Does BZflag ever get boring for anyone?

Post by (Dvn) » Fri May 12, 2006 8:41 pm

IM sorry guys, but bzflag just isnt my game anymore. i havent really even been on it for a long time. It was extremely fun earlier in life.

And it is an extremely good game (whoever made it)

Yes it does get a bit tiring to me (or this boring if you call it that). Then I stop playing BZ and go program, surf the web, watch t.v., or talk to the family.

it gets boring, so i tend to disappear for days on end till i run out of things to do... im trying to mix and match lately to keep it from getting boring. different servers in game, but also doing some coding out of the game to keep myself occupied

just about any game, if played too often, one can get tired of. I play less, and show on here more. just like any new video game or such.

it does get tiring.

here is a thing to try:
Find a different game that you like, and play that. every so often, come back and play BZFlag a bit. Youll see how much fun this game is after youve been away from it...

somedays it's "boring" some days it's crazy... but i'd say a big part of the game is the people that play it, and they never get boring ;)

i get tired of it from time to time, but its only short little things, like maybe for a couple hours. the only time i've ever been away from bzflag for any amount of time was in the beginning when i was a n00b and didn't know what i was doing. but i came back and its been 5 yrs and i'm still hooked.

it never gets boring for me. there are different game styles and lots of different cool maps. also having a few personal nemeses helps. nothing like pwning them, rubbing it in and having a good laugh. :twisted:

I'll never get sick of BZFlag! It's the most addictive game i've EVER played. Hopefully it goes on and on until the world comes to an end.

I do get bored of it sometimes , but this is only after i have been playing it for hours at a time.

Then , I find something else to do for a while , then when i come back it's fun for me again.

Dvn - perhaps it is getting boring to you because you don't play it too often?

I played it the last year, but then stopped for 3-4 month.
Now, i'm playing it again.

I'm not the person, who has the best score, but it's fun to play it.

Ive been on bzflag for maybe 3 years, and 'was' hooked. very hooked.

I actually got in trouble alot because i would sneak on at night. [12:00]
I knew a few passwords :wink: I would beg and beg to play it for a while, and then i got in trouble enough, that i could only play it every other day. :evil:

I dont know how long i have been playing, but the boring bug has bit me too. I think the servers are getting old to me... everybody has been staying on the same servers for a year now (rarely other servers get played on) and they are just getting old...
It would be nice if there was a random FFA map with 10 shots and no limits (and of course people that are willing to play on them).

I agree with nightmare. There should be servers that are newer types and people should play on different servers more often.

I love it now because at Lasermania I log on and get a good score! The reason I keep on playing is because I want to become as good as players like Slayer++ and Spitfire. I'll probably never get sick of BZFlag I reckon! :wink: 8)

I hope those 'adventure' style maps come again sometime - those always had new things added, and they never bored me :)
