It's just a continuation of the April Fool's day joke BweS .

Enjoy as I do not think they will change the results as they're usually loathe to alter the data from finished games.

It looks like the Classic Tourney isnt working at all with only 4 or 5 FH games so far.......I think there should have been a Mayday tourneylike last year......Classic should be promoted and sure that theres player who will play it before trying to make tourney i it.Its a good idea but if classic is not played more as it is its not working much......

Shhh. Let it be our little secret, mnemo.

I had to split my score, so I wouldn't look so... dominant. You know.

Yes, I played a 2-player classic game a few weeks back and lost RAW after it froze us out. I'm not really sure what your point is here? Maybe it's hard for you to understand Dolla's post, but GK's stating that it has been difficult for people to find a Classic game for a few days and Dolla was implying this has been happening for YEARS. I felt like agreeing with his post because it does suck that you rarely find any players in the classic room. Any more troll-like comments, Mr. Monk?

Oh. I see. You wanted to be one of the cool kids. Great. Too bad about your raw. That must have really been a crisis. :smt021

1 week left to topple GFips from his 1st place tally of 653 for May so far. Still anyone's tournament/month if players actually stuck around long enough to get FH games going on, AGAIN! :twisted:

Dangerous Beans: great tournament dustin
Dangerous Beans: cant even get into a game
Dangerous Beans: cuz he runs ranked on weekends for a month long raw value
Dangerous Beans: :/


Not to mention I have 0 Classic Raw, I don't even start at 500, so players with <500 Raw will get into a game before I do...

Dustin usually sets some rooms on ranked at the weekends. Sorry DB, there was one 1 FH game you were not in. I tried to change it, but you left ...
I am not sure, but i think for "highest ranked" in classic games it is your global raw, not your classic raw that counts ... (although this does cot change the problem). I will please Dustin to open a permanent separate "cycle" room.

Hmm, that's not my intention. I guess if I used the Classic leaderboard, they would technically count. Although I haven't seen many people actually playing those settings, so I don't think it would affect things much.

I would be encouraging more typical Classic settings.
That is a prejudice. Fact is that the current leaders GFips and George874 played the fast version frequently as well. I did not check all the game history. But for example George874 played 11 classic games in May so far. Five of them were 5,10,15 with the 50% bonus.

What is typical? 5,5,5 classic with no remarkable continent bonus was in the early times. With a bit more support the other extreme might get more popular.

yes i tried some games in the Europe classic host with 50% last month. I don't now the stats, but i don't think i have played many classic games with these settings this month (but if there is a game running i still would join there).
It is just my personal rating, but i myself enjoy the "traditional classic" settings (4,6,8,10,15 / 0%) more. I don't think 50% is so much faster as classic games usually do not tend to marathon much anyways. But i am always open for any new settings/maps/ tries so i think 50% is an legitimate and interesting approach and will also result in fun games. One of the benefits of Lux is and was always that there is so much possible variety (different maps, different settings, ...) for the games.

I would suggest fixing all the BUGS that have not even been looked at. We don't need you to host rooms, just to pretend that you are being here. We need YOU, DUSTIN to FIX all of the Bugs . I am only guessing, but, I don't think any one else can do this except you, Dustin.

Reports keep getting sent in, but, Nothing seems to be fixed. And alot of the bugs , i bet , can be fixed rather simply,,,, if someone just takes an hour or two to do it.

I have been requesting this for months ( and others have been requesting this for YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!! ) now. I hope you would take a little time to do maintainance,,, and stop blowing SMOKE !!!!!!!!!!!

Rooms should NOT continually freeze up. Turns should NOT be continually skipped. People should NOT be continually booted from rooms. Income should NOT be returned to zero if you get booted. There are so many minor issues that can be fixed instead of just sitting and hosting a room. This is why many people are just GIVING UP on the game.

I just don't understand why there is no maintainance.

Please, DO this if you really want to improve this Game. THANKS.
