I have had an amazing time recently playing and speaking with some CoDHQ Veterans through CGNs and on twitter, not so much through the forums, because as most of you will know, I am a forum newb. It's been pointed out that there's lot's more awesome people that have some amazing ideas that they would like to put forward for future CGN's. However, they aren't on twitter. So I thought I would open up this thread and say hi!
Welcome to the hub of the COD community, it's true there are lots of awesome people here with amazing idea's and plenty of fun to be had if you ever decide to venture into 'Teh OT' ( that's how it must be referred to ) - look forward to seeing more posts from you
Hi Tracy - Thank you
I feel I've missed out on loads! It will be great to meet new people on here! I am trying to follow you but it only lets me do it in a stream!
'Teh OT - I am 100% Newb
For those guys that might not know what a CGN is or haven't had the chance to take part in one yet here's a brief overview
Community Games Nights (CGN's) are popular on range of different games, weather it be a chance to play with fellow forum users or the fabled developers and maybe even the odd Youtuber. It's chance to take things a little less seriously, kick back and laugh with people who share the same passion.
GCN's can take a number of different forms, from the massive lobbies which are guaranteed chaos and lulz to the more competitive things like Race To Escape. Both have their positives and negatives.
Massive lobbies are great as more people get a chance to take but on some of the smaller maps it can get a little too chaotic.
Race To Escape's are good for giving players a more 1 to 1 game with developers and Youtubers and add that competitive factor but access is a lot more restricted. (Although there's nothing to say a community team couldn't pit them selves against the Dev/YT teams)
A few of you guys may even remember Back in Black the CGN that pitted CoDHQ against Charlieintel.
(I can't remember who won out of the 2 but I know I won the FFA with a Tomahawk GWK )
So now we all know what a CGN is and have been given a few examples what's your favourite format for a CGN? Do you have any ideas that you'd think would make for a good CGN?
Something I'd like to see is a series of CGN's which pits community site teams against each other in a league format. With different players from different sites like CoDHQ, Charlieintel and I Play CoD playing a variety of different games on different platforms. Perhaps we could even get Gypsy816 to add a CGN badge to season 2 to recognise the players who represent the CoDHQ in different CGN's.
I would love to have the courage to be involved in CGN's , but I constantly fear I would be more of a hindrance than help, I know a lot of it is about having fun and having a laugh but I still wouldn't want to think it was me that let the team down. Maybe one day I''ll actually pluck the courage up to sign up
Nooooo Tracy! Why would you think that? No one is a hindrance in the team, I am bringing you to the Next CGN, As TL_Bare_B_V2 says its really all about the lulz and meeting people! Its really good fun! Oh and Btw I am always last
What platform are you on
I'm on 360 and One, couldn't bear to part with the 360, still enjoy playing the old COD games as well as other titles that aren't available for the One
