that's right! BWL hereby challenges Clan TC to battle!
...the only thing is that Dreamer can only play for a little while this weekend, so the time will be up to him...
Bah! if Dreamer can't make it, i'll take you all on! (uh, Cell, Swisher, HELLLLP!)

------------------
Black Widow Lance all the way, baby!

I cannot promise anything, as my gf has me firmly in her grasp, but I'll try. Best time would probably be between sat 11pm and sun 2am this weekend. I'll be there, anyway. Somewhere. Sometime.

Why not just move the house the computers in so the comp ends up in the new spot but never really moved

Post the exact time and date. I think I can make it. Having our piano moved in Saturday, but that's my only obligation.

OK - to coord. times, and because our friend in Germany has the most restrictive schedule,
everyone plan on the 3 hours that Dreamer proposed.

one thing, though - are those GMT times, or EST, Dreamer?

as for lone wolves, i originally planned on a pure, 2-clan battle,
but i now propose to break up the 3 hours into 3 matches:

1st hour: TC vs. BWL
2nd hour: TC vs. BWL vs. DNX vs. LDA vs. ...
3rd hour: TC vs. BWL vs. (other clans) vs. LoneWolves

the only thing is that i think we need a server! i don't think that HomelanDM
allows more than 2 teams, and i'd like to control access for the first 2 hours...

BTW, coax offerred to join in on clan battles on a separate team
just to take screenshots - an official photographer, if you will..!


coordination:

1) does anyone have the ability to set up a decent server?

2) if so, make sure that clan flag files are set up on it
& players have all sets of files installed

3) if not, i suggest we pick "stock" flags and replace the files.
for instance, participants replace the "biohazard" flag with
the bwl flag, and replace another flag with the tc flag.

4) if we can arrange a private server, then the 1st 2 hours will
be spent there, and the 3rd on HomelanDM. during the 3rd hour,
we can either play it as if on teams (and try not to kill a teammate
with a cruise missile!), or do a free-for-all, like the previous DDM.

5) if we can't get a private server, meet on HomelanDM, and we'll play as if on teams
(team damage makes it SOOOO interesting!). we'll just deal with LoneWolves by:
a) try to explain that all LoneWolves are all on the same "team"
(which may be difficult to grasp for newer players), or
b) let the LoneWolves be - they will become targets & dangers to all participants.

coax - i prolly won't have time to get the "clear screen" mod ready for ya,
but i'll email it to you if i do...

sound good? anything else?
make sure you let us know the times, Dreamer!

Black Widow Lance all the way, baby!

Well, waiting for that 3rd hour is a bit past this lone wolf's bedtime, so I won't be there. Perhaps ramTHIS, with youth on his side, may partake.

if we can get the server and file right - i have no prob, DNX is pleased to accept the challenge.

however, we only have 6 members - 2 of which are tourney capable (the others only have access at work)

so as long as super unknown is up 4 it - were in baby !

ill post the dnx flag on the DMF soon as ive made one, if you or your clan has a flag, post it to me and again ill post up on the DMF.

OK - 5pm EST to 8pm EST it is!!!
be there or be square :P

keep an eye on this posting for particulars...

judging by the interest, lets make it 1 1/2 hours clans-only battle (any/all clans),
then 1 1/2 hours DDM (all invited).

can someone email all clan members? (i should be working )

I thought Dreamer was talking our time (I.E. his sunday morning)

I should be able to make that. Dunno 'bout any of the rest of TC, though. I'll see who I can drag along

very doable for me, although I'll be antsy waiting for the clan battles to end so I can jump in.

Don't know if ramTHIS will be working or not.

yup - looking forward to clan battles...
the 2nd half will be DDM free-for all, and we'll use the first 1 1/2 hours for compilation of "official" scores, to be tallied on coax's web site.


Kaeto - when you talk to RC, ask him to invite clan LDA. it'd be nice to play Saunter again! (i'm scared of Tom, though. he's GOOD!)

GoldAnt and myself will be taking screen shots, "official clan war photographers". We will devise some sort of fair ranking system, and we are already working on the backgrounds for the pages. So watch out where you point those big guns okay.

man i wish we had control over a server -
then we could put you guys on a separate team and make you special tanks that are (essentially) invisible, heavily armored, and fast! you already can remove all of your HUD graphics, except for messages (by painting the bitmaps with whatever is the alpha-channel color... black, i think)

and i love the idea of giving you a main gun that shoots nothing, but makes a little "camera shutter" clicking sound
so we all know when you're around!

so that your names don't get too much in the way during play, pls log in as "+CX+" and "+GA+" kind of like having markings of the international red cross !

See if you can get JL to run a server - he could do mods like that.
