Re: "Essential" features

I'm posting this in essential features instead of Wishlist, because I see it as nearly required for the survival and even growth of the game. I know most of you have already heard of a game called Starcraft 2. I've seen the devs tweet about it even. I avoided playing it for a long time because I nev...

Re: Mid-game turn outcome change

I have hit this problem both in MP and SP games. I have narrowed it down to the use of Focus on enemy, and clear focus ignore. It seems that the 'clear focus/ignore' (CF/I) is 'forgotten' if it is the last thing a unit does in a turn. It is forgotten in the sense that it will not show up in the hist...

Re: THE MODE 7 HOTLINE

Thanks - good post, although perhaps a little bit minor, as I don't think this is going to destroy the game, but I'll let you off :D - we'll definitely look into that one. I think we'll need a bit of time to make sure ELO has "settled in" before changes like that happen, but I'll raise th...

Re: 2 weeks score list change?

Replying to my own topic based on IRC chat.


Looks like the ELO calcualtion on the "timeout games" was off. and after re-running the ELO calculation based on when the games were played (started?) things look a lot better.

2 weeks score list change?

So I'm not complaining that I'm now ranked at 11, but it feels wrong that I'm up there and wonderhero is ranked 234 with a greater than 4:1 ratio? I never saw the list you posted of games that would count towards the 2 weeks scores... could you repost that? I'm not saying I see anything wrong, I jus...

Re: Number of snipers in your team

I'll vote for one more, but I'll say that on some charge and secure maps with lots of open space I would not mind having all snipers. Disputed....ugh snipers are too slow. You don't send a weight lifter to do a sprinter's job. In my opinion, the sniper should move as fast as a MG, but have more pena...

I can accept that.... as long as I have the option to play 'friendly' matches that do not affect my rating.

and an accept/decline challenge option.

Re: Help with ideas: test server

I don't know the technology you are using, but is it possible to duplicate every set of orders that comes in? Essentially like running a database replication server with a different version you have all the same SQL statements but you get to see the different results based on the version. So if you ...

Re: ELO implementation, half baked?

Um this seems wrong to me. I just played a game against hab2000: scores before(or very close I rounded a little and now they are changed) TheRaven42:1405.1 hab2000:1195.8 Scores After TheRaven42 wins and should gain points...right?(match history does not have any other completed games at the time) T...

Re: ELO implementation, half baked?

oh, well if UK1 did not exist pre-release (I really don't know which servers did/did not) then I guess all my gripes about beta games have been answered.

now, can I have an ignore list on my friends page? I want to ignore people that are jerks.

Re: ELO implementation, half baked?

ok, roller coaster morning. first ELO sent me from 30 to 110 and now I'm at 26! And I'm still for removing the pre-release games. Beta games when the balance and maps and everything was buggy, just does not make sense. Honestly if its hard to come to a decision that works for everyone I'll jump on t...

Re: Mode7 you need to start supporting the game further.

@icebrain I don't have any history here, so maybe you will take this to heart. Yes this game could have been better at release. Calling it beta or alpha is like calling someones baby ugly, while it may(or may not) be true, it just makes them hate you. I believe you have a lot of knowledge about the ...

Re: ELO implementation, half baked?

TheRaven42: What would the difference be with losing the maximum number of points under Elo compared to losing -200 points under the old system? The difference is (if I understand ELO correctly): If a match is between players far apart, the high ranked player will only get a minimum of points for a...

Re: Mode7 you need to start supporting the game further.

my thoughts on the ELO drop in today. I thought it needed a separate thread. ymmv
