    Sorry for not replying to everyone individually yet. We are still discussing this internally. For now the only thing that has been implemented was Tiger's/Heyfumi's idea, which was to reduce (and i did it significantly) the minimum number of players required to play hard maps. And also note that this can be temporary only. If the results are bad, we go back to the old minimum number of players. I will reply to people individually sooner or later.

    It's weird, because these commands have the following values right now: // Player will be protected from infection when spawning into the game late. // Default: "1" zr_spawnprotect "0" // Time from the start of the round to allow ZSpawn. [Dependency: zr_zspawn_timelimit] // Default: "120.0" zr_zspawn_timelimit_time "0.0" // Spawn player on the zombie team AFTER the timelimit is up. ['-1' = Block ZSpawn | '0' = Spawn as human | '1' = Spawn as zombie | Dependency: zr_zspawn_timelimit] // Default: "1" zr_zspawn_timelimit_zombie "1" I tried to change the 2nd one to 0.1, maybe 0.0 it's not accepted, i don't know...

    I believe that was fixed already, so is it still a thing?

    There are good points called here. MY point of view is the same as Shy Limonada's one. If we disable the cooldown between laser/skill maps, it's just gonna be a laser party during hours and then it will happen the same as usual, the population will decline as soon as the map switches to a "normal" one. So basically we would be just delaying the server's death. I mean, having 40-65-40-65-40-65 population is still the same (if not better) than 65-65-65-65-20-25-30-40, because that's what gonna happen if you waste all the laser maps in a row. So which maths are better? And i can see what would come next... "Batata decrease the cooldown of laser maps!!!". And you know what's the problem of this? We are not thinking about players who don't like/give a shit about lasers. If we do those decisions, we are only thinking about players that enjoy dodging lasers/showing their pro skills (that only come for the last stage btw), and not in the regulars that would play any map. And what i see from all of this is that people that want to play 100 laser maps in a row are just being selfish. I don't see nemesis players coming to me and saying "Batata, remove the shared cooldown between nemesis maps", for example. But i see laser players doing it, interesting. They are so selfish and addicted that they can't wait 1 f*cking map to nominate another map on which they can take a c00l screenshot. Just picking an example: It might be boring for you, but it might be an easy map for newbies to start Zombie Escape, for example. People like winning after all. And in laser maps most don't win, which makes them mad and leave the server. So at the end you're just another typical guy that doesn't give a shit about the server and only wants to play his favourite maps. And this is not even an opinion or a matter of ego, it's a fact. You wrote that. You're not thinking about people that might actually enjoy those kind of maps, only about yourself. My goal, as a manager, is to make the server full even in maps that are normally called "shit". It's easy to have full players on FF maps, every server can do it. So the argument that FF maps will bring players, oh, it's goddamn right. But every server will see their population increase if you reach one of the last stages on those maps. It's not the miracle solution. The hard part is to make the server full on different maps. So if you have suggestions for that, you can go ahead, i'll be listenning. But presenting to me the solution to play only laser/skill maps is ridiculous. Ridiculous because it's selfish, to start with. And those maps kinda attract the players that we don't exactly define as the perfect players for the server: people that only come for last stage and then leave and, specially, toxic players. And i also want to add diversity to the maps that are being played in the server. It keeps both the players and admins motivated to play in the server. I mean, who likes eating the same food or listenning to the same songs everyday? ZE is the same. So theorically, my solution is good, because it takes in consideration the different tastes of maps that players might have and not just thinking about 1 specific group of players. I could be writing more, but that's all i have to say for now... I just remembered now, but this decision of putting shared cooldowns is based on evidences. It's not just "Batata wants, Batata does it". No. It's based on facts (that playing stalker and then gris, for example, the populations drops hard).

