Melee Meet-Up [Mid October 2009]
« on: October 13, 2009, 05:59:54 pm »

[Date]

Saturday, October 17th, 2009.


[Time]

The whole day is open for games. Two newbies from Australia have been frequenting the arena recently, so the usual estimated time of peak activity is out the window.


[Place]

#UQM-Arena on irc://chat.freenode.net. If you don't know how any of this stuff works, this thing that Gekko wrote may be of use to you.


[Guidelines]

Play how you want to! If someone else in the chat room will agree to play by your lunatic rule set then it's legitimate. Virtually everyone you meet will use the #uqm-arena standard stalemate breaker rule (that's "the faster ship is on offense" in case you aren't aware) but someone can play without that too if they find a gullible bastard willing opponent. Game mods, different fleet sizes, Hierarchy vs. Old Alliance, duplicate ships and bizarre rulesets are all on the table.

I wrote a small tutorial for firewall and router issues. I hope this helps. Tell me if you wish to include something in the tutorial.

The day isn't over, but I'm really impressed by the all the people that have passed through the arena and the games played today. This is better than I've seen all year. Switching from tournaments to the new, more flexible format seems to have done the trick.

So, we gonna post some results then? Because I lost to both Sudden and that guy from Australia (sorry, I can't remember your nick right now), but it was a bit closer than my last humiliating defeat in the tournament Cheesy

Well no, it's not a tournament. I did beat Gekko by 100+ in the mod, though, because someone forgot to bring a Kohr-Ah killer.

I was at the beach Saturday, hope I can make it to the next one.

Why not announce the next one on the PNF's board too? Regardless of what you think of that community, the more people we get in the arena the better.

Yeah, maybe. I don't have a problem with SCDB on the whole but they uniformly ignored every tournament thread I posted in the past.

Just don't .. it only proves how useless having 2 boards for the SC community is.

And when the SCDB tried opening a NetMelee board Shiver was pretty much the only one to post in it. So it's pretty safe to say that the SCDB old guard isn't too hot on playing. But there are a couple of new persons over there, maybe you'd have more luck with them?
