TV7 Refresh

Post by belak » Mon May 19, 2014 1:38 am

Seems like it's been a while since TV7 has had any map switches, so I just wanted to throw the idea out there.

I know a few maps have been somewhat "server killing" at times, though I'm not sure which ones. I'm personally just interested in a little more variety.

So, what's everyone's opinion? Different maps? Switch a few out? Good the way it is? And if switch a few out... which ones should be removed and which ones should be added?

I agree.
I wouldn't mind seeing Badlands, snakewater, granary and foundry take a hiatus and maybe replaced with cp_gorge, ctf_turbine, cp_fastlane, cp_coldfront give or take a map. I think the pl maps do well in keeping the server busy.

I agree that it's probably time to look at a couple maps and swap them out. Pl maps seem to be pretty popular and would agree with rumple. Though I'd keep foundry

So, what's the official route to go about this? I though it was voted on every month or two, but I think I've always missed that.

We tried that a few times but it didn't work so well. I'm sure the server Ops will see this thread and talk about it.

Any of you guys ever play CP_Junction? I've always enjoyed that map but I'm not sure how popular it is among the players here.

I share your enjoyment of Junction, and we once had it available. Sadly, I believe it has been largely described around here as "the worst map ever" and "worse than Egypt." I happen to like close quarters battles and tight quarters, but it seems we have many with the opposite view.

This is a universal opinion and not just here. Most everyone including some members of the TF2 team believe that Junction, while a nice looking map, is just far too small and congested for typical gameplay.

This is hard to be cool and suave while being informative at the same time. Goddamn my coolness.
In my experience, common sense isn't too common.

Junction's a pretty cool map. I mean, what other map lets you clip through stand inside computer terminals?

I like junction and egypt. I like turbine, chaos, mach4 and doublecross. I know a lot of fellow villuns despise these maps. I enjoy revisiting these maps, they are good in small doses.

The bottom line here (I feel) is that while some of these maps (Egypt as an example) might not be perfect, they are at least decent and something "new" in the sense that we don't play them all the time. I'd be perfectly ok with some maps that aren't uber popular with a 5 star rating if it meant some variety.

The "new" maps coming in are fun the first time around. Problem is people play them a few times and then get real sick of them. Or we get regulars who quit when they know one of these maps is coming up. We went through this several months ago I think with Gravel Pit. Fun when no one had seen it in a while, but wore out its welcome.

Keeping tv7 full (and seeding it in the first place) is hard enough with the lack of quick play, it seems like we all have to make more of an effort these days. I would hate to make that harder by having a map that is going to empty things out. While it would be fun to see one of these maps in for a week or so, I would hate to ask someone to pull maps and put new ones in that often.

Agreed, playing the maps I mentioned and similar unpopular ones are probaby better to play by hopping on other servers that host them, although it still would be nice for maybe a quarterly or semi-yearly refresh of maps on tv7 if possible.

In my experience,
5CP maps kill TV7
process and foundry seem to be the most common offenders presently during my time on.

Foundry is cool because of the achievements specifically tied to the map that a lot of players might be looking for. But it does tend to kill the server, especially with unbalanced teams.
