I bring a request for one more Vent sub channel. We would like a "Looking for Game" or "Lobby" channel under League of Legends, if someone would be so kind.

Done.

Thank you my insectoid comrade!

My brother and I are thinking of league of legends tonight. I fired up the GWJ ventrillo & saw 3-4 LoL rooms on there. Are they basically just open rooms? Or are they set for specific teams/groups? I guess the question can be for any of the game rooms.

Don't want to step on anyone's toes.

The lobby (LFG) room is specifically for finding teams. The rest are whatever you want. If you and a friend are playing, grab a room.

Surely everyone knows this, but Burberry is one of the select companies that may display the royal family's seal of approval as a sign that their products have long found favor with the monarchs of Britain.

I hope the next spammer is named diningyu. Then they'd be weiningyu and diningyu. I might put up with a little spam for that kind of exchange.

Can you add a DDO channel with 2 group sub channels on the vent server for our weekly DDO static group.

Thank you!

Weekly DDO group is a great idea, one that I hope to explore once my son is sleeping through the night.

I never tried DDO, I'd be interested in at least checking it out.

Channels are created on the Vent server now.

Thank you very much.

While we are adding channels we were thinking League of Legends needs a Commentating channel for when people are doing live commentary of matches.

Does it really need four rooms, the root, and a commentary channel? If they get used I'll make it, it's just the Vent server list is getting big and awkward again.

Seems like a lot of requests don't recognize the root channel for any game as a separate channel, but it is. Root + one sub = 2 channels.

I'll bet there are a lot of games with more channels than they need right now. I'll bet WoW is one of them, based on comments I've read lately. We might want to trim some and then give some back if we prune too much.

Yeah we used to use the root LoL room a lot of the time. It almost seems like that could have been the LFT channel, and the team channels stayed there. But sometimes people are too lazy to click out of the root channel and would just play there.

Nix:

Alien Swarm
BF3: do they really need that many channels?
Bloodline Champions
Brink: It's going ftp, but no one plays it now.
BLOPS
Elemental (?)
FEAR 3
Magicka can be trimmed
Portal 2 can be trimmed
Sins
Spiral Knights: Anyone play?

Sadly, the LFT channel has the same problem: people playing in it. If people would start using the root, we probably don't need another channel, but changing one to "Commentary" might be nice so people don't jump in to see what's up while someone is recording a match.

This was more what I was getting at.

I'll just rename one of the existing channels then if that's okay. If they don't all get filled then that's the best solution.

Standalone sequel/expansion is in beta. I think that channel will be needed soon. There's already been talk of reviving Saturday Sins in the Rebellion thread.

But otherwise I agree with your list. Brink, Spiral Knights, lots of stuff had a little window of lots of people playing, but don't seem to be anymore.

There's probably more that can be trimmed. Might be nice to make a set of generic channels for "A Game of the Moment" so we don't have to make new channels for whatever comes out. If interest last long enough we might give the game its on channel.

Like how some of us have been using the "Alien Swarm" channel for "Shoot Many Robots". The game probably won't get enough of a following to deserve its own channel, but its in game chat tends to be poor enough that we need to use vent.

BFBC2 is still being played? When? I'd get in on that.

And you're right about WoW; I had forgotten that logical answer.

As always, if your game doesn't have a channel and doesn't have one available, feel free to use any empty room - perhaps trying to pick one that is unlikely to be needed anytime soon.

Sorry, I meant BF3. It no longer has 12 sub channels

It's so easy to make new channels I went ahead and made those cullings. BF:BC2 BF3 is down to four sub-channels. Once again I didn't bother with WoW because it's at the bottom of the list anyway.
