As some of you may or may not know, Bill "Chillybilly" Platt retired as the Community Playdate Manager. He did a great job while he did it and I had a blast working with him. He recrutied me into the FNF family so he was there to see my horrible first postings. In fact, I had to call him the first time because the formatting and HTML was so messed up I didn't know how to fix it. Thanks for all your work, Bill!
So who took his place? Our very own Mike Martin, or better known as PhilKenSebben. I've associated with Mike in the forums for a few years now and he is a great guy. Interesting, in a good way, to say the least. I look forward to working with him and seeing what happens with the FNF part of Destructoid.
Want to get to know your new Playdate Manager? He'll be hosting some games tonight on the Xbox One. He also created a Destructoid clan for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare so be sure to join that and play with other Dtoid members! You can join in-game (I think) or though the Call of Duty companion app.
Good luck to both Bill and Mike!
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!
