An Irish Blessing
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again.
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

It is usually 7 pm CST. And it will be on the LDA DDM server. Don't forget the clan maps either.

1) We had very low turnout. Make it ranked only once a month and it's more likely certain absent persons will show.

2) The maps were horrible. Please take out the horrible.

Just a thought. Good job Harm. Ntus to the Devil.

Very cool Ras…thanks for the screen shots. By the way Ras, are you still keeping the score of the ranked DDM and Clan matches?

As for your other questions, let it stand for now Ras. The reasons are:

- There was little time to advertise this Ranked DDM. No one had done any post for it until Friday evening when we had gotten back from vacation.
- Give it time. Players want to rank more often. They need a reason to get excited about TM every weekend.
- The schedule is new. The players need time to get use to the schedule.
- It is August. There are more people on vacation now, then any other month. I suspect that the turnout will be low in August.

What would help are other players getting the word out. ICQ the player who you know will come. I did my part and ICQ'ed players.

Here is the deal Ras. If things do not change by the end of September then we will make changes.

That's all good and well. And I'm glad to see that "we", whoever they are, have made those decisions. But what's your excuse for not taking the suckiness out of the sucky map rotation? :^P

The stats have been updated to reflect the last two ranked DDMs.

YOINK
KURPLOWZA

I won't admit to having made the changes because I told Coax I wouldn't and I meant it! :^)

That's how many more frags you had than deaths. The number gets calculated every single time. I thought it would be interesting to put it up.

Or, it's the ratio of bad maps to good in the current map rotation. :^P

Pfft, bah and meh. Just one more win and you take the third spot Par. So stop your whining and start your winning. Besides, resetting the scores would only result in the two same players taking the two top spots.

If you really want to get nasty, put the TM equivalent of a salary cap in place. Some people will tell you that the NFL cap was put in place to dethrone the niners. Lobby for some similarly communistic policy here and you may have a chance. Get 666's ten thousand thread starting fingers on your side and it's a sure thing. ;^) :^P
