I was thinking of doing some kind of crazy kickoff for RO2's launch. Anyone else interested?

I could borrow or set up a live stream for it. The idea is pretty much play for 24 hours as a send off to one of the greatest games ever made. Hopefully with a set time we can get huge peak numbers for RO before RO2 launches.

*edit*

Note that you don't have to play the full 24 hours to be part of this :p

Perhaps I could get another server going just to say goodbye. Back at the last mod night I called the server the 32 player server the last waltz :p.

Twould be awesome, especially if the server had a lot of those old custom maps that were lots of fun, not a 24/7 danzig sendoff.

Ignoring the creative ways the community will deal with the final moments before getting their hands on RO2, I hope TWI has some sort of event as well? I could see having the few days before RO2 comes out being a free weekend of some sort for Ostfront.

Yeah sounds good. It would be nice to get all the folks from the forums in one server and on TS3. It would be a good way to get to know everyone.

Not entirely sure about that.

The whole point of HOES's accessibility, is so a lot of players don't get scared in their first contact with the game. Giving them to try Ostfront first, kinda defeats that purpose.

Remember that people are used to franchises in which the sequels are merely a re-skin of the predecessors. A lot of people will judge HOES from Ostfront, thinking it's gonna be the same.

But then I'll pass out and won't be able to play RO2 :D!

I was thinking about that too. Maybe Ill time it so there will be a chance to sleep and then wake up to RO2. Probably on the weekend before the launch date.

I really hope they don't. I'll even go as far to say that TW shouldn't bundle OST with the preorder of RO2. It's really a struggle for new players to get into it, I know from watching friends become frustrated when playing for the first few times. I think the biggest reason for is the lack of good bots and training modes for people to get comfortable with the controls and gameplay. In RO2 it will give new players a much better chance at success and enjoyment early on.
