Put PL's Settings in Main

Recommended Posts

I'd love for the site to be up for when these settings go into main. I think that we should be posting winners on the site, since many, if not most, games will be long and hard-fought.

 

I never said anything to him about it, but I'd nominate a friend for it (you know who you are), if he'll do it. He's been getting very good with mambo lately, and I'm sure he can get a site up - at least something a little better than basic - very quick. At least something temporary.

everything is cool except being able to only carry one flag at a time, that part is lame.

Soo... you want to go back to having no flag game until one person decides to pick up all the flags and have everyone chase him/her? Then have the flags change hands 20 times before someone decides, "okay, now's a good time to win," and wins. Then, of course, everyone else feels cheated and complains and whines and leaves...

 

With one flag at a time you can't win alone. One person alone can't be the deciding factor in a game. You have to work with your team to keep flags safe, to get more flags, and you have to fight right to the end to win.

som, ray, WTF? This dissapoints me.

 

Rev.. I kinda agree with you. But pl explained the benefits out of this 1 flag carry thing, so lets see if it works out that way. And also what disadvantages it gives.

you could solve that by giving weasals anti back smile.gif

Since there is no shiprules, why not give spider and weasel anti again instead of the bombers. Good call tongue.gif

I like that the powerball is back, but how about getting rid of one of the goals? It's no fun if you can score at both of them. Just a thought.

new settings are cool but right now theyre trown in just like that, no1 even tried (except waldo) to host an event around them. I didnt play them yet b/c I didnt have time yet but from what ive seen nobody really knows whats going on. I understand that someone mentioned them in the news but hardly anyone reads that, so maybe its time to start doing things differently but then again I know that wont happen.

all preannounced on a website or even in the news or with arena messages 1 week before the launch?

its about timing not about making a fake large jp when nobody cares about points. Thats when SWZ went downhill even more, different points system and those fucking annoying jackpot boosters.

also, please get rid of the specials delay, i can understand the delay on bricks, or spiders or weasals, but not on every ship for every item.

-Rev

Honestly, I'm not sure how that delay got into the settings. It shouldn't be there... it's a mistake. Hopefully it'll get fixed soon smile.gif

I think the delays were in before instituting your settings, and were carried over into your settings.

Consider also, though, that as long as you're there, flagging, you'll rake up points that you can have fun with. So it's a win-win situation, anyway. Flagging fun - points fun. Jackpot fun is a rare bonus that you have to earn.

Reward points should be higher to reflect the reduced number of flags, and maybe even more. Something along the lines of:

 

2500points/flag/min x 4 flags x 60 mins = 600K.

 

I.e. holding on average HALF the flags for 1 hour will give you more than enough for a bomb/bullet upgrade. Thats about 2.5x what the reward system is now, but since we've reduced flags by almost a half, its not even that much.

 

In a way, these settings would be semi-mobile-semi-turf flagging, which would take away some of teh emphasis on winning and putting it to just being able to hold some flags, and as you said, the JP would be a rare bonus.

Mackie doesnt believe in Mambo or any CMS. He's rather go the good-old fashioned way and use notepad, but since he doesnt have time for notepad, nothing will be done =P

 

I can install and configure mambo for you if you're so inclined...let me know smile.gif

I had Mambo installed and then Ray told me he decided that he didn't want to use it after all. And then he flaked.

 

 

 

 

 

Again.

I dont want you to laugh. I want you to finish the site, or say that you can't finish it so that ppl can make other arrangements.
