Sorry, I looked at several staffers' feeds and couldn't find anything..

#2 Posted by Moncole (636 posts) -

I am also wondering. We need the server and username.

#3 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6320 posts) -

Me thinks they did not think this through.

The only way to join a specific game is to join your friend through the friends list, unless there was an update I missed.

#4 Posted by Dagbiker (6957 posts) -

Man... just put on trackmania and end and hour early ...again.

#5 Posted by Hero_Swe (1124 posts) -

Well they will probrably have us join through the friends list by adding someting like GBTNT.

#6 Posted by murisan (1119 posts) -

No, I want to get some shazbotting skitime in with the Whiskey crew.

#7 Posted by Benny (1950 posts) -

There is an in-game friendslist, which I would 99% guarantee means you will add GBTNT and be invited to a game

#8 Posted by ThreePi (61 posts) -

I kind of hoped/assumed they'd do a Tribes TNT when they made mention of the game on the Bombcast this week. And I actually called in sick today (because I kinda did feel a bit sick this morning), so hopefully I'll get in on some of this. Kinda wondering if Norm is getting in on this, I'm sure he has the most exposure to this game via his housemates.

What he said. 
 
Pretty obvious if you think about it for just a second. 
Maybe the name you add will be something else since it might be someones real user. I dunno

@Benny: We shall see. I tried.

Of course- this is all assuming they'll be sending invites out during the TNT at all. So for those who want to join them- it may all come down to luck of the draw in the server queue. (And that's assuming said queue doesn't send them into an already active game with only 1 player slot left- because the game doesn't have custom servers yet. :P )

It's entirely possible he lives in Europe (from the sounds of it, you live somewhere in North America). It's always worth keeping in mind on forums that other people can live in very different time zones from yourself.

#16 Posted by MacEG (253 posts) -

Can. Not. Wait.

#17 Posted by Hero_Swe (1124 posts) -

Well it's not GBTNT that's the username. It's not working :P

#18 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -
@Hero_Swe: I bet if they want us to join they'll tell us when it goes live (or 10 minutes before it goes live) who to add. 
 
Or we can go through the list of known Whiskey Media staffers usernames :p

Nope, I live just north of Chicago. But I work IT for a national retailer, so we generally have to be on-site until most stores close for the day. Hell, I've never even gotten to watch a TNT live. I work from home on Fridays, so I usually watch it then.

Already stated that they might be using a different name so the obvious idea is still up there ;)

He means obvious ideas for their gamertags/usernames...

#24 Posted by Dagbiker (6957 posts) -

@MacEG: What about CrazySnider? or HardcoreDave, Or LumberjackDave, or YoungSnide Or just Snide.

#25 Posted by murisan (1119 posts) -

@MasturbatingestBear: He means that he already said it might be another staffer's name. I thought it would be far from obvious since GB seems to lean far from PC except for Dave, Vinny, and Alex.

I would assume you wait until the show starts and they'll tell you. Patience, young padawan.

It's not Will, I tried AlwaysBeTesting.

Of course, I have a Phone interview at exactly 4PM PST, so I won't be able to join until after that's finished... a shame, too, since I've pretty much been playing Tribes every chance I have these past couple days.

Fair enough. I just really want to get up in some Tribes with GB. I was so excited to see it as the TNT.

@rebgav: I do not know, but sign me up if you want to start one.

Same. I've been following GB for years but yet to have been on a TNT. XD

Thats literally what I just said. Thanks!

holy crap you guys, i totally forgot it was thursday! i love when this happens!

#35 Posted by MacEG (253 posts) -

@rebgav: Second on that. VSAG all day.

#36 Posted by murisan (1119 posts) -

@MasturbatingestBear: Wat? You suggested that ZeForgotten misunderstood me, but in fact he was referencing a prior post where he listed alternative "obvious" names. I was trying to point out the fact that ZeForgotten already listed other obvious possibilities AND told me so. You're most welcome.

#37 Posted by murisan (1119 posts) -

@rebgav: Yeah, I was hoping you'd be the type. I also suck at organizing/leading.
