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.



Sweet!

We should definitely ensure that only official tournaments are recognised of course...and these tournaments should include those that have more than 4 rounds and do not contain one team ranked thousands of points more than everybody else especially if one of that team is vetting the participants!


1st off fruitcake, it is cc rules, not yours, if CC awarded any player a medal for winning a tournament, they will receive one and displayed with the amount in the scoreboard section, perhaps some tourney rules may of changed recently, however, others would be grandfathered in, because they earned them by the rules at the time. 2nd, you cannot suggest one team thousands more points than other teams should not get one, the fact they have the balls to play anyone and everyone and win, is good enough. I attempted at times in the past to only have high rank tourney players and I got blasted by former organizers. You have to leave it open to a majority of the public and play any and all, by doing this it will cost you many points and your score will drop a ton even if you win a majority of games, because the average CC tourney player (while respectable) is around 2000 points lower than the score you and I have. Gilligan has a list in the Hall of Fame tourney sections as I have one with the assistance of Lindax in general discussion, those would all count as they were all by CC rules if lackattack and or andy decides to implement this.

I am just saying if it was or is within the CC tournament rules, they should and will count. High ranks generally have to sacrifice a ton of points for tournament titles. It is a little touchy with me because I wanted a lot of high ranks in my tournaments to get them more involved, but, this was not allowed and basically this is what I was told, that I had to start making them more open to the general public, not just 2500+, so basically, I had to trade points and cripple my relative rank at a great loss for tournament wins, I didn't like it much, but, I did it to prove a point, that high ranks or some anyways can succeed at winning tournaments. Not many high ranks with 3500 score+ will play around 3,000 tournament games when the average player you face is 2000 score lower than you are, but, this is what I did, and this is why I was strong on saying they count. I poured in a ton of time at a high price and that should account for something.

I do not think he was talking about you playing tournaments blitz. He was talking about you running 4 team quads with 2 rounds total. Not much imagination there is it? (You and 3 teams, which is not much competition either) Or those 16 player 2500+ tournaments, which had a total of 15 games. It is things like that is why sometimes you get a bad rep. If you wanted to host a 2500+ singles tournament, then make it multiple maps and many games long. Make people work for it, rather than win 4 games and win it all. Just saying, though I do not have a dog in this fight, but this is what many people think.

So what you have done is legalized FARMING through bogus tourneys.. :roll: : there should be some sort of guideline . i was thinking of having a heads up tourney, 2 contenders , 1 game and the winner can then boast that they have won a tourney get his medal and i can get mine for hosting and putting in the time of running it. Better yet maybe i list like 10 or so at a time that would definitly make it legit then. What say you :-s

There already are minimum requirements for a tournament, and all of Blitz's tournaments haven fallen within those rules. New rules will be coming out soon, but this thread is not about tournaments, it's about the scoreboard.

I assume the new rules will only apply towards tournys that have not started? Also would those 'new rules' apply to tournies still currently recruiting players?

BTW, the new scoreboard is AWESOME ;)
rds is awesome!
