AFCTF: News and Information
 
Well, you lucky, lucky people. There's been some shifting around of assets, titles, and people, and Haz, in his infinite, majestic, and genius wisdom, saw fit to raise myself and Zero up to the lofty ranks of Co-Leaders of the Fleet. Called Ten Forward.

As part of this new deal, every member of AFCTF will pay both Zero and myself 'subs' to be members, consisting of 1,000,000 EC's a week. In lieu of that, you can take Hort into PVP and blow him up mercilessly, 30 times on the trot. Each.

No? Ohhh....okay, then.

Naturally, Krent's still admin, however, both myself and Zero wanted to be very pro-active in the running of things, and we decided a good way to kick things off into high gear would be to do a Fleet Run of the Crystalline Entity. That's right, we're both huge, huge masochists, and wanted you guys to feel the pain of running a massively bugged task. Since Terrordome won't encompass all of us, CE seemed to be the next best thing.

Tentatively scheduled for Sunday, October 31st (Halloween, people!) at the following times:

8pm BST
3pm EST
2pm Whatever that one in the middle is ST
1pm Pacific

At this point, we ARE, obviously, open to suggestions and amendments on time - however, not TOO late in the day, please, as some of us live in Europe. It was also going to be fancy dress, until Zero quite rightly pointed out that we'd be in our ships for the majority of it. However, after we kill the CE (HAHAHAHAH, yeah, right) I'm going to have a celebratory party in the lounge of my ship, and, guess what? Fancy Dress Party. The best costume will win a million ECs, too, and we'll have music provided (hopefully), courtesy of Rogues Radio - the AFCTF official radio station.

Let's rock.

Lemme think. BST is GMT +1 currently, I think, so that would put PST at -8 to BST then. So, I'm thinking instead of 1 PM Pacific, wouldn't it be 12 PM PST (GMT -7), 1 PM MST (GMT -6), 2 PM CST (GMT -5), and 3 PM EST (GMT -4), base on 8 PM BST? Though I think this is subject to change when Daylight Savings Time ends, which I don't think is until sometime next month, so that shouldn't be a problem. But I'm not so sure on time conversions, as I've based PST of of Cryptic's announcements since they've always included the GMT difference in their mantience times.


There's also the possiblity that we won't be able to group the different ranks together for the run if. I'd suggest also organizing into rank-oriented sub-groups if we cannont group VAs, RAs, Capt.s, and etc. together. This might be something we'll need to scout out to see if we can get around it before hand, as it may present a problem if we all don't have characters at the same rank.

As for fancy dress, couldn't we also do fancy ship dress? It'd be interesting to see how many different fancy ship designs we'd get in the end.


If we all run with VAs, I'll bring Iaeger and the Arizona (and no, I won't bring my Constitution [though I'm tempted to now]. I'll bring the Sovereign) to the shindig and work on the formal uniform in the mean time. I have an idea as to what I want to use, but I'm not so sure. And I'll go ahead a throw out there's the possibility we won't be home at 3 PM. I never know what time we're gonna be home on Sundays because we usually get groceries after church on Sundays, but I think we're home by 2 PM most of the time.

-grumble grumble-
I still haven't picked up all the pieces of my ship from when Zero fought me once :eek:
It was like fighting hit-girl or something, I just wanted to tap out and stay dead....

It wasn't that bad was it?

Well, it was a quick death at least :rolleyes:
Actually that's seriously a good thing. I've been in a pvp stalemate before, those aren't any fun. It's just a battle to see who can stay in the game without being disconnected longer. Then I lose because I have comcast :(

I know that feeling. I've been in a stalemate in a 1 on 1 match on two separate occasions. Needless to say, not one kill was made by either party in the hour, I think, each on lasted. One was against a Gal-R and the other was a BoP.

Technically I think we are the same fleet rank. It's good that you two are up now as well, I have been totally sidetracked playing Minecraft lately.

Woot, I don't think I have any plans for Halloween so count me in.

Maybe we should choose a single timezone for us all to acclimate to. That way everyone only has to remember one timezone to convert. GMT seems to be fairly universal on the internet.

Glad you are getting more of a response than my thread, not that I offered much to discuss in it.

I would love slamming my **** in a drawer, I mean tackling the totally balanced and exquisitely programmed (and totally not buggy) Crystalline Entity alongside such distiguished persons as yourselves!

Barring injury, power outage, or family emergency I'll be there. Let me know if I should respec back to my cruiser tank/healer (currently in a Tac Escort Refit).


All times are GMT -7. The time now is 09:00 AM.
