There should be some sort of rule of max veterans per team. Although didn't we try that in the past as well when league was starting to dwindle? Man, I will never forget 12 vs 12 in its heyday. Or pub with over 100 players at a time. The good old days for sure.

Just telling not a single will have learnt anything in 3 months. They will stare at the kills and deaths, so if you so desperately want to host something, host TCL or something similar.

Also the "vets" we talk about are at most average players and as soon as kemi or tinkles or whoever enters the zone, these "vets" will be murdered just as easily as the newbies.

Do not limit the number of anything... If there becomes one good squad, at least they will blame the players in it instead of the zone staff. If you create rules and one squad becomes superior, as always, they will blame you.

Besides, even if there was a stacked squad, it would give the newbies something to fight for, a goal. Remember how everyone wanted to get into Lego, danger, moni, rh, Grail? I do.

You can host something, you can host a league if you like but do not even consider hosting half a ds league with real DSB gameplay with flagging, bells, etc. no one will have a clue in 3 months. Let them train in the prac arena, and please start some sort of a ladder there.

Protection was so 1337 those first few seasons. The memories.

Point(s) taken though. I'd get murdered by newbies as well. I never was that good, never mind with over a decade of rust.

imo what dsb, and ss, really needs is a new high scores website like the old one. I dunno about you guys but that was what kept my interest in the game when I first started. it's something arcade type games needs. I didn't even get into league almost a year later.

I did ratio whore for awhile back in the day with Zombie to get some amazing high scores for the leaderboard. I don't recall the exact ratio but over 500-0 for sure. So lame, but I remember it for sure.

Yea, I remember Zombie getting like 297-0 in the same ship, no specials reset or anything.

When it comes to ratio, I think I had around 1500-0 once, but I've seen someone beat it.
