4 likesIt is sad to see VSP in such a state of disrepair. :( I haven barely touched TF2 ever since the Meet Your Match update (God, how I hate those changes) and haven't played it in about a year. Recently I have been thinking about coming back to enjoy some matches of VSP (only thing that actually still draws my attention back to TF2) but but it saddens me to see it's all so broken. By the way, I don't know if it counts, but the ability Flutterbat has to backstab someone while still invisible when coming out of a cloak is obnoxiously absurd. I always hated that. Consider that your number 18.
3 likesI've been meaning to make this thread in a while and never got around to it since I've been busy with irl issues, so anyways this thread is going to go on about how and what the current problems of the servers are, the list isn't going to be accurate since i know there alot more problems that i haven't been able to experience in the server and as well outside, so here is the current ones that i know: The 3 US servers are currently broken and won't let any player join. VSP Funbox DR map autodownloader is broken forcing the player(s) to download the map(s) from an outside source if they don't previously have the map installed. Starlight Glimmer, Zecora, Vinyl Scratch, and Braeburn rage mechanics is currently broken as in being unplayable. Spike's Flamethrower is unusable and his R rage is currently broken. EU and JP servers are currently running on an older version of TF2 considering the game has been updated a lot recently with the Jungle Inferno Update and the new update that fixes the main grasp of the Competitive mode and Pyro weapons re-balancing. A lot of the Bosses still have Random Criticals when they shouldn't have any to begin with. Spy Bosses still doing 325+ damage from simple knife stabs that are not back-stab related. Spellbook item still able to pick up ammo and having virtually no downsides. Classes getting HP max nerfs on certain weapons when they shouldn't especially for a mode that has Bosses that are technically supposed to One shot a Mercenary with less than 202 HP regardless that isn't a Spy boss. Pinkie Pie and Braeburn are not the only ones that are breaking the Super Jump timer. Lack of Admins that have interest in the game-mode besides the ones that still get on when the servers are on/active,(PS: i'm one of the Seapony admins that still comes onto the servers when they're up) A lot of the weapons are still under-balanced in the game mode, same with the Bosses. If there is any that I've missed that isn't on the list, please list them in a fashion that is understandable and obvious to players that have actually spent enough time in the game mode to know what's happening, Anyways there's also a poll that is going to see if People are actually interested in seeing VSP servers coming back. It's not necessary but if you use STEAM then you can also use this in your profile name to show that you are wanting to support VSP as well: #BringBackVSP
1 likeMix here, In my personal opinion, the biggest problem is that the current (and previous) owners lost a lot of passion (or were simply unable to work on the server due to complications or event in their lives) to really continue working and improving on the servers. Without a dedicated team, this task will simply fall flat again and again. I for one have always enjoyed moderating servers and building up communities, and I'm sure many of you have that same feeling for this old, but nostalgic servers. These lists are great and I do encourage everyone to not give up hope quite yet, with enough support and dedication these servers can be revived back to their glory days. I have had plenty of rebalance lists, ideas and whatnot for not only improving the current system of weapons, bosses, maps and mechanics but also donation system, music, and interface the servers have. In the end of the day, this all comes down to if A.) Video is willing to gather up a team to help rebuild the server or B.) ownership is transferred over to someone that has the time to.
