Firebat Fridays ???

Postby Enkidu » Tue Feb 23, 2016 6:35 am

I just heard about it on the boards some time ago and I've even heard about it before I joined. I just wanna ask you guys a curious question... What is Firebat Fridays? I've never figured out what it is about and always wonder if it is a holiday for the boards or something. ???

I have never heard of it, so I don't think it exists anymore, if at all.

I think I would like that though, 1 starcraft day and 1 warcraft day weekly, but bi-weekly events probably work out better for most people

I didn't think about asking this earlier, but could you be referring to firebat frenzy saturday and satyr saturday? Those happen every saturday, alternating between sc2 and war3 every week, and we play modded maps.

Well not exactly, but speaking of which, why are they called "Firebat Friday" and "Firebat Frenzy" anyway? is it because of the abundant use of Terran Firebats?

it's the same reason wc3 is called satyr saturday, just to identify what game is being played. Satyrs are in warcraft, firebats are in starcraft.

Lol, no one has a life here. People just sleep in and forget to play if anything.

In short :

Firebat Friday (FF) -> SC1 (no longer exists)
Satyr Saturday (SS) -> War3
Frenzied Firebat Saturday (FFS)-> SC2

We essentially welcome anyone. We mostly play custom maps during the events. Sometimes a bit of melee.

Nowadays, the events goes the following :

Every 2 weeks on Saturdays, there is a War3 (SS) event and the next is SC2 (FFS) and then it rotates.

The schedule is now :
- Starcraft 2 (FFS) on February 27.
- Warcraft 3 (SS) on March 5.
- Starcraft 2 (FFS) on March 12.
- etc.

Times & Meetups :
- Starcraft 2 (FFS) : 9 PM GMT-5 (Eastern Time). Americas server. Group : Campaign Creations.
- Warcraft 3 (SS) : 9 PM GMT-5 (Eastern Time). USWest. Channel : op tpcnet

Btw, you can contact me or ask questions since I am the event leader of both.

No clue. Guess it just happened. Most of my videos are like 10-20 views. Far from any 1000.

Got linked or crawled by a bot somewhere. Some of my videos had 40k+ views before I unlisted them.

OH! Now I get it now. I guess now it makes sense? So basically it's just that time of the week when you guys play StarCraft. Okay, I understand now. Kinda sad how that never really occured to me, but thanks for the info. :)
