Tugby Results for February 26th, 2017 - End of the Winter Season

Last Sunday marked the end of the Winter Season of Tugby League play.  Winning the league is recognition of someone who is able to faithfully attend the Tugby matches and has the luck (or skill... or a combination of the two) to win games.  Team play means that you win based not only on your contributions to the team effort, but also the skills of your team members.  While winning does feel good, having fun is more important.  

See you next Sunday for the start of the SPRING season.

Tugby Results for January 29, 2017 PLUS Script Counter Announcement!

Last Sunday we played three games that were very competitive.  Since there was some concern over avatars wearing too many scripts, Yasmin volunteered to do an Avatar Script Counter that is integrated with the Team Selector.  Below is the announcement sent out by Yasmin.

Ahoy Tugby Captains!  .o/

We are always having to deal with lag, due to a variety of causes - but one that we do have some control over is the amount of script resources consumed by our avatars. Its easy to overlook our attachment script count, its normal to be running several, but when we play tugby we should make a conscious effort to reduce our scripts to a minimum to do our bit to avoid lag. 

In order to help remind us of our script load I have added a feature to the Team Selector on the dock that will nag anyone with a larger than modest script count. Here is how it works (currently)
* script count, memory and runtime stats are reported for captains as they sign up, anyone with more than 20 scripts gets a personal notice
* scan is run right after the teams are selected, so once per game
* scan checks everyone in the PARCEL, including passengers and spectators. It wont include people on the public and residential parcels elsewhere in the sim
* device reports total and average avatar script usage
* list of avatars & their resource use is sorted by total script count
* the device will shout the name of the avatar with the highest script count
* all avatars with more than 20 script are listed with their resource stats

Of course script count is not the only cause for lag. And arguably the total count is not the best metric for measuring server resource load (runtime use is perhaps more helpful). But hopefully this will encourage us all (players and spectators) to keep our script down to a reasonable level.

Thanks for your consideration and responsible use of scripts. But most of all please lets not let this become a source of drama, we should focus on the fun of playing tugby :-)

Tugby Results for January 22, 2017

We were only able to complete one game last Sunday.  The game did last for 30 minutes and featured two ties.  We started a second game, but people were having trouble staying connected so we finally gave up.  Better luck on Sunday!!

For those of you that follow the rankings closely you will notice a discrepancy between last week and this week.  I discovered a discrepancy (error) and have corrected it.  Consider the previous reporting as "alternative facts".

Tugby Results Updated for January 15

We had a number of folks come to watch last week and one new player (Ruz Saxondale).  In order to get him up to speed (he had played before), the first game we played was not used in the season standings.  We only got one game in for the record, but that game lasted almost 30 minutes.  Whew!
