New Support Site

TPG has a new and improved Support Site and we will start using it today. This new Support System is more powerful and offers more features for the Admins and AC Admins. You must be logged into your TPG Account before it will allow you to view the support site. If you are not logged in, it will redirect you to the TPG website until it verify's your credentials. We've also made it so that it pre-fills some of your information from the TPG database and we will continue to add more to this as time goes on. 

All support tickets should be filed through the following link from now on:

TPG Forums

TPG would like to Thank You all for what we saw as a successful 32nd Regular Season of Day of Defeat. We have seen teams drop from competition as they usually do, but we also saw less forfeits and more competitive matches throughout the weeks in all Divisions. With Playoffs upcoming, we have begun to look beyond S32 Playoffs and towards the improvements we can implement to make the 33rd Season of TPG more enjoyable for all levels of competition.

During Season 32, the Admins used a forum to stay organized and on top of evolving situations and as I mentioned at the start of Season 32, the community’s role would be expanding more for Season 33. We have decided to open these forums up to the community in order to better communicate and take in player suggestions towards league improvement. This will not only help keep TPG in touch with the community, but also to get the community more involved in TPG related decisions. We believe that these forums, full of active, vocal members of the community will help TPG improve all aspects of this league. 

On behalf of everyone at TPG, I would like to invite you all to participate in these discussions as it will impact your future experience with TPG. Joeledmunds brought up a discussion of Season 33’s map rotation list and we figured it was time to start our official TPG discussion and vote on such issues. We encourage everyone to participate in the discussions and we also recommend that users feel free to start new discussions on anything else related to TPG as well. Whether it pertains to Season 33 or to TPG in general, I encourage you to post your thoughts.

TPG Servers

Yesterday the server hosting TPG's database went down due to some bad hardware.  Temporarily we have switched the database to a new server to get the site up and running.  You may notice the site is significantly slower.  Hopefully this will only be temporary as we work on a more permanent fix.  Thank you for your patience.

Watch out for Gameservers!

I just wanted to forewarn everyone that Gameservers insisted on screwing me on my DOD server.  I bought a DOD private server awhile back for a 6 month period of time and recently they decided to bill me for another 6 month period automatically without warning or asking me.  They cited some line buried deep in their service agreement that allows them to automatically renew my server subscription and bill me if I do not explicitly contact them with a support ticket and request that they do not do this.  Every other transaction I've had with them was emailed to me, but this magic auto-renew I was not emailed about the coming renewal or when it occurred.

So if you have a current server with them that you may one day cancel in the future be aware of this.  Also, I would not recommend doing business with a company that does shady things like this and then informs me that it is "impossible" to give me a refund on what they billed to my credit card (per Brendan Kiel of Gameservers support).

Gaming Mice from SteelSeries

As you know we recently announced the 2 new SteelSeries Ikari mice.

 

As a follow-up on the release we decided to write a background article on why we decided to enter the mouse market and also to reveal and explain some crucial facts about current claims from mice manufacturers, about their “gaming mice” being produced and optimized directly for gaming.

 

We claim that the Ikari mice are the first ever to be 100% optimized for gaming.

 

A couple of previews from the article: “Another problem with today’s laser mice is that they function using image correlation. Meaning that the sensor snaps pictures of the surface, then compares these pictures to determine the movement of the mouse. If the user performs an “advanced movement”, which can include sudden deceleration, mouse movements at a certain angle or something else weird, that couldn’t be programmed into the robotic testing machines, the mouse will either stall or try to “guess” the intended movement. This is not what we consider “gaming grade”. A gamer requires precision and accuracy from his gaming gear – not software that tries to predict and emulate his intended movements. If these “gaming laser mice” had been tested by professional gamers before their release, the test results would have clearly indicated that they weren’t suitable for high level gaming….”  

“When a company mentions DPI in the same sentence as precision, or anything else regarding better tracking, it is simply bullshit. First of all the term DPI (Dots Per Inch) has nothing to do with mice. It’s an expression from the printing world and shouldn’t even be used to describe mouse movement. DPI is meant to describe the fact that for one inch of distance you move your mouse on any surface, the equivalent number of counts are sent to the PC - resulting in movement on your screen. The correct term for this is CPI (counts per inch). You can achieve higher CPI in many ways: By having a larger image, higher sampling rate, better light source quality, adding DSP (Digital Signal Processor) power and having the right algorithm (prediction)….”

Adding the gaming mice line compliments an existing portfolio of professional gaming gear that consists of headsets, keyboards, surfaces, accessories and security software designed for competitive gamers.

SteelSeries Announces World's First Circumaural Professional Gaming Neckband Headset

Copenhagen, Denmark - July 10th, 2007 -- SteelSeries, a leading manufacturer of innovative professional gaming gear, today announced the SteelSeries Siberia Neckband Headset, the first circumaural neckband headset created for professional gaming. The new professional gaming headset is optimized for use with personal computers while offering "street-style" functionality for use with MP3-players and other digital devices. 

The original Siberia Full-Size Headset was released in late 2004 and instantly became a smash-hit among leading professional gamers. The product was the first professional gaming headset to fully cover the users' ears, adding new levels of comfort to audio products for gamers. 

The new SteelSeries Siberia Neckband Headset features a similar eye-catching visual design, as well as the popular white theme, that made the original Siberia headset so popular. Professional gamers from a number of major international gaming organizations took part in the development and fine-tuning of the product, including some of biggest names in eSports: SK Gaming, Team 3D and compLexity. This is the first Siberia-product to feature the trademark pull-out microphone system found in most other gaming headsets from SteelSeries. 

The comfort and soundscape in the SteelSeries Siberia Neckband Headset was fine-tuned with the help of professional gamers, electronic DJ's and rock musicians. The combined input and feedback from this broad range of picky audiophiles helped create a soundscape optimized for a multitude of uses. Final sound optimizations for gaming were done with the help of Abdisamad 'SpawN' Mohamed, one of the world's most accomplished Counter-Strike players with 12 major international grand-slam championship titles and "Best of Class" awards by leading eSport sites in 2004, 2005 and 2006. 

The new open-type SteelSeries Siberia Neckband Headset is compact and lightweight, while fully covering the user's ears. The result is a product that is both comfortable and firm to wear. As the headset is placed around the users' neck the user can wear hats or other garments without problems. 

                        "The original Siberia headsets are still enormously popular, so trying to create the same unique combination of sound quality and visual design was extremely important to us," says Kim Rom, Marketing Director for SteelSeries. "The final result is a headset that breaks new ground for gaming accessories, just as the original headset did. This time it not only sounds even better, it also maintains the same low price point as the original."  

           "It was a lot of fun to help develop a gaming product that offers quality sound, and doesn't mess up a hairstyle or get in the way when you wear a cap," says Abdisamad 'SpawN' Mohamed, Counter-Strike player for SK Gaming. "Being able to use the same product for both gaming and my iPod is a nice feature, I'm looking forward to the release of this baby."  

The new SteelSeries Siberia Neckband Headset will be released in Q3 2007, pricing details to be announced.
