    December 28th: Xmas party with [PCG]

    [RPS] have been invited to an Xmas party by [PCG]


    December 28th, time tbc



    Details to be confirmed soon. The main idea is that it revolves around a 'show match' of some kind where we face off against each other. PCG have asked some TR friends along for that. Prior to that there may be some games (such as knife fights etc.). Exact details to be confirmed.

    This is largely a 'date for your diary' post. I'll update it as things get confirmed. I'd like it if [RTRS] were formally invited too (though take this as an invitation to crash anyway...), and will run that by Jakhara next time I can.

    Sounds like another RPS/PCG event where RPS turn up and so does the entirety of TRAM (or TRAC these days?) who continues to beat our faces in for the entire evening because there are 16 of them to our one.

    That is exactly my worry...
    If it's fun things like races/knife fights it's probably no big deal.
    If they want a proper battle then we may need to be a bit careful!

    This needs to get arranged and I'm not in a position to do that.

    I wouldn't worry about TRAC numbers; PCG approached us about this in a desire to provide a fun event over xmas and are entering into it in that spirit, they're just worried that we'd outnumber them by a large margin so may invite some friends to help them. I don't know what PCG's current regular numbers are, so their fears may be warranted.

    I am away from PS2 & regular forum access until the 24th, so

    Can someone please step-up to volunteer to get this arranged?

    PCG Contact points are:
    HelsAngel who has an account on these forums and can be contacted via PM
    AND / OR
    Jakhara in-game

    What needs to be arranged:
    * Start time
    * Event activities (see below)
    * Involving RTRS


    On the activities:
    Is this just gonna be a friendly knockabout where we scrap over a base or are we gonna try and arrange some fun events? I think a knockabout makes sense as the core activity, but something a bit more fun to end with would be nice.

    On this I think it's be really nice to have some kind of multi-faction 'silly monday' type thing where we can setup last-player-standing knife fights, sky whale wrestling etc. At the same time, something like that might be too messy / confusing with too many players and no shared comms. Run it be Hels / Jakhara and see what they think.

    Would be great to fit in some party games as it is a party, last player standing knife fight, sky whale wrestling is just the sort of thing I had in mind (similar to your RPS vs RTRS event). And then we might as well have a knockabout over a base whilst we are at it. Just need to sort out a start time, would evening be best? May need some time just to let everyone log on? What order do we want the events to take place? Also we use mumble for our outfit comms, should we get some comms set up for platoon leaders? Or will in game chat box do?

    We need to finalise these things soon as it's getting close! Thanks

    1) Evening is best. We tend to pick up numbers in the 7-9 bracket, so getting going around 7-8 is a good time to aim for. I don't know what times are good for PCG.

    2)Agreed about having a scrap/silly events mix. In terms of order - start with something quick and fun, like the knife-fight, since it doesn't require any vehicles to be pulled/organised. Add in anything else that doesn't take much prep time, if you like, such as the pistol duelling thing we did once.

    Then try some sky-whale wrestling. This will presumably drain air-resources of the participants, and as such seems a reasonable time to maybe infantry scrap over a base. Somewhere reasonably empty. It's unlikely we'll play seriously, and will probably do silly gambits like All LA squads or All Infil squads or something to keep it light.

    I'd recommend ending on some sort of race. It has a sense of finality to it, I think. Harassers are the best choice for speed, Sundies for silliness. Flashes are fun, but break too easily .

    3) In-game chat should be OK for setting stuff up, but if you want to communicate, our Mumble information is on the forum/website, and we have spare channels we can move to for PLs.

    Note - I'm pretty much terrible at admin, and am not exactly accepting responsibility for RPS side of things. These are simply suggestions to get the ball rolling.

    Oh jeez, get to their forums or mumble, or get them to our mumble and discuss, this over pms won't help anyone.
    Hear from the spirit-world this mystery:
    Creation is summed up, O man, in thee;
    Angel and demon, man and beast art thou,
    Yea, thou art all thou dost appear to be!

    This. Just go talk to Hels or Jakhara. Infinitely easier... They use Mumble so you've got it damned well installed.

    It's Friday so have a chat with RTRS and see if they wanna come to the party.

    Edit: For idiot-proof sake here are [PCG]'s Mumble details.

    Hi guys, firstly thank you for taking us up on the offer of coming to our Xmas party, I hope it will be fun for all.

    Right then how about this as a penciled in plan?

    19.00-20.00: Get people logging on from 19.00, maybe see who can shoot the most snowmen to past the time whilst leaders organise when and where we will meet for the first event.
    20.00 meet up for 'party games'- knife fight, max punch fight, sky-whale wrestling (maybe others, but you get the idea)
    approx 22.00 we want to be arranging to have a light hearted base battle. I like Fish Food's idea of having "All LA squads or All Infil squads or something to keep it light."
    Lastly: A
    Harasser race accross the map

    Hi all,
    As there appears to be no strong objections we will use the 'pencilled in' plan as a guide. Obviously this will need to be adaptable to the night, if we are ready to start the first game earlier then lets do it. At least we all have a general idea of what the plan is. Thanks again and see you there!

    SOE are doing maintenance at 11.00pm (GMT) so if possible I'm trying to move the xmas party an hour forward, so start logging on from 6-7. Thanks

    Can whoever's on from 5-6 get in contact with Jakhara / PCG and get this sorted out (suggest you just go and join their Mumble and say hi); I may not be able to make tonight.

    I'm probably going to be on most of the day, however I'm probably not the best person to sort this out.
    If I do end up having to do it what do we have to sort out?

    I'm off dancing tonight, so I can't do it. Would have been fun to do it if not for that, though.
