You can have up to 16 players so why is it restricted to 8?

pvtkjoe117: Didn't mean to imply that it was restricted to 8. As long as each of us has 7 or more friends in the game, we'll each get the achievement. I was just filling a minimal list.

Mgetter: Haven't heard from everyone yet, though just sent out some new FR's.

Maybe we could try for tomorrow, Wednesday, at 10pm EDT (GMT-5). That way we can make sure to get 8+ people. So we (may) have:

1. Blurbl
2. MathGuy42
3. MZLtron
4. YOTESLAYA
5. Mgetter
6. Mess 77
7. Cheese of Borg
8. ShadyKav

It might be better for Mess 77 to host. I know some of you want to boost other achievements too, though I'm hoping to get them without boosting. I may not stay up as late as some of you want to. I will play at least 2 quick complete games to make sure the Friends achievement unlocks for everyone. (I'm not sure if we have to play from start to finish together, or just part of a game. Seems like playing 2 games is safest in case someone comes in late.) I'll be cannon fodder for as long as I can for those who wish to boost their other achievements.

Edit: See the first post in this thread for the requirements of this achievement. It looks like we should wait in the lobby together until we have at least 8 of us, so we can start and finish the match together.

I am not sure of my availability at 8pm EDT. We also have people on the list on Central (GMT-6) and Pacific (GMT-8) time, so earlier could cut into their work time. Therefore, I think we should still try for 10pm EDT. I'm sorry. If you make a new list and meeting time, I'm willing to join if it fits my schedule.

I aggre with Math Guy, 10pm EDT, 7pm PDT.


Also, Mess, can you send everyone game invites when you start the game, and please make all of the positions privet slots so that the game does not get crowded with other people.

A reminder to Mess 77:

Set all slots to private slots so that other people do not mess this up.

Also, remember to set the max player count to at least 14.
