I'm with ya Ben, as a matter of fact I went into the archives and re-installed it this weekend!! and IMO I think the average pubbie is more mature in DoD as appose to CSS so I think this will make for a great enviroment. What ya say guys, lets get something going here!!
I'm not very good at making it to scheduled events here though because a lot of other things in my life take priority over gaming right now, so I'm not sure if I'd be around to try it out on the community events server.
Also, I don't know how well the gameplay of DoD:S would fit in this community. Even though its team vs. team, its a hyper-fast game that doesn't involve a whole lot of team-based tactics (in my experience! Prove me wrong, TG!).

Well uh guys...hate to break it to you but there have been several attempts to push the TG DoD server into the limelight, but without solid support from within there really is no hope as to getting a public fanbase. Problem with games like DoD is similar to Dystopia, a basic teamwork system already exists that should be improved upon but is often felt as not neccessary. Also, most people simply don't have the time to dedicate to it. They say they will, but at most they'll play one maybe two games and then call the quits on it. Also, no one wants to seed the server when it is empty cause there is no dedicated fanbase that is almost always assured to jump on.
I'm not saying it is impossible, but these are the main issues we've had trying to get the server going in the past, and people always play DoD as a "side" to their "main game". Also, DoD is a particuliar size that certain server clusters seem to have acquired the majority of "obsessed" users who are for the most part xenophobic to new servers.
That said, if you can think of a solution please say it cause this is a wonderful game that should at least get one more attempt before it gets the boot.
