Well hey there, Mongoose fan, or perhaps meerkat pilgrim wandering wild. My name is Dul, and I’ll be your host on this wonderful journey I like to call the, uh, TEAM-UPDATEY-THING. Yeah. It was supposed to be a temporary name but nobody was helpful, so there we go [suggestions are welcome]. Hopefully I don’t have to say that too many times.
Anyways, if you’re new here, this is something Puds used to do, but I’ve now taken over. Don’t be alarmed.
Andbutso that’s the first bit of news this week. I’m in Team Mongoose now [and it should be noted that despite what Adam may tell you, I’m not the baby goose, he is]. Hello there. I’m known as DulJuice around the webs these days, but I really just go by Dul. You can find me here and there on the internet, and perhaps you already have. If not, the link to your left over there would be a good place to start.*
BUT DON’T LEAVE YET! Still so much more to talk about.
What else has your favorite group of small carnivorans been up to this week? Well let’s see now...
I’m sure you’ve noticed the brand new site layout Puddles designed, seeing as that’s what you’re looking at right now. Have you noticed the badass new logo that is badass and just screams... badassness? Now you have. And a new logo means new armor must be made, of course, so look out for an announcement about that coming up soon as well.
And don't forget about the podcast, either. Episode 69 is up, and it's the first podcast I'm in, so you know it's going to be good. P.S. 69.
You also may have heard that Team Mongoose is gettin’ it in on Guild Wars 2! We’re on the Jade Quarry server, and have a guild going as well. If you want in, you’re welcome to mail me [Dul.5712] and ask for an invite. The more the merrier!
The new map on Mongoose Country is in full swing, but Potato’s got a little marathon of Server Saturdays going on to finish up the builds from last map. You can find a playlist of all of those here [more will be added when they’re uploaded]. It’s a bit late, but if you haven’t already checked your email [your spam folder too!] for an acceptance email, you could be missing out on THE SERVER OF A LIFETIME.
If you haven’t seen, Potato and Puddles have been rolling out dual LPs lately. Puddles is uploading Saints Row 3 on his channel, while Potato’s doing Sleeping Dogs. If you know these guys, you know they can make any game hilarious, and these are no exception. Make sure to check out their latest episodes...
Also, if you have a Technic-shaped hole in your heart from the lack of SMPs, you might enjoy Adam’s latest Technic Pack LP:
His server, Rogue Nation, is even open for applications!
And speaking of Mongoose-y servers... Breny’s long-awaited public BeastCraft server will be starting its beta month either today or tomorrow! If you’re a big fan of Breny, keep an eye on the spiffy website Swift_y designed to be one of the 100 in the beta!
But I think that’s about it for this week’s update. Chances are, next week’s won’t be quite so long, but if you enjoyed this please let me know! I’d love critique and such so I can make these entertaining and helpful for you all [@DulJuice]. Check back around this time next week, and the next week, and the next week after that to make sure you’re super-Mongoose-saturated!
*Since people are bothersome, I’ll take this moment to clarify that you do not ask to get into Team Mongoose. You get asked. I’ve known these guys personally for almost a year now, a little bit after I got on Mongoose Country last August.
