Although L4D Outbreak was scheduled to be played over a two-day period (10 October to 11 October), the tournament could be completed within a day as there were only six teams taking part.

Also, all matches were played on the new Crash Course campaign. This meant that each game could be completed much faster than the other four versus campaigns (No Mercy, Death Toll, Dead Air, Blood Harvest).

Damien “eCon” Seetoh, the youngest member of wH.mTx, had this to say about the competition: “It was a fun competition because we were able to land a 3+1 on Avant Garde”.

wH.mTx won the finals after a successful 3 Hunters + 1 Smoker assault on AG’s Survivors. wH.mTx were leading by about 2,000 points after their Survivors managed to escape the Crash Course finale with a +186 health bonus.

AG needed a health bonus of 190 and above when it was their turn to play as the Survivors, in order to cancel out wH.mTx’s lead and win the match. Unfortunately, an amazingly well-coordinated 3+1 attack by wH.mTx ended the match early before AG could reach the finale portion.

Dave “insi9nia” Yan, a member of Avant Garde, said he was quite pleased with his team’s second-place finish at the competition.

“We only had one day to practice on the Crash Course campaign the day before the competition,” he said. “Our team had to rely on pure skills to win rather than knowledge of the map”.

Second runners-up Out To Kill were made up of members from Trying To Survive [TTS], the team that took second place in Operation Blackstorm.

Leslie “Chubbs” Tan, team leader of OTK, said his team’s performance in the competition was “okay”, although he cited his concerns about the delays caused during the matches due to hardware instabilities.

The computers used for the competition in the LAN shop were plagued with some major latency problems, causing several players to disconnect during matches. The semi-final match between TeC and AG had to be restarted once because the server host’s LAN connection was disrupted.

Did I mention that was the best damn 3+1 I’ve ever seen by wH.mTx? Too bad there was no recorded demo of the final match.

Have your say. Add your comments:

    I didn’t have a chance to say hi to you X( Oh well, HAI!

    But yeah, I agree that the place was pretty bad in terms of the latencies.

  • Glimmerous.Fop

    Talked to Darren, the organizer of the competition. Unfortunately, he didn’t save any recorded demos of the matches at L4D Outbreak.

    The memory of the best 3+1 in L4D history will live on in Fop’s head, plus the members who played for wH.mTx and AG.

  • MayaArcana

    And mine! =X But yeah, that 3+1 was awesome.

  • Maddcap

    you saw it? :O

  • MayaArcana

    Yeah. I was watching the AG ppl outside, and when I saw the smoker grab, and the 2 hunters pouncing, I was like “OHHHH SHHHHHEEET, THISA GONNA BE GUD”

    And then it was over in a blink of an eye. I think Jelly missed it or something. X(

  • Matafleur

    You should draw a diagram of what happened! 😮

  • insignia

    fops, i have demos. they still in the lanshop.

  • MayaArcana

    My memory is bad. Couldn’t really remember much except I was watching Muse’s screen, I think, and suddenly he got pulled by smoker, and the 2 ppl in front of him got pounced on…or something like that.

  • Glimmerous.Fop

    @insi9nia

    Ya but, nobody to retrieve them.

  • Fytalia

    Heya guys, Darren here. The computers at the Lan shop had their main files hidden in a mysterious X drive which no one knew how to access.. Not even the employee there knew about it XD

    So yea, it was hard to record demos. Do email any improvements and suggestions to me at [email protected]

    Promotions for pre-order for l4d2 are out! grab copies of them now!
