It hasn't been pulled from the game, just from the map rotation at their majors. The valve maps are all the maps excluding the operation maps that you can play on a valve server, including nuke, Italy, dust 1, etc.

Also, what does anybody think about tuscan vs brute's new tuscan?

Oh I assumed it was brute's Tuscan because the other one is t0scan. If somebody wants me to change their vote let me know.

I do think that we need to have a few constants.
I don't know how I feel about this. The popular maps are almost always going to be voted for, until our community gets tired of them, at which point we shouldn't even be playing them if nobody wants to. Plus the vote is open to anybody in the community that wants to vote, not just clan members or even forum members. (That reminds me I have to post to our community group for the next map vote.)

Yeah, I don't really like putting 3 as a constant. I have no problem with doing 11 maps so you always have 10 to vote for, but I haven't seen anyone complaining about the maps that were up so far or complaining to have one that wasn't there during the month.

I'm just saying right now people here are not voting for D2 out of principle or something. 90% of our "customers" don't come on this forum to to vote and leaving out overall favorites like D2 and Mirage will do more hard than good. There should be defaults, and fallback maps to repopulate the server, like we always have to do.

The server is primarily for the clan, and when clan members get on it usually gets bustling no matter what map. Or, if it's dust2, it will empty immediately when the map changes because they only came in to pay dust2. And then we have to wait for it to refill with people who actually want to play other maps, instead of just filing it in the first place with those people. I'm highly sceptical of the idea that leaving it out will do more harm than good, because the people who join because it's dust2 will leave again when it's not dust2, and the people who play other maps overwhelming vocalize their appreciation that this isn't yet another dust2 server. Furthermore, those players that find our server by typing de_dust2 into the community server search bar have literally hundreds of servers with the same ping to choose from. Those looking for a good time on agency (one of the most popular operation map of all time) will probably find one or two. We are more likely to get random drop ins if we provide something different yet popular instead of trying to provide what everybody else in the community is providing.

And I don't know about any others, but I didn't vote for dust2 not out of principle, but because literally over half of my gameplay in go has been on that ONE map. And I bet if I could go back to CZ, it's the same story. That map is boring as fuck and I'm not interested in playing it. I imagine the others who didn't vote for it felt the same.

I think we haven't had any problem keeping the server full when we are in there. People have been so happy to see rats, and blackgold, and they actually stay and play the whole map plus others. I don't know about people joining for dust 2 and leaving, but I know people haven't been leaving with our new rotation once they join like they used to.

Is it possible to have a map on the server that's not part of the voting cycle? Like manually load dust2 to jumpstart things when nobody is on, but then don't allow it to be voted on if it's not one of the chosen maps for the month? I like the 11 map idea, either 6 valve, 5 custom or just 5 of each and a runner up.

I see both Amaroq and Jero's points and not sure which one is better.

I think this might have been answered in a previous thread, but it's not possible to exclude a map from showing in the vote box which was recently played (say last 5 maps) is it? Only if it was the map you just played? If this could be done, it would also force more variety.

My votes:

VALVE
Italy
Vertigo
Cache
Cobblestone
Mirage

CUSTOM
Ali
Crown
Castle
Resort
Orange

Yes, but you need rcon access to change the map.

Correct. Only the most recently played map is excluded.

That would only be relevant if it's a tie for the 5th place map, and in that case it would just become the 11th map.

I think this is the first time in the history of the asylum that Dust2 isn't a choice.
