Man how intuitive of you Ammar. Every year we always get a CTF guide and I have no idea why you guys make them or who you are making them for.

How about we just compile this

Water's guide to priv - https://zandronum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=524
Legion's guide to competitive CTF - https://zandronum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=444
MassVC - http://idl.[bad site]/index.php?topic=532.0 FIXED courtesy of Rust
Zdaemon CTF - http://www.zdaemon.org/?CMD=info&NAME=ctfguide
Devestation's Doom Guide - https://zandronum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=904
Grand Master Capodecima's guide - https://zandronum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=6697

A very comprehensive guide to CTF

Seriously I mean who isn't reading the guide? I am glad I read the guide. I am glad reading any guide is a meme.

I wonder if there's more.

Except this one has live footage of applying the guide into an actual game. Calm down. Also in the title it literally says a "ctf guide for newbies" how is that not clear enough for who its aimed for?

Good guide. It's a shame a lot of newbies who start playing CTF wont find it here on the forums though. If only there was a way to market it better so that more people would be able to view it!

It's been done to death and probably done better. Who are you making them for again?

Might sound crazy, but there are people who would rather see examples instead of reading paragraphs upon paragraphs of what to do.

Is that why there's paragraphs on paragraphs in the video?

Are you upset that you got nothing? It's cool that your Boyfriend Ammar get some preferential treatment it doesn't take away from the fact that these guides have been done before. Who are they being done for? Obviously not new people. Honestly it's a point of consensus now that it's a narcissistic ploy to showcase someone's knowledge to a community of people who already know "the basics" from pub.

For Ammar: Why don't you do advance stuff we don't know. I know you're a good player so why don't you just do that? We don't get new players so cut straight to the chase.

Mobius I think it is better if people watch it visually, plus it has some live game play footage which makes it even better. Also, I have learnt all of that from my own years of experience and the only guide I have read was Devastation's and that was a long time ago. The guides you have linked are great and I'm just trying to expand the learning zone.

Of everything in this thread I agree with this last point the most.
Edit: After reading ammar's post, honestly this quote right here is the perfect example of how you can actually expand upon the learning of CTF.

The learning zone you expanded on is a reiteration of what has been said and done to death which is the entire point of my post. My last post is a suggestion for you in that you should just do the advance stuff instead and finish the job those other people didn't have the skill to do (including Watermelon).

Also DON'T put text in a video demonstration dude that's pointless. Use your mic.

Taking that as a yes. Have fun deciphering cheats on your own.

If you read the video description I wrote: "I'm thinking of making more videos like this in the future. Suggest me some ideas."

Bruh I will definitely make more videos, this was just a start so calm your boobies.
