      you want to go offline? (turning your pc off)

  2. This is a no-brainer move and I don't know why people are mad. There is a reason why the server has a password in the first place. It's a luxury server for community members to enjoy, not a server meant to pull in outside players that apparently now end up being trolls or toxic.
  3. Oh my god systemic swag!

  4. I was always worried as manager of taking the innocent menu too far. However, I think there are surely are some items that can be added to make innocent less of a snoozefest and give people more of an exciting way to protect themselves. In terms of the server itself, since population concerns were brought up, I'm going to disagree with a few people here and say it's time to see bigger, more radical changes. I don't think balancing the metas or adding an item here or there will do much to boost server population; I rarely found success doing so as manager. One of my bigger regrets as EM was falling back on 1st/2nd/3rd place events because they're really ineffective at getting solid population boosts and only seem to get a few people to no-life the server for the event. Seeding has pretty much failed at providing long term population sustainability on many of our CS servers. The last time I recall any noticeable traction the server got was with the plugin switch, and even then it obviously faded over time. I'm not sure what the server needs but I think it should be something fundamental. Maybe drastic role or game mechanic changes. Even a switch to a different game like Gmod could be discussed. This might even be something to reflect on as a community entirely. My opinion can be taken with a grain of salt because I haven't played in ages, and I'm sure some of these conversations are already being had extensively at a higher up level. No one really is to blame here, I think gaming interests are just evolving so the servers need to adapt with these changing times and try something new to stand out. I don't think vanilla TTT and some of our other gamemodes provide the same magic anymore, especially on CS:GO. Stuff just gets stale with time. Minigames used to be a CS community server staple and now it's dead. This is all coming from someone who often argued on the side of keeping TTT authentic; I just don't think it will find much success anymore. EDIT: I'm glad you guys are opening up the room to talk about general population ideas. I'm sure you guys are working your tails off and I know how exhausting some of this manager stuff can be. Kudos to you guys.

  8. From what I heard people were experiencing the entire screen turning black.
  9. Are you not able to bind it? I thought there was a way to bind purchasing items to a key, at least a long time ago I thought there was.
