I would wait until patch 267 and see if ns2+ features have actually become vanilla.

I think we should wait for next patch to see exactly how much from ns2+ makes it into vanilla, indeed.

If ns2+ continues to have a clear popularity advantage over vanilla I definitely think our main server should be running it.

Almost every night someone asks me/ heckles me as to why we aren't running NS2+ on our server. And I know quite a few players that avoid our server because of the lack of NS2+

I think if anything our main should be running NS2+, and the rookie friendly remains vanilla (though nobody ever even touches that server).

In short - yes although we should wait for next patch before making srs decisions.

However even if we added ns2+ to the main now, it'd be just lovely :P

i'm not quite sure why it matters swapping the 2 servers over, if people wanted to play ns2+ then they would go to the + server, but they don't they all play on the vanilla server. i say keep the adverts up and let people make their own minds about choosing which server they play on.

The ns2+ server is rookie friendly. Nobody wants to play a rookie friendly server, ns2+ or not :P
It's mostly higher-skill players that avoid YOclan due to no ns2+.

oh yer, i just noticed that the 2+ was a rookie server, i didn't think we had one.

why not just just remove the rookie side, i thought all players were welcome on our servers, after all we still get tons of rookies on the vanilla server even though we have a dedicated rookie one

Please keep the reg server vanilla, if you must have NS2+ put it on a separate server. :(

I would propose having an NS2 server and an NS2+ server. As we do now, but just take the rookie status off the NS2+ server.

Boom, everyone's happy.

We have turned 27015 into NS2+ and moved classic to 27025.

I've turned NS2 III/SWS off as it was causing people to be spread over 3 servers and games weren't really getting started. SWS still hasn't been updated either so that's not an option.

Never tried SWS, is it fun ? Does it still work with the latests CTD builds ?
If so, maybe schedule a special night for special members one day if others are interested ?

Maybe some special nights on other special modules ? To get fun with each other for 1 hour or 2.

What about this winter a special snowball battle in the ready room too ?? :evil:

'Yay'

As long as NS2+ doesn't bring any game changing mecanics I don't see a reason as to why not to use it.
