Re: Big annoyance

To further add to this, when a new team is created it changes their previous rating. This is not that big of a matter as a whole, but it does offset how normal scoring would work. I think the reasons supplied are good enough, though.

Re: My first map: gm and laser sniping

Not bad, looks well thought through. A little open for my tastes, but still, I think you deserve a good rating for this one. ;)

Re: mini:HIX

Nice work, zaphod. I'm a little against the current settings. It makes it very difficult to climb pyramids and it feels like you have to really reach to make a jump to a block. Overall, however, it's got a really fun feel. I don't know if you remember or not, but I miniaturized some maps a while bac...

Re: BZFlag in ESL (Electronic Sports League)

I think, personally, linking to the official forums main page and the BZFlag home page would be good. This topic doesn't seem all that "official." :-D And sure, give them the game name while you're at it. :-P

Re: 1st official pillbox league pick-up contest!

I think the main reason the tournament "didn't work," even though I'm sure it would have if given a little more time, was the positioning. I know that personally I've had one event after another come up during the holidays and a few days after New Years. Perhaps we could consider reviving this a lit...

Re: Callsign Choosing

I picked mine while playing the ducati style servers back in the 1.x versions. Everybody was really good and I was new to ducati. So I became a "wannabe" in attempts to catch them in scores. :-) Perhaps an activity you're involved with? Favorite animals? Heh... secret agent names? :| Dunno, really. ...

Re: Language Spoiling The Experience

Well, if certain players enjoy the atmosphere at Planet M, that's entirely up to them. As mentioned, it is correct, server owners have the right to allow or disallow language and be lenient or very strict about it. As for this: People who have such a big problem with language are an overrepresented ...

Re: Language Spoiling The Experience

Aren't we being just a little self-righteous? As people have explained already, servers are privately run and owners can set rules as they please. Client-side filtering is probably your best option. What exactly makes you the type of player that the game "needs"? What puts you in a position to make...

Re: Help with map

On relatively open maps, small patches (or "forests") of pyramids are sometimes helpful. It helps to break up the monotony a bit when you're driving for long distances. Typically, there are a lot of tall, thin pyramids... or a few fat, short ones. I think that would help you a little bit, but you're...

Alright, people say Genocide makes people go after personal gain far too much, and detracts attention from capturing flags.

Re: BZFlag in ESL (Electronic Sports League)

I highly doubt that it would be easy to get involved in ESL, but it's worth a try I suppose, if the top-bz-peoples think it's a good idea. It would definitely bring more people to the game...

Re: Language Spoiling The Experience

It saddens me that all the effort, dedication, hard work and money put into bzflag and the servers is spoiled by the increasing use of bad language.

For what it's worth, I'd say a match in the month of January, and then another in July. The cycle continues. Every six months, we match! :-) In 2010, we'd have another Riker. Plus, we'd get one more this year. Similarly to what beanpole and slime said, I think if we made it every three or four month...
