Saxton Hale/Freak Fortress Server?

Saxton Hale/Freak Fortress Server?

Postby Gangsta Luigi » May 14th, 2016, 10:56 pm

So I know that besides Dustbowl 1 and 2 and Orange lot of the servers rarely see any activity.

I was thinking that we could take one of the dead ones and make it into a Saxton Hale server. For those of you who are not familiar with this mod, it's essentially a variant of Arena where several players on RED fight a "boss" player on BLU who plays as Saxton Hale and occasionally the Horseless Headless Horseman and some other bosses (Vagineer, Christian Brutal Sniper)

This mode is very popular and most servers I see running it have activity quite often.

If you want to know more about it, read up here: https://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/VS_Saxton_Hale_Mode

Interested to hear thoughts.

I support this.+

I wouldn't mind a custom server. I know I would join, plus I'd like to see some variety. Why not we experiment with a custom such as FF/SH

Edit: Classwars #2 is no where popular like Classwars #1. I suggest we should experiment and change #2 over to FF/SH. It never seems to get full on its own.

That would be fun! Also to have a SKVRS hosted custom server.

I know this one other server that I join when I feel like playing TF2 late at night. This server does a variation of types of game modes like stop that tank, deathrun, prop hunt, hale, and some other modes that would be fun to see SKVRS servers host.

Well Phaiz does have a DoD server he can use for that. CW2 is the only option that works now and I think changing it would simply kill it.

Personally, I think this is a good idea. But, there is a lot of competition with these types of servers. BUT, contradicting my earlier point, they are extremely popular, so we should expect almost class-war-1 type activity on this server.

So basically, there are many servers running this so there is competition. But, the popularity allows for the server to have players most of the time.


Useless comment by TRUTECH, yeah.

:O I played a lot of FF/SH a while back, but I got sick of it cause I was always the tank or a medic (IE: One of the first to die). It would be neat, the only issue I see is that chances are people already have a FF server favorited (Like me.). A gamemode I want to see coming back is TF2ware (Which is also pretty much dead, much like Class Wars, so we may be the only ones hosting it.) The only issue I see with that is I think everyone's pretty much forgotten it by now. But a while back, I've seen a server near full, so it's questionable. My biggest problem is they might not want to visit our FF server because they might already have one they're comfortable with.

The way I see it, we gain game mode variety AND server traffic (not guaranteed but highly likely). The latter is especially good considering that TF2 is on it's decline.

The idea sounds good but much our other attempts at hosting a server in the past, we need to have people who are willing to seed the server
Because this is a custom server it would not be eligible for quickplay most likely

If it gets made, I'll gladly try my best to seed it. I've been a huge fan of this mode since it's creation and I'd love to see a Skiver variation.

I know I would too, Seeing new variety such as FF/SH would be great. I think this really worth a shot.

Also, we should have Doc as a medic boss. :P
