as you all probably know, I deliberately made the Classic Mode maplist only Vanilla and free maps in an effort to let as many players join as possible.
at some point here, i think we need to get input on what maps should be added from the expansion packs.
Since there are 20 maps to choose from, i guess we could make a poll with the 20 options, and allow say 5 votes per person, take the top 5, 6 or 8 winners and add them?

If anyone has any other ideas on how to gather the opinions from our players, post up!
We also need to consider maybe voting some maps off the list - the least favorites.

 :cheers:

ZJ,  your totally reading my mind.  There are a few maps I totally miss, 
1.) sunken dragon(large conquet)
2.)operation whiteout(large conquest)
3.) Pearl Market(large conquest)
4.) Caspian Boarder (large conquest)
5.) Operation Firestorm( large conquest)   
6.) Replace locker with Metro( large conquest)

I know Hitmans vote: 
1.) locker (large conquest)
2.) locker (large conquest)
3.) locker (large conquest)
4.) locker (large conquest)
5.) locker (large conquest)

and replace locker w/  (large conquest)
  :flipoff:

P.S. Here is a link that lists the maps with a small image.

yeah, this post was to find out how to get the votes, not for the votes themselves, but ok!

a poll with all 20 options, perhaps?

also, last time we discussed the sizes, conquest small seemed a better fit, no?

Conquest Small is designed for max 32 players, while
Conquest Large is designed for min 32 players.

I mean, i guess, but imagine our average player counts on the giant maps...

I miss all of those maps as well; however, I do believe that classic mode (basic version maps) was a major role in bringing new players to the server that do not have Premium. I can only account for about 15 to 18 percent of my past and current friends that did not have the Premium version.

That being said, if you all feel comfortable moving forward with adding some of these maps, I would vote yes even though we may lose some players.

I can keep recruiting players that can accommodate the change.

lol Locker, Locker, Locker, Locker lol

yes, of course.
the thinking was build up a good player base, then as we get tired of the maps, gradually bring in more by some sort of vote, hopefully we don't lose too many non-premium players, but at this point, you'd think most have it?

LOCKER

LOL ok I think as our player base grows that most will have that premium option... however until or unless our player base grows to the point of expansion I think we should stay with small conquest for a while longer... to big of map with to few of players could run them off... but i'm up for some new choices to choose from and metro is as popular as locker.

also we had about 6 players the other night and played some dm maps..... in the middle of a rotation throwing one in here or there wouldn't hurt for some change... just some thought on that(it was fun to hope off regular for a fun dm map or two)

Forgive my ignorance on how the server settings and options are, but can you add different game modes while still keeping it in classic?  Like rush, gun master, and or team death match?

Dont we have 1 premium map in our rotation? That is why NEO couldn't join us. So, if we change the map list, the people that have been playing wont be affected. Right?

lately there have been maps added for late night entertainment, then removed.
kinda like yesterday, we added firestorm just to let those guys get the Gol, then it was removed, which allows the non premium players like Neo.

alright, spent some time on this mode thing.

apparently if we add rush, gun master or TDM, we stay CLASSIC, but drop to 20 slots, even though we really have 32.
in Normal, Hardcore or Custom, it allows 32 players of those game modes.

i don't know... :banghead:

at this point, here's what I get out of it.

If we want to integrate Rush, TDM or Gun Master modes, and stay Classic Preset, we will only have a 20 slot server.

Or we add expansion pack maps in Conquest, and stay a Classic 32 slot server.

otherwise we're talking going to Normal, Hardcore, or Custom Preset.
