Then make it over the weekend :D?
Love to know how it works outside of Competitive TF2. Could imagine it working pretty well, although, Since I got work that night and stuff, I probably will never know unless you extend it for a day or two *winks* :P

But seriously, Fair do on doing this. Nice to know that UKCS are willing to do random events just to see how they pan out (like vTF2 and Granary/Turbine only tests :P). Is there a plan to make some servers no crit/spread if this pans out well? Or is it just a random throw out to make some people happy :D

The scope of this is to have it as a night's event- depending on how it goes we may extend it to the rest of the weekend, or maybe even consider moving the settings onto one of the servers. For the moment though, this is just a single night event. :)

I don't like 32 player either. I mean why would I want to trade FPS for more spam? I'll still play though, hopefully when the server is a bit emptier.

gah, people always find something to complain...

Why not enjoy this first and then, if you like it, suggest possibly another try on 26p settings. It's alot more positive than just start complaining straight away, when something is not 100% to your liking. Remember Xerxes puts many, many hours of his own free time into making this happen for you...

I think it's a great idea Xerxes. Alot of people has asked for it in the past, so lets see how it turns out. I hope I can make it.

I'm just going to start locking threads regarding events if no one can find something constructive to add to the conversation. As Wombat says, we [the TF2 team] put in hours and hours of work each week to keep things running on UKCS and the constant thoughtless unconstructive criticisms are just reaching a point we shouldn't have to to tolerate it.

Postby Kerch on Sun Jun 12, 2011 9:27 pm

It was constructive. I suggested a change (less than 32 players) and gave a reason (poor FPS performance and lowered quality of gameplay). I pay for my slot, so... I will give my opinion even if it's negative. I thought the whole point of removing crits is to reduce the randomness and place a greater emphasis on fairness and skill, which is not helped by this modified 32 player setting. As I said, I will still play and try to judge the change fairly.

Dont try and twist this.

If you were going to suggest less than 32 players you would have done exactly that, not put a sarcastic comment like I don't like 32 player either. I mean why would I want to trade FPS for more spam?.

Thanks for sponsoring UKCS, constructive criticism is always welcome, but you have to expect that not all events will be exactly the way you want them. Otherwise we would be called Uniquely Kerch's Community Servers.

O/T: I dont think I can make this, are there plans to run the event again in the future?

You pay for a slot to support the community and get in the servers when they're full. Being a sponsor does NOT give you any other special privileges.

This entire event is due to players requesting it. The purpose of it is not to reduce spam on the server, be kind to your FPS or promote fairness in play. The purpose behind it is you wanted it and now we're giving it to you. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

Awesome. Looking forward to trying this and nospread should be fun. Especially for scouting. A little worried about the 32 player load (I find it harder to play scout then!) but I've seen it go up to 32 in Pope's prize events and it worked out ok. So overall this should be fun.

Seriously though, great idea for an event :)

Does this affect items that give you crits, like the Kritzkrieg or Buff Banner?

Also, like the new announcement graphic style :)

No, it shouldn't do. No crit should just remove random crits from the game. Items/buffs that give minicrits or full crits will still work as normal.

Yet another TF2 thing I've heard talked about but never experienced, unless I have without realising it

It will be interesting to see the difference :D I'll probably suck even more than usual!
