View Full Version : Resolution Cap for TWDT

Yes, we're back to this crap. I know some idiot javelins think that unlimited resolution gives no advantage to a player, but whether it's in TWDTD or even TWDTJ, it's a known fact between most players that it is indeed a huge advantage. I think it's time capped res normally- humid only allowed it in TWDT to test out for TWL, and, well, the people spoke AGAINST it. There is absolutely NO purpose to not have a rescap now, have some consistency between TWL and TWDT.

It's a recent topic of mention for TWD, so i'm bringing it up into twdtdtdtdtdtdtdtd. It makes terrible players like Lasenza do okay in games because they have a huge advantage over us newbs who either have a big enough monitor, and don't want to practice something that won't be done in TWL, or those who just don't have a big enough monitor.

Do something to fix one of the many aspects of this waste of a league. I put up a poll so I could prove to you what people want - hope it isn't ignored like the last one.

I'll leave a comment here so I don't feel like I'm being *****rdly towards RS even tho' I helped my good friend Cres with another similar post and reponse...

It's unfair for, not only for people with smaller monitors and resolution settings, but also for the newer people who are getting into TWD and even events and duel arenas. It's harder for a newer player, who has a smaller res, to judge where to shoot using his/her radar especially when vsing a better player, who has a res like 1600+ and the 1920 one Lasenza uses, who knows how to radar dodge and play the lines of the shots. That is a huge advantage over someone using the normal 1280. That's like...what? 3 extra inches on both sides of the monitor for viewing, not sure. If I had 1920 I'd definitely be playing people from the sides and play safe as hell if I got an enemy on top/bottom of radar.

wanna start by saying i am in favor of the res cap. in defense of lasenza, however, the majority of his kills are r1/r2 (look at his games if you want). no matter what size res a player is using, the r1-4's arent going to change/adjust whatever. so obviously lasenza is using skill and not just "straying" thanks to a big res. the only advantage he gets is better dodging of your strays. would also like to add that lasenza (believe it or not) actually teams now. mind blowing, i know, but saw and played with him myself

Just another case of River thinking anyone better than him is actually terrible, which makes 3/4 of TW garbage players in his eyes.Also another thread for River to hate on lasenza's 1.9 k:d and 3.9 w:l. River's 1.1 k:d and 1.9 w:l is obviously superior.

Stop hating on other people for being better than you, and stop blaming your worthlessness on trivial factors.

I think their should be a res cap and I stray and radar all day.

AKA; Hecklar doesn't even have to listen out for enemy shots being fired, no matter how far away he is (you stop hearing shots at about R3-correct?) he'll always be able to tell which enemy to rush just by looking infront of him. I'd say thats a pretty big advantage over the people who rely on sound and radar to team.

Hey you 0-leaguing troll, this thread wasn't based on Lasenza, I just slipped him in because ask anybody (hell, even ask raspi) and they'll tell you that lasenza is the prime example of taking advantage of reso.

My stats in TWD are irrelevant in this read, don't derail it you useless non-contributing pos. Thanks.

i wasnt looking to start a flame war (paul is), just defending lasenza. and by what i said and by his r1-4 stats, you cant really say he uses res to his advantage for kills. but anyway, back to boring discussion about res caps

you mad at me because my w:l in my league is higher than yours is in your league? I voted, I just don't appreciate you taking cheap shots at my obviously superior squadmate, and even though Lasenza might let it go because it's coming from a jealous prepubescent, I'm not as nice.

You put Hecklar on 1280x800 for a week and I'll put money on the table he won't achieve the same stats as a week on his normal res.. this obviously isn't going to happen.. just for the pure fact that no one wants to admit it.

yeah because Senza would be susceptible to strays and shit then. Most of Senza's kills come from r1 r2 like renzi said so it's not like its just a stray fest.

And this is why this thread was made, so the people who have the res space don't have the advantage of early dodging of strays / sitting on the sideline picking up vulch kills. Res limit = fairer game.

The only advantage? That's a pretty BIG "only", dude. I mean he can dodge good radar shots because he has a resolution size that is not league allowable. That's not skill, that's a lazy player that's taking advantage of his resolution. Not only that, he's got a huge advantage in taking radar shots, flying in on an opponent out of position, because he can see what direction the ship is pointed at, otherwise not capable in a regular league res setting. There's a lot of things that res can do.

By the way, I'm not blaming Lasenza. Not his fault staff decided to allow that kind of res to be allowable in TWD and not TWL. But let's be real about it, the little skill he has is enhanced only by that enormous resolution. If he can do those type of things that regular great players do, using regular res, he'll be appreciated more. But my bet is, come TWL, those good radar shots are going to hit him like a ton of bricks.

there is an advantage using higher resolution whether it is an R1 or R5. It is considerably easier to play vs. people on lower res, whether you are rushing, shooting from close distance and especially when you have an all out radarbattle which is the primary gameplay in important games. Not to mention you can actually see people who are low on energy (they are on your screen as opposed to a dot on the radar.) you can save your teammates more efficiently because you can see patterns easier. Patterns that determine the flow of the game. I could go on.

Riverside had the best k/d ratio in twld playoffs last season. Digging up some irrelevant TWDD statistics says more about you than him.

It's nice to have a huge res and hide behind your team. While you're watching a warbird rush in for a kill on your teammate that they can only see on radar, you start to rush in for the vulch...that's how you stack up R1 & R2's on huge res.

I agree. It is funny how many people claim they are able to rush when all they do is trade one kill for a death. That's also why they are nothing in TWLD.

There will be a rescap this season in every league of TWDT.
The max resolution will be 1440x1024.

I do this because people with 1920x1200 has an advantage, bigger radar, bigger map etc. That would be easier to dodge, finding the enemies faster and other stuff like this.

Unfortunately Major did just one hell of a mistake by putting a resolution cap in EVERY TWDT arena. There should be no resolution limit in TWDT-B or TWDT-J as there is close to no advantage in having a higher resolution in those two leagues. Warbirds, however, are way different and that's the only league/division where you need a resolution cap for the game to remain competitive and fair.

Revert the changes in TWDT-B and TWDT-J back to non-capped. Keep the resolution limit in TWDT-D.

(I'll still use 1280x windowed, but I'm just saying this because there's people that expected that there would be no resolution cap, me included, in TWDT-J or TWDT-B)

Thus, revert the changes in those two arenas and we're good to go. Be smart, you don't even know how to play neither of those two leagues and Riverside is far from an accurate source to say that there's a huge advantage in Javs.

Rofl let at least one semi-competitive team-based event in this game have no silly res cap that does nothing but cater to players who cannot adjust their style out of their comfort zone
