Ok, so uh, last I head, there were going to be 4 generals. One for each gateway. Grunt in Asia, someone in Europe, PB on West and me on East. Is that still the plan or what? And will it affect the So&So's charter dealy in any way or what?

Just check, see if I still got a job here.

Well, the servers aren't going to be set up in gatway format most likely, so that idea is sort of out. Beyond that, we would all want to be on one server, so again, the general to a gateway idea is out. So no, you don't have a job!!!!! Well, okay, so i'm just f'ing with you on the job thing ofcourse, but yeah, i dunno what the deal with generals is. Where the hell have you been by the way?

There was a thread about this some time ago, and I think that most of us thought that a server in eastern USA would be optimal, but we have to wait and see how Blizzard sets up the servers.

It wasn't for the gateways specifically, but for timezones. One general for each of the major time zones, that also coincide with the Bnet gateways.

I remmeber somethign about having a general for each general (haha, i made a pun!) time zone, like east coast (US) west coast (US) Asia and Europe. This way, at allt imes of the day (except during school or work hours) we can have someone in charge.

Only problem is i dont have a general for Europe, and i already got four generals...

I was thinking on this recently, and have made a decision on what to do with our generals.

Flameburst-General of the western timezone and the western half of the mountain timezone.
Mason-eastern mountain timezone and central time zone
PB- Eastern timezone
Grunt-Asia...

As you can see we have a problem: who the fuck covers europe?
Another problem: Look at gurnt's position, he doesnt have a timezone he gets asia. It's not that i dont think Grunt can do it, but i really don't want to force such a large area onto him.

So heres some mroe bugs to workout

P.S.: sorry about my recent absenses, came down with a small flu.

Get well soon, Gunny .

I say that we don't worry too much about this and wait until beta/early retail to see how things work out before we make decisions

Just out of curiosity, why does it matter that grunt has all of asia since currently he is the only member in... all of asia?

Well, the clan size is going to presumably increase . Besides, there's some people who are in Asia, too..just cant remember their names right now .

I suppose I'll be handling Australia as well, since it's just a few hours away from Singapore . So you see, there's really quite a lot to cover .
