cosmos, has bought up an overlord server wich is proving very popular, dont give up hope yet zaphod. the oldies might return and the old close combat skill might become reimbersed (is that the right word), also thanks from everyone for bringing back the classic servers.

cheers, Zac :) :) :) :) :)

unfortunately the stats prove a very poor frequency of visiting the "goldies"!
but i guess ::: time has changed and i see a strong tendency going for a sniper-style using GM or L instead of the "close combat" that demands skills, dodging and patience to learn!
i guess i'll keep running the classics until the end of this month and replace it with one "rotating-server" going through all the maps in a circle of 1.5 hours.
anyway ::: thanks for your posts and making an idea happening!
Don't get too nostalgic. I strongly remember doing my fair share of laser camping on grassroots (under a different moniker).

well ::: the classic's series was not very “successful” and i thought that much more players would enjoy these great maps (like myself)!
Maybe it is related to the "camping&snipping" period which i have the impression is very "in vogue" right now?!
When it will be over and the more skillful playing comes back ::: i'm sure the maps will too!
Anyway after little activity on these maps ::: they are offline for now!
(well not really though ::: i set up a port with all 11 of them in a rotation cycle.)

    classics rotation ::: 11 CLASSICS ::: each one hour
If you want to store the classic's map files (with the options) for your "archive" ::: you can download them at www.zaphod.fr in the "maps offline" page!
And check out the blogging section ::: there is now a mini:series running ;-)
