How do you guys want to play the new map?

Poll ended at Sun Nov 08, 2015 10:50 pm

Basic survival: we play the game as we do presently, just with the new custom terrain, no organization whatsoever
1
8%
Towns/PvP: Players break off and group to form their own towns, and may choose to wage war or trade with each other, similarly to the survival server than ran immediately after season 2.
9
69%
Guided PvP/Lore/distinct nations: We run the server with the new terrain similarly to Season 2.5 with set nations similar to Astracarn, Garrodum, and the Mavi, we hold weekly contests between nations to build towns/gather resources, and use these contests as the basis for testing plugins (e.g., hypothetical instanced building competitions). PvP and raiding are encouraged, damage is mitigated via Towny/claiming.

Hey guys, so it's come to my attention that some of us are divided on how we want to play on Gigyas' server. I was under the impression that we would be playing in such a way as to revive the nations/raiding activities against each others' nations, to help get back into the swing of things for Season 3's eventual release, but other have expressed different Opinions, So I'm putting it to a vote. As the new map stands, it's a 2500-block diameter circle, with 4 distinct biomes divided by mountain ranges, with some custom resource allocation implemented to foster travel/raiding between biomes. I intended for this map to be played in a style similarly to that of 2.5, with 3-4 nations fighting for control of the land, but my concern is that we don't have a playerbase large enough to support full-blown nations at this stage, though I think more lurkers may surface once this gets underway. but what do you guys think? How do you want to play? The poll runs till Sunday.

Players who have expressed interest in a N@W only server recently (past few weeks), if I've missed you, speak up!

I'm from season 2, so I've got a lot of desire to see that in action again.

That being said, even with player-run nations and towns, I'd still like to run RP events and such for you folks. It wouldn't be very interesting if nothing ever happened. Player-based conflicts are great, but only a portion of the equation.

I want the second option, but with a minimum requirement of founding members (like 5 or so).

This sounds good, it solves the problem of season 2 which had countless 2-3 member nations.

Because of our limited playerbase, I think we'll make a rule where you need at least 3 but not more than 4 people to form a town and claim land, it'll have to be self-enforced though. We'll probably raise the numbers later if this thing gets any kind of popularity.

I have been long time inactive and visit here once every few months if I suddenly remember again of it's existence.
I would really love to still play this server, as someone that only played during the 2.5S, I wouldn't mind something similar or maybe just a much more simpler version of N@W. I would just love to play no matter how big/small it will be.

I think having the same similar setup as S2.5 with four nations would be good enough, or having people create their own with 4-5 founding members (In the hope that we won't have a lot of 3 people groups, and more bigger ones).

Anyway, just wanted to show that I and probably others still look forward to this server, whenever it might launch, or should I say if...

No if.
It's up. It's up literally right now.
It's been up.
And as long as I have a say in it, it's gonna keep being up.

The only thing we're waiting on now is the finalization of the map and some plugins. But that doesn't stop folks from getting into groups and playing with what's already here. The rest is just going to be implemented a bit more slowly - consistent steps over a longer period of time.

Slight delay on that note, I'm working out some kinks with the cave layers. Map will be complete today or tomorrow.

EDIT: Caves complete, resources have been assigned to all biomes, I'm adding in vegetation, then it'll be done!
