EU Teams - (Home Server: CC)
Team Roar: Master of Puppets, Invader_Zim, [TSAT]Flow, Ares - Alt: Darth Nader
Team Phys: CoPraS, Darth Nader, Arcos, 3LG

US Teams (Home Server: PNA)
Team Yarr: Wench, Dante, Elbig, Zabiela
Team 10LC: lcpuche, Fiskbit, TheMorris, Aphi, Genre, X

Results
-Team Roar vs Team Phys-
Ares, Flow, MoP, and Zim from Team Roar took on CoPraS, Arcas, Darth Nader, and 3LG from Team Phys in the first game of the tournament. With such experienced players on both sides, it was very close, but Team Roar won both matches 5 rounds to 3 for a combined 10-6 win. The 4-man IRIS teams turned out to be a handful against the even craftiest Hidden tactics. The IRIS teams dispatched the Hidden 14 out of 16 rounds and with only 11 IRIS deaths total.

-Team 10LC vs Team Yarr-
Elbig, Wench, Zabiela, and Dante from Team Yarr squared off against Team 10LC's Aphidoidea, TheMorris, lcpuche, and Genre in the second game of the tournament. Again, the match was close, with the Hidden players continuing to have trouble against IRIS. The first match ended 4-4 with no Hidden victories. With the rounds tied, the match was decided by kills with Team 10LC winning 11-6. After losing the first round of the second match, Team Yarr won 3 straight rounds to pull ahead 3-1, but Team 10LC tied it up with a last round Hidden victory over a short handed Team Yarr as Wench's computer completely shutdown before the round. Again the match was decided by kills, this time going to Team Yarr 9-6. Edging out the victory by total kills (17-15), Team 10LC moves on to face Team Roar in the finals tomorrow and Team Yarr will face Team Phys.

-Team Roar vs Team 10LC-
Darth Nader turned to the dark side, joining Zim, MoP, and Ares on Team Roar for the championship game against Team 10LC's Aphi, lcpuche, X, and Fiskbit. The first match was played on CC. The match was even early on, but Ares pulled off a Hidden win mid way and Team Roar pulled ahead, but in the last round, X tied it up with a Hidden win of his own. The match went to Team Roar by kills (9-6). The game moved to PNA for the second match and Team Roar jumped to a 2-0 lead as Zim got his third Hidden win of the tournament. Team 10LC played hard with some very close Hidden rounds, but were unable to recover, losing the match on rounds (3-5). Team Roar is the tournament champion, going undefeated in 4 matches, winning 19 rounds with 38 kills and 5551 damage done. Congratulations Team Roar!

i probably wont be on tap that weekend either for play or admin-ing but let me know if you want the cake for it phaephae and i'll dump whatever configs you have in mind there and lend you rcon for the day.

Phaedrus

Flow, I'm sure you'll do fine. The tourney is open to players of any skill level and I'm sure we will have a mix. It's a team effort, with each player only Hidden twice per match, so it shouldn't be too much pressure. Besides, that part of the fun of competitive play. I bet it will really get your heart pumping when it's your turn.

Paegus, thanks for donating the server time. That will be a tremendous help. Optimally we will have an admin in the 9th slot of each server to exec the configs and record the results. If you won't be around, I can do so remotely if there is nobody else available that you trust.

Wench has agreed to use PNA to host matches and CuBe told me he will set up 1-2 new HiddenBase.de servers for the matches.

I have decided to add a poll to see what is the best date/time for the players. If need be, we can split up the tournament across multiple date/times, but if we can get everyone to agree on a date/time, then it shouldn't take longer than a couple hours to finish, if we have a good server to player ratio.

Also, I would like to ask you all to help get the word out. Not everyone checks the forums regularly. Even if your friends aren't registered here, you can sign up for them. Thanks.

SourceTV doesn't work for hidden yet i'm afraid. at least it didn't before and since no code has changed...

though i'm a little doubious as to how likely the hidden is the ever lose. 1v4 isn't much of a challenge is it?

True, but maybe bigger teams can be created if more people join in.
And a well coordinated team of "vets" could be able to do a lot of damage if they camp in the right spots:p
You should add a poll option that everybody hits, so you can see how many and who enlisted.

Errr, I see my name in them there polls. Does that mean I signed up?

And just to ask again, how will it be scored, pure kills?

