    If anything changes for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, we will most likely add it to the gaming event. There is no direct way of tracking stats

    What's being done to get the server admins to help seed the servers during events? i think it's a bit pointless to have dead weight for server admins around if they refuse to play on the servers during events.

    EVGA refuses to changes how the events work, that limits them to only being able to add games they can track time played.  
     
    I remember when you could play for any amount of time and qualify for a chance to win any of the prizes. Now it's been raised to 35hrs.  Wheres that time requirement for the social media giveaways??

    Yeah... 2.5 hours per day, every day the event is running, to reach 35 hours played. That's a pretty tough level to hit. On top of that, there's not a 0 tolerance policy in place for idlers (separate from seeding a server), so it's just a cat and mouse game of people idling until (if) they get caught and by that time they've already idled a significant amount.

    There's a problem with at least 2 of the TF2 servers and tracking time. After roughly 5 minutes of being on the server, it stops tracking time (and deaths/kills).
     
    This includes both trying to seed a server and when actually playing vs another player. I spent maybe 10 minutes in a 1v1 situation on the control point NY server (70.42.74.85:27015) and none of the time or kills/deaths was tracked. I also spent maybe 20 minutes trying to seed the dodgeball server but it would only track about 5 minutes, and stop tracking, until I reconnected.

    If you have some spare time, send an email to evga management to voice your concern about the new 35hr requirement for top tier prizes. If enough people send feedback, maybe they will lower it for the next event in July.
     
    These event are suppose to be friendly to casual gamers. Setting 20-35hr for level 4-5 prizes goes against that.  The higher time requirement has done nothing to address the empty US/EU servers.

    The CS:GO servers could be managed a little better.
     
    sv_maxrate 786432
    sv_maxcmdrate 128
    sv_maxupaterate 128
     
    Instead of using the built in Valve game modes, it would be better to use a server mod to manage it. For death match, you can have a server mod set up to have everyone be an enemy (not team based), and so that you can select whatever gun(s) you want, instead of being forced to select guns from whatever team you joined. You can also have things like every time you get a kill, your ammo is automatically reset to full, instead of being forced to reload, or every time you get a kill, you get a small amount of health.
     
    It would also be great to have some more variety. Surf server, KZ server, Bunny Hop server, etc. All of those things can be on 1 server and just have it change with whatever the map is. Rotating in new maps every now and then could keep it fresh. Aim servers are also fun.
     
    A 1v1 server could also be great if set up right, and I think it might be the best bet to bringing in players outside of events. Many of the 1v1 servers I used to frequent were seemingly full 24/7, and it was often hard to even get in to one.

    It would still be nice if we can get a Domination server in BF4. Ppl idle bc playing 64 player CQ maps 5v5 for 35 hours isn't fun its tedious. Also does BF1 not have stat tracking?

    So do the hours combine across servers for this event? Like playing on one server than playing on another or was it necessary to get all 35 on one server?
