For the most part, I'm happy with our website. And with few minor improvements, I will be okay with state of the RPG server.

I want to find out from you if there anything you think we can do better. Let this be an ongoing discussion.

The RPG server is indeed a good one, but how come sometimes the server goes down (ie: "RPG is down!"). Maybe if that could somehow be improved it would make the server better. Although the regulars know to "RTV" when that happens, but they may have to stray away from their favorite map to continue getting points and enjoying their time in the server.

Also I have noticed some of us complaining about playing the same map over and over again. Can we update the maps with some new ones and remove some other ones we dont like? That may contribute to improvements to the servers.

Regarding the maps, if you guys have a map in mind, post it here. If you want a map removed, do the same.

We have tons of good maps, and it's up to the players on the server to explore them. It sucks that everyone seems to want to play the same few maps. The alternative is to remove map nominations and simply have random maps for rtv. I don't think that's a good idea, but it's an option.

As for the RPG going down, I will be updating few things on the server in the next little while and do some testing to see if I can isolate the problem. I do know the issue is database related, so hopefully a bit of testing I can figure it out.

As for the quake sounds, I like to hear other players opinions.The quake sounds work well on deathmatch servers, but on the RPG I think they might be annoying. Players will be hearing "Multikill" or "Doublekill" every second due to the fact can zombies die really quickly. If enough players want the sounds, I will figure out someway to make them less annoying. I do know that quake sounds can be disabled by a player.
 
For the RPG server, I'm guessing if someone is afk for more than 3-5 minute move them to spectate automatically. Some new comers usally leave if they wait a bit too long. I can't say I'm right but that's my guessing.

Also, if someone is in spectate, is there anyway not to include them for the rtv. Usally when there's more people in spectate than the players, the players can't rtv because of the people in spectate. I'm guessing new comers leave when the day is high and can't rtv for easier days.

I'm currently working on improving the RPG server. The afk manager will be part of the next release.

I've looked into the RTV issue. By default, there is no way to exclude spectators in rtv votes. But spectators can be kicked from the server after X minutes. This in combination with the afk manager should, for the most part, solve the rtv issue.

how about a day where we get all the zombies from every day previous like a world war Z day

That's certainly possible. Some of the days on the improved RPG server will feature zombies from previous days. If the general consensus is that such a day will improve the RPG experience, I will add it.

I think we are improving what we can. I keep in mind that we are rebuilding after the departure of several clan members following others. The DG forums website looks great and easy to navigate. We need to encourage new memberships and solicit as necessary. I would like to see us be consistent with monthly events and special offerings to encourage donations to support the servers. Great seeing all the recent posts of events planned. I would love to see a monthly top finishers tournament on ZombieHell Classic. I think for the most part we are doing well being friendly with new players on the servers. Some admin staff need to be more active on the forums and servers.

Can we un-restrict the view we get when we die in game? Right now we are restricted to First Person only view when we die. I think it would be more enjoyable if we were to be allowed the Chase Camera and Free Look view as well.

i think he is talking about the rpg and classic because after you die you can not look around in Third-person or free cam around

Should be fixed now.

The RPG server is indeed a good one, but how come sometimes the server goes down (ie: "RPG is down!"). Maybe if that could somehow be improved it would make the server better.

Since yesterday we have our own database server. It's quite powerful. It should definitely help with the issue of rpg going down. And since now I can actually monitor the database server and the connections into the server, I can better troubleshoot the problem. Please let me know if you notice any improvement.

Also, the server needs an update. I hoping in the next few weeks to push the update - which should also help a bit with the issue.
