    Quick simple suggestion trio:

    1. Map name and map designer display during each round of play: Between rounds, the name of the map and its designer is displayed, but then that info vanishes while actually playing the map. I'd like the map info to continue to show during the CTF rounds as well. Some players may wish to know the map info since (some of them at least) are not super common in the rotations, and the window of time to learn the map names that aren't yet known is pretty brief between rounds. Also, games might be joined that are already in progress. Having the map info easier to learn and remember would especially help if a map selection perk for donations is offered at some point...but that donation idea is addressed in other forum posts from myself: https://www.brawl.com/threads/74558/ and more recently Spades_: https://www.brawl.com/threads/75335/

    2. Ninja pearl death kill credit: I've noticed that when respawning or falling off the map, credits are rewarded for the most recent opponent who attacked -- but if fighting against a Ninja, they can "suicide pearl" and no kill message displays. I'm not sure if no credit is awarded as well, but it would be fitting if this kind of death would display a message that acknowledges the attempted pearl escape gone wrong, and display and award the 2 credits earned from the kill for the player who was attacking the Ninja most recently when they suddenly pearled themselves to death.

    3. Displaying who killed the enemy flag carrier: When I'm playing as an Archer especially, and I snipe the enemy flag carrier, I'm not always the one who retrieves the flag. And I admit it's primarily for purposes of displaying snipe credit, but it's also to give away when there is a snipe threat and who that snipe threat is (which already happens plenty I'm sure for people who play and chat on Discord and say "Ugh. I got sniped by so-and-so!"). I'd like it if a message would display to everyone that says something like "Archer_Player_Name sniped Flag_Carrier_Name to help recover the flag." On this note, if it's better to announce who killed the enemy flag carrier regardless then perhaps instead of just a snipe announcement a message could display acknowledging ANYONE who kills the flag carrier saying something like "Player_Name killed Flag_Carrier to help recover the flag." I might expect some complaints about this, because it's already displayed that a certain player returns the flag when they do, and this could've easily gone into effect ages ago. I just don't yet know why it hasn't happened if it was ever suggested in the past.

    I've decided not to add a poll since direct feedback messages are more thorough and ideas can be brainstormed more easily that way. Also, it's easy enough to reply with the numbers and either a +1 or a -1 next to each. :stuck_out_tongue:

    Heyo,
    I absolutely love how you get straight to the point and just speak what you feel. Personally I love these suggestions and think they should be introduced to the community. Keep thinking of these type of things, it's always good for the community to be apart of game updates in the future.

    1) nice idea but can be done with /map
    2) eh not really necessary but if possible may as well do
    3) good idea, hope this could be added

    1. /map is a very useful tool, and most maps now have spawns with signs that detail the name of the map and map creators/helpers, so I dont really see a need for this at the moment.

    2. I honestly dont remember if credits are awarded, but I know that if I'm fighting a ninja and they pearl to their death it displays a message "Ninja fell from a high place" or something similar. I like this idea, a little QOL change.

    3. I very much love this idea, +100, i would definitely go with your latter decision and have it display whoever killed the flag carrier, not just that an archer sniped them. It would be cool to see a similar mechanic for scout swaps, for at the moment when a carrier gets swapped into spawn/the void the scout in question doesnt get credit, and the kill messages themselves dont appear because technically the flag carrier didnt die, so as someone who is stuck in stalemates frequently it would be useful to see a scout recovery message :smile:

    Thank you for the feedback! I was unaware of /map and it makes a lot of sense to have it. On that note it could be nice (if there is not already another command I'm unfamiliar with, lol?) if there were a /prevmap or /lastmap that would display the details of the previous map in the server's rotation in case a map ends and someone wonders "You know, I really enjoyed that map. What was it again? Who designed that one?"

    I don't recall seeing the Ninja fall damage message from damage that is caused directly from the pearl itself - though I do know that if they pearl too high and suffer enough falling damage to die that it displays then.

    As for the flag carrier kill, I would rather have it display for whoever killed the flag carrier as well (rather than just Archers that snipe) - including the case of being swapped into spawn or falling off the map. Maybe if the flag is impossible to drop while falling? Lol. Or if the flag is dropped and then returned to its base (whether it falls out of the map or is returned by that flag's own team), then the latest flag carrier would still be tagged as "Flag Carrier" for a period of time in case they fall out of the map too, or get killed shortly after dropping the flag before dying in despair. I mean really, how many times have the veteran CTF players killed "flag carriers" who weren't flag carriers when they died because they dropped the flag just before they were killed? :innocent:

    BTW, I especially like the +100, LOL. Although it's a first, I can say it's always nice to see that in a response. :grin:
