Suggestion for meeting time(s)

If we could make a conscious effort to actually meet AT the times (or make modifications to those times) it will increase the "fun" we could have. I noticed Friday people were on at 9PM but when 10PM rolled around there were only 2 of us. I realize this will take some getting used to, but having everyone meet at the same time increases the odds of having enough players to have a real game like we've only managed a few times in the past.

Also, do you think 6 minimum players is too much? I hate bots and the autobalancing may be too high but with CTF the more players (even bots) the better... kinda catch 22

I hate the Bots with a passion. They are too d@nm smart. Makes for some hard going when it's just you there and 5 bots. I really hate the one that tells me to take the point all of the time.
They are a bunch of pushy, wining, agravating @&#!'s.

I guess you know how I voted.

In time your attitude will change... bots are actually very stoopid creatures and deserve to be exterminated as much as possible from the game... based on the repsonses to the poll I lowered our bot count/minimum players to 4.

Bots are very consistant in there game play, as there actions are not subject to human error. They simply hit the target they are shooting at X% of the time and miss the rest, add to this that they play with no stratagy, make no attempt to anticipate an opponents next move, and do not progressively adapt there game play, and you quickly see how "stupid" they are. Really they are not stupid, but rather "inhuman" . . .

I am more concerned with their inability to capture a flag on their own, most get smacked down too easy to be of any real use in an attack, hence worthless to me.

I actually had a bot that was kickin butt getting the flag. She was one bad babe. She is also the only one who has ever been useful to me in a game.

Right, the exception rather than the rule, the server assigns the strengths based on several settings, all of which I can modify in the user.ini file, but the general setting in the server console is vague at best (skilled, master, godlike) and doesn't really apply to all the bots' strengths...

Anyway, they're not nearly as fun as people!!

They are zero ping, it sucks so bad! I could kill those bots in my sleep if I had zero ping. Really makes me mad, LOL
