Welcome to humanity’s last stand. Well, that’s what we have planned this week, anyway.
The first multiplayer competition to kick off our autumnal schedule is Resistance 3, and we’ve got a great set of prizes to go along with it.[drop2]SCEE has very generously provided us with five Resistance 3 T-shirts, for the top 3 players, and two won by random in the rest of the field.
Peter’s also got in on the prize giving act with a copy of Resistance: A Hole in the Sky for the overall winner, the novel that bridges the gap between the second and third games fleshing out the story and the universe.
Are you ready for some bullet points?
- The competition itself takes place at 8PM BST on Saturday 8th October. There will be 10 minutes to gather in the lobby before the first round starts at 8:10PM.
- There are 16 spaces in the match, including myself as host and moderator. My PSN ID is teflon6678.
- There will be three 10 minute long rounds: Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and a final Deathmatch. On randomised maps.
- The overall winner will be the person with the highest points across all three rounds.
- In the interests of balance, I will be removing the following weapons: the Cryogun, the Wildfire and the Atomizer. They will not be usable.
- I will also be turning off the Berserks as the Humans and Chimera have a different ability after 3 kills, and I want the playing field to be level.
- All that you have to do to enter is send an email entitled “I wanna join the Resistance!” including your PSN and TSA ID to [email protected] by 11PM BST on Thursday 6th October.
- The full entry list and roster will be posted on Friday 7th October. Teams will be organised on Saturday.
- T-shirts are only winnable by UK entrants, but the novel is winnable by EU entrants too. The more the merrier!
- The normal terms and conditions apply.
So there we go! Any questions? Feel free to ask in the Resistance 3 meet forum thread. Armoury to your left, and then down the corridor to the practice range. Get a few hours in and you’ll be able to handle yourself, no problem.
My particular load out? Personally I have an upgraded Marksman or Bullseye, Hedgehog grenade, and the Spotter and Dash abilities.
Oh, and whilst you’re still here, we have a Resistance 3 meet every Thursday for a couple hours from 7PM. Don’t fret if you can’t turn up at 7 on the dot we’re more than happy to replenish and bolster our forces as we go along.
