yes, it was very superb.

Yeah, great fun, shame the game crashed :(

We were hitting saber pretty hard, and he still wouldn't die! He's like a cockroach :xp:

I think 7PM GMT is 1 or 2 PM EST. I can't remember.

I have yet to play a multi-player game but I have always wanted to. I'm sure you all could use some fresh meat. Anyone up for some target practice? I'll be there one of these days.

Good to hear it, Nairb. Look forward to you joining us.

We all have to start somewhere with multiplayer. It would be best for you to start with us "friendlies" rather than the Zone and it's host of anti-socialites.

I'm sure you fine folks will toast me, but I don't care 'cause I just want to play. I definitely won't be playing this Sunday though, got a hurricane coming, looks like, and I'm not sure what's going to be going on yet, or if I'll be alive! Just kidding. I'll be fine the force is with me.

09-21-2004, 08:23 AM
I think I should point out that we play Saturdays now. Just to letm other people know... if there are other people...

I'll get there one of these days if these stupid hurricanes ever stop coming and I can get my life back to normal and my phone line at home back up and running right. Oh, and I have the time. Now they tell us that Hurricane Karl is going to swallow up hurricane Lisa, the poor girl. There's this hurricane traffic jam right now in the Atlantic, it's a mess. Not to mention that Ivan has made a u-turn and is hitting us for a second time around these fracken hurricanes are a pane.

09-24-2004, 05:45 PM
Anyone plan on being there tomorrow at 2pm EST? (US eastern)

09-24-2004, 07:06 PM
I'm always there... it's whether or not I'm AFK :p

Admiral Vostok
09-24-2004, 07:22 PM
I'll be there.

09-25-2004, 04:28 AM
I'll probably be around on Saturday. Not sure about Sunday. I might be out.

09-25-2004, 10:04 AM

Well, now that Jeanne has passed through and there aren't any more hurricanes heading our way (at least for now), I might be there this time, maybe. Don't hold your breath. I still have a lot of clean up to do and having to go to work gets in the way.

Admiral Vostok
10-06-2004, 01:53 PM
Just a note to let everyone know I won't be in attendance for either game this weekend.

10-06-2004, 01:58 PM
No more pesky N-1's for a weekend I might practise a few new ideas for strats on Phreak oh goody.

10-06-2004, 06:10 PM
i also, will not be able to make it.
also, next weekend i'm working. so i'm out the next 2 weekends.

i shall return with a vengance in 2 and a half weeks (though it may be longer due to work).

10-06-2004, 11:40 PM
Is ANYONE going to come this weekend?

10-07-2004, 02:23 PM
this is a bad month for me, because we're covering the election at work. and that also means rehearsals for election night itself. and those rehearsals are on the weekends... :(

Admiral Vostok
10-15-2004, 01:22 PM
Will people be in attendence this weekend? I know I will be and I would like to see more of a turnout than the last few weeks.

10-16-2004, 12:30 PM
<-- at work... :(

10-16-2004, 12:46 PM
A Turnout Of Three will never do.

Contract Malairia If that'll get you off work just try and show up we're even starting to kiss getting steamrolled.

10-20-2004, 11:52 AM
i should be available for a game or 2 this saturday.

10-20-2004, 07:34 PM
Eh I'm out this week. Haven't been in a game for a long while now eh. I still have tons of work to do and help my father put together the tent(to long to explain what kind of tent it is and I'm tired).

10-24-2004, 12:36 AM
I will be here for Sunday. Saturdays are a pain for me, so I can't make it.


10-24-2004, 01:02 AM
I think we're best off Cancelling SATURDAY games until more people can start to make it on a sunday?

11-28-2004, 10:03 AM
Hey all

Sorry can't make tonight (Sunday 28th) as im about to leave for work...travelling! yah!

Back next week though


12-05-2004, 05:58 AM
Will anyone be there today? Last week only me and Viceroy turned up.

12-11-2004, 01:03 AM
Im going to try and make Sunday. Ive a friend who might come along..but he is a total noob. Fingers crossed...got work to do so i must crack on!


12-11-2004, 03:46 AM
Well if the teams end up lop sided before we decide which team he ends up on it'll help out a great deal.

Don't worry he'll have to learn quickly on how to sink or swim.

Now if only I could Blackmail er I mean persuade some of my friends to get this game...

12-11-2004, 05:56 AM
I'll be free, as the copy of Battlefront I ordered didn't arrive today, thanks to the post office, and christmas (two things which really annoy me at the best of times!).

