    Poll will close by this Wednesday as we need responses ASAP.

    If you vote for Mixedcore please specify what settings you would like. If the majority votes for Mixedcore then another vote will be held with the listed settings.
    Softcore and Hardcore are for the Full settings not all but one.

    Please keep it on topic too otherwise your post will be deleted.

    erm..... we cant do that..


    It would probably get our server banned by EA.
    Server admins are not allowed to restrict the use of weapons, unlocks or classes for ranked servers.



    Bad idea anyhow.



    Use settings that are popular out there atm in the community. (See other thread)

    I agree with jimmy, except if we are doing GA rules, we if tk is on in the ladder, than we should practice with it on (the whole point of having the same settings). if we dont then I agree with Cru, do what is popular, i quite like how our server is now.

    I picked mixedcore, as I currently like our current server rules. I feel that hardcore tends to take too much from the gaming experience than adding it. While adding realism, it takes away balance.

    Now, please keep in mind that primarily, we want to make settings that will help populate the server. Its all well and good to say YES, WE LOVE HARD CORE, and for the sake of making the server settings hardcore to suit ourselves doesn't quite fit in with what the majority of the public gaming comunity wants. I for one originally voted for hardcore with excitement, but after monitoring the Hardcore servers over the last 2 days, the 64 player servers don't fair well at all. I have changed my vote to ( I shudder at this ) softcore Sad .
    Please kepp in mind that we pay for a 64 player server paid at $149/slot per month, and are allready paid up to 1/04/2012 so we cant change that until then.So knowing the cost of the server,we been struggling to make even half of that 64 player slot full in recent times.
    My proposal is we go to full softcore settings for awhile to build up a loyal customer base, then slowly introduce new changes to the server, ever so gradually.
    If you are hell bent on hardcore, by all means play on a hardcore server that is all ready established, which isn't many, but I honestly have no probs with that.
    Whatever happens from here, the council will honour what is voted by our members, and your opinions are valued here and I do encourage everyone to have their say.
    When people do server settings, they are filtering for mostly normal games.
    i'm betting everything thast if we changed to full soft core, and people filtered for servers and we didnt change the server name at all, it would get full as fast as we used to get it filled when the server was first up.
    Anyways, food for thought.

    For whatever weight my non-member opinion has, I like it as it is. Some of the softcore settings make the gaming more fun, and things like a 60% health limit might keep the ultra-noobs out (if that's what you want).
    I voted mixedcore. Is there any way to implement ladder settings during training events and have softcore or combo settings for general play?

    I'm not too concerned, although I'm leaning more towards softcore but with 60% health. Pretty much everything else I can live with, insta-spawn vehicles is nice though.

    100% yes. Can be done with a simple copy, paste and restart. To change back to pub, just repeat with pub vars.

    Also +1 Holy, its not just about us. Its a public server for the community not private. We all like playing 64 metro with 64 players etc etc so if we fill the server then we have more people too play with.

    if we do have hardcore what are peoples thoughts on having tk turned off.
    its a minor change so i dont think it would count as mixedcore

    ps; bare in mind hc health IS 60% if we choose hc.

    mixed core

    HC Health
    No 3d spotting
    No crosshairs
    No health regen (vehicle regen is ok)
    TK off to appease the plebs that play on our server/negate effects of griefers
    HUD on

    to be honest i liked the server the way it was before all this GA ladder settings were implemented
    if you're serious about implemnting softcore health (100%) i suggest you look at our server traffic over the last week. It has tanked and getting worse.
