Sounds like a very good idea, will it run the same admin mod that 22nd did? Namely with the side swapping and defender lives features as I found that made siege far more enjoyable.

Edit: Also class limits?

Yeah I wouldn't mind seeing some of them return, some of them I think you could forget about, the really big helms deep one isn't much fun and neither is the one with the wooden fort in the middle of the forest, both have stupidly long travel times for attackers.

Ideally I also found it was far more enjoyable to have a certain amount of lives as defenders. It stops the majority of defenders simply rushing out and killing people at the spawn and makes the defender very much value each of their lives.

Also class limits?

I think the old 22nd Siege server had class limits. I would support the idea of having them, as it would stop 'as much,' archer spam as defenders for example. I hope it will be implemented.

Oh I agree. There won't be a guarantee that all will return, but we plan to keep the popular and well balanced maps.

Yes! I love siege :)

THAT IS NOT A QUESTION! *Pulls out shotgun*  :mrgreen:

Edit: Added a FAQ to the opening post. Will add more questions later.

I have a few questions:

- Where will the server be located?
- Teamkills: will you remove teamkills by changing the percentage at the Administrator Panel?
- How many admins are you looking for? 22nd_Siege had many admins, but only a few actually played on the server.
- *Links with the question above* If admins don't visit the server when they supposed to, how will you solve that problem?

On the closing note: Great idea! I will be certainly visiting :)

- Where will the server be located?

The server will most likely be hosted in Paris or in the Netherlands. I am thinking of hosting it in Germany but having a server which is at least playable by Americans, really sticks in my mind. Though I really want this server to be for everyone, whilst having a playable ping.

- Teamkills: will you remove teamkills by changing the percentage at the Administrator Panel?

Team kills will occur. Reflective damage IS a pain in the arse, because we all make mistakes when we play, I'd rather not punish that. Instead, if you do team kill a player, just like the old 22nd siege server, you hand over a life to the guy you team killed. Damage dealt to a team mate will not be at 100%, but at more forgiving 50%

Any one who persistently team kills will be dealt with quickly. It's not a huge problem.

- How many admins are you looking for? 22nd_Siege had many admins, but only a few actually played on the server.

I haven't actually set a limit on how many admins we will have. Its a large server, there will need to be a decent amount of admins. Wolfpack are still fairly active in the Warband, Native scene, you will be seeing a number of them, however we will have "public admins." Any admin recruiting will take place on our forums, where more details will follow. But we will just take on anyone, it helps if you are active in the Warband scene, preferably Native and knows the community well enough.

- *Links with the question above* If admins don't visit the server when they supposed to, how will you solve that problem?

Ah, well there will not be a rota for admins for when they should be on the server. The chances are that there is going to be a certain time during the day when admins wont be on... Wolfpack is largely EU based, and many other public admins could largely be EU too, its an EU server so it's to be expected.

Even if you are from the US or Canada, you can still apply and the more we have, the better.

I wouldn't think it as too much of a problem that the server at some points during the day will be admin'less'. I trust that the majority of players will just play on, and if there is trouble, you can post here, or write a complaint on our forums, and our admins will be right on the job.

Thanks :)

Well, I know the 22nd siege server settings weren't to everyone's taste originally, chances are that it will be different.

Hey-ho, write suggestions! I'm more than open to listen and discuss any newer or current ideas.
