  • Alien Swarm Pickup Games [Update!]

    #Swarm.Pickup on Qnet is now fully functional!

    The channel is designed for ppl who want organised games of Alien Swarm with like minded people without all teh stress of getting together a good group of people to play and a good server to play on, we've done that for you!

    We recently recieved 'Official channel' status from the AS team and also got sponsored by who have gratiously supplied us with 2 servers for the pickup channel!

    Swarm.Pickup #1 runs Single Missions while Swarm.Pickup #2 runs Campaign's

    Around 40 users in the channel at the moment bug blasting as we speak!

    Very easy to use system, just join the channel and type:

    !add <class>

    where <class> is the 1st letter of the player class you would like to be during the game eg.

    !add M

    Will add you as a Medic ( W = Weapons Specialist, T = Tech and E = Explosives )

    Come on down and join the bugapalooza in #Swarm.Pickup on

                      Excellent idea. I'll surely be visiting this channel tonight to get some pugs going.

                      I'm growing tired of the pub players, but every once in awhile I'll run across a patient and skilled group. I was in a completely random group of 6 last night.... but everyone acted and played great. We walked most of the time...kept formations... and worked as a team. I was amazed at how easily we finished the mission.

                      These are the kind of groups I'm looking for... and then dive into the realm of "hard" and "insane" difficulties.

                        ... and those are the kinds of groups you'll find in #Swarm.Pickup.

                          Oh the irony. The other kind of groups you will find are teamkilling friendly fire death match players where it takes you 20 tries to reach Williams and on Salvage you never get out of the door. I can't even believe the game I was just in.

                              Pickup is either pretty good or simply terrible
