    "Now that's better."

    The Thursday Thirteen
    Start Time: 7pm Central Standard Time
    Twitch: Ascend_Hyperion
    XBL Gamertag: Ascend Hyperion
    Xbox Club: The Thursday 13 Customs Lobby
    [Map List/Feedback Archive]




    What Do We Test?

    - BTB -
    - Infection -
    - Mini-Games -

    - Non-Standard Team Size Maps -
    (1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 5v5, 6v6, 7v7)
    - Core Maps -
    (4v4)

    How The Lobby Works
    Each week, up to 13 different maps will be tested. The tests will be live streamed via Twitch on my account. The maps will be submitted to this thread using the given format below. Once all the submissions for the week have been received, an official list will be released as well as the play order for the stream. In the event that the map cap has not been reached, I may allow impromptu tests to fill spots.

    We will start with the larger stuff first and then wok our way down. Player count will be given priority in this order, 16>12>10>8>6>4>2.

    After each test, the lobby will provide feedback for the author. It is recommended that the author attend the test so they may receive feedback in real time. If they cannot play in-game, watching the stream is a good alternative. Feedback is also recorded on the map archive and can be accessed using the link provided above.


    Rules and Requests

    -Those in the lobby must be able to provide constructive feedback
    -No excessive raging
    -A Mic is preferred
    -If you must leave the lobby, it is appreciated if you can find a replacement before hand or give some warning first
    -Only one submission per person per week unless you speak with me ahead of time


    How To Submit

    Submitting a map is simple! Just post the information for your map using the format below:

    Gamertag:
    Map Name:
    Gametype Requested and Player Count:
    Short description:
    Link to Map:
    Gametype Link (If needed):



    The Xbox Club
    The lobby has it's own Xbox Club titled, The Thursday 13 Customs Lobby. This is the best platform to communicate, share and meet up with other Thursday 13 players. I post news inside the club in addition to other things. Club members are given priority invites when the lobby is starting up as well. To join in, you can request an invite from the club page or have any current member invite you. Come join in on the fun!

    You need to rename it to Turtle Lair and build a room based off of the TMNT living room area

    I like it. I can provide feedback and I'm generally pretty quiet on the mic. I can't say I should be a permanent testing member but add me (Rethal Sepsis) and if I'm on I'll gladly help out for as long as I can. This reminds me of the H3 test days...

    I will be at work during the test, so I won't be able to attend. Will the stream be archived so I can view it later?

    Thanks! I think I'd be best used as a sort of replacement for people who have to quit early or whatever. Actually I think a lot of people would probably be that way, if you made a sort of "reserves" list and invited them (if they're on) when committed testers had to leave or something in the hopes that you can fill out the group. That way they don't have to commit to 13 tests in the middle of the week

    I've got another 1v1 map I'm working on, but only play this if you don't get 13 other submissions since this is my second map post to this thread.

    Map: Skullus
    Game: 1v1 No Radar
    Description: A bare-bones duel. Current power set is Fuel Rod and Overshield. Recommendations appreciated.

    Might i suggest using Max's model of having a linked google document with dates and maps being tested? I doubt he would mind (that much).

    Hey there everyone! So while we still technically have 3 openings, here is the list for our first ever Thursday 13 stream! If no other submissions are received by start time, I will allow impromptu tests for those open slots.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1E2mZWtuUmHGSerKMdDyusfaGy2qBY0p_QCQjbWzNmks/edit?usp=sharing

    It goes without saying that I'll need testers. I'd appreciate those that submitted to play for a couple tests if possible. If you have or know others that would be willing to help, that is also great!
