TL;DR - Retakes #1 and #2 have preferred config for pistol selection. Make pistol selection independent for pistol rounds and gun rounds for server #3.

To preface, retakes #1 and #2 have the same configs and seem to be the most popular servers for people to fill into first.

Server #3 config is the only different one where it has SMG rounds between pistol rounds which give it a nice mix after playing in #1 or #2 for a while. However, the pistol selection selects your pistol for both pistol rounds and gun rounds. This makes pistol rounds very annoying for people who want to use any pistol other than usp or glock for the remainder of the rounds.

Unsure if it is possible, but if pistol selection can be separate between pistol rounds and gun rounds for server 3 like it is in the other 2 servers, I know I would personally be more inclined to go to that server more often. I've discussed this with a few other aivd retake players and we seem to share a similar opinion.

I know I could just use !guns before and after pistol rounds to ensure that I have usp or glock then switch back to my preferred pistol after pistol rounds but this messes with the fluidity of playing and I personally would rather stay on the servers where I don't have to worry about editing my weapon selection anymore than I desire to.

Thanks.

Sorry for the delay on response - this is feedback I love to see!

I initially put a different weapon allocator on Retakes #3 as a test run to see how it went - but didn't really get any feedback, so it just kind of sat there.

So to be absolutely clear, what I'm gathering is - the weapon allocator on Retakes #3 would be superior to all, provided a separate pistol for buy rounds would be able to be selected?

Edit: As a stop-gap, if a USP/P2000 or Glock was given on full rounds, would this alleviate some of the switching? It's not that often when playing where you purchase an upgraded secondary during a buy round, unless you are wildly ahead of the other team.

Sorry for my delay on this response!

Yes, your edit is exactly what I was thinking. I like that Retakes #3 has round layouts more similar to that of an official match. I think the switching could be alleviated by either making default pistols the only thing possible on full rounds or by having the same pistol config as the other two servers.

I like the idea of having the pistol selection for pistol rounds since that can be expected in an official match. And while having an upgraded pistol during full rounds is nice, it isn't necessarily typical.

I think overall, whatever can be done to make Retakes #3 have the most similar layout to an official match would be interesting to see or at least try for a while. Hopefully I can intrigue some other avid retakers to put in some feedback as well and over time, optimize each server configuration to be unique and offer something different from the others.

Thanks for your consideration!
