Re: Why are there only like 30 people playing BZFLAG at one

The learning curve on this game is just too steep. New players join geno dominated servers and then get abused because more experienced players take advantage of them. I can imagine it's quite discouraging to join as a complete newbie and then get cussed or poll banned off a server because you're be...

Re: A new year, a new beginning.

consti, i agree that as a quick point of reference, the 1vs1 site was a handy way of sorting out the rankings for your tournament, but i can see several issues with it. For starters a 1vs1 ranking doesn't necessarily represent the skill of a player in a team situation. A player could have played few...

A new year, a new beginning.

I was perusing the 1vs1.bzflag.net website, and i thought that perhaps there was room for improvement. Not only with the website, but with the 1vs1 league itself. Personally i would like to see the entire 1vs1 league rebooted, all previous data archived and players required to re-register in order t...

Additional Country Flags for www.guleague.org

Would it be possible to add a few extra Country flags to the list on the GU website? There are currently a few players who are unable to update their Country location because the appropriate flag is unavailable. Anyone who has a flag which they feel needs to be included, please post below with an im...

Riot now with scoreboard.

It's happened folks. Riot FFA has got a scoreboard. Type /highscore or /lowscore to see if you've graced the wall of fame/shame. :lol-old:

For everyone who excels at either one of the extremes, jump on the server and set the bar! *cough* green manalishi is a noob *cough*

Darken Forums borders and text?

I find that the blue used for the bordering and the topic text doesn't have enough contrast with the light blue background, which causes them to blend together a bit and make it slightly more difficult to read.
Would it be possible to Darken the borders and text a bit?

Re: A new matching variant for GU league

belonging to more than one team will get you banned. No sorry. This idea conflicts with GUleague rules. :lol-old: People either want to play a large fm or an official match without all the crap that comes in between, such as finding viable players, which can often involve searching through multiple...

Medals.

Has anyone ever considered some sorta medal system for teams? admins could award medals to teams for certain achievements such as 100th match, 500th match, 1000th match, or 5.0 activity or reaching 1500 points. Medals would appear in a certain section of a teams profile page. Specific players could ...

20min matches are not REAL gu matches and so this record is irrelevant.

From my understanding, he was removed from the spawn list for 48 hours. However, it was overlooked that the admin and/or cop groups also provide spawn/talk permissions. So, this wasn't a lie or a deliberate act of letting an admin off easy. It was simply an oversight with the configuration of the g...

Another league Tourney.

Since a large majority of the players who are actually active nowdays dont get to play in Rikers. Perhaps GU league should host a tournament that includes all players. the Match-a-Thon for example was a great way to include everyone because you didnt have to be pro. you just had to match a lot.
