What does the public Want?

Post by Sir Lance-A-Lot » Wed Nov 24, 2004 1:52 am

I have been experimenting a lot with my new server.
Changing maps, editing variables, changing server environment, gameplay, and so on. But, sadly it attracts few ppl. I need suggestions from yall. A server needs to be interesting, challenging, but still very enjoyable. There are pages of servers that dont get played on, mine on one of them. I believe I could make an awsome server, but I need the perfect combination. So, Im looking for the opinions of the ppl that luv adventure. Anything is accepted. I just needa know what to put on it wink:

well for variables i'd say not too crazy, like no SUPER fast shtos and no tank speed around even 60. unless you want a superspeed server but those usually are fun and a little popular for the first few days then they just die.

for maps, i'd say if your not a decent mapmaker start with someone elses (no offense and do ask them), for instance (sorry for those who i leave out in this short 'list') ducatiwannabe is a great mapmaker.
A map should be interesting, it should have hiding places, camping places (optional ;) ), and an interesting place for bases (if CTF) and mabye little challenges to get somewhere here and there.

as for lag, minimum lag ;) .

and (this may not be so important) a catchy name ;)

oh and another thing.. this is kinda cheap but put some bzadmin clients or bots in to raise it on the list, say 3 bzadmin clients or a lot of bots but then when people join take the bots out.
