Hey,

Over summer I thought it'd be cool to have some div2 QW going on, with voice comms and stuff.

So, every Wednesday evening quite a few of us div2'ers will be out and about, .spam'ing and .qw'ing some div2 games until they happen. Whether it's #mofo v #lostlegion or a div2 mix or somewhere inbetween, voice comms are going to be happening and it'll all be div2 / rookie standard players so hopefully no rapes.

We don't need a channel for this stuff as we're all in like 6 channels already, right? Just use the bot and if you are REALLY lost for a place to hang then you're welcome in #mofo, or a lot of people are in #qwrookie too.

See you on Wednesday for div2 wednesdays

define div2. protip: u cant!

just look at the difference between top4 and bottom4 clans in div2 this season

in the end you will just have to focus on gettin as even teams as possible, just like any other mix

other than that: good initiative! hope to see some summer activity

Don't think we need to define div2, everyone has a concept of what it means so so long as nobody takes the piss it should all be fine. It'd be cool if some div1's want to watch and listen in on the teamspeak/mumble and maybe give some feedback after, but not sure anyone will be motivated to do that - maybe if they're stoned or something I dunno.

Neat, first game of this is happening now on froschroom.com:27500, with one full mix team being on voice comms on voice.swingpanel.com!

edit: we had some good games, first div2 wednesdays was big success with all 8 players using teamspeak by the end (tho jOn without microphone), thanks to all players and specs and see you next div2-wednesday

Yeah this was really awesome with teamspeak and all!

I'd just hooked up my crt since a long time and fell right in the middle of this.

Finally experiencing teamplay like a real team. I had tons of fun! Also with the 2v2's that followed.

(Too bad all other audio got switched to my laptop speaker and the teamspeak on my in-ear headphones whenever I'm using voicechat software somehow)

Yep, was fun, though ts is distracting at the beginning, we'll see how it works out in the long run (didn't prevent me anyway from getting my traditional 'most deaths' award on all 5 maps)

Shame I missed it. Hopefully it will be same next week. I have tried doing similar to this a few time with kelts and all, but was hard to get people on and no shows
But maybe after EQL now people are more intressted in 4on4. So you can bet on me showing up next time, as soon as I get my sleep back!

Also LeopolD as I said before TS may take some time getting used to, when it not distracting you with voices it will be good
Maybe you like it more then binds like me after! hehe.

Well, I don't think of TS as replacement for binds, more like an addition for more casual stuff that is hard to do with binds.
You won't sit on TS and say "I am at, ehm, Mega and have, lets see, 100 health and some armor, oh yea, and RL"

I see teamspeak as pretty much a replacement for almost all binds - I remember Milton saying once that he barely looks at comms if he's on TS (correct me if I'm wrong) - important info can be said quickly, and you can point at someone to find out their status quickly too. Obviously re-iterating that red is safe is probably best done with lots of green text at the top of your screen, but important/urgent info is best on TS.

Adde commented on Weds "Is this really what div2 TS is like?", and then told people how it should be used - with item times etc. What I'd really like to do would be to get hold of a recording of a top level team's TS communications and put them to a demo, so all players can see how to use TS effectively - think it'd make a really entertaining demo too. Does anyone have any team TS recordings?

tl;dr: Any div1 team have a teamspeak recording from one of their games I can put with the demo to make into a video?

He hates those grenade fuckers.

I swear I had a better vid of tvs using voice comms, where they say a lot more numbers and stuff...
Does anyone have a team voice comms recording at all? I've been asking around a bit but with no luck at all. Would be really cool to do a video with the voice comms in audio, it'd teach a lot of people how to use them correctly...

Div2 Wednesdays etiquette guideline:
1) Players using Teamspeak 3 voice comms get priority spots, and first 4 go on the same team (unless really unbalanced)
2) Players further down the rankings get priority spots - if you finish top, or in top 3 a couple of times, you should sub for a spec who needs to learn more

Certainly if you're being top or near the top then you really really should be on voice comms, as then your team will be learning stuff.

Teamspeak channels can be created on voice.swingpanel.com by right clicking and choosing create temporary channel - they disappear when last person leaves. Call them 'div2 wednesdays 1' etc.

If the game starts and you think there's enough for another 4v4 or 2v2 whilst you wait, suggest it to the specs and go to the next available port.

Default server is froschroom.com:27500 , then 27501, 27502 etc.

Yeah it's on tonight but again unfortunately I can't make it... so please make use of the froschroom.com teamspeak server, .qw on IRC and gather this evening for div2 wednesdays! Remember the etiquette, keep those subs rolling with priority given to the players on teamspeak & the players who aren't top-fragging!
