OK, so DDM is all well and good, but for all of those that play TM on their work comp. because it's faster and has DSL, (I'm not alone here right guys?..... guys?.....)

But yah, for a while people where getting together on wed. and playing. But that kinda fell appart, now it's kinda disorganized. Is it a common interest to specify a certain day of the week to play?

It just isn't the same to frag AIs.

I usually look for a game almost every night, somewhere between 5 and 8 pm Eastern.

There's usually a bunch of guys online, but as you say, there hasn't really been anything formal mid-week for awhile.

I was the one that got Wed things going.Then I got busy in school and Wed became my homework day.Never had very many people attend anyway.I think the people that did come were coming to play a game and didn't know anything about it.You may have better luck then I did.Are you talking about something during the daytime?While you are at work?

I play almost every night. Didn't we have Wed night the CTF night and Sunday's was DDM. Maybe we could set it up that way. Two teams to make it easy to find the flags

Thats my 2 cents worth.

We did everything Wednesday nights except for straight up DDM.I didn't want to take anything from Sundays.You could even through in a race to make A1800 happy
You really have to get out there and drill it into peoples' heads if you want them to show though.

If you see a server and want one - even temporarily - just ask me and I can whip one up.

Or ask WM but in this case he's already has 2 running and the bum is camping. Got enough time to camp and spend quality time with his other buddies but not enough time to play treadmarks. GEEZ!

guido - have you considered placing the "guido the mercy killer" bit in your signature? Would probably save you a lot of typing

yah I don't have a server up, but Paranor, if you want that responsability, then good. I personally never play ddm due to the afore mentioned problem, so yeah I'm down with doing it once a week.

Since I started the thread I will follow the path of least resistance and say wed. @7:00 PM EST ctf and maybe race ( I hate racing, I'm sooo bad, but I'll do it iff everyone wants). I guess it's really up to Par, since it's his server.

How's that?

Also, how to get it into people's head's?

cheers

or we could use WM servers... I like both, so it really doesn't matter. Par, do you know if WM will be checking this at some point before wed?

Advertise advertise advertise Start a new thread annoucing it and try to keep it bumped.Then it helps to have a ton of ICQ players in your ICQ contact list so you can see who's on ICQ and invite them before it happens.
Good luck.I'll do the first campaign if you want me too...by this Wednesday?

Yep
I will be putting up one if not both of Sundays DCTF servers today(mod maps on both). You can use them for Wed if you wish - only thing is the message will be off. An advantage of Par hosting is that he can make the server message read "DCTF Wed at 8 ....." Maybe even have it be a DDM so ppl are not burned out on CTF by Sunday.

Hey Par- You know I miss TM and giving you guys beatings - why else would I keep serving. It is hard not to play (even harder now that I fianlly got DSL!) but I just can't. I can set up a server in about 15 minutes, but I can't play for only 15 mins . On a positive note, my research has be picking up and the Weathergirl is much happier with me lately (nudge-nudge, - ). I assure you I am trying to finsh my research as quickly as possible so I can devote some time to playing this addictive game.

This is the problem, I don't have ICQ here... I am an AIM type of guy, BUT, Supe, you're hired! I hereby encommend you with the task of presenting innocent bystanders for me to frag tomorrow. Is the time ok (7 PM)?
Thanks for the post WM, I think we'll use Par's server for now.

Yeah, so I'll start a new thread telling people to come on over. Let's hope for good turnout.

Thanksgiving is Thursday but you're right...it still might effect the number of players since I know people have meals on days besides Thurs.
