    Does anyone feel horny about a 32 player TDM server? These tend to be uber popular. It's abit rapey though so maybe normal and not HC.

    Definitely, I reckon it should be a server that alternates modes, keep everyone on their toes.

    Played for around 3 hours last night... Can I just say that the admins seriously need to look at banning mortars on seine crossing! There was this one douche who was camping in spawn and mortaring the bridges like a retard. Did it the whole god damn round... :rolleyes: Got a round score of like 36-6 for being a camping tard.

    Also can we please remove the Tehran Highway map, its woeful... Promotes camping and mortar girls like you wouldn't believe. I think you'll be hard pressed to find people who like this map as its way to spammy in every regard...

    I completely agree with you here. However last time I checked TDM was limated to 24 slots or something? So the moment you go over that it becomes a unranked server? I could be completely wrong here so please do correct me. Either way we could set up both server to alternate every two maps. So two rush two TDM etc etc. Keeps both the HC and non HC people happy. Would anyone be unhappy with that?

    AFAIK there aren't any commands to just disable certain weapons at the moment. There may be a plugin for it using ProCon but with the current state of the tool it would mean increasing the likelihood of server crashes, which nobody wants. If people are spamming the shit out of it from spawn then guess we can just ask them to move or ask a admin to jump on.

    If everyone doesn't want Tehran Highway then we would be more then willing to remove it from the map list. I can do it when I get spare time today, however we would need feed back from the community.

    The issue he means is people doing it from the uncappable areas like their spawn. Even if they light up it is still impossible to get them because the other team simply can't get into the area.

    derp.

    Step one, select support.

    Step 2, find a good spot

    step 3, deploy mortar.

    step 4, fire on enemy mortar.

    Step 5, profit (100 points)

    Seriously... How is sitting in your spawn mortaring got anything to do with tactics :rolleyes: Anyone can camp it up like a fag and get 10.0 K/D ratio sitting in the spawn with a mortar. I want carnage with weapons from people I can see and are man enough to get dirty with close combat :) I couldn't care less about K/D ratio, I'm about pushing objectives and actually TRYING to capture the flags.

    FFS, its knobs like you that really shit me about this game. I bet you're one of those "ohhh geee, I'm so awesome, look at my K/D ratio from sniping or mortaring at spawn", but are to girly to get their hands dirty. How bout you man up, grow a pair and actually get in the thick of combat (ohhh noooo, who would have thought! :rolleyes:)

    never heard of constructive criticism? I'm sure the server admins would like to know what is annoying the players, hence they have a discussion about the servers :rolleyes:

    If someone is raping the other team with a mortar, you will find that team wins due to the fact it can cap with ease.... its a team game.


    I have sat behind a wall on that map (not in the uncap) and clocked up 40 mortar kills and we dominated the map. Not one person attempted to mortar me back and thats not bad game mechanics or me being hax... it just dumb people on the other team.

    If both side use mortars you will find no one dies to them since all they do is fire at each other.
