Re: Leagues United New Format - Individual Rankings

I love you millennials...always looking for a participation trophy. Not only must you get elo points for wins but you see it as fitting to rub it in the losers face by gaining more advantage based on how many scores you get by capping? For the record, this would be the exact opposite of a participa...

Re: Consolidation of players, and teams.

automated deactivation of user accounts
Could have the opposite effect and make people less active. People who played months/years ago would be less likely to play because of the higher barrier to entry.

Re: Ducati Mini Map

# How do we decide which maps are added - or removed? The more maps there are, the more difficult it becomes to settle for a map to play. # Who decides whether we add another map? Do we vote?

Individual ELO

I believe allejo is having League Overseer collect a bunch of data, and I was considering an idea. While a countdown is running, we could track many different statistics and try to come up with an algorithm to have an objective individual ELO system. Some examples are flag captures, distance moved w...

Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

Who says every map has to be in favor of players who can react the fastest? Some maps, like ducati do not. And that is one reason why many like it exactly that way. Because this was the vision of ducati from the very start - and it continues to be the basis of ducati. With or without the cap, ducat...

Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

Right now on Ducati your preferred settings are thrown out the window and your reaction time just comes into play, and what we see happens is you die a lot easier on it. This has everything to due with good hardware or amplified mouse settings. You state you are using a lower dpi mouse and are usin...

Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

I vehemently disagree with any argument based on tradition and 'this is how things are, so we should keep them that way.' There are a great many things that are tradition, but aren't optimal. It's a lazy argument and instead we should be discussing the merits of no acceleration limit vs. acceleratio...

Ducati Acceleration Limit

Now that we're transitioning to Leagues United, we can reopen the debate/discussion regarding whether there should be an acceleration limit on ducati maps. An acceleration limit was added around 05 and it's been there ever since. For reference, hix has never had an acceleration limit. If you've felt...

Re: BZFlag 2.4.4 Release Candidate 1

Solid work, blast et al. One question about this: Unfortunately the list server has no concept of how long someone has been on a server, nor does it even track who is on a server. It only has snapshots of "this is how many players the server has". It's something I would certainly like to fix in futu...

Re: Riker's future

Yeah, I considered the 1-2-2-2 "snake" draft like you would in a fantasy league, but with only two teams, it takes out the drafter anxiety of "if I take this guy and not this one, will that one be available next time I pick or will he take him?" That was slightly convoluted, but hope you understood ...

Honestly, the sign-up thing can be a lot easier; can make a little doc and people can say either in person or online and just consolidate the two lists.

I'm not too familiar with The Silly Cup, but my understanding is it was catered more towards newer players and those who wouldn't be on the rosters for a Riker/Chesval event.

Well, based on allllll of the responses I've gotten about who wants to be a captain (/sarcasm) and what I've heard from quite a few players, it seems there isn't much interest to play in this Riker Cup.
