Meeting for CTF league teams

Post by david_v » Wed Dec 17, 2003 7:55 am

Hey everybody,

I thought it would be nice if the CTF league teams could meet someday soon, preferably on IRC, to lighten up the community a bit. I.e. just talk, and be happy. 8) Right now there is not that much communication between teams.

The meeting would most suitably be held at #bzflag on irc.freenode.net:6667.

Suggested date and time: February 1st, 2004, 19:00 UTC

Give me some feedback so I know what you think. I hope to arrange an event like this soon.

Best regards,
Dave

What ski is saying is in fact one of my original thoughts with this meeting. Even if there would not be a large direct effect I believe there would be a very significant indirect effect, as the teams get to know each other better. 8)

I just wanted to post some kind of preliminary schedule for the discussion /chat on Feb. 1st. So here goes:

(All times UTC. If you don't know your UTC offset please go and look it up. I think I will post a little UTC clock on the Fortix team site later just in case someone has doubts.)

19:00:00 - Discussion of B.I.T., other leagues /tournaments and similar stuff.
19:27:35 - Ideas for improving the league site.
19:40:15 - How to strengthen relations between teams and team members - publicise ICQ numbers etc?
19:50:02 - General chat.
22:33:59 - /superkill

If you have any ideas of other topics to discuss, please let me know.

Also, please show up at 19:00:00 UTC if you don't want to miss something. I can't guarantee that we won't get off one second or two from the schedule at some point.

I read that danish people drinks alot (something like 49,5 million liters of pure alcohol/yr - and we only got 5,5 million people).. So in this light, i needed to modify it abit.

19:00:00 - Discussion of B.I.T., other leagues /tournaments and similar stuff.
19:01:00 - Welcome beer
19:10:00 - We-lasted-10-mins-beer
19:20:00 - We-lasted-20-mins-beer
19:27:35 - Ideas for improving the league site.
19:30:00 - Beer for messing that point up.
19:40:15 - How to strengthen relations between teams and team members - publicise ICQ numbers etc?
19:40:30 - Beer is the way. Beer to celebrate that decision. Publicise who is a slow-drinker.
19:50:02 - General chat.
19:51:00 - Swedish people feel sick. Other will have a beer to celebrate again.
20:00:00 - We-lasted-"who gives a.."-beer.
20:10:00 - Pee-break.
20:20:00 - We peed without breaking anything-beer
[...]
21:00:00 - We didnt last until /superkill.
21:10:00 - I feel sick.

Seriously - kudos for making this happen david.

*cheers*

I just wanted to make a short notice while I have some time to write. :)

The league meeting didn't go as I had hoped, and some of you may be disappointed. Mostly this is because I didn't have a good list of topics to discuss, and it got done a little hastily.

However, I hope some of you had fun. If not, those of you who know where I live will probably come and get me. Please wait a few days with that, though.

Anyhow, I will try and plan a new meeting like this, but take a different approach to it.

The meeting today did reveal some details that are worth noting, though. I hope to sum it up soon.

Happy hunting.

Dave

A few things that were mentioned:

- Integrate BZBB with league site? Could be done if the league site is moved to another site.
- Some interesting 4 vs. 4 matches with random players from CTF teams. Score would be shared between those in some way.
- Creation of a #bzmatches channel, where people could meet in order to set up matches. Personally I think this would help, although it seems dead at the very moment of writing this. Will dig into it...
- Someone could put up a page with proper contact info (ICQ number etc). Alternatively force people to update their info at BZBB. :)

This is not a complete list, but it gives you some idea. So as I said, the meeting wasn't fully efficient to understate it.

Ah right. They changed the name. I've been so busy with school stuff so I have no clue what has happened in BZ world meanwhile. :)
