OCR TF2: New Server forthcoming - new server IPs and other stuff

Recommended Posts

Oh, whoops, I got back to my computer and saw a message with Clefairy asking me to restart the server, I checked to see if there was a TF2 update, saw that there was, and restarted it.

Which is why it restarted again awhile after Fire restarted it.

Just looked at my stats page.

For however long the stats hold things in their records, there are FOUR people who I don't have more than a 1:1 kill death ratio with.

Ξ|nQa|Ξ Scythe-Messiah (this guy pretty much beats the shit outta me everytime we see each other)

Sub (dunno who this is)

[lions]Clefairy(.83 k/d. CURSES!)

Lumpy (this is 1:1 exactly, although I have no idea how. I don't ever remember killing Lumpy when things get serious)

Thought that was all interesting, figured I'd share.

:3

How odd. My K/D against you matches my K/D overall. :shock: Not a lot to talk about on my page other than having the most kills on garian(he has the most on me as well).

On topic, tonight was great. Thanks to everyone who showed.

Well...it turns out I was so busy with various things on my end, I didn't get to alter the mapcycle - I'm going to trust Powerlord & FireSlash to figure out a tweaked rotation that'd be amenable to the most people.

This guy and another nQa guy were on the other day, and destroyed us. They teamed up as soldier+medic and were scoring over 100 points easy in every map, while everyone else was maybe 40 or so. It was pitiful.

Garian brought up in IRC the idea of playing some other team based source mods.

Eternal Silence - A team based space shooter. It has some varying ship types, game modes, etc.

Dystopia - Cyberpunk style shooter.

let me know and I'll toss up a server for one.

Eternal Silence is pretty cool, and I think it'd be pretty fun/hilarious to play on a server full of people who are trying to figure out what the mess to do while having alltalk on. :D

Who knows, it might even make NeoTokyo actually fun. :/

Just wanted to pop in and congratulate Garian for hitting the one month mark. He just passed playing 30 DAYS on the server. Daamn....

So all this talk about community members only get reserve slots made me register and stop lurking...

I shall be making a tutorial video later on how I got auto-tune working with TF2 (thanks zircon!) unless someone who actually knows what they're doing wants to do it instead.

Needs more garbageday...

+1 again for garbageday. I could not find it on the server for the life of me, but then again...I'm an idiot. :-D

I installed NeoTokyo simply 'cause it looked cool...and have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. It feels like it's simply CounterStrike, but not as refined.

And yes, those NQA guys always join the same team, and one is always Medic who only heals the other NQA guy (and anyone else who's deemed worthy). It's alright, though, just gives a challenge.

Agreed. It's like when rambo and bonzai team up. As long as they don't bring their entire crew over and really team-stack I don't have a problem with it.

Only problem I have with it is when the medic doesn't heal anyone else, even when other people are dying around them. That did happen a few times when I was on the team with them. Makes me a sad panda.

Bored lunch day ftw: I have an ES server up. I need to install a few more scripts and fix a minor issue, but it should be up by around 8 EST if not earlier.

so anyone who want's to check it out, we now have a private server.

got votebanned for spamming rtv on dustbowl

just as a warning I am going to spam rtv on dustbowl from now on

I'm going to trust Powerlord & FireSlash to figure out a tweaked rotation that'd be amenable to the most people.

how about one that doesn't have dustbowl

or at the very least doesn't have dustbowl and 2fort right next to each other

So, what's this people are saying about swapping dustbowl out for garbageday?

That'd be fine with me, honestly.

And, really, keeping Dustbowl in the rotation's alright: I can find something else to do for 30 minutes or just kinda zombie my way through it. Having it right before 2fort, though...that's silly. Clefairy's going to tell me that everyone has different opinions on what's bad and while that's true, most people on the OCR forum more or less agree that Dustbowl and 2fort attract people who are less than...amazing at the game, or at life.

Put at least one map inbetween them so the pubbies from the first will have left before the pubbies from the second arrive.

[Edit:]

It's at 2fort. Again. :-(

So, anyway, there are now Team Fortress 2 avatars for Steam.

Left 4 Dead avatars, too.

So, who would I lobby about getting the smaller or smallest versions added to OCR's forum?

Edit: I've also rotated the map order a bit. Basically, I swapped ctf_2fort and cp_dustbowl. This causes them to not be together, since someone changed the default map to be cp_dustbowl at some point (it WAS ctf_2fort). I also moved the order around a bit and added garbageday.

Edit 2: Changed order again, putting two customs in a row was a bad idea. Whoops.

Map order is currently:

cp_dustbowl

garbageday

cp_granary

ctf_turbine

pl_badwater

arena_sawmill

cp_follower

cp_steel

pl_goldrush

ctf_2fort

cp_gravelpit

cp_well

pl_waste

cp_badlands

True that. :P

And now it's playing Goldrush. Another offender, though it hasn't seen much playtime lately so it isn't quite so bad.

Tangentially, clan BROS can go back into whatever hole they crawled out of. Mc_Man in particular seemed to have no idea how annoying he was.

--

So anyway. Maps. If for some crazy reason I was entrusted with changing the mapcycle, it would look something like this.

ctf_hallofdeath

pl_frontier

cp_gravelpit

arena_storm_b1c

plr_pipeline

cp_steel

ctf_turbine

arena_nucleus

pl_great_heights

cp_industrial

tc_meridian

pl_waste

arena_well

I think it's a good mix of old and new, with serious, stressful maps followed by silly or moody ones to release tension. Post your own, maybe we can come to a consensus.

Incidentally, the mapcycle tends to go weird right after its edited. Sometimes it even repeats the same map twice.

Yes, some of the BROS people tend to be annoying. In my experience, they also tend to team stack, sometime up to 6-8 at a time.

Then again, last time I checked, they weren't all that good...

That's... quite a few customs in there. At 7/13, over half. Custom nights... tend not to do so well. I can't imagine having half of the mapcycle customs would do much better.

Also a touch arena-heavy for my tastes. Also, a custom arena map that isn't arena_starship?! :o

That's the idea, really. Given the choice between playing with people I know and playing a full game, I'll take the former every time.

Certain people with bandwidth issues excluded, if someone can't be bothered to download the map (incidentally, even letting them do so is a courtesy), then they aren't here for the community; they just want to play the game. There are plenty of other servers out there who can fill that need. I'm aware it'll hurt overall turnout; I just disagree with the idea that that's bad.

EDIT: Haha, starship. I haven't played that in months, I'd love to come back to it now and again.
