Topic: Freefall Tournament / FreeFall Tournament Wiki

Hey all, thanks for all the input and interest. I’m going to let this sit over the weekend before making any final decisions, so if you’re just now seeing this and interested please let me know. Also, just to clear up a bit of confusion, the wiki is set up right now so that anyone can post/edit etc… The main reason we need to get a few official people is to help make the Wiki user friendly, and make sure that changes made are appropriate and not incorrect information/spam/trolls. That being said, if you’re visiting a page and see something incorrect, or something you can improve on then please make the change! That’s how wikis work after all :)

Wiki’s are meant to be a community effort where people with a shared interest can come together and produce a resource for something they enjoy. If you think anyone is making money off wiki pages (besides maybe those who built the site and host it etc…) then you’ve probably lost site of its purpose. Also, the Wiki hasn’t been publicized too much, I haven’t pushed it since it’s mostly outdated information right now, once we get it relevant hopefully it can be something to point players to when they have questions.

Most likely it will be Generals in the game who are chosen, however, if you’re not someone I know (or a General) I’ll need to see evidence of work you’ve done on another game Wiki to really consider you, otherwise decision will most likely be based on people I’ve played with and know.


Thanks!


Such stupid. youd better choose whose know all about wiki not i you know him or generals it doesnt matter hes a gen or you know him.just choose whose know most about the wiki. THINK WHAT YOU WRITE.

I know BrainsOptional did a good job responding to you, but I have to say this. I did think carefully about what I wrote, and was trying to be upfront with people on how I’m trying to handle this. The point is to get experienced people into admin positions that can filter the edits other people make. The reason I would like it to be people I know is simple, we don’t need someone on there who is going to be on a power trip, or troll the forum once given access to the admin side of things, so I would like to know what kind of person I’m giving access to. Please avoid the personal attacks next time you decide to post.

Why was my post removed? I realized i accidentally posted 3 posts so I posted them all back into a 4th post and deleted the 3rd. And it was a suggestion about the wiki & an offer to help _

Not anymore I’m not gonna help.

Falconlight, Not sure why your post was removed, but if you would like please PM me your suggestions!

Topic: Freefall Tournament / FreeFall Tournament Wiki

This has been a long time coming but I’ve been MIA due to work and lack of a decent computer. Anyways, after seeing the post below about someone messing up the Wiki we need to get the wiki updated and under control.

So I need a few people who are familiar with FreeFall Tournament and preferably at least one person who is familiar with Wikia. Although I founded the Wiki I don’t have a lot of time to oversee it or update it, so if you’re interested please post on here why you’re qualified, I will keep an eye on this thread, and if you’re chosen I’ll PM you.

Most likely it will be Generals in the game who are chosen, however, if you’re not someone I know (or a General) I’ll need to see evidence of work you’ve done on another game Wiki to really consider you, otherwise decision will most likely be based on people I’ve played with and know.

Thanks!

Originally posted by untellable:

I just played in a game that I think serves as a good example for why we need some amount of segregation between skill levels, like a couple rooms fr lft. and up. It was a mostly full game in the shuttle, with me and a bunch of low rankers, I think the highest was like lft. The game lasted 10 minutes, and ended with a score of 1000 to 56. Now usually when I play I focus on capturing, but since this was an easy game I just ran around as gunner(I actually ran around not sitting and sniping), and I don’t usually focus on kills, but at the end of the game I had 40 kills, 0 deaths, and 9 assists. In a game that lasted 10 minutes. An average of 1 kill per 15 seconds, with no upgrades. I’m surprised that most of the other team didn’t quit, considering they were getting mowed down and barely even touched the capture point. Though I can’t pretend I won the game entirely by myself, I still felt it wasn’t fair to the other team, and I would like to be in a game where I can be challenged without having to carry the team, and it’d also be nice to have challenging games that when you lose them, you feel it’s because the other team was very good and not because several players in your team were hiding in the base or uselessly walking around. There would only ned to be a few of these high ranking rooms but I think they would be popular.

I second this. A few high rank rooms and a few low rank rooms would be good… I feel bad just destroying anyone Lft. and lower, I would rather see people have a chance to enjoy the game and get better before being forced against high rank players and getting discouraged. There should still be rooms that allow all ranks, but a little variety based on rank would be nice.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / April 25, 2013 Build Update Notes

While I agree there are things that need improvement, I think the idea of rolling it back would be a step in the wrong direction. The truth is, the game is much smoother, and it opens the door to other gaming platforms which means more new players. One of the good things about the FreeRangeGames team is they are very willing to improve upon the game and listen to players which is evident to anyone who’s been playing the game very long. Is it different? Yes. Is it perfect? No. Will it get better? Absolutely! I think this was a step in the right direction. Congrats on the update FRG I look forward to what you have in store!

When I died to Josh’s supressor shockwave IN AN ACTUAL game. I mean, how many people have actually been killed by that?

Well when the game first came out the shockwave was SUPER strong… If it didn’t kill you, it would at very least throw you out of the shuttle and across the freaking map. I hated it, but it was awesome.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Paying to respawn.

I originally wasn’t too keen on this… Until I played a few moonbase matches yesterday in which it was 1v2 and 2v3 (me on the former) matches and a few rocket spammers kept buying instant respawns. I may have kept them from capping, but I wasn’t able to cap by myself, it was just super annoying really long games.

Or you could hoard all your money like I am for the next big update after this one :P

Well, since I bought all the weapons I still have 4 new classes to cash in whenever they’re released… But you’re right I’ll prolly horde incase it comes in handy for something else.

I agree!

i see only on problem.

I’m assuming you mean one problem… Personally I see more than one problem with just this sentence…

Originally posted by zaroono:

the weapons/classes are overpriced.could you try lowering the prices

There are no individual weapons to buy, only classes you can unlock permanently. Classes are on a 4 class rotation per day so you get to play every thing this game has to offer at different times. Beyond this it only costs 10,000 cash to unlock a class permanently! It only takes winning 100 matches to unlock any class of your choice permanently, that’s next to nothing assuming you don’t waste your money on respawns.

Originally posted by zaroono:

or upping XP gain to several hundred to several thousand a match?

If you haven’t played the game long enough to figure out you don’t buy classes with XP you buy them with in-game cash or Kreds then you probably shouldn’t be making complaint threads. XP is what decides your rank, if you inflate it where people get 209387410987409823748097 XP per match it becomes pointless.

, provide badges and acolades which can give XP bonuses

If you would spend 5 minuets around the forum reading you would see that this has already been suggested and will most likely be implemented in the future.

Originally posted by zaroono:

its just too hard to buy stuff!

Just play the game and you will be able to afford things in no time! It’s as easy as clicking on the “purchase” button.

Originally posted by zaroono:

another thing. kill auto aim. has anyone ever played tribes? you move faster than in this game, but there is no auto aim. the noobs who use it should get off the game.

This is NOT tribes, so don’t expect it to be tribes. As Speaksofsilence mentioned because of the play style of the game the auto aim is an important factor to the game… That being said, you will fire more rapidly and do more damage without auto-aim. So feel free to not use it and pwn all those “noobs” who use it and should get off the game.

Last but most certainly not least there is a suggestion thread stickied above. http://www.kongregate.com/forums/144-freefall-tournament/topics/264392-suggestion-box?page=53 I see you’ve already posted there but felt it necessary to post here as well. Stop with the redundancy.
