    Jailbreak interest?

    Hi all

    So someone suggested I ask the community if you would be interested in bringing back a dedicated JB server? There are a number of people I know that play on US servers at the moment and I think DTK could fill a gap.

    Let me know how often you would be playing it if it was brought back?
    Would you be interested in committing to being an admin on the server?

    Just trying to gauge the interest and determine if it's worth investing resources into for DTK.

    Thank you


    EDIT: This post is in relation to CSS not CS:GO.

    It might be worth having a jailbreak night once a week on our multimode server for a few weeks, to gauge proper interest. I'm sure the admins from server #2 could accommodate.

    The problem with doing one off nights which have been tried before is it needs the community to be built up. JB night events require marketing and perfect timing for everyone which is where they fail. Throw in re-learning rules which vary from server to server, and certainly anyone that plays JB currently (on US or UK) knows a different set of rules to what DTK used.

    I'm thinking using the multimode server will fail unless for the time it is on the server is renamed to JB or the only interest you will have will be from DTK members aware of it. Even then when it's changed back to normal multimode people outside of DTK won't know that DTK have anything happening. For it to succeed I think it has to start off with its own server.

    Jb is on #2 Multimode every day if you want to play it, get in there, play it, invite your friends, do it regularly and you may build a player base, you won't know til you try.

    All good, just wanted to see the interest for a dedicated JB serv. I've tried playing JB on multimode, 30 seconds later someone comes in and votes it to BHOP. I don't think it's worth trying to build something on the multimode server if people can't see it's a JB focused server and if it only takes an RTV to change it off JB. Throw in that it's a rules based game and there isn't a JB focused admin monitoring it then it's bound to fail.

    As I said, just seeing the interest for a Jail Break server, not trying to build the multimode server.

    I would love to see a dtk standalone Jailbreak server, I loved playing on the Domination Servers Jailbreak, but found it much too loud with 50 people all talking over each other, I feel it would be much better with a smaller jailbreaks server, maybe capping at 35-30 players, but that is just my preference

    They are talking about CSS Jailbreak mostly, but with CSGO it needs a lot of attention put towards creating a jb server (and from my knowledge has lead to the failure of previous attempts) Also with DS having almost all of the regular JB players, and invex jailbreak apparently coming back it would probably be hard for the server to maintain a solid playerbase.

    I would say trying to build jb on multimode would be best at this point in time. I have been around for many rebuilds of jb so I think it would be best seeing how it goes on multimode.

    As mentioned there are many reasons JB on multimode fails:
    1. You don't have rules enforced, rules are key to JB success, it really doesn't work without them being understood and enforced properly.
    2. Anyone can start an RTV and change it off JB, as has been the case just about whenever I've tried on there.
    3. It isn't listed as a JB server so people aren't aware JB exists outside of DTK...I asked everyone I know outside of DTK that plays JB.
    4. JB nights appear to have failed multiple times already, mostly because it requires perfect timing for everyone which is impossible.
    5. JB nights are promoted within DTK, it doesn't draw members in and every player I see on overseas JB servers are not from DTK.

    There are many more reasons but I don't want to try to be negative about the multimode server, I just don't see a JB community growing where it isn't a JB server. As I said the main goal with the thread wasn't to find viability in building a community somewhere and trying to migrate that community, it's about providing the JB community a home. So just finding out whether that be DTK or elsewhere really.

    Looking on Gametracker right now, there is 1 JB Aus server with 32/56 players. Though I think DtK has tried this several times already with limited success. If I am not mistaken either, Jailbreak never really worked properly on CS:GO to begin with, but maybe that's changed.

    Now you're just beating a dead horse. CS:S will never get an influx of players other than curious people as CS:GO is the current game AND is free. One can dream but you have to face reality.

    I wouldn't play CSGO even if I was getting paid to play, let alone if it was free. All good if you're not interested and prefer to just play the latest fad like CSGO (which is 7 years old anyway, go find a newer game because that means it is better) but remember that the majority of the DTK community is still CSS based even if you've given up on the game.

    This isn't a thread of CSS vs CSGO, take that elsewhere. When I go to JB on US/UK servers it's usually 40%-60% Aus/NZ, sometimes even more. I'm not thinking like a 40 slot server like old JB days, probably more like 24.

    even though you want to be dismissive of csgo, i feel like a csgo jb server makes way more sense to me than source.


    despite what you've said about multimode, it's still a great opportunity to show if there is genuine interest for a standalone server.

    I love playing Source and jump on American / EU servers often as ~235ms for both which is playable for Zombie Escape. Forced to play CS:GO pretty much though due to timezones etc.

    I would say trying to build jb on multimode would be best at this point in time. I have been around for many rebuilds of jb so I think it would be best seeing how it goes on multimode.

    This ^^

    Not having a go, but you've not really been around for a whole bunch of years lol, the JB server and its ideas have come and gone, and come and gone, and come and gone again. This is CSS & CSGO.
    It's not that people are dismissing you or your suggestion, however the current setting of JB being an option on the Multi server should be encouraged and worked on IMO, if people are as enthusiastic about it as you say, then it shouldn't be too hard to bring people to the server and begin to fill it to population.
    Talking to the server admins to get their opinions etc may also help you to build on it too.

    If you have any forum or server questions send me a PM.

    If it becomes a popular thing I could probably port a few of my old maps across
