well guys, guess what. Any suggestions for the map cycle ?

this is a 64-slot BF2 server, not SF. Right now, we don't have EF maps running, since it ain't out yet officially. But since this is an EU server, I do plan to include those in the map cycle once they are out.

any maps you don't want to see ? One round or two per map ? timelimit or until the tickets expire ?

post your thoughts here. only serious suggestions please. Spamming wil not be tolerated.

rgds,
B.

- 2 rounds (players get switched to other side after 1 round)
- NO time limit, only ticketexpire.
- FF on
- Punish off
- If possible reactivate mine and claymore FF

First of all I think it's a nice idea with a new server.
Regarding the map cycle. I’ve some suggestions:
1. City
The Great Wall (EU)
Mashtuur City
Warlord (SF)
Sharqi Peninsula
Ghost Town (SF)
Strike at Karkand

Maps I rather not see is:
Wake
All the others SF maps
Dalian Plant (Been baseraped there too many times:)

I also think that it should be two rounds per map (player switch after 1 round).
Would the server be in Germany?

bad idea, it would kick players for not having the booster, same with special forces expansion.

well, the server is located in the netherlands. since this is an EU server, I do plan to include the upcoming EF maps in the mapcycle. definitely no SF maps though. too much hustle to switch between the games.

the current map cycle is

Wake
Mashtuur
Gulf of Oman
Strike at Karkand
Sharqui

This mapcycle should help getting the server populated.

2 rounds each. I haven't found out yet how to make the teams switch automatically after the first round, but I'll get to that.

I always prefer 3 rounds per map, because of the long loading times i have but also because if one side wins round 1, and the other side wins round 2, then you need to find a winner!

All maps + EF, apart from Songua Stalemate - horrible boring map.

Yawn, another city server .

My suggestion is to run all maps and then ppl can jump in when a sequence of their favourites is next. Personally I'm fed up with Karkand. But that's just me.

Edit: I created some polls about maps and nof rounds. Someone else could make polls about FF and timelimits etc if they want because I can't be bothered.

i think you should play all maps. maybe exclude zatar or songhua because they tend to kill servers, allthough i like the maps. please dont make it city only!

I´ve never played on this server so far... why? I wasnt able yet finding it, hmpf!

I´ll play today with some of my clanmates, hope to see you there.

Mapsuggestions like posted before are ok.

What about one or two days playing SF-Maps? If this question was already posted forgive me for my ignorance.

If EF is released (in a galaxy far far away) it will, of course, be nice to play EF-Maps (dont have a clue ´bout them yet so I dont can post my opinion)

I am not so sure about SF. I prefer server that either run Vanilla BF2 or SF, not both. EF maps will most likely be included in the cycle as soon as the booster is "officially" out. After all, this is an EU server. Where else would you run EF maps ?

please set as starting round strike at karkand, it's always wake running.
i think if the mapcycle hasn't started once it will always stay that way.
karkand will get the server easier full to make it run up

Remember that the 3 EuroForce maps are 16/32 player only... and the EU server is 64...
What will happen if 64 players rotate from a 64 map to a EF 32 player map ? will 32 be kicked ?

No they won t be kicked. There are many servers that run 32 player maps with 64 players...........you could even play a 16 player map with 64 people.

well, right now it doesn't look like we will be having 64 people on the server anyway, so I just might reduce the number of slots to 32, until the server is populated on a constant basis. then we will move back up to 64 slots. this will also speed up the round time considerably. Last week we were playing karkand 64 size with 12 guys and it took forever...

not right now, but I plan to extend the mapcycle as soon as we have the server running again. As mentioned before, our GSP had to take the server off yesterday due to hardware performance issues.
This was their first try at an Opteron-based system and it obviously failed dramatically. Getting a new server will take a couple of days.

Awesome, it'll be cool to play with you guys. 

But what do you think about agreeing on a rendez-vous time?  Obviously not tonight because Liverpool are playing so you should all be watching the football encouraging the mighty reds....

By the way Schuss, are you a basketball ref?  You play bball as well or do you stick to the reffing?

yep, I am a Basketball Ref but I also have been playing Basketball in my local club since 1989. So I had been a player first and then decided to become a Ref. I don't know many Refs who don't play at the same time, at least not in the minor leagues. Professional Refs don't play, obviously.

I'll be cheering on Bayern Munich tonight since they are the last german club left in the champions league ( god, why did the Bremen keeper drop that ball yesterday.. ).

We could agree on a rendez-vous time, but as long as the server is down, that doesn't make much sense, does it ? I'll be on every night, as soon as the server is back up again.
