Two bits of news regarding our servers for you.

Firstly, I have set up a Zombie Horde server on the IP of the Warcraft server, as it looks like it might take quite a while to fix the Warcraft plugin, after the latest Steam update.

For those that don't know what a zombie server is, you join CT and all the T are actually Zombies, with 500 health, which regerates and they can only be hurt by headshots... The only good thing is, they can only maul you, not shoot you. There are 10 zombies on terrorists, so if you go on, make sure you have some backup!

Secondly, there will be some upgrades done to our servers later on today (Sunday) at somepoint, so if the servers vanish for a while... don't panic! :)

Please feedback on both counts, any comments you have for us.

The new ZH server totally ROCKS! Glad we've finally got one! But to make it better i think it would be good to restrict Auto sniper and AWP, because with those weapons available people start camping where zombies cant reach and makes it waaaaaaaaay to easy. But other than that its great. :D

Snipers have already been restricted. :) Actually did it during the game on assault earlier, just takes a map change to take effect.

It definitly seems popular. Very early this morning it was already full. Granted, full is only 8 people, as there have to be 12 zombies (bots) in all the time.

It would be great if when people join T it booted a zombie... but not sure thats possible.

Zombies Rock!!!!!! on the server start page you may want to mention that only head shots work tho, also could you make it dark? i'v played on a different zombie server and it was very dark n good fun, saying that the zombies where not so hard to kill!!!!!

There is another zombie mod where all the maps are extremely dark, and when you get knifed by the zombie you become a zombie. It's called moonzombie or somethin of the sort, but its not as good as zombie horde

Assault is the most popular out of all the servers.

Not sure about that now. The Zombie server had the most people on at 9am this morning :lol:

I've dropped the ping boost tonight at about 9pm, tell me how you think the lag and reg is without it (less lag, but maybe less reg?)

seems less laggy, bullet reg doesn't seem adversly affected, much.

@mcbain, but that could be that it is new and everyone is trying it out, think how long the assault server has been up and still how popular it is.

At the end of the day - Assulat is a crappy buggy map, there's nothing more to add... ;)

I'm still waiting for de_artmuseum for CS:S! :wub:

I think assault is a great map, just wish there were different variations of it like there was on 1.6. A few changes here and there would make it better though as its currently Terrorist orientated.

Assault is not crappy.

Some great ones in there that i am waiting to be ported.
