What do Good players really need?
« on: May 05, 2009, 07:55:29 PM »
Yea, Mil0 talked about that in a post some place this days....

That sounds good, i think some elite players need a place to have fun with ppl that care as much as they do about this game.
It doesnt mean that those same guys will not play friendly games with the ppl that just want a good time... but if Elite players have the choice they may not disturb the rest... the majority.

Here we have only the Elite players posting, but it's only a small part of the league. That special league could be played by about 50 players maybe... the rest of us (maybe i am wrong because i talk for me) just look for some fun and is about the rest of the league ... maybe 300 players...
So who is disturbing who??

Elite players have a need... pls give them what they need so they can stop pinging around :P and can start giving advice...

I'm not sure a separate league for "elite" players is practical or will even solve the issue you have presented.  Good players already have the top 20 list to themselves.

When DTA gets threw recoding the basic league system, we can then move on to coding new rankings for the individual game types...and of course removing OCC from the cton HoF.

I think if we need more events for the really good players the solution to that is to host some "elite only" tournaments, they can be any style that is wanted, ie 1v1, multi-round ctons, teamers etc.  But limited to the top 50 or 100 players or perhaps we could use a skill level like anyone at or above 1700.

If someone has a good idea for an elite only tournament, let me know and I would be glad to run one on a weekend.

CS

Canuck ask for some propositions to your needs here.... so guys, please express what you really need ands lets try to find out... maybe that help us all.

Definately true I think, some players are so angry on here (yelling at other players, noobs, etc) I think we all know who they are, and the reason.

French players generally are very happy and dont yell when a noob teamate dies, etc.  I guess you guys dont have a problem in this area. 

I think there is a 2nd part too- some people maybe had a hard time growing up and were made fun of- and they can unleash their anger because they finally feel they are superior in some way.

meanest players= tough childhood (and maybe still tough social time now)+ no sex= [insert assholes name here]
Once upon a time, there was a powerful and surprising rush.  In the end that humiliation motivated me way more than anything else could. (TMB)

i have change the name to see if an elite or 2 show up... :D

I dont want to make a psico analisis about the good players but i have read in several places that some players need more competiton.
The ladder is not exclusive enoght and too many noobs around...

What i understand is that some good players have some needs and the ladder didnt get to solve that need.
Maybe that is why they cry around from time to time.  :P

So what is it exactly? a to 20 tourney? an Elit CCC? what can CS and his guys do to make those noicy guys happy?

I have nothing against them but i think if they get relaxed and well recognized, they may contribute more to the general league, and the rest of the 300 "noob" players start to show up.

Serously guys you really have a need?

Well, we can make some educated guesses as to why the Frenchies seem to be happier in games, and a lot of it may have to do with Sex. I mean, Frenchies don't have the requirements that many others in the world have regarding what they seek in a mate.

For example, I like my date to be clean, groomed, skinny, attractive, human and of the opposite sex, Frenchies have none of those requirements for their dates, and they do seem to be happier most of the time. I guess it pays to keep your options open.

I think good players really need a kick in the pants, and to get their bruised butts into the CCC (I'm talking divorce the wife, sell the kids to make it!) - which caters well for their condition (called head fatter then brain syndrome ;))

Any tournament with multiple rounds will eliminate the noobs of the day, leaving the best & luckiest in the finals!   Exclusion by rank is not necessarily a good idea as you may still get noobs, and miss out on some better players..

And everyone who plays this game really needs more sex - ffs chill out :P

Take off the Previous nics in your account. When a player changes his nic its ussually because he wants to be annonymous. This would work great when we implement the double nic accounts.

You're working on nick # 10 or so now, right, Marr? The anonymity doesn't work for you though, we all figure you out.  ;D
