    Your thread title sucks fat wang and why didn't you post this in the already active thread that's discussing the exact topic you're talking about? ಠ_ಠ

    Have you even played a reload server? The zombies are nowhere near as powerful as they are on an unlimited ammo server. The reason they are so strong now is to make up for the fact that CTs get the unlimited ammo.

    If we do host a reload server, the zombies will be balanced so that their health and/or speed is significantly reduced. I don't remember if it was the very early days of PlagueFest, or if it was a different server, but when it was reload and not unlimited it was still relatively easy to win as a CT if you used common sense. Yes, you couldn't just camp somewhere and spray the doorway the entire round without needing to think. But that was part of the fun of it, making the players actually have to try to survive. It's unfortunate but I feel like all the regular players on unlimited ammo servers are too used to how easy things when you can just put '+attack' in console and walk away. When it comes to reload servers, you need to work together with people around you to survive.

    Personally, I would love to see PlagueFest host a reload server, since I know it would have a great admin staff as well as spectacular management working to make sure everything ran smoothly.

    I agree with Reaper, his points are all excellent. It makes it so you need to actually work to survive, instead of camping with 10 others in a room and continously spraying the door as Reaper has previously said.

    you can camp with 10 people on reload, you just have to know how to conserve ammo and not be a complete shitty

    Yea, guess that is true. But knowing all the noobs that follow everyone into camping spots will just shoot all their clip off and screw the whole squad over that is in the room with them.

    meh, most fun i have on reload is hunting zombies =)
  11. Jan 30, 2011
    Heh yep, hunting zombies is a lot of fun on reload, hit em with a napalm grenade and everybody just pounds on him/them. I remember playing on another zombie reload server, zG or something like that. Was a really big hit. There was also a map, I can't really remember what it was called, there were multiple little courtyard things, some boxes you could camp uptop on, and could jump into a tree from them. There was also a square fenced in area you could make into a cade, majority of it was camping areas though. Was alot of fun!

    personally i think i reload server would be a great expansion for PF.. possibly more donations.. it could open many opportunities

    i think your talking about zm_cbble or zm_nza_cbble
  14. Jan 30, 2011
    Ah yea, that is it. zm_cbble. That was a fantastic, simple map. Also had a version that had a wine cellar area, would be awesome to have that map on the reload server if it is chosen.

    Here's the trend for PF on servers.

    Introduce new game mode that has nothing to do with zombies, Server is populated for a days (weeks if lucky) and then just falls flat within the next month and slowly declines.

    Same goes for using the same map 24/7. Users find best spots, users camp, larger amounts of users flock to the "best spots" and everyone will know where people usually camp, and get bored VERY easily. After repitition of the same map, the other servers are repopulated once again. Will impact panic map from the actual server itself where people will start quitting and play another server.

    Zombie reload adds a little realism (not that a zombie taking 5000 bullets to die is realistic) but would be nice to see a drop in HP for zombies when a reload map is launched so that odds aren't tipped so heavily against survivors.
  16. Jan 30, 2011
    Yes. I think the next best thing other then a zm reload server would maybe be zriot, since the zombie hp only takes about 1-2 headshots and since it is reload it would be realistic. I seem to favour realism over anything else. :3

    We did zriot recently (september/october I believe) and it flopped horrendously. I usually like new servers, but even that one was where I could actually go to make binds and/or train new admins because noone was ever in them. XD

    Poor Hide and Seek server, I saw it was born and now its almost always empty.
