Re: Why you play BzFlag

It's free and you don't need a supercomputer to run it. Plus, it's flexible - you can play CTF for an hour or just drop in for a quick 5 minute blast. Fun times all round :D

Re: Omaha Beach

I'm not usually a fan of themed maps, but this one is pretty cool. Seems a little biased in favour of the defending team (ie the reds), but I guess thats kind of the point. Mines and world weapons are a nice touch, and it looks good, but I don't think i'd come back and play it more than a few times....

Re: what flag do you pwn with?

I don't know about pwning, but I tend to do pretty well with stealth. SB, laser and burrow usually make for the fun times too :)

Re: The River Rampage

It's a nice map, simple but well laid out. I do think Crallion is right about the water though, especially since some of the spawn points seem to be on the bridges themselves - I could see a few accidental (and frustrating) suicides when the server is busy. Having a few pyramids close to the team fl...

Re: Different Maps

I'm not a huge fan of gimmicky maps, like Antartica or circuit board. Basically any map that sacrifices core gameplay for a distinctive visual style or a particular gimmick (the only flag is unlimited wings, for example) is not going to have any staying power. It might be busy for a few weeks, but p...

Re: Mouse Vs. Keyboard

I'm quite surprised that so many players use the keyboard for sniping, I much prefer the close control you get from a mouse - though I guess you could have problems with jitter if you play with high sensitivity, as scorchgeek was saying

Comes down to what you're used to I guess :)

Re: A thought on "unfair" capping

Personally I find servers with enforced 'even teams' cap rules really frustrating. I'm not advocating that you should cap when teams are 6-2 or similar (which is pretty pathetic really) but I've seen plenty of players simply logging out and then back in to prevent capping. People will always find a ...
