The allure of being able to change the settings and rules according to your own wishes should be enough temptation to get you to put in effort to have that change come true. More so in contrast to the poorly managed Pulse Server.

However, much like in real life, people that don't vote have no say in the matter and accept the result beforehand, having no right to complain thereafter.

Alright, Trigardon will move it to General. Afro

Next up, do you need (or want) any Newerth cooperation?
Then, have you discussed this with one of the three Server Admins to make a server available?

Are you intending for this to be a competition? Since you posted it in a Competition section.
Or are you intending it to be a for-fun weekly date (which it sounds like)? Then this doesn't belong here and Trigardon will gladly move it for you.
Let us know!

Otherwise, this sounds like a fine idea, get some scheduled PuGs back in to keep the community's available variety fresh.

That is true, if you only flat out nerf siege units, they'd be useless to camp and useless to push out as well.
During the test weeks, they got some things in return - both ballista and summoner had compensations.

Behemoth is the next victim, but even that dreaded unit gets something else in return instead of a flat nerf.

Unfortunately, feedback has been very lacking, so who knows if the compensations properly balanced out the nerf. Wink

Thank you for posting.
Feedback like this will help decide which test changes will return and which discarded permanently.

No, but the requirements to bring a game like Savage onto Steam are steep.
It's a lot more difficult than "just do it".

We can try narrow it down a little; try this altered a-u.exe, it should give you an error code number when it fails like this again.
Place it into: .\Savage XR\autoupdater\

Hopefully this holds some further information.

The only other person to have reported a "elevation" problem is here:
an error came up before the updater could even start that said "this file needs elevation", so i click ok and it exited
http://www.newerth.com/smf/index.php/topic,17660.0.html

Whereas it sounds more like a Windows/PC problem, so Google says:
Google "The requested operation requires elevation"

Which thread did you find that was useless?
10  Savage XR / General Savage XR Discussion / Re: Shuffle Teams vote should be banned on: August 27, 2017, 06:48:14 pm
I suggest voting no on any vote you do not want to pass (that's what I do, often).
There are many votes that I consider too overbearing or too powerful, but the community wanted to at least have a chance to govern themselves without the dependence on refs.

If you collect a few more players' opinions/wishes on this matter, you'll have enough backing to push for this change quickly.
I can easily change it if the playing community desires.
11  Savage XR / General Savage XR Discussion / Re: Shuffle Teams vote should be banned on: August 27, 2017, 10:37:35 am
Even teams vote only evens up the numbers, it can still be stacked thereafter.
And if team numbers are already even, even teams vote isn't going to unstack a thing.

Even teams is not a counter to stacks, it's a counter to outnumbered teams.
The other counter to stacks is the concede vote.
12  Savage XR / General Savage XR Discussion / Re: Shuffle Teams vote should be banned on: August 26, 2017, 05:10:51 pm
There is a reason: Mid-game stacks.

But it can be disabled and enabled by server admins at will; so if that's what you're asking, you'll need to contact them on their respective server forums.
If you're saying server admins should not ever get to choose themselves and you want it to be hardcoded in XR itself, then that is another option.

The current Summoner is likely going to stay for another week.
The Ballista should receive an overhaul (if real life permits) of its current form during this next week.

After that, ballista and summoner are likely to be reverted and tests will focus on the dreaded Behemoth next.

We also have potential Buff test changes and the Newerth poll winners, Chaos Bolt & Chaplain, coming up.

Melee belongs on the first slot; unless a unit doesn't have a melee attack.
Leap and block go along with melee as well, as does the automatic-swap-to-first-slot when you leap or block.
15  Savage XR / Re-balancing Suggestions / Re: Nerfing Siege Camping on: August 14, 2017, 04:04:31 pm
But ballista camping is specifically them staying at base to shoot enemies far away? Huh
Ballistas killing enemies in melee is them actually going towards enemy base, leaving their own camping spot behind.
