Y'all probably remember me, but in-case you don't - began playing AoS @ v0.22 and played it for many years, involved in various parts of the community. Been away for quite some time and I'd still call myself somewhat aloof from BnS, but I have been busy!

I help run a Rocket League community, who have begun having several weekly streams. We're called Division6, and every Friday we host an Alternative Games Night (AGN) @ 7pm BST. Last week I convinced 10 newbies to play Soldat (props to you if you know that game), and this week I am aiming to fill a 32-slot server from one of the earlier AoS versions.

Gen map, crazy sensitivity, no auto-climb, just the pure gold fun that was the early days.
I'm hoping to attract a crowd and get a full server so we can properly get a taste of that feeling, so please tell your old buddies to come back along for a nostalgic wonderland.

The client download will be linked to at the very beginning of the Stream, will have an easy 1-click joinable batch file, and the game shall be streamed by me on the D6 twitch channel (http://twitch.division6.org) for a number of hours hopefully (the server will be kept up for the night regardless).

Hope to see you all there, and if you have any questions, shoot! Blue_Pistol

EDIT: Here's the download link in advance for all those curious!
It's a modded 0.52, with autoclimb taken out, frame rate cap upped to 60 FPS, and master server link removed.

SERVER LINK WILL BE PROVIDED ON THE NIGHT

This should be fun. AoS was a different game before autoclimb... slower paced, and tunnels were critical. Hint, hint... Green_Wink1 Blue_Wink1

Boosting this post to the front page for a few days until the event is over.

Absolutely! It didn't look quite as clean back then, but the gameplay was just so different and fresh.

Thanks for the advertising, the more we get, the better it'll be. Blue_BigSmile

Might be worth it?
Probably worth doing it weekly or fortnightly to begin with and see if the interest stays.
This is probably the only time Division6 will play it onstream, however I would stream any future ones on my own twitch in future and probably do the same level of advertising.

The stream will include an intro video to AoS, so if you do want to invite people who haven't played it before then feel free - they'll be guided all the way.

As an update, all details remaining the same however I will be arranging a second server to be on standby given the interest this is generating.

D6 also hasn't played this game before so I may try and split out newer guys/non-tryhards into the secondary server - will see how many viewers show up on the twitch and decide then and there.

Also, I'm in the process of making a wee intro video that explains the controls, the game mode etc so it'll be super friendly to any newbie that comes along.

Intro made - if you want to get your friends up to speed quick, made a short video explaining setup and basics:
