I'm interested to know why people don't use their winbolo.net accounts when the play online? In the 16 player game posted about not all players were logged in, yet all 16 players do have accounts on WBN. I'm interested to know why this is.

If you have any other feedback about the site feel free to post here.

I have mine turned on all the time, I say why not just leave it on, it's pretty much cheating the ranking system to turn it off when your not at your greatest moment and what not. Wink

You guys know me, I never ever troll.

But if I'm signed in as "Mad Scout." or "Mad Scout.." or "Mad Scout..." it's because a previous time playing I got booted from the game and tried to rejoin, but the game wouldn't let me in saying that there was already a player with that name (i.e. me) in the game, so I had to go back to the main menu and "not use winbolo.net", then change my name to one of the above versions of my name so that the game thinks I'm someone new and lets me in. I usually forget to change it back and use wbn after that particular game is over, which is what happened in that 16 player game.

I use my account to play open games as well as post maps, and I do believe that Acro is an active winbolo'er. He plays stricts as well as opens.

Any reason you don't use the "remember my password" button to prevent having to login each time?

Frankly, I get bored playing with the same name game after game after game and games after games. Even with 10 WBN registered names I get bored with them if I play them each much. So hence why I like to think of interesting, fun, or crazy names to play that I use anywhere from once to a few days/weeks.

Also I don't like being ranked under WBN. It makes the games more stressfull, although now it's been quite a long time since I've played a 1v1. I do remember when I did play 1v1 a lot it did raise the stress level.

However, I really enjoy Fermat's Log Viewer. I find it adds an extra enjoying element to the after-game chat with his cool stats and cool graph and it helps analyze the game better. Thus in serious games I try to make it a point to use one of my registered name so the game is registered under his viewer.

And even then, sometimes there are errors - once in a while when I try to join a game with one of my registered name it'll give me an error so I join without registering

-FireIce

ps. As an aside one of my dissapointment with WBN is that I can't even change name during a game as I used to before, even when I'm not logged on WBN. That kind of cuts down on the fun of changing name during a game.

Was THIS your intent, Elvis????????????

I am proud to say that I only have one. I like for people to know who I am when they play with me, just like I like to know who I'm playing with.

Jeez calm down Mad Scout. There's no way to play serious games (pw games) without people knowing who I am. So I'm pretty sure you've never played a set game without knowing I was me.

Which I find unfortunate - because people think of me as I was at the top of my game and keep putting me in teams that can't win because right now I have a poor playing style relatively speaking. Thus my teams lose a lot more often then if I was placed according to my true current skill. Ah well, it's still fun.
