  1. Mapcore FACEIT Hubs

    One for the future, maybe.
  2. Mapcore FACEIT Hubs

    I've been thinking about an idea for running competition on the hub. Rather than competitions for players, my thoughts are competitions for maps. The basic idea is an elimination style playoff for maps, whereby players can actively choose their favourite maps to keep in the competition. Each day, two maps are played, the map with the most votes (or matches played on?) progresses to the next stage of the competition. This would allow for players to keep maps they like on the rotation for as long as possible throughout the competition, and would hopefully allow for mappers to get new insightful feedback on their maps. Rather than the usual "I like/dislike this map for this reason" I feel that it would introduce a more unique style of feedback, such as: "one of the reasons I chose de_grind over de_breach is due to it's unique style of Mid, which allows for each round to introduce various different playing styles, whereas i do not feel de_breach has its own uniqueness" as an example. It would allow players to judge maps compared to others. This could even be introduced to old operation maps, which would allow people to play old maps they haven't played in years and would be unable to play otherwise. I feel that this may also introduce many more players to the hub.

    I feel that just ensuring the tests happen when listed on the tweets would get users coming back. Constantly changing the dates due to issues may cause players to not come back

    I feel that connection times should definitely be upped, the time shouldn't be the same as it normally is when players are playing valve maps they obviously already have stored on their drives. Currently, it's hard to start games due to player's downloading the maps on game start and aren't downloading them in time. It may also be useful to suggest users to download them before hand when they begin searching for a game.
  5. Yanzl's VMT Editor is a great resource to make use of.

    Because most of the native englando speakers are too lazy to learn. Don't get me started on there, their and they're.

    I feel that it would be very beneficial for the community to be able to make use of the hub on a permanent basis. Although, I feel that active user numbers would definitely see a reduction if it was a permanent thing. Maybe the best way to go about this is to have the hub actively rotate a select number of maps, similar to how it's being implemented right now, but with monthly breaks in between to keep the players looking forward to the new maps.
  8. Site Changes and Feedback

    It's impossible to remove tags in quotes when commenting on mobile, and it also send as though it's impossible to delete the actual quote box altogether
  9. They could stream it without releasing scores. First impressions are hugely important, and seeing the judges' would be very beneficial.
  10. I wouldn't touch it until judging is over, as this is where they will be downloading the bsps from

    Cheers man! Although I wouldn't call it so much a "release", more of a "shit we need to submit this unfinished"
