As per popular demand,  I have now created a topic to lay out the rules for Zombie mode.

For starters, can someone list the rules for zombie mode?

Since no one has given any rules, I'ma list what I've picked up. This is a list strictly up for debate. It is in no way indicative of MI's stance on the rules.

1. Zombies shall only use handheld weapons - Knife, Defibrillator, and Repair Torch
2. Humans shall not use explosives.

3. Humans will not jump to areas that cannot be reached by zombies. (How we determine what "cannot be reached" needs some discussion, but it is one of the main issues players have expressed)

4. Zombies shall not use med packs. Because they are dead. They cannot heal.

This is, once again, just a list to get things started. I would appreciate debate on this topic, so that event nights to not fade away to nothing due to lack of participation. If you have extra rules or an issue with the rules posted, let me know.

I had no idea that you had posted this topic, sorry for not getting back to you a little faster about the rules.

Everything you outlined sounds about right. I will see if we can turn medpacks off for zombies on the Procon plugin.

Definitely #3 needs to be enforced.

Remember the point of this game mode is to have fun. So when people play in a way that is not fun for half the players, they are essentially griefing. Zombies should not have to "figure out" a way to get to the humans, that unfairly weights the game to the human side, and it becomes "who can get to that one spot in the map where zombies can't get to".

There should be a way for the zombies to win, so it's humans vs zombies instead of "who can be the last human alive".

Zombies MAY use med kits. If they have the ability and the where-with-all to break off an attack and retreat to a safe area to heal, they may do so. Shame on the humans for not attacking them and denying them the opportunity.

1. Zombies shall use only melee weapons. Knife, Torch, Defib.
2. Humans shall not use any explosive device. No grenades, rockets, M320, C4, UAV etc.
3. Humans shall not retreat to areas not accessible to Zombies. Admins judgement.
4. All participants must be in Team Speak.

One of the issues is the base start up settings on the server. Before the next event I'll update which unlocks are available. Can set it to all or based off the persons unlocks. Right now it is based off the inherent sides weapons and only a few gadgets per a weapon which is probably causing rhe confusion.

How about a way for the zombies to win? Currently only one human can win, and it should be more of a team effort to keep everyone alive rather than "who can outlast everyone else".

The point of the game is to see who the best survivor is/teamwork. Zombies never actually win.

If Prop sets the server to use a players unlocks, then the zombie plug-in can choose which ones we allow in zombie mode. The plug-in can also be set up to allow zombies to win if that's what we want to do.

If in the Admins judgement, the human(s) has gained an unfair advantage, he can ask the human(s) to leave that area.  If the human(s) fail to do that, the admin can kill and/or switch the offending human(s) to the zombie team.
NOTE:  The admin may do this not only in the interest of fair play but also to address game play continuity concerns.

I think we need to find a balance between how much damage humans do, and what spots they can use. The more damage they do the less leniency for spots that are hard to access. We didn't have an issue at all last year, seems we add some people and they stir it up.

I personally do not think there are any issues except the ones fabricated by those that are impatient and/or chronic complainers. It will all work out. Admins are learning as we go what works and what doesn't. Just give it time.

If there were a real issue we wouldn't have 32 plus show up.

The only way to make the zombies win is have it on a time limit not on kills and make the humans not idle for long time and has to shoot a zombie within a time limit ..

Cant' the zombies win by... killing all the humans? And the humans win by killing a pre-determined number of zombies?

the human always win because if it don't come down to last man standing its humans get the number of kills they need to win. zombies have no chance to win so do some thing like a time limit and if the zombies don't win then its the top ( zombie killer ) to win. that stop ppl for going into a corner the whole game and winning ...

As of right now Zombies don't win. The game is basically either Humans get X amount of kills or the last human standing wins.

Zombies shouldn't win. They are mindless, they just want brains.

he's a man flasher!
Motorcharge 18th Sep
It's not the first time that dude has done that. He'll also find people who use mortars and switch to Support so he can constantly throw flashbangs at them so they can't use them.

Nice, thank you sir!!

Definitely agree about the player report concerning "fckingsuch1". The guy was a total clown, tking and griefing in base. Lasted for several rounds as well, thanks.

i had around 3 coins, sold them when they were around 42xx somehting
TwinGunsLLP 15th Sep
True true, a bit of a rally today. I mean none of us who got in "early" can complain though, it's still been a great investment. Unless you bought over $3500 you're not a bag holder. Time will tell, good luck all!
PrOpR1oCePtIoN 15th Sep
Should have sold coins a while ago. They had been talking about it for a while. And with N. Korea hacking specifically to steal bit coins, more fallout likely to come.
