Yeah I know it's just a conversation, and nobody is throwing insults or anything, but we're talking about someone else right in front of them without any evidence one way or another so, tbh I feel like i'm being pretty rude for no valid reason so i'm just gonna stop.

Sorry.

Your reasons were valid Komodo, it is who you are and that's a reason enough. I did latch on a little, but I was talking in general terms when it came to alias, not specifically and necessary about Illusion, but everything else and in between.

So what is there to learn from all of this? Not to jump the buttons, and latch on.

It's all good, I'm not expecting people to agree all the time. We're just having a civilized conversation, are we?

Facing the past like a man? If e.g the past is long and forgotten, then there isn't a need to dig it up. Why would someone come back to Worms with a different name and say ''Yo, I used to be like this and that.'' I don't see the point of it, unless it's been eating that person alive. It is just better to start fresh.

Of course people do alias for malice intent, but these people CAN change too. So judging by your opinion and resentment Komodo, I feel like you've been a victim of many alias and their sinister intent. I've met a few alias myself, so I get how it can sting. Nowadays I usually don't care much if people alias or not, it is their business and I am sure there's a reason why they hide. Some just have a hard time fitting in and wants to try again, but sadly it can be at cost of others too.

Illusion dude seems legit, and I don't want to focus too much energy on second guessing him. He seems cool, we played a few zar last night. All was sweet and good. So if he turns out to be e.g Biscuit, who cares, unless he goes psycho mode again.

There's nothing wrong hiding from the past. The past can be a fuel of negativity that can drive you down, but also a tool to become different version of yourself. What version of yourself is up for you to decide, and if you try to give effort to be better, it shouldn't go unnoticed. People shouldn't add blame to one's failure but instead try to help and review where the faults were made. Communication is key for better understanding.

Why would anyone under alias with a bad past reveal themselves? I think it is irrelevant, because it can bring up many bad memories, and people don't often like this sort of negativity. The past should only be told to someone you fully trust, and if that person likes this new and improved version of you, then you have succeeded in becoming a better self. So in the end, it shouldn't be viewed as a disguise, but a transformation.

Has there been anyone on Worms history to undergo multiple alias?

Komodo, you seem to have some trust issues, and I understand if it is about alias. I can understand the appeal of using an alias. It can be fun and exciting to see people's reaction. All in all it can just be a guilty pleasure of sort. It shouldn't be taken so serious.

I've just made a discovery.
You don't need wkFrontendFix or any other module. The solution to this problem has existed in the game since the 3.7.0.0 release (but was not exposed to the user: it was added in an internal version and only left as a registry option later).

All you need to do to fix the white frontend after minimizing is to apply this reg file (may not be present in your Tweaks folder):

Enjoy I guess, while 3.8.0 is not out yet.

Thank you for helping us. This is so much better now. Cheers.

The question still remains: Is it okay to use an alias to bring activity to a league?

I'm just skeptical, and it's not far fetched that someone who needs attention to enjoy a game would research people who used to play 20 years ago and impersonate them.

It's happened many times before and will probably happen many times again, funny thing is it's probably the same few people doing it  :D

You can't even really hold that much evidence against someone from that long ago, people change drastically in that timeframe, behaviour, location, language.

You would think someone who hasn't played a game for 15+ years would usually look really rusty as well.

I could be wrong, but I ain't buying it, it sucks and feels lame tbh, but I just don't trust this kind of thing anymore after all the people who have faked it over the years.

But, at least it creates activity I guess...

So let me get this right.... People that alias, creates activity to the league, is a good thing?

It is like saying... People that cheats, brings activity to the league. Is that a good thing too?

And what? We are supposed to accept this? Well according to you, we could.

Why do people alias? Fun? Attention? Trouble?

Have you aliased?

He's from w2

Funny how random good players that pop out of nowhere are always from w2 lol.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

That's a long ''Hmm''. Do you hmm that long in real life & much at all?

WA community is small, so I think it can be reasonable to assume that people we have never seen might be a potential alias. A bit of a unfortunate affair. But now that I think of it, in Illusion's case, it seems like he's from the old Worms 2 clan TMNR The Mutant Ninja Ropers. The leader (Or one of the members of this clan), came up with a script for Worms 2 that allowed players to exceed the numbers of rope swings, so that the player could have infinite taps. A pretty cool idea of its time and an achievement of the roping evolution. I did play with one of the members sometime ago, he seemed like a chill guy, we had fun, unfortunately I forgot his name.

So who is this guy that appeared out of nowhere then?
Someone who insulted zar. Other than that, it could be very suspicious.

Tech Support / Re: Banned from Wormnet by DroneBL
« on: January 10, 2019, 11:17 PM »
Hi everyone, nice to see you all!

