The idea is good, even if it requires that the list server can assign a location to a given IP address (or that server owners have to specify the server's location...). If the region information should be sent with the normal server list (which would make it incompatible with the current one) or in ...

@Admirarch: The leagues you listed are (together with the 1vs1 League) the most active ones. Don't forget that there are at least as many other league sites around which have only a few official matches at all. I would say that unity and centralization is probably what is most important. Do you mean...

You are right, it would be useful for players (league members) to implement some league categorization in the client. It's also correct that someone will have to spend a lot of time to program this. But before, someone has to think through the whole concept. The biggest problem will be to find some ...

Re: sever list

In my eyes, hidden match servers are a good idea. Maybe it would be better if the dub servers would be appear in the server list for registered ducati members (as the TLZ's ducati match server), but this is not a must, because they are well known. ...

I have to agree with Comsol. Well, images have the advantage that they (usually) have the same look in any browser (except of text based browsers) and you can give them a really cool design.

That's a good question. When there is the possibility to change the length of matches, only the min. or max. time should be given. It doesn't really matter if it's allowed to play 15, 16, 17,..., 29, 30 minutes. As long as a 15min match has the same weighting as a 30min match, I don't see a reason w...

Hm...shorter match times can be interesting for some ppl...however...I'ld suggest that a team gets (or loses) only as many % of the points as long they played
30min > 100%
20min > 67%
15min > 50%

The more (time) you invest the more you get (or lose). :o)
