Server is up all the time so you can join to check that all your addons/keys are properly set, we recommend you do this in good time before the event starts. Our server runs battleye and signature checks so you must remove all other addons.

E-Z will be there as well...

but may i suggest changing your server a bit though where it doesn't ban for ever error?
i crashed to desktop earlier (happens a lot to me) and i was banned while i was not even in the server for some battle eye connection problem..
it really is kinda harsh, will keep players away.. literally.

I have now removed the automatic banning as it seems to ban without good reason, now it only kicks.

Can't wait for tonight's event.

Vietnam: The Experience Multiplayer Event. Friday, October 19th, 2012.

Our previous VTE MP event was on May 23rd, 2009. and it got us 26 players. Then there was the PMC 10th Anniversary MP event (with default ArmA 2) which was total failure. It was time for new VTE MP event since so many guys already joined our server on daily basis.

For me personally the event started server time 1951hrs and finished 0630hrs (official starting time 20:00 UTC).

When I joined it was way ahead of schedule (I believe 1651hrs UTC), but it was my plan all along. There was three guys playing at that time.

Was very surprised and happy to see my old friend lwlooz from good old OFP times to join, you can always count on lwlooz to save PMC MP events! :)

Other guys on the server were the new VTE players none of whom I recognized from ArmA times, in fact some of them (if I recall correctly) came through DayZ. Everyone was pretty much new to VTE at least in our MP community sense which started at ArmA.

When the event officially started at 20:00 UTC (2300hrs server time), we had exactly 11 guys online. We played couple of nice missions and everything went smoothly.

We peaked at 14 players joined at the same time. This is bit lower number than I was expecting considering the amount of advertisement we had and the average non-event nights usual player counts (5-8). I was hoping that we break our 2009 ArmA VTE event record of 26 players but no such luck.

We had great time playing though, as said everything went smoothly, missions worked fine and we even got to do lot of team work which is kind of surprising for such public gathering.

When lwlooz left at about 0240hrs we had 9 guys playing, soon after I had to eat for a moment and when I finished eating at 0310hrs we had 6 players. Finally the last guy dropped out at 0622hrs, I was around few minutes and then left exactly 0630hrs which was the official ending time of this event (technically).

During the event I took some screenshots and captured some video footage. Total 41min 49sec of raw video footage was captured which edited down to a 36min 34sec duration.

VTE MP Event Screenshot: 11 players and 14 players.

I would like to thank everyone who participated in our Vietnam: The Experience Multiplayer Event, it was really fun playing with you, thank you!
