[CLOSED] Player Unknown's Batltlegrounds Community Game Nights

After several years without any community game nights we have decided conditions are right to bring them back. We have had PUBG events in mind for a few months and we are finally ready to start rolling!

Details done quick:

When is the first event?
Saturday, November 11th, 1 to 10 PM Eastern Time (US & Can)


When is the second event?
Saturday, December 16th, 6 to 10 PM Eastern Time (US & Can)


What games will be played?
For the time being we will just be hosting PUBG as we recently got into the PUBG program for communities and eSports organizations. We may eventually try to do games other games but for the time being we are going to test the waters of Player Unknown's Battlegrounds. PUBG will work well for us as it has a high max player count, is easy to organize, and can be fun for both competitive and casual players by design. If you have a game you want to see played feel free to suggest it!

When will these game nights take place?
We are targeting to host on Saturdays at least per month. Our goal is to make sure as many people can participate as possible so we'll host a series of games over several hours. Our initial events will take place from 1 PM Eastern Time to 10 PM Eastern Time, so that people from US East, US West, and Europe can participate throughout the day. We will be hosting our games on the US server cluster so pings should be decent from around the world.

How do I join in?
Our recently launched Discord will be the primary meeting place for organizing our game nights. We will have all our players join and then subdivide into relevant channels.

Will there be prizes?
We will not be prizing PUBG events until a more stable competitive scene has been established. This is meant to be a bridge between casual and competitive organized play accessible to all players. PUBG Inc (aka Bluehole) does not want cash prizing and has strict limits on hardware prizes which would make prizing difficult for an online event from a logistical standpoint.

Can I bring friends?
Absolutely. We will be using a pick up game format where you can either assemble teams out of other people participating or bring your own squad.

What kind of formats will you be hosting?
Our principal perspective will be FPP (First Person Perspective) and we will run everything from Solo, Duo, and Squad. If there are 30 or fewer people we will likely run Solo, 40 or more we will run Duo, and 50 or more Squad. We will take quick strawpolls to see what people want to play before starting individual rounds.

Do I need to stay around for the entire duration?
No, we are designing our format to be drop in friendly.

I don't have PUBG. Will the events be streamed on Twitch?
Our initial event is meant to be a dry run, but we may stream it to the OverclockTV Twitch channel. Once we setup a stable streaming team we will start focusing more on media production after all the more important operational aspects have been worked out (for example, a mechanism to track scores between games).

Feel free to ask any questions not answered above!

YAYYYYYY and awwww.

 

I'm excited game night is back, but I'm saddened that it's such a bad game. I will not be joining both due to hardware requirements and general dislike. Hopefully some other games can by cycled in as well.

 

Please, please, please don't stream it. That's what killed the last game night. Everyone was to concerned about streaming, the all important wiki brand, prizes and all that crap; completely ignoring the people trying to have a fun time playing the game. By all means, put it on the carousel, but try to get people to play the games, not watch them.

 

Question, can we be promised frick's smooth butter voice for most nights? We're still paying that man horse for something, right?

Nov 11th. Just realized I put the date on the front page carousel but not anywhere in the main body. Now I need to find a place to throw it in there. thumb.gif

Have you tried it recently? It runs much better now than it did when it first came out. You may struggle still though because you have an older GPU.

Feel free to correct me. I'm right just as often as I am wrong. Or wrong as equally as I am right at least. I dunno I could be wrong about that..

Fairly recently. My 950m runs it better than my 6970s even if I force crossfire. No one is making anything for terrascale/dx11 anymore, and it's just poorly optimised from the get go. 2gb of vram is really lacking too.

It's basically a slideshow on both my machines. And it's not worth playing at 20fps on 70% screen scale.