Could be fun to have a few special events as well, something like an xbox race or football version with Jimmeh and shotguns. Kinda like special olympics :P
I'm going to hell for that last bit...

How are the points scored? Standard kills or do you have anything else up your sleeve?

The match outcome is determined by rounds won. The match will work like this: each player on team A will each take a turn as Hidden against team B, then each player on team B will take a turn as Hidden against team A. This would be the first half of the match (8 rounds). If there is a latency imbalance between teams, the second half of the match (8 rounds) can be played on a different server. The first team to win 9 rounds, wins the match.


though i'm a little doubious as to how likely the hidden is the ever lose. 1v4 isn't much of a challenge is it?

Balance is a concern of mine and I am open to suggestions. Here are the tournament server settings which I think affect the balance:

hdn_deathnotices 0 // No death messages
hdn_limitbombs 1 // Hidden will get 1 pipebomb
sv_alltalk 0 // Hidden cannot hear IRIS chat
sv_pigstick 0 // No pigstick
mp_friendlyfire 1 // Friendly fire is on
mp_roundtime 180 // 3 minute rounds

I had thought that 4 cooperative IRIS should be able to compete against the Hidden under these conditions, but perhaps you are right. Maybe we should have friendly fire off? And what about the round time? Also, we could use a script to strip the pipebomb.



hey pead PNA server is actually a US central sever so you can use it for both East and west

and yes ill participate... something to do while we wiat for B5.:D

According to this (http://www.game-monitor.com/hidden2_GameServer/216.52.148.45:27015/PNA_PS-Off_FF-On_Limited_PB_Mod._Weighted.html) it is located in Seattle. And "sat,sun"? Which is better? Also, everyone should vote in the poll for all the times that will work, not just the best time. Right now it looks like Sunday will be better for most people.


True, but maybe bigger teams can be created if more people join in.
And a well coordinated team of "vets" could be able to do a lot of damage if they camp in the right spots:p


Any larger than 4 players and both teams would not be able to fit in the server at the same time, which I think would really slow things down. Perhaps we could do a free-for-all style tournament where the top 4 players from each server move on. The bottom halves could face each other in a double elimination match. Maybe next time?


Are we able to choose our own teams? If so I already know who I want :P

Yes, you can select your teammates.

I am keeping a list of players in the first post and I am adding voters to it so you are included. :p

Special events could be fun. Ideas are welcome. Perhaps I (or someone) can make a simple custom map with some fun obstacles: a pounce track, jimmeh basketball, xbox crate breaking, knock down barrel pyramid, etc.

Alright, we have 15 players so far, just shy of enough for 4 teams. You can see the list on the first post (http://forum.hidden-source.com/showthread.php?t=9733).

Match times will be determined once the teams are settled and I can get more accurate availability from them. This may not be until the weekend of the tournament. Teams can make substitutions up until the match starts to fill in for unavailable players. Please add me (steam://friend/add/76561197970653931) on steam friends so I can reach you for the matches.

Will the instakill protection during the tourney on clandestine be active? If yes, will it be active on all the other servers to make it even? Are all the servers 66 tick or 100 tick or mixed?

IMO friendly fire should be on!

Paegus
15th July 2008, 10:55
the server will be passworded to i was planning on temporarily removing the ban list and all plugins and server mods so purely rcon access. Though come to think of it, it sounds like some form of event script may be employed to regulate who gets what. I'll talk to phae though about it since it wont be running in tournament mode all day i think. might even just see about setting up a side server solely for this.

And if you'd thought to check, Hannibal, you'd have found that your ban expired a while back. so lets see how much longer you last this time...

as is the server runs at 66 tick as that's more in line with what b5 will be as far as i'm aware and it provides a greater challenge for the hidden overall. if everyone agrees that 100 is better for hidden (though i still find this all thoroughly amusing given the 4v1 nature and the current set of players involved) then i'll talk to chilli. and if i can't get in touch with him in time then i doubt he'll mind it running slightly hotter for a day or so.

e: are you planning on being strict with file consistency phae?

TheOtherDante
15th July 2008, 15:08
i think a few resrictions should be added along the lines of "instagibbing" and "camping".

and maybe following the tourneys major rounds we can do special bonus rounds like 303 only with hidden only having 12 hp, but super pounce.

just some thoughts...

and another edit...

phead i forgot to ask last night before i went offline if you where going to be demoing the rounds and possible posting the recordings some where.

