And now for something entirely different

Considering we have far too many threads dedicated to whining and bitching about shit pateam either do or won't do I thought I'd start a thread for the purpose of praising them for a recent addition that I find rather interesting.

From the latest announcement on the portal

Quote:
-Added new 'Feed' list - highlights huge battles and interesting rank changes during the round, accessible through the universe page
<Will> [10:32:48] 7+ fleets on each side (including base fleet)
<Will> [10:32:48] 7+ defending fleets, and <15% of the attacking fleet died
<Will> [10:32:48] 6+ attacking fleets and >90% of the fleets died or was stolen
<Will> [10:32:48] 4+ attacking fleets and 10+ fleets total and 70%+ of the ships on both sides died

Big ass battles, cool fakes, suicidal landings and mutual destruction affairs respectively.

Cue applause.

I thought you meant noobs who got bashed by someone for roids, which wouldn't appear on the news feed. If not my bad. If you just meant you see people who lose their fleet then yeah that information is up on sandmans already.

Re: And now for something entirely different

It's a nice addition, but the 5 tick delay is a bit lame. All the epic breps usually get passed around pretty quickly!

Yes, ellonweb. If you are part of the PA grapevine. For people not in there it is more than a nice addition.

Yeah, for new players it's a pretty cool addition.

Re: And now for something entirely different

I'm not disputing that, in fact I totally agree, this is a nice addition. But given that most of these big battles are not going to involve new players and are mainly going to be people on the "grapevine", why make the new players wait 5 ticks?

Re: And now for something entirely different

Yeah, I'd probably cut the waiting time out altogether but it's better than nothing y'know!

Re: And now for something entirely different

The only argument I can think of is this one:

Rumours in the grapevine still take time to be spread. If this information is disclosed in the same tick this may provoke mass vulturing (I am not sure whether this is correct English, but I had some beers in the sun today :P ) on this planet which isn't a wanted consequence of this addition.

I think 4 ticks will do, though

Re: And now for something entirely different

should alliance nicks be included in the battle? or alliances?

ie. if 50% of the defending fleet (value) is Ascnendancy and 50% of the attacker fleet (value) is Conspiracy Theory the feed should say something like 'In an epic battle between Ascendancy and Conspiray fleets, Conspiracy lost more then 90% of their attackers ships'
or something equally or more heroic

That would be cool, Theam! I would like that. Gives an extra edge to the breps!

Re: And now for something entirely different

Sounds interesting. And yes, I would drop the delay to 4 ticks or lower, in line with newsies, which also have a delay of 4 ticks.

Re: And now for something entirely different

Nice addition but since any value loss a planet suffers shows up on sandmans straight away delaying it seems pretty pointless
