I understand Crit has a Discord channel with a lot of members on it; but I didn’t see any implications that Crit / Tek Syndicate has any official gaming servers. I was wondering if anyone in this community has a server up for any games such as: Minecraft, Arma, Counter Strike, Battlefield, Distance, Chivalry, etc. (MMO Guilds are also cool).
If not, does Crit have any gaming events online and how would I be able to find out about them?
We are getting an upgrade soon and should be able to (maybe) run a server out of our place or possibly at the hub downtown. I won’t have time to be the main admin though… We should get more into gaming together. I’ve been doing a lot of co-op gaming lately (trine, ghost recon, divinity, etc.) and it’s plenty fun.
We’ve discussed doing maybe some tournies but a few dedicated servers/lobbies would be fun. Logan tends to be spontaneous so as of late I’d just keeps your ears open and you should see something at some point!
These things are tricky. I’ve seen huge communities getting there own server for games only to see them die very quickly. I think it would really have to be a game the majority of the community wants to play and agrees on first before going through the trouble of setting it up. If it does take off and people love it, renting a dedicated server from a site would be best in the long run so you don’t have to have one running from the office 24/7. Also, it’s a hassle. If anything goes wrong with it someone will constantly have to have access to it for server resets and issues. Seeing how busy you guys are at the office I think it would be pain more than pleasure.
I suppose a steam group could work. I haven’t seen to many people in discord using the voice channels yet but we are trying to get some events happening soon. Maybe some tournaments and just casual hanging out, having some beers and playing stuff.
