Suggestions / Re: Other payload maps?
« on: December 31, 2012, 04:55:03 PM »
This is something we're considering. I'll try to take a look at those custom maps sometime soon.

it's funny that the level of skill of the players are different at various times of the day. Best time to play against good players are at night from 6pm to 12am.
I'm a really really good sniper early in the morning  :P

You could try this: . It will make the panel transparent.

Payload Server / Re: pl_badwater christmas themed

NS2 added some christmas decoration to the staging area or "ready room" in all the official maps in a recent update. It even allows you to throw snowballs. Fun stuff. Wish TF2 would do this. Although, I think you can throw snowballs, right?

Looks like the vote banned him temporarily. If anyone recorded a demo, please upload it here:


Complains/Bans / Re: ataris 2

Just to clarify, I talked to both ataris and missa and looked through chat logs before issuing a ban. What I saw was intentional and repeated usage of upsetting remarks from ataris toward missa. Some of it spilled into this very thread, as well as ataris's steam profile.

That's not to say missa did not provoke ataris or say upsetting things toward him. From what I can tell, both acted immaturely. But since both are long time community members and contributors, I tried to be lenient on each. We have no tolerance for harassment because it creates an unwelcoming environment, so normally it's a permanent ban. But I opted for a 7-day ban instead.

But I believe, judging from some past complaints, that part of the problem is the usage of mics and chat. Here's some suggestions that will hopefully prevent this kind of thing from escalating:
- Test your mic volume. If your volume is too loud, or you're talking too close to your mic, it may aggravate others.
- Try not to shout into your mic or dominate voice chat. People tend to get annoyed.
- Try not to taunt players too often in chat. Taunting is part of the game, but spamming a message every kill is overdoing it.

Somewhat related is complaints of team stacking. My stance on steam stacking is that if you want to play on the same team as your friend, that's perfectly fine. The rule on team stacking is mainly to prevent whole clans from stacking one team. It's not to prevent people from playing with a friend. But sometimes it chains, and multiple friends end up on the same team, and that may stack the teams in their favor. For that scenario, we have auto scramble.

If a player is auto scrambled or auto balanced and attempts to switch teams, there's a 4-minute wait period. But that, and other settings, can be tweaked. All it takes is to create a thread and start a discussion. I've always listened to players and have on numerous occasions adjusted values for gscramble.

Updated the map chooser on both payload servers. Please let me know if there are any issues.

Edit: Reverted the changes until I fix a bug

There aren't currently any reserved slots, but we'll get them in as soon as we find a suitable mod.

If you want to add to steam favorites, add port 27086 instead:

News and Updates / Lag Issues
« on: October 28, 2012, 08:45:00 PM »
I believe we fixed the major lag issue on Payload, Votation, and MvM Public. But we're still seeing some network loss and are still looking into that issue.

Meanwhile, if you still experience major lag spikes, please post here. Be sure to include the name of the server, time of day, and how many players were playing.
