Re: Fix the scoring?

Disagree on balancing by win ratio or percentage, it's too simplistic of a metric. There are some good players that get shafted with crap teams more than others, so their win % is going to be lower. Example, pooty and McLovin both have a 44% win rate... but, no offense to McLovin, pooty is a strong...

Re: Fix the scoring?

It's not only important to charge a node, it's vital to charge the node while fighting off attackers until the node builds, even if you die in the process. Such sacrifice is a good measure of a real team player. Somewhere deep inside many players, I think, is a fear of their avatar dying, a remnant...

Re: How many maps/how long should the Map Rotation be?

Thanks, I think I just overestimate the fragility of the community, which probably would be the case if everyone played as sporadically as me.

Re: How many maps/how long should the Map Rotation be?

I may be counterproductive, but I stopped voting a few months ago. I felt really bad if I won the vote, but half the players leave since they hate that map. I justify it by utilizing the wisdom of the crowd. That being said that wisdom only works if people vote. I think a tiered/ranked voting (i.e. ...

Re: Who were your most loved/hated Omni players?

Hyden is probably the most prolific game chat spammer in the history of UT, while doubling as his team's official boat anchor. CEONSS can have him. Looking back, this is the reason I got to talking with him. I had to chat due to a combination of idiocy (tried plugging in my mic setup wrong, couldn'...

Re: Are you a rage-quitter?

I've meant to "sandbag" before (if you'd call it sandbagging when team has no nodes and low core), but I can't manage even when loss is inevitable (or do you think it's never inevitable? i.e. name it and claim it). It's Pavlovian, if I've joined I have to shoot stuff. Although I do screw a...

Re: Who were your most loved/hated Omni players?

Ah yes I remember Pastor and there was also JimmyTheDentist (who I believe wasn't really a dentist). They were on DW all the time back in the day. Ah yes JimmyTheDentist too, I remember. I started on DW, I liked the hitsounds since my ping was crap and it was the only way I could find the lead for ...

Re: 1st or 2nd person point-of-view?

Same as enyo. Does zoomed out 3rd person help anyone for manta runovers? I'm awful at those. Seriously, if the object would be circle around and avoid the players I would win. Also, 1st person railgun tank -> How I get the kills.

Re: Who were your most loved/hated Omni players?

The best and most vociferous player back when I started online in 2009 was PastorofMuppets. I haven't seen him in years, although I don't play everyday. He was always telling people to suck a bag of dicks. That was when my name was "Wyoming".
