Looking for the #MLUT community on IRC? The community has finally abandoned the ancient relay chat conversation for Discord. For those who are unaware, Discord is a TS/IRC hybrid with an intuitive interface on all platforms. You can connect through the browser, but we recommend that you download the app.



MLUT has converted into the old school UT99 pug channel established back in 2003 known as #dopepugs. Get your Discord invite by visiting: www.dopepugs.com

Also, here's a few community videos to get you pumped up for the next MLCTF revival season.





MLCTF 2017, coming soon?

the comeback should be 3v3 format, in my opinion

I don't see it happening. It was easy to blame sly's tantrums and implosions on the failure of the last mlut revival (just over a year ago) but the true problem was lack of real interest from participants. What has changed since then?

Maybe if someone like m3ss was leading the charge this could gain some traction, but short of that it's not worth getting your hopes up for. UT be dead.

This just looks like sly trying to co-opt defunct UT brands (mlut, dopepugs) to feed his ego needs.

This man has valid points.

lolol - come to dopepugs, I'll give you admin.

Also, there were 3 reasons for last MLUT failure.

1) Bretzky/n1ne/creek were purposely being complicated. A taste of my own medicine? Perhaps. Though, in a 16 year old game, maybe they should have waited until the draft was complete before being total shits.

2) Epic Games released an open "Pre-Alpha" (UT3 with some setting changes), giving everyone false hope that a new generation of pro gaming arena madness was ahead of us (false hope).

3) Cafe (who was given admin #MLUT for last season) opened #UT4pugs to feed the naive players the same false hope that Epic games fed to him. This split an already struggling community in half, making it impossible to succeed.

With that said, UT4 has proven to be a major disaster and everyone can now agree on that. This alone would be able to potentially unify a community. If enough people hop onto discord, who knows, a single elimination tournament could be in the future.

Lastly, dopepugs is just a gaming community (ut99/2k4 players) hanging out in an IRC-like platform that wasn't created in 1982.

Let the trolls unleash...

Fair enough. I mean your analysis of the last mlut is only half true, but I can support someone trying to maintain a chat-place where ut veterans can hang out. I'll come when the pugs start and I won't need admin.

I still think a tournament is a stretch.

I dont recall being complicated. I recall that I drafted a team where all my starters showed up though.

What are you talking about? I'm pretty sure you mocked my team that I drafted, yet, my team was the only one to have 5 players show up.

That was the previous season.

What? I think you're confused. The last MLUT 5v5 Season I was in, I drafted blackmane, Porsche, Paetulik and someone else. I dont know what season you're talking about that never completed a draft.

The last one died at the draft. No match were played.

n1ne is right. His team did show up to play a match that was scheduled against nomike and got a forfeit but the tournament was pretty much dead by then.

One match actually got played before the tourney collapsed. Cooltown and company took down a team with met, dray, and slayer in a pretty good match. I think I have the demo somewhere... last mlut match ever!

I'm pretty sure there are some with the delusion that it died at the draft, but that was because they were big fat babies and complained about how other captains were drafting. Its kind of coming back to me now, sLY is the one who left the draft because he thought I drafted a shit team that wouldn't show up.

I'm down! I'll play. I can donate some money too for a prize pool.

Ah, that's right. After draft disaster, I passed it over to you guys. I completely forgot an attempt was even made to solve that.

My draft idea was ridiculed by bretzky/n1ne/etc... but it was designed to be dummy proof with the game being in such a fragile state.

http://mlut.net/draft/

Each captain had to pick one person from each group. This would have guaranteed a reliable/active team so players like n1ne wouldn't have a team of no shows.

Too bad they were baby childs =(

Anyway, hop on Discord. We play RUST now. Smile

And the team I drafted was proof that I didnt need my hand held while drafting. My top 5 showed up at match day.

Do you want to apologize? Because that was rude. /Serena

Fair enough, but this would have ensured that all 8-12 teams would have showed up. Smile

come to dopepugs, n1ne.
