ShootMania goes Beta; and FNG goes with it!

Near the end of last week, ShootMania went Beta.  Several Friday Night Gamers recevied keys thanks to the generosity of Nadeo, both in their beta signup and with those of us that played through the Alpha.

We spent last Friday's session playing together in the game and only had one beta key holder missing.  In attendance were:
Joshterizermizer (which gracefully set up an alternate Mumble server for us so we could save That One Bandwidth for the ShootMania server.)
Thundr Jr (played by Thundr)  *CACKLE!*

DirtyD brought a friend, whose last part of his alias is "blase" but I can't remember the first (we were calling him by first name)... and ThatOneGuy, Mando and DungeonsMaster had a guest named "jared".
We hope they will join us again.

Those in attendance were scattered throughout the night, but our server was filled with the maximum 16 players for the majority of the night, and we all had a blast.

We took a short break from our server to join an Elite server and try that mode out.  It was fun, and I hope to set up our own private Elite server so we can give it another go with solely FNG to see how it plays out.

Our beta access is only good for a 7 days, so I hope all of you that have keys will join us as much as possible throughout the week, even if only for short sessions.

We might get an extension, but we're not sure how/when yet.

I will take some screenshots of us in there sometime this week.  We will give you a sneak peak of a couple of maps FragMonger made during the alpha, and are getting some nice attention from players around the world.

For those of you waiting for beta access, each week Nadeo will be giving new players beta keys, in chronological order of when they signed up on the site.  Sign-up is closed now, but those that made it in before closing should get a 7-day key before the open beta comes... so hang tight!
