Re: New map exclusive for LU

There are many things that I don't like about the map. However, at his point I'm still happy to attribute most to my lack of experience on the map. The one thing that irks me every time I play a fm on it is the way the map feels crowded. There are few opportunities for long shots. There are many are...

I'm with kierra, consti & Ken on the matter of number of caps counting for points.

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

I'm not worrying and I agree that this is a smaller detail, I just wanted to understand eti's reasoning.
Let's hope that more people join the discussion and that this will indeed be taken into serious consideration by the council.

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

I think number of caps should be taken into account if we want a competitive game at all. and as to flag camping and PCs, that's all part of the game, and players who abuse it only hurt their own reputation. Think of it like a football match where a player from the other side is injured and your te...

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.

Re: consolidation of teams 2.0

ccb: I agree that in the scenario you created not allowing individuals to gain points for their teams may result in a smaller match. But llrr and you could as easily add one or more individuals to your mix and match the three/four of us. It does not matter which idea we implement one can always crea...

Re: consolidation of teams 2.0

Uh, I tried to be concise and in my head I am ;)
I'm in favor of team vs individuals results in points for individual rankings for all players and in points for the team, not for the teams of the mixed players.

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

I feel as if we are missing a big opportunity to rekindle interest in team rankings if we don't allow teams to gain/lose teampoints matching vs individuals. The reason I lost interest in the league was because I could never find offis and if I found one it was seldom balanced or vs players I cared a...

Re: consolidation of teams 2.0

@ccb: I think allowing all scenarios to generate points either for team or individual ranking in the way I suggested will have the greatest impact. I don't like the idea that the performance of mixed individuals has even a slight impact on their teams rankings for the reasons both kierra and miro br...

Re: consolidation of teams 2.0

I totally agree with Monster. I don't want my matching outside my clan to affect my clan's standing. A clan is just that, mates playing together and that is what should affect clan standings! Mixed officials should only affect personal elo! I think you only agree with half of what I was trying to s...

"Elo's will be effected, since the team of 3 randoms won their elo will rise Not only does their elo rise but they earn points for their respective clans." And that is exactly what should not happen. Players should not be able to gain points for their teams without playing with their teammates as it...

Re: consolidation of teams 2.0

I think both ideas aren't so different. Llrrs suggestion does everything yours does, but only adds individual ranking as an addition to team ranking which is as far as I'm concerned a great thing to have.

I liked this concept when it was first introduced by zaphod years ago and I still think that a lot of good could come from it. But first of all I would strongly suggest not to name the teams "Team A/B" but "Team RED/GREEN" or something even more creative ;) I don't think that introducing two teams a...

Re: New Maps

Not sure if this is the right thread but I don't want to create a new one for this:

On allejo's server on Babel: If flags are dropped above pyras or tele they will fly to the bases and not like in the original one to the middle. Is this intentional? If yes I would vote to change it back.

Will this be possible in the future though? I think it would be interesting and also encouraging to know who lost / won vs who.
