So from lack of play and lack up support for them, I am wondering if we should keep our tf2 servers at all. It doesn't mean we have to stop playing, but there are plenty of established servers that we all like and play in. I am not saying we ARE getting rid of them either. I want people's input. I am perfectly fine with using other's servers or keeping ours either way. However, it just doesn't appear to be in anyone's interest to have our own servers. lots of people say they want to play in our own, but it doesn't happen especially if someone doesn't go in before hand and start inviting people. So I propose a vote to the clan. Lets hear what you have to say.

For:
1. People are jerks, and it's nice to have a safe haven where you don't have to play with jerks.
2. We met ray, proto, and Prof through TF2, and they are cool people.
3. We're not exactly low on resources, and it's doing no harm.

Against:
1. TF2 clans don't really seem to be a "thing". We don't gain much by having servers unless we have either one really popular one (but see number 3) or we are a household name like lotus with ten billion servers.
2. We met all of our TF2 clan members before we had servers. We don't seem to need servers to attract the TF2 population to our clan.
3. Even our clan members who only play TF2 don't play in our servers.

Conclusion
I feel like the resources would be better used with a different type of source server. Jester, Silent, Ray, Exodus, and others play CS:S. Many of our clan plays L4D2. These are two games that I feel our clan would more appreciate an [AM] servers than TF2 (as per the "against" reasons posted above). My opinion is keep one TF2 server, just in case we all wanted to have a TF2 party, and shut down two others to dedicate the resources to a CS:S server and a L4D2 server.

Also, on a side note if anyone is truly interested in doing highlander we need to get online more and play even in other people's servers. we can test out small group strats even then just to work out the bugs. prototype has some people that aren't in the clan and I think ray does too. so even if its only a few of us let me know, or we could try to join another team with the few of us that are interested. So give your feedback.


I tend to agree with anubis on this topic. I would enjoy a l4d2 server.

I'm indifferent as I extremely dislike TF2 so I won't be playing the game regardless. But I agree with Anubis, that would be cool. If everybody is playing L4D2 I might consider buying it.

I'm not against shutting 2 down and leaving 1 up. I do think that we need to get some highlander practice in against other teams. I'm sure there's a reddit for that. Maybe mess around in tf2lobby? I don't know much about it.

Yeah, that's one thing I was thinking of. Once we get a team going, we would definitely want a server to be able to practice against other teams; but then again, with a box in Philadelphia, most people might want to play in their servers anyway.

Though, for obvious reasons, my opinion doesnt amount to much on the issue, a simple solution would just be to keep a private server for personal needs, and then with one of the six gagillion tf2 servers you can always find a decent on to play in...theoretically.

Excuse me, What about me? Yeah, you asshats met me there too. Also, I play in the servers. At least when I am able. I am down for keeping one. With a couple of standard epic maps E.G. Dustbowl, Barnblitz, Gold Rush, you know, the basics.

I know I thought about it like thirty seconds later but never went back to fix it. :( I'm sorry.

I think I'll just keep the valve rotation server.

Well, the polls are in! We'll keep one TF2 server (probably the valve map rotation unless somebody suggests otherwise), and set up a CS:S server this weekend.

I really need your feedback if you are a source player! I'm looking at you, Silent, Jester, and Ray.
