The Starhawk Wednesday Event!

135 Replies 2,100 Views Created 02-07-2012

welcome to the super Starhawk Wednesday Event!

 

calling all Starhawkers! if you like flying about in your 'hawk with the wind in your hair, driving around in your tank enjoying the lovely scenery and the vistas of space, or surfing your Sidewinder over, round and through stuff at super quick speed, then this is totally for you.

 

of course youll also need to love shooting, crushing and blowing-up lots and lots of enemies aswell! its war (one of those friendly kinda wars) where teams do battle over flags, frags and firey frocket launchers.

 

to join in on all the crazy fun and play some games with your fellow forumers, just glance at the info below:

 

date: Wednesday 4th July

time: around 8pm (BST)

game name: Wednesday Fun!

password: forumfun (if we need one)

 

set-up:

Dust (Basin) Zones

Echo (Narrows) CTF

Space (Orbital) Dogfight

Sever (Hollow) Zones

Scourage (Conduit) CTF

 

if im waaaaaaay way off with that set-up, then im totally open to suggestions 8). are there any maps and loadouts that anyone would like to play on or think would work?

 

awards:

thats not all! if you come along you could win... duh duh duuuh... some Starhawk Stickers! (well, theyre half stickers half badges and not endorsed by the OPC Federation).

 

 

- anyone that pops in a plays game instantly gets the Starryhawk Newbies sticker!

- if your team wins a game, everyone gets a Golden Winner award!

 

the only rules you need to remember are: shoot people, build stuff, dont feed after midnight and be nice and fair all round when playing. thats it! theyre not even rules really are they, just guidlines.

 

so if anyone fancies a shoot-around or drive-around or fly-around, come pop along :).

no probs Dragon, maybe next time :). thanks for popping along guys, had some fun games with everyone that came :)

think it was a bit of slow one, but hopefully there were still some fun times in there. Moonbug is totally the Harry Potter of Gatekeeper, and if you need a hawk taking down ask litty :D. the enemies base in the second Cypress game was crazy, there were walls around everything, was like a giant maze just to get near the flag xD.

we snatched the flag in the dying seconds on Orbital to rob the other team of a draw too \o/.

we left the game up for a fair while, but didnt really get many takers, even with it being non-passworded, so kinda took it down and hopped along to some random games instead. Yas got lucky this time lol.

guessing the short notice/8pm time slot may be an issue or something 8).

Was the server still up at 9 though?  I don't think the server list shows up all the available games.  The same thing happened one night with Morgo's Monday Mash, the server didn't show up on the list but luckily someone on my friend's list was in it and I could join.  I did try different filters, refreshing and going in and out of  "find games" but still no luck :Frown:

yeah, we could always try put it up around 9pm instead, cant hurt trying different things to see which works best for everyone 8).

nah Moonbug, dont think it was up at that time anyway. but would agree it can be tricky finding games in the server list, games just kinda pop on and off it sometimes lol.

Is there even a search feature on the server browser? It would make things a lot easier...

 

I'll see if I can come along if I'm not busy... :Thumbs:

Yeah, some good games last night, although I didn't win a single CTF game..

Im not a massive fan of Groundpounder CTF either - but still enjoy it. Played it a few times before last night, and all the time it degenerates into bike whorefare; jeeps and especially Tanks have trouble stopping a bike. Hawks far less so.

I'm used to 30 minute long Zone wars, rather than short-medium games, so they felt a little short. Not a bad thing - just not used to it.

I think it was the Zones game on Hollow where there was massive lag spikes. At one point I Flaked who I belive was CRO_NOSM1_BUBA (copied from above post, name looks familiar) and his Hawk exploded, but I didn't get the kill. Nearly a minute later I landed in an enemy rift point and spontaneously set on fire and then blew up. He had killed me with a Homing Rocket. And then my Flak kill on him popped up a few seconds later.
Dunno if there was a rogue connection or something, but my hit detection through that whole match was pretty poor.
