Leagues Playoffs / new season playoffs
« on: December 08, 2018, 10:54 PM »
As it stands are we having top 4 from singles do playoffs. (new rules not determined yet so still with 1st seed picks first) and we could have clanner playoffs of sx vs tdc as both have over 50% and enough games?

Rolling 4secs :(

btw its not against rules to teleport behind a worm in bng. Its against rules to teleport within the illegal distance to a worm around a third of the scheme. Is this reflected in tus rules?

Off Topic / the check in thread

Hi WA community, the cliche post on forums as an inactive oldschool wormer thread is here.. probably for a second or third time from me (not as many as Y2JID :p)

My login is cached on this laptop so i can post as not sure what my PW and email is for the account. Read the thread about the WA community slowing down and I can confirm like nino and Fada said, life happens, and in that life i'm proud to say I became a father and my son is 8 months old. All my free time is spent at work or family. My hands are full and I wish i have more time to play WA but I just don't. Hope everyone is well.

Leagues Playoffs / clanner playoffs 46
« on: October 09, 2015, 05:38 PM »
has the league been coded so that you'll still have a final for clanner playoffs for season 46 1st vs 2nd?

and if only 3 clans make it, 1st gets a bye to final and 2nd vs 3rd?

TUS Discussion / season 44
« on: April 11, 2015, 11:17 AM »
i think a major bug has happened? season 44 did not start when season 43 finishes. We have playoff notifcations but theres no season infomation for season 44. games are still going into season 43 for classic and standings still show season 43 classic when we should be in season 44..

MI, Darkone, whats going on?  :o :o

Bug Report / streaks when a game has been deleted
« on: January 12, 2015, 07:22 PM »

Our streak for CKC isn't accurate due to the fake report p3 did which was removed. But this reset our streak, we should currently be on +11 but are on +9.

Leagues Complaints / [SOLVED] game #182747
« on: December 27, 2014, 08:07 PM »
Chelsea has reported a roper vs CKC which p3 didn't win. We were playing p3 in roper and had a lead around 250 hp vs them who were both close to dying in a couple of turns potentially. Chelsea then dropped.

We asked for rematch with handicaps and they refused so i reported the game [#182746] as a win for CKC.. Chelsea has then reported the same game as a win for them.

TUS Discussion / Experimental season result - bng

I quote from a year ago;

        What was wrong with doing full power shots in the first place?

    The way I saw BnG, it was a test of skills, who could handle the bazooka and grenade the best. Before notching, at least, this meant picking the right angle (estimation of a weapons' trajectory) as well as the right power to fire at (a sense of timing, when to release space). Notching has for the most part removed the latter part, which is a sad thing, if you ask me.

But full power shots existed before notching was even called notching (the term appeared roughly 10 years ago, give or take). And still today, in practice, players do as many full power shots that aren't notched as those that are. A lot of the time those "by feel" full power shots, in BnG as in other schemes, are quite impressive and satisfying to pull off (see my Showcase 4 submission), certainly something I would like to see more of in league BnG, not less. By making TestStuff mandatory, TUS isn't punishing notchers, you're targeting players who resort to full power shots more often than others. And I would argue that there's enough difference between the two to make this change look completely arbitrary, especially because it comes irreversibly coupled with the inability to aim straight up easily, which actually favours experienced notchers and completely ruins, for example, my approach to aiming.

It also strikes me as more than a little schizoid that on the one hand, TUS specifically allows notching and tells players to just get better if they want to be competitive, while on the other, you're happy to resort to these extreme measures* (the only rationale being that it'll make life harder for notchers) even at the cost of reducing the viable repertoire of shots available to all players, thus making the scheme more bland.

And as an aside, why is notching bad in BnG but okay in all other ground schemes?

* Yes, introducing a different, experimental set of game mechanics into the league because of a single scheme is extreme by WA standards. Like really really extreme.

I really agree with KRD here on ts in bng. I picked it this season after coming back to tus and found that chelsea and lukz were both calling me weird for wanting to use normal bng rules. The ts rule really screws with aimming and resetting your aim straight up, sometimes you want a 1 or 2 tap shot from straight up and almost impossible to achieve this as you can never aim up so stops alot of low wind shots.
Also the full power functionality is removed and like KRD says some players use this without notching and it not being cheap.

Its really disappoint after having been inactive and as a defaulter to see some of your favourite schemes dramatically changed.
I'll carry on picking my prefered older scheme types and if people accept them thats ok, but what bothers me is how in the playoffs we HAVE to use tus schemes which aren't great. How many bngs have been played in the last year and how many of them have ts in? Also its the wrong way to prevent notchers and like KRD says, your encouraging people to get as good as notchers by notching but then make a change like this.. If bng relaxed the rules on darksiding and what was considered 'cheap' it would be a good way to battle a notcher. As most notchers haven't learnt to use bounce shots that well which can be timed to explode on impact for example and then all you need is some cover.
For example the rule, as long as you have a shot each turn your hide is legal would be great in bng as a darksiding strategy to defeat notching.

ps. sorry for the poorly quoted text but didn't know how when its in another thread that is locked.

Leagues General / 2014 - a bad year for wa league games
« on: July 14, 2014, 11:18 PM »
The season information stats really show a drop in activity for tus league games, both singles and clanners.

I have more own reasons for not having as much time or desire to be on w:a but whats happening to the younger generation of players with more free time that would keep league activity high? That would make it more desirable to play if knew i could find a clanner.

I think the requirements for playoffs should really be considered because the amount of games to reach playoffs is too high for both singles and clanners for the current activity. If less games were required it would favour smaller clans or more inactive players to look for games as knew they'd have a better chance to make the playoffs IMO.

Look back to the first few seasons of tus when CF would clanner because they only needed 30 games. I'd suggest making limit around 40-50 games for clanners, 50-60 for single league and see if that encourages more people to play?