    So, first of all, this is the global rule: "Use of hyperscroll will result in a kick. If you join the server and keep using it, it will result in a ban of 1 day and then 1 week and then 1 month if it's repetitive." Even though you're not using pure hyperscroll, you still get triggered by the bhop plugin we have many times. When an admin is in the server, he cannot know if you're using a special mouse or you're indeed using hyperscroll, so the statistics that are showed up in the bhop plugin is the only information they have, so the kick/ban were justified taking that into consideration. But now that we know you are using "just" a mouse, i leave you 2 options. 1) You keep using your mouse, admins don't ban you, but you will be 100% triggered by the bhop plugin, which is going to limit your bhop everytime (you will not be able to bhop anymore). 2) You switch your mouse or adapt it, so you don't be triggered by the plugin anymore. This would be the best solution for you. Thanks for the report.

    Learn how to read? The duration of the bans takes in count all the bad actions from the player, we don't ban selectively for each reason. I let the topic opened, so the "victim" could present his arguments or apologize, but you just buried yourself even more. Now topic closed as you wanted. Here's a gift: extended the ban to 1 month.

    Important to note that those maps don't have a global shared cooldown. They cannot just be nominated one after another. The goal of this is to balance the maps that are being played, so everyone gets satisfied, the people who have skills and those who lack them and prefer to play easier maps.
  15. Batata

    Skill maps like gris, grau, castlevania, etc, after a laser map are mostely used as an escape route to keep the map fags satisfied. But the problem is that by the time you beat (or not beat) those maps, the server already lost the brave warriors that enjoy defending/knifing zombies, so in a skill-non-skill map switch, the population of the server drops a lot, just like in this example:

    Your list of bans (not to mention your alternative accounts, 1 of the bans even says that you avoided the ban) : Showing that you are a sweet person: That also states that you don't like NiDE. So if you don't like it, i can always extend your ban to permaban if you want. Not doing shit on other maps - Only needed to watch the demo closest to frozen temple to exemplify the typical useless garbage player that you are: https://demos.nide.gg/css_ze/auto-20200606-212640-ze_ffvii_mako_reactor_v6_b08.dem

    Inflating, spamming soundboard, not doing shit on any map, insulting players/admins, trolling in many ways, avoiding bans. Concluding, a toxic player. Not necessarily on that map, but on all the maps globally. So i can gladly let you pick one of those reasons, i don't want to let the customer of my ban mad. And to make it clear, the ban wasn't because i died, i was already talking in the admin chat to other admins to spec you way before. When they confirmed you weren't doing shit, i banned you when i could, which means at the end of the round, when i died, so this report wouldn't rely on another admin (kind of a protection to other admins that would ban you) This is not an invented rule, it's written in the admin guidelines, any admin could have banned you for that: And my favourite: Just in case you didn't understand: When you get inside the temple, you add HP to the boss. From the moment you are not shooting the boss, you're teamkilling indirectly, because the boss will die slower, giving him time to kill more humans. And i don't even need to go that far. Imagine if all the humans would knife out or not shoot in bossfights? Ok, i guess you understood. And this is not the first time you do this of course, that's why 1 week ban :') And don't call Boss or Anwar to make a judgement here. The last word is always mine. It takes a lot for me to do it, but if i want you out of the server, you can consider it done. So try to change your kiddo attitude, because if you keep the way you're playing the game, you will soon end like Rinnegan Sora (i will let you check sourcebans to see what happened to him).

    I mean, if the human is everywhere except in the last house/roof, the slay is the only option, because he is just delaying, since he's not even at the end of the map. But if the human(s) are at the end, just let the round go on, since it's still possible for humans to win
  22. The winners have been rewarded! Unfortunately, we didn't beat last stage of ze_kitchen, but it was a good try, gg!

    It's possible bruh! People don't like to wait some seconds these days...

    If you think maturity, connection time, map knowledge and common sense are not important for being an admin, then you don't know anything about being an admin. Wanting to help the community is not enough if you don't know how to help. Automatically rejected.
  25. Batata

    Well, if the player is in the last island, everything is possible. The slay is understandable, but even though the chances of winning are small, it's possible to win.
