    The event itself was a fucking mess, for several reasons. I started watching 10 minutes in, at which point there was basically no sound. Eventually they got in game sound working, but the commentators sound was too low to hear anything he said, they tried fixing it but gave up for good after about 10 minutes more. So no commentating at all, although I find it hard to believe it would have improved the quality of the event anyway.

    When I started watching the NC held the biolab, I assume though, that it was neutral when the event started. I think this was a very poor setup for this match. Firstly because the faction to capture biolab initially is likely to hold it throughout the match, which if nothing else, makes for a really boring match. The 2 opposing factions aren't likely to capture the biolab for themselves while at the same time fighting each other. Second, because the NC maxes completely dominated the match from what I could see, wiping everything out with ease. I don't think I ever saw one of the NC maxes go down ever, while constantly being on top of the scoreboard.

    The spectator player was actually a member of one of the factions (NC as it happened), and it was clear he was interacting with the game. He was gaining XP, the capture bar showed up when he was at a capture point, and he was taking damage from the pain fields by the teleporter buildings. People in the stream said he was also triggering claymores, I didn't catch that myself though. Also, apparently the spectator didn't make his player model hidden about half way through the match. I'm not sure how that manifested in the game for the contestants though.

    All this on top of the fact that having a team match with individual winners is a very odd form for the competition.

    It's pretty obvious that PS2 is going to need some fundamental changes or restrictions to have anything like this sort of competitiveness to work. I just don't see it being feasible, basically it would have to be another game, a watered down BF3/CS/CoD.

    Let alone the complete mis-management, how the heck do they expect any game they make to be taken seriously when they can't even get these events right?

    Was a complete mess, I watched for 20 minutes, after which I gave up on it. No sound from the casters, and terrible camera management, couldn't see shit. The scoreboard is what it is so completely pointless. However I think the most basic failure was the set up of the event, from my pov it seems like a terrible idea to fight over a bio lab, because of NC's advantage there, and the ability to lock down players in the teleporter rooms and such. If anything, they should have set up a random single cap point base and disabled the spawn room, and have everyone fight over that base. Would be a lot better to watch, and easier to cast.

    Here are the results: Ultimate Soldier Showdown: All the scores

    Notice that except for 1 outlier (whom i expect disconnected or some such) no NC player scored lower than any player from the 2 other factions. I find it would be hard to argue that NC players are simply that skilled, rather it shows that the format for the competition is fucked.

    Complete horseshit, just goes to show that any real competitiveness in the current state of PS2 is impossible.

    In order for it to be competitive there needs to be an even and equal footing, unless they either restrict weapon usage to a common pool I don't see how else it could work.
