OMG exo i love you <3 you said everything (most of things i want to say)
Events are a good idea to bring peoples and keep a variety in the server. We play with new and old players so everyone have to be ok with the maps played. It's also a good way to introduce new maps
Playing paranoid each week end isn't a good idea vanster... and it's not because of the gfl players who love that and come on cs frag we need to play it everytime lol. Even if it's a good map.
Also just for the "add more nex maps" why not adding maps that players know how to win.
Like for ex, Castlevania (which i love so much) is too hard to be add in nomlist, but the new fapescape (players can win it i see win until extr 2/3) could be added in some days (the time peoples are familiar with it) ?
I add one more thing, i play alot in GFL which i like too (even with that general autism) and peoples don't often vote for paranoid or mako, they play many diferents maps. Many times it's ancient wrath, westersand, paranoid, fapescape 1 and rote, lotr maps, random, skyrim, ff maps. but also old maps like jurrassic, nublar, ice escape (which is cool after playing a level map), moria etc.
A rating system is a cool idea but i imagine some abuse by players who can mad about an original map they can't know/play
