Re: New Title Screen!? and other cool stuff

How about "Game Types With Team Play". It goes on to show a team based game type anyways, so that fits. It still implies single player modes.

I too reacted kind of like Z-Man at the awkward wording. I think the smaller the adjustment to fix it, the better. Because the text overall is really on point.

Re: New Title Screen!? and other cool stuff

It's really, really good. I'm happy with how you represented fortress - someone like me would be intrigued enough by it to feel like the game is worth a try. I don't think the music is a perfect fit. It's too 'in your face'. Wish I could be more constructive on that. My name is in it (at the server ...

Thanks Deso for setting up, Z-Man for recording, and Z-Man, Agility and Nelg for donating servers!

A tiebreaker game would be very exciting though! I would personally enjoy waiting / watching that extra match,
Agreed!

Re: Ladle 115 (July 5th)

Round robin could be fun, as last time I was bummed not to get to play against TBD which would've been a fun match. Round robin AND semis+finals would be overkill. Round robin should replace semifinals if we add it; the top 2 teams play each other in a final. That'd still lengthen the ladle by a lit...

Re: monthly TST 4 (June 14th 2020)

I am not going to keep hosting TST. However, tst is very popular in pickup mode & it would be cool if the series continued. I will do my best in this post to make it easy to continue hosting the monthly TSTs on the 2nd Sunday of the month. There's so much potential for growth. I think it's ideal to ...

Re: Donations

No more max_clients than actual player slots. Gaaah! Haha! Forgot you love hanging out in spec. I could be fine with +1 spec slot by default, because (when Nelg isn't hogging it) it kinda makes sense to wait if you're the first in line, it's when there's 3+ specs that potential other games are bein...

Re: Donations

Here is an idea: How about a Patreon account for Armagetron? Does anyone use Patreon? I would gladly add this game to the other projects I support. If the monthly income is sufficient, the lead team (Z-Man, Tank, Lucifer) could "hire" someone to manage official dedicated servers using the budget. W...

Re: Reconsider adding an upvote system

Well, see, no ... all registered should get to leave a thanks , I just meant we shouldn't be keeping scores if we can avoid it. Seeing who thanked you for your post is enough; having a total thanks counter is kind of optional I guess, but having posts rated based on how many thanks it gets relative ...

Re: Reconsider adding an upvote system

If there's a way to turn off ratings, then that's perfect.

We don't need a competition type thing, or a reason for people to hoard "thanks". I.e. I don't think we would want a "thanks" counter on people's profiles.

Re: Donations

I guess it's gonna be about hosting servers, then. The sumo community is starting to notice that dedicated servers are performing more consistently than the VPS's we've been relying on lately. And even though a dedi can be afforded by a single enthusiast ... the cost adds up over time, for sure. Per...

Re: monthly TST 4 (June 14th 2020)

Brackets have been made! 11 teams signed up for this one. Screenshot_461.png Pay close attention to which team goes where. 3 teams advance from the opening rounds with 4 teams, and 2 teams advance from the one with 3 reams. The exact same design as last month's, because it's the exact same number of...

Reconsider adding an upvote system

I remember this being mentioned as an idea every now and then, back when this forum was more active. It was always shot down, in my opinion with very good reason, because there was always the risk of turning some important discussion threads into popularity contests rather than a place for legitimat...

Re: Ladle 114 (June 7th)

PS. Ladle 22 a.k.a Bowl 1 was Twi¦×¦ted ¦×¦ats' first ladle after the merge; in Ladle 21 they were still playing as ¦×¦ and Twisted Rats.
