View Full Version : The RPS? Hockey? League!

Gentlemen and gentlewomen!

As you may be aware, the Hivemind recently took note of a game named Hockey?

THE LINK (http://crypticsea.blogspot.com/2011/06/hockey.html)

This game, as it turns out, is bloody fantastic, having played it with some jolly RPS persons. Therefore, the logical thing to do would be to create a league, for super happy internet hockey funtimes in an organised manner, with teams and other lovelies like that.

But before any grand plans come together, a number count of how many would be interested would be excellent.

So, who would want to engage in ridiculous fun? As if I need to ask.

Cheers!

I cunningly put the link in the name of the game, "Hockey?". Now that I think about it, that was a bloody awful idea, I'll do a quick edit tomorrow when I'm not tired :P

Looks like they use the mousewheel as a reasonably important control in this? How badly would I be affected if my mousewheel doesn't scroll properly?

It would make dribbling and general control harder, but it wouldn't be unplayable.

It's slightly more difficult to shoot and dribble and suchlike, but it's by no means game breaking.

Hey Ho. I'm in. Been playing a few days, getting pretty good. Just need cool people to play with, and I think an organized league would be great!

On an aside, I'm Nim. Nimmy Nim Nim. That is all.

Wow, wtf, why did I not look into this game earlier? I saw this post, I knew that Egg and others in RPS chat had been playing it, but I didn't actually look up the game. This looks awesome, I'd definitely be down to play.

So who wants to actually organize a league?

Teams.

Games.

Tournaments.

Could be fun.

Yes. definitely.

Just played a few rounds, this game would be bloody excellent with Mumble. Some kind of league would be lovely.

It's in our unofficial community mumble server. (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/forums/showthread.php?533-Unofficial-Community-Mumble-server)

[EDIT: this is outdated info! connect to server.herosquad.org. No password/standard ports]

Sit in the channel when you're playing, and if someone else shows up they can join you for VOIP-ized hockey? action!
That, or spam the RPS steam chat that other people should be playing hockey?.

Hey guys, signed up to the forum for this game. I'm hanging out on Mumble, and I also set up an IRC channel - #hockey on irc.synirc.net. It would be incredible to do some league games (or just some mumble/ventrilo games).

Someone needs to make a thing for Mumble's positional audio for this game very very badly.

Just played some more, we definitely need to organize an event sometime soon, so lots of us can show up and play at once.

We should set up a couple of dates for try-outs. Maybe figure out some team captains. Try to get this ball rolling. Etc. Etc.

I realize this thread is ancient, but we're starting up regular Friday night games to get more people playing again. 8 Central Time every Friday. Server is US, but we'd love to get a European server up too.

Awesome, Cryptic Sea has said they'll try to play on Friday as well. Should be a good match.

I realise I'm pretty late to this party but is anything Hockey? related still going on? Because I absolutely love this game.

I'm even later to this response, but yes. US hosted games today and probably tomorrow. Still bickering about what time works best for everyone.

Alternatively if you live close enough to Russia, there's a Russian server that's up 24/7 with a pretty dedicated community that organizes tournaments and such. Alas ping is still a huge factor in how well you can control the puck.
