    Just want to get a general idea of what people want... There seems to be a lot of mixed opinions about this.

    I've never played JailBreak so I cant say either way.

    I guess I'll have to go play in some server somwhere =/

    It seems fun from what Ive played so far, but so much freekilling by little kids is annoying. The servers I played on had no admins on to enforce so it was a big draw back.

    But it was fun when it was played correctly.

    JB is a drama whore admin nightmare. I will stay away.

    I won't deny that a JailBreak server will possibly bring in more players, but there are downsides to it as well. From what I've seen on the servers I've tried for it, it's a nightmare for admins to effectively enforce rules on without chasing too many players away. Lets not even mention what it gets like when there are no admins on at all.

    Personally, I'm against having a server for it. Professionally, I'm staying neutral on it.

    Let's try it and see where it goes.

    we need custom scripts such as !votefk or !votederpct

    Never played it. I'm always open to try new things, but I want to actually get to try them instead of dealing with player complaints regarding a freekiller ever 2 seconds. :teehee:

    Played it before a few months. It's a nightmare for admins. Admins can't play because they need to watch out for freekillers. It needs a lot of MANPOWER. However, it does generate income .

    ^this x2

    Kind of my thinking... til it's all 12 yo kids like HG had a problem with for the longest time and not NEARLY enough admins to cover it and all their other servers. I played it for like a week before I got sick of people being stupid.

    Basically my thoughts put into a few sentences. minus the income part. People that are buying admin off this usually are said 12 yo kids who dont really have the money to do it but for a month or 2 and are using mommy's credit card til she finds out about the charges.

    I think we need a jail break and a lil panic sever. If they don't work eliminate them. Simple as that. Jailbreak should bring in more admins and I think the end users are looking for a reliable and stable server such as Plaguefest. My opinion of course. hehe

    isn't any server generally bad when there are no admins on? i go on zombie 2 and well theres many users in illegal spots and no admins on, people raging due to impossible kills and rinse wash and repeat. on minigames theres always those nubs who stall the game for 4 minutes every round when theres no admins on, on jailbreak, sure theres freekillers, but then theres tlist to make them permanently terroist until they learn the game, not to mention with !votefk (when used appropriately) can get rid of freekillers. (!votefk is not vote fuck but vote free kill :razz:) Giving the server a try is not a bad thing, people weren't all for minigames, and look at it now.

    I agree that Jailbreak will bring in more admins, I actually had a lot of fun when I played it.

    If there is a JB server up I might just have to do an admin purchase :turned:

    I only support jb for admin sales. I don't want to ever step foot in it if I can.

    True but not true. We tend to bring in the playerbase that always fucking cries and not only that, they don't listen or give two shits about what we say unless we're there to keep them in line.

    Also if we really are doing this, we absolutely need to set out a list of rules prior to the release of the server so we don't have admins and users making rules up on their own.
  20. Jul 14, 2010
    yes i agree, theres a shit ton doing this on minigames right now
