  • Captains Night 2/5 - 7PM Central

    We continue with our new event format: the first Captain volunteers by announcing his opponent Captain -- the two acts (volunteering/announcing) are coupled. Tacit in this announcement will be endorsement by the first Captain that his selected opponent Captain is capable of being a competent Captain. The second Captain may accept or spectate the duration of the map.

    Don't forget, too, that Captains play can be voted in during the week. We've played Captains twice in the last two days, and much fun was had by all.

    --
    Anyone familiar with our rules is welcome to join us tonight at 7PM Central for a curated, password-protected event (I'll post the password in another post below just before 7PM Central). Here is a rundown of the event:

    Fellowship:
    Throughout all of Captains Night, use the player name by which TGNS regulars best know you. Captains Night is a special time to come together with known regulars and friends.


    Playing BOTH Rounds:
    Don't play unless you can reliably stay for the entire map (mid-map emergency? tell your team and bail. dinner and/or friends showing up does not an emergency make).

    This expectation is important to participants, and admins protect it.


    Taking a Break:
    Each map begins with a two-minute break for food, bathroom, and fellowship. Except for these breaks, don't AFK during the event.

    After each break, the Captains are identified for the current map.


    Becoming a Captain:
    TGNS regulars known to participants are invited to Captain and personalize team selections on Captains Night. The first player to volunteer as Captain selects his opponent Captain. This selection should prioritize gameplay quality, while the team-picking selections should prioritize competitive strength.


    Opting In:
    Player opt-ins open up once both Captains are ready. If you miss the opt-in window for a given map, speak up and we'll get you playing on the next map for sure (if not immediately).


    Selecting Teams:
    As team selections begin, listen for instruction. Only Captains speak during team selection -- text chat is always available to everyone (and, of course, voicecomm opens up to all players once teams are formed).


    Gameplay:
    Captains Night is everyone's curated opportunity to apply our most satisfying teamwork, communicative tactics, and great fellowship. Try your hardest, but have fun together!

      Oh, and:

      /Three/ classes of players may opt-in early now, during the post-mapload duration between the "Captains will resume soon" message and the second Captain opting in:

      ) Supporting Members

      ) Captains from the most recent Captains game (synonymous with "last map" during Captains Night)

      ) Anyone who did not play during the most recent Captains game (synonymous with "last map" during Captains Night)

      Gone is the 5-second duration (after the second Captain opts in) during which that last class may opt-in exclusively. With the new code, early opt-ins happen only /before/ Captains opt-in. Once the second Captain opts in, it's free-for-all until we're full.

      It may sometimes happen that early opt-ins completely fill the 14 available non-Captain slots.

      As always, speak up if you're sure it's your turn to play. We'll help out.

          Great, great games tonight, all. The simpler early opt-in logic worked very well, too. Great showing, everyone. Thanks for taking part!
