  1. Today
  2. This is our 12 year old Pug Bingo. He is getting up in age and normally just wants to be on a lap soaking up all the attention he can get.
  3. I am usually more willing to try new games that are F2P as I am somewhat frugal and enjoy a good return on investment when I decide to buy / support a F2P model. As to how to pick - that's the tough one. Maybe a monthly poll on a genre (RPG , FPS , etc)? Possibly a secondary poll after that to gauge interest to see if it's worth committing a month's time supporting said game?
  4. Yesterday
  5. This is something I'm certainly interested in. I think that for most people a lot of games we play don't have extended staying power like League of Legends. Thinking from an admin perspective I'm wondering about; How do we pick our "featured" game? How many people plan to play? What is driving current interest (F2P, content update, new game, etc.)? Will this game have extended staying power beyond our FotM? How do we transition to our next featured game without alienating the people still playing the last FotM? I'll think up some answers to these myself, but I'm interested in y'alls feedback.
  6. Welcome! We do have a lot of military and prior service members; glad you found us. I'm also prior-service and work for the Government. My LOL IGN is Aeryx; I hope to get a few games in with you.
  7. Sounds great. I will look for you in discord after I get it set up.
  8. Thanks for the welcome everyone. I will have to check and see if I still have discord. If not it’s a quick download and I can get setup on there. I haven’t used it “fully” since playing on some retro-wow servers. i would say add PhacoEmulsifier as the main. It won’t take that long too build up a solid champion base. During the week I tend to play on that account more since I can progress faster.
  9. Haha, no it's just that if we had some official posts and such about it, it might actually bring more people to the game and our discord, even from outside the community. Kind of how I'm looking at the next Path of Exile release in June.
  10. If you need someone in bronze to rank with, I'd be willing to play with ya, I usually play late in the evening so just hit me up in discord.
  11. Hey Optifreak. Glad you posted an intro, and I hope you enjoy your time here. One of our Candidate Coordinators will be around to get you started on that Full Membership process. I am not sure which account to add you on, which account will you be using to play more with MadCast folks? Edit: Looks like one 'em already got to ya.
  12. Thank you very much for your service. My mother is also a veteran that now works for the VA, and I know that it can be a challenging place to work for depending on your position. You are now a candidate for Full Membership. When in Discord, please wear the [C] tag, as in [C] Optifreak. Additionally, you now have access to #candidates-chat. Please find a Candidate Coordinator (myself or @MadCast: Mike) for a full introduction and initial question and answer session. In one month the Senior Full Members will vote on your membership. Should you pass, you will become a Full Member. You will then be required to wear the MadCast name tag, in your case, MadCast: Optifreak. Should you fail, you may reapply and the candidacy period will begin again. A few tips for a successful candidacy: Familiarize yourself with the MadCast Code of Conduct everyone is expected to abide by. You can also check out New to MadCast section for more information! Be regularly active on the forums! Try to check it at least a few times per week and participate in topics that interest you. Share anything you find interesting, because odds are someone else will too! Forum activity is an important component of successful candidacies. Join our Discord Server! Even if you don’t or can’t use voice chat, you’re welcome to listen in. Playing games with members on our server is a good way for them to get to know you on a personal level. Attend events hosted by MadCast that have many people in one place that you can meet and leave a good impression on. Use the same username on the forums and Discord, as well as in-game, when possible. If you aren’t able to do this, make sure that the members you play with know who you are. They can’t leave comments on your thread if they don’t know which one is yours! Join the MadCast Public Group to make it easy for us to contact you, and for updates on Steam. If you have any issues you can contact one of our current admins. Feel free to post general questions regarding the candidacy process and community in the Discord #candidate-chat channel. Full Members will be able to satisfy most of your curiosities about the basics of being a part of MadCast. If you have questions regarding your candidacy or the process to become a Full Member, please attempt to contact current Full Members via #candidate-chat in Discord first. If your concern has to do with conduct or issues with another player, feel free to reach out to an admin. Last but not least, the requirement for you to even be eligible to be voted on can be found here.
