Watch this game get played by the best.
Hi everyone. As you might have seen on the front page, CAL-Finals are this weekend. If you really love ns, you should tune in on HLTV to watch them. This will be an amazing show, and it will feature the absolute best ns players playing their hardest.

CAL-NS is split into 2 Divisions. Delta and Omega. Omega is the lower league that anybody can get 6 people together and join. Delta is the invite league, with the absolute best players and teams.

The Delta Finals between Terror and Exigent will be played on Sunday, April 3rd, at 8:30 pm eastern, 5:30 pm pacific. You can watch it by starting NS as normal and typing "connect hltv.isogames.com:27020" in your console.

The Omega finals between Lords of Chaos and Console are Saturday April 2nd, at 10pm est, 7 pm pst. You can watch that by typing "connect 69.93.145.214:27020" in your console.

Some general HLTV tips: To turn off auto director, press 'a'. Press your jump key to switch perspectives, and press your left and right keys to switch between players.

The best players to watch, (besides everyone from all 4 teams because all these guys are amazing) are:
[t]Mustang
Exi. JmmsBnd007
{LoC}N I R V A N A N A N A
`GoD

If Mustang or Jmms, lose their fade, the custom is to laugh and then say "OMG Jmms/Mustang DOWN!!!!!1"

Nirvana is an amazing lerk, one of the best in the game and GoD is considered the best player in omega.

Check out the CAL website at www.caleague.com/?division=nso to read the format of the rounds/maps. You might also want to download ns_orbital_cal from http://www.caleague.com/?page=files because the omega finals will be played on this map for at least one round.

One last thing is that if you see someone talking named Flayra, its not really Flayra.

Enjoy, these will be excellant games.

    As an ampednews dued, you're right on time. smile-fix.gif

    Terror and Exi did square off last time, so this time.. it should be pretty fun to see the outcome. I saw the last finals game and I've been watching both teams and others avidly since. It'll be fun to hopefully see everyone else on the HLTV proxy, because watching these things is absolutley AMAZING.

    Theres no better word, if you cuddle up with a bowl of Ice Cream, and get your CALNS matches going.. theres no better bliss.

    I hope to see everyone there. And most likely, NSRadio will cover pre-game stuff, but I don't know yet, thats all how the cool people who run it decide. :o

    Seeing as Sensory wins/first uses have taken about a 40% rise, I dont doubt we'll see some good use of Sens in these matches.

    My legs are quivering because these matches are coming up, it'll be good to see {LoC}Scout again, that is if he's still in there. :o

    {LoC}Scout is a myth, he only plays on NSArmslab now.

    Is there any way i can download or watch any of the old matches? Also where do we go to watch this (link)
  • NinjaloNinjalo Join Date: 2005-01-09 Member: 33969Members Posts: 1
    Ok, look, {LoC}scout is NOTHING to us. He never scrims with us, he acts like a **** and makes us look bad, and he the only thing he does is play on nubslab.

    As far as I'm concerned, I would rather forfeit than have scout play with us in finals.

    Okay. Well, he may not be much of an LoCer.. Uhm, but I know in the past I've played on 'nubslab' and enjoyed a few games with him.. so, I guess nevermind? :o

    I'm in Delta, so this statement isn't exactly true. Some players are just riding the coat-tails of others tounge.gif

    Yes, both games will be quite entertaining to watch so do join and check it out.

    terror is the only team that is repeating a finals appearance. exi historically is usually in finals though. A lot of people are excited to see LoC in finals.

    And i predict that at least 2 fades will die through a trigger_hurt.

    Anyone who can predict the exact number of fades that will die through a trigger_hurt gets "real" cookie tounge.gif

    The only similarity to Ground Control is that instead of arriving from a building, your dudes arrive from the sky. Why does that merit a meh?

    It would be really great to see the NS community participate by watching the final matches this weekend. These guys have worked really hard to get this far, and deserve alot of credit.

    Digz is right, if you've never seen a competitive match, you NEED to tune in. You wont believe how awesome NS is when its played by these guys at such a high level of organization and skill.

    Shame it will be 3.30AM around here...... Hell with it im watching it anyway.
    I think that exi should win(if they have adj playing:P) but still see mustang pwning them, hope that there wont be some idiotic trigger_hurt fades... they "kinda" ruin it
