Default Winter 2017/18 Minus Night?
Reply With Quote


Hi everyone.

The idea of running a match of MinusMinoMeUp (Minus with only Minotaurs) has been thrown around from time to time. But since that one variation would get old fast, I was wondering if we could instead have a Minus night. For one day, the ONS server will only have Minus variations in the map list. This would also present an opportunity to put up other versions of Minus that aren't on the usual roster.

What are everyone's thought on this idea?

Sorry but MinusMinoMeUp doesn't belong on the server... You want that map, it needs its own dedicated server with that map only.

Besides, Minus is played every night.

I would be ok with this if it took the place with another version of the map on the server... As it is you can play Minus back to back for a whole night with ease.

If that were the case, I'd like to see Nightwolf go. The OVP Nexxus and it's lag ruins the map.

Hate to see this turn into another "witch hunt" to get rid of the MTMU maps. We did that already. I love MTMU maps and don't want to see another one go away forever. Leave it alone.

In the wise words of Sarge, "If you don't like a map, don't play it."

No witch hunt here. There are 6 versions of the fkn thing on the server. The omni version is never played, swap it with that one....

Also, since a witch hunt was mentioned it reminds me we have too many versions of this map on the server.

The omni version is pretty cool, too bad it never gets played. I can see why the tank versions get favored...

Maybe we should just make the omni version a mino-me-up and embrace the inevitable

I don't know if I'm counting wrong, but I only counted five.

)o(-v1a
BadgerMeUp-Beta23
TankMeUp-Nightwolf-V3
TankMeUp-Kamek-V9
TankMeUp-Randomizer-V5b

I also feel that the conversation has steered into making permanent changes to the map roster, which is not what I'm suggesting here. I'm only suggesting having a one-day roster variation to give a gimmick map some game time.

Both are valid points Termi, and if the server population were consistently higher, I would have definitely suggested putting it on a secondary server. But as is, I'd wonder how many people would take part if it's on its own server. Perhaps that idea is soured in my mind because the turnout for last summer's Assault Night was fairly low (7 people). Having never played MinoMeUp, I'm going to guess that that map will get boring after 1, 2 games at most, and that an event solely focused around it would only last an hour. There's nothing necessarily wrong with that, but I thought it would be more interesting to put it on the main server and playing it there, rather than try to get people on a different server only for the event to end quickly.

As for giving the most played map layout even more play time, I feel in general that events like these could lead to other 1-day map variations, such as getting rid of minus maps completely for a day. This would also give the community some time to warm up to more permanent roster changes (if they happen). I just chose Minus as it would give the MinoMeUp addition a more clear theme to be built around.

I have no problem with it taking over the Omni variant if people would like to keep the other maps on. It would be best to then call this event MinoMeUp night, which is also fine.


Thanks for bringing your feedback, everyone.

Wasn't there a dedicated Minus server a few years ago?

I am still puzzled why we just don't load all the maps...and let the vote decide.

I like more maps, but for variety, not for repeated versions of the same map over and over (which I know is weird, since I made a variant of Tyrant and have a variant of Nevermore in the work intended to not replace.)

Here is the issue I have with it. If I have 2 hours to play, I would prefer to not vote the variant of the same map to fill my limited time on the server.

I have this issue whenever it happens with TAL, Minus and particularly xJunkyard.

There was a dedicated Minus server a few years back. It was so popular that it became the primary server, because that's where everybody went. The regular server with the rest of the maps went dark. Given the choice to play alone or play with others, most choose playing with others.

Some didn't like this. They wanted to play other maps besides all MTMU all the time. So the popular all MTMU maps server was shut down, forcing everybody back to the main server with all the maps. I understand the logic and it's probably a good thing for the community the way things are now. Except for the part about limiting maps, I like the idea of putting all the maps on the server and let the vote count decide.

And yes, there are a few who's sole agenda is to rid the server of all MTMU maps. To them I say go FUCK YOURSELF!

Mclovin - brilliant !

yes the MTMU server was very popular, and the most played

nightwolf is a good map, if the general feeling is the nexus spoils it, then perhaps edit it out?
