Credit to PyroJockey for setting this up!

We want to hold an International Event in the ARENA on Saturday April 7th, 2012

Because Pyro figured out how to switch the "region" setting on a server WHILE it is running, we can now do matches on one server that can include players from all over the world!!


We will have an admin(s) switch the server to a different region every 5 minutes to allow players to join from any continent.


How to join:

The region the server is listed in will change at regular 5 minute intervals.






North American players can join the server on the hour, 15 minutes past the hour, 30 minutes past the hour and 45 minutes past the hour (blue sections)

European players can join the server 5 minutes past the hour, 20 minutes past the hour, 35 minutes past the hour and 50 minutes past the hour (red sections)

Japanese players can join the server 10 minutes past the hour, 25 minutes past the hour, 40 minutes past the hour and 55 minutes past the hour (green sections)

At the server selection screen look for the "International Arena" server.

If you are on at the appropriate time and you do not see the server, continue to press "square" on your controller to refresh the server list until the server appears. If the server still does not appear, check on GameTracker or contact us in our ChatBox to see if the server is full.

Each region will have a 5 minute window of opportunity to join, 4 times each hour. If you missed your regions window, you will have another opportunity to join in 10 minutes or less.

We will be monitoring the ChatBox.
Let us know if you are having difficulty connecting!

Since this event has a time-limit... If the server gets full and new players are asking to join, we will kick inactive players to make room.



Here is the time of the Event in most time zones:



UTC 1500-1800 (daylight savings time not used)


JST Tokyo 2400-0300 UTC+9 (daylight savings time not used) (12Mid-3:00AM)

CET Berlin 1700-2000 UTC+2 (5:00PM-8:00PM)

BST London 1600-1900 UTC+1 (4:00PM-7:00PM)

EDT New York 1100-1400 UTC-4 (11:00AM-2:00PM)

CDT Chicago 1000-1300 UTC-5 (10:00AM-1:00PM)

MDT Denver 0900-1200 UTC-6 (9:00AM-12Noon)

PDT Los Angeles 0800-1100 UTC-7 (8:00AM-11:00AM)


International Arena Saturday April 7th, 2012

I haven't played SWBFII in quite some time, and haven't been on the site in a long ass time either, but this does sound pretty cool.. I could use a break from some of the new gen games I've been playing

And, I'm glad to see that the Arena's still up and running, it's comforting to know people can still appreciate games that've trailed behind in the game time-line.


I'll try to make it in for sure!

Man I was growing so tired of even looking at this server, but now this sounds incredible. Shonuff what are the settings put on? Team damage I hope.

Some of the euro chats if anyone needs them:
ror-clan.tk
tlf.swbf2.tk

The international glitching event was a huge success, this will be even bigger since it is regular gameplay!

I wont be missing this.

Eh for those of us like myself who suck at converting military time to regular time and vice versa, what time will this happen central time here in the USA?

I'll add the 12-hour clock times to it.

As far as settings go.... I was thinking I'll just remove the Specials-mod and cut the flag-scores and timers in half. But play with all of the rest of the normal Arena settings and map rotation.

Team Damage OFF.

No tanks.

Anyone can go outside on Polis Massa.

5 Scores for Capture the Flag.

150 Kills for Conquest.

30 Minute Timer on all Maps.



Sound good?

Who knows what the map rotation will be by then! laugh

There have been positive responses on the European forums and the Japanese have accepted the invitation. It looks like the makings for quite a party on the 7th. cheers
