Friday Night Fights: Freedom day

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday everyone!

Better yet, Happy Fourth of July / Independence Day everyone!

Gonna be a short post today as I’ll be gone most of the day partaking in the holiday’s festivities and what not. 

To everyone heading out to parties tonight, be safe and have fun. To everyone else who’ll be spending the evening at home, we’ll see you online.

Let’s get to the games!

Friday Night Fights

New to FNF? Read this! 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 sign up to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, and I recap it all here on the front page to give it a bit more exposure.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! If you’d rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below!
