Re: ELO implementation, half baked?

We're definitely considering a score reset but there are apparently some objections - if anyone has any I'd like to hear them, as we're probably going ahead with that soon.

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

Thought I would update you on how we're responding to stuff. ELO is out now - have a look here for details. It looks like ELO will be only on UK1 for the time being - if this causes a massive problem for people then please let me know. The 2-week time limit is coming imminently, along with the rest ...

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

-Musical Servers All I can say about that is that we're continuing to do our best with it, and we're sorry about the people who have been affected by it. FS has been way more popular than we expected, and this is simply one of the difficulties that comes with that. As I said, we're expediting the p...

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

Ian has responded to these issues here http://www.mode7games.com/blog/2011/09/07/new-update/ , so we will have a timeout for games and a new scoring system very soon. I do look at Wishlist and Essential Features and I'll continue to do so - the amount of additional features we can do is definitely l...

Re: A Plan for New Documentation?

Important to bear in mind that Icebrain isn't part of Mode 7 and is selling an unofficial guide to the game.

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

What's the deal with duplicates? I'm not sure what's currently happening there - I'll look into that for you. @Limavictor426 Thanks for this! Ian did say we were going to have a score reset at one point but this got pushed back due to more important issues with the servers. I will ask him about it ...

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

@Disparanoia Yep, I certainly think that abandoned games is an issue that needs to be addressed quickly and it's something that we have plans for. @Icebrain I'm glad you enjoyed my post, because you certainly haven't justified any of your hyperbole. I'm not interested in unfounded whining about imba...

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

Nobody wants to play a game that is impossible to beat and unfair. This is partly why me, limavictor426 and many, many others have stopped to play. I don't see how the game is currently either impossible to beat or unfair - that seems overly hyperbolic as the rest of your post is about scoring. If ...

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

@Icebrain I listened to all your suggestions and I'm actually currently implementing two of them - unify stuff across blog, Facebook and Twitter; respond to forum threads more frequently. If you want me to correct my perceived failures more readily, you're going to have to be more specific and try a...

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

Thanks - I really appreciate that.

I will admit that I don't think we've handled some of the community aspects right, though, so I'm here to talk more with everyone about that.

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

First off, I'd like to apologise for not communicating properly about this patch. We broke our own rule ("Don't announce something until it's nearly done; don't commit to a time unless you can hit it") with this - we'll try to stick to that in future. The reason for the delay of the patch isn't sole...
