MAXtheMASTER wondering...

Postby MAXtheMASTER » Mon Oct 14, 2013 5:02 pm

...what has been up since january? It was fun dominating the game for a few weeks, but I quickly grew bored of all the blatant spamming, threats, sexism and/or racism dominating the servers. It wasn't like that when the game was released. It would however seem like the decline in active Defcon players has contributed to a new sense of sportsmanship and community building in the game and in the forum. Am I right? Or dead mistaken? Update me on Defcon 2013. Is this the time for the return of...

I noticed a dedicated 2v2v2 Server last time I looked on the Metaserver, which might appeal to two friends who want to team up against some decent opposition (if any ever showed up...). I like the format, as you have the pleasure of teamwork as in 2v2, but also ffa type scoring, which is still my favourite shh don't tell anyone.
I think we tested 2v2v2 to be included in a Tourney a few years ago, but it seemed very few participents knew how to play it, and the format was dropped, which made me sad.

Group 6 has a one of a kind thing on Defcon. We have chat filters that will filter out any racist slurs. You may swear like a sailor if you wish, but racist comments are not. Making the game more CIVIL :D

I think of 1v1/2v2 as like Chess, and 6 player ffa as like a game of Monopoly. Chess is deep, and long lived, but Monopoly is great for a party :D .

filter seems a bit off to me - still able to cuss cultures pretty well.

specially when you use old time style insults like cocoon, uncle tom, celestials, bog-nigger, german oven mitt, firewood and Dr White!
