Yesterday i noticed how the server emptied again when the round ended. Me and Jameless discussed Hyce's suggestion and we think we should change it to this.

Agreed, because once people get on it, it's easy to maintain them. But as soon as a round ends / server crash / anything stops, people just leave.
I do the same on some servers, im playing a good game, then when it ends, i stop playing tf2 and go do something else.

Not a necropost since the last post was 9 days ago.

We made these changes and it appeared to help a bit. The server just emptied about 20 minutes ago and has people in it for quite a while. I think this will work nicely but I think we have to perhaps advertise or include in the hostname the fact that it has RTV available. This way people don't see Rotation and then sit there thinking WTF?

Therefore i request on the admins to make steam events with our PULP steam community group to get the server filled. There are already a few people who have it in their list and will join when they see other people playing, so it's not that hard.

Also we should try to expand our steam community group by sending invites. Who will be the volunteers for these tasks this week?

Next week we can have some other admins do this job.

This is still a problem. Today i joined and made an event. I almost left and then Lieutennet joined. And after that Ninji came and someone else. We were playing for 5 minutes and then 3 other people joined all at the same time and then Google and Rusty and Gibbo joined. Later Nico and bullet dropped by and we had 14 players for a while. So it is not that hard to get the server filled. I remember Jonesie volunteered for this job but i don't think he managed to do it. Who else want's to do this job this week? We gotta make a success out of that server!


Maybe change the default map the server starts up with? Currently it's freight. Most popular TF2 maps ever:

1 valve map (or included in official release) ctf_​2fort
2 valve map (or included in official release) pl_​goldrush
3 valve map (or included in official release) cp_​dustbowl
4 valve map (or included in official release) pl_​badwater
5 valve map (or included in official release) ctf_​turbine
6 valve map (or included in official release) cp_​granary
7 valve map (or included in official release) pl_​hoodoo_​final
8 valve map (or included in official release) ctf_​doublecross
9 valve map (or included in official release) cp_​badlands
10 achievement_​idle

Current maps in the cycle:

cp_gravelpit
cp_dustbowl
cp_granary
cp_well
cp_freight_final1
cp_steel
cp_badlands
pl_goldrush
cp_fastlane
ctf_turbine
pl_badwater
plr_pipeline
cp_gorge
cp_egypt_final
pl_hoodoo_final
koth_sawmill
cp_yukon_final
koth_viaduct
ctf_sawmill
ctf_doublecross
koth_nucleus

It would help maybe minimize the mapchoice if more members could respond to this topic:

Feel free to add it to the hostname, although it's also advertised during the game.

I would help out with the server, however I'd rather not when I have my own CGMZ server in which I have head admin, and I can pick the maps, etc.

The way we get things to work in my clan is simple:

1. Me and Kane the Messiah start a match, 1v1.
2. Some of our closer friends (Jake, Mr. Luck, Drillmaster) will come and join.
3. I spam everyone in my friends list who is online or in TF2 (usually that ain't on pulp, don't like spamming y'all) to come join.
4. Random people join, and after 30 minutes or so you get a decently full server.

I was really pleased when I saw a couple PULP guys come. I've had jameless pop in unnounced, along with afro.

No it didn't, we recently moved the -CGMZ- server from Sunmark's house to Kane the Messiah's, thus giving it a new IP.

-CGMZ- Server: 98.193.118.32:27015

Why would we do that when kane the messiah has like 5 pc's and only really uses 2? We could have 2 servers! Screw paying for servers. Homegrown are more manageable AND free!

Lol well Kane has his nice desktop, his nice laptop (the 2 he uses), his old desktop (circa 05-06), an older desktop (2001 ish, this is our server), and a really crappy old PC he uses as a data server because it has a processor in the megahertz range, lol.

Let's see...
Packerd Bell Pentium II PC from the mid 90's (originally win95) --> scavenged for RAM and retired.
Custom builded Pentium IV PC from around 2000 (originally win98) --> retired after scavenging CD burner, RAM and 12GB HDD.
HP Pavilion something desktop from 2001 (first model with win XP) --> still in use by parents, parts are outdated and starting to fail.
HP Pavilion DV6 1020ED laptop from 2009 (originally Vista) --> going to be replaced next year by a newer gaming/entertainment laptop.

Back on-topic: We should put some more effort into making the stock server more popular. I tried an event twice but no one came Sad Ow, today I didn't joined because we just finished a 2.5 hour pug xD

Yes i noticed it takes a while after you do an event. You just have to be prepared to play for 30 minutes with just 1 or 2 other people. As soon as we had 6 players it filled pretty quickly to the point where we had 18 players.

gg vlad and dumbasscus!
