Re: A defense of a defense

There's plenty of proof ... There's also two routes I can take with it, one that I primarily do in pickup ... The other route I do more in ladle where I keep the same pattern without extra bumps, slowly hiding more as the round progresses ... Yeah I was talking strictly about ladle, and post-110 es...

Re: A defense of a defense

Nanu's bottle is very good. There's no way to centre attack and survive the triple back at the end, which is possible with most quicker bottles. The dents in the middle are significant against any attempts to cut, especially lackattacks. The setup is much more flexible than a step def in terms of ex...

I'd just like to say that the way we've ben handling things since I felt a need to start this thread has been better than I expected. It seems that we're working together to accomodate the newbies in a better way and, well, let's just hope they keep trickliing in.

Re: Armagetron ON Steam (2019) with steam direct

Median play time: 7 minutes. That means 50% of people who actually started the game made it past 7 minutes. I can't say I'm too surprised. I wanted an "authentic noob experience" when I got the steam client, and it put me in a local game 1v1 with a bot. Using z and x as turn keys, arrows to glance,...

Re: Seriously

Thanks for your input. I very much agree that we should look back on what worked the first time the fort community grew. I really think that an M-Fort server might be best for this. We do have RetroCycles MegaFortress, US and EU both. Whenever we find ourselves getting a game going, a few vocal and ...

I know some of the community would prefer to keep pickups strictly experienced players
That's absolutely ridiculous. Where do we draw the line then? Because some of the players who started in 2012 are still pretty bad.

Seriously

We finally have our long-awaited steam release. For those of us who were playing back in January/February, back when there were like 9 regulars, steam was but a pipe dream and something we could only fantasize about. Then came the pandemic, and with it a relatively large amount of returning players ...

Re: What Size T-Shirt Do You Wear?

That green one is speaking to me! Slap it onto a white tee and I'll buy it. All of this is really awesome. Btw, I still have my black tee with the white glow-in-the-dark print from way back when. The glowy part of it is corny but in daylight it's a high quality shirt still! If any of you guys are on...

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.
