I need to hire some coders... I need to hire some coders ;)

Yes, probably, in fact I'd say it's mandatory. If GUI can't be simple
stupid it means it's either broken or the idea behind it too complex. Good
games (what I consider good games) are very easy to grasp. See pacman,
tetris, doom, all of them have this very obvious aspect and need only view
extra hud candy. IMHO the only need for a complex hud is when you get
involved in chats, remote servers and the rest. But for local game, KISS.

That idea is pretty good, maybe we could just say "an any time the sum of
frag counts must be 0". This solves the problem of new entrants as well.

Have a nice day,
