Game Day Revival
« on: November 23, 2022, 02:43:41 PM »
Hi everyone!  We all have busy lives, making it harder to organize games these days.  To that end we're excited to announce, starting 11/30/2022, OPU will be hosting official Game Days!  The plan is to have them every Wednesday, starting at 8:00 PM Eastern (that's 5:00 PM Pacific, 1:00 AM GMT).  We recognize that people are spread out all over the globe and the time we've chosen may not be convenient for everyone; we'll keep an eye on things and may adjust the day and time based on turnout and player availability.  For now though, we're excited to see more games of OP2 being played!  Hope to see you all there!


FAQ

1) Why do we need to schedule a game night?
We're all a lot busier than we used to be, and it's a lot harder to get a "pick-up" game going now.  By having a specific time set aside, the hope is that people can plan around it and make time to keep this hidden gem of a game alive!

2) Why Wednesday night?
There's been a lot of discussion about having scheduled game days for a long time now, but the question of when to hold them has always been a roadblock.  I took an informal poll and 100% of respondents said "sure, maybe?" so Wednesday it is.

3) What maps and game types are we playing?
Whatever you want!  1v1s, team games, old-school Pie Chart meatgrinders, co-op maps, there's no wrong choice!

4) Are there any special rules for these games?
Just the usual: respect the build/attack mark if one has been set, no cheats/hacks/trainers/etc., and keep it civil!  A little in-game trash talk is okay, but don't get personal.

5) What if I've never played multiplayer?
Then ask for help!  There are plenty of people who would be happy to share their wisdom with you.  And, if you're just not interested in the idea of competitive multiplayer, there are always cooperative experiences!
