Vote pop ups during play

Postby SLAINE on Wed Jan 16, 2013 10:16 pm

This is starting to drive me crazy, and I am sure not the only one......

Is there no way the voting system can be changed to prevent, during play on TF2, not being able to select weapons etc because you are being asked what you think of the map and what map you would like next?

It's a silly system and could easily be altered.

You can also alter your own habits to use the mousewheel to change weapons rather than the number keys.

Bin, you should know by now after god knows how many people asking about this, that it's not terribly easy to switch from num keys to mouse-wheel, especially on classes with lots of weapon slots (Engie, Spy), or weapon switch precision in general.

I've only ever really used the mousewheel for weapon switching and as I've said many times, I don't find a problem with it. Just because some people don't find it easy doesn't mean that I'm going to stop pointing out that it solves the problem.

This does not turn off the voted map popping up nor the 'what do you think of this map' vote, even though it's the same maps time and again. I can only tell you how shit Goldrush is so many times. Nobody but nobody likes their game interupted like this and loads of people moan about it. Are you even using that data and if so what for, you did not deliver on your promise of 'something new' coming to server 8 at Christmas.

You'll notice i've set it that the map choices start at "2", and this is because I changed it so "1" is always close on any popup. It used to be "0". The reason its "1" is so its very easy to close quickly as its by your fingers were as "0" would mean 'letting go' to reach it. The map vote always happens 2 minutes before the end of round.

On CSS, a round based game, we are able to make the popup occur at the start of a round, between buy and fight. There isn't the same opportunity on TF2 and one of the unique features on UKCS is the live results which players like. If the votes were split to individual timing, that would cease to work.

You can turn the votes off on UKCS servers by saying 'settings' and choosing the right option. There are a number of other customisations you can make to your experience under settings too.
