Consolidation of players, and teams.

With the league smaller then it used to be, I feel the need for change. And maybe it means a loss of sentiment and status for some. We aren't who we used to be, and it's a new league basically. So here are my thoughts. Remove some teams that are just not active, or seem that they ever will be. That ...

Re: Options to make BZFlag popular

Yes. BZ is dying, and only a few have hope of recovery. Yet there really isn't much plan. So I'd move on to bigger and better things. :rip:

In Need of New Blood

Where is the League? I have been active for a week now... I have seen a lot of FM's with the same exact people. Are we pulling in new folks? What do we need to do to get some? Are we advertising? I just see a dying game. 2 times I have logged on early evening, and seen 1 person online in all BZ. Tha...

Re: What was attractive about this game?

The community is what pulled me in, and for a long time it kept me here. Bz had a rough patch, and a lot of players I knew and loved, left. Many due to silly arguments. What would bring me back? Graphics, and seeing a larger community back in the server list. Been on 2 times in the last 48hrs, and n...

You will not find me matching on Apoc! The map would be horrible without flags... It is way to big. And with flags... That'd be a rough one.

Re: Handheld button mapping

It looks great, only thought would be to swap Jump & Slow movement. As "B" is the lower button, and jump would be most used. :) That is all I have as far as techy-things-to-say.

Re: Enough

As a old player, I came in and everyone has something to say about someone else. I just figured I'd voice what people are quietly bickering about. Constitution - I chatted with Kierra for quite a bit since posting this. I like the idea, and what it could do for bzflag as far as new players, and such...

Leagues...

So, with so few players... How are we looking to keep leagues exciting? How can we attract new players to a 90's game? When is the update coming to BZ? I guess what I am getting at is this: If we want BZFlag to be around in a year... How are we achieving that? I will do what I can, and want to be a ...

Re: Issues.

I can kind of see where Gollum was coming from, but I wouldn't blame it on the server(s), just a certain small percentage of particularly vocal idiots, and with the decline of the overall number of BZFlag players, that percentage has gone up. There are definitely some complete douchebags in BZ, I'm...

Hey Gollum, don't try to push your "morals" onto everyone else. Just be content with the fact that we'll go to "your" hell someday. Not pushing morals on anyone Blast, just bringing up the fact that bzflag has become quite lax in the language department, and am not to sure if that is a "good" thing...
