    Looked last night and only two servers running it. I want to get a small group together to go play this mode and see it for ourselves. It would be kinda funny for fith to flood the furry stop the tank server as well...

    id like to see us try to bring the boxing server live with a stop the tank mode. Essentially a payload but red team blows up the tank (maybe tank health is scaled based on players in server?). Once tank blows up highest score player on blue gets to be a mecha giant (one of the big guys from mvm) and carries the bomb to last point unless he gets blown up. Anyone can pick up the bomb once the big guy dies and continues to bring it to last point.

    would eliminate chokes or ling term turtling for 5-10 minutes in a round. Plus it’s fun, even to pocket the big guys with medics (which is highly recommended)

    This again?

    Brood, you can take a crack at it if you want. I've wasted several hours trying to get this going. I'll help, but someone else needs to run point.

    Yeah, Don and I were talking about a sixes server and i thought about this again. It’s a cool game mode. Bummer to only see it on two servers, one of which being a little too cringey for even myself

    Let’s group up and test run on a 3rd party server before we invest time in doing it. I could hunt down the creators and see if they might be able to lend a helping hand. The original servers were not a community, and just a place to play that mode. I think that was a large part of their failure

    Sounds good!

    Didn't mean to get negative on your post. I had a lot of frustration with this in the past.

    We should quit focusing on our failures, such as the space engineers debacle, and enjoy our successes. Like Dr. Thor's MVM server.

    Had a group of us, general consensus was better than our boxing server...

    maybe Brood can chime in, he said he used to play stop the tank a lot way back when in the beforefor times
