Scheduled online game nights

Are there still any regular game sessions going on, like Bottle Rockets? Even outside GWJ, I'm interested in finding a community I can join in with.

I keep finding communities on Discord and such that are proud of running 24/7, and encourage members to just put up a post when they want to play with people. That's...not me. That feels like going to a party, kicking the door open, and yelling "BeriAlpha's here, who wants to do shots?"

I'm much more into the idea of having something already on the schedule, a regular online gaming night, something where I can drift in without causing a lot of noise and get to know a regular group of people through play.

My friends and I used to play on Mondays, but people kept missing sessions and things got increasingly fractured as we became interested in different games. We had maybe a half-dozen sessions with four people on voice in Monster Hunter, talking about our days and joking around. Then another dozen sessions where just one other person got online, and nowadays, it's mostly just me, hunting with voiceless random players.

Anything like that going on? I should mention that I'm primarily a PS4 player.

I'm down with Monster Hunter on some weeknights, mostly Mondays and Fridays. My time is GMT +8Hours. I'm in the endgame on Iceborne, but I'm happy to just team up and hunt whatever. I must preface this by saying that I'm a working professional (as we all are), but also that I'm not fantastically talented as a gamer, so you may find my hunting efficacy... average. But if you're okay with that, I'm down for hunting.

I'd also be down for some monster hunting, though I'm just getting started on Icebourne. unfortunately I'm 13 hours behind you! (EST/Boston)

This should work great! I am sometimes free on Tuesday mornings, so between 9 am and 12 pm for me is 8 pm to 11 pm Monday for you. That's perfect.

Chiming in that I play most nights as well, UTC-7 (MST) around 9-12PM.

I'm on PC, so no Iceborne, and only started a few weeks ago, so I'm not at endgame yet. I often dawdle, doing limited bounties and clearing out Optional quests before pushing story progression.

I try to pop into the Discord channel when I'm playing, but if you're up for appointment gaming, I can reserve the time.

Monday Night Monster Hunting Sounds like a thing!

I don't have Icebourne, but I'd be up for a Monster Hunter PS4 night (no Mondays for me though). Or, I have other games on my laptop... Borderlands 3, perhaps?

If you're down for tonight, Larry, PM me on PSN a bit before you're ready to go, whether or not I'm on. My phone should pick it up. I should be bopping around, sculpting or building model figures or something.

Sorry guys. I had to go work tonight, but I usually don't, so I'll probably be on at least for an hour more often than not. Monster Hunter Mondays is a go!

Ah cool. I kind of just assumed that I was the only one still playing MH regularly since the GWJ room is always empty when I join I have been playing on and off with my brother during his limited playtimes, otherwise, I'm happily soloing away. The endgame for Iceborne is so drastically improved over the base game that I foresee myself playing for quite a while yet.

I'm pretty firmly in endgame territory (MR110ish, I believe), but I'm happy to hunt whatever is needed. Plus, I often play hunting horn, so you will be forced to love me. PS4, btw.

I should be able to swing a few group hunts most Monday nights. I'm also EST, so this works great for me. Count me in. Should coordinate here or move it to the MH thread going forward?

Man, I didn't even come back and look at this thread for a few days, and I accidentally started Monster Hunter Mondays.

I'm PST, which works. Sounds like we're looking at:

Monday 5pm-8pm PST
Monday 8pm-11pm EST
Tuesday 9am-12pm UTC +8

I figure we'll get started as a regular thing next Monday, November 11. I'm mostly just working on increasing my Master Rank, so I'm down for anything MR.

So, as far as where to coordinate, how about I just start a new thread for it? I figure that trying to get a regular thing going in the hundreds-pages-long main MHW thread is just gonna end up buried for anyone new who might be looking for some people to hunt with.

Eh, I guess it would get buried as its own thread, too. I think I'll just post something Sunday, and let everyone know that we have big plans!

I made a post in the main MHW thread! https://www.gamerswithjobs.com/node/...
