Maxplayers Changes

Recommended Posts

Pretty much

main = eggs

eggs = main

bacon = delicous

bacon server = the same

 

But is main going to become the fooling around server and is eggs going to become more serious play? Or is main going to remain the more serious, and eggs the fooling around?

So, what about those people that only know about the main server, how do we move people to Eggs 'n Bacon?

 

Anyways, I can't wait to actually go to a non-empty Bacon again, if it works out. C:

Bacon might want another 4 slots though

Now I wonder. Will the Eggs regulars now go to Main, or will they stick with Eggs? I don't think all the talking that can happen on Eggs would be welcome on Main.

 

 

I decided yesterday to play on Main more often, so I'm totally okay with this news.

 

Main should be where the regulars go, and I wanna go where they go.

I joined Eggs to see what it was like.

 

A whole bunch of pubbers. The plan worked.

 

Bacon, however, is still a ghost town.

I really liked the higher player count, seeing as how it's almost always a full server, but now everyone who plays on the main server and not bacon&eggs will be waiting to get into main instead of filling up the bacon and eggs servers, because they're 'regulars' but not 'donators', therefore defeating the purpose... and so Eggs will be the new Main and Main will be the new Eggs. And Bacon will always be empty.

 

I guess I'll be packing my bags and heading off to eggs or bacon (which will be ~half empty or more), I don't want to wait 30 minutes to play for 5 minutes then get kicked because a premium member wants on or from a random tf2 crash.

 

I don't see a lot of benefit to 32 players now days, so none of the servers will have that.

You get to see a lot more diversity when it comes to skill, and there aren't as many steamroll rounds. Plus you can have at least one of every class at a single moment in time, not available in counts under 18.

 

...I'm just not sure what to think on this new change. I guess I'm just used to main being fun to play on rather than it being a competition.

I was wondering why main felt dead, that would explain things. Can`t say I`d play on a lowcap like that much, makes some classes pretty worthless and turns things into feeling like an endless scrim game filled with soldiers demo`s and heavies.

You seem to be confusing us with some other server. We don't have a 'donators' tier, nor do we kick people to make room.

Looking right now, there's 5 admins and 4 reserved on main, and 3 admins + 2 reserved on eggs, so we're getting there. There's no logical reason why bacon is empty and eggs is completely full right now, they are configured exactly the same.

 

I don't see how people having fun and chatting prevents people from playing for real.

And main is still for playing for real, but if its a lot of fun people on, who knows what will happen. :)

 

The only reason I have that whole bacon/eggs is not serious thing is because I have a rogue admin who happens to own that server that likes to spawn pumpkins on the capture point DURING THE MATCH, so since I can't stop him, the best I can do is say dont expect to have a serious game over there. Play at your own risk there, I know it has the nom name, but I don't have absolute control over it.

main is still my baby, I take good care of it, we don't abuse people during the match, if we get a rogue admin doing that over there, they won't be admin anymore, so it hasn't happened in a very long time.

Real gameplay can be maintained on all the servers here without it degrading to a mario_kart funserver though.

Whoops, I didn't realize reserved slots were gotten by favoritism from admins. (having 'donate' at the top of the sanvich on the front page go nowhere doesn't help either :wacko: ) My mistake.

To get a slot, you have to play here regularly, be respectful, mature, and be liked by the admins. The process works by an admin nominates you to the rest of us, and if approved, they get a slot.

My only problem with this is that it would often take anywhere from 2-15 minutes just to get into the Main server when it was full before. With 16 players, I feel like I hardly have a chance to play there now. If it's supposed to be a sort of "VIP clubhouse" as Ratty put it, then I don't even know if I'm VIP.

This announcement makes me sad, my first fond memories of playing TF2 were on a 32 player count main server. I had a lot of fun on it, I tried bacon later on but was never really a fan of it's occasional craziness. Things on Main seemed to change a few months ago when regulars I used to see in Main seemed to just disappear. I remember Main from a year ago (when I first started playing TF2), as I fun place with great people, but last time I played it was just kinda of meh. I don't think decreasing it to 16 players will help things get better, as things seemed to not go so well during the time it got temporarily reduced from 32 to 24. Maybe I'm just too out of the loop to understand as I've gone from being sort of a regular to almost not playing TF2 at all for like 3 months.

Bumping Eggs up to 24 just made it so more people can head there. Doubt think it's a configuration issue, but more of a social networking kind of issue. The last time I remember it being regularly filled, it had frequent connection issues server-side, and I'd guess everyone left because of it, then everyone and their friends play elsewhere.

 

Just hold on until the weekend arrives. If that doesn't help, some of those regulars might have to drop in on Bacon for it to live. Or server messages. Or keep switching the server names between Eggs and Bacon.

Played for hours tonight on a full Main server. One of the best Tf2 nights I've played in quite some time. Everyone was friendly, we would laugh, jeer, and make jokes at each other, while still playing the game seriously.

 

That's what brought me to nom. That's what makes me stay.

So I take it you love the idea, Itami?

 

Anyway, curse you Ratty for doing this when College is in full for me! I wanna play something fierce but I'm bogged down. I feel like a dog on a leash! Like the idea, mostly because I hate 32 man. Way to laggy and hectic in my opinion. See everyone on Main!

Complete and total opposite.

 

Now main is going to be where the admins are(where they'll use admin 'for the lulz') while eggs will be somewhat populated by the normal pubbers who come here but get on the forums while those who don't know about the other servers will move on because they can't get on main. Meanwhile eggs will have no admins and those people who do go to eggs will be free to do what they want. Some guys were going off about "furfags and gays" and some other stuff that wouldn't be tolerated if an admin just so happened to go by eggs.

 

 

Basically we now have Main as the "VIP room" and the other servers as public rooms branching off it. Problem is that main is the big center room of nom and the only way to get to the other rooms is by going through the main server at one point or another(getting introduced to nom). I really don't think this would a good idea. You should have just made an admin announcement saying that you needed people to take care of the responsibility they had been given and actually admin the servers, not just one server.

I think bacon is empty because apart from people who frequent the forum no one knows it exists, it would be worth while listing all of the server ips into the message of the day so that when people join the server they'll notice that there is in fact another server that they could jump on.

Oh really? :rolleyes:

na that was like one time which is fair enough.

 

Anyhoo, if the pubers go to eggs instead of bacon now the mission has not been accomplished, if so I would like help from some people to try to get bacon running again.

Nope. Ratty doesn't allow that on Main (his baby).

while eggs will be somewhat populated by the normal pubbers who come here but get on the forums while those who don't know about the other servers will move on because they can't get on main. Meanwhile eggs will have no admins and those people who do go to eggs will be free to do what they want.

That was kinda the whole idea of this plan: Use bacon and eggs for pubbers, and the expensive main for regulars.

 

Basically we now have Main as the "VIP room" and the other servers as public rooms branching off it.

read above.

Problem is that main is the big center room of nom and the only way to get to the other rooms is by going through the main server at one point or another(getting introduced to nom).

Or browsing through the server lists...

 

Itami, admins aren't gonna be everywhere at once. Would you like to go to a server where you have no idea who anybody is while all your friends are on another server? Besides, some regulars and admins still play on eggs from time to time... just not all the time. So it's basically the old main, but with a new name.

thanks for this, 32 players was ruining the game a bit cause of all the spam and heavy/engie spam and it's just awful. But like Chloe said, what are the max players if you count reserved slot holders jumping in?

Isn't it just like eggs where the max slot is 32 players but 16 reserved slots and 16 public slots?

so there's just more reserved slots for main then? I guess that's better then a full 24 randoms
