Hey Guys. My friend just finished building my super bada** gaming computer. I have to install COD4 but for the life of me I can't remember which patch your servers are on. Please let me know. Thanks.

The servers are running the out of the box game. We did not run any patches due to the large amount of cheaters on patched versions.

To stay sort of on topic; if we ever go the route of a modified server, my first vote would be to limit helicopter strength. I played on a server before that made the helicopter very weak. It would get three kills total if lucky, but usually zero or just one kill in the time it is in the air.

Even though I am one that gets more than my share of helicopters in most games, I still feel this way. I used to think that getting a copter was a reward for the player that got seven kills in a row. After years of playing, I now realize it is more of a punishment for those that don't play to try and get seven in a row, and also those that are new to the game (beginners). I am amazed at how many low level beginners there are playing COD 4. This is a good thing, as it keeps the server fresh and gives me hope that COD 4 will have a large enough following for many years to come. But the helicopter "punishment" is detrimental to them and their gameplay. I often find it rough for veterans also. They can find themselves barely into the game and already fighting off a killer copter less than 30 seconds in. This often isn't because of the hard work of the veteran enemy, but the punishment of the five or more beginners that took it on the chin and didn't even know what hit them. Then the whole balance of a game can go south for the team fighting these killer copters all day. Even savvy veterans often cannot get a dismal team out of the hole because they are getting slaughtered by the enemy copters. The scores become waaaaay exaggerated for one team, or player(s). I often have my own scores way exaggerated for this very reason. I don't earn sometimes as much as 50% of my kills based on my skill. But my slaughtering copters are deadeye killers.

Now I wouldn't have a problem not calling a copter when I get seven in a row, but I do it just so the enemy can't for 1-2 minutes. If I am not calling mine, I am fighting off theirs.

Just food for thought.

I am able to change the helicopter strength on our servers all you had to do is ask...I have changed them to half strength on TDM and Paper Machete on the FFA servers... so they should be pretty easy to shoot down from this point forward.

I'm glad you brought that up Left4dead. Before coming to the Scare server, I used to play on the s*8 server and they "nerfed" their chopper as well. It only took one clip from an M4 or similar weapon to take it down. Because my weapon of choice is the Skorpion, trying to take down the chopper on yout server was just a waste of ammo for me, until now.

Then I ask!
Thanks Crow! I think it will be a good change and I will give you feedback from others if I get any.
