Following on from the search for a popular 4th server (currently Nuke) here is an idea for when militia is released:-

Server 1: Dust 2 and Militia
Server 2: Assault and Nuke
Server 3: Office and Italy
Server 4: Custom Maps

Keeps people guessing.

Server 1: Dust 2 and Militia
Server 2: Assault and Nuke
Server 3: Office and Italy
Server 4: Custom Maps

So these are the servers u want to see on LNY???. To be honest i hate the combination!!!
leave the other 3 servers just change nuke!!!

Its a good idea I think.

I think we should keep nuke- it's a good map and I like it (more importantly, other people seem to like it as wel).

I think we should keep Dust2/Office together as they kind of contrast- 1 cs_ and 1 de_, one outside in the open, the other a closed combat inside map.

I think we should either combine militia/nuke, miltia/assault or nuke/assault. :P

I don't like the combination that much either i think office should stay with dust 2 and nuke should change asswell :)

i think we should combine militia and nuke.
from what i have heard, militia sounds like a great map, so is nuke!
and when militia comes out people will want to play it so why not make a server with the two new maps?

It's a fantastic idea putting nuke and assualt together!!

They're both pants maps so it means it's only the 1 server I wouldn't visit.

Well with al due respect I don't think putting dust2 and militia on a server makes any sense at all, neither does assault-nuke:S
I would put assault and militia on the same server because the gameplay is somewhat the same and therefore will attract a certain type of player. Both are a house with hossies that needs to be taken over by CT.
As for the rest; Office-Italy is a good idea and so is a custom map server ;)

Server 1: Dust 2 and Dust
Server 2: Assault and Office
Server 3: Nuke and Militia
Server 4: Custom Maps

Server 1 would have the two dusts on it
Server 2 would have the two hostages situation maps on it
server 3 would have the 2 new maps on it

Thats how i'd go, or you could perhaps swap dust with office and have some variation while at the same time, keeping the dust_2 / Office server the same as it is quite popular.

Only an opinion

Some interesting ideas, although tbh, I've not seen anything yet to make me think we need to change the current plan. Nuke seems to be popular, but perhaps only because its new. Right now, it had less players then the custom, dust2 and assault server...

I don't think its that great a map, but perhaps that militia is. I don't mind the idea of mixing it with another map, is italy really that popular? No-one really played it when we gave it 50% of the 4th server?

We need someway of letting everyone rate all the standard maps and maybe picking the ones that consistently rate high?

yes, is there anyway we can have a poll where you can have a maximum of 8 choices?

It's not a poll we need. We need to be able to rate them all, not choose from them.

Did we not used to have a plugin that asked the people to rate the map? It was on the custom map server when it was starting up.

McBain

Yeah, but I think it lagged things a bit, and we'd need to go several times round the standard map cycle to get a reasonable cross section.

*ahem* LEAVE THE DUST2/OFFICE SERVER ALOOOONE!!!

It's the only one I really really like, although when it's full i'll go on nuke.

Well italy sucks so just keep that out of any cycle altogether. Definitly leave custom maps alone it is amazing :)

I wouldn't of thought Custom Maps would be touched, that seems to be what the LNY servers are about, offering something different.

I would hope the Office / Dust2 server would remain untouched as well as that rulez. It's the only server that I can find that plays these two maps, it's always full, and people playing on it don't bicker like little girls.

Italy, Aztec and (unfortunately) Dust seemed to fall down a bit when introduced. I'm wondering whether this is more to do with the fact that a lot of people will only play servers in their favourites channel and don't often search the full list. I'm not sure what can be done about this other on server / website advertising.

As soon as Militia comes out I'm sure any combi server like D2/O would be very successful. It's just a matter of finding the other map. The one thing I like about D2/O is you have hossies and a bomb scenario so it doesn't too boring. I've never played Militia btw so I have no idea what everyone's raving about.

I agree with the first part - the dust2/office server has some truly awesome players on it who are devout regulars.

As for the second part - send LNY

Admin just isn't about booting people who anoy you, it is about keeping the servers going and a nice, fun environment.

Umm, just a quick update. :)

Apparently Militia will be released this week, and the new players models "will go out around the same time". Valve are "testing them now".

After all the hype about Militia it had better be good! Is it comparable to any of the current maps? All I know so far is that it's a hossie map.

Oooh militia time is coming!!!!! *sits in chair like a puppy that has to stay in his bench* and new model to!!
Well there's not much more left to ask for X-mas is there??

Oh, on the donation thing, I would like to contribute to LNY by paying monthly.
If someone in charge of this could PM me on the details that would be great.

Or like the church always says: "No donation, No salvation"

Donations or monthly contributions are always greatly appreciated, see this post (http://www.lanarchy.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=3556) on how you can send us money.

Have a look at that, then perhaps catch me on Xfire at somepoint :thumbs:
