Lol well let's hope everyone is constructive. I just thought they were adding a 'currently hosted' lobby system...
I'll be there.
Oh yeah I love the video! Great watch for anyone really :)
Looking back now, I think part of the success of (my map) Death Haven, was that it did ramp up nicely. You start out at the landing site, with a simple goal of making your way to town. This gives a brief introduction to enemies, combat, and the story. Even if you don't know the goal, it's the only thing you can do, so the player can easily become invested. Then at town, there are a few cutscenes (which most people skipped), but essentially enemies start attacking the town and you're thrown into defending... and finally through death and replaying, you learn how to get better and better and work out strategies of defense against the Zerg waves.
The funny thing is that most of that ^ was completely accidental. I now realize many of the reasons why it was more successful than my other maps. At the time of making it though, I didn't really think about any of this. Just worked out I guess...

Nope, active includes all comp players in my experience.
I think the difference is that if a player leaves the game, they are no longer considered active.
I believe this is true.
Some times for max verbosity in my maps, I've just looped through numbers 1 to 8 (assuming i've had 8 players), and check if that player number is playing, and not controlled by computer...

I wish women would do that to us. JK JK!
You know way back when, here in Vancouver, we took some of New York's gray/black squirrels as a gift. But when those squirrels came here they basically overran our brown squirrels and now you can almost never see brown ones :O
Back on topic: I'm starting to think this video is fake now. The camera looks like it's on rails, and you never actually see any shots where people get hurt. It's all just too smooth...

You think Earth is 10k years old.
You think women are inferior.
You think America invented the car.
You think Europeans drive on the left.
