Really I'm good with just leaving them all on and vetoing maps that will make people leave or forcing mid-round if people aren't having fun. Leave it up to the players to decide what they like, but that also means you're responsible for communicating your opinions.

If you want some tips on the popular maps, find me on ONS between rounds and we can jump over. Its been several months since I've played, but I'll see what I can remember.

That offer goes for anybody else who hasn't played AS much. The more people that know about how the maps work, the less chance of teams getting steamrolled when the vets get on.

The only problem I would have with that is by the time we veto the map, people will be gone already. It does not take long to figure out that a certain map will not produce much action in the way of shooting someone with a weapon. And those who do not play AS much would not know what maps to vote. Why go through all that when certain maps can simply be made unavailable to vote in the first place? Just think it'll be easier.

Well I'm certainly not going to pare the list down to a whopping 8 maps. I'll remove all the racing maps and anything that's incredibly slow or non-standard, and leave the rest up to people. And by veto I mean force a mapchange to the second or third place map if the winning votes are for something dumb or has just been played. There's a lot more to AS than shooting people with guns, so just leaving those in would be unfaithful.

I agree - I don't think we need to go mental on limiting the list, but we should get rid of anything that might cause people to bail and still veto the vote if need.

For example, kill all the race maps but leave Confexia and TotalRecall in case the majority wants to play

I just spent a couple of hours going through some maps on the server. As long as the race maps are gone, I'm good. Other than that, today I just realized how big the list of non-race and non-shitty maps is. Here are just some I can confirm I would like to see on the server that evening:

Temple of Boom
Thunderstorm
Fortress (both versions)
Ionification
Protocore
Acanta
Ankara
Acsension
Aswan
Ballx
Outback
Chaos
chocolateFactory
Chrozormines
Do)o(msDay
Glacier
Magma
Osaka
Robotfactory
The Door
Dria
Thief
TarydiumMine
Junkyard
Vindication
Retrieval
Aarjskaw
Jumpship
Thrust
Canyon
Calypso
Damnation
Guardia

And I'm not finished yet (taking a break). This is a big list that would take hours to go through. Some of these maps have terrible bot support, but the point of this event is to have a populated server so I'm not worried as long as we have 6+ live people in. Don't think that will be a problem.

I just got the message about this through Steam just now and I'll be there. I'm guessing I'll be okay to play using the Unreal Anthology version of UT2004 right?

Okay, so everybody has had a week to chime in and Saturday 7pm Eastern is still the winner. I will plan to be on Friday as well, but Saturday is the official night. Looks like Rupert is weeding out the map selection somewhat, so we should be good to go.

Only question at this point is: how to get the word out? I assume most of the folks here on the forums have seen it. I wouldn't know how to get in contact with other players, except some kind of message on the ONS server, perhaps. Megaman mentioned a Steam message? Not sure who/how/what is responsible for that, but probably a good idea as well.

I would say a last minute reminder would be in order as well.

Sounds good to me, but I will defer to the )o(s on what advertising is OK.

I'll probably be on Friday too if there's enough people to kick the bots. I haven't touched the server map list yet, but I'll get around to it before then.

I made a Steam event in our group which pops up as soon as I make it (or whenever you next log on) as well as shortly before it occurs. Glad it got at least one person to take notice.

Go for it, just not overboard.

I'll see if I can get it to be one of the rotating messages over there.

I will be on Friday as well. Also I will be on earlier than 7oclock Sat. I had some issues lately with my rig so I didn't get the chance to go through some more maps. From time to time I will be on the server.

Don't forget AS this weekend! Saturday at 7pm eastern.

I think several of us will be on Friday as well, so stop by "if ONS is full"

I'll just redirect ONS traffic to AS with super admin powers, I doubt anybody'd notice if I spawned some ion tanks.

I'll try to cull through the map list at work tomorrow to prepare.
