Improved Scoreboard

Postby lackattack on Thu Apr 01, 2010 8:19 am

Alas, the Flip the Board feature was just an April Fool's prank (246 people actually attempted to flip their boards, by the way :shock: ). I think it's high time for a feature that is NOT a prank...

Scoreboard Improvements

The new scoreboard has these features:

Ties are now given the same position #. In other words, if you and someone else are tied for 5th place, you both get a 5 and the next player gets a 7. Tied players are listed alphabetically.

To add these features without impacting server performance, the scoreboard will no longer be "live" and will be updated every hour like the Conqueror position.

Hopefully these changes will help you better understand how you place against the competition. It may even help you find fellow countrymen to play with!


Proxy Blocking

After studying web proxy use for several months we've discovered that much less than 1% of our membership visits Conquer Club through web proxies and a large portion of this proxy use is by members with multiple accounts. We decided to block access to Conquer Club through web proxies to help our multi hunters enforce the rules and keep out the bad guys.

Unfortunately some members who use proxies legitimately to get past firewalls at school or work will be affected. We regret this side effect and hope those affected end up with better grades and promotions to make up for this ;)


Map XML Enhancement

To provide you with new challenging maps and to keep things interesting for map makers, we'll be making single enhancements to the map XML format on a regular basis.

To begin with, we've expanded the objective to include continents. This will lead to maps with more flexible winning objectives like "hold 60% of the world". For more information about map development, please visit the Map Foundry.

I agree with mibi, at the top there has to be at least 1000 players with 1000 score
