Some very tough missions and you handled it brilliantly - you are the Elite Ghosts.

Thanks to everyone who joined in the Tourney - it made the hours of scripting all worthwhile.

Special thanks goes to the following people -

Rocky for hosting - Lancer for the beautifully textured Winter Maps - [AS]Bughler for beta-testing and advice - Jay and CentCom for reticules, vehicles and objects - BlackOps for vehicles - CallMeHobbes for tank winter textures - the legend that is [AS]Chavez for rapel sounds - Tinker, Thales, Wytchdokta, and all the other modders who offered advice and inspired me to script. Thankyou...... :clapping:

Congratulations to the winners of this brilliant tourney. Gr8 effort on some very challenging missions, where you where left alone with no team members to help you through.

Thanx to the ppl that made this tourney come alive.

btw, there was a hidden bonus on the Final Mission in one of the building inside the Castle - there was a guy reading a map on a table and a map on the wall. I did hint at this to all players for the Final Mission, but alas, noone found it. If you had, it was worth a 100 points to you - enough for some of the guys near the top to leapfrog the leaders and take victory.

Lightspeed out.

Congrats to the winners. The top scorers really are elite ghosts, I gave each mission my best shot but it wasn't good enough, so I have total respect for those players who stuck it through to the end with consistantly high scores, congratulations!

I thought Lightspeeds missions were extremely enjoyable, and superb one player challenge, and I am sure they will also make great coop games, so I am looking forward to trying them all again, but with a squad instead of solo (if anyone esle is up for that drop me a PM and we'll sort out a suitable day and time).

Helping Lightspeed administer the tourney let me see how much work he put into it, perhaps more than most people realise, so many thanks to Lightspeed for having the idea in the first place and the stamina to see it through to a conclusion, great stuff.

Finally, I anticipate that Lightspeed will be publically releasing a slightly modified pack of these missions that include full ingame briefs, so watch out for that, and hopefully a publicity movie from yours truly eaturing some of the best moments.

Finally Finally, well done [AS] DasLimpet , TAW_Kyar , and *QCM*_IronFIST Ozzy916

ps. At least now Mrs Rocky won't keep looking over at me and asking me what's wrong every few days. Let's just say the air was a tad blue during some of those missions!

Congrats to my buddy Limpet and everyone who participated, but the biggest congrats go to Lithspeed for pulling this off. I know I had fun doing beta test on many of these missions, and I know Lighty did a great job making them quite challenging.

It continues to amaze and please me to constantly be surprised by how much room RSE provided for us in GR, and I think this tourney is another shinning example of someone taking advantage of that flexibility in a new and interesting way. Hats off to you Lighty :thumbsup:

Now that you are done with this, and we are done with our mission for the community coop tourney, maybe we will see a bit more of you on Alpha 2. :gun:

These missions sound like a lot of fun and I really look forward to them being released.

I really wish I had more time to be involved in SP and coop tournaments. With two kids, a VERY demanding wife, and my profession as a CPA I find it very hard to develop my skills as a ghost. I have my swings though. I'll break away from the game for a bit, then come back as work permits. Lately I have been trying more of a strategic coop play ala alpha squad server. Those guys have been very understanding in that I have little military knowledge and I'm usually out of place and have to be given commands a few times before I figure out where I need to be. Now I just need to figure out what is wrong with teamspeak.

I would definately love to play these maps when they come out with anybody here to help me along. I also look forward to trying them solo, which for me means getting about two or three grids into the map before I get shot by what I thought was a bush.

Great job lightspeed.
