Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

I love you millennials...always looking for a participation trophy. Not only must you get elo points for wins but you see it as fitting to rub it in the losers face by gaining more advantage based on how many scores you get by capping? Really? Great sportsmanship and really mature I might add. I ho...

Re: New map exclusive for LU

Thanks for the comments guys. If I see you online I would be more than happy if you show me where you think are the places where ricos are missing on the map. I'm happy to work on small tweaks to the map to make it even better.

Re: New map exclusive for LU

Hey guys, for those of you who haven't watched the promotion video above I encourage you to do so :) I would like to emphasise and highlight the important point I highlighted in that video, and that is Xen is *not* Hix. It neither aims to replace Hix nor aims to improve Hix. I find myself having to ...

Re: New map exclusive for LU

Thank you to all for helping to test the map out. In the week that it's been released around 40 FMs have been played on it. Special thanks to allejo for helping me hosting it and updating the map for me :) To mark its official release for leagues united, here is a short promotional video. Enjoy! htt...

Re: New map exclusive for LU

Hey guys, please note that the server name has been updated to the public LU list, with the same port 5157. The map is also updated to the latest version with minor edits and objects cleaned up (eliminated overlap to make radar view clearer). We've had around 20 fms in two days on the map, so if you...

New map exclusive for LU

Hi all, a new map called "xen", based off hix, is now hosted at bzflag.allejo.io:5157. It's a LU exclusive map as it is aimed at league play. There is no FFA version and there's no plans to have one. The server supports /timelimit and /countdown in order to play FMs. Please give it a try and let me ...

Re: Stats

Yeah tbh i don't understand why.. the number of matches stat should be based off all the matches, fm and offis, but the win ratio should only be based off offis. Then again, it doesn't actually matter right now because these stats aren't used for anything yet. I definitely think that including FMs c...

Re: Rikers Cup with a twist

I proposed that we showcase the maps in LU, so I was thinking of 30mins matches each of hix, duc, and pb. We could also do babel, dupi, and the new pass the flag map for some serious chaos :) Otherwise I like the idea, especially that we can include as many of the new players as possible irrespectiv...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

I'm happy with either way, and since it seems like we have some players preferring one over the other and vice versa, but no majority, I think it would be best if the council can make a decision on this matter.

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

I would like to add that if we make caps affect ELO, it will only provide bonus ELO gain for the winning team, based upon the number of cap differential. There will be no extra points loss for the losing team. A limit of some form, most likely at +5 caps, will also be imposed to ensure that no furth...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

I'm with the opinion that player rating should not be affected by level of activity. Also, I'd personally prefer that the margin of score difference in a match not be a factor in the rating. Continuing to play a match where you're being soundly beaten just to try to lose fewer points than otherwise...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

Why not just have active versus inactive players and a certain threshold for activity, like we have already for teams? Sometimes the best solution is the simplest solution. Also, I'd personally prefer that the margin of score difference in a match not be a factor in the rating. Continuing to play a...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

Ok, on the subject of afk ELO camp top score issue, here is my suggestion: We introduce a minimum activity level for each season. For example, 3 offis. If a player plays at least 3 offis during the season, their ELO at the end of the season carries into the next season and is not modified. If a play...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

Thanks Indy and good work to everyone on making this proposal possible. As far as I can tell there are two outstanding issues we still need to address. 1. How caps will affect ELOs (or no effect at all?) 2. How to prevent afk ELO camping without resetting the ELO per season. For the first issue, I h...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

I think eti has a good point. Sometimes when I am up 2 or 3 caps with a few minutes left, I stop caring and will not try very hard to prevent a cap or cap myself. If each point mattered, I would keep fighting to the end to get what I deserve. I don't really like the idea of worse teams gaining poin...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

I don't think you are going to reach a solution that makes everyone happy I suggest opening a poll (listing all options) and going by the result. At least to start from somewhere and then build upon that poll result depending on the complains after implementation. The original post in this thread h...

Hola, i like the idea but if you guys are worried about new players why not just set an automatic team for them to join? The team would be run by admins and the span of the player in the team would be decided by admins. (Sorry for bad Miro) -Off topic- can we get emojis in game? :D Hey roo, the ide...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

First, please don't misinterpret my comments as being completely negative as they are not. I see merit in some of the suggested changes (llr's) but also see some of them (like ccb's) as having the unintended affect of eliminating the point of having team play. I believe, for any of the players who ...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

CTF *score* will be taken into account for ELO gain/loss. This means that 1-0 will not have the same effect as 10-0. However, a strong team winning 1-0 against a weaker will result in minimal ELO gain as opposed to winning 10-0. Note that this feature will be different to the current ELO system, wh...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

Having the amount of caps influence the amount of points gained/lost might be a bad idea as it encourages pcs and flag camping etc. I have had several comments regarding this. Don't worry, there will probably be two options we will discuss about. Either way, they should provide no incentive to flag...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

As an additional point to my previous two posts: CTF *score* will be taken into account for ELO gain/loss. This means that 1-0 will not have the same effect as 10-0. However, unlike etigah's suggestion, there will unlikely be a "suggested score" before a match starts, because this again can be too a...
