The Official Ironman Party Thread!

Post by Warrior » Sat 02.05.2009, 16:18

Alright. This is the place to post about any parties on the Ironman MAngband server.

Lets see how it works out. Write here about:

* any parties you're in,
* what class and level you are
* what depth you are at
* who is in it,
* what classes they are,
* what classes you could use in the party
* and what strategy/level the party is at.

Also write here about what days and times you are available to party (please use time relative to GMT (as in -6 hours GMT, or +6 hours GMT, etc.

    (found on April 21'st 2011 - COMPLETELY forgot I had this)
All these guys are ready to party, preferably with 1 or 2 more warriors, 1 priest and 1 mage, alternatively a rogue or ranger.
We could use two priests but then I'd prefer at least three warriors. The idea being that the warriors should protect the other classes "to death" if need be (since warriors are really easy to get to 1k). Ideally everyone would be able to take care of themselves but thats often not the case. If a mage or priest has to teleport, maybe the warrior should teleport too, even if unhurt, in order to more quickly guard the lonely mage/priest.

I can play from 5-6 pm GMT+1 to 9-10pm during weekdays and (theoretically) all day on weekends but that's very theoretically, but just let me know whenever you want to play and I'll hopefully be able to join :)

Typically I'll be able to play from 7 to 9 or 10 pm GMT on weekdays.

I will keep the list up to date. UPDATED June 2'nd 2011

I agree with Warrior. Let's give the game a new piece of fun called teamplay.
The goal should be to kill Morgoth with teamwork and not being the deepest died one
(sounds like scoring a goal and losing 1-4 anyway).
Beside partying, it also includes equipment-managment/sharing/swapping.
- Quantity is more important than quality, its about refilling diving groups instead scumming on lvls.
- Maybe try to avoid to dive alone below 1k and stop when you are the only survivor. Wait for others.
- Groups with only 2 players left could wait at stages, maybe 1k, 1.5k, 2k etc, wait to refill with more people.
- Don't allow a mass death due something surprising, at least one member should have some distance to others
- Just follow Warriors list and give a short info about your current chars.

hehe...I have a much smaller mass of characters.
Domiano Dwarf warrior at 1250' +15 and 16 damage rings, 'Gondricam', +5 power gauntlets, 2 extra crap art gauntlets
Emumage Half troll mage with domiano at 1250' esp mace, 2 +4 int rings, +2 int cap, cloak 'Colluin', mordicins escapes
Tulkas Half troll rogue at 1000' with esp helm, and free action boots
Schpri Half troll priest with +4 str and con ring, FA boots, and godly insights

me and emulord tend to try to play these characters together. Our strategy is...Be ridiculously overlvl'd so that nothing ever stands a chance.In other words, skum. We usually go by the name of skumers inc. And by the way...

Grisu...dal-i-thalion....Would you be willing to trade with Tulkas, my esp helm and free action boots for Dal-i-thalion? That would just be great. Cus I have some party people that already have esp. Awaiting your reply.
Anything worth being done, is worth being overdone.

Hello everyone! I am wondering if any players would be interested in assembling a party for ironman. Ideally a party that meets one or more times per week to make progress, and push the limits of group play, fast diving, and good group strategy. Give me a PM here or just reply to this thread. I also play at least one hour per day so you could catch me in game.

Sorry about but Substitude isn´t longer in a Party with Pinky. Too much time and i tried it alone. Cleared almost of the level but wasn t able to survive.

Maybe a good moment to give my 10 Cents to this Partythread (Yeah 10 not 2, get it. ^^): I dont want to start 100 chars to leave them at 50 areas because i ll play them never or (with good luck in 3 month) again! I play my chars from the mainserver and they have to survive or they die, but they have to move ! (just said: nothing for bad to you Zal. I like to dive with you because i know it works good) But at all.. allmost of the Partychars here are not able to dive deeper because they haven´t enough Stuff/Money. The only working Party here is from Tulkas/Zendi.. (idk if they still exist. wasn´t here a few days).

I have to say sorry to Flex. The only One which has to wait for one of my Chars. I was too busy last time to play. If you left the Party, np. If not we can continue the next days if we are online at the same time. =)

Btw. Warrior. Do you remember the Party with Zal and Black Betty at the Main Server ? We asked you if we continue. How long is it ago ? I don´t know. But you can look into the logs if you want. I bet 5 - 6 Month.^^
Nothing for bad. I ll do my way allone if there isnt a new meeting with the Party (and if not its not a problem[Edit] means if i die). =)

All what i tried to say with that ton of words was: All Threats of the World will not help to hold a Party alive if the Partymembers are to rarely on (includes to be on but not to continue the partyplaying).
Thats what was shooting through my mind at the moment i saw the threat the first time. And thats why i did not post here earlier. =)

OT: I ll remove the Terminator 3 vs Jesus link from my signature soon. If you don t know it and you want to see... ... r_embedded Three little pigs
My english isnt bad. I am ahead of time. I use the spelling reform of the english language starting 2010.
