Welcome to HaxballTube!

HaxballTube Blog

We're back!

Hey everyone! Sorry for the extended downtime! As some of you are aware, I've recently started a new job, and things have been extremely busy. As such, I haven't had time for anything Haxball-related. So I've had to fit fixing the HaxballTube server in between everything else I have to do, and unfortunately, that meant that HaxballTube didn't get fixed quickly.

On the bright side, things seem to be slowing down a bit, and I should have some time to work on improving HaxballTube and making sure it stays up and running!

Oh, and why did HaxballTube go down in the first place? We have too many replays! With over 1 million replays, our server's hard disk filled up, and caused the database to crash and get corrupted, which required a fair amount of work to resolve. But have no fear! No replays were lost in the process!

Update: Country selection menu

HaxBall now lets you change your country and location, to do so go to the options menu and click the “Change Country” button.

The way in which HaxBall detects your location is not infallible and often results in a wrong country. This change will let players correct it when it’s wrong (Or whenever they feel like it).

Enjoy!

Edit: Changing countries from inside a room is now disabled, to access the menu you can open the options menu from the rooms list.

SPHB Hall of Fame - Season 16 Inductees


SPHB is proud to announce the induction of following two members to the SPHB Hall of Fame.


INDUCTEES


Boss

Boss was one of the first legends of SPHB. He was without a doubt one of the best players in the league for the first two seasons. He was a balanced player and he know what he wanted to do. I know not everyone knows the guy but he was one of the best. He won the cup with these follow Hall of Famers: Jim, aeh, WHY and Gerrard. Back to Back is hard to do, but as a player he found a way. He was always cool to have in the locker room because Guite would be freaking the fuck out before every match. Boss would say a few words before the game and he'd be ready to go. Me and Gerrard never understood it but we know what presence that guy had. He wasn't the most flashiest, he wasn't the most dominating, but he know how to win and was a great guy to know. I think he's been way over due. It's time for Boss to get enshrined.  - Pavelski

                                             

skunk

In his early days as one of the original elite goalkeepers skunk was a cornerstone of the Islanders as they rose to become one of the early dominant forces in haxball.  Backstopping players such as Dr. Rad, c4v, and mongol through multiple playoff runs and victories, skunk was perhaps the first to define what a franchise goalkeeper could be in this league.

As impressive as his on field play is the way he carries himself amongst both his teammates and his peers.  skunk is perhaps the epitome of a great teammate... he was a mature player whom would bring calm to the chaos that often befalls a team when things weren't going as planned.  He could be relied upon to show up and put in a great effort.

When his tenure as an Islander came to an end, skunk continued on playing meaningful minutes -- including a stint as a GM -- through to season 15 and ranks among the goalkeepers with the most playtime in league history -- all of it in the premiere division.

Anyone lucky enough to have been on one of his teams can attest to the fact that the league would be a much better place if we had a couple more skunks around here. - SirDgbyChknCsr
