  • Captains Night 7/15 - 8:30PM Central (with Replay help before)

    Since last week, we've launched a TGNS Replay Contributors Guide, aimed at making it easier to get started contributing to TGNS Replay. From 7:30PM Central until 8:30PM Central tonight, we'll be on the game server to help anyone who's trying to configure their gaming rig for recording and contributing Replay cameras. Come join us if that interests you (and/or if you'd like to help folks who are trying to setup). :)

    Our collective efforts create a compelling, multi-camera viewing experience for past TGNS games, and I appreciate everyone's participation (I've only recently acquired the requisite hardware, so I understand not everyone can afford the performance hit of recording gameplay!).

    Whether you record tonight or not, let's have some fun! I look forward to seeing everyone on the game server! :) Thanks for being part of this fantastic community!

    --
    Anyone familiar with our rules is welcome to join us tonight at 8:30PM Central for a curated, password-protected event (I'll post the password in another post below just before 8:30PM 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!

    Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.
