Spike, I'll probably be around and up for a game around then.

Log out of it's current server, and follow these instructions: http://newterrancommandsite.com/chatroom.html

[EDIT] Also, in order to chat, you'll have to register with the room once you enter it. Spark has a little button in the bottom right that looks like red, yellow, and blue people which is it's register button.

We used to do gaming Friday's/Friday nights. I suggest we look at doing that again. IRC is starting to become active again. Come on IRC if you want to play :)

After talking to a few people Sundays might be better as people are more likely to be home. What does everyone think?

I'd be happy to play again sometime, but the thing that always throws it off is the timezone differences.  Also, if I get in a game, I would like to request a map OTHER than pie...last time we had regular-ish games that seemed to be all that anyone wanted to play.

Very much agreed, CK9.  Pie is the most unbalanced rush-centric map ever, and I really don't understand how it ever became popular.

La Corrida is pretty good for a LoS map; it's symmetrical (a rarity amongst OP2 maps) and the ore is generally fair.  My favorite map (not counting Survivor, of course) is Fractures (LR).

In the old days, Pie was probably the best balanced LoS 6 player map.. so it was only natural it became the most played as well.
Also at that time, the rushing play style was pretty common, something which fits Pie well..

La Corrida is also pretty good, but it can occasionally leave players with only a single 1-bar rare, which is annoying. (Also, with only 1 entrance, it's either noob friendly or lacks diverse strategies - whichever option floats your boat I guess haha)

I always like LaCorr because it fits my play style better than most maps.  Having a defendable chocke point used to allow me to deal with rushers better.  I also always have liked Fractures and Root (mostly assthetically).  I don't think I have ever played on the two maps I pieced together from the campaign missions.  While I am far from happy with how some things came out on it (such as initial unit placement and ores) I would love to give them a go some time.

I really like La Corrida, it was a very popular map. Also played some great games on Fractures.

I played Pie loads but hated the imbalances with it. I think it was played so much as there was not much that was better at the time.

As per timezones.. yes it can be a issue. But first we should try and agree on a game day.. I think Sundays would be good.

I remember playing the game a long, long time ago back before it turned into a CPM race. I enjoyed fast paced combat and long time exploration and building and light combat.

Unfortunately most of the games played at OPU tend to be CPM races so I probably won't join in too many games if any (plus I tried a few here asking that they not be races and the other users would say okay and then do it anyway). But I will certainly be happy to join in for the group chats!
