Epidion takes this week's MOTW title with his innovative space two-player space map Echo II. As the walking distance between the base is rather big, playing an early expansion strategy should pay off pretty often. There is no other expansion that you can grab just like this on the map, though, so it should not become too much of a macro war. Also the total amount of expansions is rather low too (eight), I personally appreciate that on a two-player map a lot.
Enough talking, start playing our newest addition to the MOTW-list, get it right now!
Noone felt like doing the newspost, so we are back to our usual delay :D flothefreak is the happy guy to get the MOTW award this time for his pretty experimental map Naja. He may also win the strangest-map-name award on this one by the way.
The secound entry to the main on ths two-player map is blocked by a mineral wall, while the natural is pretty exposed, making fast expo strategies pretty hard to pull off.
Someone (I really don't know who would be evil enough to do something like that) deleted all entries to our beloved map database last night.
I really thought all the work we put into this in the last months dissapear from the face of the earth in a few secounds, as I did not do a backup in half a year. I got lucky though, as the great people from my webhoster make backups regulary and were able to put the backup back up (^^). The backup is from friday afternoon, so not too much is lost.
I do not know (yet) what technique the person who did that used, I did not see how it is possible to abuse the scripts on the page to mass delete, so it is possible the hacker somehow got the password to the mysql-Admin area. This password is changed, plus all user-passwords are stored encrypted now in the DB, at least it should not be possible for a hacker to get your personal passwords. You might get "wrong password" messages here and there because of this, please tell me so that I can fix.
Actually I might just do a few updates today and tomorrow, make sure you'll let me know, tuesday I'll be back to my lazy self ;D
Thanks to everyone who supported me.
Thanks again to my great web hoster, I can really recommend them, at least if you speak german ;)
