sunday pub night, site updates + server alerts

pub night

bit of momentum happening with the alpha players joining. now that daylight savings is over it's a good time to bring sunday pub nights back. aiming for:

9pm (nz)
8pm (qld, nsw, vic)
6pm (wa)

site updates

you may have noticed these 3 things popping up in the right column:
Image

if someone is in the aus midair server it will say so there.

active twitch streams playing midair will also appear. it only shows one at a time and will prioritise official streams and then whatever the most recent one is. click on the menu item and the stream appears in an overlay. to view it in twitch.tv just click the twitch button in the player.

you can click the discord button in the right column to open a web version of bittah's discord (irc + mumble app). the button link is also the invite link which you'll need if you already have the desktop or mobile app.

server alerts

aside from the right menu showing when people are in the server, petty has also added a couple of nifty ways to get direct notifications.

discord bot
join the discord channel (click the discord thing in the right menu) and type: !notify aus 2
this will send you a pm when there are 2 people in the server. you can put in any number, it'll let you know (every 30 mins) when the server hits that number.
Image

steam bot
send a friend request to 'Midair Bot' and it should auto-accept. then same as the discord bot, type: !notify aus 2
Image

both bots work with any midair server so US/EU ppl can use it. currently only the aus server has the "aus" shortcut, for the rest you have to use the server name:

EU-Central General
US-Central Rabbit
US-Central Arena
US-Central LCTF
US-Central CTF
US-Central Arena/Rabbit/LCTF

eg: !notifcy EU-Central General 2

gw petty imo. both steam and discord have mobile apps, pro tip: open the app, then when your missus (or bf) is watching 'married at first sight' you can still get the notifications. then stand up tall, flip the coffee table over and say 'fck this, i'm playing midair'

Lucky we were being glamour boys and playing energy pack HO :)

BTW those turrets are really annoying to kill with splash

still dont know why everyone thinks iratus is so big, ski time flag to flag is similar to kryo and u can DJ base to base with a small ski like kryo...must be the amount of room out to the sides, maybe height of stand aswell

as an LT play list I think kryo, hilde, outpost and hypothermia are the best 5v5

min and cluster rail for lower numbers

7v7 LT is horrible and I dont think min supports 5v5 very well

we really should play sunset cove and the other stuff the yanks play all the time

We should PU.

5 vs 5 LT.

If we get more do 7 vs 7 or whatever numbers on a small base map.

Have some positions and competitiveness going, instead of retarded omg youtube midair glory shots and f****t fail passing.

f****t fail passing.


yeah u and marv can be pretty annoying passing on basic front to backs constantly

try one from the side or something for some variety then use shadowplay to capture it and upload to youtube and then post here and we can all watch it and stuff

16v16 base PUG tonight?
