Although I'm no more an online virgin I'm still pretty tight

Postby alkis21 » Sun Apr 08, 2007 10:41 pm

I had my first Kaliera games tonight and I loved them!

First I played with Steve, it was my first online game ever so he patiently guided me through the process. We found a server where my ping wasn't that bad and started a game. We had a flawless 50FPS... and I got hammered 3-0! Second game wasn't better, and I lost 4-1! It will get me a while to get used to it, the (almost negligible, but not exactly) delay causes me to miss all my headers and most ball interceptions.

Later on, I played with the man who put this old together, Karsten (Redhair). Although he's mainly a Sensible Soccer player, I didn't play much better and only managed 2-1 and 3-1.

I can see I will get addicted to this! I can't wait for our first online tournament. I bet other can't wait either as it will be their first chance to beat me heavily! :twisted:

Come on people, we need more players!

I'm assuming from this that we'd say it's not suitable for ranked tournaments then?

You are assuming correctly. Considering that two players can have different pings=> different delays, a fair game cannot be guaranteed.

No guarantee, but take turns finding a good host and compare pings.. or something.

I was wondering, how can you see a server's IP?
All I see is server names like "Nintendo Maniacs"... if I want to tell someone to join that server, where do I get the IP from?

I think regulary online tournaments would be much better practice for us all in anticipation of the offline Championships.
Perhaps Durban could restart a seperate online rankings? We could then compare who's good online and who's better offline.
I think thats how they do it on ss.de. Offline is seperate to Online.
