Friday Night Fights: The power of teamwork

It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we work together, no? Whether we’re building human pyramids out of naked prisoners or rioting through the streets when our favorite sports team wins/loses the big sports game, our true potential is only ever reached through the power of teamwork.

The same can be said for our virtual lives, as well. Lucky for us, then, that teaming up with our fellow gamers to take down bosses or objectives has grown increasingly popular as of late! Be it in RPGs like Diablo III, shooters like Battlefield 3, or something in between, gamers the world over take up arms with one another every day to fight the good fight for the simple sake of accomplishing what we can’t do alone. And thanks to things like Rockstar’s new Social Club and Battlefield‘s new Platoon system, ganging up with like-minded gamers is only ever a click away. Technology kicks ass!

Well, until it kills us all, anyway. But who the hell knows when that’s gonna happen?

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 volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs followed by a recap post here on the front page for last-minute planning.

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! We’ll see you online!
