December 2016 Monthly News aka WARMAS X ANNOUNCEMENT

by Satros Leader Dec. 23, 2016

Dec the halls with bells of Warmas! It's your boy Satros here giving you your monthly War Clan holiday greetings card.

This will be a special monthly update that focuses on our 10TH annual gaming event, Warmas.


*WARMAS ANNOUNCEMENT
Warmas is our yearly gathering where we play a handful of games and do silly things as a large group. The event will be split into, 2 days, Warmas Eve and Warmas.
Warmas Eve:
January 6, 2017*
Games: Overwatch, Golf With Your Friends, Tabletop Simulator, Grand Theft Auto: V

Warmas: January 7, 2016
Games: Killing Floor 2, Rune: Halls of Valhalla, Unreal Tournament 2004


*WARMAS GAMES*
Instead of our usual "Latest Games" section, these are the games we play during Warmas and the kind of activities we will be doing in them.

Rune: Classic is the game where {{WaR}} was first founded. The gameplay is sort of like Unreal Tournament but hack-and-slash. There are tons of fun maps and mods and we play it every Warmas as a reminder of our roots. One map in particular, Mt. Everest, a map where to point is to climb to the top, is always a good time when everyone is drunk during Warmas.

Unreal Tournament 2004 is another classic Warmas game. Typically, we will divide into two teams and play instagib (that's 1 hit / 1 kill with beam snipers) CTF. Each year results in an epic struggle and a lot of good times.

Killing Floor 2 is the sequel to Killing Floor 1, which is another game we play every year. Killing Floor 2 will replace Killing Floor 1 this year since its basically a more updated version of the original. Usually, each Warmas we use "British Line Tactics", which is when we all back up against a wall with single shot rifles and do our best to mow down all the Zeds that approach.

TableTop Simulator is a simple physics based game for playing tabletop games with friends. This year, we will most likely play some funny games or Secret Hitler while we are either waiting for everyone to show up or are winding down for the night on Warmas Eve.

Golf With Your Friends is a mini-golf game with up to 12 people all taking their turns at the same time (so no waiting for other people to go). We're going to play a game with crazy settings with as many people as possible, it should be a lot of fun!

Overwatch is a class-based team shooter by Blizzard. It's kind of like a mix between TeamFortress 2 and MOBA games like DOTA 2. We will most likely play some crazy custom games 6v6, such as all Roadhogs with faster cooldowns for some insane hook action.

Grand Theft Auto V is the latest Grand Theft Auto game and has lots of fun things to do such as missions, races, and just fucking around. We will probably do some wacky races or just generally screw around with other players on it.


We hope you will all join us on Jan 6st and Jan 7nd to play these games and more for Warmas Eve and Warmas!


October 2016 Monthly News

by Satros Leader Dec. 4, 2016

Sup octobozos. It's your boy Satros here giving you your monthly War Clan ye olde rap concerto.

Lately we have been playing Overwatch, TableTop Simulator, and Golf With Friends.

Special thanks to everyone who showed up to our third ever Canadian Halloween event, it was a great success! Good work on the costumes! We started off with a costume party drinking and shooting the shit on Skype then moved into playing Killing Floor 2, Tabletop Simulator, Halo 5, and GTA V. One day when I stop being lazy and/or become permanently disabled I will edit together some of the footage.


Slack:
We now have a War Clan group chat with multiple channels on Slack at https://thewarclan.slack.com/

Slack is group messaging system with many cool features. Slack has free apps for all major phone platforms, as well as a desktop and web app. This is now our primary way of communicating. So whether you check it regularly, check it occasionally, or only look at it when someone mentions you in chat, its worth getting. If you would like to join, just send me (or any other member already in Slack) your email address and we will send out an invite.


Latest Games:

This month we have been playing Overwatch, TableTop Simulator, and Golf With Your Friends. You can see which nights we are planning on playing what on our #schedulesays channel in Slack.

Overwatch is a class-based team shooter by Blizzard. It's kind of like a mix between TeamFortress 2 and MOBA games like DOTA 2. This is game is fun as hell, whether we are tryharding or playing meme-teams, this game is great to play with a group of friends. TableTop Simulator is a simple physics based game for playing tabletop games with friends. Lately, we have been playing Dungeons and Dragons with Zaifos as our dungeon master. Most of us really have no idea how to play but its been super fun, so feel free to join if you are at all curious. Golf With Your Friends is a mini-golf game with up to 12 people all taking their turns at the same time (so no waiting for other people to go). It's a great chill game and you can play with some crazy settings, I highly recommend it.

That's what we have been up to lately. If you are interested in playing with us just pop in Teamspeak. We are in there most nights sooner or later.
