Map Voting Issue?

So I've noticed that the maps I am voting on and the map that loads up aren't the same.

Just tested this twice. Voted for LincolnNW and got Helmzdeep. Voted for Timeless and got Hyrule castle.

The really weird part is on the map voting list, Lincoln and Timeless show as being recently played despite not being the map that loaded up.

UT2004 servers often crash after a map is completed. So we have a script that selects a different map randomly when that happens. Your map vote was still successful, so it appears in the recently played list. You'll notice that the random map does not appear in that sequence.


Not every server has a crash script like ours. Otherwise the server would load the same map after every single crash, which would be annoying. Some servers have a special server crash map that kills the players and forces them to vote, but those waste a lot of time.

Makes sense.

I thought an pretty funny April Fool's joke was accidentally turned on.

Thanks!
