Hey look at that, another pug to brighten up your holiday. Where and when, Click me for your local time. December 17th 1900 GMT / 2000 CET / 1400 EST / 1100 PST.Click me for your local time. On Nubs event server. Join the empires vet group for event notices and to be kept up to date on what's happening. http://steamcommunity.com/groups/empvetpug How this works To start off with we will have a 15minute warmup on glycencity at event time start. Just so people can join in. Please join in even if it's a warmup, having 10 people stumble in when we are drafting or even after the draft can be rather disruptive. We will be making the most out of scardybob's new pug plugin. To that end I just need 2 captains. You don't have to command too but be sure to grab yourself a comm(they will basically be your first pick.). You can read that link on how the plugin works but basically 2 people volunteer to be captains by typing !captain, then take turns picking players. After all players are picked then a 15 minute planning time commences so each team can plan accordingly, this can be ended sooner when both captains types !ready. When the captain and team know what they are doing captain just types !ready, when both captains type ready round starts. We will only play one round a map, but we will be keeping teams throughout the event. The plugin should keep track of who's on what team, so this shouldn't be too hard to deal with. Maps At the moment I don't have maps set in stone, you are free to suggest any commander maps you want, stock or custom. City and winter themed maps won out in the other thread, so that's what we will be playing. Glycenplains - Will probably play this, but I need to check on something. Homeland - Need a city map and the other ones are a little small. Yes there's streets but homeland generally plays better. Snowbound - This is the updated version so we will be playing it. Commandergrad - Can't have a city pug without best city map. King - This feels like the perfect map but it has a bad habit of crashing. If we do see it at all it will be at the end of the pug. Again it's not set in stone, you're free to make suggestions. I'll update this on Friday with a final map list and order. About passwords Because we are using a plugin that can delay round start and force people to whatever team they are suppose to be on there will be no password. I hope you all really show any newer player what empires is really all about so they too can up their empire's game play.
