This news archive lists Staff mb (Message Board) posts & events that have appeared on the public UR news feed

User Guidelines:
- Each event is listed in chronolgical order, descending from the past to most recent.
- Multiple events that happened on the same day are separated by number
- The first line shows the title of the event.
- The next lines show a summary. (The 1st few lines of the event)
- The last line is a link/URL to the full story. (IF a URL exists)
- The URL gives additional insight because the info in the discussions usually clarify anything seemingly unclear by the staff.
- Unfortunately, the Staff mb doesn't have an archive of everything that happened on the public news feed
(I.E. Some character & CR release stories are missing)
- I only included events that affected UR internationally, hence "UR International News"
(I.E. Character stories, new features, CR stories, comic releases, etc)
- I did not include: technical bugs/upgrades, new payment options, staff promotions, scam warnings, country exclusive events, etc

I used my best judgement on what to publicly reveal. But worry not! I keep a personal copy of the RAW, uneditted archive from the EN staff board & public news just in case major edits/additions are needed for future UR Int'l News Archive drafts.

ELO Mode modification proposal
In order to add more fair play (and so.. interrestigness) to the ELO mode, we have read the message boards and an idea seems very interresting: limit the ability to challenge another ELO player based on both ELO values. We don't want to penalize refusals in general, because we think...

Bridget - new stats redux

Small change during daily tournaments
Starting with today's 12:00 (paris) tournament, the online player list will be randomized in all "tournaments rooms" and only during tournaments time. This would even the chances to get challenged for everyone and also reduce cheating.
