Now that it released, how about we make a team?

#1 Posted by Rattle618 (1504 posts) -

I´ve played about 4 hours of this game during the invitational and I must admit I am not great at it, like most moba games it has somewhat of a steep learning curve and requires time before you get the hang of it (although it is not nearly as bad as any other moba I´ve played, with SMNC I actually have fun playing).

What I was thinking was: lets get together and play a ton of this game until we get good at it. The learning process will be faster and more enjoyable if we do it in a group.

To be clear my objective is not make some kind of guild for this game, only to put together a group of individuals who will always play together. If there are a lot of people interested maybe we can form more than one team I guess.

Let me know if you are interested here or through steam (my ID is the same as here).

I can never remember how the Steam ID thing works, is it my login name or the name that appears on the URL to my Steam profile?

Well, I think my Steam ID is calculated_b and I'd definitely be down, especially since I just got my new supercomputer complete with stable internet.

We've had Super MNC gamenights as part of our PC Gaming Hub for a couple of months now. @Mosdl is the officer in charge of SMNC so I think he'll be doing something about getting a launch duder shindig going, and of course we use our mumble voice server while playing.

@AhmadMetallic: Yeah I know about that stuff, that´s why I said Im just looking for 4 other dudes to always play with and not a sort of guild. But I will ask around mumble too.

I have played a fuck ton of SMNC (over 200 hours) so if you need to learn the game I can definitely help with that. Feel free to add me on Steam (joeq1159)

#8 Posted by Rattle618 (1504 posts) -

@joeq1159: Awesome, I just added you. It´ll be good to have someone around who knows what they are doing.

Im working on a guide to the game that I'll post in the forums. I was going to wait until the game was released, but it seems like everything happened sooner than i expected.

#13 Posted by joeq1159 (128 posts) -

What class are you guys looking at playing?

#14 Posted by Rattle618 (1504 posts) -

@quicklookman: I´ll add you so we can do some killing.

@joeq1159: Im becoming more and more interested in Leo, he is good at moving bots along and can heal some... I do not like tanks cause I suck balls at them. Do you have any suggestions?

#15 Posted by joeq1159 (128 posts) -

@Rattle618: Oh man i really love Gunner. Once you get a level up, everything in front of you just dies. It's so awesome!

#16 Posted by Sait0u (20 posts) -

Hey all, I've been playing SMNC for a while too, and really like it, but I'm having a hard time winning without some people to play with. I'd love to get in some games with the GB community. I regularly play Tank, which I feel the most comfortable with. I'm okay with assault and cheston. Can find me on steam at Sait0u. (That is a zero in there)

#17 Posted by Omnomnivore (2940 posts) -

If anyone would like to play some games together send me f-invite at ck1nd. I've really taken a liking to the game and can play at any time most of the day :)

#18 Posted by Arker101 (1484 posts) -

I just started playing today, but I think I'll be a competent player soon enough. I'm on the steam group that @mosdl: made, but my steam ID is "Arker101"

#19 Posted by mfpantst (2651 posts) -

I'm in. I think my user here is my handle there, mfpantst. I like the stupid monkey so there.

#20 Posted by Sayishere (1852 posts) -

Add me on steam = Sayishere if you wanna play, im pretty good tank and support :)

This game could use some easier "invite group to come play" functions.

#22 Posted by Chim21 (21 posts) -

Add me.

Steam id: Chim21

#23 Edited by SuperWristBands (2281 posts) -

I need some people to play with. I played two games today and lost both. They weren't swift losses either. Lasted like 20-30 minutes but at no point did it ever look like we had a chance.

I've posted that on the smnc forums that we need the ability to invite from steam groups.

#25 Posted by StarvingGamer (9078 posts) -

Apparently I am godlike at this game. Started playing today and by my third match I was 1st on my team going 18-1 with 50% more bot kills than anyone else and was only one shy of being top for assists.

Or maybe Combat Girl is imba.

Same here but I think its matching people by level so we are going up against casuals still.

#27 Posted by Brodehouse (10513 posts) -

Me and some duders made a premade and just merced fools for an hour. A lot of matches the opposing team didn't even get a kill.

But yeah, need a way better friends list. Game doesn't even tell you who is playing SMNC, just gives you everyone online.

I'm Brodehouse on Steam.

#28 Posted by MrSlapHappy (209 posts) -

Hopefully, I remember to check this thread when I get home from work so I can get in on this. I enjoyed the first MNC, but never got very good or...according to Steam put more than 8 hours into it. At the time, I was still pretty hardcore into TF2 and it just felt like a MOBA TF2 to me so it was hard to justify putting in the time on something so similar. Now...maybe now is my time!

#29 Posted by HelicopterSpy (160 posts) -

I've played a few games, just joined the Steam group. I really love using Cheston, though I can get away with any damage dealing class . HelicopterSpy there too, if you want to add me. Maybe it's guetecher, I'm not sure which name you actually search for.

#31 Posted by Heartagram (1288 posts) -

IF you guys want to play some let me know I have like 0 steam friends so I'd love some people on there =D


#32 Posted by Brodehouse (10513 posts) -

We need a better system. Trying to get a duder pre-made together is a ton of effort when it should be simple.

#33 Posted by joeq1159 (128 posts) -

It's too bad the game doesn't show you which of your friends are in a match and who's looking to get invited. That would help.

#34 Posted by FlipperDesert (2135 posts) -

My username is FlipperDesert and my preferred class is Megabeth, I'm level 17 and seem to be my team's MVP a lot.

#35 Posted by RecSpec (4613 posts) -

Mine's RecSpec, I mainly use Megabeth. Still learning

#36 Posted by Moleh (37 posts) -

Should start using the groups chat room to easily find others to play with.

#37 Posted by GunslingerPanda (5030 posts) -

Username is GunslingerPanda, I play a sick gunner. EU server.

#38 Posted by Tuppence (16 posts) -

Are folk actually playing together from here then? I'd love to join you guys - I'm level 17, and awesome with Karl the robot.

I play on the EU servers, but i'd have interest in joining some americans for a bit of fragging. Add me if you're interested.
