Hey guys, just a few thoughts, as Junco made me aware of this thread.
Is it possible to combine those two? Having a vote (starting with "4" or, the F-keys) would imho go a long way for a more interactive playing experience. The maprotation could kick in if the vote fails.
Just out of curiosity, do you set a map-rotation and manually change it from time to time, or does the maprating effect the rotation automatically? The latter (if possible) would be a good choice in my opinion.
I'd also recommend sticking to basic, popular maps on the rotation (pl, plr, cp, att/def), basically meaning little to no maps in ctf-mode, or "special cases" like Doomsday.
Get lost of that bloody need for a spray permit!
Has been one of two reasons why it took me quite long to decide to register on SpA. Go for Golden Gibus-sprays everwhere.
Other than that I'd say keep 'em for reserved slots. Class limits are there for a reason, so I don't think it's a good choice to circumvent 'em. Maybe a voted "class-kick" for douchebags blocking slots might be nice... Or maybe just to kick Junco out of the pyro-class, if he is destroying my beloved mini-sentries all the time...
I'd say they are fine as they are (both mvp & the medic-thingy). Especially mvp has a motivational character in my opinion.
CritVote would be nice (random-crits are plain annoying imho), yet haven't seen them EVER voted off on servers with such a vote. In my opinion it's the players that make this plugin useless.
Personally I'd like the instant-building thingy they have in MvM for the setup-time, yet I think that would be too much an advantage for the red team. Having his sh...stuff set up in time is part of the challenge for the engi.
Stick to the way things are handled right now. Special events like a community-highlander can be announced manually. Wouldn't worry about that too much.
Yeah, fundays! Dodgeball! Lovin' it, missing it... ^^
Once the second server is up and running again, maybe you could pick a day for one of the servers for a funday. Then you'd still have one server running on standard-rotation AND as the second server will also be populated again by the regulars, there might actually be some people for fundays. Dodgeball with just 1 or 2 people on each team ain't that fun at all. Also need to level-up my strange Persian Persuader, but in my experience maps like Degrootkeep ain't that popular. Yeah, yeah... The other modes like Saxton Hale could run there, too. I just prefer dodgeball...
