    Responding to the few spread threads around here and adding to this one:

    TWDD resolution limit will be decided with an in-game poll.
    EDIT: To clarify, it will either stay the same or be upped to 1920 x 1080.
    The poll will run for 1 week (7 days) - on a yet unspecified date.

    Only TWD registered players can vote
    Only 1 vote per player
    The poll will be held in ?go TWD as it's a familiar arena for everyone that intends or has registered to TWD before.
    Pros and Cons regarding the possible change will be included as a greetmsg, as well as some background information.

    This way players won't have to go out-of-game to cast their vote, and the players who it really concerns will be able to vote, but no else.

    We're still waiting for dev to have bot be able to save the votes to database so if the bot crashes all won't be lost, but we should be able to continue where we left at.


    TWD ratings are still being worked on. For WB and Jav they're fairly complete, but for basing there's some complexity to it with different ships coming to play, teamkills, terr kills etc.
    Once we're at the point where we can start changing the rating system on site, we'll be doing so.
    It will require some down time for TWD, as well as players and squads for testing it. TWD staff and dev will stay close to this project when the change happens, so as to provide as much support to players and squads that want to be involved in it as possible.


    Some players have asked me when roster caps will be put in place.
    While I'm concerned over a few squads stacking and recruiting players constantly despite having way over the quantity they need, I'm more inclined to let TWD play out freely right now.
    Hopefully once TWD ratings are finished and we reset the ladders players will want to join squads they get to play in to prove they're the shit. Or create their own squads.
    I'm still analyzing the situation all the time.

    I'm also running multiple other ideas in my head and through dev on a daily basis, but a lot of it requires web developers. Unfortunately those are exactly the ones we're lacking.

        I've gotten plenty of positive feedback about that. "refreshing" "less spawns"
        Compared to TWDT where the spawn radius is as before, players have complained about spawns.

        There is always a chance though you spawn next to an enemy. But the increased radius lowers that chance considerably.
        It does mean you have to coordinate and find your team better and more, but that's how a team game is meant to be played anyway.

          If you raise the twdd cap to 1920, many players will leave. Including me.

          And yes, address the spawn changes. They are just ridiculous.

                  Hey guys.

                  It's been a while since I informed you of any changes.
                  Partially because of me being busy with a new job and others being busy with their lives and other projects.

                  Anyway,

                  Qan has made some small changes to MatchBots:

                  !chtop was removed completely.
                  Captains and assistants are now able to use the following new commands

                  MatchBot> !challengeall <players> -------------- (!chall)request a game of TW*D against any squad with <players>s
                  MatchBot> !challenge <squad1,squad2,...> -- challenge multiple squads


                  !challengeall is self-explanatory.
                  Even if a squad is hidden in the TWD ladder on TWD site, it will be included in the !challengeall command as long as they have played 1 game in the challenged division.

                  !challenge Squad1,Squad2 on the other hand will challenge the named squads with the minimum amount of players required for a match.
                  For TWDD and TWJD it will challenge the squads for a 3v3 match, and for TWBD it will challenge the squads for a 5v5 match.

                  You can always use the !addplayer feature for more players if both squads agree.

                    Quick clarification, you should be able to use !challenge for multiple squads and also specify # of players. You just can't specify the arena at the same time (atm; sorry, MatchBot's one of our oldest bots and has been added onto over years and years, resulting in a freak of nature very few can stomach). So if you're in the arena of the league you want to challenge in, it should work to specify # of players along with multiple squads.

                      When are you going to allow double squadding or remove twd join time between squads. We have like 5 twd games all day and you guys still trying to enforce rules from 2001.

                        TWD Roster Limit: 30 to be applied on May 8th


                        Captains of every squad have until then to set their rosters within the limit.
                        If any squads remain above 30 players, TWD staff will then proceed to make the necessary changes.

                          TWD Resolution Poll, Keep as is OR Remove?

                          Poll runs on bot named TW-Vote which resides in Pub0.
                          Votes are restricted to TWD registered names and only 1 vote per player is allowed.


                          POLL WILL RUN UNTIL TUESDAY, MAY 10TH 1AM EST! That is 193 hours from now.


                          The result of the poll will be final for the remainder of the time I stay as Head of TWD.
                          Future TWD Heads will reserve the right to change whatever they deem necessary.

                          How to vote:
                          ?go 0
                          :TW-Vote:!polls

                          Worth noting: All votes will be registered in the database. This means even if the bot dies, the votes will be recorded and retrievable.
