    Hmmm… you guys are gonna have a field day with me when I hop on the servers.

    Just finished up the monster project at work, I’ll be back shortly.

    And for everyone complaining that they want to get on the newbie server because there’s never anyone on the mains…

    The reasons there’s nobody on the mains are :

    1) Fewer newbies stick to it long enough to get 50.
    2) Too many pros play on the newbie server while the mains is empty. There is no immediate incentive to migrate to the empty server for the pros once they’re on the bot server.
    3) There’s no mandatory migration to the mains.

    The beginner server should be for strict beginner-only play. The bots should be giving advice (re-text the messages they send with common stuff like “did you remember to turn on your chutes?” “Save your money each round to earn more interest” “Sell back what you don’t need each round”)

    There’s no reason the pros need to be on there to “teach” if the bots can do it.

    Personally, I’m all for a kill cap on the newbie server after what I’ve seen on there. I’ve stopped in incognito a couple times to see players wiping out the newbies over and over and over again. It’s pretty pathetic.

    Frankly, if you have any skill, you should be on the mains playing the good players, not picking on the fresh meat that we want to mature and grow all nice and maggoty.

    Ok, that was a bad metaphor…

    But really, there are a couple of people that get their jollies picking on unskilled players. That drives newcomers away. Far better that they have a 100 or 150 kill limit and they graduate out to the big leagues and continue the learning.

    Newbies would have no trouble getting the 50-kill goal if there weren’t people abusing them in there. And THAT is the reason the pros shouldn’t play there… it stops newcomers from getting 50 kills against similarly skilled opponents. If you’ve got one or two pros there, a newbie would be lucky to get 2 or 3 kills.

    At one point, I was against the kill limit, now I’m strongly for it.

    True, Cinn, lasers aren’t really ideal for standard use. But the laser/fuel combination strategy, which Willis is so fond of, although expensive is practically unchallengable when employed in an ‘average’ round. Shields won’t stop it; attempting to dodge can’t be done quickly enough; and unless you happen to be a psychopath who carries a DH at all times, it’s pretty hard to get a hit in.

    I agree that the return on them isn’t nearly enough, though.

    He’s got to stop to shoot, that’s when you get your shot in.

    That’s the thing though. Round, round, round he goes, where he stops, nobody F’in knows! 😀

    Meh. Just get rid of all the dirt. That’ll slow him down.

    He’s got to stop to shoot, that’s when you get your shot in. And for two heavies and fuel (18k), you’ve probably got 18k worth of hardware that’s going to erase him.

    After he pulls it the first time, having batts pretty much slows it down.

    I soon realized that this weapon has gotten poor response from players, for whatever reasons, but it is a very under estimated weapon, it takes 2 blasts to kill an opponant, but……

    I don’t use lasers unless I’m really bored because (specific to heavies):

    1) For the cost, there are weapons that will get me a one-shot kill for far less money and time than a two-shot heavy laser barrage.

    2) I can’t aim downhill.

    3) Too many people use batteries to make the lasers effective. If I connect with one, it’s likely the opponent repairs with batteries and the second heavy laser in the bundle is practically useless. If an opponent has a full 10-bundle of batts, two lasers are unlikely to sap his strength enough to keep him from reaching me.

    4) Cost-effectiveness on return is too low. The weapon level on heavy lasers is so high that you don’t get enough cash for the kill or damage to offset the cost for two shots compared to other weapons.

    5) For completeness, I suck at direct shots. I’ve practiced enough with a laser to discover that the optimum aiming point is slightly below the other tank(see #2 as to why this is a headache as well), and I know the vague elevations for most ranges, but I still suck.

    On the rare occasion that there is a damaged opponent and another live opponent, I’m more likely to change my target and shoot the live opponent in an effort to win the round over an attempt to race them to the kill.

    I’d play in a laser-only tourney because everyone would have the same handicaps, but if people have access to conventional weaponry, the laser doesn’t measure up in it’s current form other than as a novelty as part of something goofy like a dirt-and-laser strat (which I tried once or twice out of boredom)

    By the way, this looks like one of two things :

    a) A guy who thought that claiming he ran the server would allow him to bully other players on the server.

    or

    b) An idiot who thought he set up his own server, but incorrectly connected to yours and thought it was his own.

    b) is funnier, but it’s more likely to be a).

    Are you guys telling me that because Im not an official server, that I am not public…If I wanted to be private, Id make a password

    No, you’re running a privately-owned, public server if you put your server up and allow public access.

    The “official” servers are the 3/4 servers that are run by the dude that wrote the game. It doesn’t mean any other server isn’t running the official version of Scorched 3D, it’s just a term they use to designate the home turf, I think.

    The admins for the “official” servers can’t administer your privately-run, publically-accessable server. YOU are the admin there, as well as anyone else you designate.

    I think the admins just want to make sure that the same two idiots don’t create issues on other servers.

    Note that other admin-owners for other privately-run, public-access servers frequent this board as well, and welcome warnings about troublemakers. Bobirov, for example, is one. A guy who runs his own server, not a troublemaker, I mean.

    As just a player, I appreciate the warning, ’cause I know not to play with those two guys you pointed out if I see them.

    BTW, I would have “slap”‘ed them a few times if I were you, before I kicked them, but only to point out that you were the admin and they were not. Unless you didn’t change the default admin password(is there one?) and they also had admin access. Which would have been amusing as well.

    D’oh!!!

    -barnabas

    ps remember when you die on the first shot of a round while completely missing your target, you know what it’s like to be me.

    It’s worse when you’re the one that kills you. I’ve had that happen, too.

    Damn gravity.
