Also, I forgot to turn this on for FFA/Tourny/Team restarts so right now it's just taking effect on Express and Alliance.

Sorry for the inconvenience!


Uhm,. your statement doesn't make sense.

You first say "it'll [restart bonus] will be on again for this round of Alliance", but then in your next sentence you say "so right now it's taking effect on EXPRESS and ALLIANCE".

Which is it?
Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.

Is it possible to apply the new changes (removal of restart bonus) now in Alliance server since there is no war happening at the moment?

Yeah seems like the complaint last set was that there was a planned war and an unplanned change, now there is no planned war and a planned change. Down with the restart bonus!
If you give a man some fire, he'll be warm for awhile. If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

I would assume it is possible since he refereed to it as a 'toggle' meaning it can be turned off or on at any time. Also he turned it off during the set last round but then turned it back on; once again like a 'toggle'.

Thats my guessing for the day!

Since we're only a few days in I decided to re-enable the restart bonus. Restart bonus is now disabled for Alliance/Express and all other servers will get the full change suite on rollover (someone remind me if I forget again please).

Sorry for all the wishy-washy change timelines -- things have been crazy IRL with the holidays and visitors and stuff.

thanks pang :)

dont know how youve coded it but ideally you could have it set like:

dropdown for changesets overall
and individual overrides or addendum on servers
and a current set changeset stored per server
that is only changed when the server resets unless you decide otherwise

include things like how many bots you want on each server
and which bot script you want it to run

No I'm talking about an active mod who follows the server to make a suiciders restart a different color in-game

If it was used during a legit war that would be bs
