Hi everyone, I'm ATB: an avid Single Player gamer of average skill.  I would like to invite my fellow SP gamers into a GOW MP game Saturday night at around 10 PM EST.

My ideal players would be those with limited or no experience playing GOW multiplayer (I'm not looking for someone who has the maps memorized or is just looking to increase their frag count) or multiplayer at all. Other than some coop Smash TV, I've not done any multiplayer gaming at all...ever with the exception of one game of C&C with a friend over 56k...12 or so years ago.

Let me know if you're interested either in this thread or over PM. I guess I need 3 players. (I should probably read the manual on how to do this biggrin).

My plan is to cut my teeth and then jump in with the rest of the veteran GT crew at sometime in the future.

I know this should probably be in the MP forum, but if my target audience is like me, then they probably never go in there. Move if you must mods.

I would like to but Saturday is date night.  We're planning on staying in since we both have shitty colds, but I don't think she's going to go for an evening of watching me shoot people.

As a fellow multiplayer n00b I'd be up to play, but Saturday is completely out for me. Sundays are much better all around.

I am a multiplayer virgin, though I have cut my teeth on the co-op campaign with a couple friends. 

I think it's a very good chance that I can play then - I am going out Saturday night but ought to be back by then...

I'd be up for some multiplayer, as I've only played in a handful of matches, but I'll be flying to Philly on Saturday for the Monday Night Football game and won't be back in town until Tuesday.  Perhaps another time.

ATB,

The earliest I could make it on Saturday night would be 11:00 EST.   Note, I've played some multiplayer with the GT crew but I end up at the bottom of the "score" list. 

You should try to get 7 others into the game.   4 per team.    There aren't any bots in GoW.

I know that the intent is to play on Saturday, but for those who are available tonight, I'd really be interested in some Gears of War multiplayer later this evening.  I'll be finishing up some laundry in preparation for my trip to Philly, and Jancelot expressed interest in playing tonight, so if any of you are game, keep an eye out for us most likely around 8 or 9pm Arizona (10 or 11pm Eastern).

I might be on earlier if I can finish up what I have to do around the house sooner.  But whenever I think I can make an earlier match, I almost never make it because something almost always comes up.

After having played with Calvin, he's more likely to shoot you first.  Yes.....I'm saying he's got skillz.

Rocked some MP tonight with PeteRock, Jancelot and a new friend Gladguy.  Also got some in with Jarrodhk, Mmoriarty, papasmurf and someone else (edit: Ceekay) and someone else...

I got pwned more than I pwned- especially in the 4x4, but I began to pick it up quickly.

2x2 was a hoot too. Lotsa killin.  Pete and Jance are a great team.

Not too surprising that you had problems early on, most of us have played quite a bit.  Although several of us were experiencing the difficulties inherent in playing two different games close together.  Especially the cover system differences between Gears and R6.

All in all it was good fun.  After Moriarty left I realized I was too tired to keep playing and have fun.  Good chance I'll be on tonight.

+1.  I kept on pulling the left trigger expecting to take cover, and hitting B to throw grenades.  Not to mention the pain of trying to actually connect to the game.  I had no issue connecting to other games when connected through my router, but connecting via the invites was not working.