PNA is 100 tick. CC is 66 tick. Though it would be nice, I don't think it is absolutely necessary that both run the same tickrate. I don't think PNA can readily change theirs, so it would be up to CC to match it.

I have been considering a custom script to assign teams, control rounds, and record results. I have not written anything as of yet, but I may. It would have to be fairly robust to handle possible problems such as disconnections and substitutions. I had not planned on strict file consistency, but perhaps I should.

Even if I don't write a tournament control script, I think I will write a simple script to scale physics damage to prevent instagib. I will consider demos, but I don't think I will have the time to edit a movie or anything like that.

I think instagibbing should be possible its a b4 tourney! How about camping more than 30 Secs the same spot you will explode:rolleyes:!

Phaedrus
15th July 2008, 16:25
I intend to be present for all of the matches to referee them. With a 4v1, I think "strategic" positioning should be allowed, but exploitive camping such as the highrise fence or the derelict trash bin will not be allowed. As for instagib, I suppose I can leave it to the two teams to agree on before the match.

If anyone is interested, I want to organize a Hidden:Source 4v4 tournament. I am still working out the details, but here are my initial ideas...

Each player from one team will play as Hidden against the other team, while the rest of their team spectates. The teams will take turns in this fashion until each player has had two turns as Hidden for a total of 16 rounds per match. In the event of a tie, the team with the highest combined score will be deemed the winner.

Given the size of the community and the locations of it's players, such a tournament will be somewhat difficult to administer, so I am asking for assistance. If we can get 1 US West, 1 US East, and 1 Europe server to help host this event, I have made standardized configurations (see attachment). If not, teams will have to agree on an empty, ping neutral server which we can fill for the match (8 players + 1 admin).

I would like to tentatively schedule the tournament for Saturday, July 26th 2008 at 10:00AM. I will be free the entire weekend to administer and record matches. Depending on the response and availability, the tournament may need to be on an as available basis, which means teams can schedule matches and the tournament will progress more slowly.

If you are interested in playing, post your name and location. If you want to team up with your buddies, please say so and I will record the teams in this post. Otherwise, I will organize teams based on location. If you can host a server, please post it's name and location. Suggestions are also welcome. Thank you.

Admins:
Phaedrus

These are the preliminary teams, based on what info I have for location and availability. These are only preliminary. If you would like to be moved for any reason, please private message (http://forum.hidden-source.com/private.php?do=newpm&u=4634) me. I will do my best to accommodate you. Also, let me know if you want your team name updated.

Playoffs
To be determined...

With 4 teams, we will have every team play each other once. After this, the standings will be determined by match/round record. This means standings will be based on matches won, then rounds won if there is a tie in matches. Once the standings are determined, the top two teams will play a best of 3 series to determine the winner. Optionally, the bottom two teams can play a best of 3 series as well.

Match times will be determined once the teams are settled and I can get more accurate availability from them. This may not be until the weekend of the tournament. Teams can make substitutions up until the match starts to fill in for unavailable players. Please add me (steam://friend/add/76561197970653931) on steam friends so I can reach you for the matches.

First post has been updated with alternates and maps to be played for the first 3 rounds of the match. Signups are still open and new teams can be formed if we get enough alternates.

Yeah, I need to work out the play schedule with the players involved. The poll hasn't exactly been decisive. We will just have to arrange match times that work between teams and work in alternates.

I'll be to busy with my son to be able to play, but my server is all yours for as long as you need it!

Let me know what you would like to do. Last I checked you still had full access to the server... but ftp might have changed.

I'd love to see 10LC go against iPhys.

If some is in dire need of an alternate, I might be able to help out.

Phaedrus
16th July 2008, 07:14
I have added you guys as alternates for now. I may form more teams, depending on players and availability. Speaking of which, match times need to be set and to do so, I need EVERYONE to vote in the poll for ALL the times that they can play. This will help determine if any team changes need to be made and/or if alternates need to be assigned for a particular match. I will be available the entire weekend to coordinate the matches. I will attend every match to referee as well as record team and individual scores, which I will post here.

Knigh7s, thanks for the offer, but I don't think we will need your server at this time. If I still have access, I have lost the info. Can you PM it to me, in case it turns out we need it? Thanks in advance.

