Hepcat Pillbox is back and here to stay

Post by cosmos »

Greetings,

The one and only original pillbox server is back online after a 3 year hiatus! We are 85% back online but will need to sort out some plugins and logging code so there may be some short outages.

Looking forward to seeing all the old regulars and all new players out there.

current server address is: borrego.hepcat.org:5154 and you can chat with us on irc.freenet.org in ##hepcat
:D

Yeah, I say the full rotation is the way to go. Something like 7 hours, so the time of day that each map operates slowly changes.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

that is a possibility, although i may not have all the maps/configs for that right away. the rotation we used back in 2005 was 4 hours per map.

I love watching noobs on pillbox thinking they can just jump and avoid the shot, then they find out that they can't jump.