  13. I'd love to have some fun trying some strat roulette, if anyone would like to try with me let me know and add me on Origin (Sn0lotus). Also would love to hear any ideas! ❤️
  14. Good morning MadCast’s! I came across your post on the league of Legends recruitment thread. I would like to apply for full membership. My name is John and I have two accounts. The first one, PhacoEmulsifier, is currently silver and climbing as a one trick Sona. I’ve held this account since season three but in reality I only played for a few months back then and just reactivated the account a few months ago. So even though it’s old it’s pretty empty of champions having like 30 or so. The second account, Optifreak72 is Bronze 3. This is the one I started prior to the season 9 start. I messed up on it and tried to gain ranks in all rolls while not really being great at some rolls. So I was stuck at bronze 4 with probably iron mmr. 12 lp win 20 lp loss bad. I’ve since fixed that and am starting to gain more lp than I lose. This account probably has 60 or so champions. I still Sona on it a good deal when I want to gain rank but really want to use it more for other rolls and supports. Like thresh Morgana and Alistar. with the secondary roll being as a jungle. My goal in joining MadCast’s would be to Find others that I can duo with and hopefully reduce the chances of trolls killing games. Find like minded people to chat with, and also learn the game and expand my champion core more through things like the training night etc. Really I’d like to find a team to play with as well but with my current schedule I know that’s not a really option other than we need a filler for a bit. i am a Veteran of the US Army. One of the things that attracted me too MadCast’s is the pro military posting on the lol boards. I currently work with the VA as a Biomedical Engineer. Basically I work with the medical equipment, planning, research, purchase, recommendation, maintenance as well as other facility issues. I currently live in Michigan with my fiancé who has two college age children that are in and out of the house all the time.
  15. I'm definitely interested in attending, just let me know as the date gets closer so I can verify if I'm going to be there or not.
  16. Last week
  17. I will be doing more events for this in the future, since it seems to be gaining popularity in the community and I truly enjoy playing it. The base DST game has some fundamental differences from the original solo player game, so some people like to play it even when alone. The bosses and other monsters tend to have more HP and the world in general can be more challenging since it is intended for teamwork and not just one person. You can play with anywhere from 1-6 people on a private server before you have to pay for more slots.
  18. I haven't played since "Together" was a thing. Always assumed it was 2 person "Together". Is it 6 people "Together"?
  19. Wish I could make it, but I'm busy that day It's a great game, though.
  20. I think it'd be good to have a dedicated FotM game though because not everyone comes to the 'Other Games' chat to know what game is the FotM. For instance if we had official in-house backing on Tropico 6 and have it be the designated game of the month perhaps more people will be interested in joining. (Probably not because that's a game for rich people)
  21. In a large way, this is kind of how the "other games" area works. there is a new flavor every month where everyone tries to convince eachother to play a certain game over another. The past few weeks has been Tropico 6 and maybe a little Escape from Tarkov.
  22. Don't Starve Together is an extremely fun and unforgiving survival game where you are able to work together with (or against) your friends to combat the harsh conditions. The base game is easy enough to understand, but there are many nuances that take time or another experienced player to help you learn. The goal of this event is mainly to help teach anyone newer to the game that wants to know how to do more than just "make a fire, cook a carrot, and eat it". Even if you haven't ever played before, it is a very fun game if you're willing to put the work in. I will be happy to answer as many questions as I can, although I wouldn't call myself an expert yet. I will be hosting a private server on Sunday, May 5th, starting at 2p EDT. There is a limit of 6 people, so please sign up here in advance. I can't guarantee you a spot otherwise, and it will be FCFS the day-of if there are any spots left. It currently costs $14.99 USD on Steam, but there are cheaper codes avilable from third party sellers. If you're curious about the game but don't own it yet, I can stream the gameplay upon request. Let's see how long we can survive together!
  23. @MadCast: Shattered I had to, I couldn't stay silent forever.
  24. he already fucked it up @MadCast: QuantaMentat
