I know I may have put this in the wrong as always, feel free to move it to the correct place.

Anyway, I have made up a short little survey I would like as many people as possible to respond to. I think this is will be kinda interesting to find out the results and what everyone likes and dislikes. So, please just respond with the answers below.

1. What type of game mode do you prefer?
a. FFA(Free for All) ab. Team Free For All(TFFA) ac. Open Free For All(OFFA) b. CTF(Capture the flag) c. Rabbit Hunt

2. What type of team-based games do you like?
a. FFA(only rogue) b. 2 Teams c. 3 Teams d. 4 Teams e. 5 Teams(includes rogue)

3. What type of maps do you like?
a. Open and very few objects b. cluttered, lots of places to go c. Hidden, many places to hide(usually radar is disabled) d. Camping and sniping, many places to camp or snipe e. other (please state what)

4. How many players do you prefer(in total)?
a. 5 or below b. 6-10 c. 11-18 d. 19-25 e. 26 or above

5. What types of flags do you like in a map?

a. Good flags only(Super-flags) b. Bad flags only c. Both Good flags and Bad flags e. No flags

Thanks for the responses!!

Note: I know many of you may probably say, well I don't care as long as the map is good. Well I realize that, but just tell me what you would prefer if you had to make a choice.

Here are my answers:

1: b
2: b

Nice survery, however, maybe you should add a few more questions.

For example: Jumping? Richochet? If superflags, what types? Shot Limits? OverallI I will be interested in what people say.

My answers:

1. a
2. b
3. Medium mixture of objects. Eye candy is nice
4. Depends on the map, size, and playability
5. e however this is also based on the map

1. Free for all. 2. Even number teams 3. cluttered's not the right word, maybe something nice like busy? 4. c and above is good, though fewer is still fun 5. no flags or both. The experience is more pure that way.

Jumping and no ricochet is what I like. Any mode is good for me. I prefer having all flags available for a nice variety, I also like it if there is the good ol' antidote flag. Having all teams available is always nice and I love exploring large clutter maps. I like a lot of players, around 11-26, too bad most maps are ignored. :tired:
Some day you will go on BzFlag and see that every server on the list has a least 20 players on it.

3. Medium mixture of objects. Eye candy is nice (courtesy of apple ^^)

jumping is a must. rico preferred but not a must, depending on the map. shot limits should be put only if absolutely necessary. the joy of finding your favorite super flag and the hope of keeping it for a while should remain a part of the game.
