    Hello!

    I recently purchased Trench Run and got access to the Early Supporter Build. I've been playing some singleplayer and jumped online a couple of times and absolutely love the feel of the game. However, I always manage to show up when everyone else are away, sipping on their tea.

    Question.

    Would people be interested in arranging some sort of schedule as to when we could all jump online and play? Nothing obligatory of course, just a set time for people to gather around. I could very well spare about half an hour each day.

    Example. We schedule 19:00 EST as "game time." Now you don't have to show up, but if you want to play you know that others might be online at that given time. Making it easier to coordinate some larger matches.

    Is this redudant, not practical or do you guys already have something like this?

    I think most ppl gather at IRC #kag channel. Join it and I'm sure anyone will tell there if he wants to play :) You can use web chat (http://webchat.quakenet.org) if you don't want to download any program for it.

    If some sort of "game time" was agreed upon for each region I'd be happy to find some way to put it in the description for each region as well, fwiw.

    Similar to what Franik pre much said...

    Every time I play I'm tempted to go into irc and type in caps "ANYONE WANNA PLAY TRENCH RUN WITH ME!!!" Only reason I haven't is because of the day embarrassment that follows... And some annoyed people... Maybe create a separate trench run channel on irc... That u can bug people on...

    Another idea is to hold an event... That'll both get people to buy it and get more to play etc. thinking of something similar to an admins vs all... Kinda thing.., only there's no admins on trench run... So :/ devs vs all?

    ATM I just go on and play a few gams and spend all my money on drinks (level 7 drunk level) and then play a few more and then play basketball. Pre fun.

    Tho this sounds like a good idea... Just need to get that good time.

    There actually is separate #TrenchRun channel, not many ppl there yet tho. Join it NOW! Also it would be cool if there was official information about that channel somewhere

    What server is usually the most populated? EU or US?

    I know that the game was just recently made available for purchase, but what kind of player count do you guys usually see?

    Edit: Great, didn't know about that IRC channel!

    Depends on time mostly. But there are probably some more US players i think, not sure

    In future I'd rather merge #Trenchrun and #Kag into something like #thdgames. No need to further spread our community. Also I'm already in ~20 channels on QuakeNet.
