I think we could have a lot more informal 5v5s in MWLL, I think the interest is there. We just need to organize it to make it happen.
When I was playing CS competitively, there were nights when I would do nothing but 5v5 scrims for several hours in a row, one scrim after another. In order to make that happen though, a large reserve of ringers was necessary.
So here’s my idea:
If you are available and would like to scrim (i.e. you have the right VOIP program and enough time to finish), log on to some arbitrary meeting place, I think a #MWLL Scrim channel on mIRC would work best. Once enough people were active in the channel, then they go scrim and then happily post about it in the “your memorable moments” thread.
What we would primarily need are folks with admin access to private servers...can’t scrim without a server. I think enough units have opened their teamspeak servers up to the public that we don’t have to worry about that, and there are always free VOIP servers easily googlable (as long as you can deal with the harassment that comes with a free server).
What do you guys think?
Oh, and I realize this might be better off in one of the other forums, but I wanted it to have a higher profile because a lot of folks don’t check those forums. If one of you fine moderators wish to move it, so be it!
