Hello there Minecraft forums, my name is Kuloko, a veteran member of the Unlimited Clan Gaming Community. Maybe some of you know me, but many of you don't. I'm an avid gamer and I love playing with other people. That is why I'm here today, to let all of you know about Unlimited Clan's FIRST Gamenight! This is an event where our whole community can come together as friends, and all be on one game that is either free to play, or that a majority of people already have. The games we will have for gamenights will change weekly as well, so nothing will get dull. Hopefully you read this and decide to join us for a night of fun! Here is our post from our forums describing what game night is, when it is and what games we'll be playing for the first week!
Today I have the pleasure of announcing a new repeating event called:
Why Should I?
It's time we got our act together. We're a community, and we need to play as one. Not just League of Legends. Not just Minecraft. It's about time we expanded our horizons a bit, and tried something new! Ever heard of Planetside 2? You might not like playing on it by yourself, but I tell you what, the amount of times I've wee'd myself laughing when I crashes his plane into the side of a mountain adds up to a large number. Even if you don't like the games, come along and join in. You never know, you might start to enjoy it! Playing games with your friends is ALWAYS more fun than playing those games on your own!
Look out for threads with this symbol before the title: [G] to see when the events are being held. Your organizers are Stuart and Kuloko, so if you have ANY suggestions of a game to play next, send a message or reply to this post!
This week's events
Friday 19th - Planetside 2
Get your battle face on with the free-to-play Planetside 2! Everyone can be in a squad together, fighting against the evil factions that want to take your sectors. Or, if you fancy going against the ones you love, you could create a character on another race to battle your friends. Now that would be interesting, wouldn't it? Multiple classes, many land/air vehicles to choose from and hours of fun fighting enemy factions to the death, time and time again. Recommended for a newer computer, though older PCs can play it at the expense of graphics quality.
The recommended race to play as in this event is the Vanu Soverignority, however it is equally as encouraged to fight against us as a separate race. Moreover, the server your character needs to be assigned to is 'Watterson', a US based server. If you wish to change servers, you must create a new character, as servers cannot be changed when your character has been created. The continent the battle will take place on will be decided on the day, and may change during gameplay. Make sure to log into the Ventrilo server to get the most up-to-date news!
This event will be held at 11pm GMT/6pm EST/4pm PST
It is advised that this game be downloaded and readily patched before the set time to avoid delays. Patching can take a while, so give it plenty of time before the event to get it patched up and sorted out. Furthermore, it would be better to play the tutorial before joining the event!
Saturday 20th - League of Legends
Another free game, so don't worry if you're poor (like me)! Choose your champion and grab your super minion, because the mission here is to destroy the enemy's nexus. With five people maximum in one team, you and your friends can challenge your rivals in a fight to the death to save your nexus and keep those pesky baddies away! Very fun game if you're playing with other people, and completely free to play as much as you like. Will run on many computers, though you will need Boot Camp if you want to run it smoothly on a Macintosh.
Make sure your account is set to use US servers (note that once your account has been made, you cannot change servers). It might be worth, if you play on the EU servers, creating an account to play on the US servers, though you will not be able to carry your progress over. Make sure to log on to the Ventrilo server for exact details of when matches will be held and how to join.
This event will be held at 11pm GMT/6pm EST/4pm PST
Once again, you'll need to make sure that the game is downloaded and patched before the event takes place, because from my experience LoL is a for frequent, yet slow patches. Also, it is STRONGLY ADVISED to play the tutorial more than once before joining for the first time. You'll need it!
If you have any ideas about games we should play next, or any feedback on the events, please leave a comment below! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask us! Finally, recording is strongly encouraged, so feel free to whip Fraps out and record for YouTube. Just don't forget to tell us about it so we can all watch it!
DarthSRN here, 3 year UC veteran. I have been with these guys(and Skittered) since an old Star Wars server that was created almost exactly 3 years ago. Through all the server that have gone up and down, the best of the community has stayed with us and they are the best people to hang out with. If you really love gaming, come check this out, and even if you can't make the events come drop by our vent server, there is usually something going on.
