Hello Everyone.

Today's topic is important, because it is about the future of the server.
Unfortunately, in the past weeks, few people posted in the forum and played on the server.

So we want your opinion to be heard.

Here is the idea.
We are thinking about changing the formula from : Orange X3 24/7 to a OrangeMap Rotation 24/7 server.

The new server would include Orange X3 and more orange maps like Orange X4, X2, Cross, Towers, Payload.
all the best Orange Map out there!

Now it's your turn to tell us what YOU think about this idea.

Tell us if

-YOU APPROVE - DISAPROVE
-WHY?
-IF YES, WHAT MAPS YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE INCLUDED?

Thanks for answering all those questions because they will have an impact on the server.
Don't miss that opportunity!

I do not agree with this. There have been many players on the server these past few weeks, in fact our server has gotten a higher ranking if you watch the global gametracker website. I also made a forum topic about this 6 days ago where it was so busy that players were on the server all night from saturday on sunday so it was never empty last weekend: http://forum.pulpfortress.com/news-f1/the-second-milestone-t230.htm

I DO agree that it has been very quiet on the forum these last few days. But i'm sure it will come back to life soon! I have some catching up to do myself but i was wondering what Panda and Tendo's plans are with the pugs? That will bring some life too i hope.

About the map rotation i think we could try it for a week. I wonder what other members think.

There is a differnece between a server being full of random person and full of it's members. That's what I meant.

I think it would be nice to play some other maps then Orange_x3 for a change. When I read about the pug the first thing that went trough me was 'INTEL!' followed by NO ORANGE X3!
I dont play on other servers, I dont play a lot of games to begin with. Sometimes when I see how much time people spend in-game I wonder where they got the time to do so...

Ow well, we could try it. Every now and then I hear people complain about orange_x3 being a sniperfest and that they only play on pulp because of the people. Funny thing ey? People complain about the server, the map and about mic-spammers but they always return to Pulp. Must be the power of the Power :p

OK but remember that people complaining stand out easier then people who are NOT complaining and just like orange.
If a 100 people like something and 5 people don't they will make their voices heard but does it mean that things should change per sé? Also there are a lot of people who play orange because it's a lag free experience like Taboo.

When we do pugs the intention was to another map from the beginning but most people voted for Orange in the poll remember?

I think we should seriously consider changing to orange_x7. I know of a server that plays it in an orange rotation, and it's not too dissimilar from x3 but it has a few key differences. A trench at the back of each side allows people to travel from spawn to point two without being sniped. The first/last points are on platforms surrounded by a short wall, making sentries realistic. The top point has a roof if i remember correctly, preventing random demospam. And most importantly, there are ramps into the spawn so classes can actually get to the resupply cabinets. (however, the spawn is blocked out by one of those invisible wall things with the red circle with a line through it) I seriously think this map fixes a lot of balance issues that orange_x3 does not adress, and we should try it.

Well i'm for it. Nico, can you turn this topic into a poll: Do you think we should try out different orange maps for 1 week?

Also we need to decide how the map rotation works. How many rounds per map? Time limit yes/no? Sudden death yes/no? Vote at the end of the round yes/no?

I think that rather than rounds, it should be a time limit. Round length in orange varies greatly, I've seen teams get steamrolled in 2 minutes and I've seen matches go on for 5 hours. I think maybe 1 hour per map would be a good choice, maybe 2 hours. Also, don't forget a RTV (rock the vote) feature.

I definitely think this would be great. It's still an Orange server, so it stays true to PULP, but will be different everytime you join.
If the maps are good enough, we could prolly do pugs on em too...

Well it's not incredibly well known, it might only be played by that one server. I have it on my computer in my TF2 files somewhere, I'll see if I can find it tomorrow.

I wouldn't mind a rotation every now and again. Playing the same map over and over will get old over time. But maybe just like three orange maps, with X3 included?

Can everyone post links to the maps that they would like to see? I agree that we could make a top3 to start with. I have also downloaded a few that i will try out locally.

Further i propose that we postpone this rotation till after the scrim of next week. I am currently working on the achievements plugin, scrim plugin and JameLess is already researching how we can modify the server with rockthevote so we can do the map rotation. So there is a lot going on.

If you could get permission, I would love to run "cp_orange_x4_viper". The tunnels make orange_x a lot more fun.
They still run it on the Team Viper server, but their server has devolved into a 100% crit server...

Although it's not technically orange, "cp_spire". It's reminiscent of orange_x while still being unique in its own way.

EDIT: This looks interesting.

I second both of Zurkov's maps and also this one:

The picture is of the v1 map but they're basically the same.

CP_Orange_Cross v2:

I didn't feel like starting a new thread for this, but could we have a test run of this map on one of the servers? It looks really promising.

I'm always in to test a new map, especially one that requires people to work as a team n.n
