I have been getting complaints about the sets in EGDL. I am being told there are too many bricks and/or reps. I would like to know what your thoughts are, but mostly what GMs have to say. Please be reasonable. :roll:

I should also say that the sets in EGDL are the same sets that are in main, -ports and thors.

Using reps offensively is a skill, but unfair on the anch whose only defense against it is to play so passively that they become inefficient. You see games won and lost by reps, anchors getting double, sometimes triple repped, which they can't do anything about.

Reduce them both!
yes, dicrease both.

EGDL followed historically pub settings, so thors, ports and all that stuff was in. Completely opposite tournament was EGFL, which tried to reduce the effect of random powerups.
Now it seems to be stuck somewhere in between, i have no idea why, but i guess its what previous organizers have decided.
Id say either use pubsettings or use egfl settings, i think egfl settings have been pretty much established over the years and they should be fine...

Well, ports are pretty abuseable. Since it's possible to drop them through Anti Warp.. under certain circumstances.

how about we make reps as common as a brick in pub, and bricks as common as thors in pub.

You removed ports and thors? Thats fucking stupid. EGDL was fun because of the luck element these bring, and gives anchors/attackers more threats to use against the other team and more fun it trying to beat the challenges these bring!

It should be Public settings, nothing different.

Go fuck yourselves.

Ports are abusable and can be dropped through anti.

Thors, I could kind of agree with you. However, with being 8 people per freq instead of 10. Having no safe FR. Thors get a bit too powerful.

lol Those settings have been in place for years. The players say they want it based on flagging skills and not on luck of getting a thor, it's what the players want. Like QD said, ports can be laid through anti, so no ports.

If ports are abusable, fine. Ditch them.

But why No thors? Boo-hoo, FR is defenceless, grow some balls! Thats one of the risks with playing the MFR Position! Why make it even more boring for a MFR? Just sitting there watching for a dot then calling a newb. With thors, you can aim them off the radar, with more skill, lets Spec help them too, means the MFR will have to pay more attention. Stop been little pussies about it. I thought this was EXTREME-GAMES not "Oh I'm a bit scared of thors so lets ditch them so its easier-GAMES" Man the fuck up.

Yah... they are scared.

So the zone has been horribly mismanaged over the years... as a consequence of this the zone has lost it's "extremeNESS" theme making it unappealing and the extreme type players have essentially mostly left. The only people that remain are the "non-extreme" type crowd who use to be a minority but now have become the majority by default. Hence why Lady V and other smods suck up to them... give them everything they ask for even if it is detrimental to the actual theme of the zone "Extreme Games". It's akin to children demanding to eat candy and cake everyday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and fulfilling their every wish... even though they dunno wtf they are talking about and it's actually bad for them.

So that's what it is. Nothing gonna change till you have more "Extreme" themed sysops/smods in place. Till then expect more of this status quo scared type players who just want to circle jerk each other and scratch each other's vagina in fixed, rigid, baseduel type format that is based on "Skill" hah. Even though 99% of these players would complete scrubs in 2000 era terms. Playing tournaments against the same 20-30 people for years calling themselves "the best" hah it's really a big joke. The whole thing is really the opposite of Extreme Games theme but yea.

I think Lady V summarized it best as to what the problem with E.G is "because that is what 'the players' want" haha.
