It is a great honor for the great Abu Jazar and his ally MAX the MASTER to announce the relaunch of the ELITE Dedicated Default server, available as of now.

The rules are based on the Default game mode, with the following exceptions:
- Radar sharing is selective from DEFCON 3. You can choose whether to share radar with your allies and anyone else.
- Double population.

Work is currently being done to provide recordings in an orderly manner.

Capacity and performance problems should not arise, given the server's top-notch hardware configuration, gigabit bandwidth, redundant power supply and multiple global internet backbone connections.

The hosts would like to extend their gratitude to Bert for his work on dedcon and its flexible implementation.
Abu Jazar and MAX the MASTER are looking forward to seeing many good Default games, and will consider setting up new servers by request.

Yeah I have a feature request can we do a 2v 2 server with survivor mode instead of default and we see how far point hoggers go, knowing they have to defend as well as attack ;) I think it will make for some interesting games defaults getting boring no ones added this feature to a 1v 1,2v2 or 3v3 server before and the pro games will be great when they happen I can feel a new style of play coming if you make these servers happen... :)Max youll prolly not like the mode knowing you wont make the top of the ladder 50 percent of the time lol...:P

I'd need to test this to be sure, but I think a major reason not to use survivor scoring instead of default scoring is because collateral can change the outcome of a close game. Here's an example to explain:

Default scoring:

-You nuke your enemy for 1m kills. That is +2 points for you, -1 point for them. 3 point difference.
-Your fighter gets shot down over a major enemy city for 1m collateral. That is +0 points for you, -3 points for them (-1 for the death, -2 for the collateral). Still a 3 point difference.

Survivor scoring:

-You nuke your enemy for 1m kills. +0 points for you, -1 point for them. 1 point difference.
-Your fighter gets shot down over a major enemy city for 1m collateral. +0 points for you, -2 points for them (for some reason, collateral is only -1 in survivor compared to -2 in default, I think). 2 point difference.

So let's say you play a great game as Russia against Asia, killing 99m. Asia only killed 98m. You have 2m in collateral because a fighter got shot down over Moscow when Asia was trying to scout you at Defcon 3. Your enemy has no collateral. Even though you have more survivors and cleaned them better, you will still lose.

Russia's score: 0 (-98 for the deaths, -2 for the collateral)
Asia's score: 1 (-99 for the deaths, no collateral)

Again this is just from my past knowledge of how collateral works, so I might be wrong. I will have to test it to be sure.

Hay can you take down your duplicate servers? We have a 3v3 no need to put up 3 more and spam lobby... Same gos for the duplicate 2v2/6 player default servers.

Sorry about that Sicilian, the dupes were an accident and it's back to normal now. Which includes our PRO EDITION 3v3 server. Different setup than G6, with double pop and selectable territories.
