Prologue

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.


Playdates Revisited


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.

5. Commitment
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.

Donations: Servers cost us money, be it rent or electricity. If you feel like donating, be it any amount, even could just
be a cost of a large french fries, private message us. This is strictly voluntary and there won't be any leverage here or any extra ammo for you in game.

Info on upcoming playdates etc will be posted soon.

Dam, I the Cs: goes server permanent? I just deleted my cs:go :(
why delete? you could keep a backup in DVDs.
No dedicated server for CS:GO for tdf users. We host the servers in the time of playdate.

There are many Indian pub servers available around mumbai area.

Yes. it will be permanent as long as the money flows from people here.

i want to play CS:GO with you guys...so please fix a playdate fore CS:GO....

Today we are testing CS GO server. So add us in Steam and ping us after 8.30pm. (Play starts around that time.)

Does anyone knows how much more data I would have to download if I purchase CS:GO from Flipkart?

Only the updates, i guess.

@Digi : This thread was supposed to be our official Playdate Thread, NOT FOR ANY SORT OF Discussion. All the discussions were supposed to be in the other thread, which you just closed.

@Digital Fragger: That is some nice prologue. But you should have mentioned the link to this thread in the last post of the former thread. :p

Anyway, I had tons of fun while hosting for TMNF playdates, and it was an awesome feeling when so many of us participated and played some of the newly discovered tracks (like Golf!)! I even bought an XBox controller just so that I can play TMNF better!

But after the initial participation, life dragged me towards more busy tasks. I still am busy. For eg.. I have to leave for office even today.. on a saturday.. :'(
But I will try to organize more TMNF or any other racing game playdate in the future. Thanks for such writing. First post looks good. :)

^^ TMNF was pure fun. We need one PD for TMNF. But the trend these days are, Killing Floor and CS GO, which are very competitive and fun simultaneously. So, i suggest you join in any of these games, when you are free.
