Regular meetup for Game Designers - always on the first monday each month. We'll pick one advanced design topic for each meeting and discuss it in the group (talks / slides are very welcome). After that we'll hang out, share a few drinks and have a good time.
This month's topic is "Competitive Multiplayer Games". I'll start the evening with a quick presentation about "Counter-play and Team-play". It's a concept by the League of Legends Lead Designer that he promoted at GDC. It's meant to help create interesting PvP gameplay.
