7D2D Community Night, Sunday June 4 @ 9:00 PM Eastern
Posted on Thursday June 01, 2023

Game: 7 Days 2 Die
Time: 9:00 PM Eastern (8:00 PM Central, 7:00 PM Mountain, 6:00 PM Pacific)

7d2d.jpg

 

7 Days to Die is a zombie apocalypse survival game with some crafting/building, similar to The Forest. We have a server running for it that will switch save games between community nights and the times in between to keep the community night save game from progressing further without those who are more likely to play only on those nights while still allowing others to play outside of community nights with full progression for that save game.  As long as you play outside of 7 PM Sunday to 2 AM Monday, you will not disturb the community night save game.  The name of our server is [OSF] Died in the Dell and can be found by searching the in-game server browser for [OSF]. Do not use the external STEAM server browser to join the server as it does not work properly.

 

You can buy 7 Days to Die for $25 and find more information about it here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/251570/7_Days_to_Die/

 

Although there is in-game voice communication, we will also meet in the Discord Lobby this time to determine which is better to use for this game.

Prepare for Spring WAN Party: Battlefield V @ 10:00 PM Eastern Sat April 29
Posted on Friday April 28, 2023

The final game to show up in the schedule of events for our spring WAN party taking place this Saturday April 29 is Battlefield V which we will switch to around 10:00 PM Eastern. We will be using a private server through the game called [OSF] The Ardennes Forest.  The password will be foliage. To find the server, go to Play -> Community Games -> Browse Community Games -> Filter (by Name: Ardennes).  This should bring up our server in the list.  Do not join on others because it will unbalance the teams.

 

It does have profanity with the game announcer, but you can disable that by turning of the "In-Game Announcer" in the settings.  You can also set it to 11 different languages including "Brazilian Portuguese" if that does not work.

 

Below is a link to buy/download the game for $40, if you do not already own it, but it will inevitably go on sale again in the future for $10 or less. So if you do not have the game yet, you are better off simply signing up for EA Play for $5 for one month which will give you access to this game as well as a lot of other games and then cancelling it at the end of the month.

Prepare for Spring WAN Party: Star Wars Battlefront 2 @ 9:00 PM Eastern Sat April 29
Posted on Thursday April 27, 2023

The next game to show up in our schedule of events for our spring WAN party taking place this Saturday April 29 will be Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2017 version) which we will switch to around 9:00 PM Eastern. We will be using a private servers through the Kyber client. You will need to download the Kyber client to play, but this is a simple executable, no install needed. You can download it ahead of time or when you want to join the server. We will have a private server to join, [OSF] May The Force Be With You. The process is to prelaunch the EA app, STEAM, and/or Epic Games and game and then shut down the game, go to the Kyber server hosting page and click the play button on our server. It will prompt you to download the client, but if you have it downloaded already, you can just start the Kyber client then start the game. That should be it. It does have issues with DirectX 12 so you may want to set your game (video) settings to DirectX 11 before you try to join the server. The game is also on sale for cheap right now on the EA app and STEAM.

7D2D Community Night, Sunday April 23 @ 9:00 PM Eastern
Posted on Thursday April 20, 2023

Game: 7 Days to Die
Time: 9:00 PM Eastern (8:00 PM Central, 7:00 PM Mountain, 6:00 PM Pacific)

7 Days to Die is a zombie apocalypse survival game with some crafting/building, similar to The Forest. We have a server running for it that will switch save games between community nights and the times in between to keep the community night save game from progressing further without those who are more likely to play only on those nights while still allowing others to play outside of community nights with full progression for that save game.  As long as you play outside of 7 PM Sunday to 2 AM Monday, you will not disturb the community night save game.  The name of our server is [OSF] Died in the Dell and can be found by searching the in-game server browser for [OSF]. Do not use the external STEAM server browser to join the server as it does not work properly.

 

You can buy 7 Days to Die for $25 and find more information about it here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/251570/7_Days_to_Die/

 

Although there is in-game voice communication, we will also meet in the Discord Lobby this time to determine which is better to use for this game.

Game: Sea of Thieves
Time: 9:00 PM Eastern (8:00 PM Central, 7:00 PM Mountain, 6:00 PM Pacific)

Sea of Thieves is a PC and Xbox One action/adventure 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. We will make a attempts to match on the same server together with multiple ships at the start, so try to be there on time for this purpose.  In order to maximize our odds of getting more than one ship on the same server, please download the Windscribe VPN client, sign up for a free account, and have it installed and ready to use for these nights.  It is easy to use and gives you 10 GBs of free data each month.

 

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. You can try it for a month for $1. See below.

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, the ones with asterisks have been beaten on expert since the latest update tweaked the difficulty, 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 Precinct 84. Make sure to have all of the custom maps installed using the instructions found here.
