    1.Voting for new maps EVEN when all other players want to continue playing the map

    2. Slapping/ killing someone because theyre last person standing.
    Please note: zombies can get to there spot

    I've seen both of these happen quite a lot.

    Wrong section.

    Voting for new maps only happen if the other admins and the majority of the players in the server agree with changing the map.

    Slapping/Killing somone because they're the last one standing; i don't see occurring often. I believe people do that because they won and they want the round to end faster. I am not fully sure. If you see anybody this, you will have to contact the higher admins, and tell them the admin's name and steam id. This is the only way I can say this.

    As icee said above ^^^

    I'll admit I've slapped someone (or lots of someones) on MG especially because sometimes you get on impossible parts of maps. Like that surf minigame on randomizer or some shit and noone can complete it for 5 minutes and everyone just sits around and complains. I have taken votes and just slapped everyone for 100 damage to end the round so people can pick something different. It really depends on the case.

    MG is way different than ZM though butt. Mexican seems to be speaking specifically about the ZM servers, and the entire point of ZM is to let the rounds END so humans can win. If an admin is killing humans just cause a couple are left, then that's entirely the wrong thing to do. The end of rounds are usually the best as all the zombies try to work together to get the last few humans before the time runs out. So as ice said, if anyone IS doing this, get their name/steamID and let a higher up know.

    herpderp my bad. Missed that he said it was for ZM. Don't know how. As that's the case, I agree. :razz: Take a demo if you can.

    ive never seen admins kill the last humans using admin powers, if i did i would probably be the first to complain.

    Mexican advised me that he plays primarily on ZE so I was assuming he meant the escape server. Unfortunately I have also witnessed some admins purposely killing off humans to keep the game moving. I personally have disagreed with some of the actions but I am not a ZE map expert and deferred it to others who supposedly are knowledgeable.

    Uhhh. I think it depends on if the human is actually trying to do the end. If it isn't and they're just being a dick go for it.

    Trying to survive from like 20-30+ zombies when ur the last guy is being a dick?

    You need to re-read what I said.
  12. Feb 12, 2011
    My personal view on this is just, if theres no way the remaining humans can possibly win, it's an okay descision.
    Long lasting rounds, with no point, result in people leaving from my experience.

    Ps. To whoever thought it was ZM, it obviously is not.

    I only do it when the round is lost for sure, I'm a veteran ZE player, and I'm fully known with delaying causing the server to die out.
    At the worst cases, over half can leave because 1 person is being a dick and going in a spot zombies have trouble getting in.

    1. If everyone wants to continue playing then the admin shouldn't change the map. How do I tell if people want to keep playing the map? I do a regular vote first. Change map (Requires 90%)? No Yes. If I get the 90% then I do a map vote after I ask people what map they want.

    2. Zombie Escape is exactly what it says. To escape. Not to fight off zombies for 4 mins or whatever. If it's a no win situation, then yes, keep the game moving. Want to camp and kill zombies? Go to Lil panic server :grin:

    If the players want a new map, they can just RTV it. Admins don't need to be throwing out random votes all the time, especially if it's a vote that has no meaning.

    As for slapping or slaying the last survivor(s), it doesn't matter what server it is, that shouldn't happen unless in a very few extreme situations. On the ZE server for example, if the last person is just holding a vent or some other narrow spot, and making no attempt to move further, then by all means kill them. But before you kill them, make absolutely sure that they are not making any forward progress. They could just be trying to find the right moment to make a run for it, but not able to because of the zombies nearby. I know I'd be extremely pissed off if I was a player and was just about to make a run for it when out of nowhere a random admin slays me.
  18. Feb 12, 2011
    I don't see any situation why 1 player would make a run for it when he's alone.

    i've been twice on the server where u decided to build a vote after the map vote near the end of the map time has been decided just coz u dont like the next map..
    *psssssssst* that pisses off the ppl who voted for the map that won the vote :wink:
  20. Feb 12, 2011
    Yeah, because I hear people saying "Omg, not that map again" etc, so I decide to make a vote, not because I don't like it.
