ARK Survival Evolved is a action/survival/crafting RPG that takes place on a large prehistoric island. You can read more about it at the link below. The password for our server is foliage and the details to connect are above. If you are not yet a member of our tribe, you will need to connect while one of us is on there to find you and invite you while face to face. Once that happens, you are able to spawn in any of our existing bases on the island.

Fall WAN party Saturday November 9 starting at 6:00 PM
Posted on Wednesday October 09, 2019

The fall WAN party will take place on Saturday November 9 starting at 6:00 PM. I tried my best to work it out for everyone, but it is, of course, always tough to do. Hopefully those who are not able to make this one can make the winter. The tentative schedule of games can be found here:

 

 

 


Star Wars Battlefront II for post-community nights, tips
Posted on Monday October 07, 2019

A few of us have tested out the Star Wars Battlefront II coop following community nights. In the future, we plan to play this game when a L4D2 or MvM community night ends early. Here are a few tips that we have discovered about the game in the times that we have tried it.

 

#1 Make sure that Discord is set to use your specific input and output devices in the settings. If you leave it at default, you may lose audio or mic as the game progresses. This may apply to other games as well. These settings are at the top of the Voice and Video settings under Input and Output Device.

 

#2 There is in-game VOIP that is automatically voice activated. The only way to disable it is to mute each person in your party at the party screen by highlighting them and clicking the mute button if it is available. No permanent way to mute others or yourself unfortunately.

 

#3 To start coop, you need to start a party first unless you want to play with a bunch of random players. Click the little icon in the upper left corner. Make sure each friend is at the Star Wars Battlefront II menu and then click the Invite button for them at the party screen. They should see the invite pop up in the lower right corner. If you invite them at any other point in time, it probably wont work properly.

 

#4 Once you are all in the party, go to Multiplayer -> Operations -> Coop, and launch coop. It will randomly find you a server then rotate you through the coop maps automatically.

 

There is also instant action which is similar but can be played offline alone. Coop and instant action only have the prequel maps played from one side for now, but they did promise to add both factions and original and sequel trilogy maps eventually.

Sea of Thieves is a PC and Xbox One game that allows cross play between the two where you form a crew of up to 4 and sail around looking for treasure and having other adventures. If we have more than 4, we will split into several crews. It is tough to play together with multiple crews with the current game design, but we will make at least one attempt to get on the same server together at the start by joining as separate ships and raising the Reaper flag to look for one another.  Make sure to check the game on the Microsoft store app prior to community night to see if there is an update that needs to be downloaded/installed by the store app!  Also, if you buy the game through the Microsoft store on either the PC or Xbox, you can install and play it on both the PC and Xbox One simultaneously.

Wow, I did not see that coming. The game is apparently being released on November 5, only a month away. It is going to first be available on the Epic Store and the Rock Star Game Launcher, but the good news is that only a month later it releases on STEAM. More details here:

Star Wars Battlefront II DICE Sept feedback survey, request private matches and server browser
Posted on Wednesday October 02, 2019

Another month, another survey. These are working as they are adding new features like instant action and 4-player coop. Below is what I am requesting. You can just skip through the rest of the survey following the second page.

 

Quote

 

private matches for all maps/modes including coop for the same maxplayers as multiplayer allowing players to join on their friends and leave at any time during the match

 

proper multiplayer server browser with filters that allows you to choose the server, map, and mode
