Power to the People

Post by =(V)=CandyMan » Mon Feb 04, 2019 2:19 pm

Changes are about to come and of course, the power is in your hands! What are we getting rid of this time, good question, two words but one powerful system on the server, the Cookie System.

Pros vs. Cons:

Pros: Balances Teams

Cons: Doesn't balance teams, can be abused, isn't specifically made for RX, anyone who changes their ini on a frequent basis gets a fresh new cookie count, etc.

So, realistically, it should go, it's doing more harm than good. But, we want to make sure you're fully aware of this change AND hear your thoughts, opinions, voices, etc., we're making a poll :D

This may be subject to the creation of another poll but...

if the cookie system is removed and the teams are unbalanced, will team switching (via a voluntary change by an admin) be allowed in order to balance teams?

example:

Team 1: Score- 0
Slagg
Candy
RJ
A3

Team 2: Score - 9
Proof
Noob 1
Noob 2
Joker

Proof suggests to switch with Candy to give team 1 a chance to win and is switched by an admin voluntarily.

I voted for the removal, only to try and see if there's a perceived gain. :thumbup

I doubt that'll happen BUT if a player does want to voluntarily move, they can ask an admin, who is present in the server (playing or in spectate) and request for them to be moved to the opposite team BUT they have to ask first, they can't just do it on their own leisure, they have to ask and get the approval but again, it's not only my decision.

I have it running for 14 days, to give people enough chances to votes, even those who haven't voted yet.

IF you guys are ok with ending it early, say so and I'm ok with it but if not, wait until it closes.

EDIT: I'd be willing to do this, if we can get 20 yes votes by the time the poll closes, I'd be willing to compromise and close it earlier and remove the cookie system sooner. :cool

I'm willing to even go this far, I was going to say this tonight but since someone already voted for NO again (previously was 1, now it's 2), if it don't change by the 14th and it's still 13-2, then I'd be ok with the poll ending 4 days early. But, I'll give you the OK or let you know what's up with that when that time comes.

The only thing that has changed is someone voted YES, changing it from 13 to 14.

The reason it's 13-3 is because Abigor changed his vote to NO, prick, so it's actually 14-2.

But, because someone did come and vote for YES, people can still change their minds and tip the scale the other way before the 18th, so for now, it'll remain open, I will keep in touch with you RJ if I say OK to closing it sooner :) (Chances are, no one is going to overturn their yeses and 13 people aren't going to come on and vote no, so give it another day or two and I'll let you know).
