PostSubject: How will i know when to join a game?   Tue Jan 03, 2012 4:54 am

Yesterday i got up at 3 AM in the morning just to play this map, and i didnt know when to join or if there were any games at all, someone said i was late but there were still games going on, but i didnt know how to join them or when they start, so i didnt get the chance to play the map.

Can someone tell me how will i know when a game starts and how to join it?

How do i make the sound pack work with the map? Isnt that what its supposed to do?


Is there anyone from europe or US east(us west has too much time difference, one from us west can help me if hes free and if he wants to) that will mentor me(teach me the basics, as well as the hero i want to learn, just the things that can be tought) so that i can get better before i join my first fight against all other players?

I have a mic and everything to talking will be easier :3

impressive you got up at 3AM just to play the map.

i am from europe and even though i haven't played this map in a while i used to have a couple of games from an hour of 8PM. My time zone is GMT+1.

the way i noticed a game was about to start was a whole lot of spam like "gn ufw".
but usually there was a lot of squabbling of people asking others to actually host something even before a match would be up XD

as for your other question, i kind of suck since i'm to slow but i do know a bit of what each hero does since i translated the map a couple of times.
which VOIP program do you use? just having a mic does not help XD

you need to click on "custom game" icon (looks like a scroll) and then type the gamename there

I just want to join in the games when they are hosted.

But when they are i have no idea how to know the moment they are hosted.

usually there is some squabbling before/after a game.

in the chat itself you could look for a command like "!priv ufw" or "!host ufw"
the ! could be something else but it usually looks something like that. The name behind the host-command is normally the game name.

also, bots tend to reply if a game is correctly made like "a private game is started named blabla" or something in that fashion.
if a player hosts... well, then you just have to hope you don't miss it XD

to see the gamename you also have to be present in clan ufw channel, so you can see when someone hosts

The fact that i have to get up at 1:30 AM in the morning, tired, is frustrating enough.

But in the last 2 days i wasnt able to join games at all, mainly because i have to play the guessing game for when the ongoing game will end so that i can join, not only that, but the lobby each game almost get instafilled so unless i sit in the lobby for half an hour or so when i get up im guaranteed to lose the map host timing and then its back to waiting for another hour tired.

What should i do? Neutral

Unfortunately, due to the nature of BNET and from the lack of population, it's very rare that we get more than 2 games going at the same time. Most players have to go through what you did as well.

My recommendation would be to keep a bot in channel so that you can look at the chat as conveniently as possible. Also ask for score to whoever is in the game. You can either ask me or TheWorstNewbie as we are in fate game quite often.

You can also ask someone to perform a !getgame command. Typical game of fate lasts anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour, so based on how long the game has been going, you can estimate on when the game will end.

That would be helpful, but how do i get it and how does it work? I wont have to sit in the lobby(without doing anything) until the game is finished right? I can still watch anime episodes/play other games and still look at the chat via that bot right?

Also, how do i get the sound pack to work with the map?

We unfortunately don't give any support on bot usage but you can visit stealthbot's forum, look at their guide and set it up

http://www.stealthbot.net/forum/

For soundpack, assuming that you have installed your Warcraft 3 in the proper manner, all you have to do is just run the setup and it should automatically do everything for you.

If this doesn't work, you have to manually set the registry path yourself. If you do not know how to do this, just reinstall Warcraft 3

I only installed Warcraft 3 in a different path, nothing more.

Thanks.
