I don't think this needs any explanation...

It is about our Wolfenstein Enemy Territory server. The once so full and active server we used to have is gone.
We are not alone in this one, since there are about 5 active servers left in the whole game.
BUT, I think we can take another shot and honestly have a chance to suceed if many of our loyal clan members participate.

I want to suggest a full restart of the server. We will not delete the XP since we have some loyal players already.
But we should make some changes:
  • Delete/add maps in mapvote cycle; only add populair maps untill we have a stable visitor count;
  • Change the bot amount to 18; nowadays we can take this reduced, since there are less servers;
  • Change the servername to fit our goals: ~[Q]LOWDOWNLOAD.REALPLAYERS.XPSAVE[QuarkClan.com] or ~[Q]LOWDOWNLOAD.REALPLAYERS.XPSAVE[QuarkClan.com](I am aware the last part won't fit, but it fits on Trackbase and Gametracker;
  • Install SiLent 0.9.0;
  • Last but not least, one that made a change when we also restarted our popularity: PLAY OR STAY, if you play you are in-game. If you are not you stay in-game on spectator. This puts us up in the browser, ranglists, and let's real players stay more easier.
I hope you guys also want this. And if so, I hope we can start this Sunday!
I don't have the possibility to this myself so I hope @jCuber or @Mr.V or @jj200 can do this.

LETS DO THIS.

http://et.trackbase.net/maplist/ For the most populair maps;
Mapvotecycle either goes automaticly by the maps inside the server, if not mapvotecycle.cfg and gametype 6
Omnibot should work, since many run on the new SiLenT version.
/bot maxbots 18 in I think omnibot.cfg or server.cfg or whatever runs the game.

Sent ya a pm.

Better later than never.

BUT i agree with you mahla. For about 1 year ago i was active in the Q mw3 and et servers. But now i lost interest in et. I play mw3 in these days but now the Q mw3 servers are down for a while and don't know when will be online again.

We can try to make the bg server active again. Honestly i want quarkclan to shine again like in the good old days BUT can we do it?
I hope these changes will work. :)



Myabe we should organize events too? That should help to rise up a bit the activity around the et servers?! :lol:

It's too late, but that's why we gave other people acces to the dedicated and ET server files.
I've been and am still following my study / working as an law enforcement officer.
This means I either study a lot when I am at the academy. But when I work I run in irregular shifts.

I just don't have the amount of time to vulunteer into this game/community. But try to do my best.
Thankfully we have others who did a great job and took over my position as server manager.

Let's see how this ends :)

Great would be if we can have IP something like bg.quarkclan.com:27960 or something like that. Easer to remeber easier to join the server.
And if we wanna start with new silent mod restart xp would be okey.
