Many people on the 1v1 server lately have been voicing complaints about the gameplay sometimes becoming stale. I think it's time to bring about some new features to 1v1. Adding dodgeball a while back was pretty good, but where are the scout rounds? P90 rounds? Zeus rounds? Adding a few more modes would be great to improve the overall gameplay.

The second thing is maps. We need more maps, the ones we have now have been getting old. I'm not going to flatter myself by saying I understand much of how servers work, but if memory is an issue we could delete several of the maps and replace them with better ones. I personally like pyramid, but every time I play it there's always people wailing about how much they hate it. There's several maps such as the winter map and dust cat which are bad from an objective gameplay standpoint. If we wanted to, we could rotate some maps out every now and then based upon what players seem to like or dislike, while keeping other good maps such as regular dust, warehouse, and basement.

These are my thoughts on the matter, I think keeping the maps and modes fresh is super important. What do you guys think?

I agree, scout rounds, shotguns, bizon rounds ect would be great. Those are always the most fun. I also agree, more maps would be awesome. I feel like I play the same 5 or 6 maps every time.

1. Gameplay:

Agreed. I'll add the different modes. I'll need to google this as I'm having a brain fart. It happens LOL.

2. Maps:

Here's the issue that I don't think anyone realizes... When someone creates a 1v1 map, they have to put in a max amount of arenas for that map. If the maps doesn't have enough arenas, then people will have to sit out and wait for a active player to leave - which is absolutely dumb. If anyone ever notices the fact that you can't join the game until someone leaves (it keeps you in spec), that means the map doesn't have enough arenas on it to support the slot count for the server. When this happens, please let me know so I can remove the map from the mapcycle file.

How can we find maps that support 40 slots? Good question! I haven't found that yet lol, but, what I do is...search in steam for other 1v1 servers, then look at the 32+ slotted servers and see what map it's running, then just write down the map name, done.

Hopefully that all made sense.

We were lucky and had a friend who made maps so he made maps with enough arenas. Sadly he doesn't map anymore. Yeah, unfortunately, it is hard to find large arena you have to find 24+ arena maps usually. That allows 48 people minimum. I remember adding custom rounds to a 1v1 server before. I think @kennyL or myself can help you add custom rounds if you want.

I'll definitely get right on finding more maps when I'm on this weekend. I'm certain there's a lot of good ones out there with enough slots that we could use, thanks for the input guys!

Guys.. I added new rounds to the 40 slot 1v1 server, please test them out and make sure the rounds are working correctly. Then I'll push it to the 32 slot server.

If so, what other rounds would you guys like to see???

Pretty sure I can control the HP and if you have a knife with the weapon too.
