When you play..

Post by LordDz » Sat Oct 26, 2013 10:08 pm

Just some small questions here.
when you guys play, how many do you usually play with? 2-4, 6-8, 10-256?
And when you play, do you just join a server, or do you tend to get a group of people together, then host/join a server with them?

Is not currently possible to host a server, unless you had one working before the SteamPipe update.

The number of players that usually plays are random. Is easier to see five players on a server, although is common eight (the maximum by default). Years ago, when OC was the 1.34 version, I played on a server that had 32 players. It was pure chaos and fun.

Fankserver, was that? Perhaps I've gotten that mixed up with the 1.35 era, because I remember that deafening chaos of OICW gunshots on oc_starship_troopers in the latter.
Will probably never forget what that was like. :v

Anyway, I hardly ever play on public servers, so my pattern isn't at all representative of that of most players.
Apparently, Valve can't make games beyond the number 2.
I think the only time we'll get a Source SDK code update is when it starts having purchasable hats integrated, i.e. hatconomy.

Please do not make assumptions you are not knowledgeable enough to make - that just backfires on yourself.

I'm not sure, because it was the last moments of 1.34 (when I appeared here) and the beginning of 1.35. It could be (although I think that the old official server had 32 slots during some time).

Also lol, you have three different FPS HUD elements at your screen, and no one gives the same :P

The official server by now has 64 slots at max, most are reserved slots and for special use, so you usually only see 8 or up to around 14 slots if there are special people join (it's hard to change the max slots midgame, but opening up slots midgame is easy as heck :P)

Maybe someday, when we will on Steam, VS maps like Seamus will be played with a decent number of players.
