    Event Planning

    It's time for the PCPer virtual LAN party #14

    A Brief History of Fragging Frog Events
    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 in 2010 and our first recorded event, a Fragging Frog UT2004 tournament, was all the way back in April 2003 !! 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 July 9, 2015 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, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and Dino D-Day Shooters, RPGs and anything else is a possibility.
    YOU decide what gets played.

    *** Post your game suggestions to this thread ***
    I will track them in the next post of this thread. I've started the list with popular games from past VLANs.

    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 October 29 10:00 AM ET
    End time: Sunday October 30 2:00 AM ET or when the last gamer drops

    Teamspeak (ALL players should join)

    Brandito's TeamSpeak 3 Server - ts3.fraggingfrogs.com (Password: fragbait)



    NOTE: Our Teamspeak server is online 24/7. In addition to VLANs we also use it for daily gaming so feel free to stop by any time you're in the mood to game or even just chat.

    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
    Some games like Battlefield 4 depend on following players into a server.
    Here are links to threads of Origin/Battlelog and Steam and Battlenet user names for many of our members.
    If you send friend requests to the top few you should be set.
    Feel free to send those friends requests in advance of the VLAN event.

    Quick Start: Send a friends request to me, FFLenny on Origin/Battlelog and fflenny on Steam.

    Where? I will miss out on an Intel LAN in Castle Rock, CO on the same weekend. I found out to late to register for the BYOC & didn't want to get on the wait list. I am planning to visit the LAN on Friday, as I live pretty close.
