Re: What's the Difference between the 3 Score Modes?

Finally, a reply! And then you necro the thread more than two years later like nothing happened. :wink: but you can't be purely reckless in Genocide. You have to prevent your people from getting killed too, otherwise you're giving points to the enemy. It's a fair point. Still as far as I know, no o...

Re: What's the Difference between the 3 Score Modes?

How do the 3 different scores modes affect the progress of the game? They all sound about the same to me: protect your people, kill the enemy's. Only Default is really like that. In that mode every million survivors is worth one point and every million kills is worth two points. In Survivor you onl...

Re: DEFCON Wishlist

Faster games. I wish a strict speed budget and game time was hard coded from the start. Something like 5 minutes of non-renewable real time per player, 45 minute max game time. I want games to be as fast as possible while keeping a high skill ceiling. Some aspects of the game might have to be chang...

Re: DEFCON Wishlist

Gotta agree with Endless here. Most of these quirks with the game physics are pretty easy to get around. It's a large part of why the first hour or two of high level games are largely on real-time. Whether or not that is a good thing is subjective, but it's the game we know. As far as substantive ch...

Re: DEFCON Wishlist

Clicking and dragging selects multiple units/fleets. If I had to choose just one thing to improve it would be this! Unless I'm misunderstanding something, wouldn't that result in a huge stack of ships if you select a bunch of singles and let them complete a move order? Seems pretty vulnerable if yo...

Defcon hasn't really been sinking. Things have been pretty steady for years now. As far as I can tell anyway.

Re: Unbanning people

Were you around when literally every time he posted something, it was anti-US propaganda? He got warning after warning to stop that it was just being trollish. It's not a travesty. It's just keeping us from having to deal with his bullshit. "Anti-US propaganda" is way too vague to justify...

Re: RGeezy911 abusing admin privileges, please help

This whole thread is defcon in a nutshell. Someone comes in that you don't like, so you bash them and bash them until they can't take anymore and leave. A lot of you have shown your true colors, for the good and the bad. The most liberal player i know (Kud) seems to be the most conservative and the...

Re: Endless Unbiased Official Top 25

My $0.02: Alias/fake noob games, especially 1v1s, are not all that reliable for gauging skill. That said, if it was the only way to get him to play then it's the best data we have. And AF losing to RU in 1v1 is extremely pathetic. As far as FFA being "real defcon" goes, I have to disagree....

That is way too vague to be a bannable offense. He should be able to post whatever he wants about the US or any other country.

Re: MURICON (part deuce)

Just played a 2v2. Everything worked well.

Good example of why recs are nice though. I had a little squadron (1 BB, 2 CVs) dancing with ~2/3s of a fleet all game. It would be nice to go back and see just how much damage they did.

Re: MURICON (part deuce)

I haven't been following the scandal too closely, but diversity in server ownership/management is a good (even necessary) thing for the game/community. Still, not having recs would make this pretty much a non-starter for me. That's just my two cents though. The more important message is a "than...

Re: Endless Unbiased Official Top 25

Byron will be back in I'm still not sure if I'm "back" back. I have really enjoyed playing the last few days though, so maybe. It's great to see so many old and new faces around. Yeah Endless got Rekt Fresh TM by Byron today. I pulled off a personal win but was unable to pull off a team w...
