Gamenight: S4Max Edition
What is it?
S4 League is a weaboo arena third-person-shooter with gimmicks. Mechanics are fairly straightforward run, jump, and shoot.
Download & Mirror:
The game is pretty small, 2 and a half gigs so it shouldn't be to painful to download.
Hostfag will respond in the vch.moe thread with a room name and password.
Saturday and Sunday we'll be running during the entire day, so don't forget to show up as well.
How to set up:
Just run the executable and it'll do its thing. Once you're in you can choose a username and password and then you'll be set.
See pic related for a guide on what to equip. Play some tutorials, there's one general tutorial (on the lobby page), and a tutorial for each weapon class (in the shop).
How do I play it:
The only unusual mechanic is wall jumping. It's essential for moving quickly, and you'll get used to it from practice. It works by leaping toward a wall and then turning your screen in the direction you want to jump.
There are also skills you can get such as a wall to block incoming fire, wings, a sweet grappling hook that others will call you a scrub for and some other stuff. There are also a few different weapon classes like shotguns, melee weapons with different properties, and healing guns. After you get the basics try some other guns out to see what you like.
There are three specific game modes that we'll be playing:
>Battle Royale: Just kill people.
>Deathmatch: Just kill people but ignore half of them.
>Touchdown: The real game. Sportsball with guns.
The rules for touchdown aren't too complicated, it's just like an ordinary sport with a ball and a goal.
Here's a handy set of instructions for what you should be doing.
Guide to Offense:
>Step 1: Get the ball.
>Step 2: Run behind enemy lines.
>Step 3: Don't get killed. (Otherwise goto 1)
Step 4: Score in the opponent's goal.
Guide to Defense:
>Step 1. Just kill people.
But specifically kill the person who has the ball.
They will have a giant beam of light over their head.
Use that to keep an eye on how much of a threat they are.
