The new rule isnt there because of the TK in stats, because if you dont see the difference between friend or foo outfit maybe you should buy glasses first then start playing GO again but its done because of the non readable names by faststat/ASE/GameSpy and our remote admin tools, so the colors f*ck up the whole game.
*cheers* Good thing to get rid of it. Even if it's easy to see whom is enemy or friend the colour of the name sure can make one confused, and that milli-second can be of vital importance ;-) Thanks for clearing up that issue Spook.
Ohh...LAW Party *chuckles as the whole world around him goes boom*
Since the problem with Fastsats is solved, I think we should reconsider the rules on coloured names. You say it gives TK issues and in general colours are confusing for the players. This might be true but i've experienced that this rule makes a creates problem. All the players on TLP are trying to get the ppl using colours out, and if there is no admin around this sometimes leads to serious fights on the server. Also I dont think its that confusing anymore, most ppl are used to it now since its allowed on most others servers. I think that there is a lot of unnecsesairy fuzz made about namecolours. You might not be able to ban them that easy, but if they dont give any reason for a ban then whats the problem. If you ask me we should allow coloured names. Give it a thought and respond.
The issue with FastStats was one of the technical problems. But there are some others (like ASE that don't display the colored names). And the main reason is that it is sometimes disturbing. Some players are using too many colors, and some players complain about TK. So I don't think we should accept the colored names. For me, the rule still applies.
The colored names ( red/green ) isnt a problem when you can see the color of the clothes but in dark places like the middle building in antartica the confusion can be great. Also the colors aint adding anything to gameplay itselfs, it only gives problems some minor some big so the RULE STAYS
