View Full Version : Another way to keep NS alive...

05-24-2008, 01:14 PM
Ok, so I think we've reached the point where it's worthwhile to have a set time each week that we gather on the tgns server. When dystopia was in the process of dying out, this worked really well to keep some amount of interest in the server.

Since sunday evening used to be one of the most reliable nights to see a full server, I propose that we set sunday at 6 PM PST / 9 PM EST as a time once a week that we fill the server, starting tomorrow evening. Obviously many people won't have read this by tomorrow, so don't get discouraged if the first week doesn't completely fill up. If you're reading this after 5/25, be sure to join us next week.

I can show up just after starting time, likely.

05-25-2008, 05:06 PM
Roger that.

I'm in, see you guys in 30?

Very successful night.

Good stuff.

I just read the post, I will try to make it. :)

Just a reminder, as this is a weekly thing it will be occuring again tomorrow evening at 6 PST / 9 EST.

06-03-2008, 01:01 PM
I should make it this week. Been out of town.

I missed it the first two weeks, but we had a good crowd last night and some pretty decent games. See you all again next week.

By the way, should we re-order our sticky threads? Maybe add this one and remove the old "gauntlet" thread, for example?

06-09-2008, 07:28 PM
With Sunday being a success three consecutive weeks, we should try getting games together another day during the week to cure lack of NSitous.
Wednesday, or Thursday 6/9?
Hmm? Hey? Yeah.

Is there even a server anymore?

Yes, and if Steam says otherwise, please let us know (http://www.tacticalgamer.com/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=412) so we can have it back online in a timely manner.

Will I be the first to ask "wha happen"? NS used to be, not outrageously popular, but nearly full servers every night with over 50% SM-ship populating them. Now I come back after all these months and see you're resorting to once-a-week dates to keep the game alive :(. Well, I should probably actually install NS (step 1) before I keep talking. Maybe I'll try to make it tomorrow.

What happened? Valve released the orange box, hehe.

07-17-2008, 02:51 PM
It was more than just the orange box, and I'm sure that this post will aggravate some one, but there are quite a few people I know who would play in the TG server if they weren't banned. Maybe another way to keep the server alive is to unban some of the people who would want to play there. I am NOT suggesting to allow unruly players to enter the server. What my idea is there are quite a few players that were banned for miscommunication and this has happened rather recently. They had a role and didn't fulfill it immediately so they were banned. Or they rambo'd and got banned. Maybe argued a tactic and were banned. The list goes on, after all, the server is a pub so you can't expect the game to function like a CAL match. It's more along the lines of a pug (pick up game) where the overall player quality is less. My opinion is, the TG server is a good place to play, or at least a better pub than <BAD> or guns. So if the admins felt like they might be able to take the first step and get a couple people unbanned it would be appreciated by others like myself who want a less-hostile server to play in.

One more thing, there is a group called NS pickup where we try to organize pugs. If you are an active player and a good shot please talk to Radix, Asmodee`, myself, whoever. It's a public group where we try to play a more organized game. So please, if you're interested join up. This is another way to keep NS alive... and it is SERIOUS BUSINESS!
