Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

I think your missing Moto's points, seems the discussion of an additional new format is putting a bandage on why players don't offi or slowly fall off participation. Ever discussed why fm's are more popular than offis? They don't segregate, players try and match teams as even as possible, players sw...

Re: Ruling admins

Agree with hrj, everyone seems to like the idea of a duc/GU board members being represented along with a player choice. We have a clear player nomination in hrj So would the ducati/ GU board's please forward their nomination from their respective ruling board's. Seems obvious the two are kierra and ...

Re: Ruling admins

things appear to be tasked by the GU admins There is a lot of overlap between the Ducati and GU leadership, which is why I expect the merger to proceed regardless of any player objections. Since kierra is the only remaining active Ducati Council member, the Ducati league is as well represented as p...

Re: Ruling admins

Further to Connies post, the only problem we have at the moment is things appear to be tasked by the GU admins, however GU admins don't have the mandate to control the merger. Any actions therefore adopted by the GU admins in creating this merger are then forced upon the new board, hence the need fo...

Re: Ruling admins

Just a thought and not trying to influence the hosters but offer these considerations in the selection process as impartial across the 2 active leagues GU and Duc and a players choice nomination that form the basis of their 3 choices. all 3 have to be agreeable to work together one from current GU a...

Re: Ruling admins

Thanks Kierra for your comments, bare in mind it was intended to be just an outline structure. Unless I'm mistaken the general consensus in this subforum is for a merger of all leagues. To that end I motion that we go about the process of selecting a board to navigate our way forward and dissolve al...

Re: Concept Idea for activity

Kierra wrote about why things failed in previous threads etc, that's fine but not the point I was making. I'm not adverse to A & B but how we get to make up A & B. It has to be done in a sensitive way and not by placing labels on tanks with a ELO system displayed for all to see. Otherwise you'll tak...

Surely someone must be good at linguistic morphology or neologism.

Extending BC's idea above but with a slight variation, whom were the people whom started both GU & Duc?
We might be able to form a name using their initials.

Re: MG Glitch

You may well be right.
Went through the config line by line found another line for 'Space' so actually I have this.

bind Space down fire
bind c down fire
bind Space up fire

So if I add another line
bind c up fire

Then the problem should be solved, correct?

Re: MG Glitch

Does it with keyboard as well, as soon as I pick up the flag, it starts firing. I hit the fire key on my keyboard, it stops immediately.
I have bound two firing keys on my keyboard, and have no firing keys on my mouse or mouse wheel.
