#21 koth_clearcut in Map Discussion

https://www.teamfortress.tv/57319/clearcut-graphics-performance-troubleshooting

The map runs at 10 fps for my one backup player that I have to use this week who knows how to play scout so I guess we're hosed. In summary: The Candles aren't worth it. Cheats have to be on in order to disable dynamic lighting and we obviously can't do that.

The other thing that might contribute to fps issues is that the map has a bunch of full tree models around the perimeter (though only on the red side anymore). Often stuff like this is in the 3d skybox or has a draw distance that is limited. So like the trees in the mid arena only need to be visible if you're in the mid arena. The ones by red spawn only need to be visible if you're in the spawn area (very small), etc.

#9 Spaceship server costs in Projects

https://i.imgur.com/N9fzYl8.jpg

Another month arrives and Stephanie is still experiencing difficult times in this coronavirus economy. Even if everything were back to normal I still feel like this is something our community should contribute to regularly to help keep these services available. I am asking for your help once again in keeping the Spaceship servers up. Even just one or two dollars, if you're able, would be highly appreciated and helpful. I have given 15 this month and hope that our generous regulars can help to meet the rest of the goal like we were able to last month. Thank you!

Please help if you can:

#63 new dm servers in Projects

Yeah those are in the works for some improved spawns but at the end of the day there's no guarantee that it doesn't totally suck anyway.

#6 M17 LFT for s4 IM/Low Main in Recruitment (looking for team)

Really nice guy and you can tell he's dedicated. Plays well. His greatest strength is that he can speak and play at the same time. If you have him try roaming that puts him above most other roamers and is an immense asset. Gl dude.

#1 Spaceship server costs in Projects

This is regarding all of the Spaceship servers (MGE, DM, bball, ultiduo, etc). I focus on the DM servers since they're the main ones that I utilize and for the fact that they're the only proper DM servers in NA. These servers provide important services to our competitive community. Many nights now I see all four of the primary DM servers full and that is awesome! But as with most good things in life these servers are not free. It costs 75 dollars per month to keep them running. Steph has been covering this herself for a long time but now has come upon tougher times due to the virus. ( https://twitter.com/spaceshipSrvs/status/1287828476272218113 ). Yes the tweet is from last month but it's no different this month.

I ask for your help. Last month I paid the entire $75 but that's not something I can sustainably keep doing. I know there's a whole bunch of people who are regulars on these servers (definitely the case with DM). If you're someone who utilizes and apprecaites these servers and can afford to help with the costs would you please consider doing so? I realize there's many people who simply cannot but I know some people out there can. Even if it's just 1 or 2 dollars that would be super appreciated. What about sending 1 or 2 bucks every month? If a small group of regulars did that then we'd be covered. Seems like more than a fair price to pay for these services. (I already gave 10--guess I REALLY like my DM servers)

#57 new dm servers in Projects

I want to survey DM server players' opinions on a certain matter regarding some maps in DM servers. I am not acting in an official capacity on behalf of The Spaceship servers but I guess I am semi-officially gathering information which may potentially inform changes down the road because I think it's important.

A quick summary of my personal position on the maplist: I like variety and feel that most maps that I've played in dm over the years have value. Should some maps be removed? It's worth leaving that option open but for the most part I say NO. I was not happy to see granary removed from the current list. Yeah it has issues but they're not much worse than those of many other maps. I don't think it's worth removing the maps that aren't in the current season--Why limit variety like that? I don't think maps should just be removed because they "suck" since this is mostly subjective. The thing is that most if not all the maps "suck". There is somebody who will complain about every single map (likely me). I've been rearranging the spawns on some of the more obnoxious maps to make them a bit less horrendous but at the end of the day it's still DM. DM is crazy, wild and unfair and that's fine. It's just a place to practice shooting a lot. If "sucky" maps were removed then we'd have DM servers with like maybe 3 maps on them.

Following that logic here is the actual question: Some of the maps fall into a category that I have called "clusterfuck maps". I will talk about the king of them all, Turbine, but all this applies to Clearcut and Coalplant and debatably some others. Turbine is a complete frenzy. It's exhausting. It's so small that it would probably play better as a 3v3. The balancer plugin is currently set to refresh every 105 seconds and you can see it output the total team frag counts into chat. On clusterfuck maps these counts are notably higher than other maps which objectively shows that the action is more dense. All that being said I still like it but just not for 10 minutes straight. 10 minutes on Turbine feels like 15-20 minutes of absolute relentless fury. Which is why my idea was to change the timelimits on these maps to, say, 7 minutes. That's 1 minute of people filling up the server and then 6 minutes of playing (which will stil feel like ~10 minutes on a bigger map).

