    Captains Night 9/8 - 8PM Central

    Anyone familiar with our rules is welcome to join us tonight at 8:00PM Central for a curated, password-protected event (see password below). 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 short, announced 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 opponent selection should prioritize gameplay quality, but the team-picking selections should absolutely prioritize competitive strength. If a Captain chooses you as his opponent, and you decline, you spectate the rest of the map.

    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!

        It seems the server only has two spec slots as it displays as 18/16 in the browser and I cannot join. Did i miss a change to the spec slot layout?

              For what it's worth, I've had issues joining the server when there are 16 players and I'm trying to join from outside the NS2 client (e.g. attempting to connect via the Steam friends console). In those instances I have been able to join by launching NS2 and then connecting via the server browser.

                Try client console:

                connect tgns.tacticalgamer.com xyz

                where xyz is the password (if any).

                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.

                  Even showing up late, I had a lot of fun games last night, everyone. Thanks so much for showing up. :)

                    I was only trying through the steam browser. which was probably the issue. I'm assuming it does not know / understand the new slot logic in 317. I'll try both alternative methods next time
