ABOUT SOCIAL SATURDAY:



Thanks for being a part of the Paintball 2 community!

Every other Saturday we are going to have a Paintball 2 social event, where a bunch of us hop on and play with random rosters, fill up a fun server, play hide and seek and other fun gamemodes, Etc. The main purpose of this event is to encourage us all to hang out as a community more whilst having some classic fun.

Take part by just making your presence aware in #general_chat, from  there we'll all discuss what we're going to do. Be it, filling up a pub server, starting pickup games, or trying something new!

I have been very busy lately. I am sorry about not following up on this sooner.

Let's try to get one of these arranged twice each month! Smiley

We'll try it at 1pm EST every other Saturday. (http://www.timebie.com/std/est.php?q=13

Social Saturday #1 was a success! Thank you to all 15+ players who took part. The next one will be in two weeks time. If you have any suggestions for next time, feel free to post them on the Discord or here in this thread.

We started out with some deathmatch games and then played hide and seek. After that, we finished off with a 5vs5 CTF pickup game. It was a lot of fun and many came into voice chat to take part in the laughter.

There were a few hiccups along the way trying to get the server to use the right gamemode, but next time I will be more prepared for that to avoid delays.

The next Social Saturday will take place on the 13th of October at 1pm EST.

See you next time!

Hope I can catch the next one!  October has been a crazy month.  I've barely been at home.

People are forgetting which Saturday this is on. Jitspoe suggested on Discord that we have it on the first Saturday of each month so that it is easy to know when the event is on. The schedule has been updated accordingly.

Please see the #social_saturday channel in the Events category on the Paintball 2 Discord.

Hopefully we can get some more of these going. Smiley The last one back in September was fun!

Yes! Great turnout yesterday in-game. Thanks for coming everyone. I am sorry I couldn't get on earlier.

Unless somebody wants to organize something different, this next Social Saturday (tomorrow) is just going to be a pub play day, so let's fill up the pub servers and get on the Discord voice channels and have a good time!

Another successful event today! Thanks to everyone who participated.

The event started off with some manhunt on jitspoe's new map! We then proceeded to playtest DirtyTaco's new map before playing some classic speed-server maps along with some siege!

Finally, we finished off with a fun 1v1 tournament! You can view the bracket here: https://challonge.com/ss_1v1_1

Looking for volunteers to help keep this going.

Not sure why I did that. Good find.

I am not sure when the next Social Saturday will take place, it depends on the volunteers available. I assume the next one will be 30th.
