COOPERATION

Mode: Cooperative
Builti-in Score System:
Objective: Make your way through a series of levels, shooting badguys along the way.
Rules:
Scoring:
Irregularities: Same as Singlem but you need one piece of internet connection available. Due to a bug, those, who join, are invincible. Host isn’t. Cheats sometimes crash the game, just as single player.


BATTLE



BATTLE

Mode: Battle
Builti-in Score System: YES
Objective: Kill other players, try not to get hit yourself.
Rules:
Scoring: Each roast gets you a point. When a player roasts enough rabbits the required amount of times, he wins, and the level switches.
Irregularities:

TIMED BATTLE

Mode: Battle
Builti-in Score System: YES
Objective: Roast as many as possible before the time limit is hit or someone hits 100 roasts.
Rules: Do not move or attack before host says start.
Scoring: Scoring is usually done by making roasts count as 1 point each. There may be a special bonus awarded if you win a round.
Irregularities: If you time out/crash/leave, you lose all your roasts.

CLASS-BASED BATTLE

Mode: Battle
Builti-in Score System: YES
Objective: At the beginning of the game, you will enter a room where you have to pick a certain ability or set of weapons you want to use. After that, you fight all the other players in a standard free for all battle. Points are the amount of roasts you get.
Rules: Don’t shoot until the host says start. You must select a class. No killing in the class selection room.
Scoring: Scoring is usually done by making roasts count as 1 point each. There may be a special bonus awarded if you win a round.
Irregularities: If you exit the server you lose your points. You must exit to change class.

LAST RABBIT STANDING (also knows as survivor)

Mode: Battle
Builti-in Score System: NOT REQUIRED
Objective: Be the last person in the arena. If roasted, you lose a life. If you lose all of your lives you are out.
Rules: No rejoining to regain lives or “breaking into the control room.”
Scoring: Last in gets 3 points, second to last 2 points, third to last 1 point.
Irregularities: If you time out, your lives will be equal to the server’s – 1. If you join a game in progress, you must wait for next game.

CYCLE BATTLE

Rules: No killing in line. No breaking into control room.
Scoring: One point for first roast, one point for second consecutive roast, 5 points for each roast beyond.
Irregularities: Best played as a smaller event (about 8 or less) as opposed to a big one. If you leave the server while in game you lose and go the the back of the line when you join. If you lose your place in line, you will be placed at the end of the line.

ROAST TAG

Mode: Battle
Builti-in Score System: NO
Objective: Kill whoever is “it” to become “it”. While you are “it”, kill other players to get points.
Rules: Do not move or attack before host says start.
Scoring: 1 point/roast when you are “it”, x points for killing whoever is “it”.
Irregularities: Best played as a smaller event (about 8 or less) as opposed to a big one. Extremely difficult to keep score, due to there being no means of doing it other than writing it down. The recorder usually isn’t able to play as a result, and they often won’t be able to chat either. To help keep things running, it’s a good idea to announce when you are “it”.

STREET FIGHT

Mode: Battle
Builti-in Score System: YES
Objective: Same as Battle.
Rules: If you find an area, where you can use ammo due to a bug, do NOT use it, or you will be kicked.

Jail CTF

Mode: CTF
Builti-in Score System: YES
Objective: Same as CTF, but if you die on the enemy base/side you go to jail, where you wait until you are automatically released or freed by a team member.

Rules: Follow the same rules as any other team based event.
Scoring: Usually something like 50 coins gets you 1 point, and every 25 after that gets another point. So 100 would be 3 points. It really varies by level though.

Replying here is still possibly, FYI, and is recommended. Things posted on J2O are fine to be discussed here, this is even recommended IMO.

