Welcome to the new and improved Thursday night experience, the Chozo Crazy 8s Game Night!

 

CC8%20Game%20Night%20Logo.png

 
Grown out of 3 seasons of Mario Kart 8/DX tournaments, we're expanding out to include multiple games, sometimes in the same night! Smash 4? Sure! Mario Kart 7? You bet! Other things that we haven't even thought of? Most likely!
 
The basics are the same as the tournament:
 
Who: Humanz!
When: Thursday nights, 8:30 to 10:00 central.
Where: Your couch. But also in Discord (check out the voice chat thread for info).
Why: Because I'm The Man, and I say so.
 
Speaking of Discord, as of now we'll be using the same game-specific voice chat rooms, but using the all-encompassing #chozocrazy8s text channel, rather than splitting that up between games. This text channel is marked NSFW (mostly for fun because we can, but also because Plant likes to post pictures of animals pooping, and Morgil posts ... everything else), but don't let that scare anyone away. It's just a check box that I hit in the setup, and doesn't indicate that the company behind Discord is monitoring us any less or more than they would anyway.
 
For anyone who's new to the Thursday night fun, just contact me or another member that you know who has access to the Discord server, and you can get an invite link. The server itself is not set up as an public server, so I won't post an invite link here.
 
We also have a bot, the CC8 Helper Bot, that can tell people what the upcoming Game Night events are, and keeps track of who has what games that they can play, to help decide what upcoming events will be. Don't hesitate to ask it questions, and enjoy its weekly reminders of what the current event will be on Thursday nights.
 
Season 4 has its first event on November 30th, and this thread will be our new home for write-ups, general discussion, and announcements. Unlike previous seasons, overall season stats won't be tracked, but for nights that we play Mario Kart 8 I'll still do basic scoring. Otherwise write-ups will recap as best I can who "won", depending on the games we're playing.
 
Looking forward to many fun nights to come - thanks for playing!

We're starting season 4 up already? I thought we'd have a few more weeks off, first.

You had a week off, what more do you want?

 

Shape up, mister, and get your butt in gear! If you don't wanna show up, I'll give your varsity slot to someone with the gumption to take your place! Hooaa!

 

(Or something like that, whatever football coaches say).

Season 4 will be brand new stuff, don't need a break for brand new stuff! We'll play Smash, Zelda, Jackbox, and hopefully so much more. We need more people with ARMS and Splatoon though for sure...!

Is the plan for us to pick one game of the night, or are we bouncing around rooms and games. I.e. If plant is running a smash room and teeter is running bombs only kart battles at 50cc ?

Do we even know what game we're playing this week? It's only two days away and we don't even have a plan yet? You sure you don't wanna take an extra week to iron out the details?

 

(also, the main reason i assumed there'd be a few more weeks off before starting the next season was cuz i thought i remembered us doing it that way the last couple of years)

@Robok - It sounds like Mario Kart 8 is gonna be taking a long break after this week. That's why we're gonna play new stuff. Since I think we all could use a break from it. --- @Morgil Remember Torgo made a new bot to ask what this week's and next week's plans are. :D I'm sure we'll all discuss it more Thurs night.

I wonder if it'll just be whatever mood people are in when they hop on Discord at like 8 PM CDT to prep.  Like somebody can name something and see if that generates any interest for booting that game up.  If there's no interest in a particular game for a given week, we could just take the week off or just play solo stuff.

 

I will say the closing of Miiverse has had an effect on the online modes of some Wii U and 3DS games in that if we wanted to do something like CS vs. the world randoms, we might now have a harder time finding online matches/races/etc.  But the state of the hacking communities on Wii U and 3DS doesn't help in finding matches either since both platforms are now hacked to shit too.

 

I'll do a rundown of at least what I now or have an educated guess on:

Mario Kart 8:  The communities that might have been present in the past probably all have moved on to Mario Kart 8 DX on Switch.  We could still do friend-only races on Wii U though since finding races with randoms will not go so well (especially finding non-hacked lobbies).

 

Mario Kart 7:  Same.  We might be able to do at least friends only races since finding randoms would probably be an exercise in futility (especially finding non-hacked random lobbies).

 

Kid Icarus: Uprising:  People mostly hate the land fighting controls and overpowered weapons/powers, so I don't expect anyone to start up any type of lobbies.  Even if there might be interest in booting this up, finding a non-hacked lobby will be extremely futile.

 

The Wii U Call of Duty games (Black Ops 2 and Ghosts):  Everyone has moved on to non-Nintendo platforms.  Unless some people don't mind getting these games on the cheap for some private friend only lobbies, it's not worth playing these games anymore.  The connections are horrible with so few people and these games make use of lag compensation which now makes the horrible lag worse for many players.

 

Super Smash Bros. 4:  There might be enough players left, but it probably will be difficult to find non-hacked lobbies when playing against randoms.  Friend only matches should be ok, albeit maybe more laggy with Miiverse's end chasing away some players.  We're limited to four players per online lobby though, so we might have to make up "round-robin" rules or something.

 

Pokken Tournament:  The community migrated to Pokken Tournament DX, but in whatever version, online play is 1v1 only.  Friend only matches are possible, but we would have to work up some type of "tourney" rules since we couldn't just casually play it.  There probably isn't many Wii U players anymore and if there are, a lot of them probably do hacked matches now on Wii U.

 

That's all I know of for right now.

It'll depend on the week. In general, we'll do one game for all of us all night, like this week when we're all playing MK 8 DX. But if during the planning phase of a future week we decide that some people really wanna play Final Destination Fox Only No Items, and some people really wanna play Splatoon 2, we might have a night where we have two games going on. A situation like that might be a good case study for having a specific CC8 voice chat room, so we could all just be in there talking to each other, even when not playing the same game.

 

Do we even know what game we're playing this week? It's only two days away and we don't even have a plan yet? You sure you don't wanna take an extra week to iron out the details?

 

(also, the main reason i assumed there'd be a few more weeks off before starting the next season was cuz i thought i remembered us doing it that way the last couple of years)

 

This week's event has been known for over a month. I won't deprive you of going to Discord and typing "cc8 event 11/30" to see what it is. Although your lack of knowledge leads me to believe that I need to program in multiple @mention reminders to go out. Since I know how much you love them, maybe I'll set it up so that it PMs you the next event's details every day so you never forget!  :cool: 

 

If you're feeling pressed for time, you always have the option of not showing up this week. You won't blow your season stats anymore. :) (For the record, we only skipped Thanksgiving week at the beginning of last season. Our first tournament last time around was December 1st).

 

Regarding what we'll play, MK8 DX will always be our "default" game, since we can all play it (well, except G-tech). My plan is to discus and decide on at least the next week's game, and hopefully two events out, based on how much people know about their schedules. Games might be fluid in cases where things come up and all of a sudden half the people who thought they'd be there are gone.
