RE: Servers dying
I personally don’t think gameplay issues have anything to do with your player count going down or to zero.
The server browser is still bugging out sometimes, which might result in your server no longer showing up to those guys who were just playing the previous night. Also, some maps and game modes are server killers. I’ve had a full server die out to half or less players on one map change, with people in chat specifically saying that they don’t like the particular map. Better admin tools could fix that since we could then bump maps easily…trying to recall the formal map name is just not happening mid-game for me, and the result if you get the map name wrong is a server crash I think.
RE: Game=Awesome, Playerbase=Not So Much
I may be considered old fashioned, but I come from a clan that’s been together for many years under one tag or another, and we have never tolerated such behavior on our servers, for any game that we play, mainly because of children being in the games (face it, no matter the game rating, children will still be playing), and we have always had a large player base that returns year after year because of that intolerance for abusive behavior.
Luckily, with the easily available dedicated server software available for this game, this issue can be taken care of, with a little organization. When we play this game, I host a server and can fill up to about 20 slots before any noticable lag takes shape. For now, we’ve been calling it NOOB Training. If you see it, and you can conduct yourself in a respectable manner, by all means hop in and join us. If your going to hurl racial slurs and F’bombs don’t bother, you won’t be there long. Also, don’t come in expecting to tell us how we have to play the game. If we are playing FFA, that is exactly what it means. You don’t get to order anyone there to use their fists. (This actually happens. Had someone tell me today that I have no friends because I wouldn’t fight with my fists in OUR server, along with some other choice words he had for me, rofl. He and his little posse won’t be returning.)
Awesome dude, sounds very much like our clan. Curious if you guys ever played Day of Defeat back in the day?
I’ll stop by NOOB Training as I appreciate a gaming crew running a tight server. I think in the current wild west atmosphere of Chivalry servers, anyone actually taking the time to properly admin will gain a real strong player base.
BTW what’s your server ip, in case it doesn’t show in the browser?
RE: Can one do anything against harassment/the community dying?
Yep, the community in this game has finally driven me off. Just played in a game on the Dost Though Hoist server, having to listen the entire game to some player named President Barack Obama spam chat all game and constantly use the n-word just killed it. I can’t take the toxic community, at this point, its worse then LoL.
Hey, while I certainly understand and respect your decision I’d ask you to think it over a bit. Some servers are filled with really toxic players, but others aren’t. Just look for the ones that seem either quiet or more mature in general and favorite those.
Alternatively, just disable chat altogether and listen to music while you play. :)
Our server has zero tolerance for what you’re describing and people engaging in that crap are banned. There are plenty of cool Chiv players out there to fill our server once all the dimwits are banned away. If it literally takes banning an entire team of racists/homophobes, I will do it and the server will soon recover its player base. BTW, that doesn’t mean we ban often…just that we’ll do it when it’s necessary to keep the server mellow and enjoyable.
Only problem is that there are still stability issues plaguing some servers, awkward admin tools as well as a lack of time for our admins to be online. I’m usually around late nights Thursday, Friday & Sunday after I fire up Netflix to babysit my wife.
Anyways, if you’re West Coast jump on and you won’t have garbage like that to deal with.
RE: Clans and Pubs
I don’t mind it at all, however they should abide by the rules of the particular server and avoid stacking if the teams are uneven. Nobody likes seeing 14 vs 10 with the last four to join all from the same clan.
RE: Restrict kick voting to team members only.
So TKing is the only reason to kick someone? I’d kick anyone who insults people all the time or spams the chat if it’s against the server rules.
Agreed, votekicks aren’t always due to tkers.
RE: TO - No attacker respawns after objective time limit reached
I still don’t understand why overtime isn’t already implemented if the attacking team is on the cart/objective?
RE: Kick bound to mouse button, sometimes swings instead
The game lets you bind more than one move to the same button. Make sure you dont have a swing or alt swing already mapped to the button you assigned kick.
Ahh you know i’ll check that, thanks dude. I verified the kick is mapped to F and MB4, but I didn’t go looking at the alt attack binding.
If that’s the issue I’ll update this thread and request a mod to delete it.
EDIT: Yep, the alt-slash was default-mapped to that mouse button for some reason. Case closed.
