bring back next map vote! 06 Oct 2013 19:07 #47625

and stop taking it out!

its a pain in the ass but it is needed!

so on fata moragana our attempts to call surrender vote gets canceled.
someone does a poll vote for next which passes with 20 votes.
but surrender keeps getting canceled. fine lame whatever...

but the map doesn't end!!! it keeps going and even after time is over the surrender votes get canceled!!!

please stop being that lame it ruins this game and this server!

my two cents.
dieing daily for your experience.

+1.

Also this specific map needs a script fix. Some mod cancelled about 10 votes and made it go on for 20 minutes after the map countdown ended.
I have no idea why he or she thought this map is so great that 40 people needs to be forced to play it forever.

Seriously if you don't care what the players want (and there was zero ppl who said they want to play on) maybe you should move on and play against bots?

hey,

since i am back (more or less) i do polls for nextmap, that s true.
i see them as passed when yes reaches the number of votes of the bigger
team, so specs are not part of the number that the server wants to pass
the poll.
what i do not do: i do not cancel the first three surrender votes, because
i respect the players' right to call surrenders. but i do cancel from
then on, because it s just annoying voting. so if your surrender
vote does not pass, don t blame us admins.

although i will clarify the cancel topic in the admin forum, just to be
sure.

and you are right, on fata morgana this _is_ a problem. so if someone
is able and wants to write a mapfix that lets the map also end as a "tie",
please feel free to do so and give me a message when it s done. i do not
have the time right now to do it myself. i d really appreciate that.

my 100 bucks ;)

well I agree seeing failing surrender votes time and time again is annoying (unless it is the other team trying to do it).

I don't mind nextmap vote being disabled for the first week or so of a new rotation.
some people just don't like to play new maps or old so-so maps.

but having nextmap off all the time isn't good. it is nice to see admins polling for next, but there are not that many actual admins on kernwaffe and more often then not they are not around (which is a whole nother kettle of fish that should probably be stirred).

of course in the example I game above someone had done a next poll and 20 people said yes. now I can understand an admin wanting to play the map and ignoring the poll, that is their right. but what bothered me most in the example above is that surrender votes after the time limit for the map was passed were also canceled! fata morgana could have gone any amount of time afterwards. so since I didn't want to play that map I did other things while it ran, but since I wasn't paying attention I came in late to goldrush which I had wanted to play.

nother penny on the pile.

i empathize, i really do. i hate it when i miss the map i waited for
the whole (playing) day and there are fracking 3 cycles in the campaign.
many more hours to wait ... that sucks. i wouldn t do it tho.

i think we had that topic on teamspeak, not sure if we both were
talking. but i for myself am really thinking about suggesting to
disable it maybe a week after a new campaign was put on the server
and then enable it again. because there are a lot of maps people might
miss because of the nextmap votes. some of us staff have favourite
maps which are not very popular and still wanna play them from time
to time, so do you too, i bet. at least that s what i read in your
posting.

so i will bring up the issue with the admins involved and think we ll
find some compromise ...

personally i hate the vote.....its fine if it it used as it is meant to be, but too many people abuse it and spam the hell out of a map with the vote.....1 person doesn't like the map starts a vote that doesn't pass and then starts a an avalanche of votes that the majority of the time similarly fail.....

ive seen votes pass that are tied and votes passed in instances where people have voted to keep playing a map....which suxs harder than an elderly lady with no teeth....enjoy the game and don't fixate so much
