Streamlining.

Post by Spawnsy » Sat Mar 21, 2020 4:29 pm

Hiya Kentone. I'd like to start a discussion about streamlining the server please.
I'd really like to see the server text messages altered.
Having irrelevant messages about watching your back and lacking teamwork makes people switch off from it. They don't read the important stuff because they think it'll probably not be important.
I'd like to start again:
  • Enable comms: you must hear the team.
    Do not rush.
    Play as a team.
    Do not destroy/capture without permission.
    Respect team mates' lines of fire.
    Respect others' position: don't steal kills.
    Take observer before rifleman.
    Listen to the commander.
    No smoke!
    Don't block views with fire.
    Allow time to organise for counters.
Is it possible to display this as a list on command too? !r

Any thoughts on this or further ideas?

The stealing kills one seems a bit...i dunno, possessive? Maybe I'm misunderstanding it, but kill stealing is not something I've noticed happening or heard complained about; when I'm playing, I don't stop to think if someone else is lining up on the guy in front of me; I just aim and shoot. I'm not trying to 'steal' kills, I'm just servicing threats and I think that's exactly what we should be doing.

I think this and the line of fire one could be combined into just 'Be aware of your friends: don't get in their way'

Understood. The wording needs to be clearer. What I mean by it is: don't push people from their spot. He's got that window /angle/ point, find somewhere more useful to be. How best to word that?

Not sure what you can put up but spawnsys response on comms of, Don't stand in front of me you cock, fuck off, seems to work. ;)

It would be nice if we could have an MOTD that is shown to all players when they join, containing these messages. Maybe someday...
