CitroMaindhow could you stay ubered?

Hackers could use an "exploit" (I don't know what to call it) with the Phlog to remain ubercharged indefinitely when taunting, allowing them to block a cart or point indefinitely.

mlnsbleghfarecwhats the difference between the 3rd place medal and the participant medal wtfI think 3rd bronze, participant brown?

So when we were doing it, 3rd was meant to be bronze and participation was meant to be a wood texture, though I think this wasn't communicated so we decided to just reuse the 3rd place medals but edit something, I'm not sure.

There's a bit of shine on the right side of the 3rd place medal, other than that there's no difference.

If you look close it is a different texture but that's not going to differentiate well on a small medal. I bet they will look reasonably different when in game. The OWL/OZF prem medals have this problem, when you see at a photo of them they look silver, but when you get into game and properly see the specular effects on them it looks platinum as intended.

maybe you should consider upgrading to an os that isn't considered fully obsolete by it's manufacturer

I didn't think pre-ordering the soundtrack vinyl could get any better, I was wrong.

Comparing a lot of the points on the 3rd place medal vs the Participant medal it appears the 3rd Place medal is slightly lighter in color.
Checked at 5 different areas on the medals and it was fairly consistent that the RGB values for the participant were 5-10 lower than the same area on the 3rd placemedal.

Ex.
165 113 74 - 3rd Place
156 109 66 - Participant

These colors are definitely way to similar though.

Are they very simmilar but off for everyone else, or just full on identical

asking b/c red-green colorblind and wanna know if regular-sighted people can actually see the difference

or if they get to go insane with me

They look totally identical to me. It honestly doesn't even look bronze. They both just look like wooden medals rofl

Here is the pixel by pixel difference of bronze and participant: http://i.imgur.com/0PQbl56.png
If it's black, that means the images were the same there. There's a tiny bit of shine, and (possibly because of the shine) there's a difference of <10 in each RGB channel for the medal itself, like comanglia found, but it's really not enough to actually notice. The ribbons are the exact same.

For reference, here's gold and silver's difference: http://i.imgur.com/OOk9gEG.png
Just to show what two different images would look like compared.

They're pretty much impossible to tell the difference except for the little bit of extra shine.
