This is a beautiful mod, but the problem is the behavior on the server(s)...

Last few weeks I saw crowded servers of 30.... so you go in expecting a good game. Only to find 10 people on the side of the Zulu's accompanied with 180 bots, dynamite sapper trolls, sappers who love to stack defenses skyhigh and ofcourse the tk'ers when friendly fire is on. I always try a round or two because I just love the mod, but no fun so I head over to the 15th bots vs humans server. Yes, they have their trolls, but in general you will find very good games there with people respecting server rules.

A few weeks ago this mod still had a good group of players who wanted to make a good game out of it. That is humans on the Brit side working together to beat the horde of Zulus (not 10 rambos on the other side making the balance of humans vs bots worse).
This mod can only be saved by the way servers are run and players behavior.

This mod is NOT dying.
If you really like this mod, I am sure the OP does, I advice not to start topics like this.

Better say: "This mod is a gem, lets get the word out to the community."  :)

I second the OP here.

I also understand that you can´t have an admin online 24/7.  But just take a look at the 15th's bot vs humans server. Sure if admins are gone the rats and trolls appear but in general the play is good at that server as there is an admin around regularly who is not afraid of banning.

This great Zulu mod will be hard to continue if the trolls keep coming back.

If you are thinking for options in the future, you could also think of the war in the Sudan (vs The Mahdists) . The Brit faction hardly needs a change for that.  And its virtually the same era  :)

First. I love this mod!

It is probably mentioned, but on the usage of Zulu javelins.

I believe the Zulu's fighting doctrine was mainly focussed on melee. The usage of javelins was not as big as it is in the mod right now. At times it feels like you are facing romans :-) The warriors would also not carry that many javelins with them. Most of the time you see Brits killed by javelins thrown over insane distances. Often just looking through a window means certain death.

Sure the battle of Rorkes Drift has been romanticed especially by the movie (hardly any javelins there), but after Islandlwana the Brits hardly repeated their mistake of facing the Zulus to openly, hence giving the mellee warriors a chance to overrun them. In fact in most battles hardly any Zulu would come closer than a 100 yards after the first hard lessons learned by the Brits (fortified camps, wagon trains and lots of clear ground surrounding it). So their javelins would virtually have no effect. In most cases it was pure slaughter.
Still, at Rorkes drift the 100 or so defenders managed to hold off 5.000 Zulus with relatively few casualties. As long as you keep the line behind a defense you in effect only had to deal with the first row of attackers not with the hundreds of warriors behind them. The challenge in Rorkes Drift was covering all sides and moving the defenders around. One open gap would mean that the Zulus would stream in. In this mod holding the line behind some bags is extremely hard as lots of defenders will be wiped out by the javelins (and rifles) before the melee starts.

Ofcourse the most important of a mod is balance and fun, so I suggest to do something about the hail of javelins the Brits face. Cheers!

Salute all. Long time. Partially due to health trouble since September. Slowly back on the track. Working half days, mostly from home.
Also back in the game again.

Saw that I am no longer on the roster. I can understand that. I request you to put me on the reserve list.

Yours sincerely, your servant,
