Wanting To Make A 'vs Superplayer' Gametype

Hello! I've recently started playing Team Fortress 2 (team-based FPS like BZFlag). There's a game type there that I really enjoy called ' vs Saxton Hale '. It's where a whole team is pitted against a player who has super health and only a very high melee attack; similar to BZFlag's Rabbit Hunt excep...

What Makes A Good Teammate?

A while back, we asked what makes a good BZFlag player. So to level up, what makes a good BZFlag teammate?

- Communicates well
- Watches your back
- Cooperates
- Doesn't tk or do stuff to mess things up

1. Plays well and fair with good sportsmanship and respect. When unskilled, is willing to learn and work up skill. 2. Cheats, talks foul and/or is a sore loser. When unskilled, accuses everyone else of cheating or cheats rather than being humble enough to learn from other players and taking the time...

A great idea would be to get custom shirts with your callsign on the back and a BZ Flag logo on the breastpocket. That way people can find you in public.

Unfortunately, this may earn you a beating if you have a bad reputation in BZ. :wink:

Probably a plugin to determine a percentage of players on the base, with say, the US flags as the 'money' would do well for your idea, The Vet. Possibly 60 or so % of the team have to have a US flag while they're on the base. This is a great idea. That way, you can balance big vs small teams. Howev...

one more idea would be to have a htf between two stores (like you stealing money for the other) Very cool! And you would win when one team has so much a percentage of the money flags captured and held in their store! But how about this variation with only one central store: Instead of the previous ...

I like the flag store idea. Do you mean that there is a central location containing many super flags (The Store)? And the teams must control it to access the flags? That would be a great idea for a CTF or team slayer map.

I use a stock '02 Microsoft wired optical mouse on a crappy mousepad from some career fair somewhere. Just the usual two buttons and wheel button.

But check this out; Saturos uses a Wii. :D

All the greens at traffic lights in the US are at the bottom. Yellow in the middle, red on top. Stop signs are Octagonal, and have the word STOP written on them. Elementary, my dear Watson.

What about a public blacklist of cheat servers, cheaters and corrupt admins that could be regulated by the higher-ranking registered players?

Hello

I must protest your banning of surveys from this forum. I feel they are an integral part of the BZ community discussion and a legitimate way for players to get to know each other. Rather than pose an outright ban, could you suggest a forum where we could post surveys? P.S. I would understand not hav...

I was looking around the player stats page and I am curious as to how someone can get a score in the tens of thousands.

Heh, Really, when you look at it, there really isn't such a thing as a 'useless flag'. Each flag can have its use, like US used for counter-THing, PZ for confusing opponents that fight by radar or for corrupting a GM lock so your teammates can take them out. But other than that, I'm surprised flags ...
