I just want to give my heartfelt thanks to our Xbox Squad Leader for his brilliant work organizing last night's community playdate.
With all the assorted messages and friend requests that I had in the short time our playdate announcement was on the dashboard, I can only imagine what FOE's inbox looked like.
IMO, last night went quite well, especially since it seemed that none of us knew quite what to expect. I was able to talk to quite a few non-TOGgers and explain to them what we were about.... and dispel the myth that we were game developers. I seriously don't know where people got that from.
At the very least, I have some new friends that I'm looking forward to playing with again in the future, and I hope some potential new TOG members.
As far as the gaming went, well that was absolutely fantastic. It was an honor to be in a full TOG squad trying to gun down our temporary enemies, our TOG brothers. It wasn't too bad getting shot in the back by them either.
I still feel like a newcomer to this community, but you all feel like old friends to me. I had a great time and truly hope that we can organize more playdates - Xbox sanctioned or not.
Grat's on getting my tags bro, you deserve them!
