What do you guys think? Is there any chance that Savage Rez can still be saved?

I think it has about the same chance as a cataclysmic event (like the one that killed the dinosaurs) happening within our lifetime.

It's great to see you haven't lost your fine touch with the analogous comments mate Wink

Best moment...when you jump on _K_'s head to dodge the swing and then secure the kill, hilarious and great tactical ingenuity! Well done.

inside the game ..

Are you pressing the assigned "screenshot" button in savage (not sure what the default is but I always had mine set to F9) or are you just pressing the "print screen" button on your keyboard? The print screen button does not by default capture a screen shot in savage.

Ok i will send pm to him ...

About screenshots you know something ??

Are you taking screenshots inside the editor or inside the game? If you are taking them in the editor they will be going here instead:

Hi everyone, just checking in, I have been super busy with real life (started a new tea bar with my sister) and thus anything relating to online has been put on hiatus. I don't doubt you will all survive without me as basically you already were. Best of luck and happiness for the future everyone.

Yeah I think they knew that. All I could gather from Google Translate is that it may have originally been minix, and by a guy named Street or Chopper (?)

I don't know if that belief prevails, if you look at the map minix


You can see that lololol claims the reverse is true, that it is in fact an adaptation of the kinix map. As lololol was from memory a Japanese player that migrated to the EU I think his opinion probably carries weight. The comment is also time stamped back in 2010 when the jp server was still active, and the map was uploaded about a week after I onlined kinix.

Additionally I had a little dig around in both maps and while it is by no means conclusive, minix shows signs of having an amateur make minor terrain modifications rather than building a map from scratch, while in contrast kinix looks like someone has made it from scratch using the height clipping tool or from a height map import. Which is consistent with the assumption that minix was a remake of kinix.

So it turns out that this wasn't a one off. Basically there is an on-going thread (sort of like the video game generals on 4chan) which has been running for over a year about this game within the JP community. Not too active but after I pm'd a japanese player about the Kinixxx author it looks like they discussed it.

Feel free to take a look:

Just to clarify, you should be asking them who made kinix not kinixxx as that is the version I named the map after adding occluders and basic textures/paint.

Aneurysm, I would ask you for a video if anyone ever had 40% flux, but let's face it. You're assuming things.

And nobody else has 40% blaze. Lots of people try to counter me with freeswing. It can work. It can fail too. Many elec legos have been burned down trying. I mix up melee and blaze too.

And HELL YES Haika. When the trans-Atlantic internet gets upgraded, and I have 60 ping...Europe will taste the power of Fairy Tail!! 60% blaze. Back to insta-fodderizing legos from inside axe range. Faster more accurate melee. Back to back temp hits. Able to block on T1 reliably again...

I am assuming nothing. Before ex2 died a miserable death the clansavage stats recorded all players accuracy % for all weapons over the lifetime of their account. 40% was the standard benchmark that separated the wheat from the chaff. Many could shoot in the mid 30's but "pros" (and god do I use that word loosely) were able to shoot at 40% + with flux and other spray type weapons. Sharp shooters like coil over 50%. In all honesty, shooting something like tempest where you only have humans to aim at you should be reaching figures of 65% consistently and if you are not, then you are just not doing it right.

The simple fact is, you're not really as special as you imagine yourself to be.

Sorry dude.

A far better and more natural looking approach is to just use a 64 x 64 sized map but fill in the edges of the map with rolling hills/high walls to make the actual passable terrain a small 32 x 32 section in the middle of the map. This means that you can do a lot more visually with the edges of your map rather than the standard 300 units high vertical wall that has stretched textures and completely breaks the suspension of disbelief. If you look at a map like xr_unkani it applies this technique.

This is why I > you
Your 20% Flux accuracy * 240dps = 48dps
My 40% Blaze accuracy * 450dps = 180dps

Err... anyone who "claims" to be a "pro" while shooting a flux at 20% accuracy should consider a different career path. Honestly if you can't shoot ALL weapons over 40% and sharp shooters at +50% then you really shouldn't be taken seriously. Secondly, any decent human worth a lick of salt will use positioning to hamstring your range, the effectiveness of blazes accuracy tapers off the further you are from the target so I assume that you are probably just using your leap/stamina to close into very close range of the human where you can utilise your blaze to its fullest. That in turn provides a smart human player with two counter options, one is to aggressively freeswing you as you have now closed your range with the player while also using up your stamina and secondly is to use stamina to run/jump themselves out of range to exploit the range weakness already covered.

