    I want to take an official count of who wants closed and who wants open chars. I know we voted on this previously, but now that we have all played the game there are bound to be different opinions. The main reason I bring this up is because I'm very interested in the idea of closed chars bringing this clan closer together and solving many problems. The biggest issue right now is that there aren't many clan games going on. Also, there are never many people in our channel. By having closed chars our bnet channel would be a lot busier since we would all be online to play. Closed chars would also make us more official as a clan. I think we are all in agreement that we should wait until bnet stabilizes before switching (if we do, it's up to you guys). However, a preliminary vote will help me to know what the general attitude is towards this prospect. NOTE: in a previous thread we found that the vast majority of us are located nearest the USEast realm, so that's the one we would use.

    Take your pick:
    vote "1" for closed
    vote "2" for open

    I vote to go to #1: closed characters... and that's my final ans. Well... not really my final final, cause I don't think we should get rid of open games if people want them, but I do think we'd get a little better clan unity if we did crate closed characters... Especially if we set up some games and have it so that people choose a character class that they have not played yet, and agree not to make another char of that class, so that way there is even more reason to join in the clan games.

    2, Open because you can have single player leveling sessions, play TCP/IP games, plus my third Necromancer hasn’t been screwed up yet, so I want to keep him around for a while and not have to start a new one. [​IMG]

    But once school starts I won't have much time to play (I go to a tough prep school). It may take me until October to get to where I am now (Normal, Act III, Lower Kurast, Level 25.5). Besides Blizzard is having lots of problems with its closed servers. I prefer TCP/IP personally, and I don't drink Alcohol. [​IMG]

    Closed. But leave open characters for a good week or two until the realms are at optimal performance level and until I have a router.

    We should start closed characters, but i'm still playing an open character with team alpha. Why not use both?

    I have a closed necro called mac_uhlkathra.....I think. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I agree here. I like closed, but it is completely unplayable. Lets wait for the problems to subside, then go closed.

    I agree with both of them...closed for clan games...and open for stuff like Team_Alpha (Beta, Gamma, Delta....where are you guys!)

    i'm voting closed, but as everyone else has said, we shouldn't start until the realms are playable.
    but i think we should keep our open characters for things like team alpha

    Closed sounds good but only when b-net wierdness is worked out. I think we should really just do the open alpha squad stuff. That would brig us closer as a clan. Closed would mean we would play together more but doing alpha squad would bring us closer together. Áou would actully get to know people in the clan. You would have scheduled times to play. It would be more of the partying experience that we all love. This is just my 2 cents though.

    Sorry, I may have given the wrong impression. We would still keep open chars for those who want them. But officially, where the clan is concerned, we would be closed. Regardless, we should at least wait for additional bandwidth upgrades on the realms. Version 1.03 is supposed to be out soon also.

    What would we do about clan members on other continents? I know we have some Europeans and Australians in the clan.

    Have always voted closed.

    Started Character in West, Mac_Lust

    Might play tonight for a bit. If you don't play so much in the first day or so they delete your character. I think two hours in the first 48 or something.

    I vote for closed players, but if people are logging in and want to play open, I'll do that too. I'm flexible...

    I vote #1, because every open charcter I have had has gotten messed up somehow... I am tired of having to start from scratch just because my computer locked up while I was playing. I am willing to play open, but I don't want to entrust my "good" character to my own hd :-)... maybe after I beat the single player game, I will be more willing to play open... but not right now.

    Okay I pulled the pin...
    NOW WHAT?

    You didn't say we would still play Open B-net games. I thought you were asking weither or not to make this clan exclusively closed. Okay, closed then, because no cheating. What??? No cheating? Your kiding! No cheating!!! Yippy!!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG]

    I vote 1, closed, because my lvl 37 barbarian is getting sort of boring with whirlwind...

    and I've played a couple sessions on closed with not much lag (pre-patch)

    Just as I thought, most of us are leaning towards closed. I wonder when battle.net will smooth out. When should I send a member e-mail announcing that we are doing closed for clan games? (because battle.net is still jacked)
