I definitely agree with this. My playstyle seems to be much more suited to 24-player because I tend to play different classes all the time, some of which I'm not great at. I don't like feeling as if I HAVE to pick a certain class because it's absolutely necessary for our team to win. I also agree that it would help balance out the teams in case of very skilled players. I'm also all for allowing more people in who want to be part of the community but don't have slots yet. It seems like you need a slot to simply get into main at the moment. And if more jerks show up, there are usually always admins on the server.

While the game points are all valid, I am not entirely sure this will affect player traffic in bacon and eggs. Mainly because neither bacon or eggs are widely promoted, at least compared to how much main is promoted.

 

I'd think increasing Main's player count would just make Bacon and Eggs even more abandoned.

I don't have a slot and I haven't had a problem getting on the server in months.

 

If we get more people this could also increase the popularity of eggs and bacon if main is full.

I don't know about everyone else but if Main's full and there are a few people in the other two servers, I don't bother with the other two servers, I just go somewhere else entirely. I go to Main to play with Nommers. It's nice to play with people I know.

after playing a game like mount and blade warband online i do find that rage is alot less when its more team and less 1v1 and that even trolling is harder as there are too many people for it to have great effect.

 

an auto join plug in would be nice if there was a way to go to the other team without having to ask a admin, maybe making it harder by console command or something

My primary issue in a 16-man server is that, as mentioned before, it has the tendency to die down very quickly when there's stuffs like people bugging out to play MvM/other things or due to a bad map.

 

I'd anticipate worse fps in a 24-man server but if it helps to keep the action going over several maps or even a few rounds of the cycle, why not?

I agree with this man. Let's give it a try.

I don't mind playing with new people as long as they aren't jerks and trolls.

Besides, when the server is full, it reaches around 24 anyway. Regulars who don't have their passes yet (or just people who want to join) would be able to play this way without having to wait for the server to reach back to 15 (and that's usually when everyone leaves anyway).

There are some really good points brought up here. I think this is worth a try. Bacon/Eggs will stay as they are, main up to 24 on a trial basis. To those suggesting an auto-join plugin, let's see how things go with the increase in player count first.

 

[...]isn't eggs a MvM server. [...]

 

Eggs is not MVM, it's just down, and due to lack of use I haven't bothered bringing it back up. MvM1 and MvM2 are their own servers.

Didn't even know we had MvM servers. Does it Mann Up or just regular MvM?

Only Valve server can be Mann Up mode.

 

 

Also Neh those two MVM Servers have been out of date for some time, I got a group together the other night to only find out those servers are not up to date so noone can go on them.

While only valve servers can be in Mann Up mode, you can play those scenarios on our servers by calling a difficulty mode vote.

I'm going to fix them up with the same stuff main and bacon have soon, sorry about that. As for right now, there was a problem about an hour ago, but it's fine now and they are updated.
