Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

Where your cursor is on your screen should be directly proportional to how fast your tank is moving. This is by definition not the case with acceleration limits. In my oppinion it is not quite as easy as that. The problem with this game is that movement and aim are bound to the same control. In mos...

Re: Ducati Acceleration Limit

As the whole topic is new to me this was an interesting read. I have no particular oppinion on the matter since I never even noticed the difference btw. ducati and hix settings. The topic itself got me started thinking though. I never liked the fact that there are settings missing in the options men...

Re: Leagues United, where are you?

The site worked well for me (using firefox if that is useful information ;) I merely disliked some of the design decisions such as the huge ingame graphic of that ugly tank at the very top of the starting page, but that's just my (subjective) preference. I would like to add that I find it amazing, t...

Re: What was attractive about this game?

Re: What was attractive about this game?

Ok, I just wrote a novel for this thread and accidentally deleted everything :) Here is the tl;dr: 1. The game won me over with it's mechanics( ricos , shotspeed variation, superflags) 2. I stayed for the community (in game chat) and the league . 3. I did not like how unintuitive the menue is (serve...

Re: Demo Site and Data Merging Process

I really like the clean/clear look of the site. It is really nice that each team's profile picture is displayed in the ladder and match statistics. I had no issues checking team pages, player profiles and match history. At the same time, I did not check the old gu and duc sites too often lately, so ...

Re: Ruling admins

This discussion is still a bit obscure to me. Many of those who have been suggested as admins did not make clear yet whether they are willing to fill the position. While I understand that this decision is an important one and shouldn't be take lightly I think that it is important for us to make prog...

We are quite off-topic by now, aren't we? Maybe we should rename this thread "How to increase activity".

Re: Concept Idea for activity

The simple solution to this is to penalize teams for inactivity, which can be done in several ways including: 1. reset all team scores at the beginning of each season (perhaps keeping a history of previous season final scores) 2. only count recent match results in team scores 3. gradually lower the...

Re: Concept Idea for activity

If we ever want to implement this idea with the goal to increase the number of official matches played we will have to allow RED vs FF matches. I am aware that it will be difficult to evaluate points for such.matches And im not even sure it is possible. On the other hand i am sure that this option w...

Re: Concept Idea for activity

I like the idea. In opposition to figurine I think that the teams should be assigned automatically via player score each 3 or 6 months. It would also help if the team one is currently assigned to appeared in the email string of a player (same as the real team) ie. : +Monster [Beer - RED] Furthermore...

people should know that if they play this game and they want to compete in a league, this is where they do it. Constitution makes an important point.

Re: Special events

I dont like the idea of seasons... But special events are always welcome! I dont think htf should be an event that counts towards the team score because it has nothing to do with teamplay. Also i think there should be events you have to qualify for during the usual matches. Be within the best 10%/2...

Re: New Maps

I think for officials there should be a restricted pool of few maps. As monster says. The necessity of learning all the tricks on one particular map should remain. This map pool should consist of 5 maps MAXIMUM (id rather see 3-4). - I agree on Max 5 and would like to add that I think that we shoul...

Let's start the process of choosing who the ruling admins (or council, or whatever they want to call themselves) will be.

Re: Language filter

I am in favour of a language filter on all league servers. If one cares enough to bypass it any offended player can take a screenshot and send it to an admin/cop who is in charge of such matters. Language violations should not be taken lightly imo.
