I'd say limit fops to lvl 3 on oasis, so the arty is the regular one but you can still do the double airstrike. Airstrikes require more timing and skill and their duration isn't 20 seconds.

As some pointed out, playing eng smg is already impossible as it is and some td fopses acquire is due to teammates hungry for kills. When pushing out the last seconds before spawn I do not care at all if I run into an arty, I will even do it on purpose if certain fopses are spamming the same spot all game long.

Lvl3 fops = more airstrikes & artillery, lvl4 = recognize disguised enemies.

My suggestion, if you limit the fops to lvl2 fop, you should limit all classes to lvl2 class. Everyone should take a hit. In terms of team damage and recklessness.. yes limiting fops will will have the biggest positive impact and playing allies wont be a nightmare for everyone whos not very skilled. And you might create a lot of room to reduce that TD limit cap - obviously 90% of td kicks are fops related, so there is a clear problem there yeah. I still stand very strong on making that TD limit way stricter, and it probably wont look very strict anymore if everything goes down to lvl2.

Do you think anyone would even notice if you limit everything to lvl2 besides monty, qpap, veltins? Maybe you should just do that, unannounced limit. Leave it for 2 weeks, check the TD kick log and see if we've improved smth or not. I dont see the danger in testing stuff on the server for 2 weeks this way, if people are unhappy about smth they'll say it, they aint gonna quit the game thats for sure.

I'd only limit it to lvl2 if it was the 3rd map, and other admins need to agree with changing the map rotation.

Why not make oasis the first map in rotation, so all players start from 0. The order of 'nightmare' maps by difficulty for allies which heavily increases as spam increases are: 1. Oasis, 2. Fuel, 3. Goldrush. Goldrush is way more airy than either Oasis or Fuel in terms of how 'chokey' the choke points are which you have to pass to get to objective. Look at radar, bunch of lvl4 spam on it, but somehow it works, cos... airy, open, you can dodge the spam because there's enough room to do so.

> Signals Level 3: Improved Air and Ground Support - Your expertise in identifying key enemy targets is rewarded by diverting more fire support resources to your designated targets. Each Air Strike now has two aircraft incoming and each Artillery Strike lasts twice as long.

Aw fuck. The more you know :D

I would only 'fix' oasis. The fops lvl 2 nerf isn't that big a nerf considering how many people are on the server and its huge AOE, especially if you do it at the start of the campaign. What maps have the lvl2 fops atm? Just goldrush or also battery?

Goldrush and battery. Goldrush with lvl3 would be a nightmare, and battery too.

> In the past we talked about making oasis 3rd map after battery. That and limiting fop to lvl2 like on battery would probably make it less spammy.

Sounds like a good compromise.

Summary of constructive 'actions' that could be done to reduce Team Damage so far:

- reducing team damage per map (starting with oasis)

- reducing team damage overall - start from 1000 and watch the logs monthly

- reducing fops lvl (8 arty drop), per map, or overall, as it causes most of TD and results in most of TD kicks

- reducing all class-based lvls to lvl2 max

- putting it back to complaints system rather than td limit system

- combination of complaints (voting for complaint after getting tked) & damage overall reduction - cornn says undoable

- (liquid) vote on server to get players opinions

- disabling it overall

Some actions can be combined, eg. liquids vote suggestion with overall reduction to lets say 1000 + fops lvl2 max on oasis. Just giving an example.

December is a good month for gaming with holidays and all shit, if you are gonna put some of these things to action.. december is ideal to get some logs and monitor whether anything works or not.