NeoBlaze24 on May 30, 2004 06:00

PLEASE, DO NOT DISCUSS HERE, ONLY COMMENT.
DISCUSSION IS IN THIS TOPIC: http://www.jazz2online.com/jcf/showthread.php?p=226106

Violet CLM on May 31, 2004 06:00

Isn’t “Gladiator” a tournament type level, where eight or sixteen or something people compete for places in a ladder?

blurredd on June 01, 2004 06:00

The parts that annoyed me the most were where it says “also knows as,” which is misleading. Ground Force and Gladiators aren’t the same thing since players can’t shoot the ground in Gladiators and those two types of levels use different layouts. As for Survivor, I’ve said this before about my pack:

“I know they they are Ground Force levels (I forgot to credit ET for the concept, too). “Survivor” was originally suppose to be the name of the pack of Ground Force levels I made. But eventually, everyone started to call the concept Survivor and making “Survivor levels”. (I can’t help it if “Survivor” is more catchy than “Ground Force”). So technically, Survivor is the [25] Ground Force levels I made, not the name of ET’s concept.”

On a side note, my Survivor levels don’t have control rooms in them, so Survivor couldn’t possibly be considered Control Room Ground Force. And LRS definitely isn’t aka Survivor. Do I need to explain that one?

DanYjel on June 02, 2004 06:00

No offense, but isn’t it at JDC webpage?

NeoBlaze24 on June 06, 2004 06:00

>> No offense, but isn’t it at JDC webpage?

Take a closer look, and you will see that it is not.

<b>BlurreD</b>,
what is your definition of Survivor, then?

Violet CLM on June 07, 2004 06:00

I’m not sure if there is any gametype called Survivor. Craccoboy made “Survival”, and I’ve seen a few levels spoofing the “Survivor” TV show, but other than that…

the WINNER on June 11, 2004 06:00

n00bs think that Ground Force is Survivor

Green Plant on June 22, 2004 06:00

Yeh great, you just took info. from the JDC info. page and put it into your own words. What a lame waste of time

American on June 25, 2004 06:00

Survivor was the name of the pack; it was not the gametype. Survivor can be used to describe these levels ONLY if they are part of one of BlurredD’s Survivor packs. This is pretty much the standard rule.

NeoBlaze24 on June 29, 2004 06:00

<b>Yeh great, you just took info. from the JDC info. page and put it into your own words. What a lame waste of time</b>

Wrong! As I’ve said before, I’ve added my own stuff and made it organized. Maybe it was a waste of time, but while I was doing it, I learned what are all those game types :)

blurredd on June 30, 2004 06:00

You still didn’t fix everything in your article, like where you said LRS is the same as Survivor.

NeoBlaze24 on July 27, 2004 06:00

Yes I did.
LRS = ?

blurredd on July 28, 2004 06:00

You could say Last Rabbit Standing aka Last Man Standing, although that isn’t really necessary since you’ll only find Craccoboy and maybe a few others that only refer to it as LMS. Also, you might want to fix the “built-in” typo you made and to be more accurate with which game types have Built-in Scoring Systems. For example, Assassination and Bank Robbery both have one. But right now I’m not even sure what your definition of a Built-in Scoring System is. It probably would’ve helped if you played all of these types of levels before making an article about them.

NeoBlaze24 on December 06, 2004 00:23

Built-in Scoring System is when the Roast\\Flag\\Treasure counter actually automatically makes the correct score during the game.

blurredd on February 23, 2005 03:41

In that case, I\‘m sticking to what I said.

the WINNER on April 05, 2005 20:35

I just noticed that this IS straight copied from the JDC. Except for organizing it. You even have THE SAME SPELLING ERRORS as in the JDC page.

blurredd on April 17, 2005 04:46

And the worst part is NeoBlaze isn\‘t going to fix his article anytime soon.

TheKax on December 31, 2006 14:29

I\‘ve made a new game type:

Spring arena
mode: battle
built-in score system: yes
objective: Kill all enemies.
rules: Same as normal battle.
scoring: Each roast gives you one point.
irregularities: Battle is played in full of springs-arena

I\‘m working with large battle pack containing elewen Spring arenas.
named: Springs for spring.
