Re: BA Experimental discussion thread (download inside)

another advantage of the t2 mm is that it doesnt explode when a t2 scout plane crashes into it xD

Re: Balanced Annihilation 7.50

I guess you ignored the first part of my post where i recommended a buff for the vulcan. I read it, and have nothing more in reply than I've already said above. For the same price you can afford a t3 core factory and 15 karganeths and you can also use the base nanos for it. I know this. In most cas...

Re: Balanced Annihilation 7.50

@smoth: The counter to vulcans was always the emp launcher - which took a range nerf (and for very good unrelated reasons). @manmax: There is no need for a superweapon to end games. Just look at game times on the 'no lolcannon' host, which started about 2 weeks ago, presumably because someone, I kno...

Re: Balanced Annihilation 7.50

You're right, a skillless player should not win, that's why you should not let him being able to build vulcains.. You're missing the point. If team A has one more inactive/nub player than team B (a very likely event), then a relatively poor player on team B can sit at the back and tech while the ot...

Re: Balanced Annihilation 7.50

Just to put my two pence worth in - I'm a huge fan of 7.50, but it seems the reduction in emp launcher range (which was fairly recent?) has made vulcans as good as invincible. I realise they cost a shedload to make and run, but they require no skill to operate and virtually no skill to place/build e...

Re: Balanced Annihilation 7.50

7.50 rocks :)

Something ought to be done about absent autohost owners though. No reason in principle why the d/l system can't talk to the autohost and download new mods for it automatically.

Re: Balanced Annihilation 7.42

Nice changes :D I would have done much the same.

Although I don't understand why you reduced the missile speed of kargs. What does that change in practical terms?

Re: ideas....

Having player limits being dynamic helps a lot, I think - it used to be that way when we could vote to change the autolock. But now most autohosts use a preset mode which disables that option, I don't know why. As to fighting it in the lobby - I was hoping the people who manage the autohosts and cod...

Re: ideas....

I think that's marginally better than your other ideas...

But my point is not about getting rid of big games or 'dsd' bullshit' mostly full of poor players. It's just about reducing them back to 8v8.

Re: ideas....

I'm not complaining about people not joining a 4v4 game, I've got plenty of friends to play 4v4s with. And I can fill a game up by asking in #main quite well, thank you. :roll: You might also notice another post above where I said I was equally happy playing 4v4, 8v8, or 12v12. :roll: Perhaps you co...

Re: ideas....

yes he agreed with me. Maybe read the rest.... But once he's raised the teamsize and more people got in, the damage is already done and the game will be bigger and start later. Kicking at that point does little good (it's too slow) unless you're the host or have powers on the autohost to also quick...

Re: ideas....

you must be new here.
I've been here for 5 years, and have over 100,000 minutes played. I don't remember once seeing a player kicked for wanting to play a bigger game. Johannes seems to agree, above.

Re: ideas....

you COULD start when you have 4v4 but you don't it is an elective decision on the part of the players. Actually, no. It's not an 'elective decision' because everyone has to be ready. So if 7 people want a 4v4 and 1 wants an 8v8 you get an 8v8. Game size (in popular mods) is mostly determined by the...

Re: ideas....

This entire thread is fail and should be locked.

It comes down to you bitching about BA DSD.
If you'd bothered to read anything you'd have noticed that I was only suggesting replacing 12v12 with 8v8, and for reasons that had nothing to do with BA or dsd. :roll:

Re: ideas....

I think 5$ registration to play games more than some limit is an excellent idea. As long as the amount is small and theres plenty of opportunity to play without paying $5. For donations - it's not about how much people like spring, if it's free most people won't pay for it. Most people don't even re...

If you've been here 5 years you have a short memory.
Neither of my posts said anything about what happened in the past. I know how long it took... with the benefit of hindsight we ought to be able to think of something better.

Re: ideas....

In neither of the threads you link to is there a discussion of my point. The first link is about new players only, and I actually wanted to put my post into jj's thread. But (despite having played spring for 5 years) I hardly ever post on the forums and must have pressed a wrong button somewhere. An...
