    Quite honestly I don't think it will help. My honest opinion is not enough focus goes into reg office (can't say much about d2 as I don't spend much time there). We used to have tons of reg office donators but due to just having a couple admins currently it is difficult to get new people into the community. SMs and higher admins need to spend more time in building reg office back up. A lot on there don't trust the community as there is rarely an admin around. Also having higher admins in there actually playing will bring in new admins.

    maybe implement what we did a couple years ago with d2 and have a couple admins from other servers move up in rank based on play time in reg office or how many new members, donators or admins they bring in from specifically reg office.

    people will just leave as if they aren't brought into the community there is no reason to help the community as they don't feel welcome in the server. It all comes down to laziness in building a server. We have shown before whether it is d2 or team fortress 2 that if you focus on the specific servers you want to build and have admins get people from those servers involved you will build the server pop, add new community/vent members and in turn raise donations.

    Adam, just look at this thread... All posts are almost entirely by hideout regs/admins. None of this applies specifically to them so it doesn't affect them. The lack of reg office/d2 regs and admins in this post should be a hint that we don't have enough current members from those servers. Making the AWP a donator perk IMO will just drive people away and not make them want to donate.

    This post is not meant to offend or bash anyone or the community. It's just my two cents that I had said as well when I was admin and I think that helped you realize I understood what was going on and how to help build the servers. Current admins from any server that read this, take this as a way to stand out, move up and impress Adam. You need to help your server but if you see a admin in your server already help populate a different server and bring in new members as hideout does not need 4 admins in that server at once.

    We do need new admins in office. I am on as much as I can, but lately I have been having these peak hour ping issues, that make my CSS almost unplayable. So i am not playing as much... Still working on a fix.

    If you restrict awps for players, you will have some new players that do not know the server and they will leave if they can't buy that awp the first time. They will never get the chance to get used to the server and later become donators/regulars. This might decrease the traffic in the long run. There have to be some "free" awps for non-donators. We have a lot of teens that generate traffic, but don't have the means to donate. If they want to awp, they will have to wait for a donator to die, or be very quick when the round start and buy that awp.

    The best way to try this would be to limit the nr of awps per team. Let's say to 20%. Then on top of that give donators unrestricted buying, like it is now.

    Example: Server has 30 players -> max is 6 awps for non-donators and no limit for donators. If 4 donators buy them first, then only 2 are available for non-donators to buy. Anybody can pick up the awps, if found on the ground.

    Like others said there has to be a message saying: "maximum awps=6. Donators=no limit". This way you let the new player know what is going on.

    If there will be a restriction an awps, it has to be done this way.

    D2 should be out of the question as this is an AWPer map and the population would be affected.

    As fo Office I think the AWP could be restricted to 50% of the server population and a donators can bypass this to buy the AWP too. Anything less would have major impact on the population of the server.

    I played in this server recently where you could buy an awp but after 3 rounds of using the awp, it strips it from you and makes you wait about 3-4 more rounds before you can use it again.

    Joltzz has the same idea as me, every few rounds should be a no awp round

    What's your opinion?

    Spread this URL in game, and get others to VOTE, because the outcome of this poll very well may bring changes to the server settings.


    Adam
    Isn't this what the hideout server is for? I also can see how new people can see this as favortism which would ruin server traffic in my opinion.
    How much is this 1 donation perk going to cost someone. It would be easier for them to just find a new server that allows AWP. I am thinking of new players not regulars or semi-regulars.

    I think it's a bad idea. I came to NG specifically because I loved the office awp server. I play in hideout more often now cause there's always a bunch of people there. I'd love the good ole days to return when the awp server was always full or close to it and battlegrounds on weekends, but I think that's the past. I love awp. Hopefully, we can get a consistent player base again. I know I'll continue to be there or hideout, but I do think we need more admins in office awp cause just earlier today the amount of racism and mic spam would have drove the best of us away.

    Wow...So this got completely off course, and run through a fine tip comb way to quickly.....

    I do enjoy some of the absolutely non constructive comments that are coming from people who have 'given up', 'stopped helping' , 'resigned' or are 'too busy' for the community. I'm at least glad that a FEW people realize that right this second tough decisions need to be made for our survival, and they need to be made NOW. So, to those that have nothing but negative bullshit to 'input', how about change your attitude, gather some fuckin ambition to provide a thought out, reasonable response to the question or bring a logical alternative to the table, or STFU.

    To those that did do that, THANK YOU!!!!!

    Now; Can we get back on track.

    So if the population is 8/46....or 4/46 this would still be a bad idea?
