Re: Rikers Cup with a twist

I was thinking a best of 3 of hix or a hix and babel best of 3. you could if you want to attract only those players who like jumping maps To attract the most players, you should offer a combination of hix, duc, (& 1 other pb, dupi, or babel) There are players that don't like hix and those that don'...

Re: Rikers Cup with a twist

I spoke to llrr about a similar tourney, but not call it Rikers. Rikers is the best of North America vs the best of Europe. It has a rich history of fun, challenging matches watching the skilled players of gu battle it out in 2-3 30 min matches. I recommend calling it something else (that is what ll...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

So, not only does the winning team gain points....you're going to sweeten the pot with elo gain depending on # of caps.

I would like to reiterate, that I don't agree with # of caps affecting elo gains

I do correct my statement above about 'motto'. Was with changing your nick that the rejoins were done.

Still disruptive to the players on the field.

What you did today on LU match server amounted to spamming...constantly rejoining to change your motto...."2in", "i can play 2in", "resting". ALL done during matches on allejo 5196 and was incredibly distracting to those of us playing! It is a simple concept to say : "2in" in obs for those there to ...

Re: New functionality/plug-in request: dynMotto

No offense....I fail to see the need for all this "functionality" It is incredibly redundant to what we have now and imnsho a waste of a dev's time that could be used in real improvements. What happened to the simpicity of typing "fm anyone?" or "2 in?" It doesn't take rocket science to figure if no...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

Why not just have active versus inactive players and a certain threshold for activity, like we have already for teams? Sometimes the best solution is the simplest solution. Also, I'd personally prefer that the margin of score difference in a match not be a factor in the rating. Continuing to play a...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

CTF *score* will be taken into account for ELO gain/loss. This means that 1-0 will not have the same effect as 10-0. However, a strong team winning 1-0 against a weaker will result in minimal ELO gain as opposed to winning 10-0. Note that this feature will be different to the current ELO system, wh...

I can live with or without the idea of [FF](as a clan) vs a mixed team and elo's being affected for all participating...individual and [FF] clan elo. Either one works for me. Same, but I think we would miss a great opportunity without that option. I just mean that it's not a hill I would die on. I ...

Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

@kierra I don't understand how you can be against team matching when not as many mates are online but be interested in just a player elo system in a team game format. There are many games when 1 player can earn their team points. And no it wouldn't be just 1 player doing all the work for matches. T...

I am all about options for playing style. Nothing wrong with having choices.

AHOD can be fun when players understand the goals and the team work involved. I'd welcome seeing it as part of the options in LU.
