Server Rotation in 2018?

Postby Raiser » Fri Dec 29, 2017 5:59 pm

This is what I just read that MAD etwas said.

I wanted to start this post or thread up cause I would love a Rotation.

Beach gets so boring after awhile i always notice a lot of people leaving but then it gets switched to frostbite or Ice and the server fills up so fast.

I wish there was a Rotation or if not then Beach, Frostbite, Ice 24/7 because those are the best maps on the game. Here's what he said and y'all can respond or follow up however y'all want.


set mapname1 "map mp_beach"
set mapname2 "map axis_complex"
set mapname3 "map mp_castle"
set mapname4 "map mp_beach"
set mapname5 "map mp_schwalbe"
set mapname6 "map mp_communique"
set mapname7 "map mp_beach"
set mapname8 "map te_escape2"
set mapname9 "map te_frostbite"
set mapname10 "map mp_beach"
set mapname11 "map mp_chateau"
set mapname12 "map mp_keep"
set mapname13 "map mp_beach"
set mapname14 "map tundra_rush_beta"
set mapname15 "map mp_wizernes"
set mapname16 "map mp_beach"
set mapname17 "map mp_village"
set mapname18 "map mp_password2"
set mapname19 "map mp_beach"
set mapname20 "map mp_ice"
set mapname21 "map mp_pak_te_kungfugrip"
set mapname22 "map mp_beach"
set mapname23 "map mml_church_v1"
set mapname24 "map mp_sub"
set mapname25 "map mp_beach"
set mapname26 "map mp_theriver"
set mapname27 "map te_ufo"

i'm just dreaming :)
but serious? what speaks against a rotation (with a bigger amount of beach)?
right now its like there are 20 people on the server. so if a vote gets called u need 11 F1 votes to make it pass. maximum of 10 would hit F1, 5 would hit F2 cos they only want to play beach, 3 would be ok with another map, but not the voted one, 2 people are taking a piss and miss the vote. vote failed (there are some exceptions like frostbite).
better force them (with a rotaion) to play other maps, specially with the fast download speeds on the server. people will get used to it. they won't quit wolf, cos some map is not bein played. why not even get more players thru it?

i absolutely agree with raiser.
unfortunately this will never happen. we are gonna stuck on beach and frostbite on ecgn forever.
we got a rotation on MaD with like 15 different maps (that we even change every couple of months) and it works just fine, noone leaves the game cos theres some map someone dislikes. its still the same game. people wanna play rtcw and not mp_beach 24/7. "oh its the password2 map - im gonna uninstall wolf" <- not gonna happen.
im super thankful for euro and villain changing the maps now and then, but please - there are tons of maps on ecgn server, lets just play more than 3 of em.

You can't have that many custom maps on a pure server.

If there's some kind of consensus about what custom maps to have on server that's fine...Most of the ones listed already are available to be voted on.

Rotation will just prevent people from joining in the first place.

Voting is enabled so if people want to play a map they can vote it on.

Players being away taking a piss prevents them from voting? Yeah OK.
If enough people want to play a map the vote will pass.

Rotation always kill the server... What are you talking about beside that voting is enable, but must of the time nobody wants rotation just to play 2 or 3 minutes round because the docs runners. No way!

If players went back and read old posts before starting new ones,they would see the same subject brought up many times over the years and why rotation is not on the server. It's interesting the players who brought up rotation have nothing else to argue about when MAA explains why. If there is a question as to why or why not then do some research. I am 100% sure you'll find the answer on the forum.

I would love to play more regularly maps like Kungfu, wizernes, Tundra Rush, mp_river, etc.. and even 'new' maps like Schwalbe or Church.

However, I'm against rotation. Map change should first of all be possible by voting (which you can). Map change should also be possible based on the circumstances. If on a Friday evening there are 40 people on beach, an admin should often change to bigger maps like depot or tram. If there are only 8 people on there is no need to change to another map. Beach is the best map to attract people so beach should definately stay the standard map (no rotation). Once a certain number has been reached (20+) more map changes should be made.

If a map change doesnt happen by voting because 3-4 people are blocking it constantly and beach has been played 100 times and the circumstances are good (a minimum of 14-16 players), an admin should definately once every few rounds force a map change. If too many people are leaving (less then 12 players) the map should be set back to beach (untill enough people are on again to change the map once every few rounds).
