Which option about the future of Bartertown to you favour?

I love Bartertown as it is, no need to change anything.
I'd like to see Bartertown on a fixed location/date, makes it easier for me to get there.
I do not go to Bartertown, I do not care.

Bartertown relaunch
« on: March 05, 2016, 11:21:14 AM »
Over the last few weeks we canceled the Bartertown events because of the Champions of Oldschool games. Logistically it is impossible to do two events at the same time.
Running the event is not that much of work, its just picking a location, invite people to it and hope that they will not start to kill each other within 10 minutes. This worked more or less good apart from a little blood bath here and there. It was so successful that we had 17 Bartertowns on Oldschool -- and the idea is even copied on other servers :)

We could start Bartertown again and I thought about doing it a little bit different: I wanted to ask you guys what you think about making Bartertown a fixed location on a fixed day in month. So lets say Bartertown is in Polana on the first Sunday of the month. So we just would have one big forum threat for the Bartertown event.

Let me know what you think.

Polana, every 3 weeks between 8 pm and 10 pm. Kills within longrange shooting radios are banable. My opinion.
I'm the friendliest guy in Chernarus if you kill me I will be reborn, but if you kill my friends.... I WILL COME FOR YOU!

You can kill through a walkie talkie? ;)

My opinion is first sunday every month. Fixed location. Polana should be fine :)

I like the Bartertowns. Every 3 weeks was great. Not only for trade, also for the meeting between players. But once per month would make that one doesn't get bored and maybe there would be more people. Polana is an excellent location. And why not fixed.

Let me know what you think.
What about Dolina, it has a big rusty red barn to hold the bartertown in and is in the same area as Polana
Best courier pigeon in all Chernarus.

Polana was the first location for Bartertown. It has this little marketplace at the center of the town.

I don't mind some variance in locations, but how about sticking more to the coast? Polana, Dolina, etc. I've only been to 2 last bartertowns so far, and I liked Dolina much more than Lopatino because more people, even if freshspawns, attended it and more trades took place.

And you have to control Scouser better.

That's cool :)
Never went to a bartertown event, i will for the next one,
but I'll say it will be better to be in a "defendable" location where you cannot be sniped like a rabbit.
Let's say Devil Castle, or somewhere else in a top of a hill where the security staff can easily reject the bad guys.
In the wrong place, at the wrong time...

Bartertown is admin protected. Everyone sniping will get banned.
