What is the Casual Corner?
It is our new set of planned events that will showcase our community as they enjoy playing various casual games!
These planned events will be streamed on our AureusKnightsTV Twitch channel and then uploaded onto the Aureus Knights YouTube channel.
The events will revolve around very relaxed gameplay, allowing the focus to be on the participants and the carefree fun and conversation they are having.
What kind of events will happen in the Casual Corner?
The scheduled events will be varied, but will always be in casual games that are easily accessible. These could be free to play games or games that are popular among the community.
There will be a mix of small scale events, usually consisting of one group of players playing cooperatively against AI or other players outside of the community, and intracommunity events, being one group of community members against another group of community members. The intracommunity events would always be good natured and could be streamed from any perspective, including using multiple spectators to shoutcast the event.
Who can participate in the Casual Corner?
Everyone! The only requirement is that you're willing to have fun and enjoy some time with your fellow community members. You need to be okay with being seen/heard on the stream and videos as well.
While a roster will be set for an event before it happens, that roster will put together separately for each event. If the idea for an event is to showcase playing a specific game, the organizer will pull together the list from folks that have expressed an interest in playing that game or they will put out an open call for folks to sign up to participate.
The intracommunity events will be put together in the same fashion, or they pit two premade groups of friends against each other. Think one FFXIV flight playing against another FFXIV flight in a casual setting.
When will these events take place?
There is not going to be a set schedule for these events, but they will occur on a consistent basis.
Since not everyone in the community is on the same schedule, the day and times may vary, depending on the type of event and who is involved.
Initially, we will try to keep a rotation of one event each weekend, with the default day/time being Saturday @ 8pm EDT.
You've got my interest! Now what?
Make sure to keep an eye on this thread and the Guild News forum! The events will always be announced ahead of time there.
The YouTube videos will always be mentioned here once they've gone up, for those folks that miss the stream.
If you are interested in participating in any event or have a group that you'd like to put forth in an intracommunity event, send a PM to Bigcedric with any game you'd like to play or with your group's info.
