Let's move this discussion over to this thread.

Quote from: "SuperHiro"
Knightshade and I have sent a few pm's back n' forth over this.  Anyone interested in maybe a BC vs. GT match?  I have no idea what game to actually use.  I figured DoW or BF2.  BF2 might be the most even matchup though, we're all relatively rusty.  We've been playing DoW pretty regularly.


Soo... what's the game gonna be?

I've never gotten an online game going, but I'll be more than happy to have my ass kicked in Company of Heroes.

CoH is a bit unstable at the moment.  Let's see if they can patch it so it's stable first.

Hm, well here's the multiplayer stuff I've got, off the top of my head:

-UT2k4
-Counter-Strike Source
-Day of Defeat Source
-Dawn of War: Winter Assault
-Civilization 4: Warlords
-Battle for Middle Earth 2
-Dragonshard
-Warcraft 3: Frozen Throne
-Guild Wars + Guild Wars: Factions
-Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri + Alien Crossfire
-Total Anihilation + Expansions

I personally like the DoW option...

The favorite over on BC is BF2.  There's even talk of rezzing Tony in order to pull it off.

I think I would like to kick some GT butt. And I would like to do it in BF2, because I suck hardcore and also hate RTS games.

If we did GT vs BC Operation: Flashpoint, I would be so happy. Even more so if GT for some reason got together and donated a free computer to me.

How about this... if it WERE BF2... how many guys could you round up?  I know BC can probably get a full team of 8 going.

That's the plan.  BC's POV on one site, GT's POV on the other.  

I actually really like the idea of using CoH.  Think about it.  We'll get a fair amount of press for sure.  We just need to hang on for a bit and let it get patched so it's a little more stable right now.

RTS's in general can work really well because we can have spectators.  And if we want to be REAL losers, we can try to make audio commentary to play over the replay!

And if we chose DoW (which for the sake of speed may be easier to pull off... for starters)... OMG... this is brilliant...

TEAM COLORS.

True that... I'd be all in for BF2 if it wasn't still freakin' $30-40 in stores.

I'd be up for playing Dawn of War tonite.  How would we work it if we picked an RTS as 'the game,' though?  I think most RTSes are balanced for 1v1, even bumping it to 2v2 tends to muck things up...

The goal is to accomodate as many people as possible, which means if it was DoW we'd be going 4v4.

I like DoW but I'd rather do BF2 (unless there's another team-based mp game out there that we can do).

Yeah, I see what you mean...

EDIT:  Oh boy, now that Chris Grenard has complained about me, I've GOT to be a part of this!

EDIT2:  Oh yeah, Rise of Nations is another potential game -- it actually works pretty well as a team vs team RTS.

EDIT3:  Oh shit let's play DOTA for Warcraft 3: Frozen Throne.  That's some f-in hot 4v4/5v5 quasi-RTS/RPG.

I could do BF2, GRAW (360), or UT2k4.

I own DoW, but I'm horrid at it.

I could do Counterstrike as well.

Of course, it all hinges on what day you all decide to do these games.

Yeah no diggity, you're liked!  Come on now!

I don't really have any games that have been mentioned in this thread aside from CS: Source and UT.  I could do both.

I'm actually reinstalling CS:S tonight just for this. Nothing short of a contest of this magnitude would get me to do this. SuperHiro may as well consider himself pwned before it even begins.

Looks like CS:S is sort of the popular opinion over here.  I know you guys are all about DoW, so maybe we can have a round 2 with that and a rubber match (if you guys manage to actually defeat the powerhouse that is GT) with some other random game.

This weekend would be great to have the contest, it's a shame I'll be working, but we've got plenty people here to REPRESENT biggrin
