NOTICE: I (DEEP NNN) am no longer hosting this event. While it can continue as before, it will be up to the participants to choose a format which best suits them.
Every Thursday Night ~9:00 to 11:00 Eastern 2old2play will be hosting Halo 4 parties. Any member of 2old2play.com can participate.
As of Sept. 16, 2013, two parties may be enabled within the operating window. DEEP NNN (me) and Bluestar (the other guy) will be your hosts. We will start with one party up to 16. If enough other members are ready and willing to play, Bluestar will start a new party. I expect the two parties will merge later in the evening when the participants begin to drop out. Some parties may extend beyond the operating window and that time is not governed by these guidelines.
Send us an XBLive text message with "Inv" in it if you can't get in via a gamertag.
If the parties get full, someone may be asked to host a another party. Or you could start your own party using similar attributes. Parties should comply with the attributes listed below but variation will depend on many factors.
Attributes of the Thurday Night Site Wide Party:
Party Settings: Friends Only, to allow easy access to the party. Please police your friends that are not 2old2play members, but we are not about booting out good people who might join 2old2play.
Customs only: No Matchmaking between 9:00 and 11:00 Eastern.
All Skill ranges: That means terrible to excellent.
Your personal attitude: Should be very forgiving and fun loving for this event.
Style of Gameplay: Casual competitive. Even scrubs want to win.
Gametypes: Mostly Default Slayer, CTF, etc and slightly odd custom variants (not vomit inducing endless confusion). Betrayal Booting: will be turned off.
Maps: Mostly Default with a few custom variants. This is not a night for experimenting on newly built maps (expect a little bit). I figure some people will not have DLC maps so we go with disk based if we have to but it is recommended you acquire all the DLC if you like your experience.
Tbagging: Of course but use discretion. I welcome a good Tbag because I will then hunt you down like a dog and give you a prize you won't forget. ;)
Other Personal Conduct: 2old2play's TOS should be a benchmark but I have not fleshed out this point yet..
This is a 2old2play.com member all inclusive event.
UPDATE: Parties should be set to INVITE ONLY starting January 17, 2014 and until further notice.