I have changed the maps back to stalkyard for the preliminary rounds, but I reserve the right to choose a different one for the playoffs. :p

I have spent the last 6 hours coding the beginnings of the Tournament script and it is shaping up nicely. This will really automate the gameplay to the point that an admin won't necessarily be needed. I would say that I am about 75&#37; finished at this point (800+ lines of code so far). All that's left is the selection and scoring systems, which shouldn't take too much more work.

Here is how it works (so far):

When players connect, they are put into an unassigned queue. Players can join either team 1 or team 2 with the commands !join1 and !join2 respectively. Once a player has joined a team, they can set their ready status with the !ready and !unready commands. You can see the ready status of both teams by with the !status command. You can return to spectator with the !spec command. Players are prompted with the commands as needed. When they connect, the script will tell them to !join1 or !join2. When they join a team, the script tells them how to !ready and !unready or !spec. The script also enforces team size and resets their ready state if they leave their team.

When both teams are full and ready, the teams are locked, the tournament configuration is set, scores cleared, and the match begins after 3 restarts. Players can no longer !unready and the match will proceed until completion. Any unassigned players will be kicked or forced to spectate, depending on the settings. Connecting players will also be kicked or forced to spectate, based on the same setting, unless they are on a team and were disconnected, in which case they are immediately returned to their team and their score is restored. The script has a list of admins that may spectate without being kicked.

The script will then randomly selects a team to go first on the Hidden side. Each of its players will take a turn as the Hidden against the other team, while their teammates spectate. The script will record and announce the results after each round, until each player has had 2 turns as the Hidden. At the end of the match, the script will determine a winner based on rounds won. If the rounds are tied, combined team score will determine the winner. If the score is tied, combined team damage will determine the winner. If that is tied, you're screwed. :p

I am going out of town until Monday. When I get back, I will be finalizing the teams and picking match times as well as finishing this script.

Does the script save it's values after each round?
Hidden does crash eventually :(

The match state is saved at the end of each round. I still need to build a restore process though, as well as a half match function for when multiple servers are to be used for ping equality. As for timeouts, the player scores are saved and restored automatically when they reconnect. I could build in match pausing in the case of disconnections and a possible player substitution scheme, but that gets complicated.

I will think about this, but I think it may be easiest to come up with a rule for voiding or forfeiting the match, like in competitive gaming leagues. Usually play continues short handed unless the team decides to forfeit the remaining rounds and end the match. I suppose we can void the match if this occurs early on, like before the 5th round or something. I will be working on an official rule set and this will be covered in them.

There is an autodemo feature which starts a demo for each player (name format: HST_YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS) at the beginning of each round of the match. The demo stops at the end of each round of the match, after the result printout. Every player will have the exact same set of demos, from the same time frames, but from their point of view. This could allow for some cool videos of the same action from multiple angles and there should be some awesome action given the talent involved in this tournament.

22nd July 2008, 11:23
So i see im in team Phys now, well i can live with that :rolleyes:

But i have a question regarding the servers, even though i have my doubts that physkills will be used a lot in such a high level tourney, i was just wondering IF someone actually tried to pull it off will the PNA server sport thesame anti-insta frag script as CC or will it be removed?

Since trying to do physkills against a team of skilled players is already hard enough, it would also be unfair if (when you actually pull off a 100 dmg hit or higher) that your target still remains alive, and with a bit of luck frags you despite your best efforts.

p.s. I just thought of something else right before i wanted to hit the "submit reply" button.

What about the tickrate? Since i know CC has a 66 tick but i dont know what PNA has it might prove a bit confusing at some point if tickrate's vary. Like playing with 66 on CC and suddenly you have 100 tick on PNA. It might prove difficult since one moment your getting used to 66 or 100 and then suddenly it changes.

Well that was on my mind anyway :)

Paegus
22nd July 2008, 12:05
thread check, isle Digit*


the server will be passworded to i was planning on temporarily removing the ban list and all plugins and server mods so purely rcon access. Though come to think of it, it sounds like some form of event script may be employed to regulate who gets what. I'll talk to phae though about it since it wont be running in tournament mode all day i think. might even just see about setting up a side server solely for this.

