Mega Canadian Fleet

posted Jul 04, 2011 03:16:01 by PhilippeDeRouville
Well, it's the second time we actually do this. It started off with a few pals here and there playing Artemis, and it grew...

So yesterday was the second time the Quebec Fleet got together...

6 ships, some at more than 200 km from one another, connected via Ventrillo, all efforts coordinated by Communication officers...it was -INSANELY- cool...

What started at casual lvl 3 missions soon got rough with lvl 8 missions, and trying to coordinate our own efforts. We had been split in two battle forces with an admiral ship giving out orders. If you think playing at a single ship is cool...wait will you've tried doing that..

The only tricky part was to get the Hamachi server up(which can only have so much people connected at the same time), but we found a way around that, and we had great fun. So far two ships posted pictures of their bridges, one from Montreal and the other from Quebec City, you can check it out right here:

Hey, that is awesome! This is the first I have heard of any missions with near this many ships!
A vital mission, impossible odds and a ruthless enemy, what more could we ask for?

WOW! Please tell us more about this mega-fleet action. Where were all the crews located? Who organized it?

It sounds like people played coop. Was there any PVP?

Were there technical problems? Crashes? Internet hiccups?

connected via Ventrillo, all efforts coordinated by Communication officers


Were the comms officers key to setting the whole thing up? Do they have their own Comms Club?

Great job, Quebec Fleet! I'm impressed!
"Damn the torpedoes! Four bells, Captain Drayton!"

(Likely actual words of Admiral David Farragut, USN, at the battle of Mobile Bay. Four bells was the signal for the engine room to make full steam ahead).
