Captured and Tagged 4 Xmas!

It’s bad enough the economy is in the crapper but it’s about to get fubar-ed.  The global financial crisis has caused Santa to worry so much about the kids that he has gone insane and is about to lay an enormous turd on all of us for Christmas.

Bad Santa... Fire in the hole!

So what’s a gamer supposed to do?  Easy… fire up OpenArena and open a can of whoopass on Bad Santa and his Evil Elves.

Bad Santa and Evil Elves... Your bad day just got worse, NancyBoy!

While gaming, please do not adjust your monitor.  The constant red shift that you will experience is your sorry ass exploding over and over again.

We understand if you would rather suck your thumb, wear your favorite brown diaper, and watch Reality TV.  So we ask only the brave to come share in the fun.  Season Greetings to all.

Server:  FragFest – Captured and Tagged 4 Xmas!

This New York, USA, based server will be created a few days before the event so make sure you have the maps and know what they look like.  Players in the UK and the Netherlands can expect a ping between 90ms and 110ms.  Players in Germany can expect a ping of 120+ms.  The server is unlagged and pmove_accurate is enabled to make the action fair to high pingers.

PLAYER SLOTS: 64 Total, 32 spec and 32 players.  Some maps will have entity files to add additional spawn points, health, armor and items.  E+ is a fair Mod, players spawn with the same weapons and the same amount of ammo.
