Excessive Arty / Mortar

Post by obituary on Wed May 29, 2013 11:47 am

Lately I have been coming on the server under fake names and watching everything.

I am noticing that since I restored the original server settings a couple weeks ago, when we were having problems with disconnections and moving the servers from port to port, that once again we have too much of these weapons and people are leaving the server. Or everyone stacks one team to get away from the mortars on the other team.

So we end up with a stacking problem, where we have 12 people on one team fighting 6 omnibots and one brave human on the other team. The loser team cannot walk twenty feet out of spawn without getting pounded by mortars and artillery.

It is like this every map.

I was hoping when I brought these weapon settings back that maybe (just maybe) it would be fun to have the super mortars and the arty at full strength. But to my disappointment we have re-created the exact same problem we had before, where the server becomes literally unplayable.

So my bad. I should not have brought these weapons back. It completely distorts the server and I don't even want to play on it.

Anyway, I am going to get rid of the the arty completely this time. Setting it to zero. That will solve the problem for good, and I won't have to see people fighting over limited arty.

When I lowered it by half last year, I saw people accusing each other of "stealing the arty" or "wasting it" by not blasting the spawn all day at every opportunity. Limiting the arty makes our admins hog it and threaten players who try to use it instead of letting them have it.

There won't be any arty to fight over. Problem solved.

With the arty gone, the low-skill players who hide, and poke their head out to fire arty across the map and then hide again, will have to use some other weapon.

The mortar will be slowed to the normal jaymod mortar firing rate, and the ammo reduced.

Thanks for your understanding.

I know there are people that just love arty, but you're right. Maps were unplayable recently, but mostly due to mortar. Good it's been lowered a bit.

No problems here. I have noticed the "pounding" on choke points.

It will obviously be changing the way objectives are guarded or gone after. Teams will have to change their style of play.

I played a round of Pirates before hitting the rack and really didn't miss the arty at all. Allies still got owned but at least they had a fighting chance. Teams were pretty even in numbers. Still a hard map for allies. Still have the idiot bot tossing out the airstrike markers, or was it a live being?

Gee maybe we chased them all off with the non-stop arty spam...

If people want to fire arty against a bunch of bots all day they can go to Bad Santa, I have left the arty and mortar on there.

I knew you would be the main person to get pissed off when I took off the arty.

And I was on Beginner around 11PM your time and there was 12 people on the server and teams looked better than they have for a week.

There's more people now than I saw in last few days. I think they didn't like the mortar/arty spam after all. Smile

I'm guilty of spawn arty whoring, but then again, I usually pick the weakest team to join, sometimes being the only human there against multiple human enemies.

I think the current server settings are good, at least for now! Wink
