    Event Planning

    It's time for the PCPer virtual LAN party #11

    Special Message
    The Fragging Frogs have been doing this for a long time and we've been doing it all from right here at PC Perspective. Our first VLAN was back in July 2010 and our first recorded event, a Fragging Frog UT2004 tournament, was all the way back in April 2003 and we have been gaming together as a group for a few years even before that !! Kudos to all the Fragging Frogs past and present as well as the event participants for making our gaming group a success.

    You can always view a list of past Fragging Frog events (including past VLANs) and other gaming info in our Gaming Sticky Mega Thread. Be sure to check it out.

    This VLAN event will be the same basic format as our May 30 Virtual LAN party:

    1. I'll keep this first post updated with all important information so COME BACK OFTEN for the latest.

    2. Regarding the games we play it's simple - we play whatever participants have an interest in playing. That includes the currently popular games of course as well as Fragging Frog classics like UT2004 and Killing Floor. Shooters, RPGs and anything else is a possibility. We take suggestions but ultimately YOU decide what gets played in real time DURING THE EVENT.

    *** Post your game suggestions to this thread *** (I will track them in the next post of this thread)

    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 to this thread if you plan to attend this event. I will maintain a list of players below who plan to attend the event. It is also required to be eligible to win event prizes (see below).

    Event Info

    Start time: Saturday August 29 10:00 AM ET
    End time: Sunday August 30 2:00 AM ET ???

    Teamspeak RULES (** IMPORTANT **)
    1. RESPECT and be considerate of others in your channel
    2. Use PTT (Push to Talk) whenever possible
    3. Don't talk over others who are speaking
    4. When you speak try to KEEP IT SHORT (you are sharing the channel with MANY others)
    5. Join a channel in which others are playing the same game (note the name of the channels)
    6. If you need a new channel, create one yourself or ask an ADMIN for help
      (NOTE: Teamspeak Admins always float to the top of each channel)
    7. Admins reserve the right to KICK or BAN you if your behavior is inconsistent with our expectations

    How to Join us in-game

    Re: Saturday August 29 10:00 AM ET - Virtual LAN party #11

    So this time, I'm not gona stay up till 4 drinking the night before, sleep for 2 hours, then spend the whole day sucking, saying everything is fine and feeling like shit. I'm still gona be anoying as , cuz well, collie is as collie does!

    Seriously speaking tho I'm gona put in a request for the day off, I normally work a double on Saturdays now, so we see, I hope. if nothing else I'd still try to show up for some racing or rocket league at the very end, we see.

    Any new games going around I should be getting before the day?

    ROCKET LEAGUE? I'm wondering if by the end of the month the phenomenon will be past tense or still going strong.

    During that day I'd love it (if I can be there) if we play some Gauntlet, My beloved has been wanted to play that game with the v-lan-possy since she first tried it and I'm hopeing we can fulfill her want (it will be the first non poker online game she's played since the travian addiction/disaster) ALSO ...... DUCK GAME!!!!!! sooooooo fun, so quick, great game!
