Re: I'm vaccinated!

There is actually no evidence of increased venous thromboembolism in the population group post-vaccine.

Humans are excellent at drawing conclusions where there are none.

Re: Growing our presence on twitch.tv

Everyone has been very supportive and I appreciate all the kind words! I am glad people enjoy the streams/VODs. I am always open to suggestions and very grateful for any contributions (e.g. sinewavs awesome art for the youtube channel or Titanoboa's movie pack and voluntary moderation of the twitch ...

Re: Fortress pickup: Points advantage

I think this should be in servers rather than competitions.

Also there should be an option for keep things as they are surely?

Re: Ladle 122 - February 7th, 2021

Power Rankings We've not had any of these for a while so I thought I'd bring them back. I know historically these have been in a separate topic, but given that we only get a few posts in each topic I decided it may as well go in the ladle topic. So here are my power rankings for the upcoming ladle ...

Re: 2020's Arma

There have been multiple occasions where I have spoken to others in discord or in-game about how to improve armagetron and extend it's exposure to a wider audience to bolster player numbers. As always, the discussion raises several good ideas but also fizzles out as there is never much in the way of...

Re: Ladle 122 - February 7th, 2021

Following discussion on the ladle discord channel. Thanks to capone for his summary which is also pinned in the ladle channel: the issue of the length of ladle was raised. Potential solutions: include a round limit, reduce score limit/more points earned per round, include a hard time limit (for a ro...

Re: #pickup: KILL_ALL problems and solutions

As deso mentioned in discord, you cannot use include unless you are owner rank. One solution to this would be for people to set a few of their instant chats to the individual console commands included - obviously the more commands you include, the more instants people will have to use, so perhaps ju...

Re: Fort matchmaking (for pickup) and how it works

Can we manually add a new player (or multiple player IDs) to the armarankings for new players? For instance, can set a custom new GID (such as [email protected]) to a low rating and never have it change, or would we need to have a bunch of accounts ([email protected], [email protected] etc.) and then...

Re: Ladle 119 (1st November 2020)

We have basically had the exact same discussion about authorities for pickup games on the discord about 1-2 months ago. I think the consensus was to use some kind of external script to force new downloads of the auth files.

Re: Hi.

Hello, welcome back!

I don't think armagetron ever came on a CD, so I guess you saved it there yourself?

You can check which version of armagetron it is by clicking "About" in the main menu after loading up the game
