Pickup Channel @ IRC

Post by MrsKsr »

A few of you know about this.. There used to be a channel on IRC wherein you could have pickup games by adding up and having team captains..

epsy closed it cause there was little or no interest after a while.. Just wondering if it were to start up again how many people would idle in the channel and actually take part in the pickup games..

Let me know :)

Will people be banned over personal issues again?

I'd rather #armagetron be used as the pickup channel. No need for a separate channel, imo.

Hm, well, I vote no if the same people are in charge. Yes if other people host it, and yes if the people who are in charge now can remain unbiased.

fyl,not ours :) thanks for the vote.

Side note..
Rule #1 ~ if you leave a match without a good reason (i.e ragequit) you get a 1 day ban. Take that as unfair if you wish but that's how it works in other games.

I actually agree with that rule, its pretty annoying when people sign up and then don't show/quit in the middle of it.

I'm not very fond of bo3, but we could propose both and see what players like.

An alternative might be 20-minute-long matches with an appropriate scorelimit.

But really, 12 players aren't enough at all :/
