The Tunnel Rats – A Casual Descent Underground Player / Org

 

TR_Logo_Medium.png

 

Though we don’t have the mechanics in the game yet for team and org play, I wanted to get a jump start and start building a roster of casual players that would like to have a low-commitment team to play DU when future tournaments and skirmishes are a part of the game.

 

I am looking to add folks that aren’t a part of an existing team or org that want to be a part of a group of like-minded players that want to fly for enjoyment, practice together, and maybe find a little glory too when team play is implemented.  New players are most certainly welcome, and I would like to see a mix of folks of different skill levels too, so we can all grow together as a cohesive team.  The name of the game is fun and building friendships.

 

Since all of this is preliminary, and we will have to shape the whole structure of the team to meet the requirements of the final game, I would like to leave an open invite to anyone that is interested to see how this organically forms.  Once the details of how team play will work, we can all confer on how best to structure the team based on both the rules of the game and the needs of the players.  As the structure forms, I will also develop and supply an org / team website, and if needed forum (hopefully we can have team forums right here on the DS board).

 

So, for those of you that want to be a Tunnel Rat, post here and tell us a little about yourself. 

 

If you don't know what a Tunnel Rat is,  check out the tough-as-nails history of the term here.

Mondays at  6pm PST / 8pm CST /  9pm EST / 2am (Tuesday) GMT - For 1 Hour
Thursdays at  7pm PST / 9pm CST /  10pm EST / 3am (Friday) GMT - For 1 Hour

I'd be interested in some casual play in a team based dynamic.

There are times you strive for greatness, to reach lofty goals and accomplish

noble deeds. Then there’s the rest of the times you just want to blow stuff up.

I'm totally down and ready for clans/guilds/corps/tagged-teams. I do hope it can be implemented in a way that supersedes just adding a tag to your name. IE: something join-able that you inherit tags/etc.. from.

I'm interested as well. I've not played as much DU lately, but having an org to provide more incentive and familiar faces may help with that. I like the name and logo!

I'm a moderate skill player. Definitely no noob, but still go 1:20 against D1 pros. Casual fits the amount of time in the evenings I have to play. Keep us posted on further details.

The mission statement reminds me of Dedmeat's Team [NuB] from Descent 3.

I was a [NuB] once upon a time. Good group of pilots, that. I wonder how Deadmeat is doing these days.

Excellent!  Welcome Aboard! :)

 

I am really excited about having a chance at some group play myself. The ability to get some folks together for a true team effort on CTC, TA, etc, will make the game so much funner too.

I am hopeful that they make the team/guild/clan/org a piece of metadata for your account like you suggest. Having space for a logo instead of just a text tag in your name is a really important part of this I think too. Hopefully the DS team will give us that too.

Interesting,  I missed out on that era of team play for the most part, just playing some solo MP D3 games here and there.

I'm game - I haven't been playing D:U much, but I would like to have some people I know to play with when the game evolves some more!

Until we see what the requirements are for tournaments and team play, it's hard to say on the commitment.  However, my intention is to make this as low-stress as possible for the members with the intention to setup practice, hangouts, and play in a way that you can come and play as you please.   The more members, the easier it is to do that too.
