Yeah, apparently the wrong phone number got put on the order and there were cabinet routing issues and blah blah blah. Should have taken them one day to figure it out and get it right in any case, but the company organisation is dreadful.

Yep, see PlusNet thread.

Back OT: wooooo first event! Good luck everyone! I might be able to sit in the chat with my 30 dongle, not sure (also not sure if it will be any fun to stay in there for long if I'm not playing/a GM dev).

EDIT: if you get into the right chatroom and I'm not there, let me know!

When's it on until? I managed to get two games in but now I need to eat. If it's still on when I get back I'll try and cap some footage, providing I'm not in a coma from too much Chinese food.

I just registered to thank for the event.

I played about 20 matches in 4 hours (logging in and out, couldn't play non-stop) It was great finally having a decent amount of challanges with people of different skill levels (some even more lame than me ;)). I guess this kind of events is what the game needs to keep attracting people, since we can't really hope for having players online 24/7. So in my opinion we should do it more often (like weekly).

Anyway thanks for so many good games! And cheers to the players who were esspecially challanging enemies: Kouen Hasuki, realfunfuneral, Scooter... and others I've forgotten already.

Nobody's left in the EU servers, there's only idlers in the US servers right now. I'm gonna step away and take a break for a little while, and then come back to see if anyone else gets in.

I'm still sitting in the Steam group chat, just in case.

Did have a lot of fun playing with the people in the EU server though.

Nothing much else happened after my last post. I hopped back in a few more times, but it was nearly always the same unresponsive idlers.

I did run into two players who were apparently father and son. They wouldn't play with me because they got on just to play with each other. I thought that was actually really cool, and didn't mind not playing with them.

Overall I'd call the event a moderate success. There was a decent turnout of players willing to play, be friendly, and have fun. Definitely something I wouldn't mind doing again. I just need to get better at using bombs first...

Amazing, thanks guys. Sounds like it went really well!

I think a weekly event sounds pretty sensible, if you're up for organising one next week?

It was really nice to see the server status "busy" for possibly the first time and the games I had were really fun and a good challenge. Really didn't think I would be walking away from those, so good job Jan and whoever else it was.

Definitely worth getting it going regularly, although I'm normally at work Saturday nights so could be worth varying the days. Not that I'm essential, just that anyone else with commitments might get left out too. Hopefully once people know it's happening it'll pick up steam and finally get the audience it deserves. Might be worth streaming some of these too to help get others interested, or catapult it towards the dizzying heights of E-sports glory. I dream of a giant novelty 127,954.96 cheque and a power cube shaped trophy, so let's make it happen people!

Yeah, I think maybe rotating it would be a good idea? So next week do SUnday, then the week after Friday, then saturday etc?
