yes it was good on one the other night, but i did notice when salerno came on the server just went dead i think a lot of peeps don't like this map perhaps it needs changing for another. :D :D

DoD#1 will be going through different map rotations at intervals. This will hopefully allow everybody to play on their favorite maps, maybe try out some you haven't seen before and keep the server fresh.

Unfortunatley personal opinions on maps make it very hard to choose the correct cycle for everyone. Personally i'm not a great Churchyard lover, but i think i'm in the minority :wink:

Feedback is always welcome; it helps us to better evaluate the likes and dislikes of our friends and members :)

i think the map rotation thing is a good idea always like new maps puts everybody on a level playing field as nobody knows the maps like the back of their hands. (but only for a day or so) :lol:

i havent been with ukcs long but have found it to be the friendlyist server i've played on. :D

<3 UKCS :wink:

Guys, you must make use of DoD#1 not just cluster on #2 and complain about it being 1 map only.

We will be closing the 2nd DoD server shortly if you don't want it.

I know this will prob sound daft, but why not stick donner on the rotation

Maybe that way people may stay on the server once the 30 mins of donner is finished...

I can't remmber the amount of time, I've seen someone asking when the Donner round will finish on #2, I often see people moaning about it and leaving...

If eveyone loves Donner so much give them some more of it..

I often try and get #1 going, but it's really hard to get people to join, we had 4 people for about 15mins last night between 5 - 6 pm

getting killed all the time is no fun for some people maybe ease off a bit to let new players learn the map and get a few kills maybe they will start to enjoy themselves and bring others. i myself don't mind getting killed all the time it just makes me wont to get better at the game but for most getting killed all the time = disconnect an try other servers.

(in no way am i getting at anyone plz dont take offence of above statement)

I love server 1, its just so frustrating to get filled, me and jack where on the other afternoon (thrusday?) spent around 15-20 mins no one came one, jack suggested we try to get donner filled as it was also empty, within 10min 2 people came on and they just came comeing in.

#1 is just very hard to get filled when you don't already have a team (of say 6+) already on the server.

Come on everyone, It IS possible to get the server up and running, as Scoutmaster and I have proven today. It may be tedious and possibly get boring, but DO NOT give up.

Scout asked me today, shall we call it a day. Two minutes after that, we were getting a steady stream of people joining. If we had left, no doubtebly would it still be empty now.

Had nearly 20 players on, decreased to 5 when churchyard got on. Clearly the UKCS player base (apart from regs) has changed COMPLETELY, as before almost everyone LOVED Churchyard. :?

I hate to say this about the hallowed map known as chuchyard, but... we may have to remove customs if it keeps killing the server >_<

this may sound totally insane but how about changing the rotation on donner? so it has many dif maps like dod1?

donner's the popular server, why risk changing it to something that might not work? we need to focus on getting #1 popular. maybe regularely having a commercial'ish thing saying "add to your favorites and come back tomorrow"... maybe?

It's really only the people bothering to start it up that populates the server, not the map

I realise a couple of people saying it wont change it but I'll add my 2 cent anyway :P , I think salerno is the killer of server one or at least a big problem for it, I think a rethink is needed for the server, the player base is big enough to fill both, it's just to be able to draw a happy medium for all so they dont server hop.

It really baffles me why people dont stick to UKCS, hand on heart, it's one of if not the best server/s out there :? <3
