DoTF - Rotation - RTV?

Post by Joystick on 2014-09-18, 12:20 am

Why are we always on DoTF anymore? I mean it's an okay map to play on every once in awhile, but I never see the rotation active.

Edit: And I don't know much as to how servers in MB2 work, I haven't been here all that long really. But I never see a working rtv system although people always jokingly "rtv" in the chat. Is rtv dead or was it just abused as all hell--or is there some other reason, e.g. just never getting around to installing it? 

I'm curious is all.

Edit 2: I ask because whenever I get on, theres actually not an admin active for awhile, even though I do know we have an extensive list of admins now. Would just be nice to be able to change the map without an active administrator, and rtv seems to be a decent way to do it.

I think to say we are always on DotF is a bit of an exaggeration. The server is set back to rotation 90% of the time before an admin leaves the server, and the server is almost always on rotation if there is no admin present. We play several different maps, even CMP, which is completely uncommon in MBII. If you look here: http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/23.108.65.166:29070/

Scroll down a bit and there will be a graph regarding the maps we play and you can see DotF makes up not even half of that. The only reason it's so high on the graph is because DotF is the first map on our rotation and the server idles on it when there's no one playing. DotF always seems to attract a lot of people. Once the people join, the map will eventually change following rotation. I'm glad to see you're voicing your opinion and it is greatly appreciated, but I feel it might be a tad exaggerated. As for RTV, in my experience I have never seen it work out well for servers. It is always abused in some type of way, fills the chat up with a lot of spam, people RTV the map and then RTV it again after a few rounds, or change it to a stupid map that will eventually kill the server and then the server is left on said stupid map. I would possibly be willing to give RTV a try but I've never seen it work out well. I think we can have a vote on the forum and see how many people would want RTV on the server; if majority wins then we will add it.

Also, I feel our server by far has the most active admins out of any US server. There is rarely ever a time where the server is populated without at least one admin online. If not, there would be one on Steam, or even TeamSpeak. To be honest, I don't quite know what you're smoking, Joy. Whatever it is pass it this way, I'd like to be in this state of delusion you seem to be in.

The DotF may have been an exaggeration somewhat, but I'd have to disagree with it being set back to rotation 90% of the time.  When admins do come on, they do change the map, but when they leave they seem to forget to set the vstr. This is my opinion, but I very rarely see it on a rotation.

Duly noted, my friend. I will see to it that all admins make sure to set the server back on rotation before leaving if they have taken it off. I appreciate you expressing your opinion.

It was stuck on dotf last night.

The solution is clear. Make me an admin and tell me how to set it back on rotation. I promise, my reign shall be swift and brutal. Or the opposite.

Bump, because we've been off rotation all day today. As fun as DS and lunar are, no one wants to play 100 rounds in a row of them. Being off rot when no admin is around really kills the pop.

We've had a lot of admins changing the damn map lately and then getting off without restoring!  It's not that hard to restore the rotation!!!  Especially if the map is in the rotation already... You simply use the command to change to that certain map in the rotation and it will continue to rotate after that!  If you're going to wreck the rotation and bail don't even bother logging into smod...

As far as RTV - I don't think we should ever get it...  The spam is real with that pos.

I think we need to rethink our map rotation (add and remove some maps) and then we could pin this rotation in our 'updates' section so that all admins are aware of the specific rotation so that they can easily change the map without wrecking the rotation (if the map in question is in the rotation).

DOTF is good for building a population because that's what people want.

DotF really isn't that great for building pop. I'd say it's pretty detrimental to pop actually when you consider who the server's regulars are. Haven's been sitting empty off rotation on DotF all day, while Pande's on a rotation and populated....

^^^

Really, it's less of what map the server is on and more along the lines of the population that's already there. AOD gets all the population because there's always a couple AOD members without lives there.

Edit: And by God, if I have to learn to write in python to make a simple !nextmap vote script, I will if that'll get it put on the server. No nominating random maps, just voting to go to the next map on the rotation.
