    Hello BlackWonder Staff,

    I admit I do not spend as much time on the forums like at all so if there was a vote or discussion about anything that I am going to suggest below about the server below. I do apologize however hope you still will read.

    Server: BlackWonder NYC | Hightower x10 + Crits

    Back when I first started playing on this server it was a great get away, as well as the players and the community online was fantastic. Every day I got on there were almost always 10+ players on most days the server was full, to the point where I donated just so I could get access to the server while all the non-donor spots were full. I had to take a month or two break due to school and work. I was excited to finally be able to get back on, I was going to donate again, then decided not to. When I got back on I quickly discovered that the Sticky Bomb Launcher was nerfed along with a few other weapons. As well as everyday I got on the server was never full it always had zero players online. There are a few cases where I got on and finally there were other players like 5 or 10 but they quickly would diminish.

    Then theres today, I get on grab the atomizer and that is now nerfed. My big question is, WHY? Why are all the weapons getting nerfed? As annoying as the weapons were, it is what made up the community of players that came on every day. Now none of those players are online. The other huge change is it is no longer an instant restart on the map. I don't see a need for extra time for a bloodbath when it is already a bloodbath. Unless staff come on the server just under another account or they don't have tags. I have never actually seen any staff on this server, besides 2010wolf | Blw.tf who has been very helpful for a few situations in the past.

    So my suggestion is to undo all the changes that you put in place since late September. As far as nerfing weapons go. The aesthetics of the server and the chat look great, those changes I do enjoy.

    Other factors: I do understand that the loss of players could be contributed to the release of Overwatch. However knowing that most schools across the U.S. are currently off for the holidays I would think there would still be a large number of players on the server.

    I really cant imagine how the hell is it fun to play against someone who has the booties + Quicky Launcher ...
    If the nerf didnt happen, i probably stopped playing x10 which for now is the only thing i play on Blackwonder

    It is x10 for a reason.
    ALL weapons should have x10 attributes in my opinion,
    I don't play x10 that much but the name itself says that the attributes are multiplied by 10.

    Hello, could you please provide the IP of said server. I can't really explain why things are changing, since I haven't touched the x10 configs since the server was created a year ago

    I also don't quite mean with: "The other huge change is it is no longer an instant restart on the map". All I know is that the servers are 24/7 and they restart every day at 5 am

    Yes you did... Remember how we nerfed the Quicky Launcher due to it being extremely unfunny to play against and the servers being filled with those players?

    Hello! Sorry was out for a few days for the Holidays.

    Hello Ben,

    Do apologize thought the name of the server would be all that you would need. Here is the server IP Below:

    IP:
    74.91.116.94:28002

    As for what I meant by Instant re-spawn. When I first started on the server after the game ended there was the cart explosion and then it went straight to the countdown for the round to start again. Now when the game ends it allows time for players to run around killing the loosing side before the countdown starts again. But to be clear I don't care as much about this issue, it is more the weapons getting nerfed.


    Quick Note: Got on last night the Atomizer Jumps are back as well as I believe the panic attack is back and its normal stats. The sticky bomb launcher does 0 damage.



    In response to this the Quicky bomb launcher is annoying yes, and it is very powerful. However as mentioned in another post that you linked to, the Pyro class with the Power Jack and Panic attack can easily quickly kill a Quicky bomb player. The true over powered class is the Soldier with the Battalions Backup on full charge Sticky bomb launchers hardly do if any damage to soldiers. But I am not hear to complain about that. Because they to can be killed. Whether it be with Golf Club, Back Stab, or a single back burn.

    Yeah, a Batt can be a bit mighty but its still easy to kill em... Just give em a good machina bodyshot and they are out...
    However try to give a Demoman a Headhsot or even a bodyshot with the Machina while they have the damn booties...

    I am with you on this.

    I was against the change last year. Just like I'd be against nerfing the kunai, liberty launcher, black box, panic attack scorch shot, cloaking, flamethrower airblast.....Etc etc etc.

    There were welcome changes like removig flying.
