Re: Leagues United, where are you?

p.s. The icon I would have chose is this one https://github.com/allejo/bzion/blob/master/web/assets/imgs/bzflag_icon.png rather then identicons.(that's only my opinion) It was a decision fairly early on to use identicons in the event a user or team doesn't have an avatar set. This way, not everyone...

Re: Rikers

I am in favor of this idea. The GU League is the "Games United" League, not the "American and European" League. The Riker Cup, in my opinion, should reflect this sentiment. I think the main issue with the proposal, however, is the lag limit. 200ms is not going to give many additional people the abil...

Re: Quickshot league

To be honest, there aren't enough active players to even maintain the current leagues. A new league most likely wouldn't be able to draw enough activity to survive. If you are serious about making a quickshot league, however, there's a lot of planning that needs to be done, such as coordinating matc...

Re: Round Robin (All Teams Play) Team Cup

Before I say anything, let me clarify that the tournament you suggested is not a round-robin tournament . You are describing a single-elimination tournament . With that out of the way, I surprisingly like this idea--a single-elimination cup similar to the 1vs1 tournament that proves who the current ...

Re: Team Elemination Cup Suggestion

So essentially you are just planning an official match several days in advance... What's the fun if only one other team gets to participate? I guess I don't see how you're "testing" your team cup by only having two team participate, one of them being your team. Why not add something more interesting...

That is what I have been doing. I just alt-tab out of the game instead of hitting the windows key after I hit F1. It gets rather annoying after a while.

It would be better if you removed the player names (the S key) and the radar and console (W and Q, IIRC). That way, we can clearly see the screenshot next time.
