Re: "The One League" Recruitment server

Thanks Blast for getting back to me! If you look at time stamps I actually posted this BEFORE reading your other post...so sorry for my timing! I'll make sure it works out better in the future!

Re: How to increase activity?

Anyone want to meet up at a set time and play some sudden death Fun Matches? Test it out a bit?

"The One League" Recruitment server

I'd like to discuss the availability and reaction to adding plugins on a select server. I am also curious as to which of these plugins already exist, if any. The reason I'm curious is because I'd like to have a public league server (or potential fun match server) where plugins are used to even the d...

Re: How to increase activity?

Perhaps my phrasing wasn't clear enough... I'm not saying we should make the most popular map a league map, but that the most popular map SHOULD be a league map or have league association etc. So I guess I'm saying we need to come up with something new and different that appeals to a broad range of ...

Re: How to increase activity?

If the best part about bzflag is it's competitive league (community), then the most played map should be a league map.

Re: Language filter

Profanity is what we make it

How many offensive words will we ban? Is there a word list?

If someone asks for a word they find offensive to be added to the filter how do we cope with this?

Re: Concept Idea for activity

I believe that the BEST solution to inactivity would be to force players into a limited pool of teams (4 or 6) Regardless of how much it would suck to lose all of our match statistics and teams I'm pretty sure it's the best and easiest solution Maybe we can add a separate scoring ladder that is all ...

it's going to become a mess if we continue letting everyone feel like they've got opinions and power...opinions is fine, but it should be clear where the power resides and who, ultimately, holds last word

Re: New League Name

It's just a name and i think we care a bit too much. I honestly think that, the name of the league like many other things, can be changed if it's hated. Maybe we should pick something deliberately bad and then vote on a better name in the future. Fig's deliberately bad pick: "Where's The Flag league...

Re: Some essential questions - where do I find the answer?

#1 The traditional leagues lost most players while hardly any new players were joining. How will this new league deal with this, what is the plan to add/ win new players? This should say "bzflag lost most players"...the question is how to attract players to bzflag...the league always picks up a % o...

Re: Concept Idea for activity

I think frank has a point in what he is saying, but are you saying that we need to change the "makeup of teams"...I was thinking to create a "season" between RED/PURPLE as an alternate way to increase league activity, but without messing with how the league is currently active.

Re: New League Name

I feel that the league we are starting replaces all other leagues...isn't that kind of the point? Adding more maps, consolidating leagues... The only reason to start another league is to try to undermine what we're doing. Maybe just the "battle zone league" if we're so worried about sponsorship or e...

I guess it was made clear, but I still was thinking these teams would ONLY vs eachother (Red vs Purple)...not playing against other teams (the common example is RED vs FF).

Re: Concept Idea for activity

I support this idea...loved it when it was implemented in zaphods league.

I would like to see seasons, maybe 3 months, where new captains are voted on and then those captains pick players (like gym class dodgeball). That way we can add incentive and a rhythm to regular league play.

Re: possible Public poll sample

I'd like to push an option that states "All bans over a year (maybe 2 years?) old are revoked, giving players a seconds chance" That way Snake1243 can still be banned, but all others can get their second chance. Also I think we have too many league name options, it should be less than 5 to get close...

I think we should go ahead and do this - "push it through" so to say. Polling on a name, point system etc. all of these things are not necessary. We can fix any issues that arise after implementation. If we push this through it will create lots of buzz on the new league servers...discussions, opinio...

Alezakos has said he would host a dedicated server for new maps being introduced to the league. He is willing to rotate maps each month.
