I took a brake from fleetops, probably because I anticipated a patch which did not come but lets drop that.

But recently I decided to have a peek and "run one" since everybody was already assembled. Nothing has changed... nothing! Needed a week to get the game started, we were getting bogged down by people who wanted to wait for more players once they have already committed to playing and when it finally comes the time to hit that launch button some genius got a bright idea to get some coffee or cookies or something, then he is gone for so long that it almost seems he went to China to get them! :wacko:

This is other people you are dealing with, not the computer! Have you no consideration towards other people? Have you no respect?

YOU ARE CHASING PEOPLE AWAY!!!

Those that know me also know that I've been hanging on in Tunngle longer than any other player that joined approximately the same time. Arshea, Zweistein, Mike, Boomz, these are all people who joined within the same year as me, but you are so busy being full of yourselves that you don't even remember half of them. Zweistein, who was not only my countryman, but also lives only 10km away from me said to my face he was sick of the incessive stalling and selfish whaling caused by some the mainstream players.

You really should taken your example from league of legends. There such offenses against commited newcommers are punished by a giant rubber boot up their ass and people can be made to dissapear for up to a week for their narcisistic attitude!

In my opinion 3v3+ games are currently the ones that are most fun cause (if balanced right) the games are not that predictable...

Personally, I'm totally guilty of this. However for me it usually did take around 5 minutes (usually less) to do that.

The same criticist's approach includes your offtopic troll boy! >:(

I like this mod, I really do, and if I weren't broke, I would have donated since I first learned about it. But the devs are so keen on hanging on to the few mainstream players that still play, that they let them get away with anything. Then they go on, venting their abhorrent scallywag attitude while newcomers die from boredom while waiting for people to come back from china with milk and cookies or whatever it is they went for...

I am not asking for harsh judgement here but I would really like it if a dev, any dev, would give these guys some incentive to be more considerate of newcomers.

My heart bleeds to see an already small community trickling away...

I'm gonna be honest, I'm struggling to understand what you're saying here. I think you're accusing me of trolling you, which I'm not, I legitimately didn't know one could all caps a title. I do lampoon your decision to put the title in caps, it takes any gravitas away from your points, which clearly matter a lot to you.

I think you misunderstand what the devs do, they only make the game, the game is played mainly on tunngle's networks (and doesn't even need tunngle), the devs have absolutely no legitimate control over player's attitudes and behaviour. if someone behaves inappropriately while playing this game, there's nothing the devs can do to stop them. They can't ban people from tunngle, only the teamspeak server that the devs host.

as is usually the case on the internet, if you have problems with the way someone acts, you have to take it up with them directly.

Titles are always in caps now as the new style :)

Like I said... troll...

Yeah, but teaching these guys some consideration is like teaching a cat how to bark... coincidentally somebody actually succeded, maybe I should ask him for advice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aP3gzee1cps >:D

In the thread yes, but window title/tab title is case sensitive. all threads have standard caps for window title, this one has all caps window title.

Just to clarify:

We've got no means of automatching or any other fancy server-based method of enforcing game start times. It's up to players to decide such stuff. If you can't stand waiting for someone, you can always personally use the (unfriendly) method of kicking.

One solution I can think of would be if you could make specific plans with people. More planing would be required but then you would not have to wait for people. 1v1s would be the easiest to arrange this way. I could go for a game or 2.

more planning is not what we need. Some people dont want or cant plan their game times...not all of us are students or unemployed

You are correct drrrrrr. That is why I said ONE solution. I do not have an internet connection at home that will support gaming effectively. I would need to take my laptop to work and I do not do that everyday. My times to play would also be around the time of this post. Due to this I can not just jump on and play whenever I want.

The problem here is not internet issues, its the user's behavior. Instead of trying to help people to resolve their tunngle issues, they are ostracized from gaming, driving even more people away! :pinch:

I thought the main reason for many people not playing FO at the moment is them waiting for the epic patch.

However, when I did play a lot I remember people coming back after a few minutes or so and if not, they at least told why they leave a running or "about to get started" game (for example).

Hell, I do drink so many cups of coffee a day it's just natural I use the time waiting for others with getting some.

I know, sometimes it still takes forever until everyone is back, but I do not think it's unfair behaviour because living means having things to do beyond gaming. Someone's getting an important call, gets visited by surprise or something - does it make someone a bad person to not ignore such things because he wants to play a game or because people are waiting and getting impatient? Hell, if they do, they've chosen the wrong kind of game. There are plenty games in which one hasn't got to wait... SCII - there's always someone playing cause it's so damn popular around the world.

FO = not popular for a mainstream gaming audience = patience required
