Yea, no, the population did definetly not drop, was almost full (which the server almost always is when this map is played), it's ze_guranatuna or something like that, the one where you go through sorronto and rooftop and such, they are more or less solo maps too which wouldn't require that many players (like final fantasy maps are)
Basically every time this map gets selected the admins are always very hostile, an example was yesterday when there was like 2-3 CT's left camping on sorronto roof, instead of slaying (as they usually do on final fantasy maps when there is no way of winning) the admin just said "sh*t map just rtv instead", basically making the experience worse just so that the map changes. I haven't recorded or taken any screenshots of anything since I'm not sure if it's actually against the rules, I'm just asking why this is a thing (I understand why a player might be discouraging maps but when an admin does it feels like they have more of an "authority" and makes more people listen to them)
Also, lets say maybe the server WAS dying without me noticing (even though I didn't notice any sort of difference from previous maps), why would the admins say "BaD MaP lEtS cHanGe" when creating their vote instead of like "the server is dying, gotta swap maps", because I feel like this is just a case of them not liking to play on the map and will do anything to make it changed
This is my favourite map and I nominate it every time I play and I always get super upset when I've been nominating it for 2-3 hours just waiting for it to be picked and then immediatly get this from the server admins
TLDR: That's all, I would have understanding if it kills the server, but it really doesn't.
By the way I don't remember which admin did that "vote" thing but yesterday Wicked was the one who didn't slay and just said "sh*t MaP JuST RTv"
EDIT: Just wanna note that, sure, yesterday the map never got rtv'ed fully but got played, but the map after literally made the server die, it said "waiting for 10 players" for like 5 minutes and the admins just said "just wait we'll get more soon", and if they change maps when server die, then it doesn't really make sense why they wouldn't change this time
To be honest and I am just going to say what everyone thinks.
Even if the admins abused you, nobody would care. You have tormented the server to many times to gain and form of sympathy or right doing.
Most of us see it as a joke when you post something here.
Maybe you should start to reflect on your behaviour and look for a nice girl to have some fun with. Might blow away some steam (or something else ;))
