Anyone who is interested in finding challengers for online gameplay, this is the place to do it!

Tip: Post your IM usernames to help connect with other players quicker!


Edit: Seeing as some people can't take a hint, "any posts not directly related to match planning/match results will be removed." Thank ya. :)

So whoever wants to have the floor wiped with their insignificant little behinds, feel free to sign up for your doom!

I am normally available from around 1800 (+1200) to about 0100(+1200). That translates into 6am - 1pm GMT...

So who's gonna take me on huh? >:)

EDIT: As had tried to say earlier, I prefer to battle against comps, and ally with humans. This is a valid battle preference that will assist when planning matches, so don't freaking delete it!!!

I can't play with you because I sleep when you play.

But I can play all days. Begin : 2:00 pm gmt and end : 5:00pm gmt.

Who can?
I use the GameSpy and my nickname is Startopia-france.:D

30th Jul 2002, 11:12
Startopiafrance, we've played eachother before! All you have to do is get up 2 hours earlier, and/or for me to stay up 2 hours later and there we go! We have a match!

When the school holidays come round you should find me on here until about 3am - 4am, which is 3pm - 4pm (GMT)

NOTE: This is valid bargaining that will assist when planning matches, so don't freaking delete it!!!

You are not in holidays????
I'm in holiday to 5st september...

Ho, please, tell me what hour we can play in GMT?

30th Jul 2002, 12:55
My holidays finished one and half weeks ago, and I wont have any more for about another eight. I'm working this weekend so I'll definately be needing my sleep, but the next weekend (generally Friday night for me = Friday afternoon GMT) I'll make a point of staying up until 'early' on gamespy.

Sounds good?

30th Jul 2002, 22:02
I am connected now. NZrevenge, are you cornerstone?

31st Jul 2002, 04:59
Uh... No. I'm NZrevenge, though lately my nickname has been [NAZI] NZrevenge, because I've started using gamespy for Halflife, and I so figured I should put my clan into the name...

I wasn't on gamespy last night, and wont be for atleast a week and half. I'm beginning to suffer from sleep deprivation and so I'm gonna try and cram in about 8 or 9 hours sleep (that involves me getting to sleep by about 10am - 11am GMT) tonight and tomorrow night. Then I have work all weekend. Then I have another crappy week at school...

NAZI is just a Day of Defeat (halflife WWII mod) clan name! All I can really say is that if I was a nazi, then the first thing I would have to do is start hating myself (I have African blood in coursing through my veins! A great travesty in Hilter's eyes...). I love myself too much to hate myself, and any possible paradoxes just annoy me. So in other words I'll try not to hate myself. And stuff...

As for playing you, sure thing. How about 5am on Saturday? Make sure you've update both Gamespy and StarTopia before the set time.

Mod Edit: As I don't want to contradict myself by making a post with no relation to match planning, I'll make hijack yours to make my OT comment. :) Personally, I think thats pretty sick you chose to join a clan with that name, clearly they are not actully nazi's, but still, it's just offensive and stupid. Why not just join clan [KKK]?

1st Aug 2002, 08:55
Since I can't hijack posts...yet I'll just have to make do with a new reply. So here it goes,

Maybe instead of being short for Natso, its an anamgram for New Australian-Zimbabwe Initiates.

2nd Aug 2002, 12:39
LOL, looks like I opened my mouth too soon AlphaOmaga (he PMed me on this and I thanked him for using his discretion and not bringing it up here).

Look, I am not a Nazi. The other members of this clan are not Nazis. There is something to be said for context. Day of Defeat is a World War II modification for Halflife (the mod makes it similar to Medal of Honour: Allied Assault). This game features Allies and Axis soldiers facing it off through cities and beaches and where ever else. As far as my very limited knowledge on World War II goes (I've researched about operations Neptune and Overlord, but nothing on the other side), I thought that the Nazis and the Axis were pretty much the same thing. Most other people who play the game seem to feel that way because the only people who ever moan about the clan name are people who haven't played the game. Remember, taking things out of context WILL leave you with the wrong idea.

There is a time and a place for everything (and if any of you ****ers bring up the holocaust, I will not be impressed.). There is a place where it is acceptable to be part of a clan called Nazi, and there is a proper place for further discussions on this topic. Instead of degenerating this forum into another fight, I would suggest that you bring any responses to me in the form of a PM. I will not responding to any more posts here on this matter, save for reminding you to PM if you wish to discuss it.

Hey Artic Wolf, you gonna play me on Saturday? If so, I've got work for one more hour than I originally thought, so it'll have to be a 6am GMT. You up for it?

11th Aug 2002, 21:06
I'm on hols from school until October.

Current avaliblity stands at:
After 4pm (GMT) on Sat and Sun
After ~11pm (GMT) Weekdays (depends when i get up)

This runs to anywhere from 10pm-1am (GMT) depending on when parents sleep (net servers in there room, they will turn it off :()

Oh, and sometimes I get short-notice shifts at work, so that's not 100% ;). Hopefully lots cos I need the cash.

Around at that time? Send me a message for a game:
AIM - DMA57361
ICQ - 106640647
MSN - DMA57361@hotmail.com

Or I'll be in IRC, channel #clan-phear on irc.quakenet.eu.org.

Hope to play someone sometime - should be good fun. :)

I'm up for a game. I live in Australia which could make it difficult. Midnight US-EST is 3:00pm here. So if I get up at 8:00am I could play someone in East US at 5:00pm.

Ahh, who am I kidding. I've got a crappy Internet connection as it is, without the ping to America. Any Aussies interested?

I don't know my IM username, but my e-mail address is:
