Given it's not a friend's wedding (which isn't until June), or New Years (which isn't until... well, you know), then I can probably make it. :)

Why is it that when someone starts a thread.... it goes off topic real fast?

It doesn't bother me if it's just a question or comment, but you guys go on and on like as if you where in a chat room. :roll:

Can't you guys stick to the topic?

This is a forum guys! Stick to the topic so that people don't have to read through the ramblings of posts just to find out what they are looking for! :evil:

If we can get DH this time, I propose me and him versus everyone else. At the same time.

It has been quite a long time since I played any Descent game in multiplayer at all. We're probably talking three years or more. Not that it's ever made a difference in past.

I'm usually available Friday or Saturday. It's the busiest season of the year at work so I'm not taking time off for this, but I can manage an early or late game either end of the day.

Hmm. I forgot that the scales kind of broke in Descent; for the team with more numbers to get more kills, the team with less would have to be dying all the time. Unfortunately, that doesn't really happen, even if they do die more often.

We could at least make it CTF to make things more interesting - but you'd really need something more like UT's Domination to have the intended effect. It's quite difficult holding ground against more numbers.

I think my backpack is big enough to carry that many people against you guys ;P Just kidding... I have been getting better though!

If you're reading this, and you've never played Multiplayer before, I highly recommend you come to these events. They're so much fun!

I tried setting up a video stream at the last game, but it turned out it still kills my framerate at that kind of resolution. Annnd... I don't really like playing D2 at low resolutions.

But maybe I can record demos next time, then encode them and upload them to YouTube or something. Not enough videos of D2 multiplayer up there anyway, and I'm sure some people would like to see how I manage to aim and tri-chord at the same time. I'm not entirely sure myself.

What about Team hoard? (Or does it require D2: Vertigo?)
We live in a universe... It's distracting