Of course using immobs is a possibility as Daemon and others have mentioned, but then you are really just opening yourself up to the opposing player switching out ammo for mines and punishing you for forcing a close ranged battle, or if you blah blah blah blah etc etc ....strategy

TL;DR if you are good, you're good, if you are shit you're shit, calling out players or weapons is retarded.

Sadly there are limits to latency due to the speed of light. But you could probably still halve it with good routing at the beginning (ISP) level, and more cables globally.

Worm hole internet connections - Someone put a patent on that shiz

arent you the person who killed aus.i mean kicking everyone from the server for a week must have hurt aus community.

I'm certain that a bright spark like you Grapist is clever enough to deduce an obvious lie in an attempt to defame. So the question then remains, why perpetuate it? Trying to muddy the waters? Seeking to incite more drama? Please homie, you've got nothing.
Besides, lets be realistic here, even hypothetically speaking if you wanted to entertain the notion, we are talking about something that purportedly happened on a server that died over half a decade ago in a geographical location that is thousands of kilometres/miles from the rest of the world. Hell even the original host of the Savage servers GameArena shut down last year. In short, no one reading these forums cares.

Wasting time is what life is about. We just sit out our given time on this planet and keep ourselves busy till the final curtain falls. How we spent that time won't matter anymore once we're gone. Yet there are certainly some other interesting activities out there than gaming.

I'm jealous of the time that's infront of you Emily. You are young and there's so much planet left for you to explore. Have a nice journey and never forget where you're coming from!

You know sometimes you surprise me Ale, you always act the clown, but every now and then you share an insight that shows you're not just a joker in a pair of floppy shoes  Wink

I have stopped playing in the last few weeks because I am tired of the ping advantage/disadvantage. When I play on US I feel dirty about how easy it is, and when I play on EU I feel handicapped. A lot of people underestimate this but since I have played extensively with pings from 30 to 120, and even a little at 180 and 250, I feel pretty qualified to discuss it. Think of it like this: every tool we use in this game to trick the enemy, like multileaps, looking in certain directions during melee, strafing to avoid ranged weapons, leaping away during a freeswing, waiting for freeswings to punish them, moving backwards to get an easier block, are only as good as your ping is low and your enemies ping is high. Until the global network improves I'm moving to local multiplayer.

I came to the same conclusion years ago when local servers died off here in Australia.
Sure you can compensate to a degree for a higher ping in your play style, but then you really are no longer playing the style of game that is most rewarding and even then I found myself constantly feeling frustrated at the things I was no longer mechanically able to do with a higher ping or alternatively what lower pinged players could get away in spite of our relative skill levels. People who have the privilege of playing on local servers with low ping often don't fully appreciate just how radically the quality of game-play slides as your ping increases. Especially once it starts travelling up over the 200 mark, but realistically you still feel tangible effects in the lower 100+ region as well. Of course once you start going over 250 and beyond it just becomes a crap shoot in terms of playing at all seriously, you have to predictively do everything and even scoring blocks doesn't guarantee a hit before the opposing players stun runs out. Even in reverse the situation is not ideal, I've seen plenty of occasions where for example a beast player has been blocked by a human player not because they correctly guessed the direction of the fake but the reverse, they are so delayed they seek to block the first hit only to land a block on the second because it took so long to react.

I wonder down the track whether this sort of localisation in e-sport will be looked at with faint amusement as the speed barriers are all taken down and the entire world competes in online games in the same market. Would be interesting.

Also locked. This didn't need an additional thread in the first instance and the first one (thread) is quickly becoming a farce at any rate.

This is all great and stuff, but after GrassHopper's ad hominem attack on Emily at the bottom of the OP he lost all credibility with me.

Agreed, this went from being a somewhat legitimate complaint to a mud slinging contest. How can you possibly expect anyone to take a complaint seriously if this is the way you behave?

Might as well lock it before the rest of the "door stops" in this community pile in to represent.
