As you all should be aware by now, we are working to resolve a technical problem with our new servers. For now we are going to halt the voting till we can get the servers back up and running. The current polls with the server settings will be implemented when the servers are brought back.

Thank you for your patience

     First, we’d like to thank all of you for your feedback, suggestions, and comments. The next step is to continue adding more options for Rosebowl, allowing the community to have even more voting options as it pertains to map rotations. We have received numerous requests to bring back Team Deathmatch, and other game types, to the voting polls. I encourage all of you that would like to see other missions added, to create a topic on our forums to discuss it. If we feel enough of the community supports it, we will add it to the polls. However, this is only part of the changes to come.

     For the time being servers Armored Fist, and Applebowl, will be taken down. The test server, as well as EU Rosebowl and US Rosebowl servers will still be available. This part of our continued pursuit to develop the most efficient system, whereby changes desired by the community can be received, processed, and then implemented. We are changing the test server run time in order to achieve more active play time for that server. It will be taken down, and only brought up for limited times so that the community can join us in testing new missions.

     It is also important to note that mission “Operation: Crossroads” has now been added to the rotations of Rosebowl. The map will also be added to the polling as well for each week.

Well our first round of polling and testing is complete. Many of you in the community have asked for various changes, and we appreciate the feedback. “Rosebowl” the new JOE server, which is also JOCAG compatible, will run a 5 map rotation. Every week a new poll will be placed on the blog, allowing community members to vote for the next 5 maps they would like to see for the following week. We can also introduce weekly server setting polls as well, I.E. killcam/tracers etc. Every Monday we will implement these changes voted on by the community.

There will be a EU and a US Rosebowl server, they will be identical to one another in both settings and map rotations. The voting will be carried out under the same polls as well. If you would like to see other maps added to the weekly polling, please create your own forum topic discussing it. Please be aware the Server will go "live" on Monday January 7th. Polling will be reset each following Monday with a new set of maps, and/or settings. We look forward to your continued testing and feedback as we further experiment new methods of serving our community,
