again thanks for all the time you put in APO
im surprised at this
'but most people don't want defaults it not been a normal thing to do on public servers for a long time'
i guess as i havent really played since 2006 till last year, so i rem 1.2 to 3.5 upto 2006
so for me this seems odd as it never used to be that way
i wonder why its not normal and the normal has become to give armour etc
it makes me wonder... is it because the public couldnt be arsed to cope with the first round? or are more lazy ?or want an easier 1st round or something?
how did this change from the old days and defaults to this, which for me spoils the first round excitment of de and no leg armour or no head, or just a pistol n full armour n off u go! go! go!
now its a bit more like oh wait there might be nades comeing to that bit ill have to wait. or a guy has mp3 or shotgun..
and it nerfs that first round skill. Anyways thats my opinion.
i miss that and it to me it feels dumbed down for the masses....bit like main stream TV
maps can be subjective but i bet theres a few that alot can agree on and find annoying which have been mentioned here in previous posts and i like different dynamic maps to play not just mainstream ones..i just dont like onesided or bad public maps, for the reason i have stated.
end of the day i said my bit... it will go whatever way it does, if u agree speak up
or APO etc wont know your feelings
if its decided to stays as is ill be sad amd frustrated, but it is what it is and at least i tried and there will be no hard feelings from me
i apprecaite APO has listened and tried stuff and the efforts he has put in to running a server for people everywhere.
