    RPS & RTRS 1st Birthday: Shenanigans?

    It occured to me the other day that I've been playing Planetside 2 for over a year now.

    Both [RPS] and [RTRS], have existed in some form since ~25th August 2012:
    http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/foru...ck-Planet-Beta

    Of course, the formal outfits begin with PS2's release on 22nd November.

    So, whichever way we look at things, 1st birthdays are coming up. Seems to me like this should be recognised in some manner.

    1) Is there enough desire for an actual, proper, meetup? Preferably involving drinks. I'd be up for this. London seems an obvious choice due to connectivity, but it's hardly cheap. Any better suggestions?
    Dates for meetup? Probably not August...

    2) Meetup-or-no we should probably do something in-game to mark the occasion. Ideas?

    3) What date is the actual birthday? Does it matter?

    Yeah, thought I had mentioned that in the post. Realised I hadn't. I'd done that thing of thinking about something then thinking about doing it, but then not actually doing it...

    I'm definitely in. I would suggest aiming for november would be best as it will allow us to get cheaper train / planes tickets.

    And also much too close to Wife's birthday. (Which takes precedence...)

    I would love to come to a meetup! It would have to be a Saturday during September or so, for it to suit my schedule, I think. I could probably get away with a daytime flight over go London and one night's stay, at least if I fly home reasonably early the next day.

    For in game stuff, how about we all go throw a disco around the TR warp gate or something?

    I'm going to be a bit biased, but hey, screw it. Location wise I find Manchester a good idea. It's relatively central in the country, is nowhere near as expensive as London and has one of the busiest airports for our international compadres. Also lot's of different kinds of bars and stuff to suit everyone. Again it depends if people are planning on clubbing or not (not a massive fan myself, find me a decent pub where we can all get drunk and laugh at Grible) as to where we go but Manchester should be able to easily accomodate.

    Thats true enough. Last time I was in manchester, a 14 year old was harassing people coming out of a pizza express trying to sell them drugs. If you're willing to shell out a little bit more I guarantee you that sort of shit wont happen in soho

    Manchester would suit me pretty well (I'll not suggest you come to me in North Wales because well, it wouldn't be great). I'm always suprised by how much drinks cost in the city though.

    With it being a bit close to do something end of August, I wonder if we should go by the "offical" days. as told in game.

    End of August is too close for anyone international who'd have to fly in. That's two weeks away.

    I anything was going on at the end of august it would suit me to a T, since I'm off that week. lol. In fact I'm about to book my holidays for Novemeber at the moment. Since My birthday is the 23rd November i should be off around then as well. So either way that'd be awesome. A mini meet at the end of august for those who can make it and a main one in Novemeber maybe?

    Definitely game for another meetup, last was fun. Would be good for some other Traitors to turn up Manchester works for me, assuming I'm earning at that point (or I'm eligible for more student loan, finishing off my degree this year). I'd be cool with Birmingham again too.

    Manchester, Newcastle or Glasgow would do me. London's a bit of a pain.

    I would be game for any of that, but I'm busy on both the 25th of August and the 22nd of November.

    Someone organise a meet up some other time... preferably in Oxford :P

    It's part of the reason to get out of London.. too expensive and the education system is in the sewer.

    Of course for old grey gits like you it's perfect
