As most of us know, there are two main communities in Sins of a Solar Empire, one for multiplayer and one for modding. Bar the occasional group of friends playing a mod on ICO together however, these two communities rarely interact with each other, besides occasional discussions of game balance.
Therefore I propose a little icebreaker in the true Sins fashion, complete with the typical disintegration of metal, screams of nuked worlds, and if we're lucky even the rare space pony sighting, that we've all come to know and love, regardless of which form of Sins we get most of our entertainment from. Yes, I think its time for the first ever Pro Player vs Modders MP game!
Of course as we are meeting in the Pro player's home court, I think in the interest of a semi-interesting game the modders will need a team advantage of some sort. Any ideas on the exact number of players on each team as well as the best time to arrange this will be welcome (I'd guess sometime on Thanksgiving weekend). And of course, if you're interested do let us know.
I'd like to have one pro player sort of be in charge of the logistics of making the game who promises to be there, presumably if any of the other pros don't show we can find substitutes at the game launch. As modders don't often log on to ICO don't commit unless you're sure you can make it at whatever time we agree on. Also if possible I think it would be nice for as many different mods as possible to be represented, but obviously filling the roster comes first.

I'll be poking around if I get the chance. Should be fun.
What's the TS channel?
You found it
but for those who didnt....
Alright guys, time to spam every other modder we know to find someone to fill Sinperium's spot.
You can still listen in to what we're saying, just so you know when "Oh crap I'm being attacked" and that kind of thing. If you need to get our attention you can still use the game chat, it will just save us time when taking to you and each other.
Take in a pro player!
5vs5 pros vs modders? Yeah, too easy I fear.
What he's proposing is 5 modders + 1 pro vs 4 pros.
Oh, I misunderstood.
On the one hand, that would be generous and something of a boon.
On the other, it would throw off the experimental nature of the beast.
Draakjacht and Ue_Carbon, can I assume you guys are in for sure? SpardaSon and all the pro players, if you can confirm that the 26th at 7:00 EST works for you please post, just to make sure we don't need any other last minute substitutions.
I'll be there
Hmm, like many people on the holidays I too am not at my usual residence, and it seems I'm not able to host from my current internet source. Thus if you know you can host okay and you don't see a game called "Pros vs Modders game", please go ahead and host the game, whisper us a password if need be. And please use your main and/or forum account names so we get the right people.
Sinperium was on the TS last night talking with Carbon and I. He got his nights mixed up and said that he would most likely be able to be there tomorrow evening (Saturday night). I doubt that i will be at home when it is scheduled to start but if I am, I'll be poking around.
I'm usually a good host. If it isn't up I'll get it going with a password. Just join the game channel and whisper for the password.
I should be able to make it tonight. It's a little early for me to say with absolute certainty but it looks good so far. I'll try to get my wife to eat lots of leftover turkey so she gets really sleepy early
Try sex her at 6pm then have a redbull/lucozade to recharge.
Well do everything possible to make it certain. I almost had you replaced but then my replacement had some holiday difficulties of his own. It will likely be difficult to get another modder at the last minute.
I'll be available for the game today. Forum name and ICO name are the same: SpardaSon21.
"THIS IS SPARTA!!!!"
From other team, 30 minutes after the start:
"How the ...?"
Yes, I'll try to post it.
Alright guys, just to make sure there are no more time zone misunderstandings, the game starts in about 30 minutes. If you're on the list above you better not start anything time consuming in the next half hour.
Come along, you pros
Any non ICO regular who wants to join feel free to do so!
Carbon...it's 7:08 PM.
