Servers Feedback / Re: Scoring
« on: August 30, 2011, 12:50:24 AM »
Well originally when you killed someone, you got the same number of points they lost. But you'd eventually even out and stop gaining points. This was frustrating, at least to me, because I felt like I had to always play my best, or else I'd lose points.

So we changed it so the victim lost half the points the attacker gained.

Is there anything in particular about scoring you don't like?

A lot has been going on lately. Since we put up the Payload server, we've been modifying server plugins to tailor them to our needs. Here's what we're currently working on:

Class Balance: This plugin offers a dynamic and very customizable approach to limiting classes. It also sends notifications to players if a class is overflowed. We currently only plan on targeting a few classes. More info in the future.

Mapchooser Advanced: Further extends our own version of mapchooser exended, adding a great deal more depth and control to how maps are chosen, ensuring players always have an enjoyable map to play next.

Donator Perks: Slot reservations and preferential treatment by certain mods, as well as access to commands such as votekick, voteban, and others.

General Discussion / Server Rules
« on: August 19, 2011, 07:01:54 PM »
The rules are in place to ensure players have an enjoyable time on the server.

The TF2 server rules are as follows:
  • No foul language. Be polite and respect all players.
  • No douchebag behavior. No offensive sprays or names.
  • Do not impersonate another player or clan.
  • No racism. No name calling.
  • No cheating, hacking and exploiting.
  • Do not stack teams. No spawn camping.
  • Respect all admins and do not pretend to be one.

Regarding the first rule, some cursing is allowed, but for example, repeatedly cursing at someone is typically going too far.

Feel free to post any questions or comments on the rules here.

Servers Feedback / Class Balance and Class Limits
« on: August 19, 2011, 06:48:00 PM »
The most common complaint on the server is about too many people playing one class. On the payload server we use a Class Limit plugin. Currently only the spy class is limited, and this is because we found that too many spies, especially good ones, would make games unfun.

Feel free to discuss anything regarding class balance or class limits here.

We run many mods, some of them being custom, on our server. We are constantly tweaking them, and getting feedback is an important part of getting their settings right.

If you have any feedback or comments, please post it here.

Here are some mods in particular I would like feedback for:
  • Mapchooser (the map vote that appears near the end of a map)
  • Auto Balance/Scramble
