Re: EA117's Fill The Server Event!!!

A reccomendation Bang...

It is tedious because you can only group message 5 at a time, but the last time I tried an event I hit Gametracker, sorting by time played so I didn't miss as many people and messaged all of our old regs.
Brought a few back from the dead.

I'm merely leaving notes on player chat and observations. No plans to reinvent the wheel on Bulge currently.

Re: DC Urban Siege possible changes

I think a big part of it is that blue's main is very open while red's is not. Easier to defend when you have tons of high ground around the flag.
Maybe make red's main the market.

Re: black screen when i join server

the resolutions offered and supported through the video card driver likely changed with one monitor connected versus the other monitor.

Re: Possible “Clan War” Based Matches

Hey Mamba, I don't believe this came to fruition. If you're ever scouting the communities to organize an event, we do have some interested parties and would love to hear about it! But generally our player base is pretty casual. Do the life stuff, crash some hummers into trees to wind down, head to b...

Re: TV Shows

Murder drama aren't something I often watch but I might have to check out Trapped. Netflix picked up a lot of really good foreign shows/films. You should check out 1983 Trench. Polish show. Unfortunately a season 2 is not looking good but I really hope they do produce one some day. https://www.netfl...

Gloomhaven

My sister in law started dating a guy a few years ago who grew up as a DnD nerd. He introduced us to an entire new world of board games beyond Monopoly. Pre-covid, I was spending Friday nights playing Gloomhaven with them. It is like a watered down DnD and card based. They started working on a digit...

TV Shows

What have you been watching on your streaming service of choice? Or if you're still in the stone age, cable? I recently got into Superstore on Netflix and it is one of my new favourite shows of all time. It is like The Office but at Walmart. I also need to dive into the final season of Shameless tha...

Re: Custom Made Maps in the Rotation

It is almost impossible to get people to download custom maps. Hell, people in 2021 don't even appear to have installed the RTR/SW maps. When Moon switches from Vanilla to Secret Weapons on sundays, we typically go from 40 players to like 20 players when the map switches. That tells you how many pe...

Re: Is there a no base-camping rule on CTF?

Otto, That really is the name of the game though. Ultimately you want to dominate your opponents in order to bleed their tickets, steal their flags, or destroy their objectives while also setting up defense so they cannot do it to you. One thing I do hope happens more though is our "fluffers&qu...

Re: Is there a no base-camping rule on CTF?

That is really the ideal situation to be in during CTF.
Hold all control points, have your team taking out every enemy right at spawn to eliminate threats to the flag carrier, carrier makes 5 trips back and forth.
