fpsclasico.de quakelive server

Post by adminless »

ok with some months of delay but I finally replaced the extinct Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory server with a quakelive one. at the moment the server is pretty much just standard theatreofpain dedicated clan arena server, no fancy/custom stuff. currently the server is 24/7 one map, theatreofpain, only dedicated, the intention is to rotate it from "time to time", let's say each some weeks/monthly, to other maps if there's enough interest. also in the future if things get going here it can be possible to tune this a bit further and as usual if on the other hand it doesn't it's likely to be replaced by something else.

so that's it, I feel like this should do the job by now, check it out and feel free to drop here (as well as on this sub-forum) your suggestions/requests for this server or just anything else you want to talk about it.

hello @admin

Are you still running Quake Live servers?
,,Sorry, that server wasn't found!"
Was looking for them on gametracker and came here to ask.

I think on qlive clan arena (i.e. Rocket Arena 3) plays much better than ftag so a "UnFreeZe" kind of thing server there would probably fall very short from the well know q3 version offered here. anyways, given the overall lack of activity at the fpsclasico server may be one day I give it a shot at setting up something else besides ca and see if it does some better than the current setup. thanks for the feedback and welcome to the forum.

First I will give you a big thank for the great gift to q3a community.

I've got a ftth connection at home and I have a linux server running h24. I've tried to setup a freezetag server with same options you offers on q3a (standard maps qeapons/ammo gl timings etc) serves. I still stuck on some settings such like limiting vote on only some features, weapon drops on kills and tring to enable spectate while frozen. I've tried google with no success for those settings. Do you got some cvars settings about those ? Please feel free to send me some advice I will appriciate.

Hey, I'd suggest removing bots from quakelive server. People simply don't play this way there - they look for empty server and join if they have good ping or someone is playing already. With bots nobody will join you if you go there to wait for an opponent, because it shows there are 2 players already and bots have strange names. Unless it's on purpose to reserve it for "private" matches.

well I think the duels one is doing good (i.e. ok, comparable to the [classic] masters one), the ca one yes it's totally death and it has always been. I highly doubt that will make any meaningful difference but sure I guess that it's probably worth trying anyways and see what really happens. ok, no big deal, bots just disabled now on both servers and we'll see, I don't think that for the duels will really change anything but may be for the ca one is better suited (as bots were totally random/alien there). anyways, speaking of the ca server, I was rather thinking as well to finally replace it with something else as that server as it's, it's totally useless so think as well if you would be interested in some other server there (as said the duels one will stick as is as it's just fine). I'm not gonna spend big time on this but probably I wouldn't mind trying a ffa server or something else instead of ca there and see if that does some better.

I see. I had in mind duels server, didn't even know about ca one.
I think with any bigger gametype than duel it's very tricky. Players play their favorite server and they probably won't join a random new one. I sometimes play ffa and it's always the same server with the same people. I can offer no suggestions how to make the ca/ffa server more popular without much effort.

But for a duel any server goes as long as it is configured properly and has low ping so I'll certainly start playing there. If you say some people played it then maybe there are some who enjoyed playing vs bots? Who knows. I'm sure you will monitor how the change affected popularity yourself.

yes basically I guess I'll just leave it like that without bots for a few days to see if the changes kick in and if not probably I'll just add the bots again but with the standard names this time which seemed to be your other point on your comment. that can probably be a good options too so we'll see, thanks for the input.
