    SoXu: cons:
    – using groups is probably the reason why he is so sloppy and does everything so slowly

    EVERY time I’ve ever allied somebody who doesn’t group units, I end up seeing an army’s worth of units scattered throughout the map, forgotten, by mid-game.

    The strength/weakness thing is an interesting idea. What makes a particular player good is always an interesting topic. I won’t make a list since I’m not even active, but… relying on feeding fast/early and being ahead, getting discouraged and throwing the game when you’re behind but not defeated, being unable to develop strategies to win during…[Read more]

  • Shal replied to the topic If you could have one thing changed about ba what would it be? in the forum Map Development 5 days, 6 hours ago

    LeBron: Rework the bounty system completely. Less basic bounty, bounty gets increased with unit upgrades = less feeding by noobs and less snowballing. But it would change the game a lot and require a lot of time which i dont wanna commit right now, so…

    This change actually sounds pretty nice, if you ever get a large chunk of time and want to m…[Read more]

  • Shal replied to the topic ban request for a1sok in the forum Bot Discussions 1 month ago

    The rule is quite clearly designed to prevent coordination with your enemies. Asking why somebody is attacking him is not coordinating with his enemies. A1sok pretty clearly is just expressing bafflement at losing to what he thinks is a bad decision by whoever’s attacking him.

    I’ve definitely said similar things when I’m annoyed that somebody is…[Read more]

  • Shal replied to the topic Top 5 best bases in game!!!! in the forum Bot Discussions 1 month ago

    Corrupted Forest is definitely one of my favorite bases. It’s not always amazing at the end of a game, but it makes life pretty easy early on.

  • Shal replied to the topic Top 5 best bases in game!!!! in the forum Bot Discussions 1 month ago

    You need to consider not only a base’s potential but also how likely that base is to fulfill that potential. For example, nerubs are potentially super strong but can get shit on pretty easily at the start, so I wouldn’t throw them on a “top bases” list. On the other hand, Corrupted Forest isn’t an amazing late-game base, but it’s very solid at the…[Read more]

    I haven’t been active for a bit, but what comes to mind for me is…
    Corrupted Forest
    Daktog
    Balkar
    Arbor

  • Shal replied to the topic Lobby Dodging in the forum Bot Discussions 1 month ago

    #2 is the only option that would actually take a step towards fixing the issue. The others just make it so that people dodge via looking at the virtual lobby before they join or they’d make bad players like Skillz take a little longer to reach GM without really changing anything.

    But you’d have to find a sweet spot between 1) giving enough…[Read more]

    Finally a reasonable post from Tony that I can wholeheartedly agree with.

  • Shal replied to the topic pixie is a world class bitch, pussy, liar in the forum Clans and Competition 2 months ago

    Why would you still be asking to ally him after the first game?

  • Shal replied to the topic Changes to the rules suggestion in the forum Bot Discussions 2 months, 1 week ago

    Totally fine with making these additions to the rules. It’s pretty much how we already saw things, just makes it a bit more clear.

    Some people will, of course, still be confused anyway.

  • Shal replied to the topic Ban Request for Crook in the forum Bot Discussions 2 months, 1 week ago

    If we wanted to ban Crook, we’d just ban Crook.

    I’d go in and edit the rules to read: “Rule #7: Being a faggot is not allowed.” and it’d be done.

    We don’t avoid banning people just because they’ll “find a way to keep going” and we “won’t break them.” You posted in another thread about how you “don’t care about the rules” and just evaluate things…[Read more]

  • Shal replied to the topic Leaderboard/Rating Disabled in the forum Bot Discussions 3 months, 1 week ago

    The problem with opting in or out of the leaderboard is that we don’t have enough players to run two separate systems on two bots. If somebody doesn’t care about their leaderboard stats, then.. just don’t look at the leaderboard. You can’t really have ranked and nonranked players playing with each other, for several reasons – the most problematic…[Read more]

    LeBron is editing the map, Anders does work on the site – leaderboard, bunch of BACP features, stats and things. I’m the babysitter.
