So I was bored and came to the "old" setti site to see what's going on, ofc it's a ghost town. So I read some recent posts and funny thing ppl still think they can bring setti back from the abyss. Let me tell how this came to be (my point of view anyway):

 

I started playing here when setti was about 2 or 3 years old. It was great, server was full 20/7, players had great sense of humor and the gameplay was challenging. This was about 7 years ago and even at that time you could sense things were going to shit. You see the server was infected with a disease called Perplexer. It was almost always present so the server barely got any time to heal. The players fought it all the time but the disease had great power and little could be done. So they asked setti's keepers Ghost and k1ller for help. They didn't listen or didn't care. Years past and in one moment in time k1ller and Ghost acknowledged the players and decided to cure the server of the disease. Players rejoiced it was a good time to play on setti. However the disease begged for mercy. It begged k1ller and Ghost for return of its power and in return it promised the control of the server and protection from viruses (cheaters). In their ignorance, pride and confidence in their power they let the disease back in. Most of the players gave in and decided to enjoy the game and the server's community. They did their best to ignore the disease but over time it consumed them. They started to fight it and in the process they were slowly losing the desire to play the game. So one by one they started to leave the server. But the community was huge and strong and would have lasted several years more had it not been for the Update. It had cut off most of the strong players from the server. Setti tried to keep up but the update was too fast. A lot of players grew out of the habit of playing on setti and didn't see the point since the disease was still present. When setti finally caught up it was a little too late. Most of the old players left but new players took their place. Unfortunately these were a bunch of cocky little bitches (fortunately not all). At around the same time setti expanded. The last nail in the coffin. An already shattered community was spread thin. And slowly it didn't feel like a community anymore. As if this wasn't enough new players started throwing out crazy suggestions and to all our surprise the keepers took them into account. And thus setti slowly faded away until only de_dust2  was still populated. Regardless of the old players' warnings the keepers didn't nothing (they had a new toy which produced a lot of income). Playing one map over and over again drove players crazy and with the disease still present and running wild even the new players started to leave. At the end there was nothing more to control so even the disease moved on. What it left behind was but a dead husk.

 

A little bedtime story for ya folks.

 

Btw if any of the old players ( that is not you Marioc) still visit this site leave a note.

For a while this was like the hunt of the hacker. PLaying on some ,still, good css servers i could find out what didn't work about setti and that at this time is hella difficult to bring back old times. I have to say yre completely right.

And the year 2013 marks my prophecy to become a reality. Not suprised to say the least.

A must say this is a good example of 1% vs 99%. System collapses, cuz the majority gets smarter and the minority clings to control it wants. Go figure.

 

Tried my best to explain the problem back when we could cure the disease (as the biatch pointed out). But hey that wasn't important, cuz in short-term we were having a blast. But in the long-term.... I and many others saw the downfall of the community. But the ego charachter of the community prospered until it's peak. Can't remember when that was? I do remember when did the epilog started. My guess would be the day DeD2 server only "was released". At that point i saw, that was The End.

Wow, almost shed a tear, but i just partially agree with you.
True we have almost empty servers, and some of the admins misused their power, it is true that Setti is down, that we don't have much popularity, that we have failed to bring players back for a better part of a year. But i don't think we should stop at these facts, i don't see a reason, to turn around and say: "Well shiz, we failed, let's all cry about how dead we are". Maybe we will never recover, never get new players, never see the awesome gameplay that once played on our demo files, but maybe, just maybe, if we give it a shot, we can do something, cause this community (even though it doesn't have much players) is better than half of CS servers out there. Why should they steal our players? Our joy and happiness? 
Why should we stand and blame people for our downfall, true, maybe they caused it, but there is no sense in stopping.....

We did it once, we will do it again, now get out of the rubble, dust yourself up, take that M-16 and pwn some n00bs!

MisaGen is right. Just like him, i don't give up so fast and simple. Btw you talked only about Perplexer. Don't tell me now that he was the only disease! Oh come on! No need i mention names, you already know them! And they never got punished. They never lost their admin rights. Were they under Ghost's and k1ller's protection or Ghost and k1ller never gave a shit about these issues? I don't know and i don't really care. I can't fix the past. What matters is now, tomorrow, future.

 

I and some people here believe to a new start. We try to make this real with every possible way. The deseases are gone. And if they come back, i, headHUNTERZ, M4Andreas and whoever active head admin will take care of this. And because i can't promise anything on behalf of the other head admins, i will talk about me. You have my word as a man and as Setti's head admin. If any desease, old or new, try to harm Setti community again, will deal with me.

 

Now here is a question. Since the deseases are gone and since if they come back they will be treated, will you come back and help? Or will you just give up?

You know, that literally nobody gives a shit except you guys. That's a sad truth. You just can't deal with it. You keep telling lies to yourselves. Stop - this is the end. The end of the Setti community. It will never be back. But, wait, you'd say there are a few of us left. Too few. 6 active members will not bring back Setti to life.

Let's just forget and pretend like it never happened.

Hahahahaha, what an idiot. I LOLed at the post though. :-) I was an admin on Setti for 7 years (since 2006). Setti was always popular, when I played or when I didn't play (I took 3 month pause every year). Setti wasn't dying for 7 years. It started dying 1 year ago, after it was changed from a 1-server to a 7-server setup, and ultimately after Ghost and k1ller lost interest and pursued other things in their lives. Transfer of Setti project responsibilities didn't go as smooth as it should have, so everything pretty much deteriorated.

 

Gringo13 was just a regular CSS playing noob who didn't know what was really happening. The only thing he knew was me slaying him when he was a bad boy. So of course I am the big bad figure as far as he is concerned. :-)

 

By the way, Bruss servers also lost their main server administrator recently. He left the project and their community is suffering bad now. Servers are shit, admins are idiots and they don't give a shit about cheaters or troublemakers. I don't see a bright future for them either. Everything comes to an end eventually.

I want to add some things for my previous post so i don't cause any misunderstandings. I have no problem if everyone is playing at the servers and browsing at forum. All i want is people don't cause any problems. That's all i want. And since Ghost and k1ller are inactive, at least we must try not to cause any more issues than those we already have. We all must try for the best of this community. At forum and at servers.

Perp you said that Bruss is going down. Will you come back here and help? Currently it's only me and heady who shake things here. I don't know what happened with Gringo and i don't care. All i want is people help this community, in every possible way and not to cause any problems.

Someone.

Ok then. Since this is about Setti's "death", say whatever you like about it. The rest people that Setti isn't dead yet for them, will continue hope, believe and keep trying for a new start.
