(1) AI is always dumb anyway. It probably does get extra cash w/o harvesting it.

(2) You don't need multiple war factories or barracks. They don't increase build speed (unlike with RA2). If you think you'll lose one, you can build a backup, but that's the only advantage.

Taking caps out of names has no pros, and some cons. For example, I like my name to be all CAPS since it is an acronym.

7 out of 10. That seems a little extreme to me. And isn't god Olaf? At least, god is the one that is ubiquitous in XWIS screenshots that Olaf posts. If so, that's pretty good, Olaf would be disqualified by his own rule.

This rule needs to either be abolished, or the percentage needs to be increased to something like 20%. Don, you said that if a person played a normal QM month that they would not have any map more than 12% of the time, but that is incorrect. If you play a low number of maps, say, 30, and have a very high winning percentage, you could be top ten. But if any map has come up 4 times when you play 30 games, you are disqualified from HOF. Maybe if you play 100 games, it is extremely unlikely that one map will come up more than 12% of the time, but maybe not everyone wants to play 100 games. If you played 30 games, you would probably easily be in the top ten at the end of the month if your record was something like 27-3. Yet, even if you had played only QM, you might be disqualified because some map happened to come up 4 times.

In Topic: Patch Xcc 1.02

14 October 2003 - 04:25 PM

The game designers don't care anymore. If they did, we wouldn't need XWIS.

Don said ST has NOTHING to do with the patch, so how does ST makeit the OFFICAL board to tallk bout these things if the patch isnt even supported here. there is no official board dont talk out of ur ****.

Did you know that this is the board about all things XCL and XWIS? And this happens to be the suggestions forum, which is why this thread is here: it is a suggestion. I don't know anything about Don saying ST has nothing to do with the patch, but Olaf told meselfs that a patch could be implemented after XWIS gets popular. And besides, this is just where the thread got started, and it continues here. You might notice that it goes back quite a while (for one thread).

I am not, in this post, giving my opinion as to whether you are right or not, but...

Whoever thought this idea up is a ****!

Wow, now we're convinced that you're right... :rolleyes:
