    Well everyone tonight is the night for our first Mech Assault tournament. It will be 3 rounds. There are 8 teams of two players. I just did the random drawing. I did it the old fashioned way by writing everyones gamertag down on a small piece of paper, folded it up and into a hat it went. Teams and matchups happened in the order i drew the names. So here are your teams and first round Matchups

    First Round Map is River City
    Match 1
    Team 1
    Scar
    MrDarthVader

    vs

    Team 2
    Metropolis
    PlayerLUV


    Match 2
    Team 3
    CaptDS9E
    Union Carbine

    vs

    Team 4
    TheBard
    Mr Chicken

    Match 3
    Team 5
    Sherbz
    Beermonkey

    vs
    Team 6
    Bassmassa
    jubjub75

    Match 4
    Team 7
    High Priest
    PoisonJam

    vs

    Team 8
    Vegera
    Nightwing


    Well everyone there are your teams. Everyone should decide who will host there Match tonight so it can get started. Now below are the rules . Every tourney must have rules

    1-Of course the game mode is team destruction, default game settings and no voice masking guys. Its annoying.

    2-You can use any Mech you want. I was going to limit 1 mad cat per team but forget it. I dont want to hear any crying out there :)

    3-After my first round match is over I will open up a room. One representitive from each winning team will come and report that they won . I then will randomly select the 2nd round matchups and the game map that will be used. After the 2nd round is over the winners from the two games will once again come to the room im hosting where i will assign the map for the final game. The winner of the 3rd round then will be the winner of the tournament

    4-Not a rule- once your eliminated I know a bunch of people are going to probably play Ghost Recon or Mech Assault so im sure for the there will be plenty of game play tonight. So stick around and wait for invites

    If you have any questions e-mail me and i will get back to you when i get home from work

    thanks

    Sorry to hear that Calvin, you should be with your family tonight.

    Guys, I know Chicken and Vegera are ready to go tonight. How long will each match be.. 15 min.? We'll both be on earlier if you want to get together for some fun/warmup.... and for the teams that get eliminated.. maybe some 4 on 4 will the winners are playing (notice I was looking for some battling after my initial match)

    I definitely think we should have a warmup match or two as a group before the tournament.

    Hey, Mr Chicken, It's a shame my gamertag isn't the GHOST, then we would be "The Ghost and Mr Chicken", which of course is one of my favorite old movies :)

    I doubt I will get in too early for warm up, but I should be there by 9 at the latest. It's Signing Day which is the biggest day of the year for a web site I wrote, and it will keep me hopping all night...

    I'm still in, but it looks like I won't be in until a few minutes until 10, so no practice session. If one of the other 3 guys wants to host, leave me a Private Message...

    My connection is not the best, so BeerMonkey, Sherbz, jubjub75--will one of you host? If I don't get an invite by 5 after or so, I'll start a room, but I'll look for the invite first. See you in a few hours.

    Rob,

    My connection is above average, I've hosted many 4-6 player MA games with no problems. I certainly don't mind hosting, I just won't be on early (it appears).

    If you (or Sherbz or jubjub75) are not on my friends list yet (hard to remember when I am at work) send me a friends request before tonite, and when I'll log on I'll start a game and invite you right away.

    Or, if one of you decides to host instead, just leave me a PM and I'll look for your invite instead.

    Michael,

    I sent you, Sherbz, & JubJub a friend request last night. I won't be on until a few minutes before either. I've hosted some games, too, with few problems. Right after I posted the last message, I read the thread about upload speeds/hosting and I think my connection might be a little better than I thought. Either way, I'll see you tonight, until you're wiped off the map, that is.[​IMG]

    My connection is not very good, but I don't think it matters as much in Mech Assault, especially with only four players. Still if you can host Michael I think that would be best. Anyone here who isn't already on my friends list will be added before the match.

    So I guess that just leaves team 4 in need of a host. I don't have a very good connection, but I may be able to handle four people. Does anyone have over 100kbps upload speed? 'Cuz if you do, your connection is better than mine...

    Hey Rob, can you add "Player LUV" to your friends list for tonight? That's my friend, who will have the misfortune of meeting you and Scar in the first round tonight...

    jubjub75 here.

    Bassmassa, I hope you're ready to win, because I am, too. lol My connection is a little slow for hosting, but I'll be on a little before 10 if someone will send me an invite.

    This will be my first time playing against the HTF'ers, and I'm super stoked about it.

    See you then!!

    I am ready, Jubjub. You don't need to worry about winning; these HTF guys are pushovers. Seriously, tonight should be a lot of fun, I look forward to our pairing.

    Guys...

    I do appreciate everyone's thoughts for me.
    Arrangements have been made..so there really isn't anything more that I can do.

    And I really need to relax..so if you'll let me - I'm still in.
