New Game: Thursday, May 21st at 9:00 PM ET

Awesome game last night! I was not expecting to play FOUR HOURS with like 20 different players throughout but boy was I happy to be surprised! I think we ended up with like 7v7 at our peak which is totally rad. :D

Let's play again, next Thursday, May 21st at the same time (9 PM Eastern)! I don't know how long I'll be able to do weekly games, but I figure we ought to take advantage of this opportunity while a lot of us are at home with little to do.

Of course, if you prefer a different date, feel free to chime in! I'm only suggesting Thursday since it seemed to get a lot of players, and if something isn't broke then don't fix it! But if folks want to try a different date then I'm all for it. 8-)

For now, I'll be hopping in a server on Thursday, May 21st at around 9 PM Eastern... hope to see ya there!

:zapdance:

PS. I plan to still post game alerts on these forums, Facebook, Twitter and Discord... but if you're like me and prefer to receive game info via email, join this Google Group!

Totally rad!

Stats: http://bitfighter.org/stats/gamereports.php Looks like we played around 40 games in total!

Highlight of the night: There were many, but this one sticks out -- Fordcars singlehandedly beating three other teams in a four-team HTF, despite all the other teams have two players. I may have underestimated the ability of a Ford when picking out my vehicle... ;)

Team Defenders breaking the RTS map to steal a win late in the game was also pretty great.

Being oh-so-close on a couple maps: Our team, comprised of Fordcars, Skybax, Arctic, Quartz, Furbuggy and myself, taking on Santiago ZAP, bobdaduck, SirFlan, Popcorn, Spleeman, Iamp and nalegsos, losing 57-58 in a Team Deathmatch. Or Arctic literally being one ship-length from capping a flag on the asymmetrical Rockefeller Rombo to win. Brutal!

Shoutout to bobdaduck with a huge assortment of super interesting, and fun, modded maps. I'll be honest, I started a lot of them with low expectations, and I was pleasantly surprised by many of them. That weird soccer map toward the end -- Orbiton -- turned out to be a thriller. Tanz Mit Mir I thought was just some pointless free for all nexus... then walls started appearing. Mothership I thought at first was just gimmicky, only to find out there was a ton of strategy in how we attacked/defended the core. Thanks to bobdaduck for hosting and for teaching me to come into games with more of an open mind!

I know I didn't see all my old bitfighter friends... (footie :cry:) but I saw a lot and it was great to get some zapping in. I'll have to jump on the discord audio server next week!

PS. Bobdaduck has a kid now. I remember back when he was just a little ducky! What a rush.

Had an absolute blast! Thank you so much sky_lark for hosting, and bobdaducky for all the fancy levelgens. We also played a bunch of amazing classic -and not so classic- maps from a bunch of talented mapmakers. Absolutely can't wait for next week!

What is DMT? Do you mean MDT?

If you're doing your school work during the afternoon, why would pushing it earlier help? Wouldn't you want it pushed later?

I'm confused. Afternoons are like 12-5pm. Pushing it from 7pm MDT, which is in the evening, to 3pm, which is the afternoon, would seemingly directly conflict with when you are doing your school work.

What am I missing?

Anyway, game reminder: Tomorrow (Thursday, May 21st) at 9:00pm Eastern! Maybe we can adjust the time in the future, but let's stick with this time for this week since it's been posted.

By the way, I also made a little video recapping some of the highlights (and lowlights) of our game last week... Check it out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnaOgSlUFFg

See y'all tomorrow evening!
