I cant beleive that nobody posted here since the Luxtoberfest have begun.....Is it just me or this year Luxtoberfest is kinda strange??? For sure theres not much players playing this year and it seems that not much people post in the forums of Luxtoberfest either....For sure I think para is doing a good job ,but I think he should have had more helps from the other mods or dustin to host some tournments.......

Well, snype's been having problems... And the only weird thing is how... crowded these weeks are becoming. We have as many as four events on the weekdays alone.

It's funny, actually, when you think about it. Events that were well-organized never became popular.... and events that became popular were disorganized.

About my near-complete absence from the game (not the forums) during luxtober..... the focus on bio disgusts me, that's all. Of course, we have to play what the people want to play (as unfortunate as that is) so I joined in, played a few games of bio. It was enough to make me retire for the month.

I thought the mods and admins did a good job. In retrospect, it seemed like an average month with zombie avatars.... but that's just me.

The forums, however, I feel are doing well, I wouldn't say that the Luxtoberfest thread is suffering. Family Feud was entertaining to say the least :)

Will luxtober be Vox inclusive this year? There was a Vox tournament last year from memory. Be worth considering a Vox map award as well. Mb has been prolific with his Vox cartography and made some of his best maps ever for that game IMO. Napoleonic Wars comes to mind especially.

That's a good idea Behemoth, although it may be a little late to include it now. Send in your best Vox map votes anyone that wants to.

It's getting close now, so everyone cast your votes!

ah votes... done em... I do say though... I hate that I missed the lux bowl(both bowling and football). Those were my two favorites. Maybe next year, things won't be as... crushed together.

And many thanks to everyone who has already voted! Remember, you can also suggest alternative award categories and their winners. No promises they will happen, but I'll consider all ideas sent my way.


:P
