Lofty suggestions for the official servers

Lord KelvinLord Kelvin Senior
edited May 2008 in Official Servers
I've rarely seen all four of our official servers full since like the first two weeks of the 2.0 release.
These days, I've only seen like one server completely full and the other half full during the weekends nights at tops.
so why don't we make use of the empty servers??

my suggestion is this:
keep the official #1 and 2 as it is,
but for #3, include ONLY the custom maps like pvk_keep, pvk_sanctuary and etc
and for #4, only SURF MAPS wink.gif

I think this would help to attract more players in to the official servers.

your opinions rolleyes.gif ??

    I think that is a perfectly good idea, my only issue with it is ranking. I don't want to play on surf maps if I'm being ranked. smile.gif

    because if you put custom maps on an official server, it makes the maps official tongue.gif

    yeah my K/D ratio dropped by .3 points after playing in banjo's server several days biggrin.gif
    indeed surf map server should be excluded from the PVK stats ranking

    I guess it really does throws away the whole point of having "offical" servers
    but this way it can attract players bored from the official maps
    and it can be supporting to the amateur mappers

    Well, some custom maps are needed, I think, at least till the new patch brings us new maps. Hooray! The problem is, there are no good coustom maps released yet, at least I haven't seen any, despite pvk_aztec maybe (was that the correct name?)

    despite my previous post, I would love to see a good server with a "best of" player made maps. It would encourage more people to come into the game.

    Start your own server? Pay for your own server etc.

    Surf maps should definitely not be on the Official servers and although custom map server would be a nice idea, it's hard enough maintaining the servers, to keep up with all the custom maps is a lot of work. I don't think it's going to happen.

    i really really like to see custom maps here. REALLY
    there are maps made of win and epicness
    but theyre also maps made of stupidity and fail.

    my list whould.

    pvk_helmsdeep (too good. could be a official )
    pvk_seafight (when he release a new version )
    pvk_skyfight (my idea, not released )
    pvk_scumbar (a must have. )
    pvk_loot_beta1
    pvk_holygrounds

    that are enough.
    theyre playable, and not THAT beta (eccept seafight.. )

    TO surf maps.
    HELL NO!! ITS SAD THAT THEY TAKE OVER PVKII!!!!
    SURF BELONG TO CS:S!!

    I just want to wish that alltalk is turned back on... it would be easier to talk with me friends on the other team. Also it would be much easier to find someone mic spamming without having to switch teams and such stuff like that.

    In favor here. I wouldn't mind surfmaps either, they can be fun once in a while, even though most are plain impossible. ;o

    EDIT: oh, just noticed the dates. Whatever, noone checks this forum anyway. tongue.gif

    Surf Maps just don't belong in PVKII, shut up about it. Let map creators come up with original plans.
