    The idea of this thread is that I want to get a few people together to play some GoW without taking things so seriously! I want to play for fun.

    I'm new to Live, I have only had my xbox since Chimbo and every time I play I keep getting my ass handed to me on a plate by the more experienced guys and gals. Now as fun as this is I really hope to get a few more newbies together to play and enjoy closer games. And who knows I might even improve! Fat chance!!!

    So guys post your responses and lets see if their is enough interest to set up some games online.

    p.s. I'm not against more experienced people if they want to play also, especially if they are willing to share some knowledge.

    I'd be interested in this too, I just started playing online a few nights ago and I'm pretty crap.

    Had the game since launch and was even in that tournament that never happened. However, after playing a few days ago in a ranked game I can safely say I must qualify as requiring to take part in new player games. I sucked that some 12 year old kid decided to mock me :rolleyes:

    Anyway, my Livetag is in my sig so feel free to add and if you see me online then invite or feel free to set up times and all the rest

    Wow, looks like there is easily enough people to get some games going. Thanks for all the quick responses. Much appreciated.

    I will send out some invites to all you guys tonight, and will be online about 8ish. Looking forward to a few rounds of multiplayer already.

    I understand that not everyone will be able to make it at the same time tonight especially as I've only given a few hours notice so I am proposing that if we try to setup a game for Thursday or Friday @ 8ish. I'll host and send out invites. Let me know if your interested.

    Cheers guys!

    Is it down to bandwidth?

    My lad tried to get on last night and thought Mav99 was hosting it. He didn't realise that someone else was hosting.

    Who will be hosting the next one... and when?

    Hi Guys,

    I would be up for some games if I'm around. Got GoW for Xmas and played a few matches, 1/4 way through single player on Hardcore.

    Guys lets see if how many people we can get online for tonight.

    It doesn't really matter who hosts as long as they send out invites so we can find them.

    For sake of argument I can host a game from 8 o'clock tonight. I can send out invites to people online on and around that time. I'm not sure how to search through all the games online to see who is hosting and find the one you want but it's probably not that difficult.
