It has been awhile!

Post by Legolas » Mon Apr 05, 2010 1:57 am

Hey everyone,
Most of you won't remember me because I have been out for almost 4 years now. I used to play on servers such as turkey, secretplace, ducati, and some badgerking at the end. I got bored in my dorm so I decided to pull out BZFlag again! It is good to see a lot of newer players on the game! Just a quick question: What servers would you recommend me playing? I'm not a huge fan of these laser sniping and GM maps, or servers with 20 shots. Any ideas?
It's good to be back, take it easy on me. Laptop and arrow keys= awful control of tank :wink:

Badgerking is still around and popular :)

most maps on bzbattleground.com - they focus mainly on skill and not camping type maps :)

turkey and secretplace is gone ( maybe a revivial is in order if anyone has the maps and configs ). I would be very willing to host them.

Join the leagues and welcome back :)

The style has definitely changed since you left, but there is still usually a mean game of rabbit over on FoxBurrow @ norang.

Elfie!! Good to see you back (and thank you for making me realize how old I'm getting :P )!

Badgerking is still around and has undergone some interesting changes since the last time you were around, though I wouldn't quite call it "popular" at the moment. Good changes. Interesting gameplay changes. Anyways, bk had several periods of server problems over the past two years and its hurt the map's numbers. I usually only see people playing there maybe once every week or two, but at least most of the usual suspects (badgerking, Swine, Green Manalishi, etc) are still hitting it and it does get the occasional unfamiliar face.

Also, I would second joevano's recommendation of FoxBurrow. It's a rather simple map with a few complex possibilities, good regulars, and it's not unknown for us to ocassionally turn flags off completely and just blindly bash it out.
And the lesson for tonight is:

Never underestimate the ability of a newb to expect instant success and cry "cheat!" when they don't get it. Don't hate the newb, just give them plenty of learning opportunities. ;)
