Full Rotation Server / CP Map Suggestions V2!!!
« on: February 22, 2014, 05:16:30 PM »
With only dustbowl, gorge and mountainlab it gets somewhat boring. Unfortunately the other official maps (Gravelpit, Egypt, Steel, Junction) makes it hard to keep the server full during the day, and usually empties out the server /sigh. But soon we will be testing out new custom attack/defense maps!

We won't be adding 5CP maps for now as the player-type is really different for 5CP vs A/D. With 5CP you have to both attack and defend, and the rounds are slower and longer (10mins everytime a point is capped). This is the same reason why people who play PL also do not like PLR maps. 5CP is just a category for a different type of playerbase--which we would like to tap into--someday...

So here are some interesting Attack/Defense maps, post your own suggestions as well. and dont forget to vote!!!

General Discussion / 4k TVs are here!
« on: February 11, 2014, 12:32:27 PM »
ridiculous resolution! 3840x2160 but only at 30hz. I can still play at 1920x1080 at 60hz tho. Got it for a really good deal from Amazon Warehouse deals, $550 lol. They said there's scratches on the unit but I can't find any...

Lol I took a screenshot of photoshop. The screen on the top right with the windows logo is 1080p lol...

The screen space is awesome but oh man the buttons and text are so small.

General Discussion / ADDED: New Perma mute/gag functions.
« on: October 31, 2013, 09:05:20 PM »
In response to a growing number of complaints regarding a few of our players. We have added the perma mute & gag functions--previously all you had to do was rejoin and the mute/gag would reset. This is a good solution to players who constantly make the gaming experience a bad one for other players.

Our admin style is usually to leave players alone. We are one of the most lenient and mature servers in Team Fortress, and we would like to keep it that way. So to those who are tired of annoying and/or verbally abusive players, this is our solution. We will start with a 3 or 7 day mute and/or gag. If said player persists after that, a longer mute/gag will be applied.

This was brought on from results of a poll that I conducted for 2 weeks talking to players. Of course the most pervasive issue is Jambster. Most of the players interviewed did not agree on a perma-ban, but most agreed that a mute or temp mute is in order. Here are the results:

The question: Would you prefer if Jambster stopped playing on our server?
answers: Yes, No, Abstain
results: (attached file)

Cheers! and a BIG Thank You to all the players who help to keep our servers a fun and happy place to play in!!!

General Discussion / Expanding the Servers!
« on: August 18, 2013, 09:21:45 AM »
So I would like to start an open discussion to gauge interest and get some ideas from you guys! We have been talking about adding new servers for awhile now. But before adding a 3rd server (or more) we have been thinking about how to change Server #2 which is currently an exact clone of Server #1. Phasma calls it "the waiting room" lol! Because people wait on #2 while on queue for Server #1.

Now the idea is to make Server #2 distinct, so that it has it's own regulars. I suggested that it be an all-talk server, since I myself love all-talk. It would cater to a different set of players. Maybe even add fast respawn to it, and dead talk. More of a fun, easy server.

Now there are also talks of a no-crit server. Perhaps we can have:
Normal Server - Current server #1 stays the same
Easy Server - Server 2, all talk, fast-respawn, etc
Pro Server - Server 3, no crits, 24 player max, geared towards more serious players

We also wanna be in the quickplay or matchmaking.

[big][big]How does the matchmaking work?[/big][/big]
You need to be running a Valve map to be matched, except:
- Any arena map
- cp_manor_event
- cp_degrootkeep
- koth_harvest_event
- tc_hydro
Servers should be running as "vanilla" as possible. In particular, these server tags (sv_tags) will disqualify a server:
- friendlyfire
- respawntimes
- nocrits
- norespawntime
- nodmgspread
- highlander
- noquickplay
Your server should not be password protected
Your server needs to have VAC enabled
Increasing the max player count above 24 will incur a matchmaking scoring penalty, but will not disqualify you from the list

General Discussion / HG PermaBans & VAC Bans
« on: August 16, 2013, 08:45:29 PM »
As you all know VAC Bans are permanent and Valve doesn't take it lightly. I checked HG (HyperionGaming) Bans and compared them to VAC Bans to see how accurate we are. This is all the HG PermaBans from 06/12 to 08/16.,0&advType=length
* 08/04-08/16 are very recent and valve usually takes 2 weeks to a few months.
* Accounts that are not VAC Banned are usually one-time-use accounts, that were not caught on other servers. They are now abandoned accounts.

Overall I think we're pretty accurate. :)

Half-acre just now ended where the cart was still about 10 seconds away from final point and blue team won. I'll have to look this up see if there's an updated map.

General Discussion / Glad they fixed the domination bug!

- Fixed a scoreboard bug where domination count was reduced by 2 when a dominated player left the server

Remember how the domination number was always off versus the number of people you were dominating.
