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

Recommended Posts

I love Turbine. :-D Also, I'm REALLY looking forward to being able to play more Steel, as I really love that map. I think I've played it all of 3 times, but every time I've played, I've absolutely loved it. With this new update...well, it won't be a No Man's Land anymore!

(I'm back, BTW. Hope to start playing in the next few days; gotta unpack some boxes.)

So, I probably won't be on until Monday to do something in game if anything is needed with the server, as I broke a fuse last night and lost power for half of my apartment.

Turbine is often ruined by turtling engineers, but overall I think it's still a fun map, especially with the huge slaughterfests that happen in the big central room.

Six scouts rushing at the beginning pretty much ensured our engineers couldn't get set up.

Wow. That's quite a bit of engies...it also makes me sad to see my favorite class, Pyro, so frickin' high up the list...

Prediction: Scout will be the next class to get weapons/achievements/etc.

This does not necessarily show that there are more engineers than any other class. You have to take into consideration the fact than engineers often stay alive for a loooong time, such as when they are turtling behind a sentry.

Yeah - if anything I think soldier & pyro are the most played classes, with demo being third.

If this was time played per life, your argument would make sense.

However, this is Total Time Played per Class for the last week (expressed as a percent) across all official Valve maps.

I had a dream about TF2 last night. The new gametype was called "Restaurant," and it was basically the two teams running around trying to cap as much food as possible.

The Heavy had a wheelbarrow and the Soldier had a shield made of scrap-metal.

I need to go to bed earlier. :\

Not only that, they have more reason to stay Engineer than other classes have reason to stay what they are. If you switch from Engineer, your stuff gets destroyed, so there's more reason to stay Engy.

Someone needs to make this happen, STAT.

either this or sniper

I would honestly be happier if Sniper was removed entirely.

Bahamut, is there any chance you could add this map to the server, if only temporarily? Me and a few other people would love to test it out since it looks like it can be amazing (if a bit gimmicky) fun but no other server runs it. It doesn't even have to be in the rotation, it's just for testing purposes when there's barely any people on the server (and we usually mess around during those hours anyway)

I'd be up for it too, I love fooling around when it's just a few OCR chaps on the server at odd hours, all talk and low grav FTW!

Wacky Races is just like Mario Kart in the fact that it gets really old in like 5 minutes. Put it on RTV if you want it.

The stats are saying that total time per player averaged up in a percentage that the engineer is used a lot. But yes, as an engineer you spend more time as it cause you have to, yes.

They're taking a while to update it today... hopefully it's the new game mode and arenas (by the use of the word "arenas" perhaps a suggestion of a deathmatch style mode?).

What the stats mean is that, on the official Valve maps, averaged across all players, Engineers were being played 16.1% of the time in the past week.

The wording arena could also mean a multi-part map, like how Dustbowl, Gold Rush, and others are done.

Yeah, that's what I said.
