Change is good indeed and should not be ignore i agree but if what you dislike in jay 1 is what make it unique , it s contradiction don t you think? One don t like the mod but enjoy it s population . Yet other server with different mod are not as popular . A lot of regular play on jay 1 even if they are far from server just soo they can use those specifics specs .
Suggesting to visit our other servers is imo a good option . One can view what s available here and there and then decide if he wants to play a chaotics server as jay 1 or a more "serious" and oriented server as silent .
As we speak, jay 1 get 30-50 players daily at all time while etpro can barely get 6vs6 . To me, that mean that average players want to use whatever weapon and still have a chance to make a kill . Numbers speaks by themself , in 2019 ET s not the same as in the early years . It s not a medic/smg anymore .
M97/knifes were just an exemple that i relate too . Same would apply to the arty user , the heavy weapon or even rnades luncher . If you feel there is a lot of them , wouldn t that mean a lot of regular like to use it?! If you reduce theses options to them, they ll be force to play smg?
At the end of the day , the good smg players usually gets the most kill out of a map. They do hate to be killed by rnade/arty/poison but like everyone , they can respawn and kill again .
