GWJ European game nights - Europeans assemble!

I know we have a few Europeans on here, but the GWJ curse channel can be fairly dead for most of the daylights hours here in Europe. In fact, I think this week I heard my first non-North American accent when I played with Kurnster. We had a blast, although it was fairly late at night we played.

After being prompted by Bubblefuzz in the Streamers with jobs thread, I wanted to see if there would be any interest in setting up a few gaming nights/afternoons for us on the other side of the pond to play some games. It doesn't have to be a set day, and it can more be a floating thing. Even once a month would be great to all get together and share our special European secrets those pesky North Americans can't ever know about

Since it's also the start of the Steam sale, it might be a good time to pick up a few games we can all play for cheap (for example, I don't have Rocket League on the PC, only PS4, but I'd be happy to get it if plenty others wanted to play it.)

So would there be any interest in getting this going? I know for me, personally, I needed a bit of a push to play with people on Curse/Twitch app (it's still Curse to me, dammit!) at first, but I really enjoy it now. But one thing I'd love more is to get out some of the great Europeans on our forums and play some games with, and play in a time zone that is more in line with the sleep I require for work

Also, joking aside, of course everyone from wherever they're from is more than welcome to join, this is just more of a call out to see if we can get more Europeans playing on Curse! So, I would love to hear your thoughts, Euro GWJ crew! Open to all suggestions of games.

I'm not in Europe, but I'm UTC+2

Sent you an invite to the Euro GWJ Steam group too. Maybe we can get some action going there. With a toddler I'm not a big one for scheduling, but I'm game to try.

I'm in Germany, but I have an infant.
I'd be willing to at least try to join in events. MMO's are no-go's for me and I have little experience with MOBAs, but pretty much anything else I'm game for....schedule and infant/energy permitting.

That's the idea, just so we can get some people playing together! There wouldn't be any real commitment, just a chance to get people together to play some games.

Thanks for the invite, I didn't even know it existed!

I'm happy for it to have much more loose scheduling, it definitely won't be a case of "this day in 2 months we'll play", it'd be better to just discuss if people are interested in playing some games and then go from there!

Im in the UK and would be interested, although due to work and family I cant always commit, but I can usually be found online late on weeknights.

Yeah, it's not a very active group unfortunately, but there seems to be a recent influx of Eurozoners so maybe we can hit a critical mass of fairly constant activity. It's nice to have a single place to check to see who's around.

I need to keep Curse running more regularly too.

I'm usually playing video games of an evening. I'm dibs#1306 on bnet and dibs on steam (my icon is me and patrick star).
I don't do curse or the discord.

I am in the UK and up for some gaming at some point. My pc is a bit out dated so most of my modern gaming is on the Xbox but I do have Rocket League on the PC

Yeah you posted a good idea over in streamers Clusks, just thought to have a look and here it is, cool.

Same as most, can't really commit to anything regular, plus I'm only really on PS4. However if the thread means can connect with some euro(ish) timezone gwj folk on psn and get a few games of Overwatch or RL in here and there that'd be grand.

I'm eligible as a UK based Goodjer. I work weekends, though. I don't do as much late night gaming these days, either. My free time brackets shift from week to week. If I can ever make it I'll be sure to let it be known.

Mostly PS4. Anything with a low spec requirement could see my PC come into contention. I used to play Left 4 Dead and Payday 2.

Helldivers was good fun with Goodjers. Alienation had its moments before running out of steam. The Last of Us was fantastic with enough to have two opposing sides. I do not much care for Rocket League. Maybe a few matches for a laugh. Not interested in rank, win streaks, or any of that nonsense. I can't think of anything else. Uncharted 4, maybe.

I do not yet own a Nintendo Switch. Waiting out a reasonably priced bundle. Or, peer pressure.

I will happily wipe out my whole team on Helldivers when stumping around in a big mech suit.

Mostly playing Rocket League in terms of multiplayer games. A little Heroes of the Storm. Well, and MMOs.
Not too good with scheduled gaming these days, but it could be fun to play from time to time.

Just got back into Destiny on the PS4 as I'm looking to get the sequel when it comes out. I'd be game to play that? Never done any raids (but would like to) so spend most of my time getting nailed in the Crucible. Also got Rocket League. No PC I'm afraid.

Sorry I've been a bit lax with this, I've been very busy, but it's good to see such a big response! So, judging by things, I'm guessing it'd be a lot better to just use the thread as a way for people to get some multiplayer on the go? I can try draft up a google spreadsheet or something where you can put down your tags and games you'd be interested in streaming.

For me, personally, I have a PC and PS4. I'd be very interested in playing:

PC:

- EU IV
- Hearts of Iron IV
- Overwatch
- PLAYERUKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS
- Football Manager

PS4:

- Rocket League
- FIFA
- (I'm interested in getting back into Street Fighter too, so would happily get that!)

Those are the games I have right now, but like I said, I'm happy to get more if it means more people can play together!

Present!!! I'm GMT+1 and am typically unavailable before 9pm local. Don't forget that we also have a Steam group for Euro goodjers.

I never knew! :Cry:
Someone throw me an invite.

I have Street Fighter V. I'm not very good at it and haven't played for a while. I've been meaning to give it another go.

I need to look up what PC games I own. It's been that long!

I have just upgraded my graphics card and network connection so I can finally get in on the online multiplayer action! I play a whole bunch of stuff. Mainly Heroes of the Storm right now (I'm TeenyMcWeeny#2587 on bnet).

I'm keen to join the Steam group as well, can I get an invite?

http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/7...

I play:

Rocket League
ARK Survival Evolved
Rust
L4D2
The Forest
7 Days to Die
Space Engineers
so many more...

I actually have Rust, and have been looking for an excuse to play it!

I've not played Rust yet because my connection wasn't good enough. It is now though! Shall we try to drum up some more players?

That sounds like a plan.

I won't be around next weekend, but through the week I should have some time.

I've added you on Steam. Give me a shout when you are free

Have you played much before? I've dabbled a little...

Nope, I actually got it when a friend at work convinced me to do so, but every time I asked if he wanted to play he'd just say he was busy playing something else! So it's actually annoyed me a bit that it has been sitting on the pile for so long.

OK, I should be all good to go for either tomorrow night or Saturday morning. I know they're not the best of times, but if you can't do then I can easily find a time next week! (I'm off to Nottingham Saturday afternoon and not back until Monday afternoon!)

I can do tonight. There's a midlands server we can try out

So I just recently discovered Warframe, thread here. And it's pretty dope. It's essentially Free To Play Destiny.

It's a third person action shooter/space ninja simulator where you replay PvE co-op missions for loot to unlock 'Frames' basically types of ninja exosuits, and weapons. Which may sound quite unappealing, but the combat and movement are really dynamic and satisfying.

I'm quite early, but the lore seems pretty cool, and it's a ton of fun to play. Would be fun to group up though, so hopefully I can persuade some others to try it out.

Anyone here picking up Destiny 2?

I have a GAME gift card burning a hole in my pocket so thinking about picking it up for PS4 tomorrow.

Destiny 2 is actually what got me playing Warframe. Don't have the finances for a full price multiplayer game right now. So free to play Destiny it is.

Oh man, annoyed I missed this initial post a few months back. (Kurnster here). Are you still organizing weekly games nights? Work is hitting a big big crunch date on the 14th and then I get my life back. So would be eager to get some GWJ EU going for sure.

No luck scheduling anything so far, but the more people the better the chances.

I've sent a friend request and I'll add you to the group.

Nice one! Thanks, friend request accepted!
