Overtime / Last Chance!
« on: November 08, 2008, 06:25:22 pm »
I had this idea for like 2 weeks and I've been thinking about. A little scenario, INF match, point limit is 100, theres 5 sec. left on the clock, the points are 90 for blue and 75 for red, and lets say that "Major" on red team captures the black flag and the clock runs out before he can reach the white flag, but the game continues until the black flag is returned to the blue base or until it reaches the white flag. Normally it would be the blue team's win but since the red team scored its their win.

Just wanted to know what did you guys thought about it

Edit: This would be optional

Like an overtime kind of system? I like the idea, as long as it's an optional thing. F12.

Yeah I like this idea too, it's sorta like extra time. But does this only apply if theyre losing or winning, this could waste time if you know what I mean.

It only applies if the flag is out of the base. Could probably add an overtime timelimit, too.

I like this, if only because it promotes trying to the bitter end.

Great idea. Of course, would need to be an option, and have a max overtime value.

Gotta hate those moments where you work your butt off surviving it to back to base only to be a smurf meter away from white flag at time end.

Optional Overtime? That would be excellent. F12

A maximum overtime value? Hmm, a bit flawed in a certain sense - A flagger is bound to be slowed down by enemies and may keep passing the flag around, and somehow, if the flag is not returned, then just before he caps, the overtime limit expires and the game ends? It's kind of pointless to add another time limit to a time limit. This is particularly a problem in much bigger maps or maps that are difficult to move around in, which would either make the flagger have to travel over long distances or be hindered by the map's many obstacles. At the same time, we wouldn't want the annoying thing whereby the flagger purposely stays in one spot and either never cap or caps at the last minute. Could there be a better system?

Cool idea (F12) - as you said, until the flag is either returned or capped
Optional - yess
Include a poll please?

Good idea, F12. And yes, it should be optional.

Snake, can you add a poll and maybe change topic's title please?
Some people don't read threads with non-descriptive titles like this one, and it would be a pity because this idea is good...

Ok, what about Capture The Flag (ctf), say its a draw 6 - 6, and Alpha has Bravo's flag does this rule apply to it? Also, maybe add overtime or extra time if it's a draw in ctf, would make it more epic AND when it's in Overtime, when you press F1 for the scores it should show in the time left slot, OT: 2 Mins etc. Tell me if you like this idea.

I'd say it applied for any would-be endgames, but with a pending flag.
But then again, you wouldn't have those epic end game shots where the dude's right next to the flag.
That's why the optional bit is good
Yes, you should know how much OT is left

From ideas to implementation... include a poll pleaseee!!

It's not overtime - it's LAST CHANCE (that should be the name of the option)
Can't think of anything original to put here...

That's a really good idea, me thinks. I support it.

Also, I suggest you add a poll, mate.

It looks like Snake drops in only occasionally :)
Because of this and because many people asked for a poll, and it is also a guideline of this board to add polls, I think you don't have to wait for Snake and add a poll yourself, echo_trail.

It's not my thread, and generally I won't add one. however, as you pointed out, he seems to be here only occasionally(as opposed to the rest of us who have nothing better to do than sitting here at all time). Poll added.
