Released: November 20, 2001. Match record: 5-3.
Crayola made a brief return to its old glory in a series of spirited RtCW matches between December 2001 and February 2002. The magic quickly faded when we discovered that in order to be consistently competitive against the top teams, we actually had to practice! This conflicted with our generally lazy nature (and the fact that most of us now had real lives outside of the Internet and precious little time for games), so we faded out of the RtCW scene. Nevertheless, it was fun while it lasted.
Another factor in fading interest may have been the media circus that match play had become by this time. High-profile tournaments often "shoutcasted" live commentary (an MP3 stream) about matches in progress, similar to color commentators of professional sports games. This was a far greater level of pressure than Crayola had ever experienced before. (Listen to the MP3 broadcast of Crayola vs. Ocrana in the BoB tournament Round 2 (we lost). You have to wait past a bunch of annoying music at the beginning before the match starts.)
UltrViolet dusted off his old QP statistics program and built a new version, uncreatively named WP, for parsing Wolfenstein logfiles.
