Follow the link to see the Facebook video announcement. https://www.facebook.com/CatalystDemoTeam/

Agents will receive the link to the files next week. Agents at Origins are getting it early.  :)

As a starting point, I suggest posting in the Challenges and Gatherings section. The Demo Team members may have some additional resources for you.

Okay, for someone who hasn't participated in one of these before, how does it work?  Everyone plays a game, one side gets a point for winning and the most wins around the world wins the event?

There are plenty of Demo Team events in this child forum. Why send people elsewhere?

Where do we go to find a demo agent? There has to be one in the greater Philadelphia region, there's a good number of Battletech players between Philly, Delaware County, and New Jersey.

I'm getting issues trying to load up http://www.catalystdemos.com/ , the page times out.
I'd rather be lucky than good

For some reason that part of their site hasn't worked in over a year...

Update:

All active agents received their copies of the event today. Now we need to match up players and agents.

There are basically 3 options for this and they are being handled in the Challenges and Gatherings Section.

World Wide Event 2017: Scheduled for when agents have a firm date and location. Check here first. http://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=57915.0

World Wide Event 2017: Agent/Player Match-Up for any player who isn't seeing any agent running an event in their area http://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=57914.0

Agent Application: for anyone who is in an area that doesn't have an agent and wants to become an agent so they can run this event. https://www.dropbox.com/s/denrdmds83kiuep/Agent%20Application.pdf?dl=0

Hopefully through these methods we can meet most needs.

Now I'm pretty sure that in my corner of the world (the Netherlands), there are no active agents. If I'm wrong, some contact information would be nice. If I'm right, perhaps I should consider becoming an agent myself...

Will you be the New Oslo Militia, working desperately to stave off Clan Wolf forces, and buy time for the technicians of Gorton, Kingsley & Thorpe (GKT) Enterprises facility to remove or destroy resources before it can fall into Clan hands.  Will you be the warriors of Clan Wolf, cutting down the inner sphere surats who are pitifully working to keep you from your prize.

Come on out for some Battletech fun.  Beginners welcome.
