    We have ran into an issue lately about playing Minas on ZE. It started with the collision hook that we are using to prevent humans from stacking. This also comes with the side effect of zombies being able to stack into one spot without blocking their knife attacks, this allowed zombies to instantly break cades and doors on Minas making it nearly impossible to enjoy the map.

    We have decided to stop playing Minas during high population times since the above issue may of caused players to quit out of frustration. We are going to be trying to play it during low pop times to get the server full and test disabling the hook, unfortunately we are not sure how the server will react when it is manually disabled. The first test was today and it seemed to work without any issues. Hopefully this trend continues and we will be able to play it more often.

    Thanks.

      I am now thankful that Predator cleared out the server. Had a lot of fun playing Minas. Thanks!

        I think we need to get rid of the old boring maps that makes people want to leave and put new maps that people would like to stay for.

        Can you expand on this? Does the ZE server rotation need to be cleaned like ZM was?

          (Sarcasm) Only 5 maps get played on ZE. I doubt it needs to be cleaned. ZM was where all the trouble was and now it's like a breath of fresh air.

          Yea I think it needs to be cleaned, like take out the old maps people wouldn't like to play or join cause that would usually make everyone leave from what I know of. Put maps that people would enjoy and wont want to leave or want to keep extending. I don't know what good new maps are there atm for ze but if anyone know of any I hope they let us know about it so our sever can have that map of part of the rotation.

            If people don't like some maps, there's a simple solution: don't nominate them and don't vote for them. Personally I don't see any sense in removing maps. But if these maps are being played then some people actually vote for them and want to play them. If these maps are being picked by 1-spam, then this is people's problem.
            Also sometimes it's interesting to play some old map, to remember great old times...
            Just saying my opinion.

              I suppose its for the best tbh, even though it is fun with a big population, but dropping when its played to lower population to resolve the issues is good.

              personally maybe it's time for PF to step up the game

              relying on zombies being delayed for too long because of stacking on cades is kinda anti-climactic.

              I'd be happy if PF managed to beat LOTR without the help of zombies being held off for too long just by cades.

                  But the maps that get played are maps that we nominate and vote on, the server has well over 30 maps to choose from, I think that if we see better maps come out and we have no room then yes remove the least played, but dont remove them for the sake of removing old maps.
