Well I normally get a chance for a few rounds at some point between 6-9pm.
Yeah I errr, may have been having a bad day. Sorry for the bitching. >.<
I did not see your last post as bitching at all. :) I fully agree with you. Having a set number of minimum people to start a game is rubbish. You could spend ages waiting for the server to fill. A 2 person minimum should be in place but as usual, the minority ruin it for the majority.
This is a feature they brought across from BC2. When BC2 was first released on PC, a game would start with only 1 person on the server (rankled or unranked) so people joined a rush server on their own and played as assault with C4 and blew up all the M-COM stations and effectively raped the points out of resupplying, playing as assault and destroying al the M-COMS! So in the first patch, they set a minimum player limit on ranked servers to (I think) 4 people. :(
I can see the pros and cons from both sides. :(
One mate plays only 64 man conquest on metro and just rapes points at the bottle neck on the stairs. He only plays as medic or assault and revives people/resupply's them. Most games he finishes with 11k points so is storming through the ranks. Totally defeats the purpose of the game IMO...
I'm referring to Vent every time I failed to kill someone. :P
From the upcoming patch notes:
Also, it will once again be possible to reduce the number of players required to start a round to 1 both in ranked and unranked mode. We changed it back after getting a lot of negative feedback from both individuals and the RSP companies.
The patch is out! Has the player start limit been changed yet on the EduGeek server? :)
I'll get on to it tonight!
Patch has been installed - I've updated the config to take into account the new rule.
Jeez your faster than Sonic the Hedgehog on speed! :)
I'll also add in PBBans to the server later this evening as I can't do it whilst on the clock.
Any further changes you would like? Could really use some help getting it kicked off again!
I think just the "2 people to start a game" change will make a big difference! I'll try to pry myself away from Skyrim tonight for a bash on the server. When there were 20 odd peeps playing on it, it was good fun. :)
If you decided to go down the hardcore route, please leave 3rd person jets on! ;)
Still waiting to see if people want HC - doesn't make much odds to me as I'm usually a hardcore player.
I'd never turn off 3rd person, I use it far too much to check what's on my tail!
