I'm posting this on behalf of Zongo (for the original conversation, check the May 25 #dub logs) : What I fear is that if the point system is adopted then the teams will only play 15 min matches and try to match as much as possible. Unless the suggestion to weight wins with respect to length of the g...

Cap Limit (proposed by Zongo)

I'm posting this on behalf of Zongo (for the original conversation, check the May 25 #dub logs) : Games should be declared won at 10 flags like in the 1vs1 league. I insist on this point - I felt very bad the first time that i lost 23-0 vs VBZ, and many new teams just quit the league coz they get pw...

I may repeat myself but DO NOT punish inactivity but reward activity. The point ladder i experienced on the 1vs1 league works fine imo.

One big problem with the ducati league is that it seems some kind of closed. Maybe all the people who play for a long time never made that experience, but i still remember that i started with both maps/leagues, GU and Ducati. And although im playing for quite a while now, i still feel like i'm a st...

Re: A question to the Council

2. At every ducati map, there are only 8 player slots. In crowded evenings, the map is always full, and the people are switching to gu or another server. Of course there are several ducati-style servers, but it would be better to have one big server with much people on it. I'd say the server should...

Seeing as how no one has yet commented on your ideas, mistake, I'll take a shot. Up to this point, I had been leaning toward [dmp]'s idea of an activity factor (rather than deleting points outright from a team). However, you've made an excellent case for a seasonal/cumulative ladder approach. activi...

This is a little radical, but would help introduce new blood ( :twisted: ) to the new league like meacan's Jr Team idea: Every established team (one that has been active for 6 months (for example) and/or has a rating of 1200 (for example) or higher) must recruit at least one "Jr. Player" (someone t...

Interesting ideas, dmp. I had heard the activity factor one before. It certainly has possibilities. I'd be interested in hearing more what others think about its usefulness. On the Jr. teams, I was actually thinking of something similar when reading tokimi's post. Your idea is much more thought out,...

Ideas from Ares

I had a long discussion with Ares a month or so ago. He had a number of suggestions, that I asked him to post here. He had already deleted his bzbb account, so I am posting them in his stead. "1) Team score should be cleared at least every year, if not more often 2) Non-active teams should loose poi...

There's the problem. 1.7 is an extremely old version of bzflag and there are no longer any servers that run that version. Try downloading 2.0.2. It's available on bzflag.org or sourceforge.net.

I'd appreciate it if you would all stop the personal attacks. If they continue, I will lock and/or delete this thread. There is also a full list of servers on this forum. Feel free to try those. And yes, you have to put in the full server name or ip and then separately, the port number.
