    I've been hearing a ton of stuff about vanilla. I've been playing on that server for a while now and haven't experienced anything bad about it.

    I like Vanilla when all the regulars come on. (Non rule breakers and not hackers/trolls)

    Um, yea. It's like watching a shit movie that's hilariously awful for free though.

    However, I believe 0.01% of everything is bad unless they get 11 kills or kill all traitors.

    It's worse when you can see reports made by people who have very little knowledge of the rules. Can get 20 reports with 3 valid in 2 rounds

    I always tell the young bloods the four cardinal rules of Vanilla when I am around:

    1. The aforementioned Bad comment above
    2. I'm the standard of bad so don't complain when I see you're obviously bad like I expect
    3. You can always trust me to get the job done
    4. RDM makes Vanilla what it is and to avoid the hell you just gotta git gud and take no shit

    I would enjoy it if there were more maps/server hosted in east not west, I haven't noticed a huge number of trolls in my time on vanilla though

    Exaggerations left and right. In comparison to non-STTT servers, it's pretty good. In comparison to other STTT servers, it's a little hectic, but still very fun. Some people can enjoy and find humour in the ridiculousness of it.

    Is Vanilla really that much more susceptible to trolls/chaos than the other servers? Cause I've been on the other STTT servers, and there's been times when there's a lot of trolls, RDMers and general shenanigans going on; never been on Vanilla, though.

    CDriscoll Lemme advise you VIP Bronze

    The reason Vanilla has its bad rep is because trolls look across the server list for servers like Vanilla, no downloads, so they can more easily and quickly come on to RDM/Hack/Troll, and they do just that. From a staff members point of view, there are many more reports than the other servers, but they are all petty and can be finished in less time.

    I think its just an ongoing joke that Vanilla is the Detroit of STTT servers, and everyone really exaggerates about it.

    Honestly, it's calm in the morning, gets worse in the afternoon, and reaches it's peak of dicks in the evening. If it's the summer, it tends to be worse.

    ryan4win I was supposed to do great things Banned VIP+ Silver

    Vanilla is only stressful for staff members because of the number or reports. The thing is the reports on vanilla are either invalid or mass RDM 4+ or RDM and leave. Just have to get on, get rid of the mass rdmers and it will calm down.