Please take these two quick strawpolls so I can gauge peoples' feel on this.

//Btw if your chat is flooded with text chat from all Spaceship Servers type /irc into the chat to disable that aspect. IMO this should be off by default ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

#1 LFP Main~ in Recruitment (looking for players)

medic: Bedeviere
scout:
scout: daily (thelizardunzipper)
pocket: ry4n
roamer:
demo: Jaguar

As it is now we're looking for a roamer and a flank scout. This will most likely be a Main team but it all depends on how the divs shape up and what the admins do with placements. We have some returning veteran players here and should be pretty decent after we shake some of the rust off. We plan to play the standard Sun-Thurs, 930-1130~ est. Must be able to mostly be here for those times (and by extention of that >>> no HL players). Performing decently well is important but even more important is being easygoing and fitting in with the mumble atmosphere.

please add me on steam: https://steamcommunity.com/id/jaguarfiend/

----We've found our players. Thanks to everyone who tried out.

There you go. Decompiled and recompiled. Airshot room still broken like it was prior and who cares. Not sure what was wrong and as far as I can tell everything seems the same and nothing got borked up in this recompiling process.

#34 RGL Bans in TF2 General Discussion

Shameful display, vanta. Straight up bullshit. I never thought I'd say it but here is actual "Fake News". Our match against Sorrow's Soldiers was on 02/25/20.

https://i.imgur.com/Bx3GpxC.jpg

https://i.imgur.com/8PzGauq.jpg

Here's that same dialogue from Discord with the date on (1/27/20). I guess you took a screenshot of this right as it was said? I really don't recall this being at 11:53am but I guess it was? What the fuck is wrong with you man? The obvious thing is that these words are about something that happened way earlier and are not about this current drama. Someone said some nasty stuff to me. It wasn't that serious and it didn't amount to anything. You see the word underlined in orange? That word was used a lot in the text above and below this -sarcastically- because that's what got golden banned. He jokingly changed his steam name to that for 10 seconds before a SCRIM in my PRIVATE server in a PRIVATE game between two teams that has basically nothing to do with RGL and our whole team got derailed by this. And based on some inside information it seems like this was done "for the lulz". No one was offended by anything. It was not aimed at anyone and there was no context for it whatsoever.

There's definitely a huge policing overreach problem with RGL. That's probably the league's biggest flaw that everyone is currently struggling with. The intentions may be good but the implementation is utterly flawed. Currently the system can simply be weaponized by teams against other teams to take out the competition outside of the game. Soon after the golden incident we had our match with the team that reported him and, go figure, we lost without our best player. RGL's noble goal is to avoid alienating anyone and removing hate speech and being a welcoming environment for all but I think when you do this by way of fear (of getting banned) you just create disdain for the org and its rules while encouraging others to use your system for spite. Whether or not certain behavior is acceptable by a community is a reflection of society's views at large. Over the years they HAVE been getting less hostile towards all minorities but you need to let it go at its own pace. When someone goes around saying something commonly considered a terrible slur the community at large will not want to associate with them and they'll eventually end up exiled, for lack of a better term. Until then, overpolicing is not going to accelerate this process. "Tolerance" is often touted as a very positive term but it's actually pretty trash compared to "Acceptance". Anyway this is just my opinion and I obviously lean towards letting people say whatever they want and then suffering the fallout from it naturally. I can type a lot more about this but I'll save it.

'24' here is calling us out for suddenly denying their ringer 10 minutes after the start time or whatever and accusing us of bad sportsmanship. First of all most of the delay to start the game was literally because we were sorting out the ringer situation with you, not springing it on you 10 minutes after 1030pm. We got into the server and a couple of people go "wait a sec, is that Owib?". And it was. There were a couple of "whatever's" but a bunch of us decided that we'd rather not play against this player who's got $$ winnings from last season in Advanced and was then still rostered on an Advanced team. IMO he doesn't belong in this div. Shoutout to him, he's really very good! There are also some other players on other teams that I feel don't belong in the div but it's not my place to challenge that. But when it's my team about to play right then and there, YES, that IS a good time to challenge this type of thing. So I double checked by messaging an admin and it eventually came back that he's only allowed to play medic. You can make the distinction all you want between a ringer and someone rostered on your team but I don't see him rostered on your team now which tells me that the same admin ruling applies to actual rostering and not just ringing him. We were not trying to sleaze you out of a fair game or collect an easy win. From our POV it's YOUR bad sportsmanship for trying to roster and pound us with an Advanced player. I don't recall us denying anyone else but I do remember saying something like "Can't you guys find, ya know, a MAIN player for this match between our MAIN teams?" You said that we were the ones bm'ing you and being rude. No actually it's more the other way. We were dry and straightforward about what our issues were and you were the ones getting pissy, though it's understandable due to the circumstances. Some pretty rude stuff was said by you guys, mostly before the game as I recall, and one last colorful zinger after the game by your main medic.

