    In a nutshell:

    There was an hour long pregame
    First round on ns_origin began
    Exigent lost many high life forms due to comcast
    They would freeze for about 5 seconds every 30-40 seconds
    This was on four of their players
    Comcast sucks
    Exigent lost
    CAL Refused to allow a reschedule due to rules (I think, that or terror just didn't want to because of real life issues or whatever and whatnot)
    Exigent wanted only to play, but didn't want to play on an unfair field due to their extreme lag issues
    Terror wanted only to play, but it was getting extremely late for some of them who had to wake up for work or whatnot the next day because most of them are EST
    It was about midnight (EST) when the ruling was decided that exigent forfeits
    They play one grudge half where exigent wins their marine half
    Exigent quits CAL

    All this took about 4-5 hours to complete for 1 half of actual gameplay.
    Spectators reached about 300 I was told

    If Exigent had an issue regarding the server used during the 1st half of play, why were they not allowed to switch servers in accordance with CAL's rules?
    QUOTE
    You will be allowed to have one half of each match on a server provided by each team.

    They have very understandable reasoning. Would you want to be in a league with admins unable to make human decisions, and is just doing everything according to whats been written down? (I think those were pretty close to the words of Pain User) Thus causing no reschedule and a forfeit.

    It wasnt just a single server issue, they were lagging on several servers, space moogle said he called comcast and they were doing some maint or something. So it was out of both teams control. We could not play the second half of origin on another server for some reason, they wanted us to have a comm that freezes during crucial times and several of our best shots that also had teh same problem. It wasnt a fair playing field and CAL did nothing about it.

    Can't check CAL right now, but if Exigent did quit then that would totally rock competitive play in the face.

    QFT

    Who do these referees think they are? Being unwilling to budge from the rules that some geek has spent a few days making up (at the end of the day- 1 map, no cheating, hf.).

    I mean it's just an amateur video game league, right?!

    This is possibly the nail in NS's coffin; I hope that the US scene doesn't decline to the same level as our EU scene.

    We started the game and our players started freezing for 5-10 seconds every ~45 seconds as someone above me said (this is clearly visible, and I'll record a movie of me almost getting LMG solo'd as Fade while I'm frozen, if you want)... We played through the round, fine. It sucks but that's how it is. At this point we knew we couldn't play any more on this server so we asked to switch servers. Some servers were doing it, others weren't (in particular, LoC's private server that we played the 2nd half of the origin game wasn't lagging). The admins said our only options were to play the 2nd half on this lagging server or forfeit our marine half of origin, giving Terror a 2-0. Obviously, this isn't a very fair playing field. All we wanted to do was to move to a server that wasn't freezing for 2/3s of our team. Terror and the admins wouldn't allow this... We offered to reschedule and they said no, and they took the forfeit win. After that we played our 2nd half of the Origin game on LoC's private (thanks guys) and won our marine half, so the 'real' game ended up a 1-1 tie.


    I don't see how anyone can say we're being unreasonable, all we wanted was a server switch with the score still at 1-0 in favor of Terror, or a reschedule, so we could have connections that didn't freeze. I want to make this very clear: The only options offered to us by CAL and Terror were:
    a) Play the 2nd half of Origin on the same laggy server
    b) Forfeit the 2nd half of Origin and go to a non-laggy server for veil with Terror having a 2-0 advantadge
    c) Forfeit completely


    It's really a shame... And note that switching servers while keeping the Terror 1-0 lead would've only taken 5 to 10 minutes, I don't see how anyone can claim that it would keep them up too late? I mean we were switching servers anyway after the 2nd origin half...
