Our very own Duke Juker wrote a guide for Half-Life 2: Deathmatch here!

One of the very noticible changes, besides Earth stepping up in a major way, is that we're making the polls start the night of the event. Also, we're doing the polls off-site so you no longer need to take on that burdensome task of logging in and remembering to vote.

So please, come check us out! We've been getting 10+ people for several weeks now and can only hope to continue growing.

And that's not even including the randoms we get because the server actually has people in it, so quickplay will put them in there with us!
I believe we peaked at 18 people this week at the same time

Did you get your own server up for the 3 games yet, Earth? If so, you should probably have the IP listed, else state that we play on a random one.

And what type of L4D2 do you play when it wins? Might be good to list the game modes we play for each game.

Still working on the other servers.

We've actually had too many people to play Left 4 Dead :)

Wow, that's good! Though it would be fun to play a few campaign maps with BnB.

I still say PC Gaming should checkout JC2-MP sometime. JRD and I currently host one of the top 5 most advanced and most popular servers ;)

The only problem with that is that there's no real objective. Yeah, it's fun to mess around, but it's kinda hard to organize an event around it.

May I suggest using a better polling software? (Like the native one or something integrated with Steam) What is the reason? I clicked on the link and tried to vote and it said that I had already voted, which I had not, but Jason probably did. So it is logging votes by IP meaning multiple players at one residence only get one vote. Unless they are sneaky using other IPs and then they can get several more than 1 if wanted and set the result.

If killing people like in HL2 and CS is an objective then JCMP can fulfill that same objective, at least on our server. Kills, Deaths, and KDR are logged and persistent. Players can do team vs team battles with actual goals and consequences.
Did I mention you can drive/fly/boat, while fighting players? :P

I could list more stuff... JC2-MP is not a game that can be judged from one server nor from a short session.

Just suggesting it as another game for the roster. If you want ideas about events you could do for it hit me up on skype. If our server doesn't support something you'd like to do there's a good chance I can make it(I wrote all our scripts and am one of the most experienced scripters of the mod).

Ditto. I'm pretty sure we have a few other related people on BnB and as JRD said, it can easily be abused.
Was logging in really that much of a burden to people?

For CS:GO can we pleaaasseee do Competitive mode? It doesn't have to be ranked, just the game mode where it's 30 rounds/first to 16 and you have to buy armor and w/e.

Building off of what Jason is suggesting, we could do the same with Arma we wanted to. We could just jump into a server and group up, I'm sure. Objectives? No, but it could be a blast if you want to role play it.

Poll for 8-19-14 is available - http://strawpoll.me/2343003

I turned on permissive voting, so for jrdgames and Jason, you may now both vote :).

The poll does not appear to be getting reset... Anyone else notice this? Or am I just missing the new poll?

Yeah, unfortunately it's got to be redone each week manually and I don't think it's been done recently. I believe it's been created and pasted in Mumble during events, but we've forgotten to copy it over. I'll update it for next week (this week will be TF2 again).

Sorry for any confusion.

Wouldn't the forum's native poll software be less or similar hassle to what is being done now?
