Greg Hastings Paintball 2 - 4 vs 4 Online CTF Matches

Coffee Beans:
     This post includes a video showing off game-play footage from online matches in Greg Hastings Paintball 2, for the Wii.  The matches shown were played on Skirmish USA's Tunnel Town map.  I checked, to look for real-life photos of the field, and the only one I found was: has the field titled, "The Tunnels", so I'm not 100% positive it's the same one, but I think it is.
     The rounds, "Best 2 of 3", were Single Capture-the-Flag(CTF).  If you were marked or "eliminated", you were reinserted into the map after about a 5 second spawn time.
     I believe the players I played the matches with were:

  • Unnamed Team
  • liz
  • spesel teme
  • critical
  • rt
  • destroyers
     I don't know any of them in real-life, but perhaps I'll end up playing with them again in the future.  Here are two of the rounds we played:

     Saturday was the first day I was able to get into an online match, that had 4 players on each team.  If you play online, you may notice when you shoot somebody sometimes it can take a few seconds after you shoot them, for the "elimination" to be confirmed.  I can't tell if it is latency/hit-detection issues, or if the players I shoot sometimes are using the "wipe" function to try and stay in the match longer.
     Around 1:38 in the video, you can see an instance where I was shot, and it takes about 5 seconds for me to be "eliminated", because I didn't call myself out and I didn't try to "wipe" the hit off.  I just kept advancing away from where I had been hit, getting the flag further toward our goal.  When I watched that again, it makes me want to think the delay in eliminations is not hit-detection or latency issues, but actually the way it is designed.
     The matches themselves seemed to run pretty smoothly on my end, and I really like the level designs for some of the fields.
     If anybody has any specific questions about Greg Hastings Paintball 2 on the Wii, let me know!
