    SSCU Trench Wars Project Proposals

    Please check this document. I'm looking for feedback on various project ideas involving both staff organization and general gameplay.

    All ideas and comments welcome. Please post in this thread.

    5. Advertise Newsletter / Social on Map
    - If socials will be added to map, I would say darken them. The bright white on black contrast is over-powering.

    10. SSL
    - Should be high and part of the vBulletin upgrade/trenchwars.com process. Browsers are becoming less and less happy with non-SSL and also with weak SSL sites.

    11. TSL Rebrand
    - I always thought of the S in TSL as Single or Solo, since you are just added to a team and it is focused toward single player.

    12. Pub Jackpot Prize (Going to post some additional thoughts about pub game play improvements here that I am thinking of)
    - I am a fan of dropping the best-of-5 series.
    - I like the idea of adding the jackpot to the top right.
    - Should be additional warp area in base for 3rd and 4th team (maybe private freqs with 5+ people would qualify as a private team). I'd like to see terr's portal reset somehow prior to a game start.
    - Some kind of auto-shuffle of teams more often (3+ wins maybe?)
    - Not much of a fan for private freq multipliers, if anything I think a multiplied should be activated for the public team. My thought here is that you would encourage people to abandoned less-skilled players.
    - Maybe 5% of each pub jackpot is saved up for the "Super Jackpot" match-up that can take place? Have a scheduled time when that game is "activated" as an in-game event.
    - Another idea I had for public is to bring in games like hunt or rabbit into the pub arenas. Once an hour hunt activates with a prize pool based on the players. You type !hunt or !rabbit to activate yourself as playing. Maybe it would be a rotation with kill-o-thon. I can type up more on this if needed.
    - DUELS: If players are bet on and a pay-out if given, it would be awesome if the winning player in the duel got a small % of the bet too. Lets say Player A vs Player B happens. There were bets placed and Player A wins. Player A gets 5% of the winnings as an bonus (taken out of the payout to the winning bet -- basically a cut goes to the player)
    - DUELS: Should be allowed to have duels to 10 and to 5.
    - RPS: Seems to be pretty busy lately. Can we make RPS challenges a public message or have a chat for RPS open challenges?

    Might come up with more, I'm half asleep

    Reading this made me think this game might have a future after all. Great job and more importantly good luck implementing it.

    Suggest bump up the pub jackpot display some priority .

    I have a really good project proposal lol. Please hear me out.

    So it started one day in pub when me and my buddy, Poid, were LTing. He came up with this genius idea but couldnt think up a name for it. We brainstormed for months just thinking of a good name for it and finally decided on one.

    Ladies and Gentleman...I present to you years of hard work from Poid and it will be launched this upcoming Tuesday!!!!!!!!!!!!

    For anyone who remembers Distension, there was a powerball game played inbetween basing rounds, where goals scored counted for a lot more points than they did during the basing game. Maybe add a feature like this for inbetween pub basing rounds. It could simply be about scoring on the goal in base, where a goal is worth something like 1k pubbux per player on team. Another option would be making the 2 safe zones at the far left/rightends of the map into a goal for each team, i.e. freq1 could only score on the left side. The ball seems somewhat useless at the moment so maybe this would make it more actively used and interesting.

    Its not my idea but I rly think it's worth a test for a weekend or 2. Replace default arena with something like elim or wbduel that is super straightforward for complete newbies from steam. During this test still keep current pub around (with notifications that its still there) as subarena for those that prefer that game type.

    I like the idea of using the ball for something during pub rounds. Maybe you can multiply your prize by being the first to score a goal inbetween rounds. As soon as the round ends the ball resets and warps to a random point, and everyone can rush to be the first to score and win the 2x. It sounds like it could be quite frustrating though and the goal would get crowded, probably meaning that the person to receive the bonus simply got lucky.

    There could be a separate part of the map that all players (excluding duelers and levs) get warped to for a mini game involving the ball.

    Or it happens around the left/right safe zones, as you suggested.

    Could be fun. Let's think more.

    A while back (last Xmas?) we had a two goal system going, active between rounds only. It may even have warped people to spawn after round end. (Left side/right side for 0/1 would be better, maybe, with everyone else warped to spawn or south.) Was somewhat successful, though it was hard to get people to understand what was going on, and sometimes disrupted the base game.

    Many people did enjoy it, especially those from outside TW who missed powerball games.

    The ball currently exists as a kind of relic from that time. It doesn't have much of a point until it gets charged up. Does still give some $, though, and occasionally offers a jackpot after a round's end.

    Maybe we could try the two goal thing again for the Xmas map. Code should still be working OK.

    Add an assist ranking for Javs and base. I think those players who focus on team play i.e. in Javs bullet so others can get kills are vastly underrated and certainly could do with recognition. Should be simple enough, if you hit an opponent and it dies within 5 seconds of that hit by someone else, count it as an assist (worth half a kill for mvp purposes).

    Good idea
