It would be nice to see CoD4 added to the league and play clan battles thru Gameranger Smiley  I think *NRG and [a] are the only 2 clans on Gameranger that actually have enough players with the game to clan battle.

Of course the *DBL won't start with only old games like GhR and RvS. CoD4 is a must have and I also would like to offer all games people want to play competitively.

PC players are more than welcome.

@ BFG: Of course the release is late, very late, however I think there is still a demand for true challenges and clanbattles. I also hope that PC players will like the familiar host setup in GameRanger.

What I have seen so far from CoD4 is that there are also very small maps(e.g. Killhouse) that could be used for a CQB ladder with only 2vs2 or 3vs3 but of course CoD4 is best played with at least 6vs6 up to 12vs.12

There's a GHR PC League over at www.ghostleague.net.  They have 20 clans participating in Season 2 which begins 1st week of January.  A lot of players from Gameranger are joining together to form a *GR* roster to compete in the league.  We're trying to get as many players as possible.  Maybe we should ask them to come over and join the DBL for Ghr Clan Battles.

Just look at www.ghostleague.net on the right side, they have 20 clans for season 2. lol.  *GR* is the Gameranger clan.  I hope we win.  All CBs are pre-scheduled and 5 vs 5 minimum.

Good luck with team *GR*, PUNiSHER!  Feels great to see some old school GhR competition going on.  Wish I had the time to join in on the fun.  Kick some butt in the league!   Uzi

Alright back from my grandmom where internet access is a fremdwort(yes there are still some and it feels great).

During the holidays I got a lot of things done. More about that later.

For the GhR League thing - that's cool. 20 clans are a lot. As soon as the *DBL is ready to go I hope to see some playing here too, but right now it is too early(not that too early, just a bit too early) to invite anyone.

@ Bonz: all games are welcome, as long as enough people are around and some people have good ideas for rules, etc.

Cya later,

Mauti
ps.: fremdwort == foreign word

Good to see *DBl 2.0 back on track.

I'd love to play GhR again and see those PC teams play by the *dbl rule set. Wink
However, I can't imagine playing more recent games through GameRanger. You just can't host CoD4 or CS:S on a private line and get a good performance. I can only see the *DBL becoming a successful multigaming platform without GameRanger. From a PC players point of view GR is more or less a fancy IRC Client that can only connect to one server and has no private channels. But the truth is, GR cannot compete with IRC. IRC has too many handy features and is too popular anyway. People won't want to host their own games, leaving GhR, AoE and RvS aside, and won't want to use a totally unkown application to get their CWs.

The *DBL will be for Macs and PC and every platform where the demand is high enough.

I think GameRanger is still a good and useful thing and should be supported but it won't be a must use. At all I think it is much better for gaming than any IRC client but I haven't tried out the PC version yet. However I also want to add a few web based communication features directly on the *DBL page. So you can leave IP addresses for clanmates, etc.

About hosting: I think that completely depends on the game, e.g. hosting a 2vs2 Cod4 CQB cb should be no problem, but of course everyone gonna prefer a good dedicated host.

This is very good news.
You can add V to the COD4 clans, we are working on to be more active and you will see us more on gameranger from now on.

I do agree with Tin though, and there is still a lot of advertising to do. Maybe we could ask Evill to put up a banner on gameranger, so people would enter the site and check it out.

Thanks for your work Mauti.
