Spartans' Playground Customs Weds April 17
By:CHa0s
Date: 4/11/13 1:16 am

So Revenant sent me an invite a couple of days ago, and someone said, "Who are these people?!?" at which point I replied, "Who are YOU?!?" ;)

I see you guys post up gamenights, but I'm often busy doing something else, or it's something I don't fancy (like achievement parties, although the small amount of time we spent in there was pretty darn fun).

Anyway, I'd like to invite anyone who's interested to come check out some fun next Wednesday. I have no idea what kind of response it will get: sometimes my gamenights have a waiting list, sometimes you can practically hear the tumbleweeds as they scritch on by, but I thought to myself, "what better way to stop being a stranger than to invite HBO-goers to the party?" Here's moar infos:

---------

"What's this?!? CHa0s has joined a custom games group?!! But I thought you hated customs!!"

It's true, I've joined a customs gaming group over at HaloCommunity.com, where I had been posting up the Wednesday Oldschool custom nights. And I'm so impressed with their maps and games I want to share! These guys are crazy-creative, and have put neat little twists on their maps and gametypes. Nothing uber crazy, just a little someting different. So if you're ready for a little something different in your competitive-casual gaming, come get some games in Wednesday, April 17. Games will start around 5pm PST/8pm EST and run for at least two hours.

Hope to see you there! And read on for more information on this gamenight as explained by o Nondual o, as per the gaming group, "Casually Competitive Customs and Testing", guidelines.

Competitive maps and gametypes! But we don't take the competition that seriously. We're all about fun!

Sorry No Flood or Minigames though.*

What we play is similar to matchmaking, but with different twists to make things fresh, balanced, and above all more exciting! Usually there's lots of vehicles and hence EXPLOSIONS!

We play a mixture of maps and gametype's my friends and I have made, as well as what people in the lobby want to play. Usually this is a combination of forged maps, and custom gametypes on the default maps.

HOW TO JOIN:
Just send me the message "plz inv." I'll get you in as soon as I can, but usually we have quite a few people show up from the Casually Competitive Group, so games are pretty full. But there should be a couple of open spots as the night goes on. We usually cap the party at 12 people, but if the connections are good, we may open it up to 16.

Members of Casually Competitive Customs get priority. But it's easy to join, just go over to the group and click "like." (And dropping comments everywhere and liking stuff doesn't hurt either.)

PLEASE ONLY SEND ME ONE MESSAGE ON XBL! If you have questions post below in this thread. It takes too long to check messages sent to me on Xbox Live while games are going (yes seconds matter, lol)

...

Having a mic, and being funny is encouraged, but not required. (If being funny was always required, Iíd have to kick myself out most of the time.)

There is an age limit. Players need to act and sound like they are at least around 17 years old. Most of the guys we game with are in their 20's to 30 and we just prefer gaming with people older than this. Sorry youngsters! (However, if you donít have a mic, and always listen to what youíre suppose to be doing, then no one would know how old you were : )

---------

So just to be clear: it was a request by the group that if I use their maps and gametypes I follow their guidelines. I'm not an ageist ;) but I can definitely see where they're coming from.

So there's your invite, come or don't come, it's all good. But if you want a spot saved, better sign up for it, cause like the man said more than 12 and it breaks a lot of their fantastic maps.

Oh, and one more thing: I also have a Neutral Bomb variant.
