Post TnB TF2 SERVER NEEDS ADMINS AND PLAYERS
Ok, I want to get a team together if thats ok with you guys.

Need:
- Some admins that know or want to learn rcon (it's not that hard I hear) [Start here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HLSW] and here [http://www.hlsw.net/]
- Some players that want to promote and get the server populated.
- Some players that want to just come and have a good time.

The server is already setup on a Dell Poweredge 1950 Quad Zeon/ Debian Sqeeze 64bit at a colo facility I have access to.
It is called ... Ready for this? *drum roll* ---> "Tags-n-Bags TF2 Server" (oooohs and ahhhs go here.)
It needs some art work and the main menu/intro customized and a good map rotation. (I will work on this today a bit) [Edit: done]

Give me a shout on TS or reply here if your interested.
I am a long time player of TF2 and its always been one of those not so serious "fun" games.
I sometimes don't play for many months and then pick it up and recall how much freakin fun it is.
If you don't have it ... its FREE in the Steam Store... try it out. (Orangebox is $20 for cripes sakes)

Also check out http://tf2stats.net and see whats hot in the world of TF2

Now give me some BACON! (i want slabs and fresh cuts - NOT bits!)

also ... new to TF2:http://www.teamfortress.com/mvm/
* I am working on enabling this on our server now.

"Mann vs. Machine is a new co-operative game for Team Fortress 2 that lets you and five friends wage a desperate battle to stop a lethal horde of robots from deploying a bomb in one of Mann Co.’s many strongholds. Take advantage of breaks between waves to upgrade your abilities and weapons. Survive all the waves in any of a variety of missions to earn incredible loot."

Edit:
- Ok tis done so we can try it out. 3 mvm maps in the first 3 rotation slots. (about 1.5 Hours of playtime?)
- 6 Player Co-op it appears to be.
- Can change map rotation later if we get sick of it, but looks fun and requires a limited amount of people to play. (I think 2 to start)

Ok, I worked quite a bit today on the TF2 Server to represent the Tags-N-Bags Gaming Community.

HLSW setup is complete and working with rcon on my PC and on my Cell Phone (android app)
- I am still learning the rcon commands but know enough to monitor, change maps and be dangerous.

Official Info on the server can be found here: http://www.hlsw.org/gameserver/216.241.132.14:27015/HL2/Tags-n-Bags_TF2_Server

I added a map rotation that includes intelligent bots - http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Bots
The first 3 mvm maps do not use bots (yet)

What this means...
When you join the server intelligent bots will spawn on thos maps and you play with and against intelligent bots.
Bot difficulty is set to normal but can be increased to hard and even expert later on if needed.
If a human player joins the bot count gets replaced with human players.

Of coarse if a server admin is on the maps can change to whatever you want to play. (or voting can be used)

current map rotation:
mvm_coaltown
mvm_decoy
mvm_mannworks
koth_badlands
koth_lakeside_final
koth_sawmill
koth_nucleus
koth_viaduct_event
pl_upward
cp_dustbowl
cp_manor_event
pl_goldrush
cp_gorge
pl_barnblitz
koth_king

Practice up! and enjoy!

Just a note, bot servers generally get blacklisted by players.

Not sure why they would get black listed. I find the bots to be great competition and better than some human players tbh.
I am using official Valve supported intelligent bots and the server is in good standing and going up, not sure we are on the same.
I have had several players joining it during testing and stayed for many rounds.

Thanks for the tip but If a player joins a "dead" server they leave and find a populated one. I see no other way to get players without the bots.
Any thoughts?

Yup, you were right. After a day of the bots its started saying "standing: downward fast"

bots removed. doing more harm than good.

My brother plays some TF2, I'll see if I can't get him to join.

Also, Hello Haxor, hope to meet you on TS one of these days!
