Open Merc Night! (organized pick up matches)
« on: April 20, 2011, 04:15:38 PM »
Tired of playing disorganized pub games?
Bored of blasting "Nomads" and "Mechwarrior(3)" over and over again?
Completely "DONE" trying to find a populated server that isn't full?

Most people join the Community Teamspeak to join up on Open Merc Night!
Mechwarrior Living Legends Community Teamspeak 3 Server Information:
MW:LL Main Community Server
Sever Type: Teamspeak 3
Server Address: ts9.gameservers.com:9144


Thanks to the WiE for hosting the community TS!  Even if you don't have a mic you can use the new TS3 to IM people just like any other IM client!

-----

There you'll be able to organize quick "pick up" games with other MWLL players!  These can be anything, 5v5's, 1v1, hell if you're feeling ballsy maybe a 3v1!

OMN are pretty spontaneous when there enough members on the TS server and one of them has access to server controls, one or two people volunteer to run around the server letting everyone know an OMN is going on and what server to join.  Once enough people join the designate OMN server (without spawning) everyone chooses the auto pick team and away you go!

If anyone needs to contact me as a Scrim Master, I'm in the US Eastern Standard Timezone.  Sending me a PM on these forums will send me an email, which I get on my smartphone.  I will respond as quickly as able.

Big thanks to everyone involved in this!  I hear we had our first engagement last night...how did it go?  Who got their appendages removed?

LET'S START A PARTY IN HERE!!

Tuesday April 26th and Wedns. the 27th, at about 5pm-12am CDT(that's Central Daylight Savings Time) Give or take whatever, instructions above in the OP. :)
Open Merc Night with your host/enemy the 12th Vegan Rangers


The 12th Vegan Rangers will be taking on all comers.  5v5 with a maximum c-bill drops, no respawn, best of 3(1st match 350K c-bills, 2nd 425K, and 3rd 500K.  Maps can be chosen on the spot.

Don't have a team?  Unit/Clans and pickup teams are both welcome.  First come, first served, I guess, well actually WiE_AG have first dibs if they can show up. And the 12th will rotate themselves out as well, if enough demand demands it. :D

Any Scrim masters out there are more than welcome to help out, and we might have an extra cockpit for you if you get bored.

If we get enough people, we might be able to swing a 10v10 or something.  Will take a while to purchase 'mechs though if we're pugging that many people.

Anything could happen, but it shouldn't take too long, and a 10v10 would be well worth it.   :)

Sent you a PM, and maybe we could get a couple pickup 10v10s going afterwords.  TLL, and those wittle Kell Hounds will probably show up too. 

@Everyone else interested, I will most likely be "scrim mastering" OpenMercNight on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings.  Let's make this shiz the bee's sha-nee-knees!  ;D

Rock on, Mechwarriors!!!  And here is an adage for the wise: "The 'Mech does not a warrior make." ;)

That was pretty much the most fun I've ever had in MWLL, on par with organized scrims.

Anyone who has the slightest bit of interest in organized games...join us!

It takes a little bit longer to start a round up, but once we get started it's about as awesome as it gets.
