?

Would a map rotation be appealing to fellow players?

  1. Yes, it would be a good way to give people a voice.

    Hello! I'm here to make a suggestion with convivial intentions (meaning, don't discard what I'm saying just yet. Consider how the server has been doing and what could be done to bring back regulars. Like it or not, games have been dying and numbers (players) have been dropping as well.) I myself have been playing since 1.8. I've seen CubeCraft go through a lot of different transformations. Let's face it... the only feedback you get is from the players themselves.

    I suggest a map rotation for maps that were removed before the update. A map throwback! (My suggestion will be specifically for Classic Eggwars rather than speed). Allow me to elaborate a little more:

    "Rotation? What are you even talking about?"- Well, let's break this down a little, shall we? On regular team eggwars, there are a total of 23 maps. However, as a rank, I am able to click on the mannequin (to the left of the board). Clicking it allows me to see what games are available. 23 maps fill the slots, however 4 slots remain open. How could we utilize these slots? Well, you don't necessarily have to fill them with new maps, but rather just rotate OLD maps back into the pool. What I'm trying to say is, hold a vote (a poll, if you will) to see which old maps could be voted in. This poll could be held every 2 months. It's a good way to satisfy an entire community without having to get rid of the newer maps. As someone who is a regular on the server, it would actually be pretty lit to see old maps roll in and out. For example, I'd definitely vote Area51 back into the map selection, but just because I loved that map doesn’t mean other people did too. So after two months, Vegetables could be voted back in, replacing Area51. You see where I'm going with this? Everyone gets involved and everyone gets a chance to see the nice OG maps. This could also apply to skywars.

    "But what if a builder adds a new map? What if nobody votes to put in the new map?"
    - As they are staff members, they could overthrow the voting system. They would be able to replace one of the least played maps and add in their new map. It would be like sampling it. If people enjoyed the map then it could remain on the boards permanently, or they would eventually join in on the rotations as well. It may seem confusing, but please allow me to explain this system as best I can. I've seen it on other servers and it seems to work.

    "What would you do with the maps that are already on the boards currently?"- The rotation would apply to the maps that didn't make it past the update and the least popular maps. By doing this it paves way for new mas and encourages a little bit of the originals. (the rotation would be like 'the little maps that could' or 'the misfit maps'). All of the current maps wouldn't be touched unless the staff decided differently.



    "The older maps were removed for a reason! (Said Gainy)"- Yes, a lot of the maps that were removed were because of bugs, glitches, and/or the islands were too far apart. HOWEVER, just like the map treehouse, anything can be tweaked and fixed. In treehouse, the egg used to be located literally in the treehouse. It caused many people to rage quit everytime they were knocked off the bridge. Yet... the map was fixed and all was well in Townsville. My point is that maps can be fixed. Is it more work than anyone bargained for? Yes.... but think of the children!



    "What would be the point in bringing back old maps? It wouldn't bring in new players...(Gainy also said this to me ;-;)- Well Gainfullterror, you are not wrong. What would be the point? The answer is community involvement. We all know that there are a lot of active people on the server forums and that every person wants to be involved in some way. This server has a lot of good people and by including democracy, it would be giving people a voice. Plain and simple. Monthly polls would be a good thing. Like I've said before, I've seen it on other servers. It works. The real question would be, are you willing to give it a try?



    Obviously my idea is incredibly rough and I feel as if I explained it very poorly. I hope that someone at least tries to comprehend what I'm trying to say and that they are able to successfully demonstrate it to others. Will my idea get put down? 100% yes it will. Am I still gonna speak out and try? LOL yup. The truth is I really miss classic Eggwars. I'm not a fan of change, but I've kept my mouth shut for a very long time. Change can be good and other times... ya end up missing the old times. #BringBackArea51.

    So does that mean you aren't a person
    What are you a robot then?

    As for the suggestion my question is why
    I have made a thread before that had every single map for every single game on it (for all the maps at the time)
    You know how many eggwars maps there would be if you were to add all the newer ones with the older ones
    Even with a rank with so many maps it would be impossible to play the map you wanted because so many others would show up
    That is my reason for no

    TLDR Version:
    I suggest map rotations:
    What are rotations:
    > Donators can put maps into play including old maps.
    > Pls bring back area 51
    What if there isn't enough space in the map selection:
    > Builders can still replace maps if needed
    Would this affect all maps:
    > Map rotations only apply to old/least popular maps
    The older maps were removed for a reason:
    > Maps can be fixed
    What would be the point in bringing back old maps? It wouldn't bring in new players...
    > "it would be giving people a voice"
    "I explained it very poorly" I think you over elaborated it :/
    I think this is interresting, it would be cool if donators could choose from a menu of old maps that they can put into play, from a second page in the map selector menu.

    I'd really like to see this implemented. I personally prefer a lot of the older maps that are now gone as opposed to the newer ones that we have today. To be able to play those maps again would be super cool! :)

    I apologize, but I'm not understanding what you're trying to say. Are you trying to say that if maps were added... that the number of signs on the boards wouldn't coordinate with the number of maps? Meaning you wouldn't be able to play certain maps because some would show up more than others on the boards? If so, then I don't really know if that would be the case. I never really considered that would be a problem.

    I love the idea.

    I completely agree with removing maps that are least played because a lot of maps just camp their positions on board and nobody plays them and it gets really annoying.

    I hope they would add the map area-51 unedited, As in islands are still far apart, Rushing is still quite a challenge, Camping would be easily taken care off if you know how to play the game ;). Maybe Relocate the egg but i would prefer everything to be the same because the map was quite challenging which made the map much more enjoyable than any other map. Rushing is fun true, But 1 map where you would have a challenge shouldn't be that big of a deal, If you don't like it you might as well play other maps :p.

    @Tacosbefriends Opinion? As i mentioned earlier maps like area-51 are missed.

    I understand what you mean and I agree with that, Ranks should not have the ability to add OG maps for certain people to play it, That would be way too much.
    Otherwise replacing new "bad" (By bad i mean maps that barely gets any players) maps with older maps sounds like a cool idea, That wouldnt be an issue :p.
    The map storm is an fps destroying map for example maybe cube should consider editing it.

    Sounds neat! I know a few maps that have been done away with that players miss, so it might be nice to have them on rotation somehow. However...

    Breaking news! Efcluke has confirmed that a revamp of the old Area 51 map is in the works! Hype!!!

    @Tacosbefriends I really hope the revamp doesnt change the map drastically, Like i hope the Height and the Width of the map wont change because that is what made the map really unique and fun, Anyway thank you so much for actually listening to me and my annoying rants, That's why you're my favourite staff member <3

    Guys, you don't get it do you?

    Area51 was removed for a reason.
    The government had to hide the aliens. Everybody knows that.

    This makes no sense

    Would be nice to bring old maps, I know Area51 (I don't like it) but a lot of people do so bringing it back would maybe bring some players back and Hype back and everything back! :) :p
    I like this thread because you want to make community a little more involved in CubeCraft decisions C:
    Really like it +1

    I agree. Let's hope the revamp is just for bugs and not the map itself. Sure it wasn't the best map, but it was one of a kind XD

    that isn't what I said at all
    also you realise that the main reason they ever remove maps is due to unpopularity
    so... that wouldn't work with what you just said
    Nope they already don't
    I am saying that less maps with people who like them are going to be there also being that a large portian of the maps removed were unpopular so nobody joins any maps no maps come

    Area-51 was a famous map fyi but at one point teaparty hardly ever came to the boards and they increased its chances and area-51 was never on the board then and that's when i assume they thought area-51 died.
