Topic Subject: If anyone wants to watch, play me...
posted 04-16-99 02:47 PM ET (US)   
I will be accepting challanges every week day at 5 pm eastern in the world wide room, I will remain in world wide untell 5:30 if none show up.

The games will be unrated, and I would hope that some of you who are interested in become better players will show up and play against me. I am also interested in keeping up and improving my skills and would enjoy a challanging game.

I will also play 2v1 if need be.

I will be using the name __bane, do not attempt to zm me as I will likely have privacy on, just look for me in worldwide.

Watchers will be first come first serve, bad pings will be an exception, they wont watch

The person who wants to play against me will host the room and I will join it, they can pick the settings, if you only want to watch, dont host a room, I dont want to join a room that has 5 watchers and no opponents.

My skill level is pretty high in rm, and decent in dm

I can play any map setting(other then cheats), but if you want to claim to have beaten me, without me pointing out an exception, you had best play me on some kind of normal default game. Else ill say "sure sure, you beat me, on tiny rm islands and I had no resources, woopie"

I wlil be here today(friday) and then next monday etc if people actualy show up.

Thanks for the offer, I'd love to 'test my mettle' against you. See you at 5:00 EST

That seems like a great offer and I will make every attempt to take you up on it. 5:00 Eastern is a perfect time for me. My classes end at around 4:30 on most weekdays, so I will try and be there as much as possible. Of course, I would only be watching seeing as it would almost be blasphemous (spell?) for me to try and beat you. Can't wait to watch a game or two in the near future, not sure if I'll be able to make it today though 'cuz I have a flat tire and need to change it ASAP 'cuz it's the weekend, and I need my set of wheels!

Dang Scarab! You've got industrial-sized brass... uhh... well... you know what I mean.

I wouldn't mind getting whipped in a 2v1, but 5 est is too early for me.

Hey S_Hemlock, how will you ever know if you dont try.

I am human, I do make mistakes, and I do lose, I have limits to how many things I can multitask at once, and the best way to get better is to play people who will push you to the limit and still beat you. You wont get better playing people you can already beat as fast as you will playing people you have trouble beating.

I'd love too. And if no one wants to be the opponent I'm willing to do the volunteering for a couple of games.

One problem though: 5.00 EST is that GMT - 5 hours? I'm not certain.

Yes, its gmt - 5 hours(easy for anyone to check reletive times, just goto the clock and click on it and look at time zones)

If thats to complicated, its 1 hour 20 minutes from now(5 pm eastern) at the time of this post

You are correct Breydel. It would be
10:00 PM GMT.


brass indeed. Would you care to watch me for a second time? Onward to the Zone!!!

once I get ror installed on my new computer (I have to get my AoE CD from my other house, grrr) I would love to play you 1v1 staffa. Considering it has been weeks since Ive played, and since I have mediocre 1v1 experience, all I can promise is that I wont die without a fight. However, one of the keys to winning is to go into the game not thinking you can win, but knowing you can win

That would be fun to watch, Sting vs Staffa one on one. I'll definately be there!

I would play some other day, but we should do

Me Shang
You Slow civ

That way i would do my best and not be scared or anything of that kind..

Going into the game thinking you are gonna lose is not good because then i tend to give up on every little thing.

Wow, that would be great! I hope people can hook you there for at least one hour to give me time to be there!

Would you dare to maybe confront a team of the mighty APC clan? ;-)

Nice offer, dude. You've gotten bigger uppon my eyes. ;-)

Best luck in UAT.

Just a suggestion since too many people showed up and so not all of us who wanted to watch could watch... Could someone post a game summary here?
posted 04-16-99 05:54 PM ET (US)     13 / 16  
I usually have bad ping on zone, so I will not be able to play you staffa?
posted 04-16-99 07:38 PM ET (US)     14 / 16  
I agree, a write up would be nice. Since there are so many spectators, the different viewpoints will add a nice touch.

Oh, and Staffa? I wholeheartedly agree that you need to play against better players to get better. It's just that my fellow APCers routinely open a can on me. I suspect I would be rather boring competition for you. (That being said, I would welcome the opportunity if it ever presents itself.)

The smell of testosterone in here is damn-near overpowering!

In April 99 my game still sucked so bad that watching Staffa was almost useless (except for learning the faster starts) Sure wish the AoE/RoR games were recorded
