I need specific days, times, and it needs to pop Pop POP! *Z snaps*

I'd be interested as long as the day it turns out to be is one I am free on. (BTW, what timezone?)

Once I drank so much, I could feel the veins in my head pump blood with a massive headache, and an urge to move around a bit.

POSSIBLE BATTLE DATES: JANUARY 18 THROUGH 21
OTHER POSSIBLE DATES: FIRST OR SECOND WEEK OF FEBRUARY

I have decided these dates because its a weekend and a holiday weekend to boot. I have yet to decide exact times. Remember all dates are EST. Adjust accordingly. Please reply as soon as possible.

Edit: Battles could be held on all four days specified. This ensures that as many people who want in can get in. If you can make it for all that would be great.

You're sure that wasn't too much COCAINE, not 16 cans of coke-a-cola? I hear that's pretty much what OD'ing on cocaine is like..

I don't think I'll do this, the lag will be fucking awful, I only know of about 2 or 3 people who can host 8, and if those people were there and just enough for them all to take a full load thats 24 people, and I've seen that many one without an organized meta flood. Also, if it's just dates, not hours, there are a lot of different time zones and a lot of people might be at work/school while some people are playing. Also, most of the people I see on net don't go to the pfhorums, although they are generally there often enough that they won't miss out on it. I doubt these would be very good games anyway, a lot of people will probably have lost a lot of their skill, and most games will probably be fairly one sided. Really though, unless we (you) can get at least 4, hopefully 5 or more GOOD hosts, meaning they can take at least 6 people and won't host shitty maps (shitty meaning maps that downright suck, the occasional gag map I would be alright with, you and I both seem to be very fond of those :P), and same thing goes with physics. Some physics downright suck, some are fun for a couple rounds, some are actually pretty good (although very, very few).

Basically, I will probably come check it out, but if it sucks ill probably leave right away. I'll see if Ravenpulse is interested though, although i would doubt he would play more than a couple rounds (if he plays any at all).

Oh, we're supposed to actually play games? Screw that, I thought we were just supposed to show up. BTW Jim, you should send an email to the list, since it has a larger audience than here.

Why don't you set up a list of map packs and physic files you're going to primarily host from then? That way you won't have to worry too much about "bad maps".

Okay..

Maps:

Paradise Lost

Red Spectrum

Popems

Revel

Sovereignty

Second Quest

Any of the SQ Coriolis maps

Grendels Happy Cookie

Underworld

Not that people should ONLY host those, but those are probably what I'd like to see hosted most, I wouldn't mind playing some of Gravity's Rainbow, and I'm not sure what people think of any of my maps, most of them definitely aren't very (or even) good though.

For physics, basically I'd recommend using standard, although a couple rounds on TC++ or Rambo would be alright. As long as physics aren't too wacky I wouldn't mind.

This is all personal preference though, I'm not saying people have to do what I say, but generally when I play a good round on net it is with standard physics and on one of the maps/packs above.
