Anyone down to play?
What's on your mind?
Could I borrow the defly chat script?
It's hard being Defly famous.
I think we need to establish standards for articles on the wiki.
I do like Wikipedia's "every article has to be categorised" as well as their use of APA citations. Furthermore, neutral pov and a set of conditions a person must meet in order to have an article on the wiki.
My proposal for articles about people is:
* The person is at least one of the following
** Involved in development of the game as an official contributor to the game.
** A participant in an official Defly.io tournament.
** A skin designer who got at least one of their skins in the game.
** A map designer who got at least one of their maps in the game.
** A YouTuber or other video maker who has the @YouTuber role in the official Defly.io Discord.
This way we won't have random people making random articles.
I have requested for badges to be added to the defly.io Wiki. Have fun earning them while editing on this wiki!
So I've noticed, even though I haven't been on very long, that there are not very many people on this wiki. Maybe we should talk to Beepbop about telling people about the wiki? I didn't even know that the teleport went to where your cursor was until I read the article about superpowers. You also might want to tell your friends that play Defly about the wiki. It has a lot of valuable information about Defly that people that put on here. And more information is yet to be put on here. :)
• Talk to your teammates - You can communicate with your team members by pressing the Enter key, pressing the Enter key again will send the message to all your team members. Communication is key to organising your team. You can talk about various things
• Distress signaling - If you are being attacked by multiple opponents while defending an important part of your territory or are in another scenario that you can't win on you own you could send a short message like: "Help". Try to keep your message short as you can't move around while typing.
• Talk about which type of players are needed - Have you just joined in or has someone else just joined? Talk about which upgrades would be the best to get. Does your team have poor defenses, communicate that you need players with a Tower Health + Tower Shield focused build. Does your team need more attackers, tell the other players that bullet speed + bullet range would be a good option. Remember you can't force another player to do exactly as you want, so try to keep it civil.
• Pair up - Two players working together are stronger than two players doing their own thing. You may want to ask if you can join a more experienced player, as they can help defend you. Powerful player combinations are:
• One attacker + one builder - One player with better attack upgrades can kill enemies and keep enemies at a distance, the player with better tower upgrades can carefully place more towers inbetween your team and the enemy. This is effective for pushing.
• Two attackers - Two attackers can overwhelm some players. Especially attacking from two angles can be devastating.
• Choose the right superpowers - Sometimes you might want to achieve a certain goal, abilities an help you with this.
• Dual Fire - This makes it easier to quickly get through enemy defenses and is a good counter to very defensive players although players who can control build distance very well will quickly build new defenses.
• Speed Boost - This is good in the early game for quickly claiming new territory. In the mid to late game it can be used to outmanoeuvre opponent's attacks if you manage to control well with Speed Boost.
• Flashbang is not recommended - Flashbang may be a nice thing to use against your opponent, but nearby teammates are affected by your flashbangs as well, rendering both sides unable to properly fight. Use with caution.
• Let others take exp - After reaching level 32, getting exp is not a thing you have to focus on, however player that have just joined or respawned might really need the exp. Allow them to finish off connecting tower or allow them to destroy surrounded enemy towers.
• Early Game
In the early game it is important to gain territory to gain experience as there are no enemy towers within reach to break. Preparing for the late early game can be done by going for Tower Health with some Tower Shield and maybe some Build Distance for those who can control it. At the end of the early game you want to have a strong base territory that you can build upon.
• Mid Game
In the mid game various things can happen the following scenarios will be described
HOW DO I EDIT OR CREATE AN ARTICLE?
-- That’s pretty easy. If you noticed a mistake or want to add some info to a page, just click “Edit” on the top left corner of the article and write whatever you want. When you’re done, click “Save”, add a short description about your changes and voilà! The article is saved. You can also make changes to specific sections by clicking the “Edit” links next to their titles.
There are two ways of editing pages, the Visual Editor (it opens automatically when clicking “Edit”) and the Classic Editor. You can use the Classic Editor by hovering your mouse over the small arrow down next to the “Edit” button and clicking “Classic Editor”.
Creating pages is a little different, but still very easy. At the top right corner of your screen, it should say the number of articles currently in the wiki. On the right, there’s a button called “Create Page” and that’s it.
HOW CAN I EDIT MY PROFILE?
-- On the top of your screen is a dark blue bar, and somewhere on the right side, there’s a small icon showing your profile picture (or the default picture if you don’t have an account. If so, click it and register.). Hover your mouse over the picture and click “View Profile”. After that, all you have to do is edit the page like any other articles!
CAN I TALK TO OTHER USERS?
-- Yes, you can! Click the name of the user you want to talk to and switch to the tab saying “Message Wall” below their information. You should see two text fields: “What’s this about?”, where you can add a small summary of what your message is about. “Post a new message to <user>’s wall” is where you can write down what you actually want to tell them.
I NOTICED SOMEONE BREAKING A RULE. WHERE CAN I REPORT THEM?
-- If you see someone not following a rule, tell an admin on their message wall giving following points:
• The name of the user (use a link please)
• The rule they broke (spamming on articles, disrespecting others etc) and a short description of it
• A screenshot or a link as proof
You can also add a post in discussions including given points. An admin will talk to the user and they might even be blocked from editing and creating articles. If your report was successful, you can get a custom name link (choose a font, a color, a text shadow and more which is shown on a link to your profile) for up to one week.
MORE IS COMING SOON, SO STAY TUNED!
