Had an idea... Why not rotate the team names daily? Have new team names and colors every day. It will keep Wild Fortress much more interesting and new. Here are some ideas off the top of my head. Everyone can contribute their own ideas as well...

Theme: Hackers
Green: Crash Override
Orange: Acid Burn

Theme: AVP
Blue: Aliens
Green: Predators

Theme: Pets
Yellow: Cats
Brown: Dogs

Can also have special holiday themes, even if they are only in one country, doesn't really matter if they are not understood elsewhere.

Theme: Christmas
Red: Santa's Helpers
Green: Jesus' Disciples

Theme: Halloween
Red: The Tricksters
Orange: The Treeters

Theme: Easter
Pink: Pink Chicks
White: White Bunnies

What do you think? Vote?

Idea is good.
Problems....

Team names/colours are hard coded. I had to modify the source code before compliling to get Barmy Yellows/ Purple Nutters.

Colours...
Can't use red or green as they are dz/wz colours. Well, you can use them but it gets confusing.
You have to have opposite colours as colours which share the same colour values often look similar.

You are left with blue-purple v's yellow/orange (or any shade in between).

There's also the stats. Notice how the background colour changes depending on the team? It looks to see if the first letter is a "B" if so it makes it yellow. Or is it the other way round?

So it is doable, but a lot will need changing around.

I agree with Kyle. I remeber when there were red vs. violet. Totally confusing. I dont really care about the names, but I think the coulors should be as ed said. So I voted "leave them as they are". Smile

I like the idea. I agree about the colors. there aren't many possibilities but we do have a small range we can use.

if you haven't finished this until im back I'll gladly help you .

there are three problems.

one it needs alot of doing to make it happen

two it can get confusing with some colours

three it is not worth it because people play our level for the game itself and not the aesthetics. even sometimes ppl play to be with each other instead of the game.

and its colour with a u

well maybe we just can change the names, but leaving the colors, but just the one time, make some ideas, a poll votate and go, then we can adapt the php script to fit the names, but recompiling every time is not a good way.

really the names are ugly Razz

I'm quite happy to change the team names. But just once as it needs a whole recompile to do it.
I made up the Purple Nutters v's Barmy Yellows as a test really, to see if it worked. And it did. They've been there ever since.
The question that now looms. What's the new team names?
The colours need to be yellowy v's bluey, so not to conflict with each other, deathzones or winzones.

well, really i like more the gold/blue than yellow/purple, cause blues are a bit more bright and they looks better on the grind, purple is a bit darker.

about names i like the dogs vs cats ones, it also fit with our other server names.

but we also can have another option:

Blue -> Cules (Barça's fans)
Gold -> Merengues (R. Madrid fans)

Wave
