Re: Ruling admins

I think allejo is referring to actually not nailing down a ruling admin board just yet. As far as i can tell, we are waiting on: 1. nominations for admin board -see BC's comment in first post here.....would like to see 3 minimum added from the player pool if all the gu @ agree to the new league admi...

Re: Ruling admins

This committee was made for player representatives to voice their opinions and to get what the players want, not what the GU/Duc league admins want ;) Amen!!!!!! The leagues are made up of players, and I'm a firm believer that leaders serve the community. Yes we have rules and guidelines, but I fee...

Re: Consolidation

To all: This consolidation effort will come about because of the input and hard work of many - and there are too many to mention by name. It is a collaborative effort, no one person made it come about nor did one person do all the work - though I applaud the bzion coders for their perseverance and f...

Re: New Maps

Maps can be changed to have no superl flags and shot number limited.
There are versions of Babel with special flags and some without. Depends on how you want it set up. :)

it's a given that if players vote in Babel map....it will be without super flags and 3 shots only.

Decisions about name, bans, etc can come after the launch by input from those involved in the new league.....makes sense to me.

From the top of my mind there were: Grassroots (Babel) Tajitsu Octocage DuPi (Zaphod's Map) Ditto on the above! a...

Re: Match Points and Lengths

Again, i repeat myself: the only 30 min ducati matches played are for the special event matches, like Chesval and monthly fm's. If you look at the match page on duc site, there weren't any 30 min official matches in 2014 to the present. There were 2 30 min officials in 2013, 3 in 2012, none in 2011....

Looking over this thread, the consensus from players is:

1, ducati and gu each keep their prospective way of determining match points: .75, 1, 1.5 for duc; .67, 1 for GU

2. Match lengths: Duc 15-20-30. GU 20-30

Re: Consolidation

Yes, GU may have overtaken ducati in popularity from the viewpoint of most players....since most choose gu to fm/match. It doesn't mean there aren't players who prefer ducati. Part of the problem is most diehard duc players are in 2-3 teams. Two teams matching each other over and over do not make fo...

Re: Rules: review and maybe revise/update

There are so many players that are nick changers.
In official matches especially, players have a right to know 'who' they are matching against. Logging onto gu site, updates the team nicks.

Re: Consolidation

While BZFlag League certainly describes what we're trying to do here......For me, it's so generic that it lacks personality or "color". I was hoping for something that really catches attention.

I'm fine with it because 15/20 min matches are played in ducati.....no 30 min matches are played except for special events like ChesVal. so making 20 min in duc the equivalent of gu's 30min makes sense....both are the longest time length matches played.....so in reality they are equivalent!

Re: Match Points and Lengths

Regarding match lengths: I don't think we should have a general match length for both Ducati maps and hix maps. During a hix match there are some recurring actions like defending/attacking around the corner, base fighting etc that take up a lot of time, therefore, I wouldn't go below 20 minutes mat...
