as a """boomer"""" I hate the fact I have to join a new discord server for like every god damn tournament to know whats even going on but that's just me
****ing this

I wouldn't mind if GTM weren't the only place to go for RA2 if I didn't have to go on a scavenger hunt to find the other ones. I swear the OW and PWS servers aren't public and they're apparently the most thriving places for RA2. I could be wrong by now (since I last checked) but I just can't be arsed to check and go on said scavenger hunt. I don't know how the current community puts up with it.
pretty much anyone who is remotely active and not a complete idiot/reject/boomer  is on those servers (which tbh theres only like 2 or 3 major ones)

i think there's an argument that invite only policies hurt the community in the long run, but i don't see this changing anytime soon as most people support them as a necessary evil to keep the community somewhat sane (which i tend to agree with to an extent)

What sort of time commitments are involved?

This is what I meant by "I dunno how much attention you guys were paying", I just worded it horribly. I have an hour in the morning, an hour at lunch, 3 hours or so at night, and all day Saturday and Sunday. If that's enough time in which to admin the site, then I can at least give it a go. It doesn't seem like much needs doing around here, but obviously I'm not privy to everything going on behind the scenes.
it's less a maintenance thing and more that you're supposed to be a figurehead in the ra2 community (although I think that more comes down to the person than the position itself nowadays). I would prefer that we have more than one active admin  to help even the workload and avoid a potential torv situation where we have no active administraiton

Orc also has expressed interest in taking the role, which I have no qualms with as I feel he would be a good fit as he is well respected and influential member of the community

Short and sweet: 09 and I have no longer have interest in being a part of the active administration are probably gonna join hoppin in the river 

If you want to step up, then now's your time. I've asked numerous people who are well respected and upstanding members of the community and they've all said no. y'all love to contribute opinions on where this site should be heading, so now's you're chance lead it there yourself. also, 09 and I will probably remain on temporarily to assist with the basics of editing the forum until the new admin/s can get the hang of things (or you can just ping one of us when you want stuff done, that'll probably be easier for everyone)

If nobody suitable wants to take the positions, then we'll probably just give it to kix since he was the only one who said yes ( not that he was given a serious offer)

Mocking unpopular metas is a nice way to reinforce why we're considered a clique.
and stock and dsl-s are universally regarded as being the """wrong""" way to play the game outside of gtm. people are well aware of the elitist history behind those metas

regardless, it's going to to be ironforge hw.

also woke news: in true zoomer style we now have a server https://discord.gg/nYn9FS

Will this tournament be DSL - IRL? And I think, that commentary would be nice.
just gonna say, if it's only like a 60/40 spilt in favor of 3 irl divisions then we're probably going to go with 3 different metas. irl is still being included, and I think more people would be happy with a stock/if division than being bummed out about there not being an irl lw/mw/cw division

the weight classes will most likely be hw for all 3 metas as its the only remaining one left for stock and if, and sub hw is aids for IRL
there's 3 different divisions, the most popular one is going to be dsl irl

alright so the poll isn't finished, but it looks like the 3 metas will be stock hw (unrealistic), ironforge hw (standard), and dsl 2.2 (irl)

as for irl rules: would people prefer the 2/4 or 4/6 meta? which ever one passes will be slightly modified to a little more encompassing in terms of weapons, but it'll still. be familiar to those who play IRL

it's either time to move on, or time to let someone come through and really shake this place up in the biggest way possible.
I've said it before, but if someone wants to take over running gtm then none of us have really any issues with it

one thing i really wanted was a more diverse leadership in regards to community representation (as in somebody from pws,ow, and whatever else the other big servers are). obviously I don't want to force taking an administration position on anyone, but I think it could be a step I'm the right direction

« on: September 02, 2019, 05:23:02 PM »
can it be called DSL: IRL or something instead of dsl 2.2 ce just so they arent both 2.2 and confuse those poor rando new dudes

also everything sounds good to me chief



2.1 beaters?
:confused: :confused: :confused:
i mean, i can just remove the base 2.2 file from the downloads section and just have it somwhere else so noobs don't download it

but sure whatever that works

One thing I personally want to see in this update is new Replicas, but since this isnt a major update (Like DSL 2.2) that probably wont happen.
me too man

also if this doesn't get any feedback (which it won't tbh since people cba to actually give feedback on ra2 related stuff ) I'm just going to implement everything that's listed - fixing the colored beaters

Public Tournament Discussion / POLLS ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED
« on: September 02, 2019, 07:56:57 AM »
Effective immediately, polls are no longer required to start a tournament

they really make no sense with the current setup of the tournament section, and anyone can already just host in the personal tournament section and skip the entire approval system

Yes the entire tournament system could use a revamp, however it's not as easy as it seems as we don't want to make it too restrictive and scare what few tournaments we have left into hosting off-site. the main goal would probably be to encourage off-site hosts into opening their tournaments up to the gtm community.

Modifications / dsl 2.2 CE update
« on: September 02, 2019, 05:22:23 AM »
it's been talked about for awhile so might as well get it over with

100% getting added :
-Colored typhoons and beaters
-Colored bars
-Colored drums
-Centered betas
-the correct skinned frenzy hammers


things already released but open for discussion:
- dsl 2.3 npcs
- non-damaging wedglets (technically not permanently released, but I've sent them to like 5 people so)
- mine/kix's colored mini wheels
- whether or not we should restore the colored beaters to the default 2.2 level or use the default beater buff
- locked npc motors
- disk covers
- include redace's AI pack

things that haven't been publicly released but shown:
- wedgelet fix to make them 30cm
- separating wedglets into non-damaging wedges and damaging chisels with a blunt edge
- updated teeth col meshes
- updated omni with improved srimech detection
- remove edge damage from replica disks (technically they'd be classed as having 1 normal so they should get a x2 buff but obviously that's not gonna happen)
- give steel and ti 1, 3, 5 their correct strength values

yes, it'll cause issues with people not updating their game, but we already have this issue en mass anyways
