    I would love to make it, but my girlfriend would castrate me if I played a game for 10 hours while she was present.

    Geniusflash: New Year's supersecret present TREASURE HUNT.

    Clue 1: "Look underneath the fridge."
    Clue 2: "Ask a disgruntled Walmart employee about finding the Jade Dragon"
    Clue 3: "Win 3 games of winter paintball vs. a team of marines"

    etc.

    I'm competing in Newegg's Wanfest from Dec 28th to Jan 15th. If I don't have a match on that day (I'll know in the next couple of days), I'd like to play either the barb or necro.

    Re: Call To Arms - Round #5: January 2nd, 2010, ~11:59am-10pm EST

    So at the moment we have 11 people who should be able to make it.

    Code:
        Build                   Account Name        Forum Name
        -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1.  SF/Enchant Sorceress    Tai-                Tai.
    2.  BO/Frenzy or Necro      hobbsc              hobbsc
    3.  Multishot/LF Zon        taxcut              taxcut
    4.  20 DS Assassin          Socialism           Socialism 
    5.  Summoner/Blizzard Sorc  JayHawkFan          JayHawkFan
    6.  Orb/TK Sorceress        Shin                AgentMarth
    7.  Summoner/Blizzard Sorc  TheDarkSide         TheDarkSide
    8.  Trap/DS Assassin        NomNomNom           KillaMike
    9.  SF/Chant or Necro       UrbanNomad          UrbanNomad
    10. Undecided               Hp_Sauce            Hp_Sauce
    11. BO/Frenzy               chaggog             chaggog

    At this point build assignments are up in the air. It looks likely that we'll have two teams. Hopefully we'll have a few more signups so we can have two full teams rather than teams of 6, it will make character assignment much easier.

    Also, clearly I didn't have access to people's account names on the PTR so if you could reply with your B.Net account and more specific build information that would be great.

    As always we will be doing final confirmation the day before the CTA to ensure spots. We will have a tentative division into two teams before that, but if we have less than 11 people confirm on the 1st we may be forced to audible to a single team, as there really is no point in doing a team with less than 5 people. In the event of this happening preference will be given to players we have dealt with before - who have proved their reliability for the entire run. As such it is in all of our best interest to make the final confirmation so nobody gets left out.

    Cheers

    My first two choices would be either the SF/Chant Sorc or Summon Necro.

    So I've updated the above post with people's account names and preferences. Glad to see that we have most of the spots covered. We are still looking for more people and at some point it would be great to pick up a paladin, though if worse comes to worst I will gladly audible to that build as I have played it in two of our previous CTA runs and it is a blast. I even managed to off DClone with him after one run :)

    Cheers

    Re: Call To Arms - Round #5: January 2nd, 2010, ~11:59am-10pm EST

    Im actually known as Ofchells3 on the PTR and Id prefer the Blizzard Sorc over the Summoner actually. But seeing as we might have 2 other sorc (enchant) (orb) Im open to anything really. Also can someone place a link to the chat client we are gong to use ? I dont have it installed anymore and need to get set up beforehand.

    Blizzard on January 1st: "We would like to announce that as a new years gift to all our fellow D2'ers that we will be resetting the ladder next Friday"

    Yeah, watch it happen. Haha

    I so need a wireless network card asap, I can't count on tethering for this. Any suggested brands other then linksys :p

    Have a good runs guys, I'm afraid the price of having Xmas weekend off was having to work the weekend of New Years, so despite much protest I am unable to join in this venture. (This would have been my third cta!)

    Much <3 to my peeps.
    :girly:


    @marth
    There's no way you'd want to put a ~10 ish hour gaming session on your tethering plan, I bet they cap you at 5gb. with overage accrued after the 5. Some carriers its even less.

    Technically I don't have an actual tethering plan, I instead have an "unlimited" data plan that is capped at 5 GB (go figure) that I use for it whether they like it or not. Its not me worried about going over, but its not a solid connect 100% of the time, and I can't be dropping left and right, especially being the porter. I just hope my wireless sets up without any problems.

    And awwww, you're gonna miss it! Suck!

    I think you're going to be sick on January 2nd. Violent diarrhea or Swine Flu are what I'd recommend. :thumbup:

    Well Son of a Bleeeeep !!! Im afraid Im gonna have to remove myself from the list now as well. My day has already been planned for me once again.

    1) my wife has to work so I'll have to watch both kids - I knew this but was prepared to fight through it

    2)I have to take our dog to the vet to have her stitches removed between 8and noon

    3)I have to take my daughter to her basketball game

    4)I have to take my son over to his friends house after my daughters game

    Saying all this, I probably wont be home till late afternoon (2 - 3pm) at the earliest and then my wife wont get home till 4pm so I'll probably have to feed the hellspawn and be generaly tied up until later in the evening. Hope everyone else can attend and I look forward to reading the exploits ...