12-13-2004, 05:05 AM
Shame no-one else was free this weekend.:mad:

12-15-2004, 02:42 AM
Sorry for the no-show.

Ive been setting up this wireless network and I have come up against all kinds of problems. However, fingers crossed, I have officially sorted it out.

So come hell or high water, i WILL be there Sunday (even if i have to pop to the local net cafe!)


12-15-2004, 03:24 AM
You know I'll hold you to that I'll flay those who break promises in future.:p

12-19-2004, 12:03 AM
Wireless networks have a LONG way to go I think. Spent over 100 on a pile of rubbish! Seems my router is playing up - exchanged it for a second one - same problem. yawn

Third time lucky?
See you tonight

I might bring my friend along to play - but be gentle


12-19-2004, 08:40 AM
Since PB is in limbo for some reason we certainly will be gentle.

01-23-2005, 02:42 AM
I will be there tonite. anyone else?


01-23-2005, 08:50 AM
I will.

Well it might be a bit of late notice, but I'll be online ready for a game of SWGB at 8am Brisbane time on Sunday morning. I believe that will be 10pm Saturday night in the UK, and 5pm USEST.

Hopefully someone sees this message... I would have posted earlier but I'm in the midst of moving house!

01-29-2005, 12:02 AM
I'll probably be there.

01-29-2005, 02:27 AM
I think I might be there, I hope so at least:D

General Nitro
01-29-2005, 06:55 AM
Wow, it's been a while since I've been on here. Lots has happened while I've been gone. Hopefully, I can make it to the game. I must warn you, I am extremely rusty. I haven't played since August. Good to be back though. So, hey guys.

01-29-2005, 07:10 AM
Yay we'll have a full house, don't worry Nitro we're all a little rusty.

Admiral Vostok
01-29-2005, 06:35 PM
Well only me and Saberhagen showed up, so we didn't play. Perhaps we'll try again next week.

01-30-2005, 10:38 AM
me and DM are waiting for you at this exact momemnt we thought you meant Sunday night for GMT well we'll wait till 10 PM

01-31-2005, 01:41 AM
And I thought I was going to be the one who got it wrong. ;)

Admiral Vostok
02-03-2005, 10:56 PM
10pm Saturday night in the UKSurprisingly I meant what I typed ;)
10pm Sunday is 8am Monday Brisbane time, when I have to go to work.

Let's try again this weekend.

10-04-2007, 07:32 AM
o_O Just wanna make a quick check (Only just got the game but I'm fairly proficiant at it), Is this just for Galactic Battle Grounds, or do I need the expansion pack?

10-05-2007, 12:05 AM
Hello there :)

We haven't had a game of SWGB in such a long time. In fact most of the posters in this thread have left LF.com a long time ago.

We haven't been able to successfully organize something in many years. You can ask DarthMaulUK for a game. He lives in the UK too, so it's better for logistics then organizing a good date that can satisfy the North Americans.

It was quite a pain when we had to do it with Aussies, North Americans and you Brits :) We did have fun though. Good times :)

10-05-2007, 12:14 AM
It seems my attempts to contact the others failed.

LIAYD, you got any of the new RTS games? Supreme Commander, CnC3, BFME2, Sins of a Solar Empire [Beta], or even Civ IV?

10-05-2007, 12:36 AM
Nope, been far from the RTS market for some time now. Most of the new games have been disappointments for me personally.

The last true RTS I really enjoyed was Dawn of War: Dark Crusade.

For a strategy fix, I prefer Medieval II:Total War/Kingdoms right now.

I have to try World in Conflict though.

10-06-2007, 03:37 PM
Ahem! attention all, the noob Hockeyruler has something to say.

if you go to igzones.com you can play galactic battlegrounds online (specificaly clone campaigns). currently there are two online right now. (playing it that is) certainly if you set up a date you could get more people?

that is all

May the Puck be with you

PS, did anyone see the Avs new goalie? looked pretty good even though he didn't play all game

10-08-2007, 12:18 AM
We actually do know about the Zone, but prefer to avoid it or try and play with friends we know and somewhat trust (as far as internet friends go).

I've had relatively bad experiences with online RTS games with random strangers and yes, I've played AoE2 on the Zone as well as StarCraft on that hellhole they call Battle.net.

11-10-2009, 07:23 PM
Zone died out ages ago
Best place for playing currently is GameRanger or Voobly.
