copyright question

I`d like to know if the ducati and the pillbox map are copyrighted or not. Have they been released under some kind of public license so that everyone can use them? If they`re copyrighted, who holds the copyright now? I`ve searched the wiki and the forum and asked many people but i coulnd`t get a sat...

Re: pillbox league now with ricochet

The test now is over (almost) without any good feedback and the discussion in this thread is getting off-topic. The test server has been removed and there will be no changings in the pb style.
There is an interesting idea about a new open league with pb style, but more about that another time.

pillbox league now with ricochet

As the current pillbox style isnt`t attracting any interest since ages we are now experimenting with a new gameplay. Therefore ricochet has been added to [bzpro.net :: 60001]. The gameplay now is definetely much faster and more challenging. Nevertheless it definetely needs to be balanced. Basic idea...

Re: 1st official pillbox league pick-up contest!

@jh^: might be an idea if enough players are interested. But the current limit is 5 vs 5 or even less players on the servers. This leads back to the problem that mentioned above, that you need interested admins and serverowners working on it. Also i doubt a one day event really helps to bring back a...

Re: 1st official pillbox league pick-up contest!

First: The contest is delayed for an uncertain time @kc9foh: yeah, you`re one of the guys we would need now @red-der: pb league already has a good FAQ. There is also a links section e.g. to strayer`s bzstats. If someone spends 10 mins on reading the stuff 95% of his questions will be answered. Ther...

Re: 1st official pillbox league pick-up contest!

I have to discuss the details with longhair first, but one good idea for the restart would be the following initial idea: -teams with at least six players, so that if two or three players are inactive once more the team is still able to play -scheduled matches! Unscheduled matches simply don`t work ...

The 1vs1 contest has been announced around 1,5 months before the registration deadline and during/after the contest many players asked me why i...

It was actually planned to have a final for place 3, but moonpix told me, after having lost the very close fight against wizard, he could not focus any more on these matches, and if he played he only would have played crap. So he expressly gave up and SilentAssassin is third, as posted on the 1vs1 s...
