Gaming Society Ventrillo Server

Posted: November 19, 2008 by gamingsociety in News

UMASS Dartmouth has its own Vent Server

Send us an email for IP/Port/Password info

Download Ventrilo from here

Please send an email to with your Real Name, Ventrillo Handel, and from your UMASS email before or quickly after logging onto the server. Should our server be abused, or hit maxed capacity, our admins will kick off players who have not given us their information.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t give out this information and use ventrillo with your friends. Just remember that this server is for UMASS Dartmouth students, and non-UMASS Dartmouth students will have preference during times of heavy demand. It’s a 50 person server, so hitting max most likely won’t happen but please understand that Non-Umass D students will be asked to log off.

Till then, if you play DOTA, L4D, World of Warcraft, CSS, etc. Feel free to use our Ventrillo’s server to your hearts content. If you feel the need for an additional channel, please email our admin, Fatalhawk, at

2HG- End of the month Magic

Posted: November 19, 2008 by gamingsociety in MTG

Legacy Rules, please note, additional banned cards for tonight

Banned Casual 2HG Cards

· Kokoshu The evening Star;

· Eraro Soratami Ascendent,

· all cards with storm.

· As well as anything else on the legacy banned list.

This not like our traditional tournaments. The new format summed up as: win as many games as your team can in 2 hours.

Please remember for 2HG, you need to no more than 4 copies of one card between 2 decks, 30 life, and you play with your partner at the same time.

If you never played 2HG before, COME TO THIS MEETING!

*these are not actually banned cards, but a joke for some of our regular gaming society members.

Gears of War 2 Launch Party!

Posted: November 6, 2008 by gamingsociety in VG


Ladies and Gentlemen, Start your chainsaws!  The Gaming Society would like to present the Gears of War 2 Launch Party on Friday, November 14th, starting at 6:30pm in the Campus Center.  We have again teamed up with Microsoft and SAIL to offer the UMass Dartmouth community a chance to come together and beat the crap out of each other.   If you remember the Halo 3 launch last year you will know that these events can get crowded quickly, so make sure you frag early and frag often.  In addition to free play, we will also be running a 2 man team tournament (rules to be announced at the event).  You do not need to show up with a partner, but be ready to find a teammate at the event. Microsoft has kindly donated a copy of Gears of War 2 and other swag to be given out at the event/won in the tournament. Food and drink will be provided, and most importantly, this event is FREE!
