Map rotation and server changes - Please read and provide feedback!
Nuke and Italy aren't in the rotation currently because the _se version converts the game to 5v5 and kicks everyone off of the server which is a major problem. To solve this we are going to put in Volcano's version of Nuke - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6AA7_8y0pk and are looking for Italy alternatives. We are also replacing Aztec with this one - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9okS0nkwj0
As of right now, we are having difficulty adding custom maps to the server and having the client download them. Currently, it will go to the yellow blank screen and then promptly kick you. We are working on it!
As for the map rotation outside of Nuke and Italy, there is DLC coming to GO sometime soon (no announcements on when exactly yet) but in the game files there are some maps listed under the dlc catagory. These maps are as follows: de_embassy, cs_assault, de_balkan (probably de_vostok from condition zero/counter-strike xbox), de_vertigo (probably the same as the one from 1.6!), ar_monastery, de_depot, and de_alleyway. Once these are released they will be put in the rotation ASAP.
As of right now we have all talk on while alive and seperated from the dead. This settign is going to stay. It provides a more friendly and community like environment within the server and IMHO makes the game more fun. This is a casual server, not a cal-o training server. If you want to talk strats, please use your team chat or just say it out loud, who cares.
Our Arms Race server is generally empty, would you guys/girls prefer another casual server because the main one is usually full? We had a competitive before and it was always empty which is why we switched over. It would be identical to the main one except they would be named #1 and #2.
Generally on the first round of the map switch, we like to use Zeus and knife only. Until we have a mod that allows this, this is not a rule, but more of a fun guidline within the community. You will not be kicked for using a pistol, but be warned name calling will be had. If you do get kicked or banned for using a pistol, please message me on Reddit (eatsox117) and let me know who banned you. Adrenaline and I have talked to admins and they should not be kicking you for this reason anymore.
Finally, if the majority want a map added or have any feedback for us reguarding the server, please reply here.
Thanks from your friendly neighborhood Spiderman,
