This post serves for the organization of our WarCraft 3 groups - all relevant information will be edited into here. The previous WarCraft 3 thread can be found here
There are two GitP WarCraft 3: The Frozen Throne groups - one focusing on custom maps, and meeting on Fridays, and one focusing on melee (i.e., normal WarCraft), meeting on Sundays. There is a also a third GitP group focusing on DotA, but it is independent of the group organized within this thread; the associated thread can be found here
(warning, no guarantee of this link being updated, can be outdated). There is a fair chance of meeting some of us in the BattleNet on other days, too, so if you want to play, just come and see whether some of us are online. Our channel bot can help you with that.
The people who expressed interest in the custom map group are, so far (BattleNet names in brackets):
The people who expressed interest in the melee group are, so far (BattleNet names in brackets):
Anyone else who wants to join in, feel free to do so. The more the merrier.
Meeting place is the Azeroth
server (USEast), channel op GitP
The official meeting time is for the custom map group is every Friday, 4 PM EST
(=GMT-5). For the melee group it is every Sunday
, around the same hour. However, the hours are just a guideline; typically, people can be found online long, long before that. Of course, these meeting times are always open to discussion, if people should prefer a different time.
Also feel free to use this thread to arrange spontaneous games.
I suggest putting each other on our friend lists to make seeing who is online easier.
4 PM EST corresponds to the following times in various time zones:
1 PM Pacific = 2 PM Mountain = 3 PM Central = 4 PM Eastern = 5 PM Atlantic = 10 PM Central European
We have our own channel bot, GitP@USEast
, by courtesy of Leper_Kahn and Cynan Machae. Its capabilities and functions are described here
. For optimum functionality, it would be helpful if everyone added the bot to their friend-lists. The most useful command probably is ".fl", which causes the bot to tell you who happens to be online currently.
