When I took a little break at the beginning of summer, I had the best intentions of returning to do the Xbox FNF blog. I've been put into a new position at work where I won't be able to do the FNF post any more and I'm really bummed about that.
Two years ago Bill/Chilly asked for help getting new people in to help with the FNF Blog and I volunteered. When I first game to Destructoid in 2011, FNF is where I made my first social contacts on the site and they continue to this day. Destructoid is a great site with great people in the community and Friday Night Fights, I believe, brings people closer than any other part of the site due to the level of interaction. I'm grateful for my time hosting, participating and writing on the blog. I've made a lot of friends that have turned into actual real life friends and I wouldn't trade that for anything.
Thanks to everyone who I've played with other the past few years on Xbox, for those of you that hosted and those of you that commented on the blog.
This isn't goodbye, though. I'll still be around playing games on Friday nights or whenever (See below for my shameless contact info) and I hope to play with a lot of you out there.
If you're interested in taking over for me and giving the Xbox FNF Division a little love, get with Mike. He'll be looking for people.
Again, thanks for all the memories.
New to Friday Night Fights? It's easy to get involved!
Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!
The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up here in the cblogs followed by a recap post on the front page on the front page for last-minute planning.
To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! (Don't forget to say you're from Dtoid!) If you'd rather host something yourself, just post your details below in the following format:
Game: Game Name
Host: Dtoid Username
Gamertag: Xbox Live Gamertag
Time: Time (Eastern please!)
We hope to see you online!
