One day, I found a cool mmorpg called Wyvern, so I needed a name. The race I had chosen was high elf (I always go with high elves, and archery), so I got to thinking, elves -> forest -> tree -> log! And in a sheer bit of inspiration, added "wad" to it. Well, as it turns out, "Logwad" is quite unique...

Bzflag is no more violent that fireworks. Some "fire", a boom, that's it. I would bet that most good players don't even notice the explosion anymore either.

Emoticons are used to help convey your tone of voice, and can help distinguish what your feelings are, such as if your really ticked you just got tked, three times in as row, or if you just find it funny. For some reason, pictures do a worse job of conveying this to me for some reason. I also tend n...

Makes perfect sense. I don't really understand why they used rogue colors in the first place. I know people don't really work as a team much in rabbit hunt, but in most cases, neither do they in team games. :)

You can't. :)

Not without some crunching program anyway, one that scans for any of the million vulgarities there are.

Personally I would simply opt for a 3d party app, and tell anyone else you want to talk to about it.

I like the flags so far. The only part I do not like is not so clever teamates firing and nailing me. Constantly.

Keep'em. ^_^

Wings is one of the funnest and most strategic flags you can get.

2 flaps is ussually good enough.

Reducing its jump amount, making you slide all over, or move slower is no fun. I don't play on servers with wings flags like these. It's like they mock me. :cry:

Simply limiting the number of "jumps" a wings can do is sufficient.

The question I have is why people think it's fun to camp. Personally I find it boring and cheap. However, I do enjoy having the odds stacked against me, as long as I have to possiblity of taking out the camper. But I don't like seeing my team continuosly slautered, simply because I'm the only one go...

Perhaps you could allow "logos". This would be small bitmap files that you could use. They would be blended onto some predefined place of the tank, like on the sides or top.

What would be cool is if servers could choose to control the time of day or night. And if light sources other than the sun could be created. Doing this would allow you to create all dark maps were you could create dark "doom"-like areas with scattered lighting (would work best if servers could disab...

The main thing that erks me is when people who accuse me of cheating. I'm good enough to typically be in the top couple scores (but not good enought to stand much of a chance with some hardcore pros). But when I "somehow" am able to dodge someone's shots and then take them out, I simply must be chea...

Here's some bad flag ideas. Upside down flag - Your veiw is turned upside down (just your view, not tank) Reverse flag - everything is reversed, you have to move back to go foward, left to go right etc. Also nearly everyone agrees that machine gun it one of the most useless flags out there. In fact,...

I loved the pookyduck server, they had nearly everything perfect. Whats more, SR was a usefull flag, and no GM. They only thing it needed was limits on laser camper shots.

Split shot- you fire two shots but they spread out at angles that can be adjusted by the server. If you shoot straight at someone you will miss unless very close, I feel this might add interesting strategy. Mortar- a shot that will travel in a an arc up into the air, when the shot comes back down it...
