Title: Noob Recruitment Bulletin Board
Post by: Clownboss on July 09, 2016, 11:07:06 AM
Since there are a lot of casual/noob players that ask for a fair match-up but can't compete on the level of the grunt-rushing 10+ years years GoW veterans, this place is reserved exclusively for them(as is for myself).

The idea is this: You post what you want to play in which timeframe(like, do you want to do GoW or the built-in maps, or custom scenarios? 1v1 or 2v2s? Deathmatches? Co-ops?), and you leave some preferred method of contact, like your email, Skype or Steam name, so that any like-minded player can be free to contact you outside the forum and that you can arrange for matches and measure up your skills. Sound good? Leave your info here.

To demonstrate, I am going to specify what kind of multiplayer I want to play:



I'm a very casual War2 player who doesn't seek improvement or large commitments to the game, but likes to experience multiplayer matches in a variety of different maps and game modes, including custom scenarios. I am a very low-skill player and do not partake in rush strategies. My aim is to try and cover every single Tides of Darkness/Beyond the Dark Portal multiplayer scenario and map at least once, and perhaps even more maps from addons like Morecraft. If you're interested in playing and are not too tough, invite me through my email: clownboss@gmail.com
Or contact me through Skype or Steam with the name Clownboss. But please leave an intro message on Skype or inform me on the forum that you're going to add me on Steam, becuase I have a habit of blocking strangers.

I'm European time and mostly like playing in mornings or evenings, but since I'm mostly at home these days studying for exams on the side I can generally be available anytime I'm not sleeping. Weekends or weekdays make no difference to me.

PLEASE REMEMBER: YOU HAVE TO LEAVE YOUR EMAIL OR IM ACCOUNT(STEAM, SKYPE) AS A METHOD OF CONTACT.

I've seen a lot of new people lately who always host private games.  Many different names, I wonder who they are and where they've come from.

I found alot of persistent xss on big websites and redirect them to the main server.war2.ru webpage. I can test by maybe only using this vulnerability on Spanish websites lol see how many Mexicans we can get to play.

Nice thread, I think it's a good idea. It is pretty common for there to be a handful of newbs hanging out on the server and trying to get games, but not all at the same time. If we can guide them to this thread they can at least play intermittently instead of trying once then leaving forever. I'll advertise it on the home page of the site & also in the main channel of the server. You can also use this link to advertise this thread: http://en.war2.ru/newbs (http://en.war2.ru/newbs)

Make sure to include your region/time zone too since there are players from all over the world!

My match-ups with bommy have been quite fun and we seem to be on a more or less equal skill level. If anyone wants to join to expand our circle, don't be shy.

No, but I figured you didn't have time to play these days or something, like you were waining from Warcraft 2. You said so on Discord so I thought I wouldn't bother you.

If you still want to play, then sure, just don't complain about the game modes I'm setting.

lol, bitch. Fine, let's only do what you want 100% of the time! That's completely fair and will ensure everyone has fun!

I'm still game -- I play whenever I feel like it, less lately, but it varies. It's never a bother to ask!

I had an idea about simple web-based application, something like calendar:
people join with their aka and probably contact data, select time and date when they want to play and everybody can look into that calendar and understand who want to play and when.
Just need time to write this code, but i have no much time now...

Please add an alternate way of contacting you, like your email or Steam, which can endure for years and years. Just saying you can be found on Bnet is a bit flimsy.

Hey everyone!  I used to play Warcraft II way back when I was a kid, and have not touched it for years.  I just stumbled across this the other day and would love to play some casual games just for fun.  I am definitely a noob.  I do not have any specific games that I would prefer to play, again just some casual games with like-minded players who are around my skill level and don't take it too seriously.  My username is the same in Battlenet as on here: theahist59.  My e-mail is theahist59@gmail.com.  I live on the east coast of the United States.  I am most likely to be free on evenings and weekends.  Thanks!

I'm Ishmokin and was a fan of the original war2 back in the day. We played very scrubby and only on a casual level.

I create games in the server named noob Gow or scrub Gow.  Been getting some awesome replays of getting my ass handed to me by the vets! :D

I used BNET Insight tool to record the games for the first time and its been great! This will be the key to my improvement and gradually departure from scrubdom! haha!

First time I witnessed a build where he sealed 11 oclock by farms, then built a lumber mill and a watch tower at the entrance. Then built another Hall, and was just producing nothing but peons. then he teched up to get blood lust then proceeded to kill me.

Is that what's called a dual hall build? I always assumed a dual hall was a fast expand. Guess not. hehe.

Anyways, you can find m as Ishmoks or Ishmokin on Steam.  I live in South East Asia, Hong Kong Time.

Hope to get some games with you all! cheers!  ^-^

glad you're enjoying the server!

you can dl the map editor at http://en.war2.ru/downloads (http://en.war2.ru/downloads) for basic editing and there are also lots of 3rd party map editing tools here: http://artho.com/warcraft/wctools.html (http://artho.com/warcraft/wctools.html)

Warmaker is a nice app (at the 2nd link) that generates a map from random which can give you a nice starting vs starting a new map from scratch

Exactly, what I was thinking! There are several players that are willing to teach the game to newer players. But we do not really have any tutors.
I would be happy to tutor new players (did that in the past). All new players that are interested to be tutored please contact me.

I'm not a pro player but I can certainly teach you a bit more than the basics so that you will be able to understand what happens in pro games and advance by your own after.

Cheers

What you posted for your email most spam engines can parse eitherway :-P
I suggest you edit the message text and remove it.
A safer way is to leave spaces among each letter of your account name and to imply the provider instead of mentioning it.
For example:
e x a m p l e (d o t) u s e r
Using g o o g l e c o m m e r c i a l.

that while a person can easily figured it out a spam engine usually ignores...

I've been around for quite some time but life got busy and I was never a great player.  I can't even win a lower tier tourny...  I wouldn't consider myself a newb (my account is something like 1500-1000) but I do want to get back to playing (I always watch XuRnT's youtubes.   I have tried fixing my hosting issues for a LONG time now but it just isn't working... so if newer/middle range players want to GoW, I would love to play.  Or if at sometime someone can walk me through how to fix my dang ISP settings so I can host, that would be awesome.

Much love for War2.