And if you'd thought to check, Hannibal, you'd have found that your ban expired a while back. so lets see how much longer you last this time...

as is the server runs at 66 tick as that's more in line with what b5 will be as far as i'm aware and it provides a greater challenge for the hidden overall. if everyone agrees that 100 is better for hidden (though i still find this all thoroughly amusing given the 4v1 nature and the current set of players involved) then i'll talk to chilli. and if i can't get in touch with him in time then i doubt he'll mind it running slightly hotter for a day or so.

e: are you planning on being strict with file consistency phae?

&


i spoke to chilly today and he has no objections to my fiddling with tickrates or even a temp server just for the day so i'll probably go with a temp one as it's safer and wont interrupt the usual service.

:D

especially for US Westers

I am still working on the rules, but it will be as fair as possible. Each team plays every other team twice, once at home and once away. In the case of both US or both EU teams, the two matches can be played concurrently on the same server. EU vs US teams will play one on each. During each match both teams will get same amount of turns as Hidden and IRIS. Right now, I am thinking it will be 8, two minute rounds, where each player gets one turn as Hidden vs the other team.

EDIT: With 5 teams, each team will compile an 8 game record. The best 4 teams will face off in an elimination to determine the winner.

22nd July 2008, 18:53
Right now, I am thinking it will be 8, two minute rounds

Two minutes is an awful short time, even if you are up against only 4 guys. Don't you think this enforces too much of a play2win game?

"Omfg only two minutes!!one1!! Gotta slash em all, Hiddenmon!!1"

Maybe 3 minutes would be more suitable...gives time for engaging the enemy and even some time too, i dunno, try to mess around with your opponent a bit.

Well, my original configuration was 3 minutes, but I decided to reduce it to shorten the potential match time. The pace should be fast or the tournament would drag out too long. The matches are intended to be competitive, so "play2win" should be the attitude. The Hidden should feel a bit rushed, but have enough time to get things done. Teasing should be at a minimum. Perhaps 2 minutes is too short. I will consider changing it to 2.5 minutes. I hope to play test a match later this week, once the script is finished. This should give me a better idea of what settings to use.

Yeah, thanks to Paegus, Digit*, Master of Puppets, Flow, Zim, Spray, Genre, Zabiela, and Redeemer for all your help so far today. I am pretty confident now that the player cycling is working correctly. The teams switch turns as Hidden correctly and the Hidden team is properly spectating except for the one Hidden. I was also able to pound out several small bugs during the process that I didn't tell you guys about. I know it is a bit boring to wait for me to code while you play, but it really helps me out. There are still a couple bugs that I am aware of and the scoring system needs to be written. I also need to work on making better player instructions to make starting a match easier, but all in all, the script is shaping up nicely. It is one of the most complex I have undertaken.

23rd July 2008, 19:57
Personally, I found the player prompts were drowned out with the chat and other various messages being pumped out, so if you can find an alternative way to have players select a team that would be great.

I'm not sure if popup menus work in hidden, but that would be a good way to do it. I bet you thought of that already and they don't work so I guess my saying this is useless.

Let me apologize in advance. I know this isn't going to work out so that every player can play every match, but it should allow the most players to show up for the most times. We can use alternates when needed and any friends that may be online at the time. If you know in advance that any of these times absolutely won't work for you, please post which ones so we can assign alternates in advance.

Each team will play 8 matches. Each match is eight rounds. With a maximum round time of 2.5 minutes, each match should take no longer than 20 minutes, once started. Matches will occur every 30 minutes on both servers, which means there will be at least 10 minutes to get the teams ready to play each match. This results in 4 hours of matches per team, but with 5 teams this will be spread across 6 hours. I have split the schedule across both Saturday and Sunday in such a way that 3 teams will play for 2 hours each day, while the other 2 teams will play for 3 hours on one day and 1 hour on the other.

I apologize if this seems confusing. I have attached an excel document which shows the player availability I was able to obtain and the schedule in, perhaps, a more easily understandable form. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions about when you need to show up. I should be around most of the weekend and of course during the actual tournament times. Remember to add me (steam://friend/add/76561197970653931) on steam friends, if you haven't already. I have a ventrilo server available if needed, but since I doubt everyone has ventrilo, I will probably just form a chat room through steam 30 minutes before the first match each day and start inviting everyone.

How I'd love to partake in this, I'm sorry but I can't.

I'm wont have access to any computer as of Saturday for a week, so I'm unable to attend.

