We could get some duels going on mm1fir or mm1cut, if you want, tailsmk4.  :lol:

All joking aside, we need a commitment to play some more game modes. Maybe we should consider nominating a day each week for specific game modes. DM, possession, team DM, CTF, and all that good stuff.

I should have more time to play now, since I'm done with my recent business. Still have to study a bit, but since I'm ahead of the game now, I could probably squeeze in some more games.

In other news: did 'ya miss me?

MM8BDM Discussion / Re: Stratergies you use for weapons in MM8BDM
« on: April 30, 2013, 08:36:39 PM »
In terms of strategies for weapon use, it depends on three things:

1) The map's geography
2) The weapon selection in a map
3) The opponents and what they are doing

In terms of the map, weapon use can depend on whether someone is occupying high ground or someone is on low ground. If you're on high ground (and I define high ground as a setup where an opponent cannot jump up to your platform in one jump), explosive weapons that affect a wide area (Drill Bomb, Ballade Cracker, etc) may be best. If on the low ground, try to get Ice Wave or Search Snake to attack the high ground more effectively. Also know that Super Arm flies in a parabolic arc, and could also be a good low ground weapon.

In terms of weapons, you cannot rely on a single favorite weapon, since no one weapon is available on any map (outside of the mega buster!). Were this the case, I'd just go after Atomic Fire on every map! It tends to be a good idea to develop a familiarity with 5-6 weapons, and then try to get those weapons while you're on a particular map. Develop familiarity with both fast weapons (Quick Boomerang, Yamato Spear, Ring Boomerang, etc.), power weapons (Super Arm, Atomic Fire, Ballade Cracker, etc.), and other weapons in between (Rain Flush, for instance).

In terms of opponent tactics, that can dictate how a person plays. When I use Atomic Fire, for instance, people generally run away from me. What they don't understand is that Atomic Fire takes time to prepare, and is vulnerable to close combat (Slash Claw, Flame Sword, etc.) or fast weapons. If a person wants to fight in close, it may be better to keep ones distance. If an opponent wants to keep their distance, then it may be better to engage the opponent at close range.

Also, traps may abound. If you're running away from an opponent, try doubling back to catch the opponent off guard. This is best done after falling off of cliffs or rounding corners. Any place where the opponent loses sight of you is a good place to try this.

The biggest dynamic in the game in opposing tactics is fast weapons vs. power weapons. If an opponent is using power weapons against you, getting in close is best. If using power weapons, keeping a moderate range may be a better bet. Geography can make all the difference here. Remember: fast weapons tend to be better close range tools, whereas power weapons typically need a moderate range to be effective.

Also, try to vary your tactics against opponents, so people have a harder time discerning what you do against them. A good player can be unpredictable in battle and disguise their tactics. Repeated use of the same tactic may not be effective, especially if opponents adjusts and compensates in the middle of battle.

Well, if you cut back on the constant spammage of ego-ridden binds and constantly talking about how you're better than everyone else, people might not be inclined to kick you. I'm not saying you should do it, I'm just listing it as a suggestion.

You know, normally I don't complain about much, but mistreatment is something I don't tolerate. I don't treat people badly, and their behavior has changed in recent days.
This is rather hypocritical, as blaming OJ and Bik openly for your problems and calling them out on it is something I would call mistreatment.
For one thing, I have toned back a lot of the sarcasm ego-binds lately. Not all of them, but most.

It's not hypocracy if the punishment doesn't fit the crime. I really don't treat people badly at all. I have fun, and I give credit where credit is due. What's wrong with that? Certainly not enough to get kicked every time OJ and Bik suddenly show up.

Oh look, another thread featuring whining about being kicked. Lovely.

But to be fair, your attitude when you play in servers is rather obnoxious so when you act the way you do it's to be expected.

You know, normally I don't complain about much, but mistreatment is something I don't tolerate. I don't treat people badly, and their behavior has changed in recent days.

Why that is, only they can say. But I can't say I deserve that kind of treatment. What have I done to merit that? Honestly?

I'm tired of dealing with that kind of treatment. I don't mind being ribbed a bit (because I do rib others occasionally, as well), but being denied the opportunity to play without cause is something that shouldn't be tolerated.

I've been repeatedly banned in servers because of players who have been aggressive in their attempts to annoy me. I've done nothing to merit being banned from the duel server, but it keeps happening. The people responsible for this are Bikdark and OJ (and there are folks, like Magnetman497, who can serve as witnesses of the events if needed).

I don't know what has come over you two, but your banning activities need to cease at once. If it does not, I will take up my issues with the Best Ever server moderators. Consider this your only warning on the matter.

Thank you, and have a nice day.

All right, I've had enough of waiting. The playoff in league two is cancelled, and the remainder of the season in Division 3 is cancelled.

Protoman wins Division 3 as champion, and is promoted.
Magnet Dood is runner-up in Division 3, and is promoted.

There will be no further promotions from division 2, although there may be people realigned due to the forfeits present in Division 1.

The results from all the leagues will be taken into consideration when scheduling Season 2. When that happens is up to the players; many have indicated to me that they want it done in the summer. If that is the case, then next month, I'll open a new thread concerning season 2, and see who wants to play in it.

As a future note, there will be no more playoffs when doing a league format like this. It's clear that people get tired of dueling after so many games, and there's no reason to place incentive on it. There may be further rule changes going into next season, pending player approval.

With that, I ask this thread be officially closed. Any further questions can be directed to me by private message. Thank you to all the players who tried to take this seriously. See you in season 2!

Dunno why this is, but the Best Ever duel servers seem to be bugged. You can't move around the maps. The server manager needs to reset the servers so they can be used again. Thanks.

Okay, I need to know if the people remaining in League 3 that haven't finished their games (Alice, Badass Bullymong, Commander Leo, Llamahombre, Thatgvy74) want to finish their league games or not. There have been no league games from this division (aside from Dood and Thatgvy playing) for weeks now.

I know Commander Leo has been posting here trying to get people's attention, so I know he wants to finish, but Alice, Badass, Llamahombre, Thatgvy: give be a solid answer here concerning whether you want to finish this or not. If you don't, then I'll conclude the league play with just the top two spots being promoted next season.

Alright, finished my match with Wallus.

me 5-3 wallus topman my pick

me 5-0 wallus mm8dw2 his pick

I won of all my games, so I don't think a tally up is needed.
Well, the foregone conclusion has been realized: Fyone has won the 1st division and the Overall Championship with a perfect record.

Only the following Division 3 league games remain:

Also, I've not heard any results from the Division 2 playoffs. Please get those games underway as soon as you're able:

Also, from the Damn-I-Wish-That-Would-Happen department, how's this for a ten player league:

Rawk Hawk
Orange Juice
Stylin (who was promoted)
Kage (who was promoted)
Promotion Playoff winner (TheMetalManU, SaviorSword, Cvideo, Light)

It'd never happen, but that'd be a lot of fun to both play in and watch.

So, what's going on with this?

Can you make a 1st post update with full matches and whatnot?
I will do this as soon as it is prudent. I'm kinda busy right now with various assignments.

Let me ask something, though: right now, I've removed the games of the players who forfeit, since I intended this to be a round robin. Do players want me to just account for the unplayed games as forfeit and add them in as wins and losses to the original records (this would be with all ten players considered) or do you want me to remove the games of the forfeited players as I have done currently (this would be with seven players per division).
