    I guess that the server you'll be playing on will be hosted in the US, right?

    We haven't determined exactly what we're going to do for a dedicated server. Ideally, we'd like a TechSpot member to host the gathering. If that's not possible we will look into renting a server, in which case it will probably be US-based.

    If anyone happens to have a server set up and is willing to host the event, please message me.

    I'd love to play with you.
    My Steam name is Reloader2 and I just joined the group.

    The 8th of May I will be celebrating my birthday but I live in Denmark (GMT+1) so I might be able to play I don't really know what time it will be here then 9 PM according to my calculations.

    Team Fortress 2 seems like a good idea. Other games could be
    Call of Duty 4. (Always good)
    Bad Company 2. (My clan has a server we might be able to use)
    Half-Life 2 Deathmatch. (Very cheap)

    I would really like to be in, I'll do my best to be availble on this exact time and I hope that if I had the opportunity to be gifted the game that there will be other gaming get-together's like this :)
    The only online game I can recommend is Quake Live, or any other similar open-source like Open Arena
    I've installed Steam and joined TS's group

    I do not have TF2 but I heard a lot about it and it would be great if I can have it, in fact I'm really interested to because a couple of friends have been nagging me to get it, but payment options from Egypt is so 1997'ish :D

    I'm in! I play TF2 quite a bit so I'm looking forward to this. With all the Left 4 Dead 2 sales lately, I think it'd be a great idea to play that!

    I just joined the TechSpot group. Name is CyruS JumpjeT.

    Hi,

    My name is Sunny, and my steam tag is Xplicit.
    My steam account name is achahal08 so you guys can add me.
    I am active in many games on steam.
    I have the following:
    -Team Fortress 2 (since release) (i consider myself mid-high)
    -Modern warfare 2 (fun :) )
    -Starcraft 2 BETA

    Those are the games i am most active in, and most fun for me.

    I am a interested in this gaming get together as i do play pugs and scrims on tf2. I have created a clan named Comrades and was a strong team for a year. Then everyone had to go do real life things and since then i been playing other games. I still have my skills as i do play now and then. :D

    i have vent and mumble.
    Hope to c you may 8 around 5pm :D

    Primary gaming machine is down :( - Gonna see if I can handle playing on a secondary gaming machine for this event.

    Bummer LNCPapa :(. Any idea what the issue is?

    By the way guys, it looks like we only have one eligible person for the free copy of TF2 (correct me if I'm wrong). In other words, if you don't own the game but want to join us on Saturday, your odds are pretty good at getting a free copy if you make yourself known ;).

    I think the video card died - haven't had much time to troubleshoot, but I'm 75% certain that's the prob.

    We'll be gifting TF2 to Serag and Archean (he confirmed in private chat that he doesn't have the game). Expect to receive your games in the next few hours. If you don't, feel free to message me.

    Guys, its not me but the game is 2 days away and a server hasn't been announced?
     
  18. Matthew

    Matthew TechSpot Staff Topic Starter Posts: 6,094   +86 Staff Member

    :) The server was purchased last night. It will be configured and tested today and tomorrow. We will announce the server during testing so folks can join if they want. The information will be posted here as well as the TS Steam group page, no worries.

    Alright, the server should be up! I hopped on for 5 minutes to make sure everything seemed functional. If you have any issues or suggestions, feel free to message me.

    You certainly can -- though, there probably won't be anyone else on it.

    The rotation should be default.
