M&M Map Vault Plans for Fall 2020 and On

1

Morax, I'd hate to be a hater but imagine making a "Good Map List" what type of biased shit is this. This entire list will be your opinion. You can't deny that it won't be biased everything you decide will always be biased that's how humans work. This shitters list for maps and this "Good quality maps" is completely opinion-based. People think Astro Crater is a genius map, that's their opinion.

This accessibility thing blows my mind. I thought you were making good decisions; Morax, but it seems that you fail to realize that this is community ran and you ignoring the community will never help you. You realize that I, myself deal with the community on a daily. You seem like you haven't realized what your job is yet. It's not to be the police but its to be a voice for the community and what they want. Its never a solo job. Your acting like your opinion matters over everyone else's and that's a foolish way of thinking. I understood your enforcing of certain rules to enforce some kind of "Standard Quality" in the vote, but I see you couldn't handle that so your last option is to good full Stalin and great purge the map vote and only allow certain people. Who will suck your toes to be on that white list?

Morax you just never listen to anyone I feel but a certain selection of people and shit you don't even listen to them. Everyone can tell its 100% what YOU want.

Can we just have a vault for shitters and then a vault tailored for quality maps/approved authors?

Why would we allow people to be a "shitter?"

0

Because they have opinions like it or not. Astro is a "shit" map as far as I'm concerned but there are people who play it 20+ times a day, im pretty sure they like the map.

@Morax Because this is a small community and losing people due to elitist attitude will make it smaller. I know it may not be apparent among the ESL community but Russians LOVE their shitty maps, and I know that a huge source of new faf players come from the community that Yuri built on casting shit maps. I'd argue that the astro/gap community is larger than the rest of the faf community combined. Do we want to lose that player base because we personally don't agree with it?

Okay then vote me out when the election comes up. Noted.

I don't understand why you guys think this = deleted maps. the maps will still be there and can be played. no map is ever going to get removed, it can be found in the vault, and you can host whatever you like.

The Russian community will not lose their gap/astro - make sense?

They will lose accessibility and awareness for many new gap/astro type maps, as well as for many other new maps that won't be on your whitelist, though:

Being able to upload a map to a vault where almost no one will see it because it's not easily enough accessible/discoverable is better than nothing, but it's much, much worse for getting maps out there than being able to upload it to somewhere where everyone can easily enough see it if they're looking for new maps to play.
Doing the 2 vaults or 2 lists idea would resolve this issue.

Cascade, penguin, I don't believe what I'm doing will affect this.

In fact, 2 Russians actually approached me and requested to disallow gap and astro clones:

Feel free to contact Robustness or Suzuji on the matter...

Popular does not equal good, Moses. Sorry.

Yeah... in retrospect it looks like this was not the smartest thing to post. I didn't know that such a firestrm might be created by my posting here, but the elitism is comical.

And the people leading the charge against the popular maps are the ones that don't know why popular maps are actually popular until its explained to them in detail.

@biass

Let me know when you make a map that fills.

Of course it will affect it; this is very basic cause and effect. If you make new non-whitelist maps harder to find/access, then fewer players will discover/play those maps, even if they want to discover/play maps like that.

I had no idea he made Dual Gap.

Well. I guess he has made a popular team map. Well done.

We know what we are doing...

Im not sure what might suck worse.

The fact that:
You know that you only got a meager 1000 play count on one map because you did nothing but host it for years on end.

  • And the fact that you knew that I knew this, and that I had already called you out on this fact, and that you didn't have a good counterpoint for it. But you attempted to play this card without doing any basic research anyway.

Or the fact that:

alt text

The sum total of all your other maps combined is 180.

And the play count of the CHAMP

the CHAMP

The play count of the CHAMP is 222?

Subtract the total amount of times you've hosted your own map.
Do you think the amount of your total map plays can compete against the CHAMP? Didn't think so.

Stay humble and work on making good content instead of making 3000 word forum posts to justify bad content. You'll have a better time in the community if you do.

Did you actually make Dual Gap, or did you just do a remaster?

And if you subtracted the total number of 1v1 games for any of your maps - aside from Dual Gap variants - do you have over 1000 games?

More an expanded edition to an already existing map, but of course this was not exempt from your inquiry.

But besides that, it'd be hard to discount his "1v1" maps when some of them are designed for team games and can be played as such. Glossing over the numbers, it's difficult to tally up those instances, but odds are good he's comfortably over 1k games.

I would have given him a chance. And if it doesn't work out. Then give a chance to the ideas of biass.
