    The Current state of the servers


    I don't normally post on here, but if I'm posting here i guess it means things are getting pretty bad.

    Right now the server only fills up at around 8-9 PM for a few hours then empties out. This is usually done by someone entering in and sending out mass invites on their friends list to try and fill it up.

    This used to be done by Enforcer daily, but it's gotten to the point where it's harder and harder to do this, and even someone as dedicated as Enforcer has been playing on other servers.

    I know we had ideas and discussions in the past on how to help fix this and get the servers back to how it was. When even Valve 2 was constantly nearly full, and the goldrush server was full as well.

    I know DF's most likely busy working for Valve now, so i think the best way to go about this is if possible, giving access to an trusted admin, who would be able to make changes that the community would like to see.

    I've had multiple regulars who have been playing on other servers tell me if things such as additional custom maps where added, they would come back. The other issue i think is the reserved slots. If we were able to make some changes and got things going where new people would visit, it would be fustrating to them being kicked constantly by someone with a reserved slot who payed for it 2+ years ago and hasn't made a payment since then. Something i'm guilty of as well.

    I think it would be best to limit the reserved slots to either a lower number, and/or start removing them and actually enforcing a small monthly payment of $2-5 for a slot and added goodies like other servers due. Maybe a shiny gun like the scatter gun i have.

    Some other threads have some ideas that also work and show these changes have been wanted for a while:

    http://forums.sourceop.com/threads/1...is-server-EVER

    http://forums.sourceop.com/threads/1...ff-the-servers

    To get this going, we need to show support here first. The community still exists and we need to show it, and show it wants to keep going. Everyone please post below saying something like, "I agree, and want to see these changes as well" and leave feedback on other ideas you would like to see. Please reach out to your friends, give them this link and have them post as well if they play on the server, or any of the other SourceOP servers.

    My suggestion is to change the map rotation to this:

    Ctf_turbine
    ctf_turbine
    ctf_turbine
    junction
    ctf_turbine
    ctf_turbine
    cs_militia

    during the hours of 12pm to 16am

    Second this. I am a victim of Server Death, first it was the 24/7 2fort no mods, now the rotation server. We really need to get some new maps or something. If not custom maps, then some of the new ones, like Kong King. I don't post here either, but something does need to be done. Maybe take off a couple of the really terrible maps, I am not talking about bad maps, but maps where everyone already knows who is going to play what class and run kritz. That is probably one of the biggest problems with the rotation server. anyways, my 2 Deo

    It's simple we kill the batman!

    But serious the map rotations are really bad, way to many maps. I haven't played in valve maps #1 #2 in awhile myself maybe because every time I log on the servers are always empty. IE: why this thread was made. I hope the servers can make a comeback soon.

    A regs opinion


    I'm a Regular on PH, and we really need the new maps added. We've been waiting for a really long time, and it would mean the world to us we could have the new maps. We've also been having a problem with maps constantly being skipped, therefore I believe that map voting should be removed entirely. It's one of my favorite servers, and I enjoy the community on it, and we're just ready for a little variation.

    Thank you so very much in advance.

    First off, from what I see here, new maps/and or rotations would be a proper way to start. Then continue on from this point. Well I am noticing a definite lack of players on the 24/7 2fort [NO MODS] [NO BS], [VALVE MAPS #2] [NO MODS], 24/7 Goldrush [NO MODS], and Pro Rotation [NO CRITS] just as Game316 explained. On my home server (SOP Prop Hunt), was recently renovated intensely though in a positive way for the entire community as a whole. The server received new maps, new map rotation, and took away anything that needed to go. This has made the SourceOp prop hunt community (in my opinion) a lot better. More people are interested, prop hunt players from other servers come to join SourceOp's, and of course any other new additions. Eventually, most SOP servers will undergo a positive change along the way. This of course will take time.

    Exclamation


    SOP Prop Hunt is my favorite server atm in TF2, and aiming to make it better would be pleasing
    I agree with everything Makar and Bacon said
