Introducing Tiered Reserved Slots!

Post by bl4nk » Mon Aug 26, 2013 11:03 am

From this point forward, we now have different "levels" of reserved slots:
Admins* > Donors > Free reserved slots > Normal players

This means that if the server is full with normal reserved slot players, and you're a donor (or admin*), you can still get in the server. This gives donors a "priority" slot, that basically guarantees that they'll always be able to play on our servers due to them supporting us.

* As for the admins, only X amount of admins will be given "admin slots". Once that amount has been reached, any connecting admin will be treated as having a normal reserved slot (or a donor priority slot if they've donated).

We're still using the same reserved slot system I created a few months back, but just tweaked it to select from the proper group of players instead of selecting from anyone who doesn't have a reserved slot.

Any problems, comments, suggestions, feedback, whatever please post here about it. Thanks, and enjoy. :)

Sounds good to me (yaaay being a donor \o/ )

"OK, try to imagine yourself in the J2 Server... You get your first look at this "Pinkle" as you enter a clearing. She moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing her flamethrower. And you keep still because you think that maybe her visual acuity is based on movement like Johnny5 - She'll lose you if you don't move. But no, not Pinkle. You stare at her, and she just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side, from the Hippie and Wolsky you didn't even know were there. Because Pinkle's a pack hunter, you see, she uses coordinated attack patterns and she is out in force today. And he slashes at you with this... A barbed-wired-wrapped fire axe, The Axetinguisher, in her left hand. She doesn't bother to headshot you like a Porkbun, say... no no. She lights you and slashes at you here, or here... Or maybe across the belly, critting your intestines. The point is, you are alive when she starts to rape you. So you know, try to show a little respect..." -- 3Ducks

In reality, the best sex results from good communication and planning; like a Rainbow 6 mission.

How can you tell what type of reserve slot that you have?

By comparing yourself against the listed tiers?

Are you an admin?

If yes, you have an admin slot.

If no, are you a donor?

If yes, you have a donor slot.

If no, did you request and were you granted a reserve slot?

If yes, then you have a free reserved slot.

Else, you're a normal player.

I think he's wondering if there's any difference between a trial admin and a full admin reserve slot wise.
