  1. A good way to not discourage mappers would maybe be to not endorse publicly mappers or maps that only focus on artwork. As a competitive player, there is nothing more infuriating than seing the devs adding maps officially to the map pool just because it has pretty meshes and the mapper has apparently spent alot of time on it. Sanctum was never play tested for a long period, was never in any tournament but it got added straight away just because it was a promeus map and looked "good". If I was a serious mapper that wanted to produce a good 1v1 map, I'd be pretty pissed about maps being arbitrarily added in the mm map pool and could just take the easy route on by working on art rather than proposing very solid gameplay in my map. Map making is not about the facade, if your map looks good but plays badly, it'll maybe be added in the match making pool if you make it shiny enough so the devs notice, it won't be however in any serious tournament or competition. If your map is good, it'll get played, if it isn't it won't, it's as simple as that, people still wonder why The Catalyst is the most played map in match making (check the replays), very simple explanation, it's the most balanced map currently in the game, people might not agree with that statement but it's the objective truth. Nobody is forcing people to play The Catalyst more than 421, certainely not the 10 people that make up the "top players". Shoving new maps down our throat in the mm competitive pool without a vetting process is not the right way to get them approved and is counter productive for the mapper. Also, I do agree that new maps can make it easier for some players to catch up, you'll have to invest alot of time anyways if you want to get to the top, regardless of the maps currently being played, it's not like it makes a difference, don't be delluded into thinking that new maps will magically make you catch up faster or even get to the top, it takes alot more than new maps being played. tldr : don't add maps just because they look pretty or because it's made by this mapper. Work on gameplay, not art. Don't shove maps down our throats.
  2. 3rd video of the series : Thank you all for the feedback and the suggestions, as I said in the first video and the first post, the first few videos will be about what I consider the most important aspects in duelling in reflex which can help you improve drastically, I'll probably do more advanced videos in the future, right now I'm trying to keep the videos below 10/15mins. Feedback is always appreciated. Thank you for watching !
  3. I'll be starting a Duel guide series on youtube, mostly aimed at current and upcoming duelers that want to improve. Feel free to provide feedback on the videos and suggest topics you want to cover, the first few videos will be about the basics, I'll probably go into the more advanced stuff as the series goes on. Playlist 1. Introduction 2. Fundamentals 3. Movement Thank you for watching !
  4. Always experienced this since I started to set the volume at 0 sometimes. (1+ year easily)
  5. map vetos.
  6. Could the "3 map selection" thing that pops up be removed ? and just handled randomly, seems unfair in my opinion if you know your opponent and are able to pick a certain map. Could the starcraft 2 map preferences model be a thing ? Just like in the current reflex system, there is a "playlist" of map, and you have 3 vetos, and are forced to play the rest of the maps you haven't vetoed.
  7. List of quick suggestions in order of importance : -Display the map pool like you display the servers and let people choose what they want to play (starcraft/csgo style), some people don't want to play certain maps and others just want to only play a specific one. -Add an option so we're not forced to join an ffa server while waiting. -servers were laggy for me, they also happen to be all 16 slots for no reason. -Make the mmr visible, display the divisions (starcraft style). - I understand that the ruleset stuff isn't settled but please add the obvious stuff like you did in 47.1 Experimental: Player hitbox uses new bullet shape Max splash damage a rocket can now do is 85 (direct is still 100) . And wallclipping could be nice aswell. Oh and the last 2 rank names, please reconsider. Thank you.
  8. @shooter Hi, would be nice if the entire chatlog was displayed in the console as some stuff currently isn't (namely rolls or when a player joins/disconnects, goes to the spec etc). Thank you.
  9. Replay : https://www.dropbox.com/s/b259p9ii9k56osl/Furnace_Ramagan_Xv2_03Dec2016_1736_0markers.rep?dl=0 Also possible with grenades and plasma.
  10. As some of you may know, Reflex testers have now the possibility of using an "expplus" ruleset that unlocks many of the game's cvars. Some of these testers are producing different versions of "expplus", adjusting many variables, proposing different gameplay, weapon balance, movement, etc... In order to stimulate the feedback over these various rulesets, I (along others) thought it would be a good idea to have a central discord server to discuss the different aspect of each of the tester's ruleset and have some sort a think tank for more creativity and diversity. The ultimate goal is to unlock reflex's full potential in terms of gameplay and balance, and to enlarge the number of people testing the rulesets and providing feedback which will lead to more refined gameplay. Discord invite : https://discord.gg/yUgp8qR Everyone from all skill levels is welcomed, we will have extensive discussions on weapon balance, movement and all that good stuff. Your feedback and playtesting is geatly appreciated. NB : the rulesets we're testing will not be final or pushed in the game, this is only a temporary situation dedicated to testing and experimenting to help the developers.
  11. I don't even know where to begin, so I'll just state the obvious. This tournament is probably the worse one I've ever played organization wise. - Servers : No dedicated servers, no planning - Stream/casting : No official stream/casting setted up before the beginning of the tournament - Communication : No official discord server (you genuinely thought that using the main global discord channel would be a good idea ?) - Prize pool : You taking 5% of the donations for """future events""" is simply a scam, people can donate for future events accordingly, stop pretending you'll be saving this money for future prize pools. Going on then in twitch chat saying that Europeans didn't "support the players" because they didn't contribute to your scam is also hilarious. - Prize pool distribution : 1st place gets 139.1$ (0.5*78.2+100), 2nd place gets 15.64$. Even though you said it beforehand, it doesn't make it less idiotic. I'm not playing cups or Reflex for the money, but this kind of distribution is not going to attract top players to your tournament. - Administration : Inexistant and disgraceful, not to mention that you spent the duration of the tournament in my twitch chat or the other stream's talking shit about pretty much everything. Yes you will get complaints whatever you do or try to host, most of them are legitimate, this is the internet, you either need to grow a pair or quit (The latter would be the better option in your case). I've hosted 2 major EU tournaments in the past (the second one is the one which you copy/pasted the rules from remember ?) and almost received nothing but positive feedback, maybe there is a reason ? Don't even start ranting about how great you are in real life because no one cares, it was quite funny and pathetic on the discord though. Same goes for your degenerate brother Thump4. On a positive note, I enjoyed playing against some of the NA guys, was good fun even with my ping, thanks to everyone that signed up and congratz to Necrophag1st !
