    Hey Vanilla players!
    I'm rather interested in what makes you prefer Vanilla severs over the others that are fully packed with multitudes of game mechanics such as Jihad, ton of maps, collections of weapon as well.
    Therefore, I would love to collect statistics and feedback and analyze them for future content consideration.

    If you don't mind, please do make your votes and if that isn't enough, leave some posts and tell us more about it. It does helps!

    You can choose more than 1 choice. All votes are confidential.

    Thank you!

    Hop on one of em when newer players are on, get out an AK, go to town. You can wipe half the server as a T before they can stop you.

    Initially didn't know what Vanilla meant in TTT. Asked why everyone kept bringing up ice cream. Joined, was hectic at first, but met some pretty awesome people, and still enjoy it months after first joining.

    Back before I had my computer I would play on Vanilla because the modded servers would lag too much with all the addons, maps and all that jazz. Playing vanilla (before I got my computer) allowed me to play with textures on medium/high and have 60-100+ FPS while on the modded I needed low textures and still only had 30 FPS.

    I also had worse internet at the time, and playing on Vanilla allowed me to load in faster while in the modded I loaded in maybe a round in

    Sometimes I hop over to try out different things as a t. So I'm not using some of the things available on modded servers.

    Although this is super rare.... I hate vanilla..... Like.. A lot....

    A multitude of reasons.

    Much like pandora I had, and still do have a shitty laptop. Until Highwon changed the way we loaded into modded servers my computer would crash each time I tried (and that change didn't happen until he brought forward EU2). So I mained vanilla because it was all I could play. Aside from that, the funny people also kept me around.

    Why do I play vanilla even now when i can wander to the modded servers?? Cause they deserve a staff member who has spent 900+ hours collectively staffing both the hectic places so that some peace can be restored and the regulars and new players alike can join and enjoy it without having to leave cause they get RDMed or Trolled every round.

    Vanilla players are great for target practice since they don't know how to play the game.

  20. Well I frequented it a lot before joining the team (like 794 hours)
    Mainly because it was the first server I joined here so it kinda became my "home" server, and I met a lot of people I liked (@Smittywerbenjegermanjenson @SantasLilSnooper @Jackie The Bucket Husky etc ect *cough cough*) so I stuck around. It was fast to load into and fun to play and almost always had people in it.
