Minotaur, should it get some nerfing?

This is going to be controversial, but should the Minotaur, aka the Omnitaur (not the Classic Mino) get some reduction on the Area of effect of the primary gun? You'd have to aim more accurately. Or alternatively make the damage weaker in the same area -- ie. direct hit is devastating 1600+, but as ...

HellBenders and their ilk..

So anyone else feel that HellHounds, King HellHounds and pretty much any Bender should have an easier time on hills? I feel like especially on the JY randomizers it sucks not to be able to get them up the hill -- I meant they are like badass 4x4 trucks, but can't climb the hills? I think a small twe...

Re: Titty Twister

I have it mirrored and nodes set up. I have to figure out why the monsters didn't mirror though, only one side has them. I want to leave them in but right now they are kind of brutal since they spawn inside near the core I've been slammed at work, but we've just hired a bunch so that should start to...

Re: I am Muted

Sounds like a mic issue. My Logitech G935 occasionally needs to be disconnected as it "loses" the mic. I have to unplug the headset from the computer and plug it back in. Can you test it out in Windows Recorder? If that doesn't work than its a hardware problem.... are you sure you didn't b...

Re: server tick rate

So today, its $436 a year for the game, forum,statsdb and redirect. 37 a month, hard to beat that...and doens't require much admin time on the server (they do it), take daily backups etc. Looking at hosting it ourselves like 10x that...

Re: statsdb on the fritz again

Mysql is natively supported by our hoster, meaning I don't have to install, manintain, upgrade or any of that nonsense. I think I've changed all the table definitions so we should be good.

Re: Team Balance

And stats like win rate, have to be computed outside of UT. The game itself doesn't keep track--so there'd be plenty to write... and leon would still be brutal in several vehicles. And the biggest flaw in the balancer is team play -- teams that work together and have a good mix win. Teams of all agg...

Re: server tick rate

If it was just a question of the cpu, its a no-brainer but we are hosted so up to the hosting company (same one that hosts DW and HoC). I don't think we've lost any players because of poor server performance, its usually pretty decent (aside from a few DDOS network attacks that impacted the game las...

Re: Seriously enyo, this admin shit is going to your head

Yes, I think you get the intent, we just don't want any players trying to rebalance teams (perhaps admins switching once in a while is fine.. I know Enyo and I have switched to losing teams multiple times to try to fix it). And we can whine, complain, bitch, trash talk all we want...as you mentioned...
