Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
Yeah, that sounds good. I still think that three squads should be the most, that a player can be in with one account at a time, two would be better though. We'd have to think of something that the player would have to do when multiple squads that he is in have a conflict. I say the player should not choose, rather is forced to be on the side of the squad that he was on the longest ago. That or the player just can't participate in those types of conflicts.

If we allow 2+ squad memberships per account, blocking you from participation where there is an obvious conflict of interests does make sense.

Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
Just remember membership is per league not total so you could be in more then 2 squads if those squads don't play in other leagues.  You could be in 2 Euro and 2 world league squads for instance if the 4 squads did not play in both leagues.

the system never allowed you to play in such games before afaik..

I don't think this has actually ever worked in real squad war back in those days... people can always make more than 1 account and join 1 squad with each of those. Actually getting the thing to work should be of a higher priority than sorting out the details :P

You're kinda screwed when both squads face off though. :p

Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
Yes the rule was any player that was a member of both squads could not participate in any match between the two.  Common sense really.

Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
Well, that all sounds good to me right now, I'm in a hurry at the moment so I didn't think too much about it.

What else do we want? I want a status update on how this is coming.

\/ \/ \/ Extra Statement Below \/ \/ \/

I've noticed that there are a certain few per thread that tend to post often. Then there are those who are active everywhere, pretty much, and I was thinking... ... ... most people just post and forget about it. Then there are us, (probably incorrect grammar there) who make sure to check the little "Notify me of replies." thingy. That way we know about it and reply.

Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
I auto-notify to anything I reply to, sometimes I reply with something near useless instead of just hitting 'notify'.  That's our little secret though.

As far as progress, the old squadwar code is somewhat up and running, and I'm still needing to add more test data and do more poking around to see how it behaved.  Then hopefully we'll port that behavior to PHP but with a working connection to the user database, and then work on the new Squadwar.

I don't think you have an idea how severe rivalary was back in the days. Allied squads hardly ever fought each other anyways. So that situation VERY rarely occured.

 
Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
Not necessarily allied squads, just squads that the player was in.

Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
That almost seemed to imply that no one would ever be in two squads that weren't allied.

Correct.
"Neutrality means that you don't really care, cuz the struggle goes on even when you're not there: Blind and unaware."

"We still believe in all the things that we stood by before,

Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
Limiting the player to multiple squads only when they are allied seems fair, but now we need to discuss alliances.
When two squads form an alliance, then would they be able to assist in another squads battles? What would being an ally mean for the two squads? And should there be a limit as to how many squads can form an alliance?

 
Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
It was never handled by :V: or the website, that was just left up to the pilots.

Really? That's a surprise. I thought :v: had at least one person to look after things.

Re: Squadwar will return one day. Get your suggestions in now.
Hmm, yeah I don't think my dev server can handle the HLP effect :P

I'll reboot it later tonight and we'll see if it can hang in for another few days.  I need to set up development on a real server.

Game Warden isn't really a viable choice, is it? It's run off donations.

Let me ask you, Androgeos, what do you think HLP is run on? Besides Ads? I mean, http://www.hard-light.net/donate/ doesn't exist for fun, you know.
