Toks we used to password protect the pvp when I first started pushing it, as some peeps were concerned about the pubbies, but it takes 24 people to fill the server, as we would fill some of the missing spaces with stupid bots, so we gradully opened it up and all our co op regulars used to pitch up, so those concerns didnt happen,

we also used local chat for ingame and discord for insults, made life simpler, we did it for awhile so any questions I would be happy to fill you in on how its set up.

it did fade away and became less popular and I eventually stopped pushing it and we stopped flipping the server, but we need someone with your drive and energy to organise it and push it, I know a few would love this.

His Darkness says he want to test his new pvp theater a bit before going public, but I have checked and all the supporting server files we created are still there and ok and ready to switch when he is done.

Taran's point is very important. It takes a lot of "banging on about it" to get the interest and attendance up. All the regulars and all the members need reminding all the time. Especially in the week running up to the event. Someone has to create a buzz about it and keep that buzz going. It can be quite exhausting. A keybind would be most helpful. The MOTD could have a line promoting it too.
We found it lasted for a while until it became difficult to create the same buzz because the novelty had worn off. Once a fortnight may be a good regularity to help combat this.
It makes me feel quite warm and fuzzy to know that Insurgency is still thriving.

I'm aware of the effort and organisation that goes into it.

My hope is that if it happens on a regular basis at the same time on the same day then most players will be aware of when it happens. This should make it easier to accomplish without a server lock.

Plus, this may be fun for people who exclusively play coop.

A question:
Do we have the option of creating polls?

If we do, then, in theory, we may not worry about popularity of pvp hours for a specified time and day of the week, cause we'll know from the polls how much are people up for it.

If there are more than 20 people up for it, things should be good. Also we could specify the exact time and day when the switch will happen, in this hypothetical poll..


Edit: I mean polls as in ingame server..

Tokai - for me it's perfect when you organise and spread information about pvp.

I am looking foward to it =)

I'm definitely down for some on-server pvp! And to what was said before, that people might loose interest if weekly pvp becomes too "ordinary" and we won't be able to fill enough slots, then it might be a viable option to only do it once a month or so? really depends on the amount of participation.

Also, I like Jubilant's idea of creating a poll to see when the most amount of people would be willing to join. However, that might be a problem if you do the polls in-game, since then it won't be clear when the polls will exactly be, and some people might find it difficult to coordinate with others. Maybe an online poll would be a better solution, where we choose a date a few days in advance, so that people can adjust their time schedules. :blah:

managed to get the new weapons on pvp last night but very small turn out, and changed back to coop after a couple of hours.

but since the ip change coop has been pretty dead as well.

this seems to be the way with pvp, peeps loose interest quickly.
