Hi guys
After Wax and myself have had a week away for various reasons, we'd just like to thank Roger Rabbit and Wildcat for doing the Head Admins jobs on the 3 cod4 servers this past week. And a great job they did too by the looks of things. Quite a trying week by all accounts.

But the new week is about to start and so we will be changing the rotations tomorrow. Just throwing it out there. Is there any requests for maps that we haven't had for a while. On top of one or two that we have had on the test server for the past couple of weeks..


Cheers in advance
Tube.

Well we tried a couple last night and the previous night, on the main TDM that had worked well on the test server. voq and viadvillage. voq had a very mixed reaction and to my surprise, viadvillage which worked really well on the test server, was just hopeless on the main TDM server with 15-20 players on. So we will duck those and we added Vantage point and also by popular request, added the strike_2 Crash_2 and backlot_2 maps again.
We will add another 10 new maps to the test server tonight. Please if you can give them a try and comment. This all help us to know what to add/try,.

NK.. thanks for ideas

1) Rofftops_2 (or Rooftops) Will give it another outing but I have loads on complaint about it on FFA.
2) FarmHouse Will have a test tonight and if ok (ie loads ok) will add it tonight.
3) Block_2 (if available) I can only see Blocks in the library. Will again have a check tonight and see if it loads ok etc, and if all ok will add it tonight.

Thanks for input.

Comments:

Thera: We've had this before. Horrible map, lots of pointless corridors surrounding a central open arena. Tends to end up with people camping dark ledges in the middle and shooting people as they come out of spawn.

Vantagepoint. Way too big. No cover to move. People just sit in spawn and snipe anybody stupid enough to try and move. Nul point! Sorry, une point as it is quite pretty.

On a positive note, I like docks. Nice bit of variety in the map. Can get pinned down in spawn if you have a team that won't try and move and lay down some smoke but that is a player problem not a map problem.

Hi Guys. To the guys that recognize your copies of Pms you sent me last week , don't worry, I'm just trying to explain a point. You can never please everyone. And I hope they will try to remember," One mans Gold is another mans poison." .
I try all maps that people ask for. To the guys that aren't happy with the maps below on the current rotations. Well we try to please all. And maybe some idea's would help pre the rotation change, And then you can get your maps in

However. All opinions are welcome.

Cheers

Part of PM Copies from last week

"Good morning Tube.. Please can you add a few different maps next week. We used to have some that I thought was really good, Blackrock and Thera and Jungle. Please can we have those back


"Hi Tubeslayer, a few of us have played the latest test server maps last week quite regularly, and only Vantage point and Viad village were any good, the others were basic or didn't really work. Please can you add these 2 to the main rotation."


And a couple of others from a few months ago.

"Why when you have all those map do you having boring boring boring stock maps on the the rotation they are just ****"


And on the flip.


"This game wasn't meant to have modded maps on, they don't work most of them. You shoud just stick to the maps that were mean't for the game. Modded maps are " blar bar blar


And many more long deleted.:D


Such is life..;)

You doing a huge great job Tube m8 :)


I think the future of old games is in moded maps....
Even plenty of moded maps are made in a rush ( bad spawns , glitches , too simple , no details , not work , crash servers etc ) ,
we can still find a couple of them which are great .
On WAW , Flatyy put couple of hundreds maps , and we pick up 10 - 15 good maps...( maybe 5 of them are really great )
But but it was worth it to test all of them :)



And thanks to all for your opinions and suggestions :)

As I say. I welcome all Pms for idea's for maps most of all. And also Pm's or messages about the maps that don't work. It all helps I personally like both stock maps and moded maps. I agree when you find a good moded map, its gives a great boost and excitement to the evening.
The most complaints I get is about a bad spawn map. Nothing more annoying than that and those messages are really important. When we test on the test server, if we get 6 on at one time we are lucky. We usually get 2-4 at most. So hard to judge spawns with that few on the test server. And so when we think the map is ok and we add it, sometimes what was good with 2-6 on, is terrible with 15-20. And a thanks to the few that do try the test server and send me feedback.

But I also seem to get complaints about sniper maps. The servers are made up of sniper or campers, call them what you like. I'm probably more in that category. And then we have the rushers. There is probably a 50-50 split in general, But the maps aren't set up as 50/50. More like 70-30 or more, in favor of the rushers. And yet put one large sniper map on, and the complaints come raining in for some reason. We have to try and cater for all guys. Even a large sniper map or 2 in a rotation..That is what snipers do, sit and wait. Yep agree, 50% of maps like that would be tedious. But one or two in rotation for the out and out snipers is only fair.


The aim of it all is purely to keep our servers populated.

So again thanks for feedback. Balanced opinions are always welcome. And your (balanced) idea's.for a rotation

I like Thera :)

But there you go, case in point.

One mans shite is another mans gold. :)

In general I think the rotations are good with a good mix.

My only problem really was when burg and backlot 2 were next to each other in the rotation. That really sucked but probably only for me.

No that is a good point Fergy. My bad. I usually try to have small or medium maps between large map. I must have missed that.

Thanks for feedback.
