New to FITES, sort of...
« on: January 20, 2013, 12:54:38 AM »
Hi guys, I'm new to FITES, but not really. This will be my 3rd FITES. I thought I posted an intro sometime in the past, but I guess I didn't.

I'm Murdock from NJ LAN Party. I've been playing since the late Quake1 days. Moved on to UT, UT2004, and a little UT3. Then came BF2, BFBC2 and BF3. Real life has gotten in the way of my gaming, so the only real time I get to play is at LAN Parties.

We haven't held a LAN Party since December 2009 because of real life stuff. So, instead of holding LAN Parties, we have been attending LAN Parties. We've been to Showdown LAN up in Massachusetts, GLX, Maryland LAN Gamers, and FITES. We also attend NJ Gamers monthly LAN Party in Scotch Plains. 

I've been to the last two FITES 200 man LANs, and had a blast each time. I am dragging everyone I could grab to come to the 2013 party.

Glad to have you aboard! And glad to see a fellow ST fan :) Are you ready for Artemis?

Thanks!

And Yeah, we'll be ready. We have a fairly dysfunctional bridge crew, so I'm not sure how well we will do, but it should be fun. One of the last games we played, we even tried to shoot video in front of a green-screen. It didn't work out that well.

Will you have a TeamSpeak server at the party? We were thinking it could be cool if, in multi-ship games, the communications officer be on TeamSpeak with the other Comm officers. We have always wanted to try it, but we have never been able to get enough people together.

We'll certainly have a TS server up. We've done some ship to ship stuff in the past and it was kinda klunky but we'd love to give it another go. I'll be posting the Artemis rules/point system tomorrow. Signs up are open on the Intranet site.

Great! We'll get on that.
