its a pity, usefull setting gone. it helped to get servers going with good/smaller maps in the beginning and big maps later.
or setup chronologic cycle from 39-45 in a ww2 mod.
and yes my sf mapcycle doesnt make much sense without it.
without idlemap i would say make sure 3 maps run bewteen them but try to keep warlord and ghosttown together.
or keep Levi and Perch together?
if server is dead its dead. if people want to play those maps they can join and play.
if they want to vote they can skip both and keep going for another 6 maps.
i dont know.. maybe depends on vote setting.
no, you need 4 players on server to start a kick or mapvote and 4 players in team to start mutiny. maybe 4+1commander, not sure.
the ammount of players needed to make votes succesfull is some other setting, looks like 60 or 70% ingame, ok imo.
there are many votes but i dont think its abuse/ just for fun votes.
often mapvotes just fail with just 1 or 2 votes missing, then 2 people disconnect and the other 5 cant skip Perch because votes disabled, server dead with 5 potential players.
and its rare that somebody gets kickvoted off the server for fun.
some try but fail, if they get annoying they get kickvoted themself, with success.
with setting 2 the players would have abit of control over the server.
2 guys can vote the map they want to play on, idle on better map, or practice something
or kickvote the 3rd guy wallhacker
or mutiny the spamcommander in a 3 vs 2 no-rank noobs
now that would be a dream! i will see what i can do.
commander is the worst in bf2, its like minimaphack for all, wtf
red dot hunting.. kids dont play hide and seek anymore?
back in the day one guy had to spot the enemy with binoculars and another aim artygun, and no points for the spotter!!
and not just some click and $$$ on minimap /rant
thanks sharky, next kill is free for you
