Ok, so the last couple game days have been near complete blow outs (from what I hear) first I want to say I am sorry I was not there for the 8th but I was stuck at a friends house for most of the day in a Level 3 snow emergency (only allowed to drive if it is a emergency, otherwise you can be arrested). I think we should take this coming Saturday off so we can take the time to sort stuff out with the server and ensure that the next gaming day is more organized. Here are some things that I think really need to get worked out: Admins on site for game day. Every single game day we have done has been plagued by technical issues that only an admin can clear up (server updates, maps crashing servers, server not ready with the correct rotation, ect...) Exactly what servers we are going to play on. Due to the technical issues we have just said, "We will find a server at the last minute if there is a problem" I think we need to have a detailed plan for a backup server. What should we do for our European gamers. They are at least 5 hours ahead of us timezone wise and the Atlantic adds at least a 100ms ping to everyone. What do we want the goal(s) of game day to be? Here are my suggestions, but I would like to hear from everyone else what they think. This is really up to DrPepper since the official TF2maps.net server is his, and as such I think we should wait to here his position on this. I know in the past Youme, LittleMissPkunk, BladeRoden, and HexCrimson have all pulled through for us, I think we should decide who wants to be the backup source each game day and have them put the designated rotation on their server ahead of time. If DrPepper decides the server expense is not worth it I think we would be able to keep this going with just the support of our members. Possibly create a list of our members / members servers / server location / server IP address. I think the best idea for this is to have one of our members that has a European server to start the game day off at 4:00 PM GMT (11:00 am EST, 8:00 am PST). From 4:00 PM GMT - 9:00 PM GMT (4:00 PM EST, 1:00 PM PST) the game day will be held on the European server. Then at 4:00 PM EST we can move direct everyone to join the USA server (preferable TF2Maps.net's server) and we will stay on that server for the rest of the night. As for what the goals of the game day should be, I think that it essentially should be whatever maps people want to play. If you want to play a Valve map, so be it, if you want to play an early pre-alpha map, so be it as well. Even if you want to play an Orange map, so be it (although, you might get lynched by some of our more zealous members) So, those are my thoughts on the matter, anyone else got ideas, comments, suggestions, rants, tirades, verbal diarrhea?
