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.

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.

Prepare for fall WAN party: Counter-strike: Global Offensive
Posted on Thursday November 07, 2019

The final game to show up in our schedule of events for our fall WAN party taking place this Saturday November 9 is Counter-Strike:Global Offensive which we will switch to around 9:45 PM Eastern. If you do not already have the game in your STEAM library, it is now completely FREE. You need only have it installed from STEAM as any maps that are not included with the game will be downloaded from the server automatically. However, if you want to make sure that you have all of the maps ahead of time, you can download them from here. The server will be hosted at 70.44.105.142:27018.


Prepare for fall WAN party: Titanfall 2
Posted on Wednesday November 06, 2019

The next game to show up in the schedule of events for our fall WAN party taking place this coming Saturday November 2 will be Titanfall 2 which we will switch to around 8:30 PM Eastern. This is a futuristic shooter with various game modes where you can use mechs (titans). If you do not own the game yet, you can buy it at the link below for $20.

 

https://www.origin.com/usa/en-us/store/titanfall/titanfall-2/standard-edition

 

We will be coordinating via Origin friends in addition to Discord and will determine what mode we will play once everyone has joined the game lobby. Be sure to join our OSF Titanfall 2 network with the instructions at the link below to make it easier for you to find your way into the game lobby. You can also join on people already in the lobby from the external Origin friends list. If we would happen to have more than 16 of us, we will split ourselves into groups. There are also coop missions available, so we could split ourselves into groups of 4 and play that mode as well.

We will be kicking off our fall WAN party at 6:00 PM Eastern this coming Saturday November 2 with Left 4 Dead 2. The server will be hosted at 70.44.105.142:27019. We will be playing survival mode on various maps.

Prepare for fall WAN party: Discord VOIP
Posted on Sunday November 03, 2019

Our fall WAN party is set to take place next Saturday November 9 starting at 6:00 PM Eastern. Our WAN parties are essentially extended community nights where we play multiple games over the course of 5 hours or so. You can find the full list of games to be played in this post. More news posts will follow over the next week with instructions for each game.

 

We will use the Lobby channel on Discord as a supplement to any built-in voice communication for games to coordinate, communicate, and have a good time. All members and friends are welcome to join in. Members can invite friends and family from Discord to join our server (or use the Discord server invite link from Member links at the top menu of the forums). We will also use STEAM friends to coordinate. You can find more about installing Discord and connecting to our server here:

Below is a reminder of where we are in our quest to complete all of the campaigns on Expert mode. The bolded campaigns are the completed ones on expert and the red one is the one that we played most recently. There is an achievement for surviving all of the official Left 4 Dead 2 campaigns on expert if you have not done that yet. We will be starting this time with Back To School. If we get by that quickly enough or get frustrated, we will switch to survival mode depending on how much time we have. Make sure to have all of the custom maps installed using the instructions found here.
