Hey all! I decided to make a dedicated thread for the mumble mixers that we have been running (via the Community Game Nights thread)! Also, I want to set it up in a way so that anyone can "host" one! So that is what this thread is for!

Some of you are probably saying, "Cayda, what the heck is a mumble mixer?". Essentially, it's just a way to get a bunch of members/users into Mumble to socialize. Each week, or at least every other week, I'd like to see a small event of some kind that encourages newbies to get to know our regs. The best way to keep something like this going is to have people take turns hosting. In this thread, I will list the dates/hosts for upcoming mixers.

Spoiler: Guidelines


UPCOMING MIXER EVENTS

Fri, 3/11 8:00 PM [email protected]Brudda........................................Fistful of Frags

My body is ready to host next weekend. pisay.gif Current plans/ideas, so you can download/start practicing now:

  • Fistful of Frags (@Wait, if you don't show up to this, I'm beating you up)
  • MvM
  • Any other multiplayer games which most/all of us have (preferably F2P so the rest of us can download and join in; shoot me ideas if you've got some)
  • Best terrible accent contest (good luck beating me pcool.gif)
  • And final idea, I think it'd be fun if one of us played a game on Steam and everyone else watched and laughed/commented. For example, if I were to be the one playing, I'd probably play either Hotline Miami, FTL, Saints Row IV, Rogue Legacy, or Super Meat Boy, but I've got a lot to choose from, and it doesn't have to be me who we all watch.

Watching someone play a horror game is the absolute best! Tense and scary at the same time, lol

I don't have too many of these, but BioShock and Metro 2033 could both qualify.

Both are pretty good games with their moments, but I was thinking more along the lines of Alien or Amnesia. I have all the scary games, lol, and if I can get my steam broadcast to start working, I would totally stream those. I am one of the biggest wimps when it comes to those games so people love watching me ;-; haha

I kinda like this, it's more of a mumble hangout like karaoke(Oh that was a great night) instead of just using it for an event.

I love this idea! I do not have a mic at the moment, but I would love to join in via the chat. I've never used mumble before so I might need some help, otherwise, I am ready to pass the whiskey to @Brudda. If anyone else likes Fistful of Frags, join in.

How do people feel about the Osu game being tomorrow (4/17) at  8:30 EST?

 

My understanding is that you can have up to 16 people in a game and that people will be able to take turns picking songs.

So maybe start thinking about what songs you would like to pick if you are participating. I don't want to put limits on songs, but just a quick note that you should be mindful of songs that might be offensive to others. Be cool.

 

If anyone has any comments, concerns, or questions please post here or contact me via steam or PM.

I don't have osu!, so I probably won't partake in that part, but I'll hang out in the Mumble until y'all move on to something else. 8:30 is a perfectly fine time to start, imo.

It's a free game. You could give it a try. Mumble during osu! would end up with us talking for a few minutes and then complete silence. Repeat for each song.

thing is that I'm gonna be pretty busy tomorrow, so this would give me more time to work while I'm waiting for y'all to move on to L4D2 or MvM or something. That said, if I find myself with a lot of free time, I'll download osu! and join on in.

Yay!! I am hosting a mixer with @Cayda! So, I was thinking of doing some introduction games to start out (20 questions style/Would you rather) then moving into a Highlander PUG, if enough people would be interested in that. Tell me what ya think!

 

We could always just seed FP servers while hanging out, if we can't get enough people, but I am open to most things!
