    Redfist, I kindly suggest in the nicest possible way that you stop making stupid posts like those

    Requesting a review of Headake just shows what kind of a person you are :rolleyes:

    And I don't see why you are moaning, you have requested reviews of more CTF maps than DM maps :rolleyes:

    "Thing is,why would anyone review that map all because it ends up in a cue someware,hell ya gotta have commen sense too."

    Well thats how NC works, and it works great, until people like you abuse the system and request reviews of stupid maps.

    We do not follow the players, if we were to follow the players we would need to rate andaction a 10.
    We review maps, independently of their type. A map is a map.

    And btw in UT2004 the largest majority plays ONS, followed by DM and then directly followed by CTF. In UT1 The largest majority plays CTF and only about half as many people play DM. Following your logic we would need to review a lot of ONS maps first, then a lot of CTF's and only then review DM maps. Following that logic and knowing the fact we only have 10 review spots in the latest list we would need to have 4 ONS reviews, 3 CTF reviews and 2 DM reviews and one last review reserved for misc. stuff such as an occasional DOM map or whatever
    And when I currently look to the review list I indeed see 2 DM maps :)

    Dont get to the logical crap man :)

    Having the largest number of servers running doesn't mean that it's also the larget number of people...

    ya i just checked
    TYPE ..................SERVERS
    DM .................... 1136
    ONS ................. 504
    INVASION............ 113
    INSTAGIB CTF....... 314
    BOBMING RUN ..... 45
    CTF .................... 499
    DOUBLE DOM.........15
    TEAM DM...............396
    VCTF.................... 72

    As of this post in time

    But in UT they had "players" also listed, is there a way to see number of players in ut2004 ?

    Kinda hard to believe there is less players for DM,hmm isnt there that website for totals and stuff?

    (regardless of ANY issue around here,ah well ,it's an age thing,youl all eventualy learn)

    anyway I am glad your doing reviews period.

    not so bad. I guess Vctf is not so official to the game and some ppl just hate having vehicles inside a CTF map.

    And obviously hourences , Rankin is a monster , i guess it's ben played 3 million times online or something like that .....

    # of servers != popularity

    If I have 8 1v1 DM servers, and 1 16-player ONS server, which gametype has more support?

    Also note the empty/Hosted-Non-dedicated servers, but you have a good point.

    I also know alot of DM servers with retarded ppl or Sniper modified 300 shots per sec , wich i can't tolerate.

    The best servers are moslty VCTF/DM

    But there is that one website that shows all the games and also unbelievable to me is halflife 1 had like 10,000 servers
    and ut2004 was around 2000 servers,halflife online didn't seem all that good or somthing,now with hl2,wonder ware ut will stand.

    Red, taking this discussion personally is a bad idea. Making it personal (towards Aracdia et al) is an even worse idea.

    You cannot win this argument. Neither can you lose it. Why? Because it's the Internet, it's not that big of a deal.

    Seriously, just let it go, browse for some good DM maps, and request reviews on them. I'm sure the team will be happy to look at any maps that you think deserve a little more attention. Why? Because it's not personal. They're just doing their job.

    Whatever.....

    AV; you can't please all of the people all of the time... and the map is not worth 9 or 9.5. I thought seven was pretty generous.

    Well, thank you Manticore. In discussion in another forum I learned that there were several inaccuracies in the review. Along with furthur playtesting, these may influence the scoring.
    Because of the inaccuracies I feel I owe the author a second look, during which I'll also be addressing extended playtime.
    I know I can't please all the people all the time but when I'm wrong in a review I feel it's only fair to issue a correction.

    I really appreciate the support, though. Thanks very much.

    I am with him you reveiwed it they way you felt at the time and theres not much wrong with that. I have read must of your reviewes here at NC and i found must of them to be Fair and i do not disagree with the rating you gave this map. My view well ill stop there lets just say i dont like the map. Forget all this rubbish on to the question that realy matters will you still reviewe for NC?

    Well, no one really expressed a strong opinion to the contrary so I guess I am. I've posted a few others since. So I guess so...
