Whats wrong with just sending a bzmail to the captain of the team of
interest? But as a team captain my self, I preffer to see my applicants
in the field before accepting them to the team..... And bzmail seems to
do the job well.....

Evaluation of the diference between 15-20-30 mn matches

Not being a very good coder my self, I never the less finaly got courious about what are the REAL effects of changing match times. I am sure those of us who try to be scientists, or more generally those of use who are courious about our world, would be vaguely interested in this. Questions: Do the t...

I would say it is best to have a slightly higher number for a cap limit, than to low. Because what if it is a close game, and some one reached a cap number, say 7, at 20 minutes into the game, but the other team is at 4. It is not hard to see that team gaining 3 caps in 10 minutes, or more! Better t...

First off, you seem to be creating a division of people here; league players, and every one else. I for one do not see the idea of using Jr. teams going very far at all. They are a good idea, and have merit. But based on all the discussions I have seen lately, that concept does not seem feasable or ...

A wiki may help, I am not sure though of its effectiveness. There is a HUGE difference between reading some ones ideas on how ducati should be played, and actually playing the game and learning that way. Regardless of the fact that every one of us learned by example in bz, it is almost impossible to...

Teams may run to the cap limit any way, if thats a sure fire way of ending the match quickly. Though I am not sure if counting the actually number of caps in a match in the ELO calculation is good, because that makes the difference between a 15 minute and a 30 minute match much more noticable. Unles...

I fail to see why the idea of variable match times is so far fetched. I did voice reservations with the idea of 15 minute matches, but there has been some very good arguments for the idea. Including the fact that a friend of mine, who would be active, cannot play unless shorter matches are alowed. T...

The plug in and settings are easy to code in, its the officialization of the idea that is what's important. As for the the openleague, they really are a separate entity from the ducati league.

Getting a message from the Council would be good, then maybe an auto one from the league for first match, fifth match, etc. Of course whats important is getting recognition from the other active teams in the league. It should be the job of each team captain to recognize the new teams. granted, not e...

At first, I had mixed feelings about what mistake was saying in the start of this topic. I do agree that we have allot more to do than just changing match lengths, but I am sure the council is working hard and this is an easy implementation. So I think taking what we can by doing little things betwe...

As QD just put it, I think that a change in player age really contributed to the change in league atmosphere. I came in just at the start of the flow of young people, and I do remember what it was like in the league back when I was in TAA. But now, we see a much younger crowd, with a very different ...

Thats a good idea CBG, but I see this being a problem because this qould need lots of active teams. Not sure if its implimentable yet, maybe when we get 30 active teams we can do it :)
