I just think that Firepowered could get more players online and joining with one of the most popular maps in the entire game. I noticed whenever I'm online that these 2 servers are never more than half full. Just a suggestion.

FP actually did have a Dustbowl server, way back in our prime. The quickplay changes turned it from being full pretty much all the time to being empty enough to warrant it being removed, pretty much instantly.

 

Now, I dunno what the state of TF2 right now is, but I have a feeling bringing Dustbowl back will just end pretty similarly to how it ended before.

Is it time to revisit the idea of a rotating server? People do get tired of the same maps.

Really our only active server is hightower because everyone loves endless tdm. If only there were more maps like it.

I would approve of dustbowl but I don't kow what we are doing wrong compared to servers such as nemu's to keep it full.

I would love a rotating server. I don't know how well it would work, but I personally have gotten bored with Hightower (A very long time ago). I do love me some Dustbowl, but at ChAirborne said people tend to get tired of the same map after a period, and I like the idea of a new map on the lists.

I agree a rotating server would be fun.

Just to update you guys: We are thinking about making an A/D rotation server and will keep you in the loop on any new details!

So it looks like the button has been pushed to make an A/D rotation server I'll do my part to make it survive.

Update: We now have A/D Rotation up and running! We've also added ABUN2 behind the scenes since ABUN1 is always full and surf was dead.

 

As always, a huge thanks to @Computer for configuring these for us! smile.gif

 

As soon as we do some final configurations they will show up in the servers list and can start being used.

I think Nemu's has the unique thing where when the server has low player count, you play against a team full of engis. The Engi Fortress allows people to continue playing without the difficulty of not finding players on the other team. While a system like their Engi Fortress would be difficult to implement, it always attracts people to continue playing without a lot of players in the server.
