#91850 Setti's death

Posted by Perplexer on 28 September 2013 - 04:35 PM

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.




#91772 Setti's death

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.

Well, heady, what about we work on a new project buddy? :)




#89551 Remove DM and D2 servers!

Posted by SNiPY on 18 June 2013 - 07:30 PM

Yeah, i agree. It's sad. I will do whatever i can. But we all must help. As a first step invite your friends and play with them at those servers. After some times they will be used to that and they will play there without you invite them. Just a thought.

I'm afraid of these kind of changes. Bad experience. I will try to find another solution to bring players at the rest servers. Removing/disabling servers is the last option for me.

@ FonZi

 

Thanks. ;)

But i don't know. I believe that we shouldn't make any changes on the mapcycles so players get used to them. But i will discuss about this with the rest head admins.

 

@ sigi

 

Yea i remember the topic you created about the ffa game mode. I also remember that i liked it and voted +1. We will see. :)

 

.:EDIT:.

 

Maybe i would create a forum and an in game poll as well about this. Just to see if players would like it.

First of all, good to see that you are still a part of this community. I would also like to see you playing on our CS:S servers again too.

 

About the CS:GO server, we will think about it. ;)