Yeah it's mostly bullshit that you can do this in this league and part of my intent was to pass some of the grief on that was done onto my team. Except here it was in a match and with context. But most importantly I felt fine reporting because you guys were being pricks. I can say plainly that I'm not too offended--mostly because I don't offend easily--but what you said is very distasteful. The word Jew is not inherently offensive but using a name of a minority as a verb is kinda bad. Try it yourself with any other such term. If it were possible to actually quantify my level of offense would it really make a difference in whether this was justified? I am Semitic. I have been bullied before with people using anti-semitic remarks. I'm 99.9% sure they didn't actually hate Jews but were just saying whatever the most shocking and hurtful things they could think of were. Does that make it not offensive? My sister actually had the shit beaten out of her numerous times as a teen and called really bad slurs (in Russia, she was born in 1971). There's more troubled history the further back you go with parents and grandparents, etc. Does any of this stuff even matter? I realize I'm playing both sides of the court at once here. RGL is way overzealous with enforcement of this stuff and I'd like to see this change (but I'm not holding my breath) but at the same time I'm not sorry for reporting this because you guys were being twats.

#889 unpopular tf2 opinions in TF2 General Discussion

It's very obvious from some of these posts here that those people didn't watch the video. One guy even said so. You don't have to watch it, of course. It's rather long and uninteresting to most people (and attention spans these days are basically nonexistent). But in that case you probably shouldn't comment. I like how post #863 picked the raunchiest photo to screencap (actually maybe one of the Belle Delphine ones would have been even better?). If you judge by the title of the video then you could wrongly assume it to essentially read as "Nursey Did Nothing Wrong" which is not at all what I said. I repeated that probably 10 times throughout. I'm not at all condoning Nursey's actions and I'm certainly not condoning pedophilia (which is not what any of this is anyway.)

The main point of disagreement is that this petty garbage is just not that serious. When I say that--it doesn't mean that I'm saying "therefore it's fine". I am merely saying to not make a mountain out of a mole hill. You can go ahead and talk about pressing charges or whatever but nothing will come of it because the system needs to be used to take care of actual serious abuse and whatnot. If you believe that this is serious then you need to bring forward more evidence. Better evidence. Something that shows serious manipulation, coersion, grooming, etc. Victims need to rally, make a strong case, come forward, state their stories. Because right now this just looks like everyone's buying that some uwu lewd text and a dick pic seriously traumatized and wounded a bunch of poor innocent "children". Yeah, I'm not buying that. But I did just tell you how you could change doubters' minds.

Final thing I want to mention is that I think it's absolutely hilarious that people think I'm a teacher or some shit. I didn't mind that rumor, and still don't really because I don't think being a teacher is that bad. I actually purposely went out of my way to not correct people for the last several years or however long that rumor's been around. I did this to see how this information would disperse, and it surely did. Bit of a social experiment. This is also a very real and current example of "if you just repeat shit enough it will become true". Same for the other stuff. Someone actually thinks I have panties NAILED to my wall? You can thank Air for these rumors. I opened my home to him long ago because he needed to leave his place for a night or two for whatever reason... I think he was faking being somewhere else to his parents? Some conference? It was never possible to tell with Air what was true and what was complete random bs when he told you things. Anyhow, most rumors and stereotypes are based in at least some kind of reality. The only true thing is that I definitely do have two plush stickies. Gf bought them for me before they became sold out and prohibitively expensive. There was a time I was considering becoming a teacher but I decided not to pursue that. Also, as many know, I "teach" newbie mixes and sometimes mentor teams/players.

And just to put it out there so it's clear: I have no interest in young people. I have had one real, serious relationship that may as well have been a marriage. It lasted 7 years and she is substantially older than me.

#13 King SCREW lfp in Recruitment (looking for players)

This really isn't what I wanted. I didn't want the game to lose a player and tftv to lose a good editor. This was just supposed to be a retort to a post but I guess it got kinda carried away. I really hope you make a return. You're not any kind of bad guy at all and your attitude towards improving wasn't even bad. I sincerely believe that you can figure out a way to conquer your issues and be really amazing. Feels to me like you're already most of the way there. I'm sorry, Carter.
