Re: Game Networking Improvement

You still have the problem that players have to adjust to a multitude of different bullet speeds.

Marking the tank does not help any bit when you see the bullets in your HUD or on radar, you can't be sure which of the other tanks shot at you.
So you really would have to mark the bullets.

Re: Game Networking Improvement

So, different bullet speeds eventually mean (when shot at): # you either can travel a specific distance while the bullet is on its way or you can not. # you either can turn around a certain angular degree or you can not # you either can dodge a shot or not (because it is distance/ bullet speed depen...

Re: Game Networking Improvement

etigah, if I understand you correctly:

5 players (each with different lag) simultaneous shooting at me would mean I see 5 shots coming at my tank, each with a different speed?

Re: Ducati Mini Map

The superiority of miniDUC for small ducati matches is known and one of the favorite maps played on ApplePie servers. It would make perfect sense to add it. But miniDUC is not just a smaller variant of ducati, it is a new map because one has to play it very differently. The underlying question is a ...

Re: Leagues United Website Issues + Bugs

There are several admins/cops that log onto the LU site everyday and some several times a day. Ask any gu player, match reports sent to me are posted in a timely manner. I am not asking for me, but for players who may not know how to handle such a situation. Their first place to search for it is - ...

Re: Leagues United Website Issues + Bugs

Well, one more: Can we have an official address where matchresults can be send to, in case a match was not automatically entered? Either cops or admins can do that, but with most of them sometimes not available for days this is not the best option anymore. If that is too much work to implement, you ...

Actually, yes: For example to send myself some League United reminders (and have them all in one place). Or as a means to draft a message, which the message system lacks.

Re: Individual ELO

Alright, my 2 cents: # flag captures # distance moved with flag # individual score # kills vs. each opponent # ... Nice statistics but they have not much value in a team-based ctf match. Examples: # Some players just focus on a single task - like defending and covering - while the teammate is captur...

Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

Who says every map has to be in favor of players who can react the fastest?
Some maps, like ducati do not. And that is one reason why many like it exactly that way.

Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

Since the acceleration limit heavily influences how ducati "feels", changing it would change the whole game.
The right time for this question would have been before the merger or at least it should have been included in the poll.

Personally I would prefer it if ducati stayed the way it is.

Some essential questions - where do I find the answer?

I would like to ask a few questions I have not found an answer in this sub-board. I've read a lot about who should be admin, how the new league should be named or how to handle bans. What I am still missing are answers to more essential questions. Maybe someone can point out whether this was already...
