Fletch has kindly offered to host an evening in bomb disposal etiquette. Join him one Sunday to take part in his defusal trials.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes can be played by anyone regardless of whether you own the game. Simply download the concise defusal instructions for free online, and help Fletch and potentially others defuse bombs against the clock!
If you’d like to take part, pop in your availability on the linked Doodle on Discord and Facebook.
As 2020 draws to a close, we continue the momentum of our hosted events in December. Check out our schedule for the rest of the month – kicking off with another community quiz night, kindly hosted by Turbo_Phil!
As voted for at the start of the month, we’ll be hosting another Left 4 Dead 2 event this Sunday! Aiming to run through some more Versus and Campaign playthroughs – Let’s see what teams of four might be able to beat Futz, Arty_Ziff, Darrigaz and Kruthal for the title of Best Survivors!
Today also marks 2 years (!!!) since the last LAN event we held. While it was our original intention to organise and host another LAN event in the Autumn half term of this year, the global pandemic has obviously prevented us from going ahead with those plans. Many LAN organisers that I’ve spoken with are expecting their events to be on hiatus at least until the second half of 2021, though of course it’s anyone’s guess at this point. It’s still our intention to organise a LAN, but only once it’s absolutely safe to do so.
In the absence of any IRL event this year, hopefully the online community events have allowed you to continue to meet new ‘faces’, and keep in touch with people. Since March we’ve hosted 23 community events, and will be continuing them for the foreseeable future.
We’ve still got a list of things that we’d like to do outside of a LAN, but time and real-world commitments might impact whether those come to fruition this year, or if they’ll end up waiting until 2021.
As always, feel free to shout at us with any feedback or ideas! Last time we asked, we got some fantastic points raised which have all had a really positive impact!
This evening marks the release of the Last Stand community update for Left 4 Dead 2 (18:00 BST), the first major update for L4D2 in years! Versus mode has been confirmed (apparently with some ‘special features’) and we’ll be hosting some Versus lobbies this Sunday in case anyone wants to take a trip down nostalgia lane! Join us from 8pm, maximum zombie thrashing!
