    +1 I liked to play harder tier maps without disturbing new players on surf and i'm sure its not much different on bhop. Would be a good idea imo

    Or perhaps a multi mode set up so players at the time can choose whether they want to play easy, hard, etc?
    If you have a problem on any of our servers, record a demo [Link to Guide] and submit it to SourceBans [Link to Guide] one of our administrators will be more than happy to assist in making sure our servers are enjoyable and fair for everybody.

    Problem with that is for the already existing easy tier server, more of the already popular maps will be voted in regularly preventing higher skilled players to have the chance to play/vote in those maps. And if they ever got voted in, the chances of that map not being rtv'd is slim as new or lower skilled players wouldn't want to play.

    Thus creating a hard server can keep the lower skilled players at the maps they want and can play and the higher skilled players can play what they want to play, without wither server being disturbed.

    I agree with you. if you have a look at any of the current tier 3 maps in rotation, whenever they come on one of 2 things happen. Either it gets rtv'd almost straight away, or all of the new players leave, effectively killing the server. I heard a great suggestion that perhaps hard maps can only be nominated by admins or high ranked player, while this is a great suggestion I think the same problem will happen. New players will rtv it or leave because they cant complete it and will get frustrated and leave.

    The point of this thread was less of a GIVE HARD NOW type of statement and more of a mental tracking for myself as i've talked to many regulars who have stated they would play a hard server and i've kinda lost track of who they were. I've even had offers of people who would donate specifically just to get it back.

    Additionally whenever people ask for the hard server I will be able to link this thread instead of just saying "I'll look into it".

    Spot on goose, well said. We should definitely work on implementing something like that in the future to help out newer players.

    The only problem is segregating an already small community and usually one server or the other is populated at any given time. I believe we tried this with Surf vs Combat Surf some years back and ended up being a graveyard. That being said, there's nothing wrong with trying.

    + from me. Needs to come back, teir 1-3 good and all, but sometimes you need need those 4-6 maps, as it does get boring with easy maps fast.
