LET'S MEET UP EVERYONE (or meet-up session as some perfer to call it.)(TIME DECIDED (AND UPDATED)!)
(with the huge... letters cuz that's what I need! :P)
Hello fellow vikings!
Are you looking for a fun way to spend your day? Yes (You.Do)? Then let's meet up! ^_^ You don't need to be the same clan to do so, do ya? Sure ya' don't! ^^
But like every fun thing- this one has rules too:
- No swearing! Please...?
- We will find time that is good for everyone, okay? xD I know that some live in different timelines which is excactly why we should all come up with time when we are doing this! ^_^
- I don't know if any clans have war between each other- but if they do: Well- you'll have to deal with that! ^-^;
- If you want to come to this... meet-up session then tell me to write your name below! ^_^
People that are coming:
The Blue Fury
And that is all for now- like I said- we will think about the time! :)
Also- sorry for the short post, I do feel a "little" tired and I have to get some more trophies for clan, so yea: see ya! ^_^
This meetup is canceled as long as the chat isn't fixed, sorry everyone: but it's not working for me, and I am pretty sure it's not working for a "few" other people as well.
UPDATE 2 (THE MAIN ONE):
The time... has been decidet...
Sunday, January 26, 2014 at 10:00 AM, (In U.S.A Los Angeles)
(If you want to know what time it is at your place, tell me your location and I'll let you know! ^_^)
What we gunna do (all copied from Rumil):
Who can join:
Everyone is invited, Clan members as well as strangers. The only goal is to have fun, so the more we are, the better. Of course, a good thing will be that anyone who wants to join reads carefully this post so that we won't have too many coordination issues.
What we're gonna do:
There're plenty of activities we can do!
At first we will gather together, adding some friends so that visiting will help if we lose each other. Then we'll go for a first flight around the School (I'll lead that: for other flights we will choose another leader). After that we will decide each activity through vote.
Hide and seek
A classic. I'm not very use to it, so if someone knows better please let me know.
We choose who counts firing at each other: the one who clearly receives more shots is in. Otherwise volunteers are accepted.
Basic rules: no visiting, no change zone, no glitch caves – unless otherwise said.
The opposite of hide and seek: one hides, the others seek. Here again visiting is forbidden, but the one who hides can choose to change scenario or to use glitch caves (not going too far, though...).
Kind of aircraft in flight: one leads, the other try to do exactly what he does. This should be epic if it works: imagine just only ten riders flying in synch: awesome!
We can start going slowly. The leader gives a hint of the direction he wants to take sketching the move, and after a second everyone does it. Eye on the leader! (who'll be chosen by voting)
Free fall challenge
There's a pretty high cliff on the west side of Berk (I'll post map and images). Flying there will take some minutes but once here we can go for an amazing challenge: two Vikings at the time will go for a free fall and try to come as near as possible to the water before calling their dragons to rescue them (press “R” and then spacebar). Someone will judge by the water level.
Here the instructions on how to fly there.
Feel free to suggest anything!
Alternative way of communication:
We're all aware of chat issues, so it's better to be ready if chat won't work. I'm trying to build an emoticon-based code and I may need some help. Of course, even if for him chat is not working, everyone can see it, so details will be given there. For now,
1 Formation flight (choose the leader by shooting)
2 Yes (in voting)
3 No (in voting)
4 Meet in Berk (= Stoick's place)
5 Play Hide and seek/Sardines (choose counter/hider by shooting)
6 I can't talk (= chat issues)
7 Meet in the Wilderness (= wild life is pirate life)
8 I have to leave (for higher goals...)
9 Play Free Fall challenge (implies meet in Berk)
10 Meet at the School (= dunce hat)
The meeting points are: the clearing above the Hatchery at School (where the Botanist crops withered); Gothi's house in Berk; the lake island in the Wilderness.
The first meeting point: The clearing above the hatchery. i'll put up a screenshot soon if you didn't understand! ;)
So uh... yeah... I guess- any questions- feel free to ask!
Sounds fun! ^-^
My Viking's name is Allyssa, and she has a Deadly Nadder.
I'd go depending on the time and location.
Yeah, you can call me "Mud" for short. XD
Sounds good to me! Keep me posted if you can.
