Do we need the skins?

Recommended Posts

Okay so this has been on my mind ever since I joined VPP server long time ago. I never liked having the !skins on the server 

1. The hitboxes for them are different from regular skins and its stupid.

2. Some people like me don't play with "show teammate equipment" less thing for me to get distracted but that's just me all preference. I can't fucking tell if its my teammate or not when I see one.

3. Some skins will blend in the background like a map with some dark spots like inferno's mexico & apts, D2's long doors, or Mirage apt's kitchen. We have skins that can easily blend

4. I feel like it kills the server performance having those skins in the game it's a 30 man server already and having those extra unnecessary pixel/graphics isn't really needed imo.

5. Some regulars don't really like them either and they get pissed off at it like me. We just wanna game and not see spiderman, a nurse, predator, bright ass Halo characters in the game.

I joined a 26 man server yesterday that I used to play on and some friends that I know on that server PM me to play and catch up and recently got populated again and let me tell you how SMOOTH their server was and it was also full and I was getting more FPS and the REG on that server felt like I was playing on a server that I didn't feel like having 45-50 ping didn't matter and it felt like I was playing with a 5 ping NY server compared to our VPP server.

 

It's just a thought.

I know people have been barely using the skins but 1 person uses it and we'll have like 4-5 people start using it.

 

Also would like to have some more map pools like the old de_cbble to be put back the new one just feels so closed off, de_season without the CHIMES FFS, de_cpl_mill, de_cpl_fire, de_cpl_strike, and etc.

We are getting a new box tomorrow or very soon due  to our current box being on her last leg. We can make the server slot smaller to 26 slots and that will make the server a lot smoother,  as for the skins we most likely  won't remove that since we had that since day 1 of our csgo which is  about 6 years ago .  I believe there's a command on the client side to turn those skins off where you don't have to see them.

Oh okay that's good let's keep the 30 slots server and see how it handles it since its gonna be a new box.

I think making it 26 slots is okay but we have a lot of regulars. So let's keep it at 30 for now unless you're planning on opening a 2nd server and see how populated it gets for like a week and decide.

we actually have 2 other servers, 1 in NY , and 1 in Cali but its mostly empty now. Most normal pub servers besides surf and zombies mod servers are empty now due to everybody playing on Valve's servers.
