Re: Fortress-For-All - Discussion

I would argue that the order in the final round could be even more important than the first round depending on the player pool. An inexperienced player has the potential to do more harm than an all-star can make up for. But the proposed picking order takes that into account about as good as can be e...

Re: Fortress-For-All - Discussion

That is all understandable. The picking order is a good improvement. One thing that the "average pick" doesn't show is that the variance in skill is much higher at the top and bottom of the list, so that new order helps even the teams out more than it may seem.

Re: Fortress-For-All - Discussion

I understand where you are going with this, but that draft order isn't entirely fair. The team with first pick not only gets the best player in the draft, but they also get to avoid picking the bottom 11 players in the draft since they get first pick in the last round as well. Try letting them get f...

Re: DF Throwdown

I would actually consider playing this if it were forced physics. Otherwise, I don't have the "skill" to even play legally. xD

Re: Fortress-For-All - Discussion

Looks great! If we are debating captains vs randomly selected teams, can we consider a third option? Form a "committee" of 1-3 unbiased, knowledgeable players and let them choose and balance all the teams the day of the tournament. To avoid bias, these should be people that don't want to play in the...

I have received so many disappointed messages in regards to this. I suppose I can keep up one sumobar and run one Ladle server until someone else steps in. The pickup server will have to go for sure though; that one is killing me.

Re: Ladle 67

Just a heads up - I am getting out of the hosting business so after this Ladle my Ladle and pickup servers will go down. Hopefully this is enough time for someone else to step in.

Re: Ladle: Global Moderators

Looks good. I can remember a couple of occasions in which I was asked to help moderate non-rZ Ladle servers and could not.

Re: Pickup Channel for Public Games

I don't see a problem with promoting pickup in public servers. I encourage it in mine. That is how casual players learn about pickup.

I'll consider putting a larger capacity fortress server up.

Re: ..D.o.g.f.i.g.h.t..

Many of your loose servers don't even have rules listed anywhere. When I first started playing a lot, it took me several trips to those servers to figure out why people were getting pissed off at me. I didn't even know to ask what rules I was breaking because I didn't realize there were any! It was ...
