You really don’t understand how copyright works.

i admitted to as much, but i still don’t think the two things i mentioned are ‘ripping off artwork’. i have been doing my own research on this, but only have come across untouched art/photos as being (easily) subject to copyright. can you point me to something that will explain it?

What are the Chinese gonna do? Extradite the Locojoy executives to the U.S. for trial? LOL

i am procrastinating and this made me wonder what actually would happen; i had zero idea. apparently the Berne Convention (1886) was an international treaty protecting copyright across countries. lots of countries signed, but the US for a long time refused (1989). China has also signed (1992). so there is some sort of legal grounds for such things, even between the US and China, but how effective it is.. well, right. also, i couldn’t find what the recourse would be if there was a dispute (i.e. extradition, or would it be dealt w/ somehow on China’s end?)

years of ripping off artwork from others?

do you mean taking photos of famous people from the internet and reskinning them as zombie commanders? or do you mean the Quad Walker thread where every image was obviously tangentially related to something on the internet? i don’t think either of these things could possibly be considered as ‘ripping off artwork’. maybe i missed something.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Thought Exercise: How can you tell if a matchmaking system is balanced?

PR: that is a rather pathetic cop-out towards some informative links. you need a nap.

Hoschi: good post. one line in the ELO Wikipedia article that i like that seems particularly relevant considering the common distaste for ELO: Performance isn’t measured absolutely; it is inferred from wins, losses, and draws against other players. All systems will have to guess at skill.

fg: the TrueSkill system is quite a good one, though its variations on ELO are specifically meant to handle situations of more people involved than a 1v1. when i looked some time ago i could not find a good write-up on dealing with games that use randomness in fights.

I think ELO is still the most sound approach to any 1v1 competition, even with randomness. However, 1) the K-factor (or something similar) needs to be tuned to make several bullshit losses not too detrimental to the rating, and 2) there should be some way to handle people that preserve their rating by not playing after they’ve pushed themselves up in the rankings w/ a particularly good win streak.

@Pip/SD: Are you guys taking this from their recent silence, or from some other communique you received outside the forum? Considering how little effort they had to put into the Apocalypse pack, it would surprise me a little that they wouldn’t allow the same player-run development effort again. This is assuming that they had not recently been harassed by WMT trolls.

Edit: maybe i have no idea how many hours they worked to get that pack in the game? maybe it’s monday and my brain is a pile of crap already.

@LDV: Good point. Those Dev studios mentioned in the video as ‘doing it right’ were all large ones. I have no way of knowing for sure, but SpryFox is probably the closest in size to Synapse, or was back during their 2011 SteamBirds success.
