    ..plus they know that not many really skilled players play there so they can get a decent game without being slaughtered. Even I could win games on Silver so that gives you some idea of the skill level there. Server had a lot of regulars though so it's worth keeping things more or less the same to keep the traffic. Gold for the badasses, Silver for the not-so-badass :)

    Ah, you have to let them kill you sometimes though - we need to keep them coming back to the server and give them a bit of hope :) I too would like a change from Jordan & Shop2 - it's like playing the same game of chess over and over again with the same moves.

    Many players do not have custom Maps at all, so There IS risk of traffic Lost.

    Vote was done. So it's clear as it was before that we can allow custom maps with no problem as long as we will not overuse them. Again if we allow them rationally we might experience traffic upliftment even.

    It's a risk which will be taken. Doesn't mean we gonna play any random custom map we find and leave all stock maps behind. We just allow custom maps (usually already fairly popular maps).

    I want to clarify my opinion, custom maps are ok for as long they are the popular kind, jor3, shop69, etc. The more rare they are, the riskier it is. I think we all agree to this, yes?

    You see that there is no difference between lets say jor3 and shop8 and lets say xmas-alley. Lets say that no egyptian players have any of them anyway....

    No difference? Not sure about that. jor3, shop69 and let's say subway, were part of the most popular custom maps. Lots of people had them. Can't say the same about xmas-alley.

    I think, the point here is to have custom maps, with a high probability of existing already on player's folders, to avoid having them going through the work of downloading them. I have no problem with that, but many players don't think the same way.

    I think you both mean, familiar and/or popular maps are OK, but maps like "4_side_donkey_kong" or "Forlorn_Hope-Courtyard", won't be played unless there is a really high demand for it.

    Well for example we have like 4 people saying 4sidedonkeycock_mp here they want to put on and again it would be on here for 4% of the time meaning like 10 mins out of all cycle, and if we expand the cycle one more minicycle like you even hinted above it will make it like 1-2% which is BEYOND safe for us even if like no noobs can EVER access this map. I think it is more than safe option.
