DoD#1 - Will be closing if you don't want it

Forum discussion on Day of Defeat game

Postby Primal ShadoW on Sun Apr 29, 2007 10:10 am

commercialise it then ;)

but what dread mentioned earlier is true. if a new player gets shot time after time without getting a single kill, hes very likely to leave the server and quit the game/find a different (easier) server to play at. we cant do much about that though, but since ukcs is such a frindly server, that might be a factor that makes ppl stay.

also, salerno is imo a good map, so again it's a matter of personal opinion whether or not to remove a map. if we were to remove one, at least make a vote, democracy ftw :)

one way to get #1 started is to invite everyone on your friends list, even if it's ppl you don't know, ppl youve had pcw's against etc etc, someone is almost bound to join. a little challenge for us guys, lets keep this server running ;)

A reminder of the history...

We had DoD#1 as a mix of custom & valve, and was pretty much full all of the time.

We introduced DoD#2, same maps, but with FF on always as the twist

Nobody played on DoD#2, tried various things, nothing

Changed it to Kalt Only when that map came out, was very popular for a few weeks. (At this time DoD#1 still most popular)

Tried Avalanche, played for a bit and died out

Tried Donner, nobody played on it for about 3 months

Big push on forums to get people to use it and the result was everyone stopped played on the Valve/Custom DoD#1 and ONLY played donner, rather than splitting across both.

Now here we are with people still on Donner and mostly reluctant to start up DoD#1, preferring to play on other server's that already have players on them rather than building up our one with the attitude "I'll come on it once its filled up". Also known as "I'll make it somebody else's problem". Unfortunately, thats the most unhelpful and self defeating approach that can be had.

I think the players who have been helping DoD#1 get populated are the salt of the earth - top UKCS members. Good work Guys :D You're creating a server you have say over and can build up how you like.

and thats whats happening now. BIG push on the forums to start populating #1. hopefully, donner will still be as popular. keep this going for a few weeks, and im sure we'll see #1 easily filling up.

Volkan and Yik if you want to fight then take it onto DoD#1 :P


I will make an effort and I know 12-15 others that'll do the same but we need more, so regs it's time to we started to make it work again, if your first on then your first on, it wont be long unti other regs join :wink:


This is just a thought...TC, is it possible to give vip slots for the following month to X amount of players that have been on the server 1 the most as it shows they are making the effort and should be rewarded for it, it's not so much a bribe but more an asentive, as I say, it's just a thought.

The problem with wanting to offer VIP for those that help is its hard to determine who should be given it other than people putting up their hands which will raise disputes. Theres about 200 people who have played on and off on DoD#1 and VIP is no use if everyone has it. DoD#1 also isn't gettng full at the moment so VIP isn't needed, and to give VIP to DoD#2 kind of defeats the point.

The reward for getting the 2nd server alive and healthy with a growing player base should be the satisfaction of having 2 great servers to play on with your mates, and the ability to help refine it via these forums where you are known - not some server you just play on as an outsider.

If you went by longest time on DoD#1 (only) for the month, need to be registered on forum and vip only applies to DoD#1 for following month that might get ones to stay on #1 and not change as you they never know, next month could be busy and that's when they will reap the reward.
