    Hello all,

    It's been ages since our last Band of Others Community Gameday and as you can see, the wait ain't over yet.

    With summer upon us and many having families, now is not the best time to plan a Community event as everyone is out enjoying the sun.

    This is why we're aiming for November, iRacing is doing nothing that month and everybody is a hobbit saving up for Christmas Presents.

    As you can see there is a poll asking which weekend is best for you; you are also afforded 2 votes.

    All other details as follows:

    What: Band of Others Community Gameday.
    When: Starting 2 PM EST Saturday Nov 2017 (please vote).
    Game: Team Fortress 2 (free to play).

    For a terrific idea of the fun we have in one of these events please refer to the following highlight video courtesy of @Cpl. Punishment.

    @Wapwap is the TF2 server pro here. The only thing we need to make sure is that he doesn't murder the fun like last year.
    Anyone remember the disabled spraypaints? xD

    No spraypaints for you @ElektroVodka. That's right, just for you.

    Voted for the first two. I'll make sure to have the server ready again by then. If it's getting close, we should also have little thought about the gamemodes and maps we want to play.

    Does anyone have the clip of Duke re: the disabled spraypaints? Still makes me laugh.

    I like the push the cart one the best I think, laughed so hard my kidneys nearly fell out of my nose.

    November is here and judging by the vote we're either a week away from this fate filled day or two weeks away.

    Nov 4th and 11th are in a dead heat, which one works better for you?

    I'll have to download the game but either day works for me. I'm wondering whether or not I should play the game before we play. Having no idea could add to the fun on my end or I could learn it and just drink some wobbly pops during. Looking forward to it!

    You don't need to know much to get into this game. Typical WASD, jump and shoot mechanics of all FPS.

    Being tipsy just makes it all that much more fun.

    I knew almost nothing of the game mechanics when we did our community game day in the video, hence why I was running around healing spies of the other team, and wondering why I was chasing myself around (it was a spy cloaked as me... doh). So playing it before is definitely not a requirement and like you say kind of added to the fun of it for me. Wobbly pops on the other hand should definitely be a requirement ;)

    The 11th seems to be a good fit for most people, is this set in stone? I voted for the 18th. I will still be able to make it on the 11th though but I might be a bit late as I have guests here on the 10th/11th.

    I think we also miss deb for the 11th. As only a few people have expressed a preference on this thread I am guessing (hoping) that everyone else will turn up and have no problem with it being ANY weekend in November.

    I think a good idea at this point is to pencil in the 11th and ask people when you're on TS if they would be ok with later in the Month so more can attend.

    In saying that though, the two last weekends in November got the least amount of votes.

    Yeah, I have to be out of town on the 11th and 12th, something I have to do with my family and can't reschedule. I voted for the 25th since it is Thanksgiving weekend and I know I will be either at home or at the lakehouse over the long weekend with all of the family in and out so probably be ready to hide from family by Saturday :p (just kidding, sort of :)).

    I have no problem with it being later in the month, the more the merrier so I'm happy to adjust to get the maximum amount of people together :)
