It would be handy to disable the music and background audio independently of other, more critical noises like launch klaxons, and especially the comms beeping with new messages. I usually have Winamp going with the game sound down to keep it from interfering, but it's all-or-nothing, and the drunker I get, the more likely I am to miss critical chatter from allies without the audio cue.

Fix micro managing your AA fire, so they target properly. Several forum members have said that this feature is broken.

*Ahem*
Please speak out about bugfix wishes in the new thread I created therefore.
It might help things get noticed ;)

A ranking system could work well i think.

You beat me to it, I was about to post the exact same request, although I'm not sure how it would work if people keep changing their names, maybe a system can be put in place to accomodate that?

Jerks can't lock up a game!

Limit the number of text entries per player to 5 or so entries per minute.
That way jerks can't lock up a game!
I hate sore loosers or jerks that just hit a key stroke and the enter button like a machine gun, and freeze up a good game!

This can be done using DedCon. Most of the dedicated servers are set up to do this. Already been implemented. 8)

Better AI

Postby vErTiGo » Thu Aug 30, 2007 9:48 pm

I've never been one for online multiplayer type interaction, so a better AI (one that can actually implement a good strategy) gets my vote.

Sorry, was upset and made a useless rant post about intentional crashing of games.

And now I will speak. I demand that they add territorial handicaps.

If two players of exactly equal skill play, the territories judge the winner not the players therefore proving that the map is biassed.

Make the patch level the playing field more!!

Just create a mod with equal territories. Handicaps won't solve the problem.

Or better yet, increase your skill over that of your opponent. :P

Edit: I had toyed with the idea of having some sort of "wait ready" option/state for players that join a server during slow times. This would allow them to click ready, not have it affect other players or solicit the dedcon "not enough players yet" message and still be able to do other things (instead of staring blankly at a half empty chat free server for 10 minutes.

Disclaimer: no attempt was or will be made to search the forums for that idea. :P

Giving some good Players the chance for making an good Territorial is useful than the actual Territorial..
