Mockers Games Week #4 | PS3Blog.net

killzone2_smallHi everyone. On Saturday Doshin arranged a game and there were six of playing. It was a load of fun, but I understand why 2pm on a Saturday is a hard time to make. Usually I wouldn’t have been able to make it, except that my wife had the kids out.

There are over fifty members in the Mockers, yet I seem to be meeting the same ones online all the time. Maybe a group of ten or twelve of you. It’s great that you are playing, and I don’t want you to stop. What I want is to see all you others out there that are members but that aren’t playing. The purpose of a clan is to get together and play. I’d like all of you who don’t play with us to please make some time to play.

If you’re a player with a 0.4 k/d ratio, you shouldn’t be afraid to come out and play with those of us with higher ratios. Mine is 0.74, but I know that I’ll die in a confrontation with Doshin more often than not. Which makes it much more satisfying when I actually do kill him. 🙂

One game of 3 versus 3 on Saturday was pretty lobsided, and it wasn’t that much fun getting pummeled. But it’s always a learning experience, and you have to remember to try something new. I sometimes get into a rut and do the same thing time after time. I’ve heard it said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again, expecting a different result. So trying doing things differently. Use a different weapon. Use a weapon differently. I recently discovered that shooting my Saboteur’s weapon in bursts is a lot more effective than holding down the trigger. I’m also trying to aim at the head more, though it’s difficult. Try taking a different route. For example, I discovered that if you’re a Helghast on Blood Gracht, there are three ways out of home base, not two, as I initially thought.

So those of you who aren’t playing with us, please join us. We want to play together. If the times we play aren’t good for you, then suggest alternate times and we’ll try to oblige.

Time for gameplay this week:

Tuesday @ 10pm
Wednesday @ 9pm
Thursday @ 10pm

If nobody has set up a game, feel free to set up a game yourself. I discovered last week that games I set up can be laggy. So it would actually be better if someone besides me set up a game. Don’t forget to set the password to ‘mock789’, and to allow all players, not just ones at your rank.

    I having loads of fun playing with you guys. I’ll see what I can do to make it this week. I never know with School. Trying to finish college right now.

  • TCCCCnME

    Hey guys,

    Sorry I haven’t been on playing this weekend but I’m moving. I should be settled in by Tuesday so I will see you guys then. I will send a reminder to all the clan members on my friends list for our game nights. I know I have 30+ of you guys on there so hopefully you can come play with us.

    Henning whats you thoughts on trying some pistol only on one of our game nights this week. I think with 5 to 8 people per team that it would be pretty fun, and will help practice aiming. What do you guys think?

    I want to make sure that all of you don’t just know me by my PSN, so my real name is Adam.

    See ya on the battlefield!

  • epinky2295

    I should be able to play. (BTW my real name is Ethan)

  • Hentaku

    I shall be there for at least 1 maybe all three.

  • heh, my k/d ratio is 0.29!

    i’ll try to make it at least one of those nights.

  • DerShimon

    Sounds like a plan. Appreciate that we all might have busy lives and stuff – but I’ll try and make it this weekend. Can y’all just let me know what 10pm your time means for me in Sydney? I’m GMT +10 at the moment. Not sure which timezone you’re in.
    Also, I’ll only be able to make it on the weekend. If noone wants to set up a match, I’ll set one up at a time that is suitable for most of you and that I can still make it (ie. not 4am my time).

  • thepreppymonk

    I’ll be able to play :]
    Tues Wens and Thurs :]

  • doshin

    You’re just being modest. I actually stunk it up after you left.

    Anyway, yeah I’m still away during the week, but this will change soon. Hope to see more Mockers on. Henning, how many players are allowed in the clan? I think we’d need at least 100 to guarantee regular 16 man matches.

    Also, I thought Sat at 2PM was an easy time for people. What time works better on the weekends?

  • Sinlock

    I’ve been able to play quit a bit this week because we’re on vacation and stayed in town. I made it to Master Sargeant last night so I hope to play the medic role in our matches.

  • There are 64 players allowed in the clan.

  • Marauder3

    I’m usually on from 9PM – 11PM EST

  • JimmyMagnum

    I played like crap last week lol. I probably got maybe 5 kills and 30 deaths lmao. I haven’t played in a while before that, though. I should be able to make it back on thursday though. Not sure if I can do a whole round or not, going fishin friday morning

  • Hentaku

    @DerShimon
    The times are EST which is GMT -5 so its a 15 hour difference then minus an hour for Daylight savings. So if my math is correct it would be 12(noon) on Wednesday, 11 Thursday, and 12(noon) Friday for you.

  • DerShimon

    Alright then. So if I host a game on my Saturday at 11am, that would make it your Friday night 8pm. Might just do that for a KZ2 Friday!

  • My internet is acting up so I might not be able to play now.

  • we have a myspace click my name to see it

  • Hentaku

    @DerShimon
    If you hosted a game at 11am on Saturday, it would be 9pm Friday for EST.
    GMT +10
    GMT -5
    15 hour difference,
    -1 hour Daylight Savings, there’s a total of…
    14 hrs difference.

    You just minus 2hrs (14 – 12 = 2) from your time (11 – 2 = 9) change AM PM and its the previous day except after 2pm your time.

    Don’t forget the Daylight Savings Time! I guess you could say EST is -4 during spring and summer, and -5 during fall and winter. I know it can be a bit confusing but that’s the way it is over here.

  • Hentaku

    lol i forgot you Aussies are different for seasons too…

    -4 for your fall and winter
    -5 for your spring and summer

  • DerShimon

    Yeah that’s the thing. And all the countries that actually have DST switch at the same time. Eg. we switch back next week.

    Anyway. I’ll try and host a game at 11am Saturday my time, those more clever than I can go to http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ to figure out what that is in their local time : )

    Also, is there any other message board on this site or anywhere else where all the mockers get together to chat? I haven’t been able to find one here…

  • Hentaku

    @DerShimon
    Sorry, i couldn’t make that game, i was over my sister’s house for a ‘game night’ playing some board games with the family.

    Didn’t know Australia used DST as well. When you switch back it will revert to the 15 hr difference. We added an hour, i think it was the first weekend in March, so it was a few weeks ago.

    As for the the message board, only thing i can see is the live shoutbox in the upper right. Perhaps a forum/message board for the clan may be an idea worth thinking about. Especially if the clan will expand past KZ2 and into other games.
