Would you rather playtime be decreased or the usual?

    Lately I've been noticing a lot of !rtving in the last 5 or 10 minuets of a map. I personally think playing the same map for 30 minutes straight is boring as hell now that ive been playing on Arcadia on and off for a few years and we play the same rotation of maps the entire time its just not as fun anymore.

    I'm curious on who else finds the lengths of each map a pain or if it doesn't really bother to many others?

    I think a sort of system needs to be created so its more likely to show maps that haven't been played in a while. Not sure how this would be set up but i feel it would stop showing the same maps over and over again. I also believe 30 mins is a bit too long

    Back on KS we had 20 minutes/6 rounds and it felt perfect, wouldn't mind having something like that again.

    They'd only need to change a single digit in a config file to increase map cooldown iirc, would definitely be a good change.

    Wouldn't mind seeing this changed myself, even 5 minutes less would do a world of good in my opinion. Towards the ends of maps is when I most commonly notice server population drop. 20 minutes/6 rounds sounds pretty good to me.

    I don't honestly mind but a lot of people do it just because it is the end of a map

    I think hiding peoples votes while they are ongoing would help the give mind mentality we see, where normally the first person to vote decides the map. I also love the 20min/6 round idea. Another thing I wouldn't mind seeing is keeping a map out of rotation for 10-15 maps so we don't see the same map fives times a day. Especially if time per map is reduced.

    But there are really popular and fun maps that most people enjoy playing multiple times in a day

    I have to admit.
    I'm a chronic RTVer.
    30mins is quite long, especially on a boring map like hairyhouse.
    Would like it to be shortened a little.

    Wouldn’t be against a change like this if people want it but the main reason for the increased RTV is because of teething issues with new maps I believe.

    Personally I think 30 minutes is a stretch and I would love to see it to be shortened. As Rysta stated 20 mins/6 round maps would be almost perfect.
