Hi all! :D

I have composed a "short list" of ESWC, ESL, and ET 100k maps (294 total, I think) zipped and placed them on FileDen. :thumbsup:

You can download the pack here: 100k TrackMania Maps.zip. Size is 5.4 Megs. (not too compressed)

But remember, my download space on FileDen is limited, so don't ask me to reload, you will have to wait till the end of the month to d/l if my bandwidth is maxed out, so get 'em fast and...

Enjoy! :lovetm

14 Maps are a good number as maximum. You can train them and 14 are not too much.
More maps are not fair - you know them and drive them for years (months) and other players dont have any possibility to get points on those maps - but if there are "just" 14 maps you can train them in a few weeks.



=)
So this Server are breaking a rule.39 Maps during Roc Time.Do you think this is fair ? Where are the Ladder Moderators to stop this ?

You are kidding arent you :ftw: ? Of course you can stop this :roflol: At least set the server back to 50K and you will see how fast the Server Admin can reduce the number of available Maps during the Roc Time :grmblz:

Why should other Server Admin respect the rule of maximum 15 Map Rotation during Roc Time if you ignore this in Chase of one of your best friends ? .What's your Job as Ladder Moderator ? .Ignore your own words if you see a Server that doesn't respect a Server Rule ? You even don't take the time to check if these Maps are validated or not,are you ? Once again my Question.What's the Job of a Ladder Moderator if you don't take care of this ?

Hi,

first of all, sure I can stop this, just pressing the button to disconnect the srver from ladder and fall it back to 0/50k mode. Sure I can. But what is this? Then I must everytime, when s.o. has a few failings with his server , then I have to close it immidiatly? I think this isn't very fair. So I proov first what you said and then, when I have my own opinion of this, I will act perhaps as you wnat or perhaps not. It is just that I cannot act without having any idea of this situation, right?

So, please give me the time to check this.

And by the way, I am no friend of the team "Rasta" - I never was, but I am no enemie of them and they arent enemie of me. However, in my Job as Ladder Moderator I have to see this nutral, even if I were friends with them. In my time in the zero clan (I am not any more..), I also had to close a server of them, even I am friends with them..I hope you understand.

Okay, whaty my Job or "Whats the Job of an Ladder Moderator?":
I already said a big part of it, which is in contrast to your opinion:
-Our Job is to proov your issues, to proov , if it is warrented or not.
-Our Job is to tell the server owner, what was wrong and to inform them about the rules sometimes
-Our Job is to close server not respecting the rules - if we really know that they arent respecting, not if we just "think" that they dont <--Here we are at the moment
-Our Job is to arrange between players, espacially in the case of issues depending servers...
-Short said: We proove that playing is fair for everyone, that boosting isnt possible etc. - those are the points for which the new ladder was made since the old tmu and tmn - our job is to check if everyone is respectign this - then fairplay is possible...

However - let me try to check this and give the serveradmin a little time to change his mappack. It woudln't be fair just to close. Just image what you would say if you were the admin of this server...you were not happy if I would close an dsay then "too many maps" ;)

So I first inform him. If the problem stays to next sunday - I will close :)

Cheers :1

Are you sure this in an official rule by nadeo? This sounds more like a suggestion. There's nothing on the player page about the minimum or maximum number of maps during RoC, so we should wait for an official statement by Alinoa about that before taking any further action on servers which have "too many" maps.
