Omaha - Allied without beach flag

How fast you guys want to have this game dead? Last crowded server left out there and some (head) admins manage to leave it with 40+ minutes left and allied having no spawn on the beach. Sunday evening, prime time! Numerous players asked for a restart, but no reaction at all.

It is already a big raping fest for axis, but without beach spawn it is just utter bullshit...

Question for the admins present at this moment: why no reaction? Why leave it like it was? Is there anything to do to stop this from happening again?

That could be solved with a simple mod, we can blame tuia for that. But Raketen not restarting the map was atrocious.

Re: Omaha - Allied without beach flag

Hi

We are aware how unwise this map is on the beach.

Experience has taught us that restarting the map leads to a reduction in the number of players. For whatever reason and as illogical as that sounds.
I personally don't like the situation either.

There is always the option of a map vote.

As soon as we have the opportunity to change something on the maps, we will of course do so. Deathbubble, for example, would make sense from a certain point.

We thank you for this contribution and also your interest.

We will solve the problem as soon as possible.

See you in 1942

Re: Omaha - Allied without beach flag

have long been thought of before us
just leave the middle uncaptured at the start of the map.
That is, at the beginning of the round, the axis has a point on the hill
allies has a ship
the middle and the beach are empty. While the axis captures the middle, the allies take the beach without any problems.

Re: Omaha - Allied without beach flag

The problem was that some halfwit got the drivers seat on the boat and didn't go for the flag. That problem isn't going to go away in maps where crucial vehicles are manned by dimwits. You' ll see that in aberdeen with m10s, you'll see it with planes on iwo jima and so forth

1- An easy change could be done : Maybe reduce the flag area at a very low radius so that axis can't keep it white and hide atst ? A bit like the beach flag in Iwo Jima ? No need for modding and bubbles... but beware of the nades !

2- But as you are talking about modding, what about moving the flag to the tank-spawn area and link the west spawn-points to it ; And add another uncap with same config (value = 0, radius = low...) at the east of the beach, which will handle the spawn-points on east side of the map ?
So that allies players can spawn east or west as they want ? And at the beginning, they can attack both flags and capture at least 1 ?

3- Or simply move the flag to the tank area and everything will be fine imo. Axis will take more time to reach it and the ship can easily clean up the area...

We can't unfo prevent new players from waiting a bit that the ship is full, except if Marlin is there to teamkill the driver and take the seat.

Re: Omaha - Allied without beach flag

When i was young, axis had two tanks on this map and it was allways a rapefest.
You should stop whining and embrace the challenge.

Re: Omaha - Allied without beach flag

Sorry but I just simply restart in that case and problem is solved. That's also a reason why restart command exists imo. My experience is that more people leave when you don't..... smile

Just take that beach at the beginning.

Of course the left Boat should not be driven by a Bot.

Re: Omaha - Allied without beach flag

Hello guys, you can blame me for this because after few our admins were particularly enthusiastic putting the maps they wanted as next maps, changing map order and restarting rounds, as head admins we took action and specific instructions were delivered to admins to prevent abuse of admin maprights. Hence admins do not use these commands unless it's strictly necessary. Looks like on Omaha it was necessary indeed to restart the round, sorry about that. We will remind to admins to restart round in such cases.
A tip for players on omaha, on allied side please drive the boats asap to the beach flag, don't wait for everyone to get into it because a new boat will spawn very soon but the risk to get map ruined if axis sneak to beach flag and don't let allied to capture it is too huge.
Btw, after I read the logs I'd like to remind that admins are people too and if you need admins help or want an admin to take action, please ask politely and overall keep discussion with admins on server civil. Instead if you start flaming and insulting an admin, chances are he or she will ignore your requests or even sanction you for being too inappropriate in chat so please keep this in mind. Keep it civil on server and respect the rules and admins, please.
