Remove Donner from DOD1 Server ?

Postby Syntax Error on Sun Feb 15, 2009 9:07 am

Some people asked if it was an idea to remove the Donner map out of the map-cycle from the DOD1 server. After all, the other server has 24/7 donner running anyways...
What do you think :roll: :?:

I'm not a DoD:S admin, so don't take this as gospel.

Having Donner in the cycle helps boost the number of people in the server due to it's popularity, and additionally for 20 minutes it's a good fast paced map. I say keep it. :)

I dont play it either but it will get people on and they may stay for the maps afterwards, if it's half full and donner comes on, fills up, map change, you may only use a few :D
TC- you sir, are one pain in the ass!
Imp- you've been offline for a while and you dont have a life. i am confused.
Kan- War is annoying to play against I will agree, but he isn't cheating.

Yes with debated this before but i believe as it stands DONNER will stay for now as people do vote for it and play it plus only for 30 mins.
Wait to see what Iceman thinks as hes been keeping keen eye on server one after IP change but maps seem fine at the moment in my opinion , see how this threads goes but the players joining server one are new players and wont be able to cast a vote as many arent in the forums !

As the Good XerXes said does attract a good number of players time to time we just trying to establish which maps work best but seems bit random atm!

Dod:s cannot run 64 man servers unfortunately, would be interesting if they could though :D

Hehe a nadetastic MG adventure :twisted:

But on topic: As said above Donner is suberb for filling the server, and then most will stay for the other maps too. Plays differently than the 24/7Donner too.

When 64 was around, DODS failed. Especially if one teams pushing for the final cap!
