There's a scheduled outage tonight of the Minecraft's login authentication servers. Unfortunately this scheduled outage falls right before our scheduled match tonight. The outage begins (all of these times are in US Central) 7:30pm, and continues until 9pm. Perfect timing, no?
The best approach would be to log in to the server BEFORE 7:30 if possible, and remain in the server during the whole match. From what I understand, servers authenticate your credentials when you attempt to enter the server, which goes through the Minecraft servers, which will not be available due to this scheduled outage.
Again, log in BEFORE 7:30pm US Central time, and remain in the server the entire match, or it will be difficult for you to return.
See you BEFORE 7:30, and when we are all ready we will begin. It may end up being a 3v3 because of this, but we'll try our best!
@Aaron, Will set the map up later today. When are ya gunna try one of the alternate maps?
@whomever left those signs behind. That's not cool.
What signs were you talking about? Not the one that said "Pillar of Win" on the stack of 3 wool right? I assume not, seeing how you've reacted... but I want to be sure it wasn't me :-/
Also, sorry about lagging out the server, if it was me. I think I hit the supply room with that TNT again. We should edit the map by surrounding the supply rooms with obsidian or with bedrock, because it's going to happen sooner or later with all the cannon-fire. Or move the chests closer to the supply tunnel.
Good game everyone! We had 8 people ready to go, but with 3 no-shows we ended up taking people as substitutions. Make sure you always come in if you want to play, because you never know if there will be dropouts!
Match Summary: Map: Vechs RFW#2 Direct Fire
Team 1: Aaron215, raid3r, CR0SBO, & last_username
Team 2: chessyang, staristrike, 12WiT, (forgot his name, sorry!)
After some complaining from (forgot his name) and 12WiT about what lane they got, and it being nighttime when we started, we moved to their server. Team 1 won getting all 3 wool in a shutout, but not without some heavy arrow fire. Luckily Team 1 put together some good armor before heading out into the open and returned devastating cover fire for the wool runners who brought all 3 wool home in under 45 minutes.
Good game everyone! Thank you to our guests for providing the alternate server (just so everyone is aware, nothing was wrong with the BowlofNoodles Server, and it actually performed a bit better for us for the brief time we played on it.) and also a big thanks to chessyang for coming through and finding two subs for us! Without that we would have needed to do a 3v3, so another reminder for everyone: Come in even if you aren't on a team and you will most likely get a spot!
Next game? Make suggestions on a map, date and time!
If Bowlofnoodles doesn't want to install it, I can host it on my machine. I've done that before and it seems to work quite well. And I can get some of my playtesters to join the game, if we need more people.
Otherwise, I say we try Reshif's Leaping Stones CTW map. I've played it before and quite liked it:
