I've finally tried CQC and it looks promising.
Do you want to play against each other?

I suggest this sunday at 18.00 GMT/20.00 CET/14.00 EST.
What do you think?

I am away from my game rig... cant do any ED this weekend.

Also, is CQC actually allowed to PICK who you play against? I thought it was 'random idiots who happen to be in queue, with no choice in the matter' ?

There is "Invite to squad" in first CQC menu. Does it work differently than expected?

I dunno, I've not used CQC at all, wasnt into the idea of being randomly pitted against a bunch of no-names I dont care about.

Maybe the invite to squad is to only wing-up with friends, not compete in a closed course against just those friends... which I would MUCH rather do (closed course).

I think I heard there is a way to play against friends, but I haven't really looked into that yet. In theory, I would be interested in some CQC, but I also can't play ED this weekend.

I'm lethal against NPCs, even an anaconda in my cobra (yes I fly a cobra... imagine what I could do in a vulture!). However against other players, I'm prolly not the twinker kiddie with lightning reflexes anymore.

It does not have to be CQC only. Teaming up in regular game is always fun :P

If this weekend is not ok suggest different day and time.

I interpreted CET as CST. Which btw is the best time zone. True story. I can stay up all Saturday night and get you in the morning :happy:

Somebody buy me the game and twist the planet back a few hours so I can go to be in time and I'm in!

I'm invited to a friend's birthday party on Saturday, so I wouldn't be available. Sunday would be okay, though.

Sunday would be OK but later ~22:00 CET because I am planing Game of Thrones The Board Game for whole afternoon :-)

Sometimes, even a master has to humbly step back and let the others win, too. ;)

If you noticed when we were playing GRID 2, I would slow down to let all you other guys catch up and have a chance. Same sort of thing.
