Title: Ode to Race!
Post by: Odin on January 09, 2012, 12:55:48 am
(The following is to be read with your best advertising voice)

Dear LXA readers,

Your complaining and whining stops here because we found THE SETTING YOU WERE ALL LOOKING FOR!

I think it was Gaston who discovered this brilliant setting during some late night games last week. After 3 hours of non-stop playing, we had to conclude that we had found the solution for what we all so like to whine about!

Recall the feeling:
- You're playing in this mortar server and you're doing fairly well! Until some idiot decides to take the lower left tunnel for his own...
- You're playing a clanwar and you're pumping your enemies full with lead particles! But he doesn't die...
- You're playing a clanwar and again you're doing fairly well! But your opponent takes some distances and gets his favourite weapon ready: handgun particles kill you while you're still meters away from him... (Can freely be interpreted as chaingun! Don't want to hurt any feelings)

Well, here's your solution:

Race! Race my dears! Race!

Guarantees:
- Hours of fun in different levels!
- Ultra gaming based on the skill in what this game is so well known for: Ninjaroping!
- Compare yourself with the greatest players and beat them in what you do best!
- No camping, running, spamming, lagging and all that you hated before!
- A new racetrack in every level!

May also guarantee, though so far no evidence:
- Hot chicks for the winners!
- Prize money exceeding 10.000 euros! (or dollars, whatever has the highest value!)

Bring Ode to Race!

Halleluja!

Ahh, I remember around Summer 2006 when I was a total newb and visited Ganston's server for racing in Castle Strike. :D

I approve.

Haha yeah, I had forgotten about that but it's true: We played race long before it was an actual setting :D We raced from the bottom right to the top left without the use of ninjarope right? :D

Hey there, been a while! Thanks, hehe, you know you have to make something appealing with a lot of blabla to make it get the attention it should have (Could compare this to your anual Amy's birthday threads).

Well, in the right company this literally guarantees all that is said above. Haven't heard any complaints, but witnessed instead a whole lot of happy faces!
Should come spank my ass with the experience you got from the other games you played, but I will defend myself! Oh yes!  :)

We need to do some kind of race tournament!!!

Couldn't agree more! Perhaps it would be great to have the things Gaston suggested implemented first. Atleast a countdown system would make it one hundred percent fair.
The host has a small advantage of getting an early start, because of the delay.
But other than that it's more than suitable!

btw, if it's not a big hassle to implement, there's a few features for the race mode that could really make it awesome/popular:

- A countdown at the start. Right now it just starts out of the blue
- Possible to not allow ropehooks on other worms
- leaderboard that's always visible during race
- laptime and racetime being recorded.

Yeh, oddly enough CS was also the choice of race level back when we did the ropeless races. I also encourage people to find good levels for race, that takes different types of skillz. Would be great to have a handful of levels that everyone could practice on to have some intense race games.

I find that too big and too open levels are slightly boring. Castle Strike is still quite OK, but levels like Complex and Ore Quarry feel more exciting to me. And Fight Box is really intense.

Snus is also pretty cool in my opinion.

Icedome and Sunrise Mansion were pretty sweet too IMO.

ice dome all the way!
castle strike was too basic.. just had to learn some right pulls and ropes.. fightbox is funny ^^
sunrise mansion is pretty nice... dirt is faster than tunnel!!!
