If you have any Funbocks-related issues, you should post them on the CJW forum. Your post is harder to miss there.

People want official maps, people get official maps. Nobody is responsible for a random rotation.

Don't like it? Get people on Beta instead.

Beta has custom maps, which is worse.. ;). Also I don't understand why Alpha has a random rotation now, it didn't before, did it? Or at least only the whole sequence of maps was random without a random chance at each map switch.

The issue for me is mostly getting the same map twice, which seems to mostly happen when server pop isn't very high (though not always), which then tends to make the server population 0, especially when its tc marshes, tc or tsa sandblasted.

In the past, random rotations on servers were used to avoid having the server start with the same map after a crash (thus if the server always crashes after x maps, all maps after that one in the rotation would never appear). But I think Funbocks Alpha runs pretty stable for a whole rotation round and it does have scheduled restarts.

My real issue is that either official maps are range-ey and annoying, or that people want to play official maps too much. No matter how crappy the lighting was, I miss underground, where LRMs were literally impossible to use (except for Brawling with them).

In all honesty, running around roflsmashing LRM boats in a gods-damned Sparkle gets boring after a while, believe it or not.

Some custom maps are quite good.  I See no reason to not include ones like tc_stonerose and have a little variety.

That's not reason, it's dogma.

Eh?  There was no belief system behind it, no texts decreeing that it should be so, and it's not been in place that long.  I suggest you read this.  I think that the reason it was set up was it is a good idea to have separate servers for Official Maps, Community Maps and Solaris arena.  If you can come up with a better idea, I'm sure that the server admins would be open to changing it.

Or, you know, you could run a server and put whatever maps you wanted on it.

Still, Jesus loves you
