Call to Action: Positron's Ally Event
« on: September 12, 2012, 06:58:32 pm »
Hey all, it's time for our next event!  The coordinators at the Titan Network have been discussing what we can do to keep fans engaged and having fun, and I think we've come up with a pretty good follow-up to the Unity Rally this past weekend.  I'm going to let Maressa, purveyor of our last project, announce and give the details of this one as well.  I know I'll be there, and I hope you will be able to come, too!

Ever since our Rally last weekend Tony and I have been working on what our next in game event should be. Rallies are great but we wanted to something a bit more active and something that non VIPs could get involved in. We also wanted something that would be a nod to the developers without whom we would have no game to play. With all of that in mind I would like to announce:

Positron's Ally

Two days of Task Force fun.

On Thursday September 20th at 9PM Eastern/ 2AM GMT

And

Saturday September 22nd at 12 Noon Eastern/5PM GMT

Join TonyV, myself and the entire Titan Network team in running the Positron Task Forces, part one and two. In the world’s biggest synchronized Positron Task Force group across all the City of Heroes Servers.

Come with a team already formed or make yourself a PUG while you’re there!

Take screenshots, chat with old friends, make new friends and listen to your favorite server based radio stations.

Same here. I can't make the Thursday one, but I'll do my best to make it to the one on Saturday.
Hope to see you there!  ;D

Hmm ... will try.  I may not be home in time Thursday night, and the Saturday one is a bit early here in the Pacific time zone.

I'm going to try to make both. The Thursday one kind of depends on (a) how much homework my kids have and (b) how good they are at procrastinating.

Thursday will be too late for the European Time Zone, but Staurday is going to rock!

That's actually why we're holding it twice, and why the one on Saturday is a bit earlier.  We know that some people work on weekends, and European gamers especially miss out on stuff that takes place too late.  We wanted to make this one as all-inclusive as possible.  Obviously, if you can come to both, all the better!  I plan on being at both and will be leading teams through.

To our friends in Pacific countries, sorry, but man your time zones are hard to plan around.  :)  (Still, if you're at home on Friday morning or want to stay up really late Saturday night, please do come!)

Much as I love y'all, I'm not staying up until 4am for you, but I'll do my best to be there for the Saturday one.

By the way, thanks for noticing that not everyone playing the game is in America. It's been great to be able to be a part of events, instead of sleeping, like I usually am when fun stuffs happening :)

I'll be absent for the Thursday run, but I should be able to wake up in time for the Saturday run.  (I'll be on Triumph.  :))

This is a great idea!  Liberty is kind of dead, so if nothing's going, I'll definitely hop over to another server for both dates.

I'll be there for both!  @eabrace I play on triumph too, hopefully maybe we can team sometime (not necessarily for this tf event, but that would be cool too)

The Iron Eagles, that crazy hardcore supergroup on Justice, meet on Thursday nights regularly.  We will answer this call!  (Particularly since it's hard for us to do high-level stuff, so this is tailor-made for us to put the most heroes into play.)

Hm, 9 PM eastern is 5 PM Pacific.

We will *attempt* to make it. The Horde may interfere. (By which I mean my kids.)

I suspect that if someone wanted to step up and run it, the official message could be modified to include offset times for players in other timezones.  Everyone understands that it's hard to have one person run everything, but it's hard to volunteer people a third of the way around the world.

If you can run a TF, you could lead a horde of them!  :)

Don't think I can make Thursday (isn't that 6pm Pacific, not 5pm?) but I should be okay for Saturday.  Sounds like fun!

Posted it as an event on a SG site I have access to!

Fun, fun!
