Okay guys, here's all the info I have so far.

The event is a competition to see who can get 1,000 kills first. More information below:

Time: 9:00 PM EST - Password will be released one hour before then so you can warm up. The map will be restarted when it is time to start.
Server: It will be hosted on Server A. The IP can be found in Members Only. If you wish to join us and you are not a Clan Member, you can find our server in the server list towards the end beginning with "}SoC{ Christian Server"
Password: event
Map: Battle Creek
Method of killing: Shotguns and grenades

Please remember while playing that all of our rules apply to this event.

The map has been modified so that the Oddball in impossible to reach. There will not be an end to the game until somebody reaches 1,000 kills.

Feel free to hop into the Halo channel on Teamspeak!

Maybe he means Orthodox Christmas -- much of the Eastern church never updated to the Gregorian calendar and so they end up celebrating Christmas on January 7 because the Julian calendar is 13 days behind (and counting).

I could of have pushed some buttons to fix it but I thought I would let you have all of the fun fixing it your self. :)

Anyhow I have yet to vote becouse I am not sure if I will be making it or not.... I will let the people who will be making it vote first. :P

I do hope to make it though. Is there a set time for this to happen?

I am thinking about 9:00 PM EST so that it can hopefully be over by midnight.

And since only two people have voted, you're more than welcome to cast your vote. I've decided to edit the map to make it easier to prevent people from accidentally getting the Oddball, so everybody vote so that I know which map to edit!

I should be able to make it! :D My new laptop can actually play games nicely and I should be somewhere with decent Internet so I shouldn't lag, either ^.^
My vote should count infinite times...

And yes. That means I finally get to play with more than 10-30 random fps and 100-300 random ping.. first time.. ever :O

I'm running the poll for one more hour. After that, I'm going to modify the map so that we don't have to worry about something getting in the way.

Poll is now closed for voting.

The event is open to any and all players that wish to join. The password will be posted one hour before the event. You are welcome to join the server and start warming up. When the event starts, the map will be reloaded upon which the race has begun!

Good luck to everybody involved! I will post results in a new topic once it's concluded! :)

P.S.
If people could take screenshots it will help since I don't know if I'll have to drop out mid-way through it.

I changed my vote. I voted for Chiron because it had more votes at the time, but I like both maps equally.

Map: Battle Creek
Gamemode: Race to 1,000 Kills
Weapons: Shotguns and grenades

Password will be posted in 1 hour for you guys to start warming up. Get your gameface on! :tounge:

After 1 hour and 15 minutes of utter chaos and several people having to leave, we decided to call it quits once Tali hit 300 kills. Since I was out of the game at that point, Tali took the most epic screenshot ever, but alas, Halo being Halo took a picture of a black screen so we have no final screenshot.

I took some a little before halfway into the slaughter, so I will post them when I can!

It was a pretty epic screenshot too. I was in the middle of a melee with a grenade in my face while holding f1 to have the score screen up and pushing print screen. Most epic moment of the whole game, for sure.

I think at one point we had 8+ people on the server. Since somebody requested it last minute there wasn't much advance notice. However, I'm thinking about doing another event soon... >:)

Plan well ahead this time and have plenty of advertisement. Spontaneous games are fun but tend to leave people out. We need a full-on clan halo event this next time. Just wish the server or game could support more than 16…

That means if, as I heard before, we wish to have another event at the beginning of next month, it should start getting some advertisement as to what it will be (or voting / brainstorming).

^ Yep so here is what will be going down.... Map, not yet know. Teams, everyone vs you. :P

Anyway... I am not sure just how many people still play halo but even if we have only 5 people I am sure we will still have a blast. :)

^ In that case, it has to be done on midnight, Saturday (I have no lag). BG, pistols/snipers, no grenades / vehicles ;)

Midnight is baaaaaaaad. Course any time Saturday is bad if I wish to talk to you guys (unless it was my cable all this time, which has been replace, we'll see). BG (fine), pistols/snipes (eh....ok), (yes) grenades (have to be able to kill the Mikes somehow....), (no) vehicles. RvB or Slayer is fine. And just for the sake of throwing everyone off, active camo? I miss servers that did that....

It would never be midnight (it might last to midnight, if people are still on and feel like playing). Maps would probably be voted on, a pistols/snipers match probably wouldn't happen, since the events aren't usually just normal games, grenades are probably going to be there, vehicles may be there depending on the event, game type may be a normal one or have to be fiddled with to get it to what we need (like making the oddball spawn off the map and setting an infinite time for the race to 1000 kills). Active camo is more frustrating to most people after the first few minutes than anything.

I was making my response to Mike (Unity) saying all vs. me :P I thought I heard Mike (Lazer) say something about zombies if he could figure out the coding, but I'm not sure on that :O
