Despite all the weirdos who voted Caturday, it tied with Thursday.

As such, I'm using executive authority (along with Ookii) to tell you that Caturday was never really an option. It was the loser's option.

Sorry.

Anyway, OPTIONS:

Do we want to run and test out new custom maps on one of these days?
Do we want to limit the players to 8v8?
Do you want us to put hydro back in?
Do you want us to turn off pyro completely?

Things like this. Anyway, suggestions for these nights because it's special.

Sorry about last night guys, I'm a forgetful bastard. I can tell you what oranges and blues I got in Hellgate though. ^_^

-no
-whatever makes sense
-dunno I've only played the maps that we scrim'd on + 2fort extensively
-why?  I can't shake the feeling they got stealth nerfed do you play spy extensively or something?

My suggestions:
-Beating Slayerik was fun, lets do that more often.
 
-The server has already started to pick up a few "regulars" from the random genpop.  I don't think we should shut it down 2-3 times a week during primetime.  Could we turn Tues/Thurs into pick up games?  We used to do that in Tribes1 and it was awesome.  2 team captains, pick their teams and play an organized game.  Unless we're regularly going to have 12+ f13 people there on these nights in which case make ppl like McVenner join f13 group...  etc

Are there really any completely broken facets of the game? I've never noticed pyros being broken. :/

On the other hand, there should be no server limit, just password protection.

I was just throwing that shit out there. It wasn't 4 things I wanted particularly addressed. People could bring up their own things. The pyro thing was a joke.

I would like to see more organized games/scrims. Those are fun. Until everyone cries like a preschooler with a skinned knee.

Seconded.  Just locking off the server to pubbies without inviting in people to replace them tends to result in an empty server.

If we could get enough folks committed to showing up at a certain time, locking works fine with me. 12 on 12 all F13 would be fun as hell.

Is there a console setting where people have to be invited onto a team to join the game?  I've had that used in other games to facilitate organized pick up games.

I like organized play a bit.

EDIT:

Schild from locked thread: Strazos.

He complains about the maps a lot because he plays a sniper on almost everything.

But he kills a lot of people, so no one gives a shit.


TRUTH. I'm ok with Scouts now, though. And I did ok for a bit as a demo, even though I never play the class.

Straz, learn to play engineer. You can use all of your c2v skills as an engineer, just like a sniper!

You all better be in the full swing of something awesome when I get home at around 6:45pm PST, I could use some rocket jumping lessons & we could use a OvD scrim on the last point of Dustbowl.

Or we should just get a quasi-organized pickup going, or something, what is the plan?

Well, considering how empty the server has been, I don't even know if we need to lock it. However, I'm hoping Ookii actually added some new maps. Let's find out.

Mmmm Thursday night... empty, not updated server.

I went back to fighting patching  NDA anyway, which was almost more fun as playing with clueless people who don't know what Medics are for. Seriously if I play on a public server and am healing someone when a Pyro sets us both on fire YOU LEAVE THE HEALTH PACK FOR THE MEDIC.
