      Activity Poll March 2017

      Would you miss something? 45
      1.  
        I would MISS Carball (18) 40%
      2.  
        I would MISS United (12) 27%
      3.  
        I would NEITHER miss United NOR Carball (9) 20%
      4.  
        I would MISS BOTH United AND Carball (6) 13%
      Hello users, members, players, cats, ponies and so on.

      Imagine United or Carball got closed/taken down. Would you miss them? Or the other way round: Are you still playing regularly and would like to continue doing so? (No conditions here, pretend as if there will never be any update at all)

      Please also drop some names here of players you know that play regularly or sometimes, but don't read/write in the forum (you can't vote for them of course).
      Snowy plays regularly but doesn't often check the forum.

      On the other hand if both United and Carball would be taken down, I would miss Carball but I do think they'd be better closed down than in the actual condition with the current players and the current management.

      Thanks to @Rio for the signature.
      I was really active before the whole Neon United thing and i have to say that it's really sad to see this happening. Neon was my favourite MTA community, made a lot of new friends etc. I had always have enjoyed all the time i spent on your servers and the time spent chilling with co-members.

      Thanks for the memories,

      I'm going to make it easy for myself, I know you would like to pull the plug out of it and the behaviour of some of the members and section leaders is really bad and that's where you should be cleaning up. Keep carball open and refresh the people, if they cannot behave simply kick them out. The player count did drop but I also noticed a few more new players lately which like to play on carball a lot. Anyhow, I'm going to quote a messafe from Frenk who literally says all there has to be said and I agree for 100% with him. Frenk you did surprise me with such an mature reply and people should reply more often in such way.


      This is kinda retarded, i played on this server for around 3 years and in that time little/none updates have been done. But i kept playing on this server because the gamemode is simply awesome. Yes i rather had some updates on the server to make it better but as the admins said enough times , that there will be no update. I enjoy playing carball the way it is and i like to play with the people on there. I dont know where these 'closing carball' references come from but in my opinion it would be a stupid decision to close such an awesome game mode.
      Don't get me wrong, I personally don't want to close any server. For me there is no disadvantage in leaving them running atm. I'd leave them running for you, if you still want to play.

      But I don't have any information about active player count or interest, that's why I started this vote. So please go on posting your opinions on this.
      I can just repeat Frenk's words. Im playing Carball since 2013 and its still one of my favorite games. With Carball i connect many nice moments ingame and with the community. It would be pretty sad to see it getting closed. Like Frenk said, updates would be nice but there simply wont be big ones in near future same as in past. But we still managed to keep this server alive by creating tournaments clubs... and had/have fun with it.

      I would miss both but for the biggest part of nostalgia Carball.
      Most other gamemodes are to be found on other servers and as we all know... United is still a buggy piece of ****. However I would still miss that as well. Sumo and Neon fun were always great ways of killing time. Still nobody has beaten my top-time in Tetris!! ha! :allthethings: :challengeaccepted:

      I've always had lots of fun playing MTA and I still do... but I've lost most interest in it, though sometimes when I'm really bored I like to go there and I visit carball and United. But also FFS because I'm a badass in shooter :bitchplease:

      I don't agree to the aging community of MTA because there are still plenty youngbloods out there. And for what I'm understanding is that more and more people have access to okay computers so GTA:SA is playable on much crappier pc's than newer games making MTA:SA still fairly popular amongst many players.
      It might be on its way to retirement but I don't think it goes as fast as some players are pointing out it to be.

      If money would be the issue then I would say: DROP IT because 99% of the payments are coming from people NOT playing MTA, which would mean everyone is lucky to even play the gamemodes offered.
      Luckily that isn't the case so we can actually keep up these servers.

      So considering above points I would see no reason why to use ye olde "KILL SWITCH right now. But maybe when GTA:V gets an option where dedicated servers would be build or other games come along that take more interest of people than MTA it would be better to put our resources to good use.



      tl'dr: Don't kill United/Carball I'm not ready yet :cry:

      For me, the people playing makes me go and play a bit sometimes.

      The game became worse and worse being compared to the games I played in the recent weeks. MTA for me is now only installed on my computer because of Neon.

      If Carball or United was closed, I'd miss the gameplay a bit, too though.

      Well, I played carball before it was public. I could keep beating about the bush but to make it simple - please don't close it. At certain times, there are loads of players still playing it. At least for as long as it does not disturb any other use of the server... There's no harm in keeping it online.

      Its difficult for me to say if i miss United or not. Carball was part of it for 2 years? or something but with specific gamemodes beside Carball i dont really associate something.

      Long time no see,

      Don't get me wrong, but since this competitive shit ( League ) I really dont enjoy carball anymore.
      I don't want to hate the people who invented that, so dont be that salty please.

      This events should be something special, and not every weekend. I have lots of stuff to do, and playing Carball for a fixed time is just not right. Then I got hated because I just can not plan something like this. I personally never know when they need me at work or someone else needs me in reallife.

      Just remember the Tournaments. We had a plenty of players that were enjoying this game. It just was so special to participate in things like that. Even the server lagged because many players were playing. That are the things I miss the most. It just makes me sad seeing carball die out.

      In my eyes this system just wrecked carball. Not more, not less.
      I hope I changed some minds ( lul ) and we all will go back to the roots.

      Lets be honest, I don't think that I am the only one who thinks like me.


      Good Night.

      Hello, Ralle.

      I am gonna start with the fact that I am also working and studying (not on a full-time education). So pointing out the league format and saying that it makes Carball unenjoyable, just because it's every week, is dumb. But yes, not everyone can have a flexible schedule and fixed one. So I understand you, because I've been in the same situation. But this is your personal problem. People enjoy a league format much more than a regular tournament, because it's on a weekly basis. It's like having tournaments every week. One thing is sure, league format does not make Carball more unenjoyable, just the opposite. I guarantee you that. I remember that everyone wished for a league before the 1st season itself and I've explained many many times why this format is much better than a regular tournament. The things you've pointed out - a full, crowded server, well, you said it, not me - can result a massive lag. Nowadays, lag interferes the game more, lag makes players angry, nervous and so on. And another thing about the league is the one who's arranging your day and time to play, is you and only you (the 2 teams). I know it can also be hard for you (or someone else) to be there, but that's much better than having a fixed weekend and playing ALL the matches. Because this is what you're talking about - the past. You've never organised a tournament (if I remember right) and you don't know what mess it can be - especially when you're making it in one weekend. So don't get me wrong. Once again, I understand you with your messy schedule and not being able to play, but I am just saying that the league format can be only a plus for Carball.

      We dont force anyone to participate at the League, we just ask and are happy to find clubs who like to participate and usually almost all clubs are interrested in participating.

      Between the Leagues 2 & 3 and 3 & 4 were Tournaments but there were not that much clubs which participated like in the League.

      League 1 : 25.January.2015 - 12.April.2015
      League 2: 19.December.2015 - 7.March.2016
      League 3: 15.June 2016 - 25.September.2016
      Season 4: 27.March.2017 - ?.?.2017

      Since the last League have passed about 6 months, in my opinion the League (now Season) is still rare and not too often.

      Then dont participate as a Leader if u have issues with setting matches up. Join as a Member a club and play the matches when you can.

      And you think if there is no League/Season the 40 daily players return like in the good old times? If you dont like the League, then dont participate. You can still just join Carball and play normal matches against other guys.

      The Season gives the players in my opinion more motivation to play online to improve so they win these matches for their club. There are atm more active players than before the 4th Season was mentioned.

      Best Regards
