So, I've applied the changes and also threw in some less known maps in the rotation. Hopefully they are welcome! I've lowered the ticket ratio and set the rounds to 2. The idea is to have shorter rounds, but more intense; and the goal is to make the server's population increase ... because as of right now we're stuck at zero all the time. smile So I said, "something must be changed!".

Enjoy,

No, I doubt I will.
Should I? Which name would you take?
Cause it's still an infantry rotation technically. tongue

It was not in Barracks; I didn't find it there at least. It was something along the lines or Infantry Warfare wasn't it? Anyhow, I don't know if that would be that much beneficial, considered we have the current name on our banner too. amused

Maybe in the first time we should start populating the server by being on it with 4 guys of us at the same time, bc no one goes on an empty server. When my internet will be back up maybe me and some other guys can hang out on the server and maybe people will come

Thank you very much. The other day I managed to start it, but it takes time to grow a full match. Two days ago I saw some people play it. In reality we're still not known so much I fear; our userbase still needs to acknowledge us! smile

I fully appreciate that you mean well here and are attempting to stimulate our servers with your ideas everyone. I'm happy for this discussion to continue and then to consider making some potential changes, if they make sense. However, it's not that long ago that i swapped all of the servers over (can't be much more than 6 weeks), in this case it was Karkand Infantry Only to Infantry Rotation.

Now, some of you may remember a few evenings back when i was last online where we had some good battles on the new Infantry Rotation Server., on 64 Player Map Sizes. Yes, there was a bit of organisation in the Shoutbox to get a group of us online but that is all that is required to get it going.

My strategy with our Servers has always been to win peoples trust over the long term with reliability and consistency, that is how you keep players coming back for years and having only recently made changes to this server and others, i'm a bit surprised to return after 6 weeks to see it's settings have now been heavily modified, for instance with the reduced player count. I'm afraid as i've said before i do not believe the secret to success with our servers is trying to continously tweak settings to fit everyone's last wish, let's just say i wouldn't have sanctioned these changes had i been online.

Part of people's desire to come and play in our servers or "be attracted to us" is based on our strength in knowing what we are doing and the message we send out, being consistent with what we offer so players know they are guaranteed a certain level of quality in terms of their entertainment when they play in our Servers. Whilst, tweaking Player Counts & Map Sizes may be required on Special Forces where there are far fewer players (and according to the feedback I've seen - your tactics seem to be working), this approach is not one i condone with our Vanilla Servers.

We simply need to support these quieter servers by getting on them and playing, that may mean you join one of our empty Servers from time to time and call for Backup in the Shoutbox, trust me i've spent 100's of hours trying to get empty servers going over the years. This sustained effort and increased coordination/advertising is our Formula to success. No amount of tweaking other settings is going to help fix wider issues like this, trust me.

I want people to know they can rely on us and our offering and be confident that we know what we are doing, that is why i will be reverting Infantry Rotation, Oman & Vehicle Rotation Servers back to their previous setup of when i was last online. These are the base settings from which any such discussions on changing them will proceed.

Please do not take offence anybody or think i don't appreciate your efforts, but this is my executive decision as XO.

Cheers,

5tarLine

None taken,

we may consider this as a test run; plus now we have a CQC profile if need be, that we can swap to with no effort. :'D
