Reduce recently played wait time for new maps.

Discussion in Server Suggestions & Bugs started by FreshEggs, Aug 20, 2015

Is having to wait through 10 maps before being able to play the same map again too long?

Yes, it should be reduced. 6 vote(s) 33.3%
No, the length protects us from overplaying maps. 7 vote(s) 38.9%
I lost my virginity to my dog. 5 vote(s) 27.8%

    Having to wait 10 maps before you can play the same map again is overdone in my opinion. Because the RTV system is a joke and it takes nearly 95% of people on server to successfully RTV a map, I think its safe to say that it takes 25 minutes to play a map. So 25 minutes x10 map rotations = 250 minutes which is roughly 4 hours. That means the max a map can be played in one day is 4x. If lila_panic or firewall are the servers bread and butter, great! Lets see more of it and keep the server more populated. Server population is more important to me than the opinions of people who think maps are overplayed. I was thinking 5 map rotations would be fair.

    What you guys think about this?

    We play the same maps over and over as it is. Reducing the time between maps is going to make that even worse

      I also think that the first option of the map vote should be a random map.

        I agree with Seeker, we're playing the same maps over and over quite enough already. While I too personally believe most of the panic maps are awesome (beach excluded) they're getting played every single given moment, leaving other potentially good maps out of the "meta". If people would give other maps an honest try instead of "everybody R.T.V this map sucks" right when the map changes, perhaps we'd have more than just panic, officespace along with a few more maps to play around with.

          More firewall plz.

          I'm 50/50 on this. On one hand, it gets boring that we play the same maps over and over again (I'm even starting to get bored of firewall and unpanic, sorry @Kronus) . On the other hand, we play the same maps over and over again because they either attract players or are just more fun to play.

            I say you have a random number 1 nomination then reduce it to 8 maps that way you get some variety from 1 spammers and people can still play the common maps

              Doesn't matter how many maps are added if no one votes for them over the maps that get played all the damn time.

                Could have the inverse, highly-played maps need 15+ to be selected again while new maps only need ~5

                As much as I hate 4way, it is a very popular map. Removing popular maps isn't a good idea.

                Any suggestions to remove zombie sided maps should be ignored. Some people don't like waiting for humans to win every single round 5-0 on the same map all damn day.

                And if you want to play the same map, over and over and over again, then I'm afraid you are endangering the server. This was a problem on ZE and had some impact on the death of it (Mako anyone?). This makes those popular maps, the boring maps, and people get bored quicker. I think the system in place now helps keep maps from being overplayed and leading to them being boring. Suggest new maps, maybe remove bad ones, but don't overplay the good ones...

                Overplaying maps was definitely a Bad Thing. New maps need to be promoted over "classic" maps so that they're more visible than the usual ones.
