Hey all! Let me start off by saying that the improvements to the server have been in general, kick-ass! I agree that we should sometimes try something new in an effort to improve game play and overall enjoyment on the server. Unfortunately, I feel that one of the recent changes detracts from my overall enjoyment of the server: whereas before, the initial zombies would spawn wherever that player was, now those players are suddenly whisked to the spawn. I just wanted to see what others think about it? I recommend returning it to the "spawn-where-you-are" format. Pros of the first zombie of the round appearing at spawn: 1) ...? Cons of the first zombie of the round appearing at spawn: 1) There is no *fear* that one of your friends will suddenly turn into a zombie 2) Humans can run in large groups with impunity to the cheapest spots of the map at the start of each round. There is no fear of one of them turning into a zombie (if that happens, the zombie is instantly whisked back to spawn, anyway). 3) Cheap human camping spots become even cheaper as they are guarenteed to be zombie free at the start of every round 3) Zombies have a *HUGE* disadvantage in any escape maps. In fact, this concept kills the concept of the escape map all together. I don't feel like flogging a dead horse, you guys can see my point of view now. What do you guys think?
