It's time for the PCPer virtual LAN party #5
It's going to be the same basic format as our last virtual LAN party (over 2 years ago). The date is Feb 22 from 10 AM to 2 AM (eastern time)
Btw, you can view a list of past Fragging Frog events and other gaming info in our Gaming Sticky Mega Thread. Be sure to check it out.
This is a summary of the format. Of course we are open to suggestions for change.
1. We normally choose a few games that there is a common interest in playing starting with our favorites like Battlefield 4 then adding additional games. Fragging Frog classics like UT2004, Left 4 Dead 2 & Alien Swarm are always solid alternatives if we need a change. Post your game suggestions to this thread.
2. Set a Saturday date for the event. We will try to select a date that works for most people. Please discuss dates in this thread. On the day we select the event will run from 10 AM ET to whenever (usually 1-2 AM ET).
3. I'll keep this first post updated with all important information. See below for starters.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be NO set start/end times for particular games. All that will be decided in real time over TEAMSPEAK. So you are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to join TeamSpeak for this event even if you have never joined in the past. Although we attempt to update this thread with the current game being played it doesn't always happen so if you are not on TeamSpeak you may get lost and lose track of what's going on. The TeamSpeak server info is listed further down in this post.
Please post if you plan to attend this event. I will maintain a list of players who plan to attend the event.
