Remove Carnage & maybe Sand from rotation

15 posts in this topic

I don't post often but I think something needs to be said about Carnage Club being in the rotation lol.  Last few times I've joined the server empty, its on Carnage Club.  Did it get added as a late April fools joke or something? ;) As the last 'normal' Renegade server left, I think maybe we should remove the joke maps so we can slow Renegade's death a bit. Sand is bad enough, but Carnage Club, please no lol.  On the bright side, thanks for having a server at all.

In fact there's already a thread about removing carnage http://rencorner.com/index.php?/topic/9556-please-take-carnage-club-out-of-aow-rotation/

But yeah, those of us who are active enough have already seen that carnage is just killing the player count, making players go elsewhere. And it's not a matter or fixing pts, music, lowering time or w.e. Carnage is fun for a couple days, but not forever in a marathon server that goes aow more than it should be (that % should be lowered tbh, but that's another matter).

When will it be gone? Who knows, but for the sake of having the server full more often, I hope (and I'm not the only one) that it happens soon.

The rotation would be better if it was just the vanilla and RxD maps by default,

If that approach was ever considered then all other maps should be available on the server including carnage (it is fun to play now and again) available to play based on an ingame poll for next map or something similar.

 

also, I think the time limit should be removed from all maps, I see a lot of people complain or try to skip map when it is timed.

A lot of people like to play aow for a change as well.

Problem is that sometimes 2-3 maps in a row are timed and happen to trigger the insane % of aow chance, and THEN, the fourth is one of those that is always timed (sand, field, under rxd, etc), which makes us mara lovers (there's also a lot, more than aow I'd say) ask when on earth we're gonna be able to play a map for more than 30 minutes without having to go rushing everywhere.

I love the timed AOW games.  I'm not here to complain about that.  I think there's a perfect balance between AOW & Marathon to keep everyone happy.

Carnage Club on the other hand is killing the game.  Who's in charge of the map rotation?  I volunteer to help and give advice!

Everyone knows I love Renegade, and when I see something out of whack, I have to speak up.

For the love of Renegade, fix the rotation!!! :)

I enjoy AOW mode too, its how the game was designed to be played and when it comes down to points everything really matters + games get pretty intense toward the end :). GDI  also have a better chance of winning on Nod bias maps.

only pointed it out because a few people try to skip or leave :(

We're not going to remove sand. However, we COULD remove Carnage from the rotation. We added that to the rotation because more voted for !carnage then !no_carnage. We did what people wanted, lol.

I haven't been able to play in a while so I'm not sure what it's like but Carnage needs to be removed. I voted for it, but as soon as I saw how it was affecting the server I jumped ship for sure. It's killing player counts and should be removed regardless of what people think for the betterment of the community. We shouldn't even be having a discussion about this. When player counts go from 20 to 2 there's a serious problem. Get rid of it.

The problem with carnage is that it IS in theory a fun map, it is however, not fun when the player count is anything above 4v4, one team getting raveshaws or snipers first just equates to the other team being camped at every single spawn and just dying repeatedly for a solid 30 minutes with very little opportunity to sway the outcome of the game.  I think lots of people originally thought it would be awesome but then abandoned ship on the idea once they saw it in practice.  I feel if the poll was reset now that it's actually in the rotation the vast majority would vote to take it off.

Didn't even know it was in but I would suggest removing it and have set as a votable map if there are players in game that want to play it every once in a while. Or better yet get the Snipe server back up.
