    Exclamation Valve Maps's Progress Thread

    Graph of Server's Rank

    Posted on 1/30/12
    Ladies and gentlemen, I am posting this to inform everyone that Valve Maps' ranking has dropped significantly in the last week.

    At the time of this post, Valve Maps is ranked at 1040. Exactly a week ago, the server was ranked at 867. A few days before that, it had been at 822. This may not seem like a big deal to some, but we can't let the rank keep dropping like this.

    I know we have lost several key members/VM supporters. And I know many of us are busy with school and jobs. But we can't give up! Many people showed up for the Valve Maps meeting held on Jan 1st. Many of us said we will support the server. And that's what we must do!

    Another thread was made discussing ideas on how to keep our servers active. Hopefully, these ideas will be presented during the meeting and can help Valve Maps. In the meantime, please idle and play on the server whenever possible.

    We worked hard to get Valve Maps back. We can't let it go down! Valve Maps forever!

    How you can help
    - Check our VM server before playing another game; if empty, help jump-start!
    - Get at least 8 people on the server; this will activate Quick Play
    - Idle during the night (not as necessary; this can be more helpful for DustBowl)
    - Have fun on VM!


    How many are on VM right now?



    EDIT: 2/8/12
    Quick Play has been added to our servers! (No-crits & no-spread have been disabled.)

    EDIT: 2/14/12
    Quick Play seems to be working its magic. The server has been filling up faster and staying filled longer than before. Rank has risen up by about 200 ranks since Quick Play was added. Idling is not as necessary as before, but instead, a small group of active players are need to jump-start the server.

    EDIT: 2/20/12
    The ranking is back in the triple digits at 994! YES!

    EDIT: 2/27/12
    We broke into the 800s! We are at 884! 110 ranks in one week! :D

    EDIT: 3/15/12
    Despite the decline we suffered through, we finally reached our highest peak of 822!

    EDIT: 3/16/12
    A new record! We have reached the 700s with 777! :D

    EDIT: 3/19/12
    The ranking is now in the 600s with 678! WOO!

    EDIT: 3/22/12
    Valve Maps has reached the 500s with 598!

    EDIT: 4/8/12
    We have reached the 400s with 476! WOOT!

    EDIT: 4/26/12
    Valve Maps is in the 300s with 390! Awesome job, everyone!

    EDIT: 7/29/12
    After many rises and falls, Valve Maps has made it in the 200s with 291! FINALLY!


    EDIT: 8/7/12

    But you didn't have to cut me off
    Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
    And I don't even need your love
    But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough

    Also, I have added a poll on the subject of Quickplay. To use Quickplay, we need to disable no-crits and no-spread, which are features Valve Maps currently have.

    Due to Valve Maps' rank, I feel that we may want to reconsider and have Quickplay instead. Quickplay will help drive traffic to Valve Maps, and this may help keep the server from emptying so much.

    Please vote in the poll, so that I may know how the division feels about this.

    I believe Quickplay is already on there even with no crits and no spread. Spidey made a plugin so that it could work together.

Your way is like taking candy from a baby after you gave said baby some knockout drops.

    I say no because there are a lot of people out there who love competitive game play

    Really? If that's the case, I suppose my poll is invalid.

    I'll send a message to Spidey for confirmation, just to be sure.

    It's either crits or Mr.OneShot for Valve Maps; can't have both.

    it's nice that you put our conversation in there, but please keep in mind that what i said about foundry may not be true now. by now, most people have gotten achievements on Foundry, Foundry can still be changed at any time. our Foundry server is running only on the fact that the map is amazing as of now.

    Still though, Valve Maps needs more supporters.

    We've been doing so well with our rankings, what happened guys? There used to be 16 people idling in Valve Maps 24/7.

    About Foundry: Very true, and I was actually thinking that just a few moments ago. Foundry can use some help as well.

    About the Idling: I'm not sure. But please, feel free to join us in the idling.
