    Sure, but that will only save stats on specific bots. If map does the tracking, everybody will have stats no matter where they play. It also feels more official if the stats come from the map, because otherwise there may be multiple bots tracking different stats.

    Oh yeah, don't get me wrong, if the way you planned it is possible then go for it. It would be better for sure. Just mentioning it as an alternative, if it's not efficiently possible.

    I have just 2 questions about it though - would stats be tracked from one version to the next? Or would stats be reset with each version? Also, I assume if people play on 2 different computers they would have 2 different sets of stats, right?

    Stats would be kept from version to version.
    Since stats are saved in a file, you could just copy that file to another computer and your stats would be transfered.

    Stats will be saved and encrypted on the user's PC once Garfield gives me the map. Further details will be discussed at a later date.

    If Garfield likes me enough and is up for it, I'd also implement an inflame custom alliance selection that shows the loaded stats on picking. Still thinking of some way to stop players from simply reverting their save file after a bad game.

    ATM syncing takes 200ms for up to 1200 characters per player.

    This will be the first test for the sync system (in terms of actual usability) if it works well ill publish

    Oh, Garf I have an idea for Swapper that I forgot to tell you the other day. Would it be possible to let his swap projectile enter enemy net (but not affect GK)? It would be a huge and needed upgrade to Swapper IMO.

    New hero idea, add a "real" tank modeled hero in with similar abilities to powershot except it kills whoever catches it and they don't respawn for about 10 seconds. Cooldown on the tanks ability would be 40 seconds at least I'd say. Maybe another new hat shop.

    Good map, definitely easily 5/5.

    Off-Topic: Beware if you play or join a clan for banjo or football on us east, they're not very friendly. Extra hostility towards beginners as well. They have problems when they're not winning. Not trying to say anything bad, just typing from experience.

    There's a bug, garf.

    Sometimes when you try to jump in box you can't and you don't jump until round ends or you get ball and throw it. Maybe something to do with your cooldown checker or ball is held checker?

    Hihihi, because Garfield stopped working on the map, released deprotected copies to the public, and it had been months since the last update, I began working on the map under the name "Betaball" for our East community. Just posting here to raise some awareness as I've been seeing people hosting Banjoball 1.18 on youtube.
    Here's a list of updates I've made:
    Updates

    Gameplay Changes:
    -Blink cooldown increased to 24 seconds from 20. (1.18)
    -Added a Practice Mode where cooldowns are entirely disabled (1.18)
    -Added a few additional commands for the mode such as a -no goal mode that disables goals and a -ball command that gives you the ball (you have to vote to enable the command first) (1.18A)
    -Added a hook hero (he's not really strong atm, but there are buffs in the works) (1.18D)

    Miscellaneous Changes:
    -Games now initialize on "-score 13" instead of "-time 10" b/c US meta best meta. (1.18)
    -Trade command to trade heroes with another player on your team
    -Commands are no longer case sensitive due to some of our playerbase literally not knowing how to type. lOoKinG aT yOU tExAS.
    -Voting no longer counts nonhuman players (1.18D)
    -Multiboard now has a running game timer (pauses whenever the ball isn't active) (1.18D)
    -Multiboard now toggles with the esc key (1.18D)
    -Redid the hotkeys for the hero and hat taverns (1.18D)

    Aesthetic Changes:
    -The greatest change of all: the hero selection area now has a grass smiley face because
    [​IMG] (1.18)
    -MORE CHEERS! (which some players detest wholeheartedly :)) (1.18D)
    -Removed the snow textures from the snow fields because they were 1MB which isn't worth fixing the blinding snow fields that no one plays on anyways (1.18D)
    -MOAR HATS! The Pokemon Cap causes fatals for some people (don't know why)

    Changes in 1.19:
    Bug Fixes:
    -Ball should no longer drop on players leaving / repicking (unless ofc they were in possession). I couldn't actually test this.
    -Hook fixes:
    Fixed hook's animation fucking up every other animation speed in the game :p
    Fixed hook itself not facing the player
    Fixed the slingshot hooks
    Finally gave it lolz mode stats

    Balance Changes:
    -Hook Changes:
    Gave it a 1 second silence (begins as soon as you get hooked, so for fullranged hooks the time you reach the caster and get unhooked it's basically already gone)
    Ally / Enemy Only (Q and R) - Ally Only has a decreased CD (18 seconds) because its not as useful as enemy hooks
    More Range: Almost the same distance as the ball is kicked
    As soon as it hits a forcefield it drops the player (no more derpy hook gk)
    You can now withdraw a hook early
    You can now drop a hero you've hooked early (Though, it won't hook another hero after that).
    -Powershot Changes:
    Slow has a 5 second CD
    Powershot is cancellable once again! (Either through recasting it or by pressing S)
    -Pull Changes:
    Changed default CD to 30 seconds because wtf garf, why .25 more?
    Changed it so that the length of time that you pull affects the cooldown. The breakdown of cooldowns are: 0->.5 = 6 seconds, ->1.5 = 12 seconds, ->2.5 = 18 seconds, ->3.5 = 24 seconds, -> 4.5 = 30 seconds

    Miscellaneous Changes:
    -Spacebar Points set to the ball
    -Posts less misleading (for people trying to score at least. They're still misleading in shape, but at least now they're entirely over the boxes so you don't sometimes shoot by them and end up hitting a post anyways)
    -Removed the useless Ride Horse ability from tackle.
    -Double tap S to fake an injury (Just plays the death animaton). Certain heroes (tree/bh/wisp) will go back to standing after the animation if their death animation makes them disappear, but others will stay on the ground until you move them. Does not work if you are holding the ball.
    -Locally toggleable cheers. If you have cheers disabled, but have a cheer set, it will still play the sound for you. If you want cheers preset to off, post or message me somewhere and I'll set it.
    -Added a repick vote so you can repick outside of Practice Mode and kick off.
    -Snow levels now have less friction and players slide when they move. There's a max slide speed. It's currently somewhat buggy in multiplayer
    -More cheers :D

    Aesthetic Changes:
    -Hook hero now renamed to "Jig Per Ace"
    -Hook hero now has a striped shirt to look more like a sailor
    -Fedora actually a fedora now, no longer a mage hat labelled as a fedora.
    -Halo thicker
    -Crown larger
    -Snow levels tinted so they're not bright and deadly
    -Added black to teamcolors

    Known major bug (fixed in 1.19A, but that version has other major bugs):
    -Trinnin (america cheer) causes desyncs.
