played this mod though for quite a few years. actually since version 4.33. and played on many different servers and in my experience the major attribute of any server; what actually makes a good server is players who get along with each other, players who take the time to chat or even just say 'hi'.
this is called friendliness...quite simple isn't it???
maybe not depending on your personality type, however i think the whole idea of playing online is there are other people out there.
no one is obligated to chat, no one can force anyone to chat, that being the case if you are online you are there because others are there. if you want no contact with others, set up a lan server and play alone with no access by other players allowed? Yes?
i like a friendly server where other players at least take the time to say 'hi' or 'hello' or whatever to each other.
maybe other players don't, which is ok, but then why even play on an open server?
defeats the purpose doesn't it?
just my opinion.
by the way, 'hi' to you all.