If it's not a really early/late hour I'll be there;)
My data's are in the signature (main account better) and my time zone is +1 GMT. Let me know!!
Hey! I want to come! :) My time is eastern time(im in america) Plz let me know what time you decide :)
same i'm in america too and i want to come
We should do this more often! Like maybe once every week or two, it'll be fun!
I am also in america :)
I'll like to come as well depending on the time. My character name is the same as my forum name, snhuckles, :)
Is this.. in game, you mean? If so, I'd be happy to join you all. I'm usually up and about from 2pm to 2am Eastern time (GMT-5 (-4 dst))
Quick Reference, that's 7pm-7am GMT, or 1900 hrs to 700 hrs.
It might be good for people to list what times they can be on and list them, in gmt, next to their names so it's easier to figure out a common time.
Bring some cake too.
y viking name is Ellie and i have a nadder when are you guys on?
Hi my name's Min Bin in the game, and my dragon's name is Jawface. hope im still not late for this! :)
Thanks so much Lemoney! I'll try to keep in touch and keep updated on the post! thank you again! :)
My viking name: Rashel Sorethon
My dragon's name: Jezabel
My working chat name: Rash
and im in the U.S.
I want to Join too. I'm not late, right?
Can I join please?
I would like to join this too, if it's alright.
Aw, thats sad :( Everybody keeps talking about chat problems, but so far, i havent had a lot of problems. Hope they fix this soon!
Inna, when is this meeting going to take place? I fear that if you wait for the chat to be fixed for good we'll be no more young when we eventually meet;)
So may I suggest some emoticon-based code for those who won't have the chat working? After all, a lot of things can be done without the chat. I'd love if we try to fly in formation - can you picture that? Fifteen dragons (more or less) doing the same thing (more or less) at the same time (more less than more). It would be great!
I'll wait for updates and I hope this meeting would take place, sooner or later, 'cause it's a great idea!
I may suggest the weekend, around 8.30pm GMT. That means that the european zone is between 8.30 and 9.30 pm, and US are between 12.30am and 2.30pm. I know Asia is mostly left out with this choice, but it's impossible to find a suitable hour all around the world. Maybe a double meeting so that everyone is fine?
When chat does now work(I'm assuming ingame) it is a conection problem between your computer and the server, refreshing can fix the problem.
most of the times (but not always) it works. The problem is, as soon as I visit someone, chat stops working again. I can't refresh everytime, and by the way it takes some minutes to redownload the files.
Thanks for the advice, anyway!
um i guess i'm not coming, sorry, i have to travel with my brother and find cure to, um nvm, i guess you guys don't know the story!, anyway i'm sorry, not coming, sorry again, see ya guys!
it doesn't want to be advertising - let's call it a dry run. Here I'm planning an open meeting this Sunday. Whoever wants to join is welcome! We can see what can be better done and do it that way when the real stuff will be planned;)
Hope to see you there!
I'll try and get there - it sounds fun! And I need to try and get re-acclimated with the game, so something that's not part of monotonous gameplay seems the best way to do it.
Also, replying here 'cause I didn't want to 'invade' another clan XD
I'd be glad if you join us at the meeting! It's my first attempt to break the game routine and I hope it'll be good enough to think about another:)
And you can invade my Clan's page whenever you want as it is expressly an open thread. Just be careful to the dnrdttp* alerts - they're almost everywhere and their infringement can make me reeeally angry...;)
*do not reply directly to this post
Sounds fun! now all that's left to do if figure out what 21:00 is in central time
21:00 gmt is 16:00 est, ie, 15:00 cst, which is 3pm.
mst - 14:00 (2pm)
pst - 13:00 (1pm)
For anyone else (from the americas, in particular the US) who may be curious. ;)
thanks so much, I did a bit of a mess with times on the meeting post! I link here and there a timezone converter that will work better.
Sorry Toxic, I preferred to put GMT time so that conversions will be done from the "starting" point (selfish UKs...)
Thanks Shadow, and it's fine Rumil :)
and take your notebook so that we can see what works and what not. Useful test for the bigger meeting.
Happy you're coming! Wow, this gonna be great:)
