Multiplayer terminology
« on: June 23, 2004, 02:01:25 PM »
due to being asked countless times what I and others are talking about, here's the list:

LO (or LOS) = Last One Standing
LR = Land Rush
SR = Space race
RR = Resource Race
M = Midas
BM = Build Mark
AM = Attack Mark

-- Edit: added LOS

Peaceful = not building any attack units.

(You can still research weapons tech, but no attacking. Only fun on SR,RR, or M :P )

forgot my favorite:

Arena = attack units are the only things that can be targeted (normaly in a designated area that is sometimes walled off with 'pits' created that contain garages for vehicle repairs between rounds)

Yeah and I usually use deviations from the National Standards of Oupost 2 Gaming (NSOG)'s abbreviations.  :P

An example is sometimes I abbreviate Outpost 2 as "O2" as opposed to NSOG's "op2/Op2". Really though since I'm a hellishly fast typer I usually just spell out all my crap so that it can be understood universally.  :rolleyes:

considering i had lots of time to think and not play, i was all so thing of a new type of game type where in a specific lo standing map or lr a person will mimic the use of being an actual peace keeper
rules of engagement are the following
1. a peace keeper cannot attack direcly on another player (no teaming up)
2. you can go after vehicals out of your base as long as you can see detect them like a scout or a tank or a structure
3. no trading any units
4. unlimited bulding or max
5. use of the emp missle can be used to target any structure or unit that is hostile like another spaceport.
6. the limit to how far a peace keper can extend on the map is that it can only extend 40 spaces form the origanla base.( this can be modified)
7.once the peace keeper in disable you cannot destroy the cc or go after it direcly the peace keeper can allie and continue to watch the current match
8 you can have as many as 4 peace keepers in a 6 player game

this will be nicknamed PK for peace keeper
