Lets Face it this map has been a failure.
There are multiple, map ruining bugs that aren't being addresed. These make the map virtualy unplayable.
Now i say this but i already know the answer "the player base and staff are all North American so we should host there" or "weve used this host for over a year and its never lagged". Well thats bloody lovely, but face it, it lags, and face it atm, UK prime time is getting more players than US prime time, so why ignore this. Find a host that gives a decentish ping for both sides of the pond? Im sure US players would rather sacrifice a bit of their OP ping to have more players and make the server more competitive.
Alluding to my previous point of "staff are all North American" as i was told yesterday, why arent there any non US staff, whats the point in having about 6 staff whose playing times are all the same, overkill, 2 US, 2 UK, one or two AU, same number of staff, better time coverage.
Similarly staff have quit playing as well, sorry to namedrop but when i came on today some staff hadnt been on in 4 days and now it is rare i see staff on (Combination of UK time and Staff inactivity). Also staff names are far too confusing, Jr admin suggests they should have most perms to quickly resolve nearly any issue on the server, keep it modplus people will understand what they can do.
Where do i start. Farming OP, spawners not so. Within one or two days people had over a mil by digging out unclaimed underground huge carrot farms and netherwart farms. Pointless for others to raid but make tons of money? Spawners on the other hand force people into building bases claiming areas and thus creates raiding opportunities.
Lets face it, theres tons of surplus plugins that are just a gimmick and have more of an effect on lag, and after a week no one cares.
Sell chest, the worlds most annoying plugin. Can you make it that it has a radius or its only the chest you are looking at or something
Tracker. need i say anymore. Vacd and i built a massive one of these, pinpointed everyone who was afk in the map in one day and raided them all. Since then no one logs on, sorry.
The server is laggy, dont make these massive buildings over the koths, that add nothing to the pvp but just make it a laggyer area to pvp. (Fantasy koth). Make it so when the koth timer ends the pvp doesnt, for example cave koth, where you ant tp out got to wind through tunnels to get out and cant echest or tp out to get the crate. Would make koth far more exciting.
Granted a fair few bugs have been sorted, so bravo to that. However there are still some absolute howlers out there. Now ive tried to be discrete about these and only tell staff, however nothings been done, so if everyone reading this knows about them, hopefuly staff get off their arses and sort it.
1. The server restart oh shit my base has no water anymore bug, pretty annoying if you ask me. Servers so laggy restarts every hour or so and then ive got no water round my base.
2. Spam sponge in enemy land removes the water for good. Scenario, I build huge base many walls big creeper spawner, very hard raid with water. phase 2, someone walks along sees it, has one sponge and spams it around your base removing all of the water, simple scatter cannon, all my hard work done in a matter of minutes.
3. Creeper stacking. Stop being an arse, remove it.
Far too many! so Apollo used to be god and that has everything you need. All the ranks above this are to wishy washy. Its like adding a couple of pretty needless commands that make no difference. Forgot when i counted but theres about 10 ranks now.
Consider this map a learning curve for staff and admins etc. Accept its failed, start building a new one. Give people the spawners etc people donated for back next map and move on. Have a beta period or something, for free, where the server is up, maybe give commands to lower ranks that make it easier, like sell really cheap gen buckets so bases can be built etc and people can find bugs. Then have a proper map and release only once the server is truly ready.
Thank you and good night x
Logged on just now and remembered something. Power always decreasing when you log off for periods of time, remove this its so annoying. Granted it makes players need to log on, but also some of us work etc during the week so dont want to come on and save it for weekend, if i come on and im overclaimable because ive had stuff on, im just gunna quit, very annoying feature
