  • Captains Night 9/30 - 8PM Central

    Another busy week!

    ) we're still experimenting with Onos strength - https://www.tacticalgamer.com/forum/...60#post1599360

    ) SMs get named as bots! - https://www.tacticalgamer.com/forum/...-named-as-bots

    ) TG has undergone a significant forum software revision change - https://www.tacticalgamer.com/forum/...ming-important

    ) Replay now gives you more information about games - https://www.tacticalgamer.com/forum/...s-are-captured
    -- a 97-minute game?! https://www.tacticalgamer.com/forum/...e-game-on-veil

    ) Captains games now impose a personal resources penalty if the game starts without a commander - https://www.tacticalgamer.com/forum/...ts-with-0-pres

    ) Also, another Captains change: For all viewers, the Captains Board now sorts all Pickable Players by Skill
    -- more consistency for all viewers, and helps folks learn how to pick teams by better watching others do it

    And that's not all, so check out the rest of the TGNS Forums when you have time.

    Looking forward to some great games tonight! :)

    Anyone familiar with our rules is welcome to join us tonight at 8:00PM Central for a curated, password-protected event (I'll post the password in another post below just before 8:00PM 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.
