Wondering if there's any interest in trying to coordinate something for season 3.  Obviously, a lot of us have conflicting schedules, so I'm playing with a few ideas, if there's any interest:

  • Steam Group:  The Roll Call thread is nice, but I'm not generally sitting in the LoL client idle, I'm either playing or I'm out.  On the other hand, I am often running Steam in the background.  So I was thinking it might be more convenient for some people to have a Steam group for LoL where we can organize stuff.
  • "LoL Time":  We could have a signup thread every week (or so) where we ask who wants to play that week, and try to find a time (or two or whatever) that works for the most people.  Whoever shows up, we see what we can do with those numbers.
  • Fixed Teams: We could try to get a 5-man team going, or a 3-man if we're short on players.
  • Roll Call part Deux: We could just re-post in the Roll Call thread or make a new one and glom together a huge list of the active S3 players, and see who's on when, try and coordinate things individually.

I'd love to kick it with f13 people for 3's, 5's, or anything. I think a Steam group is a really good idea. My schedule might be too erratic for a regular team but maybe I could make it work with some Aussies or something.

I made (and am regularly in when I am online) the F13 chat channel in NA. I am the only one who is there though. The in game chat channel is very handy and can easily be configured so that you join as soon as you log into the League client.

Just join the channel using the normal means and then press the little gear and click "join at startup"

I also stick people who play on my friends list under F13 but don't really check my friends list

I can play at set times, I can't really idle in any chat because my gaming computer is not the comp I am using for other stuff now.

If people want to play on a set schedule I am open to that, pretty flexible schedule in general.

I'm open to playing at set schedules. I went ahead and set myself up the f13 chat channel to autojoin on startup.

Sounds good, I'll give that a shot.  I'm Weyen in game, in case someone's wondering who that is.

For people looking for a regular thing, what's your availability like?  I'm pretty open for most of the time, and my schedule should remain pretty stable for the next three months or so.  I'm in Central NA time zone (GMT-6, I think):

Monday:  Free at night, probably too late to play
Tuesday:  Free most of the day after about 13:00
Wednesday: Free in the evening after about 17:00
Thursday: Free most of the day after about 13:00
Friday: Changes, some weeks I'm free in the evening, some days I don't get back until later
Saturday:  Free all day
Sunday: Free all day

I'm a friendless misanthrope who hasn't gamed in a group since the burning crusade days before I quit WoW.

I'm in, and can play at most times.

For people who want in the Steam group, mind posting your steam names/profile links so I can send out invites without having to dredge the F13 group?  I'm lazy.

Edit:
I made the group public for now, so if you want to join without waiting for an invite, head to:

http://steamcommunity.com/id/ezrast (I think this is what you mean?)

In GMT-6, I'm available either from about 07:00-11:00 or 17:00-21:00 depending on when I sleep. Sydney time I believe that works out to 00:00-04:00 or 10:00-14:00. Or all afternoon if it's a Tuesday or Wednesday, as Mon/Tues are my nights off here.

Invites to the Steam group are out for everyone whose ID I know, if anyone else wants in pipe up with a link and I'll invite, or you can just join (it's an open group atm)

On another topic, looking at scheduled play times.  There's a double IP weekend coming up, how are people's schedules looking this coming Saturday/Sunday (Jan 26,27)? 
Other than weekends, it looks like Tuesdays are the most open nights for Ez and myself, how are other people for Tuesdays?

I'm game.

Schedule is I'm typically free during the day (8a-6p eastern) or late at night (11p-2a eastern).

I'll idle in the f13 league chat in LoL.

Also joined the Steam group.

So, how about we meet on Tuesday, start at about 11:00 GMT (which, if I'm doing the math right, is about 18:00 Eastern, 15:00 Pacific, or 10:00 Sydney) and we run for a bit, take a break, and then run a second round at  16:00 GMT (or 23:00 Eastern, 20:00 Pacific, 15:00 Sydney)?  Hat will miss the first one, and Ezrast will miss the second, but everyone should be able to get in a few games at least.  People can show up for one or both or neither.  Sound good, or should I tweak it a bit?

Do we wanna do anything about voice comms?  I feel like it would be helpful, but I don't know anything about running a vent server or what the alternatives are.

Are we trying to compete or is this just more trying to get F13ers together for a few matches?

Just a get together at this point, so yeah, I don't know that voice comm would be necessary, now that you mention it.

IMHO voice comms make the game more fun. I've been meaning to see about setting up a Vent or Mumble server of my own, so I'll get around to that sometime this week. No promises.

If you're playing with friends you should have voice comms since matchmaking will try to put you with other 5s. And they will have comms and you will lose games because they have comms and are able to coordinate.

Yeah, I'd say voice comms are a must if for no other reason than to hear me screaming obscenities in Foghorn Leghorn Southern accent.

Unless we have any more constraints, I'm looking at either 11:00 GMT (18:00 Eastern US) or 16:00 GMT (23:00 Eastern US).

Barring that, I'll just check when the most people are on the chat and we can aim for that time next week, if people are up for it.

Think those times should be 06:00 and 11:00 Eastern. That might be part of our problem.
