    Anyone want to play a warmup game? Someone could host a BTS pitboss and we could hone our MP skills while waiting for the game to start. :)

    I'd guess there will still be a couple of weeks of setup. A lot of the stuff we organizers talked about as individuals before making the announcement will now need to be ratified in team-based votes.

    I actually attempted hosting a Pitboss game last year and it failed miserably due to computer and network problems. So, I'm out as host.

    I could give hosting a try. Just remember my Windows machine is not 24/7 up and running.

    Oh wow, I'll play. Won't host though because with my lack of video card and onboard graphics, my comp is too prone to crashes from graphical overloads.

    Also, there are times (like in the last 2 days) when my parents shut off my internet connection for seemingly no reason =[

    Should I wait for others to get their leader selections in before I launch?
