    those maps have been on the mapcycle for years, people leave or spec or rtv when downfall or chain win the vote but they were never removed. cyclopean is played almost everyday. Midbirdge loses players or they whine about it

    a lot of misinformation in the thread, about maps on viper's cycle or not on and how admins should act shouldn't act. The fact is if the maps people do play often get changed people complain, if the rarely played maps are voted or put on people go spec leave or rtv. Sounds real good to say more maps should be played but they aren't even when they win the vote.
    On viper I have it set that once a map is played it cannot be played or nominated for another few hours.

    people dont like when those maps are played because the playercounts dont support them. a 12v12 doesnt work on chain or midbridge. it'd be great if an admin changed to them when a round was over on a full server, but otherwise its just boring as no action happens

    it seems like empires seems to usually run into some map spell when only certain maps are played all the time (dune used to be one of those, along with plunge. now they are never touched). its fun when an admin changes to a map from years ago people forgot (GLYCENPASS). even if the map is shit its still fun to play something once.

    I almost wonder if a "forgotten f̶a̶v̶o̶u̶r̶i̶t̶e̶s̶" PUG would be fun.

    Rules:
    No Crossroads or slaughtered at first...
    but basically underplayed but decent maps.
    I've never played GENERICSNOWCANYON
    But I'd never make it to the pug anyway :(

    I don't know if there's a working version of Glycenpass. An OB version got done by Scardybob but it had some issues. Glycenpass is literally the only map in Empires that I've never played a proper round of besides the old official emp_gauntlet.

    }
    }

    as you can see I have many maps to choose from just they are never voted for once a map is played it cannot be played or nominated for 4 hours. I added money cl 2 months ago due to it being requested by several. Suggestions are welcome.

    Slaughtered is the best map. Bootybay is great for low population.
    I would love to play them 2 maps all day as opposed to normal every day crap like money, money Cl, escort, money,bush, money Cl,escort,money.

    as you can see each mapvote includes 2 maps from default group 2 from custom group and 1 from infantry group. first slot in mapvote is not available for people who just hit 1

    The conclusion is that the players themselves are bringing this upon the server.

    okay I will post it again. BOOTYBAY IS NOT ON VIPER, it is broken and maps can be played ONCE IN 4 HOURS. Not yelling just emphasizing.

    I was saying bootybay is a good map........works great for low population.

    Also I'm pretty sure the map cool down is broken. We have been on money and it comes up on the vote.
    Or we are on money then go money Cl and money is back in the map vote.

    One solution would be have a stock rotation and just have rtv bring up a vote like it did in the past.

    rather block 3 as at the time mapvote starts most are engi and put out their calculator. or even better start at 5 theres no 5th weapon slot.

    Change map vote to end of match so the people voting are the ones that actually played through the entire game. Maybe then they'll stay longer.
