I updated the original post with our current admins since they apparently played this on UPF and we're getting a weird influx of people.

paging @rolyatkcinmai for inside TNT stories.

Hola. Yeah. I set up a ton of them with Ryan. I miss those days.

One time Ryan texted me at 6pm asking if he could use the BF3 server for TNT which started in one hour. I was nowhere near home. Took a huge effort and lots of the other admins to get it setup in time and I took over at like 7:30. Think we did three BF3 TNTs in total. They were good fun. Dave (Snider) and I would fuck around in jets for the ten minutes prior to TNT going live.

The Chivalry TNT was one of the best ones I did. Drew was my contact on that one. The server actually went down once, but it was right when they were finishing up Skulls of the Shogun so I told Drew to delay by 2 mins. If you watch the archive, you can't even tell there was an issue. Good stuff.

We did a TF2 MvM one at one point where the password was ericpope. Vinny was to reveal it on stream and I *assumed* it would work so when he was saying it, I said it aloud in the Giant Bomb mumble simultaneously. Of course the stream image goofed, so the password didn't go out, so the server filled with people from the Mumble. My fault, obviously. Jeff noticed on stream and called me out on it haha. My bad. I spent the entire game healing Ryan which had the unintended effect of my name being on screen for two hours. I got hundreds of Steam adds.

On the consoles, I used to join on Ryan's name before invites went out because we were friends on XBL. The TNT for the original Forza Horizon I'm in every single group of six because I'm an asshole. Same with a NFS that Jeff did.

Edit: Also, I'm the "Hey, Ryan" guy from whatever that comedy night game was for XBLIG. 11:40 here; http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/thursday-night-throwdown-111512/2300-6807/

If you're one of the ~6 people who have applied to the XB1 clan in the last 12 hours, don't worry, I'm working on it. The app is buggy as fuck and right now is error'ing out any time I try to accept anyone. Will try again later.

This seems a bit broken to me (on Xbox One - no clue if PC/Playstation are same). The app says I'm in a clan, but in the game, it's still indicating that I'm not in a clan.

You have to log into your CoD account on the XB1 before it works. Sadly right now it is spitting out a "there was a problem with your CoD account" error to loads of people (including myself).

Is this app broken? I keep trying to sign in using my Xbox login and it just sits there saying loading and doesn't do anything.

XBL is down.

Seems like it's platform specific (dumb) so I just created one on XB1. Same name.

I like that it actually looks like a sign you'd see in the northeast.

We put League of Legends on ours using the old steamdb listing when LoL was on Steam.

I also noticed two others carrying the giantbomb name. Not sure how I feel about that.

The one called "Giant Bomb" is the default Giant Bomb Steam group which is run by moderators here.

The one called "Giant Bomb PC Gaming Hub" is the Steam group run by the community and is curated by those of us who have been running it for years. In fact if you look, it says it right there in the description.

"We'll recommend multiplayer games we've played consistently in the hub or group favourites. Recs are those of the Giant Bomb community and this group, not staff of GB itself."
