Account flags?

Account flags?

Postby eltomito » 09 Mar 2020, 22:46

When I started playing STK on my phone, I created a separate account for it, because it's way harder to play on the phone. I noticed FabianF did the same.
Also sometimes, I play drunk. So, I'm thinking of creating a drunk account for that, because you don't play so well when you're drunk.
Then imagine you're playing drunk on your phone...

So, is it total nonsense to add flags to accounts so that you can check: now I'm playing from my phone, now I'm playing from my phone and I'm wasted, so that your results are classified with respect to these influential circumstances? Like: phone, drunk... You know?

lol, stk should be able to detect a phone platform and adds a mobile flag. We can mark different drunk level by the number of bears :D

Is STK really important enough for that? I've seen far more bad results from drunk texting and email. Maybe we should combat that first. :)

When you drive, never drink Basically there's probably no way for STK server to determine whether you are drunk, or what's the degree of your drunkness, unless some drunkness-measuring devices are supported, lol. Operating system/probably device can be determined, so it's possible to indicate whether a player plays mobile. Aside from privacy issues, I have no idea how to 'classify' results fairly based on that, we already have some issues with normal ranking system and then drunk ranked is suggested :-)
And speaking seriously, imo ranked should stay a place for showing real skill, not something distorted

On an unrelated note, I hope you don't mind very much me asking a half-joking question like some other players do: 'Are you FabianF or someone else's alt?' :-)
One day, I'll put enough checklines on all your tracks.

It didn't even occur to me it could be automatic. I imagined that I'd tick a checkbox like drunk, after a head injury, on phone, etc. and STK would automatically log into the appropriate account, e.g. woosh-phone or woosh-braindamaged, etc.

Agreed.

I'm FabianF's drunk account! It surprises even myself how well I race my two accounts - woosh and FabianF - against each other :)

I thought that FabianF = AntonioP

Well, you should keep drunkness level not so big to be able to tick a checkbox lol
Actually I can make a server command that plays like a checkbox, and then server can probably tell everyone the player's state (not sure about that, but probably I cannot make it fully because I obviously cannot access client STK apps). Not sure about the usefulness though, you can tell everyone 'I'm now drunk' hehe

Oh no, FabianF seems to own many accounts even here! Actually AntonioP isn't him, there are... Would be better to tell that on a server lol

The mobile phone account is alright. As you use it on a different device, each device will keep in memory the proper account to connect with, so you'll use the mobile account with your phone, and the normal account on your desktop or laptop.

But adding code to support easy switching between two accounts for when you're drunk or wasted ? No... Extremely niche, add more code, more potential for bugs (we have enough of those already). And if you take products that damage your health, you have bigger issues than losing ranking points when not in your normal state.

I'm sorry, the original question was a joke and the answer to it was supposed to be "Yes".
