All Maps Weekend
« on: January 12, 2018, 12:21:12 PM »
I was wondering if we could try out adding all available maps to the BF1 server over the weekend. It seems to be running very well as it is, however I would admittedly enjoy it much more since I really like the premium maps and the regulars get boring quickly.

If it proves successful we might be able to leave the premium maps on if you'll agree. These days premium is rather cheap so I should expect that the server would be running just as well, plus more fun for us :)

What do you say, will we give it a shot?

I will reluctantly put them on for the weekend. I appreciate everyone gets a bit fed up with the vanilla maps and I really like some of the premium maps but the server is full every night so I wouldn't want to change anything on a permanent basis at this stage.

Also I wouldnt want to take the results just from the weekend as a pointer of how popular it could be as I always think you will get more traffic on the weekend  and i personally think it wouldnt be a true reflection of how popular it could be on a weekday. We should really test it on a Monday/Tuesday.

I am working tommorow so I will put them on first thing in the morning so if people can avoid seeding the server from around 8am so I can make the changes that would be much appreciated. As i can't update the server whilst players are on.  :)

Cheers

Thanks Neox :) I understand why you're reluctant to switch, from a manager's point of view. I was only hoping we could twist it a bit more to our liking as long as it does no harm to its popularity.

What's the point of having our own server if we tweak it to be full every evening, but don't like to play on it ourselves anymore. I presume everyone enjoys the variety. Who would personally prefer a vanilla-only server to play on?

I don't mean to question your decision, but this may also be something to take into consideration (no disrespect) :)

Yes it's a fair point Blue and I totally understand where you are coming from. Trust me I would much rather we would have ALL the premium maps on the server rather than just vanilla just conscious about the server taking a real dip in popularity and also making it harder to fill / seed for the regular seeders.  I would of thought we may have quite a few regulars who play on the server who only have the stock maps also  so wouldn't want to scare them off :)

Anyway let's see how the weekend  goes and maybe test it on a couple of days in the week sometime In the next couple of weeks.

Wow, thanks! :D I actually wanted to thank you for enabling it over the weekend and not bother you anymore for at least two weeks :P But yes, the server was indeed full for long periods during the weekend, went very well. I had lots of fun, too :)

Now let's see how it masters its baptism of fire ;D

What's the verdict? :) I'd say being full all week through speaks for itself :D
