16) Server.War2.ru / Re: Ladder
« on: July 02, 2020, 05:01:16 PM »
Singles ladder works fine, I don't think anyone cares about the teams ladder much. Would be cool if it was fixed though, maybe there would be more decent 2on2s.
Because of the facts of my above post -- I'm not a programmer, and just taught myself to code for a one-time project 10 or so years ago -- I'm not really fit to fix anything with it.  iL cleaned up some of my work when he took over but in the case of the teams ladder disabled some things, some addresses moved and thus broke, and some things were security issues, so now it's been down ever since.

However, my lesson from the days of the 2s ladder is that it is not really a viable project and is not worth the effort to prop it back up.  Because even when it did work, which it did for awhile, it was for more effective just as a curiosity and a huge bloated database for people to look up their records when allying various people than it ever was as an actual team exercise or ranking system.  That was for two main reasons:

1) It logged every two-player combination who played together as a team automatically, but these teams would by default be unranked.  You could also "activate" a team -- someone from a two-player combo would register as captain and make a team page, name the team, decorate the page, add players (up to 4 total), and so on.  I had it crosscheck your IP as you accessed the ladder page with your IP in the bnet database to decide what player you are and whether you have access to activate a particular team (security issue!).

In any case, teams would then move from unranked to ranked when they played 10 games together.  Because there were so many permutations of players and teams ending up ranked, someone actually interested in having a team couldn't easily face off against any of these random two-player teams who ended up ahead of them on the ladder.  People who were actually interested in using the ladder complained.

2) Upon request from TK, I dug back into it and made it so the ladder only ranked formally activated teams.  Now the problem became the opposite: there were only ever a maximum of like 4-5 teams on the ladder.  It was pretty pointless, and once again basically dead.

Pika (Jordan) stole the code from Lance and Blid just takes credit for it. He has no idea how to fix something without breaking it more.
I don't know how you became some broken, Burnt.  Starting at almost zero knowledge, I taught myself enough coding to create that ladder from scratch, spending dozens of hours on it.  It's no masterpiece and I'm not demanding praise for it but to say I stole it and to just pass off completely made up stories as if they're fact is downright poisonous.  If Lance saw the code I'm sure he would quickly distance himself from it, since it's totally amateur and certainly looks nothing like anything he ever created.

yeah wasn't the discussion all about whether everyone is the same person or whatever

We played a lot of onemine.pud and had a good time, honestly. :) Also Picka has posted as Picka for like 10 years so he’s not really a random smurf just now appearing.

And Jordan’s expertise is totally different than Picka’s and he was a complete computer newb when Picka saved the server from being stolen by Lance.

Picka was around back then on the forums, talking to Burnt, and so on. I can’t keep track of Burnt’s theories but I’m sure he remembers Picka being a separate person from us that was battling Lance. Jordan was first learning his assembly language stuff at that time and talked with Picka a lot as he was such a network expert. Jordan also lived nearby me and knew me back to the Heat days, and so we all played together. The fact that you people can take the most mundane comments or circumstances like this, and just stare at them until you start seeing things is pretty incredible.

Jordan was buds with us both. Picka was pretty good btw.

I think I have db access but haven't tested it in quite some time.  If there's something specific you want me to look up I can give it a shot.

Why are so many of you losing your minds?  Why should any of us be the same people?  Do none of you remember all the games we've all been in together for years and years before all these conspiracy theories ever kicked off?

A few quick things: I did make the ladder myself; iL cleaned it up at one point to make it less shitty.  Lance also had an IGL-style ladder (old school ranking formula we both liked) but the guts of the ladders likely function completely differently.  Jordan, Picka and I used to play 3-player FFAs frequently for awhile and we're all different people.  I've met Jordan a few times and have confirmed he isn't me.  Swift is way better than any of us and is another completely different guy that I have little to do with.  I'm inactive now and for the foreseeable future but this is a game I played for years off and on, so I pay for the server and try to keep everyone from losing their minds because I want the community to continue existing.  It's so weird to not even play for about 3 years and still constantly see people coming up with absolutely bonkers theories about myself.

i feel like the more the FED intervenes, the further the market is disconnected from reality... and the further the market gets from reality, the harder the market will react when reality finally sets in. The FED can't pump it forever without serious long lasting consequences. At least i don't think they can.

I think it's going to be a mess when the FED eventually says "ok.. we can't keep doing this. seriously. we're done"
Exactly.  I don't think the Fed will ever actually stop if they can help it, but the whole thing is building toward a massive collapse.

Protestors are animals and deserve to be killed.
This is a genuinely violent, fascistic, and psychopathic mindset.  Sickening.

You have white privilege. You don’t get a say on any of this.
I know you're feeling good trolling here but take a look back at your posts and feel ashamed, please, because you desperately need to remind yourself of your humanity.

He was slowly and brutally murdered while not resisting.  Nothing more needs to be said.

i dont think there will be a second stimulus, and i think the entire economy is a house of cards.  the options are: an even more expansive police state to keep the have-nots subjugated, or a communist revolution.  i hope my input helps you with your portfolio

man I didn't really even play chop and I still always saw him around and joined some of his games.  He was a long-time presence and good guy.  This is a sad loss.
