Don't let Monty choose the maps for the new server.

I don't care but in my opinion, if you haven't any fun on tot or los you won't get it on a third server. Another point, what tasseladd said is understandable. A third server might spread the community to much and you get boring games like 5vs5. Such games for me aren't really fun not even on a fun-server. I like it full of opponents to get some goalhanger frags :D

Rather i want to see an additional seventh map on TOT. A map different from the standard pool, a map choosen monthly by the community via poll. It might will brings the forum more attractive, a nice variation in game and its not necessary to rent a new server. Really, i miss maps like caen 2, warbell, transmitter, venice or tc base. There are a bunch of nice maps out on LOS but still i don't like to play on it.

greets

I like your idea!

Well that’s a bit of a generic statement to make... I know players on Los who dislike Tot because of the no limit on skill levels and/or the standard maps. Subsequently I know players on Tot who dislike Los because of the limit on skill levels and/or competition maps. Then there are those who probably dislike both these combinations. The bigger picture with this suggestion is to give ETPro players more opportunity to choose. It might halt the decline a little.

We won’t know unless we give it time and wait for players outside of our community to become aware that there is an offer like this out there. We also don’t know how many would rather join a 3rd server than to wait endlessly in queue at Tot and/or Los.

I believe this was discussed before and some of the Tot players were against it. I’d prefer 3 different servers with 3 different map types: classic, competition, and fun.

I like some of the maps on Los too, but sadly the skill levels limit kills it for me.

Agree with Graffs, we should give it a chance.
It sounds nice.

(Of course, what is a “funmap” is all subjective. Funmaps to me are maps with the design and feel of Daybreak or North Pole. Maps we see on Hirnlos like Bremen, Braundorf, Supply Depot, SW Gold Rush TE, and so on are designed with competitive play in mind and as such are not classified as funmaps.)


I vote for these bolded maps, if this plan ever comes true.

1. The current 2 ETPro servers are in such demand that it’s not unusual to have to wait 30 minutes just to get in if you try to connect in the evenings. The demand seems higher than the capacity – and because most of the players who get stuck in this queue play on ETPro exclusively, it’s within the realms of possibility that they would consider a 3rd option.


I'd say et.hirntot.org is quite well available on daytime. But yeah, evenings it's usually crowded. As for me, I can still handle the long waits, but it might be different with guys who study or have a job.

2. ETPro attracts the best players. It just isn’t the same to play a funmap on a typical NQ/Jaymod server where everyone has 10K in XP and goof around. To get a serious, objective-oriented game on a funmap you have to put it on ETPro. This might be a niche market, but nevertheless it’s a market that deserves to be filled.


Yeah, I vote for raw ETpro platform. I have always enjoyed NQ too, but after all these years in different servers I have come to see that playing with those mods usually drop skill level so I have become stuck in et.hirntot.org and trying to push forward. :)

Quote:
3. Overall, the ET community is slowly dying. Quite a few servers that I used to visit are now all but dead. With fewer servers to choose from, the responsibility rises for those still alive to keep interest up. One of the ways you do so is by offering diversity and giving players the freedom to choose what kind of maps and skill level system they want to play on ETPro.


Promise to donate 10e to hirntot next year, if I somehow manage to get a job.
