Re: A new matching variant for GU league

This is not a bad Idea but I believe it would be much less complicated to... instead of doing this, start up the funleague again. that would save time and would be less confusing. and if you don't want to be apart of it you don't have to. I actually proposed bringing back the fun match league 4 yea...

Re: public server

IIRC, there was a public hix server with super flags that a player could only pick up if their score was negative? Or something like that..is that the server you are thinking of? I also remember my favorite hix variation, brad's hix rabbit chase. That was also a good server for hix newbs to learn on...

Re: A new matching variant for GU league

Maybe some players have not noticed it yet, but gu league and leagues in general are on the verge of extinction. It is true that there are matches played, sometims many matches. But look who plays them: just a few, heavy playing players keep the regular teams afloat. This guy, zac, without him, Fir...

Re: A new matching variant for GU league

I understand now, this is a measure to attempt to allow teams with maybe two players online and looking for a match to actually get a match. It's a great idea in theory, but you really have to think harder about the ELO effects for the ladder. 1. Including these two new teams in the ladder like two ...

Re: A new matching variant for GU league

I disagree for a few main reasons: 1. I personally, and I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one, would feel absolutely no loyalty to this automatically assigned team. I would care less if my team A has a bit better score than team B. Matching with these teams would just be a more confusing fun match. 2....

Re: Nice jumps for reaching the top side (7,5 MiB)

That jump becomes easy when you turn "Energy Saver" to ON in your "Options->Display Settings". As far as I know it is impossible with normal settings. Playing with this setting is very annoying, so I'm always suspicious of players that make this jump during a match without having an opportunity to ...

Re: language filter

The language filter settings are specified by the GU admins for all official servers to use. Sometimes there is a delay in updating server settings so there are occasional inconsistencies. We also generally recognize the right of server owners to implement their own additional restrictions (their o...

Re: language filter

The league does not own the server, the owner is offering a game instance with a specific set of settings for league members to use. Those league settings only specify gameplay setup not social setup (ban lists, chat, etc..) the rest is left to the server owner. Understood. However, GU League admin...

Re: language filter

server owners can setup the servers they run however they wish. Obviously. But without feedback they wouldn't know what's working and what isn't to keep players coming back to their servers. Also, keep in mind these are league servers, not public servers, so generally what is implemented on one is ...

Re: Please Read

The admins police the players; who polices the admins? This is a very touchy topic, so I'll try to do it without offending anyone. That's not my goal at all. People who are in charge need to result to judgments a lot. For example, if the speed limit is 70, and a police officer sees someone going 71,...

Re: 20 minute matches? Your feedback please

I agree with Frank after reading his post. Just modify the rules to allow 30 minute matches to be entered at 20 minutes if and only if:

-team scores are a difference of 5-6+
and
-all participating players agree

No new plugin or rating system would be needed.

Re: 20 minute matches? Your feedback please

If it is already decided to go through with allowing 20 minute matches, then yes, those matches should be worth less points (and activity rating if that is possible). I think this because I'd prefer not to see the GU league go down the road the ducati league did and having almost all the matches pl...

Re: Problem playing BZFlag on small screens

It would be nice to at least have available as an option. I don't see the harm in having a full screen radar, and as OR said it wouldn't be hard to code. Might as well make some people happy and implement it. :)
