    Ok, I am getting a bit tired of ending up playing the exact same maps whenever I join the server these days.....
    Due to circumstances I am only able to play between 7pm and 10pm usually and because of the mapcycle I end up playing the same maps every night - once over you would end up playing different maps even if you could only play at the same time each night but these days it is getting boring

    Is it possible to stagger the map rotation start time or do something so that those of us that are restricted to certain times for playing or does the mapcycle only contain about 6 maps these days.....? :sigh:

    15 maps, 20 mins per map, that gives five hours to run full cycle. Server normally gets the bulk of its traffic at around 6-7pm so that allows all the maps to be played during the evening. We cant set it any other way regarding start time as there are too many variables, like updates, server rebooting (scheduled or otherwise). If players join earlier in the day and then the server empties, when it fills up later this also changes what map you may happen to find when you join the server.


    However, assuming Valve lay off the plugin breaking OB updates long enough for us to get everything updated and stable we will run different profiles throughout the month so it wont be the same mapcycle day in, day out.



    tl;dr

    We cannot customize the cycle to suit the times any given individual may or may not choose to join the server for obvious reasons.

    I've wanted to chop map time down to 15 mins as that would mean we play more of the cycle but last time I tried that setting the server had a hissy fit and we don't know why.
