extra! extra! read all about it! / 32GB

a hardware upgrade has been completed on our primary server. it's now sportin' 32GB RAM for your smoother in-game experience! (hopefully this will fix certain lags, such as the "warping" on AoS babel)

the funding calculator on the front page of aloha.pk has been updated to include this additional cost. it's only January and our 2018 expenses are already 54% funded! :o

huge thanks to Nathan, topo, VerstehIchNicht, Spring, Colorpinpoint, and shywolf91 for donating the funds to make this and our continued operations possible. <3

blockchain / what is this about?
« on: December 30, 2017, 04:24:13 PM HST »
although it's thrilling to talk about trading cryptocurrencies and you're more than welcome to do that here, try to keep in mind that this forum isn't only about that. the primary intention of this forum is focus towards the underlying technology of Bitcoin -- blockchain -- and its real world uses. how can it improve you, me, aloha.pk, gaming, the internet, the physical world, and beyond? let's embrace this brilliant and still new technology, and unless you have good reason to doubt a particular blockchain, please keep the FUD to a minimum.

anyway, with that said...

what cryptocurrencies are mooning right now? what are you bullish on, what are you hodling? what's on the verge of crashing? why?

what blockchains are changing how you perceive, well, anything and everything? how are their plans aiming to improve (or already improving) humanity?

specifically what are you pondering about the endless possibilities of different blockchains that keeps you up at night and interrupts your daily routines as the potential overtakes you?

what blockchains are actually already usable, innovative, scalable, private, fast, etc. rather than speculative or just white papers of backless ideas?

...just some brief intro thoughts and questions to get this forum started.

for me, blockchain is most similar to the feeling i had in ~1995 when the modern internet was still young and i was starting to get seriously addicted to it. i've been hopeful that i'd get to relive an era like that in my lifetime and now that it's actually happening, every morning is as exciting as Christmas. very, very interesting times! :)

another excellent remake by you. i'm serious, you are really good at this. good job!

it's now added to the servers, so it's ready to be tested and played for the event this Saturday, December 2, 2017.

what an excellent remake.. you really pay attention to detail. very professionally done, you're good at this!

it's now added to the servers, so it's ready to be tested and played for the event this Saturday, December 2, 2017. if it plays well, we'll most likely add it to the rotation on the csarena server.

you should update your first post with the latest version (you now have the unlimited edit time permission).

extra! extra! read all about it! / net neutrality needs YOU!
« on: November 22, 2017, 07:34:18 PM HST »

so backwards to the point that we need to defend net neutrality AGAIN.

net neutrality prevents internet providers from controlling and charging for what we see and do online. without it, the internet would become divided into subscription-based packages similar to cable TV, and whatever access you're fortunate enough to afford would still be isolated from the whole internet.

defending net neutrality is common sense; it's defending the open modern internet the world has been using for nearly two decades. even if you're not in the USA, losing net neutrality there would have a huge negative effect on the internet as you know it.

if you are an American, please encourage Congress to stop the FCC from killing net neutrality. www.battleforthenet.com (thanks BR for the link) makes it super easy to email and call important decision makers -- a script is even provided for your email that you can also use to read aloud during your calls. press * after finishing each call to move on to the next. thanks! :)

whatevahs / this is why switching from IRC to Discord was a bad idea
« on: November 17, 2017, 12:52:00 PM HST »

and there's nothing we can do about it :P

we are slaves to a for-profit company. when they go down, we go down.

if this was IRC, we'd have infinite servers and networks to choose from...

I'm dependent on (aka really like) nades because 1 person (even with smg) simply can't take on a large number of people (which happens a lot in arena) - (aka, 1 person versus >3 enemies, the >3 enemies almost always win - even if a few died)

why are you solo in the first place? that's what you get for letting your team die :P

-but I agree that since it is so close in votes (because while 7 are for increasing nade damage at this point and 11 are for no changes, the majority - of this really small pool of people - is 12 want some sort of change) - I agree  that we should meet somewhere in the middle and see how that works out.

just because 5 of those 12 "want some sort of change," it can't be concluded that they all support the notion of the 7 who are for increased damage.

of those 5:
  • 1 wants nades removed altogether - i say that's more supportive of the 11 who are for the current reduced damage.
  • 2 want more nades with the current reduced damage - this can almost be considered a neutral wash because although it means they're in favor of more total combined damage from all nades, it also means they like something about the current reduced damage of each nade. where's the option for more nades with less-than-current reduced damage anyway?
  • 2 want "other " - this can mean anything. perhaps they have no preference at all? or perhaps they actually want further decreased damage, but considering that you didn't provide that option anywhere in the whole poll, i say your poll is rigged to favor your preference of increased damage.
anyway, forum feedback doesn't necessarily reflect what's best for the gameplay because the sampling is so small. of course it's worth considering and that's what we're doing, but it's not the end-all consideration.
