Early nuke on atix helicopter

    This isn't aimed at any particular admin(s), although some of them are usually in on it.... which is why I'm posting it here. Fine, it's kinda funny the first time when half the server goes WTF. But it seems that once isn't enough, and then shithead players keep trying to do it too, then every round either ends early or the same admins change their minds and start kicking players for trying. Some of us players have resorted to running for that corner if we get turned first and knifing the humans trying to glitch the map, then we get yelled at for being assholes.

    This childish shit needs to stop entirely. It's the main reason we don't have any other escape maps in rotation... someone or some exploit always ruins the map for everyone else. Make it illegal just like the old glitch spots in the same map that allowed zombies to survive the nuke and made everyone else wait out the timer. This isn't going to stop players from continuing to try it when there's no admin on, but for fuck's sake, admins should not be encouraging it by doing it themselves and saying shit like "well, it's not specifically prohibited." Common sense should tell you: it's a map glitch.

    As I don't think Thor knows exactly who started it or what happened, here is a general idea of what went on.

    It's kind of my fault depending on how you look at it. I was being shown something by another player on the server, some other people saw what happened and put 2+2 together and repeated it. When I did it, I didn't immediately know what they were getting me to do would result in an early nuke when I did it cause I'd never experienced it before, but the FIRST time was my fault inadvertently. I'm sorry to you Thorazine that it got out of control. I personally never had any intention of that happening. Plaguefest I've noticed does get a little crazy on occasion. But I figured I was gonna wait for the humans to get off the heli in the hideyhole and gank them in the dark. I didn't know that it triggered the nuke when you went down there. Anywho, tl;dr. It was my mistake and lack of knowledge. If I personally see it happening, I'll make sure to be on top of it.

    I know this will probably reflect poorly on me personally being new, but I'd rather things be cleared up and just be done with it.



    I don't know who was saying: "well, it's not specifically prohibited." but I didn't personally hear that. If it was an admin, I didn't recognize it at the time.

    Second EDIT:

    I know my wording is weird at points. Shhhhshhh I'm tired. If you need me to clarify something, I can tomorrow when it's not 2am.

    Its a shitty map just delete it. Why do we even have this escape map with the regular maps? No one has ever answered me why its in the map rotation.

    I like it personally. You're right, it's a crappy map. But it's a nice reprieve once in a while to go there and just break from the 'norm' (if there is such a thing) of the pF server. That's my opinion on the map itself. That, and I like astounding nubs with the ol' 1000 kill trick. :razz:

    I've done this all of once or twice a map and have never done it back to back so it's annoying players. A lot of pple laugh and I don't encourage or even tell anyone else how it's done. I did just talk to Bluescreen today about stopping it after the most recent round of this map had it happen several times. I apologize for any inconvience this has caused, it was all for the lulz. The early nuke is like surprise butt sex, unexpected and funny the first time. From now on this tactic will be heavily discouraged by me and hopefully all other admins. Surprise I apologize that you didn't know what would happen. Also on a side note this shouldn't really be in this section in my opinion as it has nothing to do with actual admin power abuse.

    I love the map personally. And I've never had a problem with admins doing this while I am on. Guess I'll have to keep a closer eye.

    i hate this map and basically sit out on it most of the time. and yeah i've been up there early but usually sit at the side and rape the "survivors". lol

    Zombie cannon the humans on the map is about the only fun thing about that map. I prefer to hit human platforms to hear the rage though, lmao...

    This map is nice to have, it's not the best map, but it is a magnet to players

    I sometimes play really early (compared to US time) and around that time no one is on, but when i change it to Atix, there are around 10+ players.

    I was on when it happened and yeah, it was really fucking annoying. I don't know who was doing, I saw some guy named hurricane was doing it but I didn't see who he shot up.
    I've helped people up there before, but rarely would I or those people set it off, we'd rofl-rape the helicopter, kind of like what coolbeans did. But, I think we should make it illegal due to the fact it is technically glitching it since the nuke didn't set off the right way.

    I'm thinkin you guys could just Edit in a *NO EARLY NUKE ON ATIX into the rules. then start kickin for it.

    glad this finally came up. its annoying as hell when you are waiting for the heli and you get nuked. i really like that map. i hope it doesnt leave. like others have said it attracts people.

    Was wondering when you would come in and preach about your love map.

    "Nerfed" the knife damage due to abuse, you know who you are.

    I don't think you've ever asked, we had escape maps on before, until that was all that was played than we removed most of them. I feel like setting up two separate configurations for the server, however people complain about change (in general, I'm not necessarily talking about yourself Obama) which has been my main motivation against doing this. If the general attitude changed towards a more positive outlook, more escape maps more would be added. However it has not in the past year or so, so we're just leaving what was on there which happened to be Atix Helicopter.
    There's no need to out someone just because they like a map, I'm sure I could find a couple maps which you like and I hate and do the same.

    kyle "people complain about change (in general, I'm not necessarily talking about yourself Obama)" am i the only one who saw the irony in what he said with change and obama? lmao

    I did but I didn't find it as funny. I'm still hatting on Republicans to a point where I would rather have a president who can't fill his shoes then a Republican who acts like they can do more.

    Think it would be better to just reopen ZE instead of just making a config switch, When and IF we ever decide to. ZE is much better then riot and customs, would take a bit to populate but they are fun and can hold numbers.

    Not outting anyone, it's a joke and meant to be just that "a joke." I do personally like the map as annoying as it can be at times which is why I responded in sarcasm.

    I got two of those maps removed...only one more til the final solution comes to fruition. Seriously I'm just adding my input and that's that I hate escape maps. For unlimited ammo atix is probably the worst. The easiest spot to defend is the first helicopter access point so there is little strategy in comparison to other maps. Obviously maps like towers dont require a lot of strategy but there are some other options there in terms of how you can survive. With that said it does bring players in. That is the only good thing I'll say about atix.

    I would personally love to see the escape server come back. It seemed to always be packed. While it did draw players from the regular server there stil seemed to be a good number of players there. So why not have 1.5 full servers instead of just 1 full server? It seems like we have the admin base to facilitate both servers. Obviously I dont know the intricate details of getting the escape server up and running but if possible I think it should be done.
