Do not underestimate the power of name in lights.
« on: February 14, 2020, 10:00:36 AM »
I turned kill messages on in the melee arena. They had been turned off do to buffer flooding when we had +400 people in an arena.

My suspension is it will have a significant game play impact.

Can you elaborate on that please, Hitech? What's the difference now compared to the "violator landed 4 kills in a 109g14 of..." or "you shot down "" #4.

If I had to guess I believe all kills are now broadcasted arena wide. I know in Combat Challenge we oops'd that a few times.

A message "x shot down y" is broadcast on every kill. This was how it was before we went into the huge growth spurt.

Thank you!  Should create a nice buzz in the arena.  Much needed.

I remember that well. Also remember how the text went crazy when we had a bunch on.

I always preferred it that way.

Let's hope we get enough players to make it a problem again.  ;)

All important messages will be lost because of those unimportant messages.
