Re: New League Name

There are several very appropriately descriptive names posted for the new league without engaging in conflict with the one person hosting the forums, the listserver and who has gone to greater expense to provide those services with DDoS protection so that we can continue to play bzflag. I don't have...

Re: possible Public poll sample

-Retain bans for players removed from both leagues. Bans for players removed from one league but not the other will be discussed on a case-by-case basis. An interesting idea, but I think the result would actually be the opposite of what most people want; Snake12534 would be allowed back in, and the...

Re: Admin/cops:

I'm in favor of hrj's admin structure suggestion. I'm in favor of having a larger amount of cops as I feel they are necessary; they would be a great help with helping new players and what not. I'm in favor of allowing hidden cops/admins, it would allow admins to investigate particular players witho...

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.

Re: Consolidation

forums need a LIKE button.....because there is a lot of truth to what fig said!!!

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

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

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.
