1v1 with Superflags?

Post by ChaoticFangUp » Fri Apr 06, 2012 11:56 am

Could this be possible?
I am just lame at non-flagged maps! :D

Just thinking, share your ideas? :P
I could make the Map if yes, it would be small of course, because it is 1v1 hehe.

Adding superflags would make it unfair. Just practice more and get better at the game.

One idea behind the 1vs1 styles was/is to improve dodging skills for team-league matches. And as blast pointed out, it would be pretty unfair if you pick up one of the superflags which is more powerful on the classic/hix/fancy field because there are two players only.

Okay.
Gotcha.

Btw, blast, you say unfair, I say you have to have even More skill. You have to be energetic.

You think sitting on a box with a GM requires skill? I'm afraid you are gravely mistaken. If you had skill, you'd be able to hold your own WITHOUT powerups.

Ahh, the one that sits on a box is not on top of the list as I am.
You got it wrong, sorry.

The Flag maps are an unlimited hunt for extreme score!
"Campers", as they say to them, do not do well on that kind of maps.
Plus, they get killed extremely fast...

90 degree run closer and boom.
I prefer to move constantly with Laser or something like that on the ground.
I said it is ENERGETIC!!!

I think that you meant the map made by DW and you hosted. It is pathetic. Sorry, it just is. Castle Defence... not good. ;)

I am talking about adding super flags to a 1vs1 map. Though now that I think about it, there may not be jumping in the 1vs1 league. But regardless, if someone hangs on to laser and sits in a corner somewhere, how would that be fair?

The only way I can make this work out in my mind would be to use the flag give plugin so when you spawn you get the same flag as your opponent.
This could be used to add some variety like giving out cloaking, quick turn, narrow, tiny, etc. But this would be only for the fun factor and not trying to learn new skills.
Flags like laser, guided missle, shock wave, super bullet, etc. would just simply be too powerful make gameplay really lame. Or just so fun you would die laughing, which isn't good either....
I personally would really like a 1v1 server that would give out Blindness flags, I think this is really the only legit flag to have on a 1v1 server. (If you are trying to get better.)
Lag makes me miss all of the good stuff.

If you want to make a 1v1 server with super flags no one is stopping you. But the whole point of the 1v1 server we have is to see who is best without flags. Like a fist fight. Sure you may be able to shoot me with a gun, but say you have to fight me without a gun. Don't you want to be good at that too? Trust me, once the glitter and glam wears off of bzflag you'll find yourself at maps like HiX and Ducati. Either that or you'll quit bz. I've seen it 1000 times. We all have.

Sitting on a box with gm requires no skill. And you say energetic??? How can you be nimble and quick enough to dodge laser? Laser is infinte range and speed, so it would be extremely unfair. And as for flags like high speed. That is as well a major advantage. Most 1v1 is 2 or 3 shots, you can eaisly dodge that with high speed, same goes for the other flags. So my ending phrase is Pratice and you'll get better.