I'm trying to get back to Worms, but can't even log on Wormnet, I just recieve a warning about being my IP banned by a service called DroneBL.

I asked a lot of times to delisting and tried to send an email but havent gotten any "gtfo" from admins.

Sounds like a kind of service abuse.

Any way to fix it and take my good worm days back?

Use VPN, e.g Proton VPN or Express VPN.

As a biased 'classic' old schooler i don't think (would love to be wrong) the 3.8 patch will return the glory league days of wa.

I'm affraid the only way to bring some life into classic WA would be official, properly organised ingame ranking system, tournaments and all that (among other things) happening within ingame menus, so basically the 4.0 rework we dream of, with good publicity on top of that. It's not like old farts will start comming back chasing past when they only grow older, so this game needs new generations if it wants to stay active that way for some more time.

A dream option for me is mirrored wind, would finally make BnG the perfect artillery scheme. 

I disagree. That's clean reproducibility. If anything, a system that would generate 10 winds and then mirror them shuffled between players without that mirrored repetition of the same shot after shot would make more sense when it comes to fairness and not taking away that element of suprise.

This is what I've been saying before. Veteran players often relies on their past & nostalgia to find a comforting foothold in today's WA. Despite being an old school myself of the early-mid 2000, I am able to adapt in the modern WA society. I am sure that this new update will generate a temporal influx of new, existing and old players. Perhaps a lot of them will find a reason to stay. Unfortunately if you want to be competitive, you need to rely on external services like The Ultimate Site, this can be off putting for some, and this alone divides the player base. We are already witnessing it, a small inactive league with the regular cynics with the inability to change over time and only will recognize those with high ranks, while the rest in WA are committed to funners. Of course this my own hypothesis and experience. A built in league system in WA could alleviate the gap between players.

When it comes to the mirrored wind, it is a novel idea, nice option to have, but I think in the end for me, I also like the element of surprise.
I'm guessing a lot of the current schemes could use a little tweaking and updating. I think the entirety of WA community should be involved with these sort of things. It would be very egotistical for a group of people to decide how popular main schemes should be shaped & played. Then again, some could argue ''Well Kradie, if you let n00bs and non-competitive players vote and give their ideas, it could break the existing schemes completely! Imagine Donkeys in Intermediate!'' Sure, if such argument are to be made, I would say; Yeah sure I get it, and that is why we need a proper voting template for people to follow. Such template would be shaped on popular opinions and ideas suggested by anyone.
Then again, maybe none of this is necessary, and perhaps all existing schemes are fine as they are. Though, I guess most of us agrees that TTRR needs zero wind...

why don't you pick zar roper as classic games? classic has barely had any games since new season started.
Most people from the league are more inclined to follow the league setup & rules. So I don't feel comfortable enough to ask for a replacement scheme because of that. It is like asking for RR instead of TTRR. The only way to fix this, is to replace an existing scheme with Zar, or implement Zar in a league. Or just let Zar have another TRL season. A poll could help, but then again it could also be seen as unfair to the scheme due to personal bias & opinions. That alone is disconcerting to me.

Yeah sure Kradie. We all know Dibz looooves to browse tus forums, finding this long lost topic and asking zar back. Absolutely true 100%.
Super popular scheme with undeniable and growing interest from outstanding players like some zippo, luishero and micro. And of course some players who don't have any other choice but to play zar if they want a league game.

I could make up my own scheme, ask some buddies to play it and get more played games.

Maybe keep begging and zar will be heard. Who is next to praise great zar

I am surprised to see people exercise such unwarranted attitude, instead of being productive. Embrace the possibilities that Zar can provide, new blood and more activity to tus, and the league it offers. Why would anyone be against this? Perhaps this isn't about Zar, but more about me? Though that is just pure speculation. Regardless, yes you could make your own scheme and have your buddies play it, heck you can even make your own community and get 40 people to sign up too.I am sure people would be thrilled about it.

There are other existing communities & schemes with lower activity, so how is that justified? Zar is more recognized.

Dibz is here on his own free will, I didn't pull his strings at all. In fact, I am surprised that he even bothered to post here.

And i remember how this Shit`Kradie and his slave spleen9882 made faked screenshot on signatures about me, these people will never change.
I never did such thing, why would I? It wouldn't serve me.
You are big bag of lie, Kradie. At least have a balls to answer for your actions, and do not hide them.

I have nothing to hide, I wouldn't benefit for whatever you are accusing me for, it is ridiculous.  You have been going on with this for years now, you need and should calm down about this. I have no reasons to do it. Why would I?
Ask yourself, why would you? Or maybe my eyes tricked me?

It's the latter, Asbest. Please, stop obsessing.

Cheers.
