  • Impromptu password/pick-em event today?

    I know this would be somewhat short notice, and I know I don't have much say in server affairs, but I have an idea, and I'd like to see what people think of it.

    Can we run a password event of a single CNC map today at about 22:30 or 23:00 PRT today (In about 2 hours as of this post)? I think most any map would work, but I think it would be fun for a change of pace and trying something new if we did Qin Ling. Flag layout problems aren't an issue here, and I think with organization it could be made fun.

    Thoughts?
    Whether by air or on land
    foes crumble at my command.

      Every time we run these short notice pick 'em nights we catch **** from people. It really makes us think twice about trying to do something for the greater good, you know?

        I have no problem with the greater good or events... it's the short to no notice that the server will be locked that bothered me. I'm no longer a supporting member though, so you can take me off that list. Easier to get on when it's locked anyway!

        Sorry for being a bad apple, Dispo. :(

          No reason to fall on your sword, Alpha. Believe me, it's more than one person that has responded negatively to this.

          Just tired of getting kicked in the sack trying to do something fun. Dispo pity party is in full swing today.

            I'm all for not impromptu pw nights. Would love to see that. Improptu nights are only fun and fair to people who are on at the time of the decision... with warning people can plan around it and at least not be surprised to see the server full and locked. Its a kick in the sack to miss out on a great semi organized night (as they are few and far between) just because of a few minutes.

            That being said, when you are a part of the lucky group that gets to play on such a night it is fun and well appritiated.

              Dispo, we've played together since both coming to TG in the spring of 07. You and I both know that PW nights are always a good way to get some good games in.

              If anyone would care to illustrate to me how PW nights, no matter what amount of planning, hurt the server, please do tell. Because I've been around here for quite a few years now and I personally fail to see how a PW night hurts anyone.

                  I think i can almost speak for everyone who has played PR here at TG since .8 and before when I say I miss the weekly Thursday Night and Sunday Day PW Events.

                      Dispo, redirect all those PMs to me. I'll have fun with them, you get to relax.

                        I remember being *kind of* mad about one PW which I wasn't lucky enough to be online when it started, but I wasn't mad at the server, or at whoever did it, I was mad at the fact that I didn't happen to be around at the time. Then I simply suggested doing them with a notice. But I do like PW nights, announced or not. Even if I come in late, I like them.

                        I know that I didn't like that I didn't know if I was going to be able to play, because it only said "be there". Maybe adding "feel free to join when somebody drops, be on mumble waiting room" would do the trick :)

                        Anyway, go for it next time. Don't mind about people complaining too much and I'm sorry if I contributed to the belief that surprise PW nights are not liked by some.
