[Ignore] Remove Campbell's minimum player count.

Postby Jack7D1 » Fri Jul 31, 2020 12:02 pm #571140

Campbell currently requires 10 players to be online for a round to begin.
This acts as a massive roadblock to anyone wanting to play, since people will often just leave to go play on Manuel since Campbell is stuck in the lobby. Resulting in the player count never reaching 10. And rounds rarely, if ever, actually starting.

I didn't even know this was a thing and I think it's completely ridiculous. You can't force a minimum pop to a server that just came to be and has to build said pop, it should grow naturally and gradually. Otherwise as Jack says, players will be heavily deterred to join if they can't get on the station from the get-go.
You stole the item he cannot renew while your arts n crafts are theoretically unlimited, is it that hard to understand?

Is this some kind of bad joke?

P.S. I just latejoined 143228 on Campbell, everyone is dead and arrivals is breached. Looked like someone joined it and murderboned everyone. There's traitorhop in report. Maybe start with admins joining server? Campbell currently gives me strong eventhall vibes.

EDIT: Actually, round did start properly with only me in lobby. Bad joke detected.
EDIT: "As this station was initially staffed with a full crew, only your job's necessities have been added to your ID card." - on empty station
