Shootmania is the latest FPS game to hit the eSports scene and GamersLeague has seen the true potential of the game in eSports!
With that said we present our own server to support the game and its players!
What is Shootmania?
Shootmania is a new FPS (first-person shooter) game by Ubisoft and Nadeo. At the moment the game is in the beta stages, but to get access to it all you need to do is preorder the game from their website. After playing the game and its different modes, we in GamersLeague feel certain that this game might finally fill the shoes of Quake in eSports. It seems to be a great mix of Quake and Unreal tournament, and with the supreme map editor from TrackMania it never gets boring as there are always new maps to play.
Team GamersLeague will also be looking to get a 3v3 team (with players that can also play 1v1) to take part in tournaments for the organisation. And who knows.. Maybe there's a GL Tournament coming up soon?
To find the GamersLeague server simply open the public servers list in game and locate the GamersLeague server. To keep track on when there's action and lots of people on-line simply add the server to favourites.
Shootmania has several game modes and here's some short info on them.
Free for All, the player has a certain amount of hit to do to win the map
Royal (The mode that the GamersLeague server runs):
A survival Free for All, where the aim is to be the last man standing at the end of the round. It’s possible to activate a sphere which will shrink the playing field via a pole which is generally located at the centre of the map.
It’s a team-based pole capture mode. The goal is to capture the poles of the opponent team or to have the highest capture rate at the end of the timer to win a round.
Variant of the Battle mode. From the moment where a player starts to capture a pole, a timer of 15 seconds begins for the offender team. The poles can be captured during the time. On the contrary, if the team in defense succeed to push back the offender during the 15 seconds they can capture the pole of the opponent team.
Time Attack :
The goal is to arrive to a pole located somewhere in the map by passing all the checkpoints as quickly as possible. The player with the best time at the end of the time period wins the map.
Elite (This is the mode tournaments have been running so far):
a 3 vs 3 mode. On the field there is an offender equipped with a laser gun (can eliminate an opponent in one hit) with 3 armor points, must survive 45 seconds against 3 defenders equipped with rocket launchers (one armor damage per rocket). Once the time expires, he has 15 seconds to capture the pole or eliminate the 3 defenders (he can also do it the 45 first seconds) to win the round.
1 v 1 mode. Players have limited ammunitions. They have to touch one of the poles present in the map to reload their weapons. To win a round, a player must hit his opponent a certain amount of time.
You also need to keep in mind that several game modes have already be created by the community!
