Hello again Descent 3 pilots, 
I remember playing a CTF game with the VEX clan last year in Abend 2. It's an interesting level to play CTF in and I thought it would be fun to play it again! How 'bout it?
 
Date: Friday, June 17th
Time: 9:00 pm EST
Place: CTF in Abend 2
 
I think I should also mention that many of us like to meet on Mumble in the Descent Rangers channel, and whoever plays is more than welcome to join us!
Link to download Mumble: http://mumble.sourceforge.net/
Link to get to the channel: mumble://mumble.descentrangers.com:31393
We don't always use it strategically; sometimes it's just to taunt each other and have fun. But it makes it easier to keep track of what is going on. :)
 
These games can be found using the Descent trackers (such as http://www.descentse...?show=d3_server), but I will also provide IP addresses later on.
 
Please let me know if you plan to make it; I like having an idea of how many pilots are coming so I can lure more pilots in with the numbers. ;)
 
This invite is being posted on the Descent Champion's Ladder forum, the Descent Bulletin Board and the Descendent Studios forum.
 
Thanks goes to Krom for hosting the servers for us!
 
LET'S PLAY SOME CTF! :)

Well I didn't get lost but I still feel I am not being an efficient asset of the team.

Did *behemoth! play last night? LEON and behemoth on the same day. A cusp is comming.

Krom thanks for the great server.

Lady Silver thanks for making it happen.

Mickey1, thanks for coming! And, you're welcome! :)
You know, when I had your team's flag and had to duck from one tunnel, through the main room, and into another tunnel several times, I had this thought in the back of my mind "I hope Mickey isn't in the main room with his vauss again." You repeatedly spotted me trying to run and would send a hail of bullets after me, causing a good deal of damage. Your vauss is very dangerous! Now I understand your sign-off. wacko.png
 
As far as Behemoth goes; Birddog is Behemoth's brother. It looks like Birddog accidentally joined under his brother's alias and then quit and rejoined with his own.
And I'm not sure I know who LEON is?
 
Anyways-
We had a good game Friday night! A total of 7 pilots showed up to fly the mines this time, which was definitely enough for an intense game of CTF. The first game was cut short by the server timing out, but we played the second game through to the bitter end; with the enemy (red) team claiming victory by a fair margin. Well played, guys!
 
With Independance Day weekend coming up I'm not sure when the next game will be. Perhaps July 8th.
 
I'm running out of good ideas for levels/mods to play - If you have a request, please let me know!
 
See you in the mines!

Abend 2, isn't that level prone to all the invisible secondary explosions? (napalm frag etc)

Hunter, I have not noticed any problems on the DRH server.  Ari's Stable2 is good for me too.

I do try not to notice any problems that gets in the way of the fun. "All Good I'm dancing in the sky in a frackin' spaceship". In Ari's Abend2 there was some warping for one player. It hurt him more than other players. The complaint about Abend2 to me was it has way too many secondaries and vauss ammo. This load out gives B Team players a fighting chance against the Globetrotters. No MD takes it off the list for some. I love it. The Big Room is nice for dog fighting and poaching. Most  tunnels are big enough to dance in.

 

 

vauss you later.

Yeah I know all about Abend 2. I played it a few times in the past, and I like certain aspects of it, but as I recall it had (as you say) too many secondaries and this lead to a lot of invisible spawns. Well it might not affect someone with  <100 ping. The invisible secondary issue becomes more apparent at 150+ and ridiculous at 250+ (which is one of the reasons I don't play anymore since leaving Europe, as all servers are 250+ for me) smile.png

Ouch. Over 100 hurts me. Krom's server is the best for me now at around 35. I get around 150 to Descentforum .net.

Have you tried to find any local players? I might have to move to Alaska. I will try to find some targets. What's your ping to Alaska?

Lady Silver, LEON coached mental floss. He is #3 on the d3stats site.

Probably 250 to Alaska. I've never seen any lower. It's likely because Korea doesn't have a direct connection to the ocean cables, it has to pass through somewhere else first. Ping times and connection speed usually are REALLY bad to any server outside of Korea, tbh. Back in the UK I used to get about 100-150 ping to East coast servers, and 30-60 to Europe.
