    We have the first map that was ever used on WarZ on hand. Even though I think it's really bad, you all apparently want to play on it! So... What do you all want to see us do with the map?

    Sadly we do not have any of the other server files, so we can't do anything regarding old data or plugins.

    Maybe gear your ideas into ways to bring people back while paying server expenses.

    Thanks,
    chickenputty

    It was fun and all but I'd rather have the bugs fixed rather than playing the first map

    Disclaimer: Putty please read this whole post, I put a lot of thought and effort into this.

    ^^
    Fix the two main bugs first, as I specified on your other thread, then do this.

    I do however have an idea of a sort of event that would involve this old map, to bring players back. It wouldn't pay server expenses but it MIGHT just bring enough people back so that you could actually start making more money on a system like Lives or the Boosters.

    You give players a week or two notice and encourage everyone to bring back every old player they know. And then one weekend, say three or four weeks from now, you have a WarZ Revival Week. What this entails is the following:

    • You set up 9 completely new servers, 3 of each map. I feel like the first map might attract some of the oldest veterans of WarZ.
    • Everyone has ELITE. This is an absolute must.
    • Everyone's loot has been cleared but everyone starts with full iron a basic set of everything they need (maybe tier 4 guns, bandages bones, food, ammo, grapple, etc.) and are spawned randomly around the map.
    • Every town is turned into a Zone 6.
    • A team of moderators are recruited specifically for this event to minimize the roaming speed hackers. This team could largely be made up of ex-moderators. Mods are encouraged to TPA players back and give them their loot if they died to hackers, if possible.
    • Players are encouraged to /report or record and upload hackers. If a hacker is banned by a moderator alerted by /report, the player who reported them gets 50 vote tokens. If a hacker is banned by a video report, the player gets 100 vote tokens.
    • Airdrops have a 100% chance of spawning every 10 minutes if a server has over 12 players. (Numbers are up for change)
    In addition, and this is an optional random thought I had, perhaps players are given some kind of bonus, probably in vote tokens and/or loot for bringing back older players.

    Another thought I had was that instead of this event lasting for a weekend or a week, as I put above, the length could be dependent on the number of players. The following message is broadcasted throughout chat: If WarZ hits X people today, this event continues for another day!" The number is up for deliberation but I thought it could start at 100 and go up 20 players a day maybe.

    Perhaps there could also be announcements broadcasted in chat like "Enjoy this event? This is what WarZ could be if you stick around and buy boosters/lives/whatever!"

    At the end of the event, free ELITE, every town being Zone 6, bonuses for catching hackers and extra airdrops disappear. Players are now encouraged to buy boosters and I think it would be a great idea if the staff organised some kind of roster for boosters to try and ensure that there is some kind of booster on WarZ most of the time. Similarly, rather than using a plugin like /team to combat large teams I think it should be the responsibility of a senior staff member to take concerns of players that a certain team is just ruling the server with numbers and that staff member makes a thread encouraging players to band together and defeat this team, so that they don't make the game an unpleasant experience for everyone else.

    And lastly, of the temporary moderators who were promoted for the event, the ones who have proved themselves trustworthy and active are permanently promoted to WarZ moderator.

    P.S. I realise this only minimally involves the first map but the almighty putty told me to gear my ideas so I geared 'em hard :v

    All I must say, is BRING IT BACK.

    I have beena fellow WarZ vereran since the first map's release, but i quickly lost interest after the new maps were released. And try and keep it as nostalgic as possible. If there is ANY way, it would be awesome if:

    1) Compasses aren't considered rare items (ONLY to the old servers)

    2) Comboing isn't possible. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think comboing was existant in the first map because of just Minecraft in general, or because no one knew about it. Besides, I find comboing efficient, but not really fun. A cooldown for each weapon would be cool after shooting to refrain combos. That's just my opinion.

    As @ChikenFriedReich said, You could add more servers and have 2 of each map going. My suggestion is you add 1 more server to make 5 and have 2 old servers.

    its just basic stuff.. /friends is broken Grenades dont work and some other stuff I cant think of right now

    Grapples occasionally break

    Also having some staff would be nice.. most of the remaining players are hackers and there is no one to ban them

    I'm doing my best but I can't always be online, Wario and cloudy are on vacation... Also yes, /friend is broken in WarZ, you have to relog from the server every time you want to friend or unfriend someone.

    What if there was one premium server where the old map was played? Most players who are inexperienced with WarZ probably don't care about playing on old maps, whereas people who play a lot and are likely to donate probably would be interested in playing on the old map. I'd say it should come with MVP+, or you could buy access to it separately for $15 forever, or $3 a month.

    Only issue is, there may not be enough players for this. I'm not sure how player counts are currently or will be when 2.0 is out, so this may or may not be an issue.

    A few ideas:

    1. Set up a server and make the old map playable again.

    2. Make it exclusive (or a closed beta/alpha/early access) for donators. Pay2Play is allowed.

    3. Use it for a timed event (this would be great since no one really knows the first map) which requires a full map.

    4. Use it for a PvE server (I'm obviously biased with this choice).

    5. Remake the map, rebalance it and incorporate it into WarZ 2.0 (either parts of it or the whole map).

    6. Make a new server or an idea out of it. Go crazy. Maybe try to turn it into a MMO/RPG map?

    Love the idea, and would definitely play, but I know I would just get dropped by the 50 man teams in WarZ

    1) Yes.
    2) No. Popularity would be dead. The plan is to bring back players, mostly veterans who LOVED this man, like me.
    3) Not sure about this.
    4) Not sure.
    5) NO NO NO. Horrible idea. If this is the first "old school map", then keep it old school. I literally mean it. I want gun damage from then to be how it was then. AK was most OP, I want it to stay most op. If it's possible, maybe comboing can't happen? When I was around during the beginning lf the map's release, nobody combo'd, and it was fun. All I say is try to make it original as possible. I would hate to see the first map but just the same layout of plugins/functions.

    (Sorry for being so late)
    I think this is good, but maybe not MVP+, maybe VIP+, and $15 is ridiculous, $5 forever would be better, without a monthly option.

    I think $15 is fair enough for a classic map. A lot of people donated $120 for permanent MVP with tpa, so I think people would be willing to pay $15 to play on an old map with more regulars.

    I would love to see the Oldschool Map back.. was a great time.
    Right now its just almost impossible to gear up because everywhere a donor-team comes to kill you, not caring what you even got and mostly hunt you down even if you just spawned. There wasn't such a problem on the old map because it was just big enough so you could atleast gear up and THEN go and fight
