Initially started as an idea to revive and revisit the games that we don't often play, the playdate thread has succeeded in it's goal. We now have Quake 3 players, Trackmania players, Altitude, Killing Floor, CSGO, COD 4, CSGO players who'll be glad yo join you in game anytime. Thanks everyone who joined us in the playdates during last 5 months..
Special thanks to Anorion for maintaining the polls and moderating the thread, Vyom for taking interest in trackmania playdates and introducing us to some exciting tracks never played before, ManiDhillon for taking responsibility of COD 4 playdates, Allu Azad and rajatGod512 who were keen to host KF servers for us and Team Digit for the featuring the thread on Digit magazine and bundling a playdate game on Digit DVD and everyone who helped us in better organizing of events.
With 13 planned playdates on weekends, and numerous unplanned pladyates during weekdays, the original playdate thread has served it's run and needs an overhaul in terms of method of organizing and rules. So after discussing with regular players, following is the outline for next season of playdates.
The original playdate thread has tons of information on OP regarding rules, FAQ etc. Most of it still holds except for the following changes which are suggested by the regular players.
1. There will be frequent playdates but not weekly.
It is not practically possible now. This is no more discovering and reviving unplayed games.
2. There won't be any polls to decide which game will be the next playdate.
Polls are not the best way to know which game people want to play. They have become more like what is your favorite game?
3. No more support for pirated copies.
It's pita not only for you but also for the server admin to make sure the your client is compatible with server version. you're welcome to join the server with whatever game client but there won't be any support from our side unless it is genuine. you have to make sure you are able to join the server yourselves.
4. Unless announced the playdates are not open for all.
You need to confirm that you are interested to join before hand either on thread on steam group discussions.
For playdates like CSGO Competitve, you need to commit to a full match. Leaving in between is frowned upon.
If you have any useful suggestion, please PM ManiDhillon, d3p or me.
