New year UT plans?

Post by Pileyrei » Mon Dec 18, 2017 7:30 am

Hi all

I haven't played for months. Family and work commitments have really kept me busy but even so I haven't had the "bug" to want to play.

Popped on last night and had a few games. Horrible feeling in that I just didn't really enjoy it. :(

Our servers are empty and another one I jumped on last night was awful (laggy, constant smack talk, generally unpleasant) despite having lots of players.

I miss the TrufF and MPUK days where servers were busy and often full with great, fun players.
There were funnel servers, Face only, DM, CTF, Sniper, Insta.....and the players came!

:snipe: :shock: :insta:

Good times.

I still need to get my access to this website properly sorted so that I can make some cosmetic improvements, plus add a few other features.

Not sure when the two server subscriptions run out (think April 2018) but given their current status I don't think I'll be renewing them.

So I'd like to hear from you guys now.

Do you still play much?
Where do you play?
Any suggestions for our servers and this forum in the new year?

Been moving house n generally trying to sort life out...a work in progress I think they call it! So not been on so much...had some good games on our server as ping is good and generally little lag..it's just finding other players there that is a rarity! Silly really..the Russian Deck 16 server gets very busy but a) Many dickheads play there and b) laggy as hell c) no admin to speak of. Many of the decent players are European so would have a much better gaming experience on our servers ...but they still persist with the Russian server....frustrating!

Piley,

I hear your frustration. Are you coming to the meet in Birmingham on Saturday? We can discuss it over a pint and It beats TeamSpeak.

if you want to add another fun gametype. try Hollywars. However this mod doesn't work well with UTPure7E or 7G. it will work perfect with the 7C. if new net work with 7g you should disable UT Pure. or use pure switcher. to diseable it when is necessary. Medor could help you for this. he have help me when i was an admin server.

I just played yesterday some rounds of Fragball.
It's a fun game mode and fits perfectly together with Burger-CTF.

I play mostly offline because I test some weapon combinations. I love to come online and frag some people.
Sometimes I play MH ...but most of the other server are not really thrilling.
So... what I want to say is, Your server is the only one I visit regularly.

You just need to advertise your server more. All the other populated server have a hardcore fan base of veterans or gathered fans. Nowadays it's not easy to gather players, the stuck mostly with their known home base and don't want to try new stuff. Sad but true, most UT players are old farts. :mrgreen:
