comment Implementing an online database
thank you, at first this didn't sound like the answer i was looking for, but after googling for the past 2 days it all became clear. i create a database, put it on a server, then i create a script as an interface to run on the server and use URLs to query the server and recieve or send the information i want, it's exactly like you've said, i'm just a dummy, thank you so much.

comment SFML Segmentation Fault when using VBOs?
do you link SFML as static or dynamic? the default build is for dynamic linking, when trying to link it as static, you'll get segmentation fault after exiting drawing functions, don't quote me on this, though, i'm no expert, i just had a similar issue and that was the problem

comment Good way to play a sound when something happens? How does this sound?
this is how it's done, you should put your rendering in a separate class aswell, if you haven't already (as in, you shouldn't have a draw() function in the Character class).

comment How to determine an “Assists” statistic
in WoW, f.e. nobody cares about the kill count in battlegrounds, because it's not elevated at all, it's there, but nobody ever cares, either you get the flag in WSG or hold blacksmith in AB (and other) or you lose, nobody thinks about the game beyond that and i think that's something that all the moba games could learn from, nobody ever says "stop dying omfg", people think more in terms of "we need defense on lumbermil", WoW, i'm positive, doesn't ever get called a strategy game, but somehow it extrudes more strategy from people than DotA does

comment How to determine an “Assists” statistic
your idea of eliminating individual kill counter does seem like something that could be done in team games where kills don't matter (this excludes shooters pretty much entirely), in games like DotA people can get 5 kills in a lane, seemingly be strong, but they'll lose because other person on their team keeps dying, a situation like "omg, i got 10 kills and we still lost, this is bull@#$%", the kill counters in these games ruin alot, because they take away the focus from the goal, which is destroying towers and eventualy the throne/tree and not getting more kills

comment How to determine an “Assists” statistic
IMHO it's a bad idea to credit people who do the most damage in a shooter game. It's going to get apparent that somebody who fired the last shot didn't get the kill, it's better if people get mad at each other for "stealing kills", than the game being "unfair".
