 We're playing Bad Company 2 ALL WEEKEND!

 
We're starting now. join group chat



It's been six months since Sweep & I created the Steam group and started organizing bombing runs (Giant Bomb community runs)
For the first 4 months we played regularly and in large numbers, then we started playing more randomly and people were a little lost on when and how we play 
  
                                                                                                                                           
 

So with around 150 members now, i'm happy to inform you that i'll be scheduling events ahead of time again, and we're gonna be playing Saturdays and Sundays. 
If you haven't been checking out the Steam group, or maybe never knew existed, you can view the event page here, and join the group if you're new, so you can get my notifications through Steam.
Also, Sweep's old thread here
 
  
All you have to do is be online on Steam, i'll make sure you get an invitation to the group chatroom, and get the Ventrilo server details in order to join in on the conversation. 
We pick the servers randomly, all server info will be listed in the chatroom/on Ventrilo. 

 

Next event will be the weekend of 9th-10th of July

  
 

 
See you on the Battlefield!

No, it's more like a main stream gaming PC.

Awesome!

@mfpantst: theres usually a vent server which we use to chat with each other. In game text chat is available but the in game voice is fucking stupid.

#9 Posted by SeriouslyNow (8534 posts) -

I'll be there and so will my lovely lady.

#10 Posted by mfpantst (2574 posts) -
@No0b0rAmA: mutherfucker.  You all are talkin on mic kinda people- oh well.  Guess i'll just have to get with the times if I want to play.

:D you don't have to talk, just join the server and listen for teamwork kinda stuff. We also use the steam group chat thing if you can't get vent at all.

@Ahmad_Metallic: if theres a hundred and fifty duders on the group, it might be worth considering getting a bigger vent server, just so theres more space.

#13 Posted by IcySandman (474 posts) -

I'm in, the new laptop, BC2, and Giantbomb sounds like a cool time man.

#14 Posted by Do_The_Manta_Ray (505 posts) -

Baah, grand shame; won't be here this week-end, or the next for that matter. An over-due vacation will be keeping me busy.

But props to you for making an effort; always enjoyed the Battlefield Community. I'll gladly blow some of your brains out as a token of my appreciation once I get back. For the greater good, ofcourse.

#15 Posted by mfpantst (2574 posts) -
@roughneck117: I imagine getting vent won't be a problem- I am just averse to actually using a mic for unknown reasons.
#16 Posted by AlexW00d (6056 posts) -

@mfpantst: Not everyone chats man. I don't. I don't know why, I just prefer not. Lol.

@roughneck117: Doubt all 150 would be on at the same time. Not that I know how it is usually since I've never joined, but I'd imagine it's never been that many people at once.

#19 Posted by FirePrince (1762 posts) -

Ah, great, this needed some organization. Keep up the good work Metallic.

@AlexW00d: good- glad I'm not the only one.  Though i did like me some text chatting back in the day
#21 Posted by roughneck117 (185 posts) -

@SlasherMan: Oh no theres never more than twenty at a time I think, but even that means that some people are going to get left out.

I'm now unemployed, so with a lot more free time to be a more active participant :D

mmmm, I might have to get into vent for these next ones. I joined vent once before, but it was just really confusing. Once you get 8+ people in one vent channel everyone starts talking over each other, and when you've got people from all over the world all those different accents and dialects are overwhelming. Plus, I'm usually in a vent server talking to other people while playing BC2, or I've got a podcast or music on.

Also, (and I don't know if it's always like this) the chatter in vent usually had nothing to do with the game being played. I like my voice comms to be succinct.

I'm down for this!

Use moar skill!  No really, once you get used to the voices and names it becomes easy and fun

We talk about the game as we play, asking for help and all that, but we also discuss random shit

Based on past experienced, i've found that those times get the biggest number of people. If it's any later, the European people don't play (and half the group is European), and if it's any earlier, it's too early for americans 
 So usually it's like that (afternoon for US evening for EU), and sometimes i set them really late in Europe in order for americans to enjoy a good evening run.  
 
 
I take it that you're american and you're gonna be at work? Maybe next week we'll set them a little bit later

I cant get enough of BC2 for xbox but the 5 friends I convinced to buy it still only play black ops.

If you find there is a group that plays on xbox let me know.

#36 Posted by Seedofpower (3909 posts) -

@Ahmad_Metallic: Yeah, I figured as much. Well hopefully next week I'll be getting a new job and I wouldn't have to work on the weekends anymore.

I was about to subtly bump this up but you already did it :D

#42 Posted by cryptic_code (89 posts) -

If Vent gets full we can try steam's voice chat. I gave it whirl with a few friends in BC2 and the sound quality was nearly identical to vent's.
