Rotation changes!

Post by OakTribes » Mon Apr 13, 2015 11:34 am

This thread is so that people can suggest which maps they would like to see added or removed from rotation.
For the moment, I've done away with the rotation 1/rotation 2 switcharound. The current rotation seems to have struck a good balance and to make any drastic changes would be to invite a lot of unnecessary complaints :p However, I am still open to tweaking it.

MP-REV-Tangent
MP-Tropics
MP-REV-Mayata
MP-REV-Raindance
MP-REV-Impact
MP-REV-Highlands
MP-BEML4-Frontline
MP-REV-CanyonCrusade
MP-REV-Riven
MP-Isle
MP-REV-FeignedBeliefs


Try to keep your responses brief, always include answers to these questions, and keep on topic! This is not a discussion thread for the new maps ;)

1.) Which maps would you like to see added?

2.) Which maps would you like to see removed?


(Optional)

3.) Which maps currently in rotation do you NOT want removed?

4.) Which maps NOT currently in rotation do you NOT want added?


An example can be seen below.

1.) Which maps would you like to see added?
BEML8-Tangent. It's an old favourite and I think most people enjoy playing this map.

2.) Which maps would you like to see removed?
Faith. I just think this map is too small and I'm not a fan of the design and terrain.
Tropics. Though I like it, it feels very overplayed. Maybe if it was removed it could be added again later.

3.) Which maps currently in rotation do you NOT want removed?
Bloodvelt and Highlands. Both awesome maps!

4.) Which maps NOT currently in rotation do you NOT want added?
Fort. We tried adding Fort to the rotation a while ago and people didn't react very well to it.

1) Want to add
Personally not the biggest fan of Tangent but it is a good candidate to replace some of the current ones so I'll vote for that.
(I also miss X2-Erosion but I think that one had the weird Netcamera4.u thingy so I guess that one is not an option :?: but if not then I vote for that)

2) Want to remove
Impact, Tropics

3) Do not want removed
Bloodveldt, Raindance.

4) Do not want added
Folly
General of cheating.
Admiral of destruction.
Marshall of corruption.

BEML8-Tangent has been added to the rotation.
I have not removed any maps as of yet but I am considering removing Faith and/or Impact.

Thanks to those who have contributed with their opinions, but if you are reading this and have not posted, or you disagree with adding Tangent, LET YOUR OPINION BE KNOWN.

1.) Which maps would you like to see added?

Aether, Rev - CC, REV - RainDance, Frontline, Foregone, Paralax - X2, REV - Plague it's nice for troc now

2.) Which maps would you like to see removed?

Isle, Cerulean

3.) Which maps currently in rotation do you NOT want removed?

Firstwave lol, Temerity, RD, FrontLine

4.) Which maps NOT currently in rotation do you NOT want added?

Sparidian, Cavern

My own thoughts

umm could we do a rotation that doesn't run for an even hour amount? like instead of 10 maps do like 9 or 11 or 12 maybe 8 so that the same maps don't all ways play at the same time every day but are offset by 20 mins to just I dunno give the illusion of variety to individual players.

lastly I would like to reiterate Raz's idea of the rotation, I don't think it was entirely understood the first go around (I could just as easily be wrong)

Rotation 1:
MP-REV-FirstWave
MP-REV-Tangent
MP-Tropics
MP-REV-Desolate
MP-REV-Mayata
MP-BEML6-Folly
MP-REV-Tourettes
MP-REV-Temerity
MP-Isle
MP-REV-FeignedBeliefs

Emmy (insert favorite map)

MP-REV-FirstWave
MP-REV-Tangent
MP-Tropics
MP-REV-Desolate
MP-REV-Mayata
MP-BEML6-Folly
MP-REV-Tourettes
MP-REV-Temerity
MP-Isle
MP-REV-FeignedBeliefs

Cronox (insert classic/controversial map)

MP-REV-FirstWave
MP-REV-Tangent
MP-Tropics
MP-REV-Desolate
MP-REV-Mayata
MP-BEML6-Folly
MP-REV-Tourettes
MP-REV-Temerity
MP-Isle
MP-REV-FeignedBeliefs

Foregone (insert troc friendly map)

and either go on to fit in all the maps people like to play occasionally, or just quit there. This rotation would give the feel that a fresh new (different) map where voted in or was just switched to and would also indicate the end/beginning of a rotation but I think this would also give the illusion of "variety" to the rotation.

I dunno delete my post edit it to shorten it whatever, but I think we need to start thinking about how the servers are "managed" without the presence of an admin, and from what I've seen without players lol. I've heard whispers of "bad rotation" again and noticed a spike in the attendance of the retail server

I wish errosion had been mentioned befor the REV pack I could have fixed the "netcamera4" . Aeoian would also have been a nice one to tweak just a little in the rev.

sorry oak...I know it's long

So much this, I play at mostly the same times and generally always start with the exact same one as the day before.

Due to personal issues, I have been unable to attend to Tribes Vengeance at all past week.

I will change the current rotation to the second one as a starters, but I agree we need to start thinking to improve the current situation.

I just wish people would voice their thoughts in here instead of crying inside the server, where I can't always pick it up.

Tbh I was hoping Oak would follow up on this more closely than me but apperantly not lol

Allright so I have changed the rotation to the following, I tried to keep in mind most comments, etc. Atleast... Those that were posted here and those that I picked up in the server.

Current rotation:

MP-REV-Tangent
MP-Tropics
MP-REV-Mayata
MP-REV-Mite
MP-REV-Raindance
MP-REV-Impact
MP-REV-Highlands
MP-BEML5-Miasma
MP-BEML4-Frontline
MP-REV-CanyonCrusade
MP-REV-Riven

Hope this keeps things cool until I can spend more time in this. (Should only take a day or so hopefully...)

My bad, I have been insanely busy this week (and will continue to be until next Monday) I don't even have time to read these thread replies thoroughly. I'll be back next week!

Alright, here's an update :)

Rasputien's rotation idea is a good one, and I like it. However there are some technical aspects to implementing such a thing that would not make it exactly as you described.
For one thing, it is difficult to get repeating maps into a rotation, and also it would result in either a very small rotation or a troublingly massive total amount of maps.
HighDive came up with the idea of having a base rotation with one extra map that is added/changed every day or so.
However I will be more available in the daytime in the next week or so, so I can change it in game more often.

In brief, we will stick with Rotation 1 and 2 for the time being, I will ask people in game too about how they feel and make any changes accordingly :D

Keelei hasn't got past letter F.

I would like to see Impact removed or at least swapped, so we could play Rd and Hl in a row.
