.
Last, I hope this Repz thing stays around for a long time and doesn't get shut down by Activision, it would be nice if you all ended up really liking MW2 again and played actively on our servers. Believe it or not our MW2 HC TDM server actually gets a decent amount of traffic so I hope to see plenty of you install MW2 here soon so we can pub it up, or even scrim on one of our 3 servers!!!
Happy be-lated 13th anniversary to |DPG| and our community!!! Long live |DPG|!!!
