Hardcore Empires PUG #1: Sunday 23rd April 19:00 (UTC) Find your time and date On Sunday 23rd of April I am organizing a pick-up game, for lack of better term, a "more-organized than usual" Empires game. It will take place on my server, "Mr. X.'s Hardcore Empires" which most of you know has some drastic gameplay changes, most notably no wages and no player-refinery-scaling. The ideal duration of this PUG is 3 hours, leaving room for 3 to 4 maps. Players should show up as soon as 15 minutes before the event to participate in the warm-up which will happen on emp_district402. Here is the steam group for this PUG and future PUGs. Keep in mind if you enter this group whenever there is a PUG there will be multiple events popping up before it starts. Maps: I have yet to decide if I should leave it to my server's voting system to select the maps, what do you think? EDIT: we may want to stick to official maps if we get a large amount of players because of slowDL. Commanders: If you are an experienced Commander you can reserve your a slot for one or more maps, simply reply here with your in-game name and an amount of rounds you would like to command. Squad Leaders: Like Commanders you can reserve a slot to be squad leading, but no need to specific how many games you would like to lead. Additionally you can select up to 2 players with whom you would like to play and if balance allows it they will be put onto your team. Plugin: Some members of the community are working on plugins to facilitate such games, depending on their time-table we may or may not be using these plugins.