To be fair, I organized this before the Hidden Tournament and didn't realize the dates would clash.

Real sorry, escpecially Roar and iPhys.

Sorry, I also will not be able to make it for the same reason as Xenmas. Apparently taking down this playhouse thing we have in our backyard is more important. Thanks for your time putting me up on the list though. I would be able to make part but not enough to make it worth keeping me on the list. Sorry for putting this up so late, I really am, but I was not aware of this until around 10 minutes ago.

At least I get to demolish something with a sledgehammer, that always seems like fun.

Since we have 4 teams again and scheduling is proving difficult, I am going to convert this back into an elimination style tournament. The two winning teams will face off as well as the two losing teams. The EU teams have just finished their match and now the two US teams will now need to play. The US teams have not had enough players to start a match today, but most of them are supposed to show up tomorrow.

I have updated the first post with the results so far. Check it out below.

Results
Ares, Flow, MoP, and Zim from Team Roar took on CoPraS, Arcas, Darth Nader, and 3LG from Team Phys in the first round of the tournament. With such experienced players on both sides, it was very close, but Team Roar won both matches 5 rounds to 3 for a combined 10-6 win. The 4-man IRIS teams turned out to be a handful against the even craftiest Hidden tactics. The IRIS teams dispatched the Hidden 14 out of 16 rounds and with only 11 IRIS deaths total.

Results
-Team Roar vs Team Phys-
Ares, Flow, MoP, and Zim from Team Roar took on CoPraS, Arcas, Darth Nader, and 3LG from Team Phys in the first game of the tournament. With such experienced players on both sides, it was very close, but Team Roar won both matches 5 rounds to 3 for a combined 10-6 win. The 4-man IRIS teams turned out to be a handful against the even craftiest Hidden tactics. The IRIS teams dispatched the Hidden 14 out of 16 rounds and with only 11 IRIS deaths total.

-Team 10LC vs Team Yarr-
Elbig, Wench, Zabiela, and Dante from Team Yarr squared off against Team 10LC's Aphidoidea, TheMorris, lcpuche, and Genre in the second game of the tournament. Again, the match was close, with the Hidden players continuing to have trouble against IRIS. The first match ended 4-4 with no Hidden victories. With the rounds tied, the match was decided by kills with Team 10LC winning 11-6. After losing the first round of the second match, Team Yarr won 3 straight rounds to pull ahead 3-1, but Team 10LC tied it up with a last round victory over a short handed Team Yarr as Wench's computer completely shutdown before the round. Again the match was decided by kills, this time going to Team Yarr 9-6. Edging out the victory by total kills (17-15), Team 10LC moves on to face Team Roar in the finals tomorrow and Team Yarr will face Team Phys.

Well, the championship match between Team Roar and Team 10LC just finished and it was very exciting to watch. I wish I had a demo because it was some of the best rounds of Hidden I have seen. I had converted the autodemo to record the whole match instead of each round, but I didn't want to turn it on for the official matches in case it still causes crashes. Oh well. I have added the results to the first post (see below).

Congratulations to Team Roar, our first tournament champions! I would like to send my thanks to Paegus and Wench for donating their servers for the tournament, to all the players who signed up (even if you couldn't make it, but especially if you did), and especially to all of the people who helped me test the tournament script (I know it was probably tedious work). Thanks so much, it was a very fun experience for me and I hope we can do it again before too long.

-Team Roar vs Team 10LC-
Darth Nader turned to the dark side, joining Zim, MoP, and Ares on Team Roar for the championship game against Team 10LC's Aphi, lcpuche, X, and Fiskbit. The first match was played on CC. The match was even early on, but Ares pulled off a Hidden win mid way and Team Roar pulled ahead, but in the last round, X tied it up with a Hidden win of his own. The match went to Team Roar by kills (9-6). The game moved to PNA for the second match and Team Roar jumped to a 2-0 lead as Zim got his third Hidden win of the tournament. Team 10LC played hard with some very close Hidden rounds, but were unable to recover, losing the match on rounds (3-5). Team Roar is the tournament champion, going undefeated in 4 matches, winning 19 rounds with 38 kills and 5551 damage done. Congratulations Team Roar!

From a tiny island just off the coast of Norway, a great Roar! was heard.

Well done guys, I knew you could do it!
