The times have been added. If you are wondering what it is in your local time, I believe some people find Google to be very helpful.

Mixed All-Stars Event

Leagues United is hosting a new all-stars event, but this time with a twist: instead of playing 3 straight games on the same map, they will be played on different maps. As things stand, the first two maps will be hix and ducati, and the final map will be chosen by the two captains. Speaking of capta...

Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

you are stating it's a "handicap" but let's see, both players are on a pc, both are using a mouse, and a keyboard, and both are playing under the same server settings, this is not a handicap. A handicap is when one player isn't playing under the same conditions as the other. This is not the case he...

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. Hix is not in our favour. Ducati is unfavourable. There is a difference. Do you want maps such that certain players are disadvantaged?...

Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

Why can't we do it right, for once?? # Set a realistic time-frame for this decision (for example 6 months) # Set up a testserver with acceleration limit off. # Have a decent amount of funmatches played there (50-100). Ask only those players who actually played some ducati matches on this testserver...

Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

Just to mention: styx was asking for no acceleration limit on ducati for a long time which was presented by some other ducati council member as main reason why he doesn't play that style. Finally the limit was removed on one of the allejo's servers over a year ago but he never played there anyway. ...

Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

This is the best way to balance the playing field, as I said not everyone is using a high speed mouse or low fps, why should one need good hardware to compete?, mouse users can change directions the fastest and it extremely hard for someone to kill a good mouse user since their tank movements are i...

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. The idea...

Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

Acceleration limit is a cheap trick to 'balance' the playing field. Someone gifted with great reflexes is handicapped because the movement of his/her tank no longer matches what he/she is used to. I notice it particularly in comparison to how I move and react on hix servers. I do not like being hand...

Re: Ruling admins

I believe it's essential the new board controls this subforum, poll management, management structure, in effect the merger, not GU Admins. To that end I propose we ask the hosters brad, Bullet Catcher and allejo to select the first 3 admins by unanimous vote, once selected the 3 new board members u...

Re: Match Points and Lengths

I think there should be benefits to playing with more map diversity. For instance if you keep your winning % equal (50% ducati/ 50% GU) you should get a small point bonus. Why? Your team is literally showing more skill by winning on both maps. I'm not married to the details, but I do think a bonus ...

Maps should be played for their playability, not for how much more reward they can generate.

Are those people who are banned asking for reinstatement? I don't see the point of giving them consideration if they haven't asked for it.

Re: Rules: review and maybe revise/update

Looks like a good set of rules there Consti, but I would like to raise one question regarding the FPS limit: I do not change my fps limit myself, but I know of those who do not in order to lag/stutter, but to make them bounce off walls where people expect them to stick. This naturally would be banne...

Re: Admin/cops:

I think that cops is a good idea, but not too many of them. Whether they are hidden or not doesn't really make too much of a difference. Hidden seems to give a greater chance of catching people doing bad things, but the idea is prevention, not punishment, so I think visible is preferable.

Most players have no idea the amount of work & time put into this one player alone. He can play on other maps,...

It looks a lot like Bloodbath (with the ramps and stuff), did you get the idea from that?
Hm... Not really. Any similarities are unintentional.
