Every month on the second (usually; sometimes third) Saturday we're getting together to play some D1 or D2 co-op, and shine a light on some of the game's lesser-known missions. The mission to be played will be announced in advance, but suggestions or requests are welcome - especially if the levels were built by someone attending! This way this recurring event can help encourage the development of new co-op/single-player campaigns, and ensure that they get played.
The event will run as long as players need to finish the missions (or as much of the mission as we can reasonably play), but the target time is somewhere around 3 hours. The start time is as follows:
- Pacific: 6 pm
- Mountain: 7 pm
- Central: 8 pm
- Eastern: 9 pm
- UTC: 2 am (Sunday)
- UK: 2 am (Sunday)
- Mainland Europe (CET): 3 am (Sunday)
- New Zealand: 3 pm (Sunday)
The next Co-op Saturday is on January 11, 2020 and the mission to be played is:
Ulterior Ultima Thule (D2, Parabolicus, 23 + 3 levels): http://enspiar.com/dmdb/viewMission.php?id=1765
Will the games be scored?
Do I need to be a Ranger to participate?
Preferably, yes, or a scorable Associate - which means you need to apply for membership and find a sponsor. This can be done in as little as one game, so if you show up early we should be able to get you set up.
If there are enough non-members who want to join in, we can run separate non-scored games if necessary; these games wouldn't require applying for Rangers membership.
What difficulty level are the games being played on?
Typically Ace, but we may adjust it up or down depending on the mission and the tastes of players participating.
I've made a mission I'd like you to play; how do I submit it for consideration?
The easiest way is probably through the Rangers' Facebook page. If you don't have access or don't use Facebook, you can also e-mail the event organizer (Sirius) with your request.
