TDM server idea
« on: June 18, 2012, 11:56:05 PM HST »
So as some of you may know, the Goonhaven servers have shut down due to internal conflict. I was thinking that maybe since some of the Aloha CTF servers aren't as popular as the others, maybe one of them could be turned into a "Goon Assault" TDM map, basically a flat map that the players build into whatever battlefield they wish. TDM + Aloha = awesome.

What do yall think?

Well I don't disagree with a new type of gameplay, I feel that we should have at least 1 type of each game play available for variety. However, I do disagree with removing hallway considering it's popularity. If you get rid of hallway, you might as well get rid of pinpoint. That's just not smart. We now have 12 servers as it is, so the question is which one. Well, the new dedust2 24/7 obviously runs 24/7 and runs in rotation on last team standing as well. To me, the 24/7 would seem to get boring after awhile, but then again look at hallway and pinpoint. People simply love it. So, the options are to make another server and run it or consider taking down ddust2, or classic gen. Its really all debatable and no one really knows for sure how it will play out until we try it. But mark my words, if you get rid of a popular server, someone else will pick it up and start running it and therefore you lose your clientel. Case in point - The Goonhavens. As soon as they shut down, everyone jumped in and made their own little goonhavens and now here we are debating the same thing. Like i said, its a good idea but substituting one for the other is just not smart. Before any decision is made you relly need to find out the statisics of each server and the popularity and then the one with the least amount of gameplay would be the obvious choice.

That's why I put the two least popular servers in the poll. Hallway and ClassicGen are no where near as popular as Last team, pinpoint, babel, infiltration, zombies, or tog o war.

I'd say to get rid of classic gen, as Hallway is very very popular.

hallway is one of the most popular servers. classicgen is probably the least popular.

We now have 12 servers as it is, so the question is which one. Well, the new dedust2 24/7 obviously runs 24/7 and runs in rotation on last team standing as well. To me, the 24/7 would seem to get boring after awhile, but then again look at hallway and pinpoint. People simply love it. So, the options are to make another server and run it or consider taking down ddust2, or classic gen. Its really all debatable and no one really knows for sure how it will play out until we try it.     

the 24/7 de_dust2 server is a test. if it becomes popular enough i'd like to keep it going. it's a very popular Counter-Strike map, many 24/7 servers for it. seems like a good map for arena. we'll see.

we could always add another server but we should try to replace one instead if possible.

Well, we could have this, but really, 'Minit US- Assault' already fulfills this role, once it gets higher up on the list, it's going to always be full. I really just don't see enough demand for another goon assault server, one is enough. However, the classic gen server is getting hardly any activity, so changing it to something else would be an idea.

I didnt even realize there was a de_dust server until it was mentioned. Stupid me. I think if we can make classic actually a CLASSIC 0.30 or something, that will be great.

About GH closing there servers, I must tell you Izzy that we need to seriously review who the site admins are (ahem StackOverflow), since your the ONLY site admin that does not have there "collective heads up there asses" and listens to all opinions. I thank you Izzy for doing this.
