    Greetings Triatans!

    As our community continues to grow, I feel like we need more ways to interact as a community since besides Maple 1, we don't actually have a game to play right now. One of the ideas I came up with was the "Tria.tv Community Game Night". The idea is that once a week (probably a Friday or Saturday evening, EST) we would have a server open in a different game every week for our members to play on with each other. We would of course take community feedback to decide what games to do and we would have some sort of a rotation. If people didn't really like a game it would be removed and if the community wanted to try other games, we could include them.

    Even if you are unable to play, we could maybe get someone to stream the Community Game Night, which would allow those who can't do so to hang out in chat and still be apart of the fun! Also, with the addition of the TeamSpeak server, we'll have a way to communicate with each other as we play games!

    My question to you, Triatans are the following:

    1.) Would you be interested in this?

    2.) If so, what sort of games would you like to see in the rotation?

    This post is mostly to gauge interest in the idea. If people like it, we can make it a reality!

    I probably wouldn't be able to participate because of timezones + i can't play one game for longer periods of time. Good luck anyhow.

    I think sticking to accessible games to all would be a good idea. (Something like League has a huge gap if everyone's not level 30 and it's not fun if skill level varies so much that it's just a few guys slaughtering the other guys.)
    I dunno if something like this is free but Cards Against Humanity could be a fun and easy idea. And like @Jampysos said, Team Fortress 2. I'd have to check my Steam for more ideas, but that's the two I think are good starts.

    1. I would be interested, but;
    Same applies to me. If you could make it a fittable time-frame frame it would be great.

    2. CS:GO, DotA 2, TF2, basicly any steam game there is.

    Yeah, time zones are probably the biggest issue. A possible alternative is instead of having it on one "night", we have the server up all weekend long and people can just join in and play whenever they feel like it. I don't want to force anyone who isn't in a certain time zone to stay up really late, or get up really early just to participate in a community event.

    For consoles, we'd have to find out who owns what consoles and games. There's no real point in having a Mario Kart CGN when only 2 people own the game. That being said, I would absolutely LOVE to have Mario Kart and Smash in the rotation!

    PC would probably be easier to host. But I have no interest outside of MS2 and ToS.

    If we do end up having someone stream it you could still watch! And who knows, if that is the case, maybe you'll see a game and be like "oh wow, that does look pretty fun!" and want to try it out as well!

    I am of course for this. I would prefer to host games that have linux servers but can host a windows server if need be.

    Cards against Humanity sounds like a good time.

    I'll also cast votes for Terraria and Curve Fever

    1: I would be interested
    2: MOBA type games seem like a good idea. Although I assume its not restricted to just free games
    Paid games that would be good for something like this that come to mind would be Minecraft, Rust, TF2, GTA5, Reign of Kings, ARMA 3, Garry's Mod and maybe I'll post more as they come to mind.
