    4pm would only give me about an hour to play on most days, but it's better than nothing. I really want to see some daily skirmishing going on instead of having to wait until the weekends. I'll probably be on a bit before 4pm just in case anyone is able to play earlier while we wait on everyone else to show up. We should check with our Steam friends as well to see if more will be interested who don't visit the forums. As long as the daily skirmishing "event" is at a single set time then I think it'll be easy to organize something.

    Since 4pm works best for us NA players, I would recommend that EU players could do their skirmishes an hour or two earlier (and stick around if they feel like it). I'm hoping we can get the ball rolling on this soon, since I tend to show up and watch as the occasional player joins and then leaves 30 seconds later, as if they're surprised that only one other person is in the server when it clearly said 1/80 when they joined it.

    What timezones people live in, will really determine when we start these games.
    3pm PT is actually 6pm ET, and I'd be interested more so after the family goes to bed, which would be between 9pm-10pm. So if 6pm-7pm worked for you Pacific time players, I'd be willing to log on most week days for a little while.

    I will make an effort to see if I can hop on also, I'm online and free generally past 6-7:30PM EST. And also guys, do not be afraid of hoping on a server and staying there for a few minutes because hopefully someone else will understand that the more join, the higher the chance others joining etc. Just make sure it is a skirmish server and not a drill server, no one really gets on drill servers if there's 3-5 people.
    wait, im not supposed to shoot my teammates?

    Actually, McMuffin, it would probably be useful if we used the drill camp to form a consolidated party that could then move to an agreed upon skirmish server. Might provide for a better way of consolidating random would-be loggers-on??? Never know until we try. We just have to come to the realization that we need to break away from our normal faction and just login to whatever drill camp is accumulating people.

    That is true, but, we should first meet on the skirmish server then go to the drill to organize. But I get what you mean

    I'm an 8pm guy myself since that's after I get off work. That's when I usually check if I'm not out of town. It'd be cool if people agreed on general times to come on. It isn't good enough to check the servers. Someone has to be the hero and go on first, then second, third, etc..

    If enough people have that mindset of, if I join, more will join, servers could gain 20 or so people maybe and that’s not bad to fight ten or so people.

    I'm often first, but second and third usually disappear very quickly. I don't mind hanging around in an empty server while watching YouTube videos on my phone for a little while, but not many others seem to have much in the way of patience. They were clearly interested in the fact that somebody was actually on, and then lost it quickly.

    I think it worked pretty well, I saw some people from this thread I think in the game and the attitude of "if you come, more will come" definitely worked and I think we climbed up to 20 people because of that. It works!
