no prob dawg, i was hit with that crappy flu virus as well, and am finaly getting over it. I was sick for over a week, it was nasty..... and now that i'm getting over that i went snowboarding today and dislocated my elbow, need to go get xrays tomorrow (saturday), so I will miss the night i'm sure cause i can't game as of right now. I'm sure some of the other SOGgies will be there. I will let them know.

Say guys... gals???

We plan on starting up the computers on Saturday evening. Several of the regulars are out with that ugly flu/cold bug going round so we may not have a full house?

Since I haven't had a chance to talk with the guys (been out of town) I'm not sure what they're upto as far as games and such. So, what say if I start looking on the SOG sight around 8 oclock MST (7 PST). And if you're there I'll let you know what or how we're looking for competition??? Play for an hour or two if you're up to it?

Sorry for short lead time... I'm on the road from time to time with my job and it's hard to get access to computer.

I have to get out of this house and hit the slopes myself. I've been really sick with a flu virus for the past few days, and it finally snowed here during that time. =[

The slopes are calling my name. :idea:

Not sure about this coming weekend... we are planning a ski weekend and when those come up... the LAN party typically gets put off a week.

So to answer your question... if not this weekend (still in the air)... then we'll be shooting for next Saturday the 24th.

I'll be in touch...

hahaha.... ya you guys definitely won more than one.... maybe two. =P

When's the next time your LAN crew is gonna get back together and play?

A few of our guys are anxious, because we don't fill our server up like that too often.

by Dawg73 » Sun Feb 11, 2007 11:50 am

You mean we won one??? :lol: I think I stopped counting after getting dominated too many times... :wink:

I agree... a HQ game with one of the larger maps might be interesting? But of course I'll have to give beginning tank lessons to our resident rabbits... they won't know what to do with out a Jump Button on the tanks. :D

HAHAHA... ya you picked the map that we lost on, good job soldier. :roll:

If we get a large game going again we should throw in some Base Assault as well. Get some tank action going. Also, big maps like Berlin are cool. We did play that one last time and you guys won the round Dawg, I remember because Vir2L yelled at me cuz I picked the map.....


Other large maps that are fun are Kharkov, Kursk, Rhine Valley and Foy. With maps of this size HQ would be fine.

by Vir2L™ » Thu Feb 08, 2007 10:40 am

I agree DAWG. The smaller maps turn into a run-n-gun fest with such a big crowd. Especially on the respawn game-types. I think we're gonna put more SD and RE maps on the next rotation we make, to keep the run-n-gun to a minimum.

We do a new rotation about twice a month, so we'll keep that in mind for next time.

And yes, we'd love to schedule another night. Just let us know.

Hey guys... sorry I didn't get back to you sooner... job took me out of town earlier than planned.

Yes... we all enjoyed the scrim... even the bunny-hoppers :)

My appologies if the games kind of got out of hand toward the end... more run-n-gun from our end??? Old habbits are hard to break... and the guys are competitive enough to know that we wanted to at least win one match... :roll: even if we had to resort to run-n-gun...

I'll talk with the guys about setting up another round if you guys are interested... do you guys have some medium sized maps that aren't quite so confined? I noticed that the HQ matches in the buildings tended to turn into run-n-gun due to the close quarters nature of the maps? Just a thought???

Thanks again,

Defintily had a good time, I wasn't maaaad like sparrow was tho. =P

Let us know when you want to play again, alot of our guys missed out on some great games, and would like to do it again sometime.

Hey, just wanted to say that last Saturday was maaaad fun!

Can't wait till the next one.

Looking forward to meeting you guys, please don't shoot me or my Mum will come after you

Here's a link to the maps we have on the server right now:

Put these in your uo folder, where the rest of your 3rd party maps/downloads most likely are.

BTW - We play CoD2 and Raven Shield... not so much Raven Shield anymore... not to mention the mac version isn't the same as the PC version. 7 of our guys have CoD2, we have a private 10 slot server modded very similar to our CoD:UO server.

by Dawg » Thu Feb 01, 2007 8:44 am


We'll plan for this Saturday night then - Feb 3.

I'll get the guys to read the SOG rules and mod list so they are familiar with the game play... and I will have the discussion about bunny hopping.

Teaming shouldn't be problem... we're pretty good on kicking each others butts from a teaming perspective when we load our LAN to play against each other... I've just been real curious to see how we'd play together??? So this will be fun... might be comical too... lol

Let's keep it casual and fun... I do know the guys do like seeing their names in lights and comparing their respective scores... we do have our own internal rivalries and match up's here too... so scoring will be a plus.

Whatever maps and games are stock will be fine... speaking of such... does your SOG site have the map packs ready for downloading? We could preload the maps on our machines to speed up the process. Otherwise we may be a bit slow on some of the maps during changes???

I'll plan on dropping into the SOG site on the hour and half-hour as time gets close to give you guys an indication on our status and numbers... (probably starting about 6:30 or 7 pm MST)... we have to make our run to the grocery store for our munchie table and beverages set up first... we do have our priorities... :P

We'd share but the food might be a bit cold by the time it reaches you?

We do have a mix of ladies and gents that play... Rox makes a mean chocolate chip cookie... yum Players will usually switch out later in the evening as some of the late arrivals come in and early risers head to bed... So you'll be playing a mixture of players and not always the same crew. My eleven year old son will be there too... he's the one we all have to watch out for and he's not one of the run-n-gunners... those tend to be the college guys with the console games at home... lol

Look forward to the game...
And thanks again,
