Hello

this is a brief recap of the features that I introduced inside the checkmate server during the last year,
I noticed that many users are not aware of them.


1) Better timer system:
-The timer starts at 60 seconds, you get bonus time after each action. it can refill up to 80 seconds.
-When the time is up, the game will end your turn instead of making you lose the duel

2) Better chat system:
-Global chat across the entire cloud of checkmate servers,
all registered and ranked users can talk in the global chat
-private messages: You can send a private message by typing "!pm username message" in the chat box
-colored chat: each color identifies a type of message. see 5)
-the game chat is reachable from the website too: www.ygopro.it
-you can chat with the opponents after the end of the duel


3) Score,ranking and match making system:
-The server is able to judge how strong a player is, at the start of the duel you can read a guess of what will be the duel outcome
-when entering a room, the server will automatically choose the best available opponent that matches your skills
-you get more points for defeating a stronger opponent
-you can register a new user by entering the server with an available username.
-Achievements system

4) Duel rooms
-if both you and your friend are in the waiting room, you can challenge your fiend via the command
"!challenge username" or "!challenge TAG username"..
-you can change the room settings, the banlist is detected automatically from your deck
-if you click on the "Spectate" button in the waiting room, you can see the available rooms and choose one
-handicap match: this is the checkmate version of the 1 vs 2 mode.
-you can ask for a rematch after the end of the duel

5) color chat. Each message type has a different color.
-yellow: private message from another user
-blue: the admin talking
-purple: a user who got a bonus of some kind, one of them is the bonus for spamming
-green: donators.
-white: people in the same room as you
-red: people in a different room
-[^_^]: people in a different server of the checkmate servers cloud (yes, [^_^] is a color :) )

6) technical stuff:
-the checkmate server has a smart update system, users don't get disconnected during a reboot or after an update
-the checkmate server is split among multiple instances, each one can handle up to 600 users. when a user joins the server, he is automatically redirected to the best instance available.
-there are multiple bots (DevBot) dueling random users
-you can connect to the server from any ygopro client. just go in lan mode and set the ip "173.224.211.157", port "21001"
-when a card bug is detected, that card is disabled and the duel goes on. without crashing
-The server can detect new bugs and strange behavior, I'm notified whe a bug is found so I can fix it quickly

You can get the donator status by donating here or at www.ygopro.it.
if you donated here I need the confirmation from percival18 before giving you the donator status.

no, these updates are compatible only with the checkmate servers.
I already pushed to the main ygopro source the features I could make compatible (these are not listed in the first post)
also, I own only the checkmate servers, I have no power on the others.

I really like the timer system change. Gonna look into trying it out later today for sure. The timer system before these changes I personally felt a bit too punishing for the smaller time frame which of course can still be alleviated by continuous making your moves throughout your turn.
Also, why am I checkmate's most popular player? :blush

I really like the new timer system, but its a hassle when the other player leaves and just makes you waste your time. I personally don't like sitting there waiting for his timer to drain after every move i make, id rather quit, it seems like thats a sort of strategy now? i don't know, but if theres some way to make the player lose after enough timeouts, it'd be great, because it can get really stressful when they pull that.
