Multiplayer battle-nights!
Okay, here's the deal. I'm planning to organise multiplayer battles. The battles will be listed here and will be set to GMT +10 (Check your timezones in your start bar clock to find out when that is). Every weekend, starting August 4th, will be 'FS2 multiplayer night'.

I'm taking the initiative to get this off the ground, but i'll need some help. If you are interested, register your interest here or PM me. If the times or dates dont suit you, then say so and we'll see if we can get a majority vote to change it.

Dates are set as following : -

August 4th : - 9pm
August 11th: - 10pm
August 18th: - 9pm


And we'll keep going from there. Tell me what you think?

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
I like the idea, but you're going to need to have at least two such sessions on each day to accomodate different timezones. I can actually play for a while at 4am here, but most people wouldn't be able to.

It's certainly worth trying through. This is basically what we did in Descent 2 last year, although without organizing it in any formal way.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
Cool then. What im thinking of doing is getting another 1 or 2 people who are willing, and have good, fast connection speeds to host the games, depending where they live. I'm hoping to get someone who lives in US, and someone who lives in Europe/Uk. Im in Aus, so i can cover the pacific region. People living in western coast USA should be able to connect to my games without too much lag either.

Also this will mean that they can join at times suitable for them. It'll always been on the Saturday night of each week, starting next week, but i'll need volunteers and sign-ups for definites. not 'maybes'. I'm not gonna host a game and wait 15 minutes for joiners if no one shows.

Limit will be 16, 4 wings. Most probably co-ops and team battles.

Also, i need people to say which time slot they're on.

Im on GMT +10. Check your time on the start bar and let me know.

I need a designated host for US and Europe/UK. Let me know if you're interested. You'll need a connection speed of at least 1mb.


***EDIT*** yer, i purposely reset the voting, and fixed it up a bit.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
Umm, what would night time be in EST (GMT - 5) time?  I work night shift, I'd only be available from like 4 or 5 PM - 9 PM, or - 8 AM next day if I have the night off.

 
Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
EST is what will be used for the US time slot.

(So 9pm EST)


Anyway, i'll need someone willing to host the EST games.

Also if people could list their time zone, that'd be great.


Myself, im +10.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
I'm on EST but am something of a night person and can typically play between 11pm and 4am. Earlier in the day, around 3pm or so, might work too.

As for hosting games, I may be able to do a few. It depends on the number of players.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
Oh, cable.  I thought you said cache.

Not sure if I have 1MB Cable, I think so, but I also think it's not going to perform at that rate...
