Re: PM Vote Trial for Ladle 57

Did the accused player, eggcozy, violate Rule #3 for players (Only Team Leaders may add, edit or remove their team from the Challenge Board)? No, Yes and they should receive (1 warning, 2 warnings, 3 warnings, banned from future ladles) my 2 cents Rules stated in this thread seem to make ladles less...

Eventually rules will need to be created and followed. Prior to seed rounds, we had the following from wiki: http://wiki.armagetronad.net/index.php/THE_SPOON team formation: "The deadline for forming a SPOON Team is March 31, 2006. When it is April 1, 2006 in all places on the globe, it will be too ...

Time to start planning the actual Spoon matches. Would be nice to get a list of some of the problems encountered, and come up with more hardened rules to avoid them in the future. Rules page on wiki? Main problem I saw was getting people to show up (for some teams), and determining if alternates wou...

I will play if I have time ... should find out in a day or two. I would vote for the idea to play for places as Lucifer pointed out. That will have the benefit of making it easier to determine who play who in future tournaments. I wouldn't vote for 5 fixed. Granted, you could just limit the players ...

So yeah, I think .7 is too low for cycle_rubber_delay. I would set back to 1. If 1 makes it too sensitive when you adjust "somewhat" close to a wall, a good way to adjust it is to play with cycle_rubber_delay_bonus. In a local game it seemed like .04-.05 was good (with cycle_rubber_delay at 1). The ...

So, changing cycle_rubber_delay from 1.0 to .7 will actually make it easier to 180 multiple times into a wall (I thought you had it at .5 from a statement earlier in this post). I just tested and was able to do 4 or 5. The trick is to pause just a bit when 180ing. If you db two rights at once, you d...

There was a day when cycle speed was 6. Not sure when it changed, but it change to 10 on swampland first ... I don't remember when it changed on shrunkland, but the first time I noticed it at 10 was after the upgrade. I would suggest a slightly higher value for cycle_rubber_delay (than .5)... when w...

Just wanted to say this server really is good, probably the best these days. The main thing that I like is that the rubber actually seems to control the closeness of grinds (or works) as opposed to pretty much all other servers except for shrunkland. The only thing that I would personaly change is t...

I just read your long history of Breakfast Luc ... not bad. Trust me, even if you made millions off of armagetron ... and happened to keep Breakfast on all server names, I wouldn't and don't think I even could stake claim to the "Breakfast" name (only "Breakfast of Champions" which in fact was stole...

My comments were directed at swampland, I think for some pretty good reasons ... cycle_delay, cycle_accel, cycle_speed all changed to a proportion that made the server not much better than those servers where you hit brakes to accelerate. I don't think those were changed in Hell. Granted it was stil...

I rode out the storm in Mandeville with my fam. We've been cleaning up and securing things the last few days, but living off of a generator is expensive. Plus, our generator can only handle so much, so washing clothes was a pain because the water pump and washing machine couldn't be run at once. Ele...
