Title: MWLL Playground: Friday & Saturday Nov 9th & 10th / 7:00 p.m. UTC+0 (UK Time)
Post by: Cherno on November 08, 2012, 12:12:59 AM
Time for next weekend's MWLL gaming!

"Playground" is the code word for any further events like this started by me (and possibly by others, it's just so these things have a common name and people know what to look for when they search the forums).

Planned date is coming Friday & Saturday November 9th & 10th, at 7:00 p.m. UTC+0 / GMT+0 (so 7 p.m. UK Time, 20:00 in Germany)

How to do it: Just join Funbocks Alpha or Beta at this time. A good rule of thumb is to join the other server if one is above 16 players.

Once you have joined and the server is still fairly empty, just stay on the server! Others will follow shortly, so just alt-tab for a few minutes and do something else while the server fills.

In the time until the event, all player are encouraged to advertise it whenever they play MWLL! The more the merrier ;)

Please post here in this thread if you know you will participate and on which days. I will update the list every day.

Teamspeak is optional but encouraged:

Once connected to Outreach, scroll all the way down to the "Bulldog" channel, you should see some of us in there :)

Let's try and make it happen folks ;)

***
IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ!

On a related note, in order to make the game more fun for new players, I suggest the following when you don't know what to do with your earned cash in-game:

If no one needs cash, just check the scoreboard and give it to those pilots who have the lowest scores and/or worst Kill/Death ratios. This helps inexperienced pilots get better mechs instead of being stuck in Ravens the whole match ;)

In my forever aloneness I stayed in and played a couple of games tonight. Just a bunch of people, a campy TSA_Mirage and a pure fun and chaos TC_Inferno.

By the way, does anyone know where I can appeal a ban from outreach? I know this isn't the right place to ask, but after looking around a bit, I'm pretty lost. I don't even know why the heck I was banned.

Sorry, can't help you there. There is no admin listed for Outreach, maybe with some further research you can find who's responsible.

Alrighty, 8 ppl so far, not bad... I'm sure more will have seen this thread but couldn't plan their participation 100%

Just try to join IS on each new map, it might take a while before we can all go on the same side, so stay be patient ;)

Funbocks is at 13 players atm, 2 hours before the event starts. If we fill the server, please be prepared to jump over the Funbocks beta or whatever so we can get two servers going. It's not in the spirit of this event campaign to bar player sfrom playing by filling up the only server that's being played on ;)

You could possibly try PMing one of the NGNG guys over on the MWO boards.

Had quite some cool games. For some reason, no matter how manycap points we had, we always lost due to bleeding too many tickets :D

The experience was a little marred by Deathlock acting like a dick and insulting people as "faggots" or "fags" which I think is really unneccessary in a game.

If the Funblocks admins could contact me to discuss this issue, that would be swell (and maybe we could also do something about TSA_Sandblasted being in the loop :D)

See you guys next time!

Great games, and lots of new players. I was a bit frustrated from crashing again and again in the beginning, but had a lot of fun afterwards. Really looking forward to next patch and the optimisations :D

Thus far this endeavour has been great at giving the playing pop a boost (constructing additional pylons and all that). Maybe we could start paying more attention to splitting the servers if it keeps going this well. Maybe try to populate a US one as well, or alleviate the crashes that start happening when the servers get close to full. I was pleasantly surprised when Cherno and Ivaan joined Beta.

I agree, We managed to populate one and a half servers, but for quite some time we only had one fully staffed, which may have turned an unknown number of potential joiners away. I will try to switch servers with some other earlier next time before the server gets full. I woult like to take this opportunity to thanks everyone who helped populating the server and ask those people to keep doing it in the future, even if it means having to wait minute or fice before playing is resumed (in the case of a server switch).

As for a similar project for U.S., AUS and other timezone players, they are of course welcome to do it, I am sure it will work just as well. All it takes is one to start it and set certain time and advertise it, the rest will follow on it's own. To get your asses up U.S. players and gather your fellow Mechwarriors, the servers are up for the taking ;)

I am already foreseeing those "invalid CDKey" issues popping up when they get out of funblocks. :P

I actually thought that we European players might try to populate a 'murican server on a Saturday to favor our fellow American/Aussie/Kiwi Mech/Hover/BA/WhateverWarriors once.

I play from Central Europe and as far as I remember, I got decent ping when joining Bulldog or one of the American TLL servers. Altough I'll test that again.

Yeah, it was fun yesterday. Only thing I dont like is dropping out when my Modem decides there are too many players.

Obviously I am not the only one, but I am still wondering why that happens. I have a 16k DSL line.

And the odd thing was, I led the list on Ivory tower when we had a good number of more experienced players with us...

No?

Dunno what to make of this. But I just drove Epos, a prime and A was not one of them.

Yeah, the E is surprisingly good. I dont really know what I shall do in IS pureTech. :(

I wanna ride Epo and nothing else. :( Until there are too many players and my connection crashes.  :-\
