  • Yeah, I do still need to add the K/D tracker for wb/javduel. Have had a ticket open quite some time but just have never gotten to it. Each of these uses a different system so it has to be adapted slightly, but overall doesn't take all that long.

  • OK, thanks for this, should be fixed next reboot.

    Seems smart. Increase by .2 or so every time, something like that? Would balance itself out naturally. At the moment it's just providing an extra vote when the other ship's been played twice in a row before.

    Also, what happened to your sig image?...

    Got mine in! Unscripted, so it's a lot of "oh wow" and "cool," but you can get an idea of what it's like via stellar webcam footage converted to a lossy format.

    Thanks for doing this, BIET! Amazing work!

    Trying out 2nd highest deaths for !late. (If the elim is 1v1, it will still use the highest # of deaths, though.)

    KillRace has also been removed for the time being. It can be fun, but it's not what keeps people playing.

    replied to arena lock before elim game
    The reason for this is mostly technical. The bot has to load stats for everyone, and then it starts the game after it verifies they're all loaded. The code for !late was added after this base functionality was written, so it's kind of pieced together. Basically,...

    replied to Elim Season 9
    I still feel like 2nd most deaths has potential for abuse. But, I suppose we could try it and just risk it? Anyone object?

    Also, is there anyone who would be heartbroken if we disabled KillRace? It's always felt more like an event than Elim, and...

    replied to Borrowing in TWD is so good
    Can always look at raising the limit again if you guys think it doesn't have any disadvantages. The risk is becoming too much like BWJS if it could be just a single person on each squad and the rest borrows, but if it gets games going it's hard to argue a...

    replied to Borrowing in TWD is so good
    Thanks for the kind words. Undeserved, though. Borrowing was an idea that snowballed over years of many people in the community brainstorming ways to try and save TWD. It was just the most successful one implemented. I put the code in but I don't deserve the...

    How qualifications were announced: It was a slightly obscure post made by Undercut in the TWD forums rather than TWL. "TWL Staff will be using these ladders to monitor activity levels of squads planning on playing in TWL."

    The implication...

    replied to Who should get ship skins?
    fiS Basicaclly, we're talking about alternate ship skins for Elim. 3 Jav alts and 3 WB alts. It's a little tricky because you have to preserve the lighting, so simply applying a series of filters may not be enough (a few of us have tried it so far, but nothing...

    As you may have noticed, the bot should output those who did not play the last match when starting a new one, so it might be a step in the right direction. It's at least clearer and more out in the open now.

    replied to New Elim Site
    Regarding only showing wins, game data for non-winners is only available very recently. This was a change made in anticipation of this site's release. It seems crazy, but yes, for years we have only been storing per-game stats for winners. (Or rather, the...

    replied to Who should get ship skins?
    One thing to keep in mind is that anyone with these skins may get hunted more (for personal reasons and because they're worth more in terms of points), so that people might earn them, but then elect not to use them, seeing them as a disadvantage, much like...

    New Elim Site

    Our newest webdev, AngelGirl, has been working hard on a new Elim website.


    It comes with per-game data that can't be seen on our old site at http://www.trenchwars.org/elim

    replied to IDEA: Ship Skins in Elim
    Didn't know that existed. That would be the place to start feeding in the backup, for sure. I wonder who's running that site these days. Sent off a message on their contact form. If you can get in touch with who's operating it, perhaps we can streamline an...

    replied to ELIM JAV/WB duel modes.
    BIET was working on a system at one point for a Battle Royale mode (shrinking arena based on circles). It looked really cool. Don't think he ever finished, though.

    Most Dangerous Game is the module that forces you to make a kill within X seconds,...

    I wouldn't call that a system so much as the start of an idea.

    We'd have to look at how many consecutive base games run, to begin with. See http://www.trenchwars.org/base to get a feel for it. We're basically looking at the days where there are...

    Then give me some solution to work with that everybody can be happy with. Forcing caps to choose players is extremely heavy-handed. Even if they're chosen, there's no reason caps couldn't just sub them out. (Do you make subbing out of forced players illegal?...

    It ran for years and years through a captaining system that was essentially a whitelist, in which staffers would assign captaincy only to veterans (or else be groused as newbie staff for giving cap to any old player). It was only very recently that it converted...
