DIESELROBIN: Make Diesel Great Again! (Started)

Spoiler: show
Image

The idea of DieselRobin is to form teams of three and then play chars in turns, rotating to the next player when certain missions are completed. Each team gets 3 chars to play in parallel which are randomly assigned from a pool of nominated chars (every player nominates one).

I'll be running this in the channel ##dieselrobin on chat.freenode.net with a bot, Kramell, which will keep track of your scores and make progress announcements when you complete missions. To sign up, get yourself a team of three and pick a team name, then go to ##dieselrobin and enter:

$signup <team name>

and it will sign you up to that team using your IRC nick.

If you can't find a team and/or want to be randomly grouped with some other players then tell me here or in ##dieselrobin. I'll do the grouping initially on the 5th, and after that as I get requests. After you've been grouped you can pick a team name together and sign up in ##dieselrobin as above.

Signups close on the 12th, and DieselRobin starts at 0 AM the 13th of August UTC and ends at the same time on the 28th of August.

Important links: FULL RULES WORKFLOW (how to sign up and nominate a char and other stuff)

For getting on freenode IRC you can use the web client or another client of your choice.

Feel free to leave a comment if you are intending to participate, so I can know how many people there'll be :) (you still need to sign up on IRC after getting a team though).

Cool, I've just added you to my teamless list for now (xentronium) :) Let me know if you find your own team.

Re: DIESELROBIN: Make Diesel Great Again! (Signups Open)

Currently in teamless I have:
squidcat, xentronium, ldf, walrusking, and me

I created a team "features", maybe squidcat and walrusking want to join me? do "$signup features" in the channel ##dieselrobin.
EDIT: sorry, I just got asked by amalloy if I could join him and wheals, I think I'll go with that. However there was another guy shmup who was interested, I'll see if he wants to group up with you:
shmup, squidcat, walrusking

If ldf or xen wants to think of a team name and create one then you can try find a third to join you.

There are a few other people who were going to make their own teams, but there might be leftover people to fill the gaps.

Would be good if people could start doing $signup <teamname> in ##dieselrobin though, you dont need the whole team completely sorted to start, just a teamname :)

Ok, I'll make a team name "otabotab", so we need one more person. Any takes?

Re: DIESELROBIN: Make Diesel Great Again! (Signups Open)

I asked Shmup if he was playing when I saw him in IRC, and he said he wasn't, so it doesn't look like that team's happening. I'll join yours if you need a 3rd.

EDIT: looks like we found a 3rd ourselves, sorry.

Re: DIESELROBIN: Make Diesel Great Again! (Signups Open)

I realised I got the date wrong, it'll start 0 am on the 13th of august (UTC), not the 12th.

Also since WalrusKing hasn't shown up, squidcat and ultimatecarl need a third player, if anyone is interested sign up now!

Re: DIESELROBIN: Make Diesel Great Again! (Signups Open)

Hey, sorry I went dark on you guys. Had some field work spring up out of nowhere and forgot to post on here. It's possible that I'll have more fieldwork this weekend and I'd feel bad about slowing the tournament down for any teammates, so I think I should sit this one out. Maybe next time.

Also, if it's the kind of thing you're into, you can watch the dieselrobin experience from a silver-medal point of view on Youtube.
